Oh, wow.... awesome work! Thanks for finding this fix, and sharing it with everyone!
I'm VERY happy to help! :D
Mask (or anyone, really), PLEASE let us know if you experience anything weird by trying it. We have actually beat the game with 3 different endings now since doing that, so MY experience is that it's pretty solid. That said, I would hate nothing more than to recommend an action that messes up somebody's game!!
