    Ok so I have the swap magic 2.0 discs and it won't load God of War 2 , so I read that try 3.8 and it should solve the problem. I found it online and downloaded it but it came with alot of other programs and files etc. that I am not to sure what to do with and figures the readme was in a different language that I cannot recognize. Does anyone know how to make the Swap Magic 3.8 disc so that you can pop it in after you load the 2.0 version?

    The download I have came with

    -CD_DVD-ROM Generator 2.00_SONY + Rebuild Tutorial
    -iml2dvdv10-pl
    -Dummy File Creator 11
    -Then the actually swap magic that has a System file , a SCES_500.03 file , and a folder with a bunch of .IRX files in it.

    Here is the read-me if anyone happens to be able to translate the instructions.

    Witam, u mnie dziala, juz tlumacze jak trzeba wypalic:
    Programem DummyFile tworzymy 2 pliki po 2,17GB (2227MB).
    Odpalamy program CDVDGEN, wybieramy Create new project, nast. DVD-ROM Master Disc.
    Pozniej wrzucamy wszystkie pliki Swap Magica oraz te 2 pliki, ktore utworzylismy
    w programie DummyFile. Przechodzimy do zakladki Volume i w miejsce
    Disc name wpisujemy: SCES 50003 oraz w polu License area wybieramy Europe.
    Klikamy w File i Export iml file. Zapisujemy plik pod dowolna nazwa. Po wykonaniu
    tych czynnoœci otwieramy IML2DVD, a nastêpnie w nim nasz plik iml, który zapisaliœmy
    przed chwil¹. Po tej czynnoœci wybieramy miejsce docelowe, gdzie program ma zapisac nam
    obraz ISO, ktory bedziemy mogli wypalic programem Alcohol 120%, DVD Decrypter (polecam) lub innym
    narzedziem do nagrywania plyt.
    P.S. ja nagrywalem z predkoscia 4x na plycie DVD+R Esperanza.

    Mysle, ze w miare jasno to opisalem
    Pozdrawiam

    Any help would be GREATLY appreciated. Thank you much..

    From the files you have, hopefully the DVD files not CD files.
    1) install CD_DVD-rom Gen, Dummy File Creator, and iml2dvd
    2) Create a Dummy file. I'm not sure of the size you need I don't
    know the size of the files you have. Just make it as big as
    possible, maybe around 1 gig if there's room. Just keep total
    file size under the size of your SM 2.0 disk and it should due.
    3) Run cd dvd-gen and select create new project then select DVD-ROM
    Master Disk
    4) drag all SM 3.8 files and folders + dummy file into CD_DVD-Gen.
    5) Click Volume tab and insert SCES 50003 in the disk name field,
    put PLAYSTATION in producer and copywriter fields.
    6) Click file at the top select Export iml file.
    7) Choose destination and wait for file creation, then close CD_DVD
    Generator
    8) Now open iml2dvd and choose your newly created iml file.
    9) sit back and wait for your iso to be created then burn with Alcohol
    120% or Nero.

    Thanks for the reply when I try to install the cdvdgen_20 an error message pops up saying "The parameter is Incorrect" I have tried other downloads same result. Any idea why its doing that? Thanks again though for the explanation on how to do it. Would using version 1.5 make any difference?

    Not sure on that error, but if you have v1.5 installed than your fine. Also goto sksapps.com to find the patch for v1.5 that cracks the disc size limit. This will come in handy if you have to rebuild/flatten any DVD9 games.

    I only use v1.5 because I couldn't find the patch file for v2.0. It works the same for me I have never had a problem.
