Magics will not play all my backups
Magics will not play all my backups –
Hi all i first had a magic 2 fitted in my v7 pal console and out of around 30 backups 5 or 6 wouldn't boot yet they all worked on my friends v5 console fitted with a messia chip .Ive now fitted a magic 3 chip and the same games still don't boot ive also tried copying them onto better media slower speed and still no luck ive also since seen on another forum that the magic chips don't play all backups can anybody else confirm this also if you have any titles that don't boot please can you post them in this thread
thanks very much
Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice, shame on me.
meyousikmann has piece by piece ans systematically taken Magic 2/3 down. Quite clinically. Search on his posts and you will have your answers.
Are the 'offending' games DVD rips?
The backups should work on a v7. It's just that the magic has problems with the older consoles.(eg: meyousikmann's v3 console)
I have the magic chip 2 in a ntsc v7. I have a little over thirty backups most of them rips like GT A-spec and all of them boot, including pow which is pal. Unfortunately I can not get the pal to ntsc patch to work with pow but that one boots too.
The games that don't boot for me is the ps1 anti-mod games like Vandal heart 2 but installing a switch to my chip should take care of that problem.
I had the same problem with my magic 2 in that it would not boot Dino Crisis psx. Found a patch on the internet so it would boot. Funny how they don't implement that protection into the ps2 games?
I think it just a matter of time before they do begin implementing protections on ps2 games. Soon you will be seeing the "Messiah 3 Stealth" chip or the "Invisible Magic Chip 4".
Yes ps2charlie there are dvd rips the games i can't get to boot are
tony hawks 3
007 agent under fire
simpsons road rage
im not sure if they are the pal or ntpc versions i got them from a friend of a friend but all these games boot straight away on my pals ps2 , i think my lazer is ok as i copyed a game for somebody at 24x and it tested ok i think of getting my ps2 re chipped with the messia
I also can thell you that Pacman World 2 (RIP/80 min) doesn't work on Magic 3. It works in the same console with an old XO-2. Haven't tested with 3.1, but with 3.0 it doesn't work.
