I've purchased a acecard 2 from here :http://www.gizzards.co.uk/catalog/acekard-2-p-70.html yesterday

and after browsing around these forums i've come to realize that there is a 'acekard 2.1' that they released because of 'errors' with the one i bought?.. wtf ?.. I've done alot of researching to buy my cart - had an edge before but gave it to my little sister, I liked the OS of acekard, but now i have a shitty verson of one, great.

what kind of errors are they?.. do the cards just die or what?

That doesn't answer the question I'm asking, i've obviously read that thread otherwise i wouldn't be making this thread.

WHAT KIND OF ERRORS are they, does the card just die?.. also which i forgot to ask - do you guys think that maybe theone i bought is a actually 2.1 version? as that thread is from august 08

its very possible you got 2.1. likely, even.

the errors weren't anything too serious, else there would be more topics on gbatemp about them

are the version 2 acekards much different from 2.1, or does it not really matter?

The 2.1 version has a couple of hardware issues (most notably the FAT error) fixed, and IIRC there is no longer a bulge under the Totally Rad Shiny label.

Stop being a fucking douche, does it say "ver 2.1" at the bottom of the Acekard sticker? If it doesnt, then you don't have a version 2.1.

The older cards may have had poor soldering and after the card has been in use for awhile, may stop working (commonly giving a "FAT ERROR" message during startup).

I'd say not working is a pretty serious problem, but you may not be affected, but you wont know for a few months anyway (it looks like it takes about that long).

fucking douche? wtf ? are you blind? i've just bought the cart on the internet, It's physically impossible to read something that i don't have.

How about next time you ask the seller instead of a forum of people who didn't sell you the product you just bought.

I think that you guys seriously need to use YOUR EYES, and READ threads before you post..

Maybe you should research the things you buy before you buy them, and since neither gbatemp nor anyone here sold you the item, how do you expect us to know what version they have in stock.

But not only that, you said "i've come to realize that there is a 'acekard 2.1' that they released because of 'errors' with the one i bought"....

"errors with the one i bought" ... that implies you knew you bought an older, affected version.

I thought i had researched them lol, obviously not enough and I expect you to know because people on here seem to know alot about the carts and when 'batches' contain certain 'versions.

to answer your question CLEAN YOUR HANDS YOU SCUMBAG

There are even newer 2.1's (with a blue PCB) that are sturdier because they're glued shut. I bet if you glued yours shut it would be just as sturdy though.

    I was decent enough up until Madden 23. Like Madden 22 I had a pretty good w/l record using the Bucs. Madden 23, 24, and 25 beta I just get stomped all the time. Horrible record on all three.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    although the 25 beta were friendly matches only, my record would have been very bad just the same.
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    @BigOnYa I think the series S would have been better with disk drive.

    It did not need 2k graphics, They could have sent it out with 1080P or even even 720p
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I play Madden 24 often on gamepass, its ok. Me and few buddies play together on same team sometimes, is fun
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Id rather play the ncaa game but dont have the $ for it. Imo both should be included with PS+ and Game Pass.
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    I think they should have doen user upgradable hard drive

    i spent my $ on black myth wukong preorder.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    It will be on gamepass/EA Play eventually they said, planning on 2025
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    yeah, when 26 is about to release or very shortly after

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    22 was on gamepass and had tons of players. but they removed it Feb 29th and pretty hard to find a match now.
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Get 24 then, it on gamepass now, plenty of peeps play that
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    i had 24 since before it went on game pass.

  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    I dont play because it's no fun to lose all the time. lol. Like I said, madden 22 and early I was pretty decent at. Not sure all what mechanics changed since 23 but I win like 1 of every 10 games. Then when I do win, they try to pause glitch me or leave with a few seconds left in the 4th. lol
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    Yea I hate players like that, sore losers. You could always just start a season against computer, but I know not as fun.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    if im getting completely stomped at halftime, like 28-0, ill just concede and let them have the win. No fun to keep playing the 2nd half. Haha. And not fair to not just give them the win.
    +1
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    But when other people quit without conceeding, I often enough get a loss for it even though I was winning.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Year after year after year they dont fix that. Or the pause glitch people keep doing, or trying to do.

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I read online people have changed they're timezone on Xbox system to play games few hours early, I wonder if that is a bannable offense. Oh well not gonna risk it, I can wait till midnight.
  • RedColoredStars @ RedColoredStars:
    Another thing I cant stand, glitch players. They use a glitch play they know your defense will fail at. And they know if you dont know how to adjust for it. They will just do the same play after play after play after play. lol. But they're not so crafty on defense and usually only win by spamming.
