a couple of swap questions(I scoured the net)...
a couple of swap questions(I scoured the net)... –
So I have a v9 with a flip top and the current SM discs. I also have DVD loader and Cdloader(which I can't get to work.) and Breaker Pro is in the mail.
I have had some luck with my back ups but I'm trying to get a grasp on the endless and ever changing info about playing back ups
First off, what's a TOC refresh and how do you do it? From reading posts, it looks like you have to use it for bigger games, but I don't know for sure. How big do the games have to be in order to warrant a TOC refresh. if someone could give me a step by step, that would be much appreciated.
also, is there a sure fire way to get CDloader(v7all and 5.2 beta) to work on a v9?? I've had it load once in at least 20 tries.
the TOC is how big the data is on the disk.. it makes a "limit" so that any data beyond that point is not readable >_< so that's y it's good to get breaker pro.. since it has like 99mins or 1gb of toc :-p
to refresh the toc.. simply push the eject button and place the disk bak in! thus the ps2 will know u ejected and will refresh it's toc ^_^ then u can boot all ur dvdrips! (original dvd games ripped out movies or sound or special features or demos to fit on ONE cd) lol (i hate dvd-rips.. can be hard on the laser)
hmmm.. since u have a ver9 and u should have a.. swapmagic3.2!! (must have a .2) then it sohuld boot heh.. um.. i tihnk it's the toc of cdlaoder.. it's ToO small so u either but a BIG dummy file in the BEGINNING of the disk or use a SMALL ps2 (or ps1 i guess) to refresh the toc and it SHOULD work..heh...
i havee a ver7 wit swap magic cd and dvd 2.0! heh.. ^_^ i'm like the master of swapp'n mwahahhaahah
thanks for the info! that helps a lot....now, I tried loading a game like that and I must be doing something wrong. check it out, here's what I've tried:
1. Put in SM 3.2 dvd
2. swap for DVD loader
3. hit eject, put in FFVII disc 3(it's pretty small, I think)
4. swapped that out and put in a 1:1 of Street Fighter Anniversery
5. screen turns red and freezes.
I also tried that again with VF4(not Evo) instead, same results. smfix.com says you need to use cdloader beta 5.2 for SFA but does it really make a difference?
Also, when I load up SFA from the Swap DVD, I can get to a screen where you choose which SF game to play and after choose one it freezes. lemme know if you know what's going on with this one. Thanks.
whoops, nevermind...you meant using a TOC refresh for Cdloader...i'll try that out...
Got it to work! Now i see what's going on with this...now, how do I get PS1 games to load...same way?
ps1 games need gameshark1 or breakerpro
yup the only boot cd that game boot ps2 games on a PS2 is the breaker pro, or an old ps1 game shark mite do it lol ^_^...
get the breaker pro though... since it has a big toc u can use it to boot ur dvdrips! (mayb that's y the games aren't boot'n for u.. cause they dvd rips?)
yes dvd rips dont work with swap magic. so far all my ps1 backups work with gameshark.
i seriously dont get the whole dvd rip thing though...isnt it technically illegal cause your d/ling it?
Like backups and stuff
lol shure... i ithnk of it as.. back'n up games that i WILL buy in the future :-p heh
anyways... swap magic 3.2 CAN boot dvdrips if it done'st go beyond the TOC if it does.. u hafta refresh the TOC wit the breaker pro :-p
