can someone give its definition and possibly an example. thanks.
hehe,TOC is basically the size of the game file
so what does the TOC read mean in this:
post by nrk4594: Boot a copy of Swap Magic 3. After it loads, eject it. Insert the PAL game. Let it read the new TOC. Select NTSC on screen, then press the SQUARE BUTTON for special boot.
what does this mean?
Table of Contents of the game I believe or its instructions.
its just a term used for the size of the file
right....i will try and explain
swapmagic disc's have a toc of approx 4.7 gb bytes,thats why any games bigger than 4.7gb wont work
the toc is very important
as on the cd swapmagic they have a toc of around 700mb
thats why they are used for cd based games
basically when you put the swapmagic dvd in,it is telling the ps2 that this game has a toc of 4.7gb
so all games with a toc lower than this will work
dont read into it to much
some ps2 games have a lot of dummy files in them
therefore the "toc is higher" than 4.7 gb..follow?
they wont work with swapmagic as swapmagic dvd can only boot games with a toc lower than 4.7gb........follow?
thats why they have to be removed, for in order to bring the file size down,so they can work with swapmagic
Slide-Tool and Swap Magic Frequently Asked Questions
Q. How does Slide-Tool perform on original DVD imports?
A. The success rate for original DVD import games, is about the same as with DVD-R backups. New games in the Dual Layer DVD-9 format might not work because of the extremely big TOC (table of content) size around 7-9 GB. Swap Magic Boot Discs only have a TOC size of around 4.35GB. But a backup of a Dual Layer game applied with a patch might work.
so does the SwapMagic have to be version 3.3 or can it be 2 to boot games with TOC under 4.7 giggs like UEFA CL?
swapmagic 3.3 is just an updated version of previous swapmagic
it has all the fixes built in it
as far as i am aware the game you are talking about does not require cd/dvd loader
so version 2 should work
