    Hello, I've recently purchased an iTouchds 2 for my ds lite and encountered a problem playing games from the Pokemon series (Diamond, Pearl, Platinum). Whenever I enter/exit a door or the menu, the black screen delay is a lot longer than the non emulated game.
    However, what makes it even worst is the fact that navigating through the bag is nearly impossible due to the lag.
    I did a search on pokemon lag and didn't find anything so I was wondering if this is problem is universal with the emulation and if there is a way to fix this.

    Thank you!


    P.S. Other games run very smoothly, it only lags when i play pokemon games.

    if clean dump = putting the .nds file in the card then yes

    At first I thought my cheats messed the game up, but i did a couple of complete reinstall of the firmware and the game and had the same issue.

    this might sound odd, but do you have a memory expansion cart lying around anywhere?
    I seem to recall that my friend sped up loading times in various games while he had it in his DS' slot 2 (pokemon saving in particular)

    Sadly, I don't have a memory expansion cart.
    I will try with a different microsd and report back.

    Its probably the micro sd. It may not work good with flash cards, I have this issue with new San Disk 4Gb on my acekard. I think San Disk changed something and now they don't work as well with flash carts or something.
