    so i tried DIY with the new AKAIO firmware and the regular microgame stuff saves great, glad that got fixed!!!!

    however.....

    whenever i mess with the jukebox or comic maker and try to load/view records/comics i've created it locks up, just like it did with regular microgame stuff before the new firmware fix

    is this something the AKAIO guys overlooked when making the fix, or is it some other issue i can fix myself?????


    is this happening to anyone else???

    you can fix it yourself by changing the filesize of the save in the options

    oh, so the savefile changer thing is in megaBITS not megaBYTES..... i did change it to 32MB so i'll try changing to 256MB now

    that means that my 32MB save wont work now, right? and i'm gonna have to go through all those tutorials again????? damn............

    edit: changed to 256MB, everything works fine, including all my previous save data!!!!!! muchos gracias!!!!!!

    Mb = Megabits
    MB = MegaBytes
    8 bits = 1 Byte

    256Mb = 32MB (256/8 = 32)

    how do I change my save file's size?
    I have a patcher that makes it into a 1mb file but that's it.

    edit: figured it out ^^

    I tried this, And the LOADING bar at the start carries on flashing.
    It still freezes back on the smaller M, though :/

    I had the same flashing loading bar problem;
    what i did to fix that was actually change my save file to unknown/auto instead of 256M. It worked fine and saved okay after that.

    Actually, when I started to play, it turs out that it starts and saves, but still freezes at some points.
    Im guessing that its due to the fact that the save file is not 256M.

    Im pretty sure that i have 1.6rc2...

    There is not a 256M option on my save file. Do you know what the problem is? The top says akAIO Release 1.4.1, but I have the 1.6.RC2.rar in my main folder. (Not rom folder).

    Putting the RAR onto your MicroSD card does absolutely nothing.

    Think of it as you buying something from the store... lets say a TV for example.
    You are pretty much leaving it unopened in the box and wondering why you can't see anything.

    are people serious? they need to make pirating harder, when a kid doesnt even know about rar files theres somthing wrong *sigh* things are too easy, kids dont read anything and cant even do the simple things. when i was a kid i messed about with simple hacking tools and didnt have the help of the people there are today on a forums like this i HAD TO READ UP on things. its like on the wii forums "i downloaded 48 rar files but i dont know what to do with them i want to play this game so much"
