    Spilinter cell backups cant be used with no-solder or fliptops becuse there another disc check after the main menu. it would take a solder type chip to play the backup.

    Hold On!!

    What I have:
    PS2 V4,no solder mod and using Swap Magic.

    How I copy:
    Usually use Nero and choose DVD Copy.

    Splinter Cell does work with mine. I have been reading that for some it doesn't work.

    Are most of you using a GShark and/or an Action Replay?

    The only game I cant get to work with Swap Magic is Vice City. I have a toal of 24 games done. The one plus with using Swap Magic discs is that if it is an EA game - you don't have to patch it.

    Hope this helps!!

    i also have the same problem, but i heard of two resolutions, im not sure if they work yet cause i havent checked it out yet, but ill get back to it, but the first solution is to play the the original and save after the first level, after each level it will go back to the browser screen, so u have to reload (using the whole swap disk procedure) and then the game should load at the last save point and the second is something about a cd loader that u can get through kazaa or something

    eholy i bet you have a magic 3.1 and v7 board there is some kind of mod check on a few games that see the magic chip on v7 ps2's
    I have one. soon as the new v8 gets tested im getting 1 with messiah 2 pro.

    to play oringnal you need to hold reset until sony browser comes on this turns magic chip off.

    if you don't use a solder modchip, there is still a way to play games like splinter cell that does a multiple cd checks. you will need to use a program called CD Loader in conjunction with Swap Magic. PM me with you email address and i will send it to you with intructions. It does take 4 swaps, so its not really worth it for most games with this protection, but it is for splinter cell.
