    I'm trying to install FMCB on my memory card with the help of uLaunch. I have a PS2 slim with no modchip, and don't have swap magic and i'm trying the swap trick.
    Apparently it only work with games that have .ELF files like a game of 007 that i read about on other forums about the swap trick.
    I don't have that game, but when i was looking at games i have i discovered that one of them has an .ELF file. The name of the game is "Junior Board Games" and the .ELF that is in the cd game is JUNIOR.ELF.

    Is anyone familiar with this game and/or know how to do the swap trick in order to trigger uLaunch.elf?

    The basic concept is to create a backup of your game, replace the elf with your desired homebrew (like wLaunchELF) using a tool that will guarantee not moving files around, burning the modified disc, starting the original and swapping it at any time before the separate executable is loaded...

    Without knowing that game, there may be 2 main problems:
    1- the separate executable may smaller than your replacement
    2- you probably don't know when that file is loaded and run - if it ever is at all!

    When you put the game in, it loads, shows the intros of the devs or whatever and then loads the menu, the menu just has the five board games you want to play and nothing else, browse the menu to choose one game and it loads and then it plays the board game.
    My theory is that the JUNIOR.ELF is used to load the board games, like how the driving.elf of the 007 game is used to load a driving level.

    I created the iso backup of the game and im know gonna figure out how to replace the elf

    Check out any guide for 007 agent under fire, the basic file replacement process and tools are going to be the same (except of course for the original file to replace)

    It also seems that a known working alternative to 007 is pretty much any online game (by replacing the network setup tool)!
