Waht?? Swap magic load games?

Swap magic is only a cheat device for the games. It is not an emu, is only like a sub program in the ps2.

Of course you have to change the config for every game even using swapmagic.

There is no miracle to make the emu to work at full speed and with all the games....don't try....(like the ms-dos guy...)

Correction: Swap Magic is NOT a cheat device, it's a disc that's sole purpose is to be able to boot back up's in a real PS2, it doesn't do anything else. And since the emulator doesn't do a check for bad sectors on a disc, using it in PCSX2 is pretty much pointless. It won't help any games get further than they normally would.

but you think my ideia is possible, using swap magic in the emulator?

Swap magic just bypasses the BIOS check. Nothing is truly emulated with it.
It does not meerly bypass it. It passes the check correctly like a normal ps2 disc, then stops the ps2 drive after the check so you can load a backup.

I can assure you that it works, however it is pointless. Note the screenshot (and it's name.:p)

even if it works, it's pointless.

The same like booting swapmagic with swapmagic.
errr... in this case it's not that much pointless... when you only have swap magic for example 2.2 and only a backup of swap magic 3.3 which has better compatibility... that goes for real PS2 of course... :)

... and it doesn't void your warranty (not that Sony ever helped anyone with their warranty) or potentially tap away at your PS2's durability (even the topnotch ones do it).
