    Ok here's the deal ive been playing pokemon soulsilver and had to restart twice. Each time I reached kanto i'd save at some point and turn it off. Some time later I turn it back on and the game completely restarts. I have to start over. I'm sick and tired of having to play through the game for a third time if it resets.

    Anyone experiencing this or know what this is?

    Btw I'm using acekard 2i with akaio 1.6 rc2

    It's on the latest firmware. Another thing I forgot to mention is that when I'm in johto everything plays fine. It only reset after going on the ship to vermillion city

    Try increasing the save size. I have mine set at 8M but you could try higher.

    Nope, try backing up game saves and going from there.

    They said 8M. Maybe meant to be 8Mb (megabits), which is equal to 1MB (megabyte).

    If you are having trouble check your the size of your save file on your PC. If it isn't already 1MB then do the following.
    Highlight the game in akAIO press Y and then Y again for ROM settings. Change the savetype to 8M wich is a 1MB save.

    For the love of god use an 8Mbit save file!
    Platinum used one, and it screwed up in a similar way when you got far enough with a lower-size save.
    Plus there's not much point in not doing it, esp. if it protects your save game.

    nice but it's not crashing, the game just completely resets when I turn it back on after getting that far
