AKAIO ROM Compatibility
This page is a starting point for addressing any game issues you might encounter.
Try a combination of the various modes. Default with green loading text is DMA-QuickSave mode. Holding X with red loading text is the older DMA mode. Holding A with blue loading text is the Non-DMA mode.
PLEASE TRY ALL MODES FIRST!
Current AKAIO Loader
Always use the current AKAIO loader. The latest version may contain fixes that address your concerns.
Unzip the file for your cart and place it in the _aio/loaders folder on your microSD card.
