    I just played some FFTA2, and it really annoys me that the gamespeed is so slow. It takes like 1 second till an attack is done, the battle starts too slowly, ...
    All the rest is great, but it's just too slow.
    So any chance we would see a speedhack for this gem?

    This one is still a bit slower than the previous ones, imo.
    Although you want a tactics game that is long? Go look at Tactics Ogre. Great game, but jesus its slow. I played it before any other tactics games though so i didn't think much of it at the time.

    Its too slow imo but I can live with it. Its nice enough imo. Looks like the AI is a bit taxing the poor ole cpu. The menus respond more then quickly enough. Its just waiting on the AI controled units is a tad .. slow... YOu get used to it in the end I guess. lol

    I find it too slow, I can't play it for longer for an hour, because then it just occurs to me how slow this game is...
    I really hope someone puts out a speedhack, although it's not as slow as Tactics Ogre (which I played too)

    I too played Pokemon D/P, and I quit because it was too slow.
    Even with text going fast and battle moves off, it's just too slow.
    I really hope developers are going to put more time in that!

    I too quit pokemon and I deleted FFTA2 for the same reasons. But I don't have the balls to overclock it...

    I doubt we'll see a speedhack. All games run at the set speed of the ARM proc, unlike the PSP where the software tells the cpu what speed to go at. Other than physically changing the game I would think a simple patch would be impossible unless you actually have the source code or something? And if it hasn't been done for pokemon then well...

    I played Both FFTA and Tactics Ogre for the GBA and even if they are slow, the game is ok. I played Turn based strategy games in the PC like Might and Magic, and they are even slower. I think the FTTA2 doesn't need a hack, because the game is to beautiful, the animations and effects ere better than the previous FFTA. I also played the remake of the FFT in the PSP, but that was really slow. The slowest game I played was Ogre Battle 64 in the emu, because a problem with the graphics the game runs slow. I've played other Turn based strategy games in other consoles, like Fire emblem (I want to play the wii version, but don't have a wii [​IMG] ), and the nicest are slow.

    Fire Emblem is one game I can still enjoy because it's not that slow.
    When you fiddle a bit in the settings, the game actually runs quite well [​IMG]

    I wonder how much of the slowdown is due to the fact it's a microSD.
