    I have a few questions concerning my SuperCard MiniSD
    Why does Mother 1+2 (and only M1+2) go into sleep mode when I press L+R+Select (This happens when I try to do L+R+Select+A to save) I tried multiple roms.
    How do I save in Game Boy and Game Boy Color Games?
    How do I use my SCMSD in DS mode in conjunction with an AceKard?
    Pokemon rom hacks (PKMN My Ass is the only one I have tried) and R/S will not save, at all, but FR/LG are fine.
    Any help is appreciated, Thanks for reading!

    If it's just those two games, then chances are it's the game itself that recognizes the L+R+Select button combo as a command to go into sleep mode. Not much you can do about that, other than using QPC saving.

    http://www.pocketheaven.com/ph/wiki/index.php?title=Supercard#QPC_Saving

    For GB/GBC games, first off, don't use the built-in emulator as it's ancient and the newer versions of Goomba Color are much better. Run your Goomba Color compilation through the Supercard patcher with as few settings as possible, and save with either the L+R+Select+A button combo or the QPC method.

    To run the Supercard in DS mode, you need to figure out how to make your AceKard function like a "NoPass" device, which will then boot the slot-2 card in DS mode. You will then be able to run unpatched *.nds homebrew games, and patched *.dsq commercial games.

    No clue about the Pokemon hacks however, sorry.

    Chances are, your slot 1 Acekard has NoPass functions. What is your Acekard slot 1 exactly?

    2i, but I am going to get ahold of a 2.1 due to contact issues, and yes I have used the help thread for that.

    In that case, there's an option to boot Slot 2 from the Acekard menu. You can either boot in DS mode or GBA mode, select the former and you'll be able to boot your Supercard in DS mode
