    Hi People,

    i have a few questions about backing up ps2 games

    i have a version 7 ps2 with a matrix infinity chip.
    i use dvd decrypter to do my backups.
    i have done loads of backups every1 so far has been succesful but i have a couple of questions.

    ok

    Q.1 - i have noticed backing up gt4 is impossible at the moment.

    but is that the only dual layer game that wont work
    or do all dual layer games not work.

    Q.2 - i have seen that u need a patch for mercenaries
    does that include mod chipped consoles
    or just ppl using swap magic ( MY PS2 IS PAL )

    Q.3 - considering my version of PS2 and my mod chip
    and that i use dvd decrypter to backup my games

    is there any games i need patches 4 so they will run correctly.

    Q.4 - i have seen that alot of ppl have had trouble with fifa street.

    i have backedup a copy of fifa street and it works perfectly how come i did not need a patch or a fix.

    any help would be great

    thanx

    [bold]but is that the only dual layer game that wont work
    or do all dual layer games not work.
    [/bold]

    dual layer games have to be resized(down),or split onto 2 dvd's

    [bold]i have seen that u need a patch for mercenaries
    does that include mod chipped consoles
    or just ppl using swap magic ( MY PS2 IS PAL )
    [/bold]

    i have not patched mine


    [bold]is there any games i need patches 4 so they will run correctly.
    [/bold]

    you shouldnt have many problems with a modchip


    [bold]i have backedup a copy of fifa street and it works perfectly how come i did not need a patch or a fix.

    its very difficult,there are no guides that i know of

    it takes a lot of work,there are not many games that require this anyways,most DVD-9 are jusr downsized to fit on DVD-5,the only game i have on 2 dvd's is xenosage 2

    I have heard also that the Champions Of Norath, and Champions Return To Arms are also dual layer. But other than those and GT4 those are all i have heard about myself.

    there are quite a few on DVD-9,but there are only a small minority that cannot be resized to fit onto DVD-5,
    champions of norath is another(on 2 dvd's),i have that as well,i forgot,i've got hundreds of games,i lose track!!!
