Slow Loading times and lag on disc?

I never played the Arcade version, only the disc version... My question to those who own the arcade version:

Is it normally very laggy and have very slow loading times? It's getting a little difficult to play some of these QTEs because the game is so choppy.

Just curious if it's the disc or if the arcade is the same.

Thanks

SPOILERS, SPOILERS!!!

I played the arcade version before and I didn't have any lag like I'm having with the disc version. I'm glitched on episode 2 where (SPOILERS), the hostage situation is towards the end of the episode where she will shoot you even though you stop moving.

I was able to fix it once by exiting to the dashboard and going back into the game but it glitched again when you're supposed to take more steps towards her. I don't get why it won't let us install to the hard drive.

Same here. I've yet to install it to my hard drive as I finally ran out of space but I hope it fixes the problem.

You can't install to the HDD. I managed to fix the glitch on episode 2 but I had to restart my console to get it to work.

Yep, I also have this problem. I've only played the first 2 episodes. It wasn't too bad in the first episode but the second episode had a lot of issues.

that's asinine take an arcade release throw it on disc an it turns out to be worse then it's downloadable counterpart, and to make matters worse there's no possible way of downloading the game to HDD. Somethings wrong with this picture....

Shit, I hope they fix whatever is wrong with the disc version and soon. I sent it to my friend for Christmas and I'd hate for her enjoyment of this great game to be ruined by bugs and glitches.

Oh noes. Good thing I didn't go out and buy this CE just to put into my collection. Man this would really anger me since I fell in love with the game playing it via Arcade. =x

I plan on eventually getting the PS3 version myself just to physically own this game. The PS3 version doesn't seem to be hit as bad, at least.

I'd think you be ok with the PS3 version since you have to install any game before you can play anyway.

I finished episode 3 and it wasn't nearly as laggy as episode 2. I only noticed a big slow down once but I did encounter a bug where dialogue would start, play for about a second or so, then stop and repeat from the beginning. Pausing the game and resuming it seemed to fix it.

According to Telltale apparently this is only an issue with the 4GB slim model. Is this true?

Either way, seems like Telltale is aware of the issues.

Here's to hoping they didn't go cheap on the already dirt cheap CDs used to house our game!

Nope. Still using a 120GB Elite.

Episode 3 was leagues better than episode 2 frame-rate wise. Even the downloadable version of Episode 2 is apparently pretty laggy. The only problem I had with Episode 3 was a conversation I had with someone where we both stuttered on the first word of the sentence. It was too perfect when we both said "P-Push it." I half expected the song to start playing.

Having played only since the title update (got this Thursday), I haven't experienced any issues with Episode 1 or 2 (all I've played). Will keep posted.

I haven't played Episode 4 or 5 yet, but I can confirm I had absolutely no problems with Episode 3 on the disc. No glitches, no lag (that I remember) and no freezing or anything.

Didn't experience the problem where it tells me I have to play Episode 1 again either that I saw people having and backing up their saves (though I still backed it up in case and will continue to for Ep.4 and 5 just to be on the safe side).

So I mean, I'm having no problems so far, but knock-on-wood, I suppose. Hope this helps people.

I returned my copy of the game and bought yesterday during that cheap deal. Thanks for the feedback though.

I got all 5 episodes on arcade and I hadn't encountered any bugs at all until I got to episode 3 halfway and it lagged a bit and then when I went to start episode 4, it reset me to episode 1.

Just finished up Episode 1 (free download on LIVE). There was a ton of lag. Some parts were unplayable it was so bad.

***SPOILERS***
When defending the shop at the end, I kept failing because I couldn't see what was going on from the lag. It was right when you have to decide who to save. Every time, I'd have to watch the whole cutscene of the store being attacked.
***END SPOILERS***

I don't know why they don't have a skip cutscene feature. Ruins replayablity for me. Pretty sure Jurassic Park let you skip parts.

I am on Episode 5 (DLC style) currently, and have not had much for problems. A Little lag when changing to a quick cut scene or whatever, but not bad.

Also, make sure you ALWAYS (and I mean always) exit back the the xbox dashboard when playing ANY arcade games to turn off your xbox. This is the BEST way to save any game data. I heard this a few years back when some data got lost because I was turning off my xbox when in an arcade game. Just a helpful tip!

Edit: Finished the game. Barely ANY hiccups at all. I have the Xbox Elite with the 120 gb hd. Downloaded each episode since I was afraid of the retail version.

Been playing off the disc, on Episode 5 now. Still no lagging that really did any harm or messed anything up for me. All been smooth sailing and a few hiccups for me.

So far.

Why is there no option to install the game from the disc to your HDD? I always install my games...

This coupled with the poor control setup (no invert y axis, and that both controlling where you look on the screen and action buttons are controlled by your right thumb) are a little dissapointing. I would have thought that a patch would have addressed these problems by now.

Yep, had that problems, too. (DLC)
Episode 1 & 2 worked fine for me, but 3, 4, 5 seemed a bit laggy whenever a "panic event" started, sometimes also at the beginning of a cutscene.
But I never had a problem with my gamesaves and not being able to play the game anymore.

I think it depends a bit on luck
