    I don't know. It may be the game itself, it may be something I did wrong, it may be that the rom is trimmed, it may be just me, but my slow motion doesn't work!.
    I select SR (which does work as long as I don't select the same game again), and then I choose L+Select for my slow motion lv3.
    Anyways when I do the L+Sel combo, the game freezes until I let go of the buttons, but there is no noticeable slowing of motion!
    I tried this on many roms, including SM64, M&LBIS, M&LPIT. All tried when trimmed and then untrimmed by downloading the rom again.
    But whenever I do it the game freezes until I let go of the buttons, but there is no noticeable slowing of motion!
    Help please?

    I tried it once and found it a bit useless, you could try a different slow mo level?

    latest firmware does the same thing

    tried with about 10 different games, different slow motion levels
    it it does is freeze the game then as soon as you let go unfreezes is, doesnt actually put it in slow motion

    Yep I've tried it with many games, both trimmed and untrimmed. I tried them with lv1 and lv5 to see if there is any difference, but in the end, all I get is a game that freezes when you press it, and unfreezes when you release it

    Between insane and insecure
    I tried it with M3 Sakura and iTouch DS on the same card again different levels , but freezes as well. So I just installed iTouch as the primary firmware on the M3 Real, thinking it was just a software issue, and it still did the same thing.
    I think they were bsing when they put that feature in, kinda like the boot icon option in the settings, it does nothing.

    I made a test with Touchpod last version and it works well.. enable soft reset function then slow motion (I choose L+select) next step choose slowmotion level between level 4 and special 7 (in lower levels there's no slowdown) start your game, press L+select (or R+select thats your choice). Tested with Mario Kart DS.
