I saw this in the thread way at the top of this board: PS2 without modchip, Using GS/AR/Swap Magic with Swipe/Slide Card or Flip Top, PS2 DVD backup booting 1)2)3)... etc I was wondering if this meathod works with official imports. I was having problems because I have done this meathod or something very similar to it when playing ps1 and ps2 (cd) backups. I notcied on the chart that there is nothing filled in for original imports + slidecard and AR2. If anyone could give advice as to what I should do. I don't really want to get a chip but if I have to then I will. Another thing that I'm going to try is to get someone to burn a copy onto a DVD-R. If anyone is still updating the chart and I can get this meathod to work with my original copy to work, I'll let you know.
