    On the cd version of sm, does anyone know the difference between normal boot and special boot? Also, I had a question about PS2 Reality media player. I can't get it to work. I compiled with cdgenps2 and fixed the 16 bad sectors. Anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

    I'm not sure what the difference is. When my CD or DVD won't boot, I do a special boot and it usually works. That's all I know and it's all I need to know:)

    damn! guess i didn't think to use 'special boot' when my archives didn't work - i'd just throw the dvd-r's away! bummer. :-(

    oh well...I'll just 2x check it next time :p

    [bold]to mooogle:[/bold] you use the dvd disc when when your backup is on a dvd-r and the cd disc when your backup is on a cd-r. Almost all of the ps2 games are on DVD so you'll use the swap magic DVD disc a lot more. I mainly use the CD for emulators.

    [bold]to cloner:[/bold] To do a special boot you just press the "square" button on the controller instead of the "x" button when you're booting the disc.

    ah i guess that makes sense, dunno y i didnt think of that b4 =P

    But that still doesnt solve my FFX-2 problem, in which the title screen comes up where i can choose start new game or load game no problems, but when i start a new game it freezes the gameon the start up FMV, im using swap magic 3.3 so wat could the problem be?
