    I downloaded neogeo ds and putted it on my card. Later I succesfully converted all metal slug games (1,2,X,3,4,5),but putting them in my G6, I can't play them without slowdowns except for metal slug 1 that works fine.
    In fact playing them I experience many slowdowns that make 'em unplayable.
    Can you say why I can't run properly all the roms?

    Many Thanks

    There will be some slowdown in the games. You can try toggling the CPU speed back and forth.....believe it or not, the slow CPU speed tends to work best for most games.

    If you have a slot2 card with built-in GBA memory, you should also get some speed ups since NeoDS will use it to cache stuff for faster access.

    I don't mean normal slowdowns, but..... HUGE slowdowns. Every time a enemy shows up the game blocks for about 4 seconds, then it goes forward of a frame and it get more 4 seconds and again and again.

    I don't think that's normal, In fact I already sayed that the first metal slug works perfectly and it's from the same site from where i downloaded other games.

    Maybe thats why you are using a SLOT-2 device.

    You might want to try using different bios. Google it. I was actually using some old bios I downloaded years ago with the NeoDS. Keeps on crashing on converted games. Once I got some new ones, no problems. Most games are still gonna play between 40 to 60fps.
