    Hi. I've poked around the forum a bit and I've seen mentioned here and there how people have been using Swap Magic's boot elf from mass storage option to load games. However, nobody has posted good instructions and I'm confused as to what I need to do to make it work. Any info would be appreciated, thanks.

    use swap magic to boot usbadvance elf from usb storage device.

    usbadvance elf will then run games from usb mass storage device.

    there are clear tutorials on this around, just look.

    or get this collection of tutorials.

    revision 1 is down the bottom, i cant remember but i m 99% sure i included a tutorial on how to run games via this method.

    I specifically said using Swap Magic 3.6, which I intended to mean using Swap Magic directly, not using its boot elf from mass storage feature which I already know about. I don't want to use USBAdvance because the mass storage driver it uses is crap.

    And if you're wondering why I would think Swap Magic can do this, it's because in the USBAdvance threads, there are several people who mention doing this.
