    Hi guys,

    Just checking if this is normal.. in Hearthome City, riding around with the bike near the assortment of large buildings, the game chugs for me. It's happened in a few other places where there's lots on screen as well and I'm not sure if it should be doing that..

    I don't remember it doing that with Pearl (and a different SD card). Would a slow card manifest itself in such a way?

    No that's not normal. I've been playing Platinum for almost 24 hours and it hasn't lagged once. Sometimes when weird things like that happen, your card just needs a fresh format. Backup all your data, then format with this tool: http://gbatemp.net/index.php?download=1530. It'll format it better than a normal Windows format will, so that might help you even more. After that, Platinum should work fine.

    Turning off your batterysaver option may help too.

    Platinum appears to be a little bit more demanding in graphics, but I don't know how much difference is normal. If any that's noticeable.

    Happens to me too. Does it freeze on you when you try to use the GTS?

    The GTS works fine for me: personally I think it's a fast card speed that prevents the initial freeze for the GTS (black screen after going through the door), but my problem is the actual connection. I keep timing out and getting communication errors.

    If you experience any freezes trying to access the GTS, there's an easy fix.

    Before you enter the door, enable your slow-mo and set it to 50%.
    Before you connect online, set it back to 100%

    And you'll have no problems.
