    Nevermind the post, I figured it out. Sorry

    I am having an issue with every ROM that I convert using NesterDS. They seem to run so choppy and slow, which is surprising to me, since every site I visited doesn't mention such issues. I'm using a DS Lite with an R4 and an EZ Flash in slot 2.

    Is the extreme slowdown normal or do I need to so something different?

    Yes. NesterDS uses software emulation which is slow but accurate. NESDS uses hardware emulation which is fast but inaccurate. Most go for NESDS.

    When it's a port of an NES emulator for the PC, those types of things happen. One could say the same thing about SNES games on the PSP, as many lag or slowdown even though the PSP's clock speed is 100 times that of the SNES.

    NES DS uses the DS's 2D hardware to greatly speed up rendering at the cost of potential graphical glitches (only in a very very few games). Use that instead.
