so i waited a few days befor posting this in case i was wrong, but im know for sure now that i am not.
this all started a few months ago when i bought nfl street 2 and i was using the 1218 release. the game would play fine once or twice from backup and then never work again after the LOADING PROFILE screen, it wouldn't lock up, it just wouldn't progress, off the disk it was fine. so i chalked it up to the game and just played off the disk for a while.
now down to about a week ago I noticed me and some of my friends are having MAJOR issues launching -ghost recon 2 - summit strike- [ntsc]
it gives DDE as soon as it starts to cache. so we backedup our games many many times,(about 15) before we tried anything else, we noticed that about 1/10 tries the game would cache correctly and run. so we decided something else.
we started launching the game from XBMC and EVERY SINGLE time the game would load. but before we tried it launch we cleared the cache on xyz to make sure that it was re-caching always.
now we upgraded to the 565 build and nfl street 2 is launching everytime perfectly, however the 565 build still isn't launching ghost recon 2 - summit strike properly. launching from xbmc works fine no problems.
i know this is something that hasn't been seen on these forums yet, but i did extensive testing before i decided to post, also with some people i speak with only and they also confirm that when using ux, gr2ss rarely for them but launching the backup from xbmc works every time.
