Xenoblade from a 16gb USB stick- LOOONG load times/freezes
I'm trying to run Xenoblade from a USB stick but it keeps freezing at official load times and during the opening cut scene. It boots up normally but when I go to start a new game, it takes at least 5 minutes for the opening scene to start. During random times of the opening scene, the game freezes. I'm somewhat illiterate when it comes to this stuff so please try and throw me a bone. Could it be because I'm running it from a flash drive?
I'm using Configure USB Loader, and i used the "Joystiq- How to play Xenoblade Chronicles if you live in North America", so I'm using IOS 248. I ran a syscheck, and it seems that IOS 249 is stubbed, but since I'm not using it to boot Xenoblade, I'm guessing it doesn't matter. Nonetheless, I tried recopying the meta file but it still registers as stubbed, but again, I'm guessing it doesn't matter because I'm using 248.
Can anyone shed some light on this? What settings were used in CFG on the actual game to get it to work? Forcing NTSC? Switching the language to English? Tried these things and it still didn't work. Any other settings I should adjust?
