    hey this toc reduce thing do you need to do it for every game you backup? or is it just for the big games? will kingdom hearts 2 need toc reducing or not

    @khmercrip,

    of course not, the reason u rebuild games are that they are too big to fit on a standard 4.7 gb dvd and don't have a dual layered dvd burner. and using that definition, u should be able to conclude that no, kingdom hearts 2 doesn't need to be rebuilt, because it is only 3.69 gb

    well,actually,the main reason you rebuild games is because those that use swapmagic disks,cant load games that have a higher TOC than the swapmagic dvd.
    thats why you either rebuild or do a TOC refresh with another original game

    to check the disk size,you just put it in the drive and right click on it,and check it from there
    anything around 4.37gb is likely to need a rebuild,and a simple search of these forums,or ps2nfo.com will tell you what games need this

    oh i get it now any games with a toc higher then swap magic wont work so you gotta make it smaller than the swap magic toc for it to boot right? lol never knew that ae thanx alot :)
    as for some games i heard that for some games swap magic cant boot you gotta use the cogswaploader method? will swap magic 3.8 boot the exploit installer disk and i was wondering whats better to boot backups with swap magic or cogswap loader exploit?
    thanx :)
