I am using Swap Magic 3.3 with patched WE8LE and I am having problems getting the game to load. Strangely, the original WE8LE runs fine. When I do get the patched version running the audio cuts in and out during menu selection. During games the crowd chants cut in and out, but the commentary doesn't. The load times between menus and before throw ins, free kicks, corners, etc is also significantly longer. Maybe part of the problem lies in my laser's inability to read the altered files in patched versions. I only draw this speculation because the original game runs fine. Or it could be the differences between the original disk and the Verbatim DVD-Rs I'm using. Weight, layering differences, etc. Which brings me to a question. Which DVD media are you guys using? Specifically, brand and whether it's DVD-R/RW or DVD+R/RW. Since using a mod chip is not an option, I am going to experiment with different media to see if that works. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
