    Hello.

    I have a DSTT and I use a 4 GB Duracell MircoSDHC Class 4 card.

    When I am in-game sometimes when I run around it will have some frames drop and therefore lag. For example running from Pokemon Center to gym and in the middle it will lag and continue running.

    How can I fix the lag?

    Thanks

    Back up your card and reformat with this

    Also interesting little detail, some places even in the official card have a minor lag. I bought the game on the first day it came out and noticed it happening in some places.

    That might just be one of the areas that lags even in the retail game.

    Strange, both my game and my boyfriend's game has a minor lag in some places.
    As well some of my friends have the same problem [​IMG]
    I wonder if it's just a problem with the first release.

    It shouldn't lag too much. It likely has nothing to do with your problem, but what firmware are you using? Also, were you sure to do a full format instead of a quick format with the software A Gay Little Catboy recommended? As a matter of troubleshooting, you might also want to try doing a full format of your SD card with your operating system's formatting software.

    It is also possible that your SD card just doesn't have a very good read speed. Someone else might know better than I about the specifics of your card.

    Which type should I pick, FULL (Flash Erase ON) or Flash Erase Off. Also do I put FORMAT SIZE ADJUSTMENT ON or OFF?
    I checkout the specs and it says read and write speeds are as high as 10MB per second.
    This is my SD card: http://www.futureshop.ca/en-CA/product/dur...b93f83a49e3en02
    I am using the DSTT DSTTi YSMenu V6.61 (English) from R4wood.com

    So you're using RetroGameFan's firmware? If not, you should use that.

    They didn't even try to hide that fact.

    Please don't support those guys and use Retro's update. Yes they are the same files, but at least you will be supporting the person who is really doing all the work.

    I formated and changed the firmware but it still lags.
