Magic 2 Clone (v5/6) –
I would like to purchase this modchip selling as "Magic 2 Clone (v5/6)" but wish to know if it will play the new dvd9 titles. On the website it says "do not solder the "Z" GameShark point or else the mod will not function". Reading the other clone reviews im assuming it will not boot GS either, but i dont really care about that. All i really want to know is if it can play dvd9 titles. Thanks
The Magic clones will work with Action Replay but apparently not with Gameshark. DVD9 movies and games are not dependant on the modchip and will work fine.
I have found it easier to boot DVD9 games behind GS2/AR2. The laser finds it hard to make out the groove and so it often doesn't even see the disk. But if you boot DVD9 games behind AR2/GS2 without codes, then it jumps in at a different point and loads more smoothly. This is, in fact, a benefit of the modchip if the DVD9 title is an import. I've proved this out with Magic 2 Clone (see my reviews).
