    Load & pops can get you reset. That's all I can think of. Always a risk of ban but unheard of with gamesaves. You can lose your data if you don't back it up.

    Thanks!

    load and pops? lol sry total noob here.

    does this give you all the achievements that the gamesave is entitled to as well? also is there a thread or post somewhere that can give me more info or details on how to back up and use gamesaves?

    thanks again and sorry for the noobness :)

    Load & Pops are where you load a gamesave and unlock achievements upon loading.

    You can get achievements while on modded gamesaves.

    If you go to options in 360 Revolution you can make it auto backup your saves. Alternatively you can right click the file and copy and paste somewhere.

    I generally only use load & pop saves if I have one or two achievements to go that are giving me trouble - that way it looks more legit. There's always a risk, in my opinion, but I haven't heard of anyone being banned for using gamesaves because for the most part people seem to be relatively smart about it.

    Best to do them offline and they should only be 1player achievements this way is best and safe once thats done just go online so the data can sync up and u should be good to go. ;)

    if you belong to any of the sites like True achievements and you have load and pop saves(even offline) their scanner will pick it up. I had my last gamertag removed from that site but it never got banned by Microsoft.
