question on Magic2 to Magic3.1 swap....
question on Magic2 to Magic3.1 swap.... –
Currently i have a Magic 2 on my ver.7. Since Magic3.1 has the sleep mode i thought switching to that one since they are dirt cheap. One question is does it wire up the same as Magic2? I'm hoping it does then all i have to do is resolder just the wires that mount on the chip instead of on the circuit board. I wanna play some the new games (originals) online but i cant with the M2. thanks
Don't get a Magic 3.1 for your v7. It won't get by v7 protected games. Get an Apple Pro or Duo from www.modchips.cc Both are under $20.
US V7 PS2 w/ Apple Pro
LG GCC-4480B 48X24X48X16 CD-RW/DVD-ROM Combo
Agreed, and you will only have to swap a few wires (if that)
V7- Messiah2 modded, my baby
V1.0 Xecuter 2.0 Pro '
So will the wires basically match up to the new chip or will i have to rewire the whole thing including the circuit baord? Are the chips similar with the same letter pads on the chip? thanks
what about a magic3.2 or V?
there is no actual magic 3.2
and yes, with the magic v, most of the wires are still the same.
I have a ps2v7 ntsc with magic 3.1 that will be upgraded to dms3. I lived in korea for a year and had 2 modded psone so I purchased alot of psone on the economy. When I upgraded to ps2v7 w/magic 3.1 I could not load them. I then bought a premod ps2v7 w/messiah for 30 dollars more and I got another magic 3.1 that wouldn't load korean economy games. I had alot of problem loading codes for AR in backups and those Max payne, dues ex, splitter cell game issues. I then bought a ps2v9 and sent 1 ps2v7 w/magic 3,1 and the v-9 to have dms3 fitted. Wow, what a chip. Loads all AR ARMAX codes in backups, plays those korean games. I will eventually remove the last magic 3.1 for dms3v2. My max payne now will go past the entry and play through. Magic 3.1 was a bad solution for me in two ps2v7 costly mistake. I am now happy as hell with dms3 performing to manufacture specs. Magic 3.1 in a ps2v7 does not load all ps2 backups and is a very inferior chip.
there's like 3 or 4 ps2 games that it has problems with. max payne, splinter cell, starsky & hutch, and something else. and it isnt that the games "do not load". they work until a known issue with v7 and above ps2's occurs due to the programming of the game. and with nothing stopping you from playing ANY of those games on a pc or another console, you arent missing anything anyway.
tho i dunno what the hell you're talking about a magic 3.1 not loading ps1 backups, because it'll load ps1 backups just fine.
