    i managed to reduce chrono trigger to 40+ MB using dslazy, I just deleted all movies except the smallest one and replaced the opening movie with that one, and deleted a folder called extra, @Robz8 could you see if you can improve it some more with dataexclude?

    im more or less trying to ask what helps in finding in the game that needs to be excluded from at load/and whitelisted at load to speed up load times (cause atm mainly Menus, Cs and heavy scene shifting lags .)

    I'm back with an update, Home button (or sleep mode) freeze galore on this list (at least 35 games or more), this is kinda of a issue in itself but what made some of the games like that even though can be fixed in the future update?

    EDIT: Some of them i left it blank because i don't have a donor cart

    OH MY GOD!

    With the latest update the Umihara Kawase DS collection boots now and it plays perfectly!!! It's a dream come true!

    EDIT: Wow, the latest update is impressive! Bleach Dark Souls runs great with occasional stuttering. Culdcept also boots now with the english patch. It works almost perfectly with some rare audio issues. This is incredible!

    Donkey Kong Jungle Climber now boots! and there's almost no lag! I'll see if it lags when loading a level or during gameplay.

    The German version of Pokémon Platinum and the Heart Gold Rom Hack Heart Red both crash into a red screen of death when I try to boot them. Anyone got one of them working??

    Can one save cart (Kirby SSU) save for multiple games? Or if I use it to save an SDK5 game and then forget to take it out before saving in another game with the same save chip does it corrupt the previous game's save?

    No. Kirby SSU is used for games that uses EEPROM.
    Yes.

    for saving you need a maching Savetype Donor Cart, if you mean the rom isnt loading at all for you, i had no problems loading the US Rom. make sure it isnt trimmed patched or "Trainer'd" (this was rare by DS Days) (i was able to move past the verry first part of the game)

    Couple dumb questions...

    1. Any idea when we'll be able to save to the SD card again? (Without matching save type card inserted...)

    2. Any idea if we'll ever be able to run Disgaea DS using this? That would be a dream

    We can still save to SD card. It's just SDK5 games that need a cart with matching save type.
    No ETA on when.
    It'll be supported soon™.
    Again, no ETA.
