    Recently I downloaded the newest AKAIO for my Acekard 2i to be able to play Wario Ware DIY, but now my save files from my other games have been completely wiped out. The .sav files are still on the microSD (they didn't get erased), but now they don't work with the roms. Before I had the regular Acekard 2i firmware, but had to switch to AKAIO to play WarioWare DIY. Is there a way to make my .sav files work again? If not, does anybody at least have a good .sav file for EU Picross 3D with at least more than 20% completion. I especially do not want to start that game over as I was enjoying it and don't want to unlock the puzzles all over again.

    Not so far
    Set the save file extension to .nds.sav in the system options.

    Make sure your game files end in .sav (lowercase) and not .SAV (Uppercase). Also see if your files are *.nds.sav or *.sav files. Double check your save file settings in AKAIO too.

    Make sure your save files are either *.sav or *.nds.sav. If they are *.SAV, the need to be lowercased. You can use this batch file that tk-staurn created. Link. This batch file belongs and was completely created by tk-saturn I simply mirrored it. Place that bat file where your saves are on your MicroSD and run it.

    If they are *.nds.sav, make sure that's set in in the System Settings.

    Mine work perfectly and are:
    nameofgame.sav
    But has to be exactly right
    For example if the rom is:
    pokemonsoulsilver.nds
    The sav has to be pokemonsoulsilver.sav I always have mine in lowercase (sav)
