I had hoped that i'd never have to start a topic asking for help with the back-up loader. When I looked at the wiki on maschell wiki, it said that HM:TOT works fine, but when I use it, it has graphical gliches (garbage bars on hero) and if i open the menu or talk to anyone it freezes. I was wondering if the person who posted the entry didn't test it enough, or that I might have a semi-bad dump. It would be nice to be able to play the game so that I won't be so anxious waiting for the actual game to come in the mail (ordered it thursday, still hasn't been shipped). Edit: I was looking through the forums and alot of people were saying to burn backups at 2.4x speed, does this improve compatibility at opposed to burning at 3x as was the original burn speed for the leaked loader? Edit: Reburned the disc using 2.4x speed, and it still didn't help, it actually seemed to make things slightly worse (had to load the game 4 times before i could even get to the menu to load the saved game).
