    I have 2 sd cards to run on my akaio RC2

    Kingston class 4, 8 gig and Panasonic calss 4, 4 gig.

    Both suffer from the weirdest lag issue of all time.

    At night when i play the fps is amazing, at day when I play it lags... All games are affected, Disgaea, Kh, Metal slug, Pokemon you name it.

    Panasonic sd formatter was used...

    Any ideas??? [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    O.o That is weird... Perhaps when you're playing at night the DS is in a different position causing the MicroSD to have more contact with the Acekard?

    Could it be that when you play at night, you're ds doens't get as hot as it would during the day?
    When my dsi gets hotter, because of the sun or my hands, it also starts to slow down. Even when i'm watching a movie at night and my ds gets warmer, it starts to lag.

    i've got the same card as you btw, kingston 8gb class 4.

    The solution is simple.....

    Your microSD cards are vampires and need to sleep during the day.

    Put some sunscreen on your DS and see what happens

    Put your DS in the freezer for a few hours and try again~!

    At night you're tired and your sense of FPS is less than during the day when you are well rested.

    If this is real, then I believe it has something to do with the weather too. Not necessarily the temperature, but rather the humidity (especially in those Asian countries at this time of year).

    When it is in fact VERY noticeable like lag spike in metal slug 7 or running is much slower in pokemon I don't think you're right billybob.

    @flamingo ...I think I'll give it a shot, Not sure if it will help though, but the temp thing is possible...I use a plastic cover to prevent dsi scratches but it can absorb a lot of heat...

    Also, don't expect the lag in Metal Slug 7 to be fixed, because that happens to all of us using Acekards.

    You hallucinate in the day because its hot, and your vision blurs the game.

    Nah okay seriously


    Maybe cause you play your ds in the night lying down, changing the position of the mSD...

    Uh.... You play a lot in the night, then it lags due to overplaying when you play in the day?
