    Being the perfectionist that I am, I cant stand lag when it is not supposed to be there. I have looked for hours on how to fix GTA, but none of them are really clear on how to get it to run perfectly.

    I have an acekard2i. Can anyone tell me what t do?

    Literally, I simply downloaded gta-xpa, put akaio on my acekard2i, and tried to play it. I keep reading how this game does not lag, and yet it still lags. What Should I do: arm7 and/or arm 9 patch, or the ar fix? I want it to run perfectly, and I can't seem to pinpoint how to do so.

    I'm feeling it too, running a clean ROM that was unpacked, arm7 patched, and then repacked, trimming it down to 119MB.
    Running a clean ROM with the AR fix may be the way.

    I have no lag in AKAIO, Your SD card must be horrible slow (which makes it extremely useless/shit).

    Where intellect matters
    I have a 4 GB Kingston Micro SDHC as well and I'm using the AR fix. I get no lag at all.

    It could be:
    Your flashcart (I have M3 Real with Sakura)
    or That your card is almost full (I don't know if this is a fact or not but Harddrives, Flashdrives, and Cards run/get read slower the more they have on them, and for my hardrives, cards, and I that's true.)

    I have an AceKard 2i with AKAIO 1.4 on, i experience no lag in anygame. You could try formatting your SD card (after backing it up) most people seem to recomend using Panasonic SDFormatter, which is what i used. Then putting everything back on the sd card and playing the game.

    What do you mean by lag? Sometimes on my m3 ds real, i have pop in, and only when driving cars really fast. It doesn't bother me that much... I'm using a clean rom with AR code.

    Well, the framerate isnt as smooth as I would like. However, I dont know if its my card, or the game itself. Does anyone have the actual cart?

    I don't notice lag, but sometimes if you go too fast in a car like a Comet, during a quest with other key cars you might notice that some streets aren't rendered by the time you get there, but they catch up just in time, so it works out.

    I'm using SCDS1 SDHC with a A-Data Class 6 SDHC 8GB, so it's NOT lag from my flashcart or microSD card lol
