Hello, I am using SwapMagic to boot my backups in conjunction with a PS2 FlipTop. I recently got all the hardware I needed in order to play backups. In addition, I got Madden 2005 for my PS2. After running the game flawlessly on my PS2 using the original, I decided to make a working backup and see what I could do. Well, unfortunately, after wasting two DVD-R's, I burnt a working copy on the third try. However, the game is "slower" than the original. That is, the actual gameplay itself is fine, but the menu's load a tad slower and the game acts like its frozen prior to showing a replay. Any suggestions or is this just the quality of all backups when used in conjunction with a PS2 FlipTop and SwapMagic? Additional Notes: DVD Burner = Pioneer DVR-108 DVD-R Media: Memorex 8x Settings: "BURN Proof" is checked; Write Speed is 1x Also, I copy an image to my harddrive and then burn it using DVD Decrypter ISO Read/Write Mode. Thanks!
