Here is the latest version of the Wifi plugin for AKAIO flash cart OS such as Acekard 2i , With this plugin , you can back up and restore your saves online,saves are kept track of by your unit's MAC address, so saves uploaded with one unit can only be downloaded back to that unit.
And also please notice that this feature may not work for everybody because DS's WiFi library is notoriously unreliable at best in regards to compatibility with certain routers.
You can download it from here: akaio wifi pluginHere is more info about it
Okay so I felt this one deserves a thread. Not really for troubleshooting or anything, since as you know the Wifi on the DS via dswifilib is garbage.
I've done all I can do with it right now to keep it going, but it will not work for everyone and will be more reliable for some than for others
However, I feel it's releasable in a "proper" way, so here goes:
The 5/03/11 Release of the Wifi Plugin includes a function I was inspired to do by a random "dream gremlin" and managed to get working.
I guess you can call it "Cloud Saving", but I prefer "Online Save Backup/Restoration"
What this is is a function that will load up with the Wifi Plugin and present you wish a File Browser, listing .SAV games you have on your card.
You will be able to navigate directories and select a file, which will then prompt you for Zipping and Uploading of the SAV to our AKAIO.net host (where wifi plugin and loaders reside)
This is "local" mode.
There is "remote" mode, where it will connect to the AKAIO server and populate a listbox of your backed up saves. you can then select a SAV game, and have it download and unzip. you get to choose the destination and it will prompt for overwriting, etc.
Okay, so the whole "wtf?" Questions I can perceive....
Q) How do I access this?
A) From Wifi Page: PERMA-NOTES: To show new menu, set to 'Show on Load' in AKAIO, press 'X'. You'll notice the new button in the Wifi Menu once the plugin loads.
Q) Where are these things stored?
Q) Are you collecting information about me? How is this secure?
A) Uploads are filed according to MAC address of the DS Unit. So a ZIP is created, uploaded, tagged, moved around, etc... is it secure? I dunno. As secure as any wifi traffic. the only people with access to the server are myself and Norm, and to be honest we don't give a **** about your saves.
Q) Can other people get my saves?
A) This isn't a "save sharing service". I don't even know if it is a service. It could potentially be useful to us if you have a problematic game and a SAV file you want us to test... I just came up with that scenario as I was typing this and picking my nose at the same time. Anywho, your saves are tied to your DS Unit; it will only upload to its "area" and will only list SAVs to download from its "area"
Q) HA HA I'M going to upload a billion megs and kill your server!
A) Everyone has a quota. It's not super huge because saves typically are 1KB up to 16KB once zipped. I can change the quota whenever I feel. I'm being generous currently, but I drink a lot. It's NHL season, so I drink even harder. Don't poke the tiger.
Q) This thing sucks! It doesn't work or it freezes up or I can only upload 2 files in a row before it dies or my uncle touched me and now I can't download anything!
A) Join the club. DSWifiLib is notorious for its memory leakings. There are dev threads about it, but nothing is being done. Also, some routers loathe the method of making new sockets for each transfer. I've had my 4 DS Units work perfectly on a home router, only to fail completely at someone else's office. Routers hate DSWifiLib.
Q) Are you single?
A) Norm is; the prize goat just died
Okay, here it is: http://akaio.net/wifi/
And yes, this was the "easter egg" I was talking about.
I really like the fact I ported the zip library, honestly. Yay zipping files!
I realize there are many new strings of text. When a new AKAIO is released, the new language.txt will come out with the new strings. "
