    I have just given my DSTWO with a DSi XL a hard work out and I have only two recommendations to make
    1 use a SD or SDHC CLASS 6 memory card, it does make a big difference in performance with the GBA emulator
    2 Supercard Teem well done and keep going
    It is now a Fantastic Card and the GBA emulator has a good compatibility, I can't wait for the SNES emulator for it [​IMG]

    How did it make a difference, did it load it faster or something? The rom is mounted on the RAM as far I know, so it shouldn't have had any effect...

    It loads games faster and saves games faster

    Well, yeah that's what you expect from a data storage with better read/write rates.

    I just got my DStwo and I'm quite happy with it, I'm thinking I might make the switch from my Acekard 2i.
    There's one, minor thing that bugs me though, it's that there's a minor loading time on something like pokémon soul silver.
    A noticable split-second pause when you enter a battle, move to a new part of the map, etc.
    It's especially noticeable when you open the bag menu during a battle, it's longer than on an Acekard or a retail cart. I'm hoping Supercard can improve general DS performance with an update, AKAIO already managed this a while ago with improvements to the DMA.

    Golden Sun - The Lost Age is one of the laggiest games on the Emulator.

    With Class 6 I feel it cuts this down quite a bit, not perfect but would work fine with no audio

    Class affects write speed, not read speed.
    So for loading games, it does not matter whether it's class 1 or class 100.
    Saving, on the other hand...

    Actually you are wrong, higher the class the higher the read and write speed
    Have a look

    What he means is, Class speed actually specifies the card's write speed.
    Write speed and Read speed are usually independent of each other, but as one improves, usually so does the other.

    Your own link: For example, the Class 6 PNY Optima SDHC 4 GB offers a maximum of 10.33 MB/s while the overachiever at the moment is the ATP ProMax 4 GB, also a Class 6, with no less than 15.57 MB/s when writing large files.
