    So I've read alot about DIOS MIOS, but never tested it. I want to play Metal Gear Solid: Twin Snakes, but I've read that you can't get past the first disc since you need to change to disc 2.

    Isn't there any way to bypass this though? I know other Multi-disc games that let's you save before the change, so you can turn of the console, change disc and then turn it on to load that save. Isn't this possible in Twin Snakes? Or is there any other workaround?

    I believe the only workaround is using Devolution, as saving before the disc swap and continuing is impossible.

    There are different way:

    Retail disc: of course.
    Burnt disc with a modchip : same as above.
    Devolution : reading backup only, needing the retail disc only once (after verification you are good to go without them).
    Swiss : Play game backup from SD Gecko or a special IDE converter.
    Dolphin : Emulator on PC.
    DIOS MIOS (Lite) : There's a test method (but I don't know anyone succeding it), where you can extract both disc in the same folder and hope that the game will try loading the files without asking to switch disc.

    In all cases, you are free to switch to any method at anytime.
    There are tools to extract/insert/convert memory card files format too.

    You can play with DIOS MIOS (Lite) and use one of the above method to do the swap when required, then go back to your favorite loader.

    Is the original GameCube disc a must? My second Twin Snakes disc is scratched and can't be read.

    Also, my Wii is a 25th Anniversary red Wii, so it won't play disc backups.
