    My game of Pokemon Black seems to lag quite badly as I walk around town. Every 10 steps or so it'll slow down a lot.

    I'm using a Sandisk 2 8GB MicroSD HC, which has had no problems running dozens of other games.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Try defragging your MicroSD. Use Defraggler. It's free.

    I defragged it, but it still lags. Anyone got an idea?

    1. Download and install SD Formatter 3.0
    2. Make a backup on your computer of your SD card.
    3. Start SD formatter.
    4. In options chose
    Format Type: Full (OverWrite)
    Format Size Adjustment: On
    5. Press ok to close options windows and then Select the the SD card location in "Drive:"(by default if you only have one sd card plugged into your computer it will automatically chose select it)
    6. Press Format and wait for the format to complete, can take some time depending on your sd card size or computer CPU speed.
    7. Remember the backup we made on step 2? put all of it back in the sd card.
    8. test it.
    9 Proof it!

    Format didn't help either. I'll try another mSD card when I find it.

    NEVER EVER do the following:
    it reduces the life of your microSD
    format instead



    you could try another microSD, like mentioned above
    but it seems, this games speed also depends on which flashcart/fw you'll using
    on my DSTT clone with official kernel: lag
    on my DSTT clone with retro's TTMenu: even more lag
    on my acekard with the latest akaio: no lag
    (both carts use a microSD's with the same speed...0,01 ms random access difference, exact same write speed)

    dude.... the game lags even if you bought the game so i dont think its your microSD problem
    however if it is lagging when playing the DSi then ... yeah its ur microSD

    What? What did you just say?!

    @OP, its either your MSD or your flashcart. Try a different microSD and if the lag persists, use a different flashcart. By the way, can you link me to the website of your flashcart?

    or use another firmware!!! if you watch my gba temp review of M3i Zero Quad Boot you sell that in M3 Sakura and on R4i RTS Firmware, the game has some fps breaks while walking, but on wood m3 and YSMenu for M3 that doesnt happen [​IMG]

    The real game doesn't lag as much as when you have a bad sd card, like in the menu's,my real white copy has the menu fast, but my downloaded black version had the menu lagging.

    I think I know the cause.

    Im using a Dstt clone also with an 8gb.microsd

    When I had 4/5 games pokemon runed fine today I added 6 six games and pokemon began to lag when entering /exiting towns.

    I think the amount of games you stored affect the game. spiderman shatterd dimensions lagged also.

    Do you have a reason why it would reduce "life"?

    Flash memory has a limited number of write cycles. While wear leveling greatly reduces that issue, defragging uses the entire disc heavily.
