    Hello peoples,
    I used to play Pokemon HeartGold on the normal R4 with YSmenu and it worked perfectly with it patched, but after my R4 broke, I cannot play it properly.

    So right now... I bought a R4i Gold with the latest firmware 1.31b and I wanted to try Pokemon HeartGold on it, after I boot up the game and loaded my save file, the game works, but it is really delayed and slow... :|
    EDIT: I actually use R4i Gold with the site R4iGold.cn. With patch 1.8b

    For example when I load it, it takes a while to load up to the place, when I go in my item screen, it has a 1-2 second delay while selecting items (even in battles) and each time when I walk into a new area, the black screen comes up and it takes forever to load.

    I used Rudolph's Universal Child's Play patch for HG(U).

    I was told that I needed a clean/dump rom of HeartGold to patch it, but the one I used is Xenophobia...(Which I'm quite not sure if it is clean or not.)

    So can anyone please help me here?

    did you try other games if they play slow too? if so, its ur microSD card/flashcart's firmware.
    if its the pokemon game only, its your rom.

    Xenophobia is the handle of the person who dumped the rom ... it's a clean rom i had the Xenophobia dump myself but swapped to the BAHAMUT dump since its the euro ver.

    the lag is because of the patch use a clean dump on a ak2i + akaio ... go buy one

    Ah thanks for the replies guys, I figured out the problem, my microSD card was 4gigs, which made my R4 run quite slow.

    thread from 2010, will be locked after i comment.
    just want to finish the thread, i own the original games and they are have delay\lag by default. it is something that bothers me when i start to play but eventually get used to it...

    as for knowing if the rom is a clean dump, you can use a checksum tool (i recommend installing hashtab, a really cool free tool that implements checksum testing when you see the proprieties of files in windows)
    and compare the hash (either md5 or sha-1, doesn't matter which) with this database: http://datomatic.no-intro.org
    (search for the game name, in heartgold case, search for heartgold, select the rom you have, usually it's the US version, compare the numbers)
