    So far the game runs well, but whenever I play certain levels or ANY of the Bosses it lags and slows down very badly. Is there some sort of patch or anything that fixes it? I tried, "Clean" mode but that didn't make any difference.

    And yes, everything is up to date. And I have the latest version 1.09.

    I have similar issues with this game too. I guess, it's related to the poor Micro-SDHC card I own (Sandisk 8GB, Class 2).
    Maybe a card with faster read-speed is needed to run the game at fullspeed.

    No, he doesn't. He already uses EOS 1.09, which has the patch you linked included.

    I have the same card and I've beaten the game with no slowdowns at any part. Try using SDFormatter on your card.

    where does it say that? the website shows no fixes for MvD in the changelog but the patch does, and that website still links to the patch

    i think he should still try it anyway

    Well, here's a list of things that I tried.

    1. I tried formating the SD Card using the Panasonic SD Card formatter. That didn't do anything. I even put the options to "full with erase on".
    2. Tried using the patch thing. Nothing. It runs the same.
    3. Like I said before, I tried the Clean vs. Patch thing. No dice.
    4. I believe this is the card that I have. http://www.amazon.com/SanDisk-microSDHC-Me...cp_ob_e_title_0
    5. And yes, I've tried using clean roms as well. And multiple ones.

    Does any of this help?

    BTW, the roms I used are... "Mario_vs_Donkey_Kong_MiniLand_Mayhem_USA_iNTERNAL_NDS-NukeThis.7z, Mario_vs_Donkey_Kong_MiniLand_Mayhem_USA_iNTERNAL_DSi_NDS-ABSTRAKT.7z, and Mario_vs_Donkey_Kong_MiniLand_Mayhem_NDS-HADOUKEN.7z."

    Does anyone know which is the best one to use out of the three?

    umm i think your referring to the class, in which class 10 is the fastest reasonably priced microsd card u can get

    Edit: class 6 and up should work perfectly fine for DS flashcarts (plus the whole thing about random access speeds, basically just get a good brand, sandisk, kingston, a-data, transcend should all do fine)

    For this game, I think the reason is the firmware. Because I own a R4ids card and it run fine with wood.

    Perhaps it is the firmware. They've updated it several times to fix the issues, but it seems to be a combination of both - SD-Cart and firmware.
    I don't care, the slowdowns don't appear too often and sometimes even come in handy when you have to do several things at the same time. [​IMG]
