Well, I don't think it's a NEW protection, some of the older games (CD and DVD alike) don't work correctly with Swap Magic either (Baldur's Gate, Sponge Bob, Max Payne, etc) I think it is because thereare some kinds of file systems in the games structure that SM just doesn't agree with. Not sure what it is though. Look for Swap Magic Version 3.0 (No release date yet) to fix most of these type of problems. Also note that the same games that the earlier Magic chips had problems with are the same games that Swap Magic has trouble with. Strange coincidence? Or similar programming?

Well, basically the theory is that it is in the file structure of the game, so, changing this would not be possible. It is a lot more likely to, instead, change the Swap Magic programming.

Clock Tower 3 won't load with Swap Magic?

I'll look into that, as I planned on getting a DVD-r of that game, cause am at the end of Res Evil Code V-X.
