Default Knife Swap Boot Disk - Please answer! :)

sponsored links

My AR2 finally reached its end today - I used it to its maximum, its surface was covered in scratches and I had to boot it several times before it got to the menu. Now it has a crack and no longer reads.

That means I need a new CD-R boot disk..

What would you recommend?

I wouldn't mind the DVD-R disk coming with it, but if I went for Swap Magic, it would mean my PAL/NTSC selector CD-Rs would no longer work.

I also read about a new DVD boot disk coming out? Did this ever happen?

But my main priority is the cd-r one, recommendations please.

The zonelaoder project is delayed until wintertime. Swap magic disks are great but do have issues booting certain backups, you can get around that if you use cdloader in conjunction with the swap magics.

Do some searching on the net, some people still carry some AR v2.22 discs out there, these still boot backups or try **********, i'm sure you'll find an AR2 disc out there.

Not if it is actually cracked like he states though....

Not a good idea to put a cracked disc in any kind of player.. if it breaks up it could possibly destroy the drive it was in!
