Hello I have a couple of questions regarding softmodding my PS2. You know, in the time when I actually used my PS2 I was still a kid, I had like 10 games and that was enough for me, but now I want to catch up on some games from the PSX and PS2 library that I missed. I have Swap Magic 3.6 installed in my console currently but the DVD is pretty damaged from the way I...handled it...when I was younger, so I thought it would be good to install Free MCboot since I read some stuff about it and I know that my console is compatible. Sooo...to my questions: PS2 related: 1. As far as I found out my best bet to booting PS2 "backups" would be ESR since USB Advance is too slow, am I right? 2. Would it be possible to use Action Replay codes in PS2 backups, using an iso of AR MAX (pretty sure this is possible, I think I did it once in GTA San Andreas) Now to PSX related stuff: 1. Is it even possible to launch a PSX backup through Free MC boot if I don't have an original PSX disc? (I heard something about disc swapping) 2. If it's not possible with Free MC boot, could I do it with Swap Magic 3.6? 3. Do Gameshark/AR codes work in some way? It would be really great if you could help me, and if all else fails I'll probably emulate the systems on my PC but you know, I have the real system here, so why don't try the real thing?
