Gameshark 1.3 for ps2 ~~~Can I use instead of swapmagic?
Gameshark 1.3 for ps2 ~~~Can I use instead of swapmagic? –
I read a couple guides that said there is a way to play ps2 backups using the Gameshark CD and a slide card, the same way that swap magic would work...the problem is that all those guides were written in 2004...
I just bought a version 1.3 gameshark. Could somebody point me in the right direction here...Is there anything I can do with the 1.3 version, or is it only the 1.0 version that used to work.
As long as the disc is not spining you can do swap, BUT, with FMCB and ESR you dont need to do swap, only patch your games.
If you need it to launch the installation, well, GS works pretty well, even if it is spining, but its a little risky, but since you will be doing this only once.....
have a nice day
It's not recomended since it can damage your DVD drive.
Yea I just want to do it once...is the guide in the "sticky" the one to follow using a gameshark?

Is it a Gameshark 2 v1.3

boot your gameshark 2, use fliptop or slide tool to swap with the disc you made, choose start game with no codes.
If that doesn't work, then you could try to install the PS1 exploit first
If you have usb support , you can use the following method.
If not then use the PS2 Exploit Utility 5.1 and save output as CD
Then boot your gameshark 2, use fliptop or slide tool to swap with the disc you made, choose start game with no codes.
It explains it pretty well what you need to do there.
Once thats installed, you can then install fmcb 1.7
Great way to put the exploit on the PS2 if you don't wanna spend that little extra money on a swapmagic/action replay.

Never knew why I never seen this method put on similar sites that host tuts for ARMAX/Swap magic since it's pretty much the same way. (sorta...)
Be aware that the PS1 exploit that some of the other guys mentioned will only work on a fat PS2, but never on a slim PStwo. (Sony eliminated that possibility for the slim models.)

Yes I only assumed guypsxscene has a FAT PS2 because he mentioned using a slide card.
Don't sell the Gameshark off just yet. I purchased a v1.3 from Walmart two+ weeks ago and since then I've managed to get uLE working to install FMCB with ESR. I can write up a tut on it, but by now you've probably figured it out.
