Sitting around the other day and suddenly it dawned on me, what if the game wasn't patched anymore?
Here's a little something i came up with:
1. Go to your system blade and highlight "Memory"
2. Hit Y then Mash in X, X, LB, RB, X, X, when the system asks if you're sure, say yes to clear all updates and cache from your hard drive.
3. Fire up Oblivion, but DON'T update.
4. There is no step 4.
Dorian's gold, Arrow duping and Horseback shopping all work again, go crazy. once you're stocked up, re-update if desired. if you find you need to dupe again, repeat. The game will complain about missing data files but i have not observed any ill effects from this in the 3 days I've been playing unpatched.
Now if only we can find a way to delete all the useless low level spells cluttering up our inventories.
