    I want to hear why people like and use Acekard over carts like CycloDS and SuperCardDS1(i). I know that the features arent as great with the Acekard. Is it price and/or DSi compatibility? I have a CycloDS and only a DSLite. I am getting a Supercard DS2 because of GBA emulation without needing my 3in1. Fixes are released about as often for each cart. So I want to know why Acekard? If normatt quit, it would be dead. Does that scare anyone?

    I don't wanna sound rude but there are loads of similar topics already about the pros/cons of acekard. It would keep this board cleaner and easier to read if you checked those topics out first.
    Pretty sure you'll find all your questions are already answered.

    Whatevz. If a mod wants to delete, go for it. I just wanted some fresh info. Thanks for the kindness kineticUK, but that thread has nothing to do with my questions.

    I wasn't trying to sound like a dic* though, its not my board anyway so ask what you like...
    and to answer your other questions yeah I was scared when I thought akaio would go private and that would mean I would see no more updates... cause I like akaio over all the other cards I have used so far. Mainly because I don't like/need RTS, slowmotion etc. I like that everything works almost like its retail... wii connect, some gba support with 3in1+, ram for browser hmm, rumble etc. Plays my games, I like the linkage with pokemon gba games and hope to use that later on when I finish playing platinum (1st time pokemon). I think the supercard will be good if it allows you to use the extra processor in homebrew, and it sounds like the business but I don't need to switch and like akaio OS more than any other I have used.
    Cheers

    In a word 'trust'

    I trust Normatt and other members of the homebrew community. We hope they will continue with their suppport and so far they have given us more than I would have ever expected.

    I do not trust the support of companies who produce the carts. We would expect they would continue support for the carts we have purchased. Most companies have let us down sooner rather than later on that expectation.

    For me it was price and the fact I had already made some custom skins before actually ordering the card x3


    However, akaio hasn't failed me yet :3

    This is an English speaking board. Post in English, not Spanish.

    You should also give a reason why the OP shouldn't buy an Acekard, not simply because "I do not like my acekard"

    It's one of the cheapest carts, it runs games great (Akaio), the layout is great, and pretty much has no flaws in my opinion.

    The only thing is, it's doesn't run a lot of homebrew games from my experience, but I could careless about those.

    Good price, ease of use, well supported. That's why I got mine and I love it.

    It's cheap it has near enough 100% compatibility with all roms and regular updates from Normmatt.
