    You need a converter. PM me with your email and I'll give you it along with instructions on using it.

    Swap magic is not enough ?

    Patches the ISO disc image to fix the colour and screen to work with your region. And no, Swap Magic isn't enough. It has a region force boot method but cuts the screen. Converter is much better. PM for it.

    I'm having trouble just even playing the import game by itself. I have the swap magic discs and tools but just can't seem to get the game to load. . . am i going to be forced to just mod my PS2(slim) or am i doing something wrong?

    I'm still having difficulties. I have both disc however, i think that my DVD ROm driver disc is faulty. When i place it into my machine it doesn't load any swap disc screen or anything but rather just loads the select memory card/disc screen.
    The game in question that I'm trying to play is Battle Stadium D.O.N. However, i can't seem to load it with the CD rom driver disc. Which then leads me to assume that i'd have to use the DVD one, however i can't even get to a swap disc screen.
    Your thought on asolution or the problem itself . . . Thanks
