    Confirmed.

    ZoneLoader used with Terminator3: Redemption and SC:PT and works like a charm. SlimLine + SM3.3 and SM3.6.

    Thanks Guys!

    I seem to be the only one who can't get it to work... probably my burner.

    now it loads baldurs gate: dark alliance with the sm, zoneloader then backup sequence. It eliminates the additional swap needed after the dvdloader. Very useful program and loads wicked fast.

    im having a little trouble getting this to work so i have a few questions...


    do you have to use dvd decrypter to get this to work?

    are you supposed to burn just the rar file? i tried to extract it, but then nothing will recognize it as an image. it also comes out strangely small when you extract the rar (like 137 KB)... so i just burned the rar file with alcohol 120%...then it came out looking ok. its size is 1.16 GB. am i doing this right? it wouldnt boot up at all with swap magic 2.0 dvd...which is weird cuz dvd loader boots up. i am using taiyo yuden 8x dvd-r (burning at 2x) and a slimline pioneer burner...

    please! any help would be greatly appreciated ..!

    You should be able to extract the RAR archives using [Register or Login to view links] just fine. I've included the WinRAR report of each archive (CD and DVD) below. DVD Decrypter should be able to record the ISO just fine for the DVD. Alcohol 120% or Nero can burn the ISO for the CD.

    *sigh*...another coaster...i tried it with dvd decryptor instead of alcohol - same result. i guess its time to give up now lol. i just think its weird that the iso is a rar file at the same time (O.o????)...anywayzz...thanks for your help ROOK, i really appreciate it. the winrar reports were helpful, so i think my ps2 is probably the problem.

    Thank you to whoever wrote ZoneLoader - I now have Yu Yu Hakusho Dark Tournament working for the first time in three months. Downloaded the rar and unpacked it then burned the .iso file to DVD using Nero. Insert ZoneLoader disk after Swap Magic 3.3 DVD and then the Yu Yu disk - works perfectly. DOESN'T WORK WITH SWAP MAGIC 3.6 - YOU MUST USE 3.3

    Siamesegato,

    It sounds like you're burning the rar file to DVD - you need to extract it first using WinRar which you can download from [Register or Login to view links] - select Winrar 3.51 and save it to your C drive, then run it and you should have a new program WinRAR. Use it to unpack the zoneloader.rar file and you'll end up with 4 files, one of which is zoneloader.iso - it's this file you need to burn to the DVD. It's an image so you have to burn it as such and not just burn the file.

    Hope this helps.

    I would like to say that I just got Champions: Return to Arms and I tried patching it and it still didn't work with my swap magic v3.3 and pstwo. I just used Zoneloader and it loaded fine without a patch.

    Yeah, the patch for Return to Arms didn't do anything for v7+, I think; you still needed to use the DVDloader. Glad to hear the Zoneloader works too, since the DVDloader is kinda annoying to use (too many swaps).

    Bombastic works with the Zoneloader and SM 3.3, too; didn't work previously with a straight swap.
