    where is the game freezing. in the menus. people have already reported pokemon freezing on thier r4. I guess you can say the r4 isn't perfect for running pokemon.

    it can freeze at any point when you least expect it i did read somewhere that one game runs faster than usual and D/P might be like this but if someoe does have a good working US D/P rom can they lease tell me what they searched for

    Pearl works perfectly on my R4, almost 12 hours of gameplay now. And is it just me or is saving Pearl on the R4 much faster than saving on a proper game?

    I've never had freezing with Pokemon on my R4 in the 60+ hours I've played. Only once because I Pokesav'd some messed up stuff into my Pal Park and it froze as soon as I got into a battle.

    I use a Japanese Kingston 1GB microSD.

    EDIT: Yes, sinkhead. It saves much faster than the retail carts. My friends always flipped out about it.

    Never had a problem with mine freezing..I'm about 30 hours into it and it works flawlessly. Make sure your card isn't over packed.

    54 hours and 38 minutes.

    The only freezing I have is whenever I check the size of Dialga in the Pokedex.
    It's flawless(so far) otherwise.

    I've had both Pokemond Diamond and Digimon World freeze on my DS Lite with a R4 and Kingston Micro SD card. It seems to only happen after I've been playing it several hours in a row. It is rare but it does happen so I try to make sure I save frequently.

    I had it freeze once on me.

    I had just attacked and when it when it went back to the screen where you choose, fight run, switch, of items it froze, and wouldn't load the words on the bottons.

    It was about 5 hours in, but I had just saved, which was lightning fast btw. [​IMG]

    ya, the R4 saves ALOT faster than the retail cart (like 3 seconds max compared to my friends, which we have actually counted over 30 seconds)

    pokemon takes longer to save. if you do more stuff in the game for example you play the game for 2 hours and then save someone whos played for 4 hours and saves will have to wait longer for the saving to finish.

    giving site names and telling you what to search for would also be against the rules i believe. its not hard to find rom sites there is loads of them.

    the name of the rom wouldn't help you very much. If you need like, the release ID and stuff, check G-online.

    It's probably not the rom. I don't how the roms from various sites would differ. The chance would be very low.
