Hello. My first post here. After reading back and forth on these forums for months, I finally joined up. Anyway, I received the new Swap 3.3 set (I've had the older one for some time now). For those sitting on the border with the old version, this is for you. After much testing, I came to these conclusion. (BTW, I am speaking for v7 and v9 PS2s) Swap DVD 3.3 1. elminates the need for any kind of "extra" boot discs (DVD loader, 5.2 beta). I still have not tested out the CogSwap Loader (I don't have problems with FFX movies, Star Wars: Battlefront - I cropped that and Starsky & Hutch, I don't have) so I can not say anything right now. As for super problems games like Dukes of Hazzard (try it without DVDloader and you know what I mean), it loads quickly and perfectly with DVD 3.3. No more Swap DVD then loader then selecting boot option then back to Swap DVD then the game - just DVD 3.3 and game. Same thing with Beta 5.2 disc, (most noticable problem game is SF Anniversary Coll and it works flawlessly with DVD 3.3 without doing the switching and swapping hassle.) 2. No more blue/green border waiting, it just boots and goes to game - split second or two quicker than 2.0 3. Games prevously unplayable. . . are now playable. Onimusha: Blade Warriors was not at all possible on v7+ machines in the past with it's famous triple check. Now it works with DVD 3.3! Perhaps those empty spaces on swapmagicfix under the v7+ column will now work with 3.3. Perhaps yall can help me on that. For those that were really wanting to play Britney's Dance Beat, well it just might happen. Swap CD 3.3 1. eliminates need of extra boot discs (cdloader, 5.2 beta cd). Games like Monopoly Party (game locks up when loading the Classic themed monopoly board without use of cdloader) works flawlessly now. 2. fixes major loading problem that old version does not recognize game. Quite a few PS2 CD games would just spin very fast upon loading and it never loads. Repeated attempts may net you a sucessful load. My sure fire way in the past was just to eject the Swap CD after it loaded, put in the Breaker Pro CD (refreshing the TOC) and then inserting the backup game via fliptop - it works everytime. The new CD 3.3 eliminates the need of refreshing the TOC to make the game readable, and it loads all the PS2 CD games the first time. Saves time, damage to your PS2 spinning like 50 mph and the need of buying a Breaker Pro CD. However, very large games still require the Breaker Pro CD. CD 3.3 just fixes the "won't read game the first time" problem. 3. Games previously unplayable are playable. Games like Looney Tunes: Space Race and Hot Wheels: World Race (both lock up when loading any track to race on). Expands compatability that much more. So in summary, this new 3.3 set virtually eliminates all the extra boot discs (DVD/CD loader, 5.2, etc), saving all the hassle of finding and swapping them (or remembering which order of disks to reach the end). It expands compatability to those games that were unplayable before, and therefore, making this set virtually 100% compatable with all PS2 games. It does not play PS1 games - you need the Breaker Pro CD for that, bottom line. I like the new set. . . however the decision is yours. Thanks.
