Default PS2 games that need attention! (modded)

sponsored links

 
Hello again,
I was wondering if anybody knew of any games already released that require special attention or patches to work for swap magic 3.3 or 2.0? Just wondering, so people could post there findings here so there isnt a bunch of coasters being made. Hopefully this will help a bunch of people and wont cluter the forum!!!!

I know for a fact that these games need attention! People should name the game,type of mod needed, and what version of Swapmagic can be used!

Mercenaries-SM3.3 and 2.0
Bloodrayne 2-SM3.3
NBA Street Vol.3-SM3.3
Shadow of Rome-SM3.3 and 2.0
Hitman Contracts-SM2.0 no mod needed for SM3.3

All of these need patches or stripped and reworked with isobuster and cdvdgen! Hopefully this will help others and others can post and help others!

Default MERCENARIES: Quoted from other post! Thank them!

For Mercenaries, if you own the title and are trying to backup the DVD so you dont have to scratch the original then you need to rebuild it just in "similar fashion" as the sample below. You dont need to change any files, just run isobuster and cd/dvd generator 1.20 or 1.50 (if you can find 1.50) then dos and burn.

THESE INSTRUCTIONS ARE FOR COPYING STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT FROM BARRY MAHOGENYA FROM AN EARLIER THREAD. YOU MUST HAVE DVD Decrypter, CDVDGEN, AND ISOBUSTER INSTALLED ON YOUR COMPUTER.

NOTE: THIS IS TALKING ABOUT STAR WARS SO RESPECTIVELY THE FILE NAMES ARE STAR.WHATEVER SO NAME YOUR FILE AS YOU WILL. AFTER RUNNING CD/DVD GENERATOR CHECK YOUR C: DRIVE TO SEE HOW MANY DIFFERENT FILES IT CREATED. WHEN YOU RUN DOS TO COPY AND ADD THE FILES TOGETHER, THEN ADD ALL OF THOSE FILES ON C: THAT WERE THERE. DONT NECESSARILY COPY WORD FOR WORD UNLESS YOU NEED A COASTER.

1) COPY THE PS2 GAME DVD TO YOUR HARD DRIVE AS AN ISO IMAGE.
a)OPEN DVD Decrypter.
b)IN THE DESTINATION AREA, CLICK ON THE FOLDER ICON TO CHOOSE BOTH A NAME AND A STORAGE LOCATION FOR THE ISO IMAGE.
c)CLICK ON MODE > ISO > READ.
d)CLICK ON THE DVD ICON TO START THE PROCESS.
e)WAIT UNTIL THE PROCESS IS FINISHED THEN CLOSE DECRYPTER AND GO TO STEP 2.

2) EXTRACT THE FILES FROM THE ISO IMAGE.
a) CREATE A NEW FOLDER ON YOUR HARD DRIVE TO STORE THE
EXTRACTED FILES.
b) OPEN ISO BUSTER AND CLICK ON FILE > OPEN IMAGE FILE.
c) NAVIGATE TO THE ISO FILE CREATED IN STEP 1 AND CLICK ON “OPEN”.
d) HOLD THE CONTROL KEY ON YOUR KEYBOARD AND LEFT CLICK
EVERY FILE AND FOLDER IN THE LIST.
e) ONCE ALL THE FILES ARE HIGHLIGHTED, RIGHT CLICK ON ONE OF THEM AND CLICK ON “EXTRACT OBJECTS”.
f) NAVIGATE TO THE NEW FOLDER THAT YOU CREATED ON YOUR
HARD DRIVE AND CLICK “OK”.
g) WAIT FOR THE PROCESS TO FINISH THEN CLOSE ISOBUSTER.

3) CONVERT THE EXTRACTED FILES INTO 2 BIN FILES.

