guys..just bear with me. when i didn't use the Save Game from ME1..ME2 rarely crashed. but after i imported the Save Game from ME1 and played ME2 with that...my game crashed very frequently. the ME1 Save Game that i used was from a patched ME1 (v1.02). remember ME2 is un-patched retail and the trainer we use with ME2 is for the un-patched retail version. could that be the reason for the crashes? one other thing..i saved a game in ME2 re-writing my previous save..and whenever i 'resumed' the game from there..it crashed. could all this be because of the Save Game from a patched ME1?
Besides, if there was a correlation between patches and game saves, I imagine they'd have programmed the three different possibilities into the game - unpatched, 1.01, and 1.02 patches.
It may have something to do with the trainer, depending on how the game checks, alters, and confirms values which the trainer changes and/or freezes, but I wouldn't know for sure. The crashes seem somewhat random... for example, I had the game crash twice within an hour yesterday, but today I've been playing it for 5 hours without a single problem.
There's a patch being released soon anyway, and there are a few fixes for issues which could be causing crashes so that may fix whatever's going on.
thank you. but to be honest i did doubt myself before posting it. i had this nagging doubt at the back of my head these past few days and i just wanted to get it off my chest and see what everyone had to say about it. although when it first occurred to me it did seem very reasonable and plausible. well...i hope others read it and post their opinions too. yea...i read about the upcoming patch and i really hope its a godsend to ME lovers like us.
