    Hi,
    i'm wondering if there are slot 1 flashcarts with which Castlevania PoR does not freze, because i have a R4 and it does freeze with both 1g Sandisk and 1g high speed Microdia. Especially, does ez5 freeze?

    The G6 lite is the best bet for this game. I played all the way through without a single crash or freeze. I've heard rumors that some people had problems with this game on the G6, but it seems to be much less frequent than on other carts.

    It seems that this game will lock up/crash on just about any cart, but the problems are less frequent the faster the flash memory is.

    Yep, no problem with M3 Simply/R4 and 1GB Kingston Japan here. It does freeze with 2 Taiwan version of the Kingston that I tried.

    I played through it four times on G6Lite. No single crash. On R4 it crashed on 1GB Sandisk, but not with the Kingston 1GB (Japan).

    g6 lite seems to be quite good indeed. Is it possible to dump nds/gba games with that cart?

    Dammit, my kingston is made in Taiwan. Do you think I can invoke the customer service and get one from Japan? What would I say to Kingston?

    Try the Acekard, I have the old version and Castlevania works without lag/freeze.

    Called up Kingston, they're mailing me a Japanese card and I'm returning the Taiwanese card [​IMG] This is only because the guy I talked to was cool, but he said Kingston is not claiming any difference between the cards.

    I hear a lot of talk about PoR freezing, but WHERE in PoR does it freeze? Is it random? or is there a for sure part in the game I could check if it freezes or not?

    It doesn't freeze on the EZV using Hybrid mode. Using clean rom makes it freeze.

    Not one freeze on my M3Lite (v31) with Kingston 1GB (haven't checked if it's a japanese or a taiwanese card). I'm already 6 hours into the game.

    It freezes on the DS-X at random times but only when you go to the menu (press start) when you access the map (press select), or when you access a portal (which acesses the map)
    but not too often

    I recall reading somewhere that Kingston has silently fixed the problems with the Taiwan cards, and that they now perform just as well as the Japan ones, though I'm not sure how reliable this information was, and I can't remember the source.
