    I like a lot of the mainstream games out on the DS ( etrian odessey, megaman etc.) The problem is they are sooooooo slllloooooooo.

    i was really impressed when people told me that etrian odessey is an 80 hour game, what nobody told me is that you spend most of the time in game doing ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. yes you can hold down A to speed up the battles but even then it takes forever to get from one floor to the next.

    megaman is worse, i quite like the fighting style but theres just endless UNSKIPPABLE unnessary dialogue. (come to think of it twewy was really full of it too)

    .

    i have an M3 real card with a 2 gig micro SD. the M3 actually has the (totally useless) option of slowing down a game. is there some kind of patch i can d/l to speed them up?

    No way.

    But if the game runs on a emulator, you can go on the emulator, set it to %300 play take the save, convert it and put it back on a flashcart.

    Works for me on PW

    Nope, you just have to be patient, like I was with Summon Night 2, couldn't skip the dialog and it went on for ages...

    lolwut. Hold down B and R, and it zooms through the text.

    I dont see why you'd want to, the text in the game was fairly funny on most occasions, i thought. :]

    Two options here.....

    1.Buy a new cart that supports "speed up"
    2.Go back to the old atari/nes days and quite whining....

    That's not Summon Night 2, that's Twin Age. Summon Night 2 doesn't come out until August.

    I don't think there is a flashcart that Speeds games up. Only slow them down.
