    Hello everyone,

    Ok here's the problem, Now about 2 months back i ordered and received a copy of swap magic 3.6 plus in the mail which turnt out to be defected as my PSTwo was brand new and the DVD version would not load, This past week i decided to order a new one since i had been using my CD version to boot DVD-R games... now both of the new disc work fine so far but i am having a few problems booting games, "Scarface the world is your" was able to work before using "CDLoader 3" and using the ea method... Now when i load my swap magic DVD, put scarface in and choose "Load program" it just gives me a "Invalid disc error" or something of that nature... When i tried NBA live 2007 it works fine but unlike the CDLoader method it skips ALOT and is very choppy... I was hoping someone here could fill me in as this is my first official Swap magic since i had been using the cd 4 swap ea method before and never used the DVD, Maybe i am missing something ?

    P.S. I am currently using the tape and tissue mod and my PStwo is a v.12 all games work fine using the cdloader method, hopefully someone here can help :(

    Well with "Scarface the world is yours" you will need something called Zoneloader. To use Zoneloader you will need to swap it in between Swapmagic and the backup.
    1.Load Swapmagic
    2.Load Zoneloader
    3.Load Backup of "Scarface"
    You can get Zoneloader from this site http://www.eurasia.nu/modules.php?name=Downloads&d_op=search&query=
    You will need to make an account with them but it is free. So there's no worries.
    Make sure that you download the one called zoneloader beta v0.5 (dvd) as this is the one that will work with "Scarface". The other one is for games that are cd based.
    Now that you have downloaded this file you will need to open it with WinRAR. This will give you a 1.5 GB iso file. You will need to burn it to a blank DVD. Now you can load up swapmagic, load up the DVD with Zoneloader burned on it, then Scarface.
    This will not require that you patch the backup of Scarface.
    Hope this was of use to you.
