I'm experiencing some little but noticeable enough slow-downs or lags during some movies in this game when I was playing via the usb loaders. For example: the movie when the star lady drives the whole station into the center of the universe(last stage). The graphic looks a little choppy, and you will notice the same thing happening to the bgm too. I've tried HDD, flash drives with no fragments, different versions of usb loaders and it all appears the same problem. I can't think of this has anything to do with the data transfer rate of the hard wares since: wii dvd drive 6x MAX = 8.31MB/s USB 2.0 ports = 60MB/s and my hdd usually transfer files at 10+MB/s So, could it be the problem of the game itself or the usb loaders? I wonder if this happens in the original copies. I have a softmodded wii on 4.0U + SMG NTSC-U.
