Hi, my dad recently bought me a Polaroid microSDHC 8GB class 4 for $20. And I researched there was a class 6, same micro, same GB, selling online for about the same price. I was wondering if class matter that much when it come to using it for flashcart. (I'm considering to buy Acekard 2.1). What is class exactly for?

Class is the speed at which the mircoSD card reads / writes. Generally, the class doesn't matter when dealing with most files on a flashcart, so there's not real need to upgrade. You may see a difference in games like Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin.

I am using a Class 2 Sandisk in my DSTT and it works fine.
The Class system is a minimum speed that it should perform at, if you are lucky it will work closer to the next class speed.

As its a minimum speed requirement most cards actually perform faster then their class. A class 2 card should be fine for any flashcart at the moment.

Just so you know class 2 means a minimum speed of 2mb/s, class 4 4mb/s and class 6 6 mb/s. I have an eight gig class 4 sdhc card and the transfer speed is generally around 8-10 mb/s.

if the is nothing written on the box, its best to assume its class 2

class 6 is the best yes, personally I wouldn't bother with anything less, but if you already have a class 4 it should still work well with most games

    @Psionic Roshambo, The Wii U gamepads are tied to the console's region, so its impossible to find a cheap gamepad that supports your model.

    Unless you modify your system, of course, and remove the region check.

    @Xdqwerty can we discuss chrono trigger

    @Xdqwerty I like how the game had the middle ages 1000AD, the dark ages 600AD.It was great seeing the post robot apocalypse 2300 like Terminator and enter the matrix. some of mad max and fallout. 2300ad though it could had used more elements instead of just a generic ai uprising. It was a great idea for their judgement day to be 1999 Y2K.

    -great additions if they would have made an expansion or dlc in my opinion would be finding out humans trapped in a matrix -

    a follower having a cyborg character living tissue over metal endoskelleton like terminator, and the synths from fallout
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    4After Zeal fell it would have been good to see more ancient eras. Perhaps Sumeria based in one area, then Egypt based in another area, Greek based in another area, then roman based in another area before the middle ages.---------

    ----between 1000ad and 1999 is a big gap they should have had the age of revolution like the american and French Revolution

    then the cowboyy era in one area of map and the Industrial revolution/age of enlightmentthen a ww1 and ww2 and a cold war era
  • S @ salazarcosplay:
    they could have added 75,000 bc like assassins creed. zeal was already establish in 12, 000 bc , soething before the kindom rose
