    Apologies in advance if this has already been answered.


    How long does it take a Sky3DS to load from ROM to ROM? I've seen it in video, but it might seem different in person. I dunno.

    It's like 3-8 seconds, TOPS. Press the button, look away for a few seconds and it's changed.

    That's good. Not really a problem 4 me.


    Unrelated, but does game data show up on the activity log? Like, if I'm playing a game on Sky3DS, does it add that game to the log?

    It all depends on your SD and the size of the game you are using.

    I use a class 10 Sandisk Ultra and it takes between 4 to 5 seconds to switch between pokemon alpha and X or Smash Bros, but i you will find people in here that have load times till 10 seconds.

    I suggest multiple 16gb cards instead of a single big card. It is easier to sort. If you want to get to a specific game it is faster than cycle many games.

    Eh. The whole reason I want one is to hold all my games on the one card. Having multiple SDs seems kinda redundant, because I would have to constantly switch out the SDs.

    imagine that you have to press the blue button 20 times to go to your game , after that you want to play the game before the game you just played it in the list
    you have to finish the list and get back to press

    get 2 or 3 16 GB Micro SD card

    I honestly don't care. I can do something else whilst I'm waiting for it. I just wanted to know exactly how long it'd take. I have the patience, I was just curious.

    Well, either way the Sky3ds has a game limit of 31 games so the cycle wouldn't be that huge...

    Is that a total limit or per SD?

    Not that I'd ever have that much on there. I dunno.

    how good is the button? how hard do i have to press it to change the game? it is so easy that could i do it by accident? or is it difficult that i might end up ejecting the sky3ds cart?

    It's per SD.
