    i was wondering if anyone knew if you can use a gameshark 2(dvd swap style) with backed up games.

    i put in the GS cd, loaded the cheats, and then loaded the game. the first time it said it wont boot then i tried it again and it loads but the cheats arent working.

    any ideas?

    I just posted this for someone else, here ya go:

    Cheats usually don't load from backed up cheat discs. You will need to get a "CDLoader" or "DVDLoader" disc. You can get the image from PS2ownz.com. once that disc is made onto a CD-R disc now the order is:

    1. Insert Swapmagic CD
    2. Use Fliptop for backed up cheat disc
    3. choose your cheats, when prompted to insert game, re-insert the Swapmagic CD
    4. Now use the fliptop to insert the "CDLoader" disc you made
    5. When that disc loads, press eject and once again load the swapmagic CD disc. Press X once.
    6. A screen that says something to the effect of "now use swap method" will pop up, NOW put in your backed up CD-R game.

    [bold]If your cheat disc is original and NOT a back up[/bold] Then start from step 3

    [bold]If your game is a DVD back up[/bold]
    then starting from step 3 use Swapmagic DVD in place of the Swapmagic CD. AND you will need to download the Image of "DVDLoader". Which is the same as CDLoader but the image is ready to be burnt to a DVD-R. You would then use that in place of CDLoader.

    This may seem like a lot and it is, but your codes will load. I have done it this way for a while with no problems. Except my backed up cheat disc is on a DVD and I use DVDLoader instead or the CD version. Plus any games that I may want that are on a CD on back them up to DVD. Less strain on the laser and faster load times. Hope this helps
