    There. Now you can remove the link to the rom site.

    Real time saves let you save at any point while the game is running, even if the game doesn't support saving. Also known as saved states, save states, game states, instant save, etc.

    Same here. The first games I tried were perfect, but it seems a lot won't even run when patched.

    Sweet. This is what I've been waiting for before I bought one.
    I actually didn't think it was going to happen.

    So the save time and load time are pretty quick? Quicker than the M3/G6?

    This team seems like they're kicking ass.

    Yes. I thought something was wrong at first because it was so fast. Sadly, my M3 has lost the ability to save games, but I think this card is a worthy successor. Especially for the price it's going for.

    does the RTS patch slow down any of the games? I plan on picking up a couple pretty soon.

    Not that I've noticed, however in my limited testing there do seem to be a lot that won't run with cheats or RTS enabled.

    Also I should mention that loading roms is quirky and painful. This is a card for a user who focuses on only a few games at a time.
