     If you use another folder, the self-update still sends the new files to "SD:\apps\AccioHacks\"!

Known Bugs

If the total number of characters returned in an online list of available games (per system per letter) is > 8000, none will be returned.
This is very unlikely to happen but it's actually a PHP + Apache bug.
In the event of this very unlikely situation, this affects all versions of Accio Hacks.

If a listing of available games (per system per letter) is > 150, Accio Hacks will probably code dump.
This applies both to SD lists of games and to Online lists and affects all versions of Accio Hacks.
The limit for Online lists was increased to 250 in Accio Hacks v1.1
Currently, the largest possible list is 137 games: "[R] Wii - S - (*) Any/All Regions"

There is a 900 code limit per game, the rest are abandoned when the txt file and gct are saved. This does NOT cause crashing.
Games Affected: Monster Hunter 3 (US with 33,215 codes and PAL with 2,919).
Fire Emblem Radiant Dawn (US) is close with 892 codes.
The average number of codes per game is only 59. There are no plans to significantly increase this limit. (enough requests could change that, however)

Cannot Download VC Arcade games, reports (404).
Only Effects v0.9 (not v0.9.1).