a) OPEN CDVDGEN.
b) SELECT “CREATE NEW PROJECT” AND THEN SELECT “DVD-ROM
MASTER DISC”. DRAG CDVDGEN TO THE LEFT SIDE OF YOUR
SCREEN.
c) NAVIGATE TO THE FOLDER THAT YOU CREATED ON YOUR HARD
DRIVE BACK IN STEP 2 AND OPEN IT ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF YOUR SCREEN.
d) SET THE WIDTH OF THAT WINDOW SO THAT IT IS ONLY 1 FILE WIDE. THIS WILL PLACE THE FILES INTO THE SAME ORDER AS THEY WERE ON THE GAME DISK BUT YOU SHOULD CHECK THEM FOR CORRECT ORDER JUST IN CASE.
e) CLICK ON EDIT > SELECT ALL.
f) DRAG ALL THE FILES INTO THE RIGHT SIDE OF CDVDGEN.
g) LOOK FOR A SLUS OR SLES FILE AND WRITE DOWN THE FULL NAME AND THEN CLICK ON THE “VOLUME” TAB IN CDVDGEN.
h)TYPE SLUS OR SLES (WHICHEVER YOUR FILE NAME IS) INTO THE 1ST BOX NEAR "DISC NAME"
i) TYPE ALL OF THE NUMBERS FROM YOUR FILE NAME, WITHOUT THE PERIOD, INTO THE 2ND BOX.
j) TYPE PLAYSTATION FOR THE PRODUCER NAME AND SELECT THE APPROPRIATE LICENSE AREA.
k)CLICK ON "REC...".
l)SELECT YOUR DESIRED STORAGE LOCATION AND NAME THE FILE STAR.IML
m)YOU WILL GET 2 ERRORS, JUST CLICK OK FOR BOTH.
n)THE RECORDING SCREEN WILL POP UP, CLICK ON FILE > EXPORT IMAGE AND SAVE IT ON ONE OF YOUR HARD DRIVES (NOT IN A FOLDER) NAME IT STAR.LST
o) WHEN IT'S FINISHED, YOU WILL HAVE 2 FILES NAMED STAR.000 AND STAR.001
p)CLOSE CDVDGEN AND GO TO STEP 4.

4) MERGE THE .000 AND .001 FILES INTO A SINGLE ISO IMAGE.
THE EASIEST WAY TO MERGE THE FILES IS FROM A COMMAND SCREEN.
YOU WON'T HAVE TO INSTALL AN EXTRA PROGRAM THAT MAY NEED
EXTRA FILES TO WORK AND COME ON, ADMIT IT, DOS IS SO MUCH FUN!!
a)CLICK THE WINDOWS START BUTTON AND CLICK ON RUN.
b)TYPE CMD IN THE BOX AND HIT ENTER.
c)CHANGE THE DIRECTORY TO MATCH WHERE YOUR STAR.000 AND STAR.001
FILES ARE STORED.
EXAMPLE- IF THEY ARE ON THE C DRIVE, TYPE CD C:\ AND HIT ENTER.
IF THEY ARE ON ANOTHER DRIVE, TYPE THE DRIVE LETTER WITH A COLON AND HIT ENTER.
d)ONCE YOU HAVE THE CORRECT DIRECTORY-
TYPE COPY/B STAR.000 + STAR.001 STAR.ISO AND THEN HIT ENTER.
e)WHEN IT'S FINISHED YOU WILL HAVE A NEW ISO IMAGE NAMED STAR.ISO THAT YOU CAN NOW BURN IN STEP 5.

5) BURN THE NEW ISO IMAGE ONTO A BLANK DVD.
USE YOUR FAVORITE DVD BURNING UTILITY TO BURN IT AT THE
SLOWEST SPEED.

Thank you BARRY and Braun008!!!!!

Default BLOODRAYNE 2: Quote from other post!

Use the same procedure as above for Bloodrayne 2;

For Bloodrayne 2 , if you own the title and are trying to backup the DVD so you dont have to scratch the original then need to run decrypter then isobuster leaving out the garbage files. You will know they are garbage b/c they are named garbage. Use notebook files in place of those word for word including the file type. After that place files in exact order that they were originally in, and run cd/dvd generator then dos for your iso image. If you dont know how to do this then look below for a sample of rebuilding.

Would like to THANK Braun008 for the helpful info!!!!!!!!!!

Default SHADOW OF ROME: Quoted from ealier thread!

Now for Shadow of Rome; is the same process as the first two but the only difference is that the images needed to be insatlled in a different order!

Yeah, the same is for the US version. Use isobuster but dont extract the dummy file. Instead make a notebook file with exactly the same name. Then when rebuilding put the files exactly in this order in CD/DVD GEN:

image0
modules
image1
image2
system.cnf
dummy.bin
sles_529.50 (or the slus file for US)

Use dos after that to make into iso= working game

THANKS again Braun008!!!!

Default NBA street vol.3

For NBA Street VOL3 all you have to do is run isobuster and then put the files into CD/DVD GEN with the same order that they started in, after that rebuild through dos to create a new iso. Burn to DVD = working copy. There you go.

You wont have to rename files through notebook for NBA Street 3 like you had to do on bloodrayne 2. Follow the rest of the sample from the starwars game, at the top!

Thank Braun008!!!!
