    hi everyone!
    happy to join in here
    i own a DSL + M3 Real for a couple of years now
    very happy with it, all DS ROMs run great
    and it's all i want
    but now Castlevania : Portrait of Ruin gives me problems
    the known freezing issue
    and my question is :
    is there any cart besides the DSTWO that the game runs good on?
    thanks

    i don't want to buy another microsd just for it to fail...also i read it has to be max 1gb and those are not available
    anymore here
    seems strange you're saying the carts in the list run it ok
    because i read many people with r4 experience the same thing
    i've been told DSTWO and Cyclon run it good
    but they are too expensive...

    Whoops, M3 real, thought it was M3i, my bad. Also SD's limit is 2GB (technically 4Gb, but 99% of 4GB cards are SDHC instead).

    Also R4s run it fine if they have updated software like Wood.

    Look at the list for carts to get.

    I suggest going with the R4i Gold (url: http://www.r4ids.cn/) from nds-card.com
    It can play all of the Castlevania games with no problems no matter what the MicroSD speed is.

    Actually I tested Castlevania PoR on a Class4 and 6 (I borrowed from my friend, so I don't own them) They still lagged on the intro and and froze randomly. The MicroSD cards were formatted properly and I had all the latest software. I know it is a software issue since EOS updated to fix it and since the update I haven't had single problem on my DSOnei

    I have the original R4 with the latest Wood R4 and didn't had any freezing with neither of the 3 games! :)

    Well that was more of an example, personally I wouldn't suggest the DSOnei because I haven't had the best experience with it.
    Plus the R4i Gold gets far more updates both in the firmware and Kernel department.

    The DSOnei is only OK, the DSTwo and R4i gold are better.

    so the basic and normal R4 which costs 5$ is still being updated and
    supports the castlevania titles? :)

    I shall redirect you to my previous post.
    With Wood R4 and a decent MicroSD card, they work perfectly. (tested and played them all fully through myself)

    Well, yes the basic original R4 does, but it only supports 2GB cards max. The R4i Gold uses the same software base and compatibility, with SDHC support and such too.
