So I have an R4, which worked pretty well, minus the whole only SD and not SDHC things (which is stupid because they sold it to me with an 8gb SDHC...), but it recently stopped working, for no explainable reason.
I trolled a bit on these forums, and decided that my new replacement would be an Acekard2, at least until the Supercard DSTWO is out.
Anyways, I found one for about $10, so no big deal, but my question is this:
Will my save files from the R4 chip be rendered unusable? That is to say, will I have to start from scratch with all of my games, or will the save files from the R4 work on the Acekard2?

Edit: Also, in a related question, will I then have to start over once again once I get a Supercard 2?

Sweet. That's a load off my mind.
Replaying Elite Beat Agents on Sweatin' would be kind of a pain...

I'm assuming this also applies to the Lameboy emulator? It uses a 512kb save file, but I'm not sure if that's what it uses for the actual save files...

Lameboy doesn't have any save file. It's created by R4 kernel for some reason but it's a dummy file, if you look inside it's basically empty. On Acekard this file isn't created. The saves are created for individual games, and sram data is also saved if the game supports it.

    it would be bad PR to sue a translation team if your not localllizing the game yourself

    all i can say is this will more than likely make Nintendo more lawsuit happy than ever before. till someone actually stand firm against them and takes it to court. i know if the yuzu devs sat up a gofundme for the legal fees it could have been feasible too take them
    on.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    Oh I have no doubt that Yuzu devs had the money, their Patreon was bringing in almost $30,000/month
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    They just paid them 2.4mill of course they could afford a legal battle but why they probably had more dirt and caved the public doesn't know about.
  • PrincessLillie @ PrincessLillie:
    I've heard rumors that Yuzu devs had a private stash of early Switch dumps they shared among themselves, in order to fix bugs in the emulator early
    That could definitely have complicated things
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Imho that letter went out just to get communities to feel sorry for them and it worked out well imagine 30k a month in your pockets over an emulator
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Good on them if they actually paid the devs with it just doesn't really add up
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Geez I'm tired of hearing about it already, lol k3nv2

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:

  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    I didn't say which one
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Its crazy the price of some game assets for making games, makes me wanna start making some and selling them myself. I've made my own for games I've made, just never looked at what people were getting for them online.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Make a early beta of the switch 2 as a emulator keep it until Nintendo announces the next version register the domain add ransom ware per every download
