I've been Softmodded for little over a year now and I've been enjoying every minute of it. However.. I've recently began to see framerate issues I don't remember seeing in these games I played as a teenager. - Resident Evil Umbrella Chronicles and Darkside Chronicles - Silent Hill Shattered Memories - Monster Hunter I.e the list goes on. I've been seeing framerate issues with those games that I never noticed as a teenager. But then again I'm using an External Hard Drive as the source and I'm not sure if that's what the issue is. Now the other issue is I can't seem to get Call Of Duty to play off my HDD. In fact it doesn't even load. When I try to start the games the screen goes black and the wii just basically freezes itself. I've tried 249, 250 and even 224 using D2x v10 B 52 and previous versions, however I tried Wan's 21. Cios for 250 and when I tried to load the games they actually rebooted the wii or the loader. I'm not so concerned about COD as I am the framerates. So I'm curious if the games have always had this issue and I've never just noticed it till now or is the issue more complicated because of the HDD and softmodding. As a side note I was using Usb Loader GX the newest rev 1231? I've also heard it could just be the games themselves because they're third party and first party nintendo products don't have this issue. I haven't tested this theory but in all honestly most nintendo products wouldn't be heavy enough to kill the framerates right? Any help is appreciated! Edit: Might as well add some info huh? The USB HDD I'm using is http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00CI3BISU/ref=oh_details_o02_s00_i00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 and this drive is partitioned for WBFS and Gamecube games. I've ran through certain scenarios of if this could be the problem and I'm around 65% that it very well could be. I'll grab a systemchk for you guys soon. Edit #2: I just made a video. Made it easier so you guys know whats happening. It also includes the SysCheck at the end around 21 minutes. You can notice the framerate drop dramatically as soon as leon and krauser enter the market, while it may be somewhat hard to notice through the video it is still there. You'll notice the jump from 60 to what I assume is 30 or below. You'll also see me trying to play a COD game that just freezes my wii.
