    I've been playing this game - burned to a GCOS-MultiDisc - for two or three days now, and I've now come to the place where I have to switch discs. However, no matter what I do, I can't get it to work. Disc 2 burned alone to a DVD+RW? Nope. Disc 1 & 2 burned alone to two DVD+RWs? Nope. Disc 1 burned to a DVD+RW and Disc 2 burned to a DVD-R? Nope. I always get the same error: "An Error has occured. Please turn off the NINTENDO GAMECUBE and see the instruction manual for further help." (or something like that).

    I really want to continue playing this, I'm now going to see if I find the original somewhere cheap, but if I can't: Why does this not work? Is there anything I'm missing?

    (Oh and yes, all discs boot fine by themselves. It's the disc switching from 1 to 2 or vice versa that doesn't work.)

    EDIT: Hmm, removing the disc at a point where I normally shouldn't switch discs and then reinserting the disc results in the same error. Very strange. I'll try to see what happens in the same situations using my original Tales of Symphonia...

    EDIT2: Nope, my original ToS works perfectly fine changing discs mid-game. ...Very strange. Any ideas?

    Uhh, thats because once you're switching games, you have to go through the encryption check. And since you're playing yarr'd games, they don't pass and cause that error.

    If I understand correctly it is not possible to play any multi-disc GC games on a chipped Wii no matter how the discs are prepared? I was unaware of this before now [​IMG] Glad I didn't start playing MGS!

    Thats how I think it works. Some games might not have the check on the second disk, but I have had trouble with this on multi-disk games on PS1.

    It works perfectly fine at the disc swap point on my Wii w/ Wiikey.

    You could just borrow or go out and rent a copy, get past the spot, save and then continue playing on your pirated copy.

    It might have helped to tell us what chip you have.

    hey pikachu025 renting games in europe isn't that hard. if your flag is true, in vienna there are approximately 10 videorentals where you can borrow wii and gc games. outside from vienna things might look not so good of course!

    so, after a YEAR, is it possible to play multi disc games with Wiikey clones? like when both discs are burnt into one disc with GCOS generated image.

    that question is asked for RE rebirth, Zero and MGS:TS.

    No. The game won't recognize the second disc that way. Burn disc 2 to it's own disc. Disc 1 can be on a gcos multidisc though.
