    To those people who are anxiously waiting for their R4DS to arrive,
    rejoice!!

    I've tested about 3 ROMs until now.

    On R4DS there is no speed setting whatsoever.
    Save game is detected automatically, although I there is
    some kind of database in the OS where is has savedata type information.

    Castlevania: PoR = animation intro runs perfectly on R4DS with Kingston 1GB MicroSD.
    Metroid Prime: Hunters = Runs fine, no slowdown in intro.
    Elite Beat Agent = Runs fine.

    Can't test the download play as I've only got 1 DS...

    So, far I happy that I've made a VERY GOOD choice, cause I was worried that I would have
    slowdown problems like Supercard.

    Fine!!!! Can you try roms, that are more problematic on flashcard slot 2, like Spyro, Tony Hawk's, Ultimate Spuiderman and Castlevania DoS? Thanks

    Ok, I've tested Tony Hawk's DJ.. Works fine, although I've only played for 15 min... I don't have
    other ROMs you've mentioned. I've got only about 25 odd roms... T.T

    you only mention PoR's intro, what about its gameplay, does it freeze when you hit pause button or talk to wind?

    Hey guys...

    Sorry I was playing the WHOLE day.. kkk
    To answer couple of questions, Castlevania PoR it doesn't freeze at all talking to Wind or pressing pause button.

    Gui is simple, I use newly updated version 1.04. It just shows all the NDS file in a simple list...
    I am at friend's house so, can't take photo... (I also don't know how to put photos on this forum, I am a newbie)

    Memory I've got is Kingston 1GB. Apparently, R4DS is not suppose to slowdown at all whatever memory you use.
    But I can't promise since I only got Kingston.

    I ordered it from Divineo China, they shipped it the very next day... some places are selling it cheaper like
    $40 but, I prefered Divineo since it was a big company and had other items that I wanted to order...

    I've tried tested following ROMS..
    All works fine..

    1. Meteos
    2. Monster Bomber
    3. Trauma Center: Under the Knife
    4. Cooking Mama
    5. Final Fantasy III (Played only for 5 min only)
    6. New Super Mario Bros.
    7. Tony Hawk's DJ
    8. Brain Training
    9. Brain Age
    10. Elite Beat Agents
    11. True Swing Golf
    12. Big Brain Academy
    13. Metroid Prime Hunters (Played for 5 minutes)
    14. Tetris DS
    15. Full Metal Achemist: Dual Sympathy
    16. Yoshi's Island DS
    17. Castlevania: PoR

    Quite surprise to see that I haven't encountered any problems unlike
    Supercard users... It's also good to know that R4DS team is constantly
    updating their OS, although I don't know how to customise this menu...

    Will post more info, if anybody got more questions...

    It's Spring-loaded, also R4DS's plastic quality is same quality as
    original roms, No protruding plastic pieces or sticking out.

    I can easily pop out the just the MicroSD from the R4DS while it's inside the DS
    without taking whole cartridge out in order to connect it to PC.

    gorzy, sorry I don't have Guitar rom to test it.. [​IMG]
