I am trying to boot backups of ps2 backup games with my gameshark2 version 2.3 on a playstation v7 using the swip card method. i did this method. PS2 without modchip, Using GS/AR/Swap Magic with Swipe/Slide Card or Flip Top, PS2 DVD backup booting 1. Have AR/GS dongle in a memory card slot (if needed by your disc) 2. Power on your PS2 3. Insert AR/GS/SM* disc, press Reset 4. At the AR2/GS2 menu, press EJECT 5. Swap AR/GS disc for an Original-TOC-DVD* and wait 10 seconds 6. Select "AR/GS Codes" 7. Highlight "Add new code" and press X to get to the next screen 8. Press X three times. You will see "Updating code list please wait" each time) 9. Press "Start" on controller 10. Select "Without codes", press X 11. Press X again, you will see "Updating code list please wait" 12. You will hear Original DVD stop spinning 13. You will have about 10 seconds to do the following 2 steps 14. Immediately after disc stops spinning open Flip Top or use Swipe/Slide Card to open PS2 tray 15. Close Flip top or Use Swipe/Slide Card to close PS2 tray then press X 16. Screen will change and game will now boot * Note - For Swap Magic just insert the DVD boot disc, press Reset and when "Insert Disc" is shown on screen use Swipe/Slide Card for swap and follow on screen directions. * Note - "Original-TOC-DVD" is an original DVD that is a larger file size than the backup * Note - For a shortcut make a few “Add new codes”, or use any title you know you don’t need (you can always reset the dongle) and after step 6 just highlight one of the “newly” added codes or unnecessary ones and press square to delete it, then proceed on with step 9. *Important* You have to have the correct version of AR/GS in order to boot backups When i put in the backup cd it will go to a black screen and not load any further, either that or the screen will go to please insert a playstation or playstion 2 game. if anyone can help plz reply.
