Uhm no....Hotswapping is still an option. As you should know there are various ways of getting saves on the xbox without hotswapping. (making usb adapters or using an action replay). If you don't like hotswapping you can simply choose not to.
No offence but you really make no sense
And you're insane bro.
IF you dont have those "other means" you have to hotswap, correct?
*Ways to get your gamesave onto the HDD.
-Action Replay: Downfall if you cannot/dont want to purchase it.
-Hardware modification (for your mem card/controller): Downfall if you cannot perform it.
-Know someone with a modded system and memory card: Downfall if you do not know someone.
-Hotswapping: Downfall period.
Am I missing any other methods to get the gamesave to your hard drive? Seriously, I'd like to know, because all I see is downfalls if you happen to be unlucky enough to not have the things I listed with hotswapping being the only alternative: which is also a downfall.
You just don't want to admit that your acclaimed method of softmodding has a downfall; when there is NOTHING wrong with that at all man.
I've been modding Xbox's since the freaking xtender modchip, you can say I'm certain better than the "average" end user with the Xbox, and you know how many of those 4 options I'd have covered if my own Xbox fried and I had to buy a new one (ignoring the fact I have more than 1 xbox)? I'd STILL be forced to hotswap, for I don't know a single person who has modded their Xbox, I'm not buying action replay, and I'm not doing any dumb hardware modifications (even though I can, like I said I've soldered the 30+ wires for xtender) when it's much easier just to hotswap.
I don't get what your not understanding, unless either:
a.) there is some other way to get the gamesave on the box I don't know of that is much easier and free.
b.) you're grossly overestimating the # of modded systems out there and generalizing people to be like yourself -- aka geek, and no I'm not dissing you there either, I'm a freakin engineering major right now with near a 4.0 in college -- in either case that is not the norm.
Now please explain to me if there's some alternative to those 4 things, and if your not capable / cannot obtain the necessary tools/ability to perform those 4 things, how the gamesave method does not have a downfall being one of those first three listed???
EDIT: Im not understanding why you have been disrespecting me just because I'm not making sense to you. Don't act so imperialistic, you're supposed to be an example to users of this forum. Sure you help *some* people, but you could be alot nicer to *some* people as well. And if any of my replies to you have ever sounded disrespectful I assure you I don't mean them to, so don't take it that way, tone has a way of getting lost on the Internet.
