    Just acquired an original xbox that came with a gameshark. I'd like to be able to use it for a few games, mainly for unlimited ammo. Problem is I've heard gameshark saves can sometimes lead to issues. Can anyone here speak about their experiences with gameshark and whether or not its lead to gameplay freezing, save losses (or issues of that nature). Thanks.

    if its anything like my original gameshark for the original gameboy then it should be fine.

    my gameshark is falling apart(it held together my tape) and its working as good as the day i bought it

    If you're worried about your saves, don't cheat.
    Simple as that.

    To answer your question tho, make backups of the save if possible.

    For the record if you have a working gameshark setup then you have all the tools necessary to softmod your xbox. Once there you can use the trainers, most of which do far better than the hacked saves that shipped with gamesharks.

    That was also the route I went so I never spent any real time with a gameshark.
