    I know RTS stands for "real time save", but what is it exactly? is it something really important?
    I mean the flascards that don't support RTS, you have to exit the game and then save it? Sorry, but I don't understand it. Can you plz help me?

    RTS is like saving anywhere anytime. Basically you could save in the middle of a pokemon battle. It's only important if you really want it. The acekards don't have RTS. No flashcarts don't make you exit the game to save. All you have to do is save normally like you would in game.

    It's important if you're not very good at playing games or don't like to use save points that are included in the game. It works in the same way as save states do in emulators. It allows you to save the game at the point you're at and then when you reload it that's where you start.

    And no, Acekard don't support it.

    Thanks to both of you TrolleyDave and Boxshot, I think I understand it now. Base on you explanations I think It's not a really important feature.

    I find the real-time guide to be a much more useful feature than RTS, even if the SCDSi's in-game guide kinda sucks.

    Real time save is almost cheating.

    It is cheating unless the game itself offers you the option. [​IMG]
