    I don't know if it's because I have not updated my firmware, but sometimes when I am walking through cities in Dragon Quest 4, the game lags quite a bit. Gonna try the 1.5 beta firmware and see if that improves it, also Kirby seems to stop working menu selection wise when you complete a level.

    I haven't noticed any lag at all in DQ4 but the Kirby problem is a game glitch that can be solved with a patch or code.

    Where do you get this lag? I haven't seen any lag so far with my 8GB Sandisk card and 1.5b3 though I am only up to the part of Chapter 2 where you have to

    I am using a 4GB Kingston card, it seems to happen more in the 5th chapter where all the characters join up, although I am not that far into it.

    Played all of the game and it lags most in towns like Paranchia or something in Chapter 5 and also a couple of other places. I wouldn't call it serious lag though as it's still playable.

    This happens on the R4 as well so it might be that the game is lagging and not the flashcart.

    Maybe it is your TF cards?
    I am using a 4GB Class 6 Transcend in my EDGE, and I have not noticed any lag.
