    it did but they support in the sense they keep making it.
    they call akaio.net on their page the "official" firmware

    so it comes as a slight to us when you make these topics.

    apparently we now make the software.... or something

    Except that's not true.

    The AceKard team was one of the first to release a fix for 1.4.1. If they "don't give a shiit for us players", they wouldn't have released a fix.
    There has been fear and essentially threats of Normmatt leaving/stopping the AKAIO development of AKAIO which could put a damper on things, but based on the AceKard teams quick response to the DSi's 1.4.1 firmware update I would guess that they'd pick up updating of the official menu again.


    The "point" of this topic is about the AceKard official menu, which AKAIO essentially fills that role. Why should the AceKard team attempt to compete against AKAIO for updates?
    Now if this was about the AceKard team not adding much requested features (or at least offering a response as to why it wouldn't or couldn't be added) such as Real-Time Save and In-Game Cheats, then I would agree.

    You're an idiot. Why would they want to waste their time releasing game fixes if it's recommended for everybody to use AKAIO, and everybody uses AKAIO anyways. There's no point. Acekard fixed 1.4.1 fw with a fix within a day.

    Well, if they get to a point of above AKAIO quality (unlikey but still) AKAIO team lose a bit of honour (since they only get payed in thank you's and respect by us Acekard owners) so AKAIO team will have more incentive to make AKAIO better and since Acekard has went through the effort of making a firmware they'll try to compete with AKAIO which will result in faster and better releases on both sides which is good for us.

    Unfortunately that will never happen.

    And before anyone whines at me for anything I've said above (there's bound to be at least one), it's would be a good thing for us (better firmware), AKAIO (more respect) and Acekard have better firmware for their cart which results in even more recommendations for the cart. Win-Win-Win so stop whining!


    I'd like Acekard to make a AK2i V2 fixing the contact issues most people have, I've never had an issue myself but so many people do.

    Acekard team sucks the big one. What they should be doing is working with Normat to roll out new features, fix bugs, or just make the card better, but no they just mass produce a cheap card and the hell with it. Let someone else work on the software side. There's nothing special about the Acekard they just lucked out with Akaio.

    WTF are you all talking about.

    Normmatt, Smiths and the original Acekard team work very closely together. The Acekard team provide a lot of help with AP fixes and the like. Just because the work is being done in the background and out of site doesn't mean they are around sitting bone idle.

    Now, can someone please close this thread before the development teams get really pissed and decide to fuck the lot of us?

    Why would they bother trying to compete with AKAIO when it's clearly more popular, it's a waste of time. But the Acekard team, when needed, always are the one of the first to act.

    Yeah why would you bother supporting your product. That's just such a crazy idea isn't it? I never said they should compete with Akaio I said they should work with the Akaio team to solve problems, fix bugs, add features. So yeah since they don't support their product they suck. They are just one of many cards the only thing that sets them apart from the DSTT is Akaio. So the Acekard is a run of the mill card and the team that supports it sucks but Akaio is really good.

    So releasing fixes doesn't count as supporting their card? As said, Acekard team have already made AKAIO the official firmware.
