i never liked Utopia. it didn't work on vga and it failed on me too. try codebreaker. its a far better import loader imo.

I agree.

DC-X is also good.

you do not need a memory card for codebreaker to boot games. if you want to make new codes and save them you will need one. this is for things like playing PSO on private servers. also i am not sure that gameshark will even boot imports. i know for sure it wont boot games into VGA. and yes you will need the gameshark memory card for gameshark to work.

as for codebreaker, you can find it on the web and burn it. it wont boot backup copies of imports but it will work just fine with original GD-Roms.

You would have been better off just burning a copy of the game per your region, instead of ordering stuff all or burning something to play this one single game.

I don't support turning your entire library into backup's, but it is a good way to test and see if a game is worth buying, or a single nights play and spending one blank disc apposed to spending $ & waiting for something that may or may not work be shipped?
