    Right now, the only game i play on my Loadiine is Twilight Princess HD.

    So tell me, is it normal that I get fps drop during fight? or maybe it is due to the speed of my SD?
    If it's due to my SD, I'm using a Microsd in a SD adapter, could it be the cause? or do I need a veery fast sd card absolutely like this one :

    thanks for the help

    try comparing it to a YouTube video, see if it's the same

    the problem i have is the horrible loading times, some are not too bad but others are pretty bad, 30 seconds plus

    Loading screen are long indeed, but I know that is due to a cheap SD card. but 30 seconds? I wasn't that bad lucky, the worst I had was around 10-12 seconds

    Is it happening a lot ?
    Do you have an other SD card you could try it on ?

    I didn't get any fps drops (using the disc or using loadiine).

    I don't think you'll get fps drop with the disc since the games was optimised to be played with a disc.
    As for the Loadiine version, can you tell me what is the SD card you are using?
    As for me, do I have any other sd card? Sadly no, All SD card I have don't have enought space to contain a single game. The only one I have with a lot of space are microSD and I use a SD adapter.
    But the result will be the same, the adapter speed...
    That's why I would like to know if I need a new SD card and what would be the ideal read speed to get full experience of most games.

    I have the exact same problem here. I get a fps drop whenever my sword comes into contact with an enemy and the load times are a joke, literally 20 - 30 seconds for every door I go through.

    I am using a PNY 128 Go SDXC formatted in Fat32 since February 2015. It worked with TPHD, got loading times around 10 seconds too.
    (I recently had an I/O error on this card which caused the card not to be recognized by the computer but I'm recovering everything at the moment. The card still works in the WiiU.)
    Before using it on the WiiU, I used it on my o3DSxl and it was fast (no long-time loading games on the menu)
    I got this card on amazon with a discount (69€), but it's a bit costly so I would recommend a smaller one.

    Do you know what is the reading speed of your sdxc card? Also, do you have a fps drop in fight too?
    That might help to compare and maybe know if it's normal and unavoidable or if we can fix this with better sd card

    The problem is that you're playing disc (not disk) based games off an SD-Card, burn the games onto discs and you won't have that problem.

    Never head of FPS drops, but have you tried formatting your SD to 64KB? it drastically improved load times for me.

    This is my card : https://www.amazon.fr/gp/product/B00D87P020/
    It says that the reading speed is up to 50 mo/s.
    Just tested a fight and no fps drops, using the human and wolf form in a dungeon and with the amiibo challenge.

    Edit : And I didn't format it to 64kb, I should try that too!

    50 mbps huh?
    I guess this one will be just fine, I don't need 128GB and this one is WAAAAAY cheaper.
    It is also twice faster

    Yeah the 128Gb is a bit overkill if you just use it for Loadiine ^_^
    (Try to format your existing card with the 64kb clusters before buying an other one).
    Then tell us if it works, it's good to know which sd card is good for TPHD.

    Because if you're using Loadliine you can't use burned disks.
