Maybe I might go ArMax method since I'm pretty sure Ill not find the right version of gameshark in stores. So any version of ArMax works or do I need to hunt a special version?
I bought the ArMax! There goes $40... Its worth it!
Cool , ModSlayer. I am sure you will like it.
I like it, but it has to media player, I checked on the Gamestop website, it said it had it, but when I bought it today, it didn't... And whenever i go the the Memory Manager thing the screen is flickering and phasing, I can still do the stuff but its kinds hard and annoying...
I was bored and just searching old threads on the forum and came across this one for Gameshark.
It may be of help to you.
And this one.
Thanks but now I need ArMax methods, ones that don't use media player...
Sorry I don't know of any, you need to have the media player to be able to load cdloader.elf in order to play the backup.
YAY! Finnaly, i exchanged for another copy or ArMax to solve the scrolling prob. I got to FINNALY play FinalFantasyX today after about 2 weeks of exploiting! Yay me, and smoky(for his/her help!)
I am a "her", and thats great you got it exchanged and its working out for you.
Ok I can get FFX to boot anymore, whats wrong now. I only got it to boot once with cogswap i tried again after school today but its not working, I'm using the same Toc disk as yesterday(GTA:SanAndreas) I know its smaller than FFX but it worked...Somehow, but when I tried it today it didn't. I tried using SW:BattleFront II, its bigger then FFX but it when I click X when I swap it doesn't go to the Black screen and boot-up.
I am not sure... maybe try using cdloader instead.
Nope still no good...
Are you also using codes with this game when you boot up.
Ok once Ar Max has loaded up fully, take out your memory card, and then try the swap.
If it works then put the memory card back in once the game has loaded.
I'm not using cheats, cheating on RPGs kills em'!
Ok then, its not that then. Did you try the memory card removal then after AR Max has loaded, and just it when it says loading game remove the memory card.
I'm not using the MediaPlayer from ArMax to boot games, I'm using the independence exploit. Should I remove the MemCard when CDLauncher loads up or when Cogswap turns on?
There are so many people with different solutions to getting this too work on the FAT PS2.
You might have to read through some of the threads for an idea.
Is this the method you are using
Hope some of those threads help you. Not sure if you need a bigger TOC disk, as a lot of those guys just use the GTA also.
Well I had some free time and decided to use my mc exploit on my V7 Ps2 this morning.
I booted it up, went to filebrowser, then chose mass/ and loaded up cogswaploader.elf from my usb drive.
Once loaded I pressed eject on the PS2, and put in GTA San Andreas
Waited a sec, then the screen said "Use Cogswap"
I then opened my fliptop, or for you would use the slide tool
and swapped the GTA disc for my Final Fantasy X-2 and it booted up right away.
Do you load cogswap from your mc or a usb drive?
Another suggestion to rule out bad media, is have you tried any other backups?
I load cogswap from my USBdrive I got with ArMax. I'm getting other games to back up. Which do you recommend that are good games?
