    Hi everyone, i backed up sonic mega collection plus and was wondering why it won't play. When i use swap magic i get a blue outline like the rest of all my back up'd games so i would assume it should work. So i wait for like 10 seconds and nothing happens. anyone happen to know why? thanks in advance

    don't own this game but here's two possibility's for you, the game might need to use cd/dvd loader or the toc might be to big for swapmagic, how big is the game

    from that toc it's a possibility that it's to big for swapmagic to boot on it's own try using cd/dvd loader/cogswap and toc refresh with a large file orignal ps2 dvd game e.g. gta: vice city, manhunt,fifa 2005,chaos legion, devil may cry etc.
