    Hi,
    I got a cube yesterday and I've been playing Rogue Leader. I'm on the battle of hoth mission and twice now the game has locked up at the same point. Right after you get into the X-wing to protect the transports the game just freezes. At first I thought it was just a fluke but it's done it twice now. Is my game defective or is it the console? I've been playing Resident Evil and have not had any issues so I tend to think it's the game. Anyone have any ideas?

    I've had RL since day one and it has no problems so maybe its a bad disk.

    I did some research on the net and apparently it's a fairly common problem. I'm going to exchange it for another copy to see if that helps. I can't imagine it being the cube as I've not had any problems playing RE but I can always try exchanging that too. I'll let you all know if I have any luck.

    Never had this problem. SSX Tricky can bug up on me, but thats the only buggy game I have.

    Went ahead and exchanged it for another copy and it didn't lock up during Hoth. Weird indeed but it looks like I have a working copy now. Now, if I can get better at bombing with the Y wing [​IMG]

    Mine has locked up once, but it hasn't repeated it, so I haven't bothered with replacing it.

    Rogue Leader is incredibly buggy.

    Wow. I thought I was the only one. Back when all the systems were about to come out I borrowed a cube and a copy of the launch titles. The only one I was really interested in was Rogue Leader. But the game would often lock up on the Hoth level. Not allways, but enough to annoy the heck out of me. So from what I read, it's a problem in the disk pressing? I DIDN"T have a memory card in the system (makes it even more annoying) since I didnt want to buy one if I wasnt going to buy a cube.

    I have to admit that is why I chose to get an XBOX over a cube, that and the sound, oh and the progressive scan. But I'll sure I'll grab a cube when winter hits again, Metroid looks sweet.

    Brian,
    I think some of it may be disc pressings though. Why else would one copy of the game freeze at one point every time while another copy does not? Neither had scratches on them so unless there were flaws under the surface of my first copy I think it has to do with pressings.

    Brian,
    I wasn't clear in my original post. What I was eluding to was just what you stated. That there were either errors the making of my disc or that they fixed the bugs in a later batch of discs. When I refer to pressings I meant different batches of the game not problems in the actual creation of the game.

    I've been playing it since it was released and have not had one lock up yet. Although I just about snapped the disc in two once because of "Strike at the Core". [​IMG]

    This game has got me swearing and threatening to toss controllers. Obviously no gameplay balancing went into it before they released it. It sure looks pretty though, but its an extremely "unfair" game.

    I can't tell you how many times I've died because the ship went in the opposite direction all of a sudden than I was pushing. Or I've gotten run into by a tie fighter with full shields and I blow up! Whats up with that? I'm on the mission where I just crashed the star destroyer and have to defend a commando transport. I am trying to take down AT-AT's, but my harpoon cable keeps attaching then unattaching at random...there doesn't seem to be any logic to it. I didn't have any of these problems with the Hoth battle.

    Is there difficulty settings? Maybe I missed it when I started...if so I'm gonna go back and play at extremely easy. Games are supposed to be fun right? Not yell at your TV frustrating...

    Well, Mike, since you just got it this weekend it is going to take a little more time to master it. Give it time, you'll get the hang of it. I had a lot of trouble on Razor Rendezvous, Raid on Bespin, Strike at the Core and The Battle of Endor at first, but now the're a sinch (accept Strike at the Core, which is the hardest level in the game). Just wait till you start trying for Medals. [​IMG]
    Personally, I'm glad the game was hard, I got a lot more out of it that way. Good Luck and may the Force be with you. (Lame, I know [​IMG])
    By the way, there is only one difficulty setting.

    I picked up a 'Cube and RL on release day. I've gone through the game completely and never had it lock up once. Weird.

    As for the difficulty, RL didn't seem any more difficult than other games I've played. It just takes a few tries to get through each mission. Keep at it.
