Description

Game Name?

Tales of Symphonia, Resident Evil 4, Metal Gear Solid, Twin Snakes among other 2 disc games.

What's the problem? Describe what went wrong.

You'd think that disc swapping on netplay wouldn't work. You'd be wrong. You can actually swap discs on netplay and remain in sync if you're insane.

1: Set the buffer to 0
2: Pause every player
3: Each player swaps discs to the new disc
4: Each player unpauses
5: Return buffer to normal

By doing these steps, you can actually swap discs on netplay while remaining in sync. Since the basic action works on netplay, it should be possible to automate it. It should actually just work period like inputs if we were smart, but, I'm not even asking for that.

Sounds reasonable to me if the user is able to do it.

Automated Disc Swapping makes using this on netplay just fine.

Custom swapping still requires the steps provided.
