I'm a [bold]real[/bold] newb here so bare with me. My friend backed up my Lord of the Rings, Return of the King game by EA games. I have a swap disc type chip but i dont know what model. I also have a Gameshark. The method I use is this: 1)have GS disc in PS2 when it is off 2)hold on reset and allow GS to load 3)put in regular PS2 game after ejecting GS disc with the eject button 4) Go to "start games without codes" 5) release reset and swap PS2 game with Backup. 6) Press x or R1, R2 and O This method works for most of my backups. It ends up loading until the screen says "loading. . ." and then the PS2 makes a repetitive noise and doesnt run. My friend says you need a special way for loading in EA games. I dont have any other ideas. The backup is a dvd-r disc. Any suggestions?
