Speedhack question
#1
Why is the speedhack "Enable fast CDVD" not recommended?

I'm guessing some games rely on the timing of the disc drive in such a way that it being to fast can make them wonky(remember having this problem with HD Loader).

Is that it?

Fast CDVD is not recommended because some games relied on the fixed time a PS2 would take to load something, relied on that for timing. When the hack is activated, that timing is thrown to hell, so these few games will crash/glitch as things are left unloaded.
