You need: - Action Replay Max - CDLoader (either on a disc or as an .elf file) - an original big TOC PS2 game and these are the steps: 1. For force-swapping, meaning you swap the disc while it's still spinning, load ARMAX up normally, select cheats and press Start. At the "Ensure your game disc is inserted" screen, pull out the tray and swap it with your CDLoader disc. It should boot up. Once it has, press Eject and refresh TOC with an original game. Press X and at the "Use EA Method" screen, pull out the tray and swap it for your backup. Or, and this is a better way because it doesn't involve pulling the tray out while the disc is still spinning... 2. Read the ARMAX manual on how to create a bootable disc which can be booted through the Media Player function. Put only the CDLoader.elf file on it, which you have to rename to autoexec.elf. Once you have burnt your disc, load ARMAX up normally, select cheats and press Start. At the "Ensure your game disc is inserted" screen, press Eject but don't take out your ARMAX disc yet. Instead, press Eject again to close the tray. Let ARMAX boot up again, and this time, go straight to its Media Player function. Once that has loaded, press Eject and put in your created "bootable disc". CDLoader should boot up. Once it has, just follow the above instructions and go through the refresh TOC process. Both methods were from my own ideas and have been tested by me on my fat PS2 console.
