What allocation size or anything of the sort? Is there a specific formatter I should use? It's odd, but the DSTwo I have had suddenly become slow. I'd asked somewhere before and it did help to a degree but it's still bothersome. It's just generally slow. And before anything, it's the exact same micro sd card that I've used since having the DSTwo, and originally it ran butter smooth. Any ideas? I'm contemplating a different rom than what I've had just in case something happened with it

Probably need to reformat to fat32 http://www.ridgecrop.demon.co.uk/guiformat.exe
or get a new sd card (doesn't need to be too high end just a good brand and speed) as yours might be dying/dead
the rom could be it, but you could try a different one or one from a different source, but I don't think that'd be it
You might be able to try fat16, but I highly doubt that will do anything noticeable and have only read about it

  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    I thought about just buying a new ext hdd 12tb like you shown, then format multiple partitions on it, but I'm lazy.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    Buy 4 won't have to

    It was only $75 so still cheaper than a new drive. And less hassle. It would take forever to copy everything over also.
  • K3Nv2 @ K3Nv2:
    You take forever

    I like retroarch, once you set it up completely, it's cool. Artwork, summary, and screen shots for all your games is a nice touch. It's basically a organizer for all your emulators/games.

  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    install done
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    start setting up
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    the setup is taking too long
  • BigOnYa @ BigOnYa:
    So you give up already? If you just want to just play games, not setup for game covers, details, etc; then just use PC emulators alone by they self. Example "Nestopia" or "Project64", etc
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    Couldnt finish setting it up
  • Xdqwerty @ Xdqwerty:
    And if you ask i downloaded it from steam
