    I kinda have this feeling that my games aren't running the way they should. It feels like games have longer loading times than normal. I can't really discribe it. What could possibly fix it. and what could be the issue?

    im thinking of:

    Formatting EmuNAND
    Formatting my Red Gateway card's Micro SD

    A slow microSD card can do this. Try with a faster microSD card? I know there was a known good microSD card list for DS back in the day

    Wouldn't formatting emuNAND just re-link them? Or are you talking about formatting from inside the system menu?

    I've been told that if you format emunand (in gateway menu) you unlink em. If thats not the case, ive been wrongly informed

    Formatting emunand in system settings (system format) will unlink them if they are linked. Formatting emunand in GW Menu will link them, because it will create an exact copy of your sysnand onto your emunand.

    Formatting the SysNand with no SD card in the system unlinks them.
    Formatting the EmuNand partition re-links them when the EmuNand is created again.
