In short, not sure where else I can share this, or if there's somewhere I can submit a bug report to the AKAIO devs to hopefully get it addressed. I went from 1.7.1 to 1.8.1, in part because some of the newer games required it (and the Bypass Antipiracy options absent in 1.7.1). Well, with AKAIO in general, I can't hop from app to app anymore like I used to, and appreciated with the acekard loader and akaio previously. I can soft-reset back to akaio after loading a game fine, but then if I reload the same game, or load a different one, it just black screens. It doesn't matter if it's homebrew, a real game, or anything. The same thing happens every time and it's pretty annoying to say the least. Given that I usually liked to switch back and forth between games on a whim, this rather gets in the way of doing just that. Second issue, pertaining specifically to Sonic Colors. For whatever reason, even after enabling the bypass AP and stuff specifically to its ROM, it won't seem to "hold" any save data or progress. Each new time I reload the game from scratch, I run the risk of simply having to start from scratch as well, and lately the game won't even let me off the initial 'planet' to explore the others, even after meeting the requirements to open up the other areas. HWID I have is 44, so it is a legit Acekard 2i, so I don't know what the deal or problem is here. *EDIT* On a somewhat related note, one thing that's rather annoying is how the akaio never seems to "respect" the configured settings in the ini file, whether I change them internally from the loader, or within the .ini file on my computer. Has there been any remedy to that?
