hello, if i have swap magic 3.3 do i need to use the cd/dvd loader found on swapmagicfix . com????
dependin on what game for example if you want to boot up ghost recon 2 then you will need dvd loader, also cd loader can fix load problems
zerosouls, cd/dvd loader is built into swap magic 3.3
uh no it's not you still need dvd loader to boot up ghost recon 2 and many other games
ghost recon isn't listed on swapmagicfix. Also, cd loader and dvd loader are the exact same program.
i know it depends on what you want to use so what ever is easier you may want to have both for cd and dvd smd and recon 2 you need the dvd loader, ive watched swapmagicfix and there not very updated
But what i was saying is that the cd/dvd loader is built into the new swap magic 3.3. So there is no need to use them if you have it.
except for ghost recon 2
do you have swap magic 3.3?
course i do, most of us have tried gr2 with just smd3.3 it will NOT work a lone unless you use dvd loader
Thats funny cause GR2 works with just SMD 3.3 for me.
Heh, you do know you have to hit '' instead of 'X' for a special boot right?
no and many others don't.....
how do i  with my swap magic 3.3 disks?
i have a game that is pal that i cannt get to play
do or doesnt the swap magic have dvd cd loader on them?
any suggestions would be great thanks
lol, it means hit square instead of x when you load the backup.
oh by the way that doesn't even work iv'e verified it with many other peoples to, it doesn't matter anymore tho recon2 sucks
What games *don't* work with Swap Magic 3.3 without a loader? So far I haven't encountered any, and I've tried quite a few. I don't have Ghost Recon 2 because, as you said, it is supposed to be a pretty mediocre game.
hi,just curious to know what sort of games require this "special boot" 
with regards hursty
hehe, i don't have any games that require it, but i would imagine if it doesn't boot normally, give the special boot a try.
Originally i assumed that the 'special boot' referred to the games that used to require cd/dvd loader with SMD v3.0, but i really don't know.
