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.

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)

    It's not about that it's about managing your funds and surviving

    @Minox i have yet to see a can of spaghetti cheaper than just a bag of spaghetti lol
  • The14thfly @ The14thfly:
    maybe they meant the pasta + sauce ? but even then, its still cheaper
  • The14thfly @ The14thfly:
    since you get more spaghetti out of a bag
  • Minox @ Minox:
    Same, hence my confusion

  • Minox @ Minox:
    Worst case even just spaghetti will give you quite a bit of energy even without anything extra
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    Uh oh spegetios
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Half a pound of ground beef can go for like $4 alone here
  • Psionic Roshambo @ Psionic Roshambo:
    With meatballs!!! Was on sale the other day I got 2 cans for 1.25 lol
  • Minox @ Minox:
    I see 0.78usd spaghetti that would surely be enough for a few meals
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    It's processed shit but at least it can make you believe it's there
  • Minox @ Minox:
    Fry a bit of minced meat with some onions and tomatoes and you have a decent enough meal
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    And all the ingredients would still cost you more
  • Minox @ Minox:
    Would they though? Make a decent enough batch and eat for a few days and it'll even out
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    Depends on inflation rates like I said half a pound of ground beef here is like $4 vs 4 cans for $4 that's processed
  • Minox @ Minox:
    To make it even more economical you can add more vegetables
  • Minox @ Minox:
    That is, change the ratio of meat to vegetables
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    But still more you'd spend but whatever floats your boat
  • Minox @ Minox:
    I highly doubt that'd be the case, but maybe no need to continue this argument
  • Minox @ Minox:
    It seems like we both don't want to :P
  • kenenthk @ kenenthk:
    No argument theirs just ways to save and we don't always think about grand totals
