    Hey all.

    I'm trying to stuff together all I know into a newbie FAQ/Guide, and I was just wondering if there are ANY cheat devices that work after they are backed up, with a modded PS2. Also if anyone is really experienced with the SMD side of those house, I'd be happy to pass the guide on to your for SMD common questions and answers.

    Thanks in Advance.
    can.

    Well through some practice (and a lot of CDs) I've learned somethings..

    I can get the game to load with GS 4.1 (backup) but it takes some steps.

    I have to start by letting my PS2 boot a Swap Magic 3.0 CD disc, then I use Gauntlet Legends CD (PS2 Game) for a TOC, then I boot the GS using the SMD 3.0 mentioned above, then I select codes, start game, (insert backup game) instead of hitting X and letting the GS pull the cd back in, I hit the eject button and it closes itself, then after the CD starts to spin, I hit X to load the game.. 90% of the time the games load.. but I cant quite get the codes to work as they should, more often then not, they hang the game once actual gameplay begins.

    Phew...

    Hey all.. took a minute but I figured this out.

    Now I have a DMS3 but this should work with modded consoles.

    Burn a copy of SM 3.0 Cd version, swap with a higher TOC disc, I used gaunt. legends. Then swap with GS 4.1, once you do that.. hit x to boot. Now select your codes, then, when you hit x to load the game through GS instead on hitting x again to close the tray.. push the eject button on the ps2.. let the game spin a sec, then hit x.. the game will load, and the cheats will work.

    Best of luck.
