    I read that the AK2i can use .sav files or .nds.sav files (which i assume is the same except just named differently?)

    I'm not sure, and i forgot where I saw this, I scanned through the AKAIO gbatemp wiki page but couldnt find anything.

    Well the point is I wanna know if i can transfer my save files directly from my old ass R4 straight into the AK2i Without conversion, any help/info will be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance, Kingfield.

    i am not sure on the .sav and .nds.sav

    but YES you can use your r4 .sav on ak2i
    and it should not be any problem
    i have been messing with saves from various flash card to here and there [​IMG] so far so good

    just make sure the game name and the save name is the same

    What elixirdream told you is true, you can use R4 saves as long as the nds name matches the sav name.

    Now for the .sav & .nds.sav names, AKAIO has a function to set its sav type to .nds.sav because the Acekard FW was formatted like that. So members switching ftom Acekard to AKAIO can don't have to rename all of their saves. There is no difference between the two save types except their name.

    To switch save types in AKAIO, Start --> System Option --> Tap R twice --> Sav Ext.

    Thanks a bunch, It was a bit confusing, now that's sorted out.

    The .savs being closer to raw saves was 20% of the reason of me getting AK2i over waiting for M3i Real.

    (5% of the reason was cuz i didnt wanna wait as well).

    The other 75% is because AKAIO seems to have a really good team and active support and fixes [​IMG])
