Swap Magic Sucks

    I dont know why you people are so obsessed over swap magic. Most of the time it freezes or doesnt load when you swap. The gameshark method is the best way to go. It will never freeze and will load any backup or import including ps1 games which swap magic can't do. The shark is clearly better than magic bottomline.

    The reason it freezes is because if you're using the fliptop cover and don't set the disc in flatit won't load. Took me a while to find that out. There is an extra little ridge that it gets stuck on. It's always the user never the machine. lol

    I don't use the flip top loader. I can't remember what mod chip I have, but its the one that connects inline with the ribbon cable for the power/reset buttons

    ^6 months swap magic still works great!

    Im sure user error plays a part in your troubles as
    i have never had any with swap magic disks.

    But if you want to force swap with gs thats on you,
    But dont come here telling people its better because
    you can work the s.m. discs properly.

    GS are pretty great for old PS2 consoles but for us that have the new slimline PStwo, the SM works flawless.

    why some people here especially newbies, dont know wtf there talking about, like AGENTNEO!!!!!!!!
    if you dont know newbie(AGENTNEO), that SMD are the updated version of gs2 or ar2, thats been updated to fixed games that can't be played on gs2 or ar2 when booting back ups.....

    get it..?

    yeah i agree to you that SMD are sucks.....
    and i know that modchip is best to use booting back ups.... ;)

    Nah, Swap Magic's great. It's a cheap alternative to modchipping, it's relatively painless, it's the easiest to install, and it has an amazingly high compatability rate.

    I've yet to have a single problem with it.

    And since we're discussing things that suck : What's with the ads in the threads? Weird. I guess they thought that ads on the top of every page wasn't enough.

    there is a topic started by drD in the news and announcements forum. the ads are just a test for a few months to see how they work, they are not permanent. I use swap magic in conjuction with a solderless mod chip and its a great combo.

    i agree, close this down. swap magic works just fine. I have been using it for a while now, both 2.0 and 3.0 and have never had a problem.
    I also have a flip top and have never had it freeze on me, your disc must be bad.

    Ty for your opinions ppl but how about trying out gameshark and comparing the two. And like I said before swap cant do ps1 backups.
