    Hey guys, i'm going to get a SCDSonei, but has the slow menu loading times been fixed with a firmware? I've been wondering if it does still. Sorry if this has already been answered, but yea [​IMG]

    I have m3i zero & SC DSonei, both with latest firmwares. Yes, DSonei is a bit slower than m3izero in booting up the games, but it's not a big deal IMO. You wait maximum 5-6 seconds more, but when the game is running, there is no difference at all. Honestly, you won't even care.

    Well, not for Supercard DSi, but for Supercard DS/OS One, when I load a Game on it, it takes at least like 30-40 Seconds just to freakin load a game. [​IMG]

    Dammit, when will you guys learn: it's DSOne, not OSOne! [​IMG] And your loading times are absurd. Sure you're not talking about some other card?

    for a short time when the SCteam removed all nds branding from the "DSone" it was called the "OSone"

    [​IMG] Hey, you should've seen the D and O on the Freakin Supercard! It was hard to tell whether it was a DS/OS One! My eyes deceive me!

    Wrong. You can even look this up on the official SC boards. It ISN'T an O, but a somewhat deformed D. I agree it looks a lot like an O, but it isn't.

    If you look hard enough you will see it still says DSOne on both pictures.

    Your guys' eyes deceive you, it is an "O." It's a copyright thing, from what I've read. The again, the internet is wrong sometimes.

    Hey I've just got a supercard dsione and have a 8gb card in which is full and it takes about 20 secs to load a game. I don't mind though because it's for my 7 year old.

    Wasnt the "O" for legal terms? It was for some country (forgot which) and thus changing it to an O somehow bypassed the legal terms of copyright.

    I had heard a while back that the O design was a sign of clone supercards. I guess not, since this is their "new" official stance on it-

    http://forum.supercard.sc/thread-3179-1-1.html

    Of course, some people claim it was a legal thing. Supercard denies this and says that it is supposed to be a D.

    Strange, a game takes me max 5-6 seconds to load. Maybe your MicroSD is a bit slow? [​IMG]

    Loading depends on the game size. I have noticed my supercard being a bi slow lately but I play a lot of large music games, Band Hero (dissappointing game) and Lego Rock Band both take a while to load due to their size of over 200mb while other 30-100mb games still take about 10 seconds to load.

    My experience is sorta different. I've got a Class 4 Kingston (memory doesn't matter, but: it's 4GB SDHC).

    The only time games take 15 seconds to load is when the ROMs are being read for the first time, other than that, it only takes a few seconds.

    Games take longer to load when you have a lot of options enabled.

    Oh, then, I'll try disabling some of the options and see if it'll load faster.
