Notes: Well after all the blood,sweat and years it's finally here. Action Replay MAX EVO, built to
work with Swap Magic! Up until now no cheat devices were able to use codes through Swap Magic. The
previous release of Action Replay MAX would lock up at the menu screen and the freeze. Now thank's
to me and 2 other people, I bring you a loadable version of AR! This is guaranteed to boot all your
PS2 NTSC DVD back ups WITH codes and work 100% with Swap Magic. Also note that this is not the regular
AR MAX, but AR MAX EVO, which has so many fucking amazing things on it. Here's the link from the
official site which has explains everything this bad boy can do, just copy and paste it into your

Directions: The way AR MAX EVO is able to boot your DVD back ups is by combining ôCD Loaderö with the
AR. This is mainly intended for Swap Magic users, people with mod-chips can just download
AR MAX EVO and burn it, however if you donÆt know where to get it, then just follow this tutorial
up to step 3.
1. Burn the ISO to either CD or DVD, either one will work, however I am 100% sure it will work with
2. After you loaded the game you will see a black screen with white writing. Move down and highlight the part
that says "RESET IOP." Using your D-pad set it to "ALWAYS" so in the end it will say "RESET IOP:ALWAYS"
This MUST be done. Now press "X" and you will see this screen. " border="0" alt="ARMAX_EVO_02 01 2009 NTSC preview 2"/>" border="0" alt="ARMAX_EVO_02 01 2009 NTSC preview 1"/>" border="0" alt="ARMAX_EVO_02 01 2009 NTSC preview 0"/>
3. From this screen press "X" again and you will be taken to a screen that contains 8 Menu items, the first
one says AR MAX EVO and it will be flashing, press X and now Action Replay MAX EVO will load. It may seem
like nothing is happening, but just wait it takes about 20 seconds to boot up. If you have a Network Adaptor
it will ask you if want to check for updates. Just select "NO" for now. Now you have your AR MAX EVO fully
booted up and you can mess around with it alittle to get the hang of it :)
4. The background screen will tell you to change the disk, BUT DON'T! Select "Expert Mode" to see all the codes.
Choose a game and the codes you want to use or add a game if you like. When your done you will see a screen
that says "Make sure your game disk is inside" but whatever you do, DO NOT EJECT THE DISK, this will prevent
the codes from working on your back up. Just follow the procedure and start up the game.
5. Now you will be taken back to the screen that first came up when you started the disk. However, there is no
need to change the IOP here, unless it's for a certain fix from SwapMagicFix.com, just press "X" again. Now
your back to this screen again. " border="0" alt="ARMAX_EVO_02 01 2009 NTSC preview 2"/>" border="0" alt="ARMAX_EVO_02 01 2009 NTSC preview 1"/>" border="0" alt="ARMAX_EVO_02 01 2009 NTSC preview 0"/> There are different steps you
have to take depending on whether your game is CD or DVD so look below.
CD: EJECT the disk from your PS2 and insert the official Swap Magic CD or an official retail CD game. Wait
for the screen to change back to this one. " border="0" alt="ARMAX_EVO_02 01 2009 NTSC preview 2"/>" border="0" alt="ARMAX_EVO_02 01 2009 NTSC preview 1"/>" border="0" alt="ARMAX_EVO_02 01 2009 NTSC preview 0"/> Now just SWAP
the game with your CD back up using either the slide card or Flip Top Lid, press X to load and your DONE!
The codes should now work.
DVD:EJECT the disk from your PS2 and insert the official Swap Magic DVD. Wait for the screen to change back
to this one. " border="0" alt="ARMAX_EVO_02 01 2009 NTSC preview 2"/>" border="0" alt="ARMAX_EVO_02 01 2009 NTSC preview 1"/>" border="0" alt="ARMAX_EVO_02 01 2009 NTSC preview 0"/> Now press "X" and you should see THIS screen
Now just SWAP the SM disk with your DVD back up using
either the Slide Card or Flip Top Lid and press "X" to load it and your DONE! Your back up DVD should now
work with the codes you selected in Action Replay.
PLEASE READ: I am 100% sure that codes on DVD back ups will work, I have not tried any CD back ups, but I'm pretty
sure it does. Also when you using the Memory Max Manager, DO NOT USE IT TO DELETE OR MOVE SAVE FILES,
as this will delete EVERYTHING on your memory card. This is not an error on me, but actually DATEL's
screw up. You can still use Memory Max to crush files, which saves a ton of space. If you want to
move or delete files on your mem cards just use the PS2 browser.
