    Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

    When I save the game slows down a bit, but sometimes the sound messes up and loops the same sound over and over and I can't hear anything else after that, not even the voice acting or sound effects. I have to restart the DS.

    Is this normal, I realise it's a huge game and takes a bit longer to boot up than other games.

    Using YSMenu with the Mario and Luigi RPG 3 fix.

    Yeah, I have that too. I'm also using R4 + YSMenu too...I think it's due to the cheat use.

    Nah, It isn't a cheat, I hve that proble and have none enabled.
    Maybe, but I formatted my SD a few monthsago, after that, I didn't play on my DS since SoD. But I guess it oculd be worth a try.

    I don't think formatting your MicroSD card will work. It's just the Rom itself or something.

    Also, I've just found a new problem, well not really, but it's the after-effects of the "Sound-Freeze." Here's the problem: When you get the Sound-Freeze and venture a bit into the game or after a few minutes of game play and get into a battle, there will be a TOTAL freeze - like, everything just freezes, but you can still hear the sound-freeze.

    Raymond is probably right though. It's not the first time a game slows down when saving, but usually they run perfectly after it has saved.

    I am also using R4 with YSMenu and so far i haven't found any problems that you have. I am barely 2 hrs into the game though so i don't know. So far so good for me!

    one thing i have noticed is that if you save in short intervals you tend to get the sound freeze, but if you save with a gap of around 10 to 15 mins interval there's lesser chance of getting the freeze..
