    Hello,

    I'm a little confused with this site. Does this site list non working games for Swap Magic 2.0 only? How can I tell the difference between the ones that work with 3.3 but not 2.0? Because I have Swap Magic 3.3 and Harry Potter: Prisoner Of Azkaban is listed and i was able to back it up and boot it no problem. However, I tried to back up mercenaries and ended up making 2 coasters before patching it with dvdrick's patch. Does any one know where I can get a list of games that do not work with Swap Magic 3.3 and possible patches?

    Thanks,
    Sean

    I'm not sure if that list is one of games that are supposed to need patches, or what it is, but from that list I have personally backed up:

    Need For Speed Underground 2
    Metal Gear Solid 3
    GTA:SA
    Spider-Man 2

    so I'm not sure what the deal is. [bold]Hursty[/bold] are those supposed to be games that need patches or don't work or what? I'm just curious so maybe I can avoid some coasters myself.

    ok here's some answers.
    swapmagicfix.com lists games that you need DVD Loader or CD Loader to load. This was of course before swap magic 3.3 came out and eliminated that need because it will load most games without it.
    PAL & NTSC are disc formats that are set up for different types of TV sets.
    NTSC is for the US and PAL is for European.
    the signal for the two is just slightly different causing PAL games to flip out or be black & white on an NTSC system and the reverse. And games i know i need patching are Bloodrayne 2, Mercenaries, Shadows of Rome. those are the only one's i have personally tries that needed them.
