    Random question.
    I know they read backups at 3x, but how about if i were to load an original using gamma launcher?

    Err..I'm pretty sure that originals don't load using backup launcher. I think I remember accidentally leaving my original of Mario Kart Wii in thinking it was a different game and it gave a DRE.

    Why would you want to load originals anyway, lol.

    No reason, just if the originals are read at 6x, then maybe the coders are doing something that's restricting only backups?
    I'm assuming they are being read at 3x, as its the software's error and not the media the software is on.

    Ah. My guess is that it would read at 3x anyways since homebrew is unable to touch the drive speed settings.

    There was actually a forum thread that eventually lead to a link that explained why homebrew is supposed to never achieve 6x read speed. I just don't remember where. [​IMG]

    This was back before gamma so I just kinda assumed it was the same way with gamma, my bad.

    Hmm, i thought the game loading code is the same for 1:1 backups and originals. GeckoOS would run originals at 3x if the backup launchers did.

    I used Gamma to launch my original No More Heroes so I could use the Ocarina codes, there was absolutely no difference in load times and no glitches, so unless Gamma plays NMH perfectly at 3x then I'd say it's definitely 6x.
