    Dios Mios Disk Swapping

    Hi, I have heard around the internet that Dios Mios now supports 2 disk swapping. I am using Dios Mios 2.5 and when I downloaded it it was not possible with that version (I think). But now I have heard that version 2.6 supports disk swapping. Here is a quote by somebody that said it works.

    It does. I just played thorugh MGS: Twin Snakes today.

    What you do is convert each disc as you normally would. Than rename the second disc as "disc2.iso," put it in the same folder as disc one. And voila.
    the disc swapping was introduced in 2.6
    Is this true and if it is could somebody help explain how to replace my DM 2.5 with DM 2.6. Thanks


    EDIT: I've also heard that I need to update USBLoader GX. Can someone point me in the direction of that download. Thanks again

    EDIT2: So after a bit more research It would seem that disk swapping only works with Dios Mios Light. I'm using regular Dios Mios V 2.10. Does anybody know if its possible yet to do it with Regular Dios Mios? cause I tried it and it didn't work. Playing from an external USB with USBLoader GX. made 2 folders with Disk Ex and renamed the 2nd iso disk2.iso and put it in the same folder as game.iso. I can play the game but when its time to switch disks it just blackscreens. Its Metal Gear:Twin Snakes I'm trying to get to work

    It should work in DM as well, though I have no way of testing it since I own no dual-disk games.

    If your version of GX works with 2.5, it should work fine with 2.6.

    To install a new version of DM (latest is 2.10, released a few days ago), download the .wad (link to the latest can be found in my signature) and install it with your wad manager of choice (I prefer Wii Mod 3.2, used in Chapter 2 of the Any Wii guide, also in my signature).

    Then prepare both disks using DMToolbox (comes with the DM or DML wad) as you normally would, except rename disk 2's "game.iso" to "disk2.iso" and place it in the same directory as disk 1's "game.iso". on the hard drive or SD card (DM or DML depending).

    Depending on the loader, I've read that you have to press eject to have DM/DML swap it out, or I've heard that it just automatically works. again, I've not had a chance to try this on my own, so I'm just going based on what I've heard people say.
