    Compiled this list from whatever I could find recently.

    SLUS20265 is 100% confirmed to work on actual hardware. The rest have been tested in PCSX2 Emulator. If you've done one of these on actual hardware, do say so :)

    Replace the listed elf with a copy of uLaunch.elf/wLaunch.elf or similar. Update size and make new ISO. Burn this. Swap your retail disc with burned. (Sensor Blocking required) Trigger elf launch. Soft Mod Success :)

    In my experience the only game that works 100% with every Ps2 is 007 AuF (replacing the elf with Ulaunchelf).
    i.e. MGS3 doesn't work with my 2 slim Ps2.

    Replacing the elf with cogswap instead will Always work. So in case of multiple elf game (DEMO discs are the best), you need just one dvd/cd. Otherwise you need 2 (one with the id replaced with cogswap, the other with Ule).

    Another thing that affect the result is the Ulaunchelf version. Older revs are better generally (I think the one I used was 4.11), newer versions gave a black screen often and willingly.

    For most of these games I believe it would need to be the original pressings, and not any 'Greatest Hits' re-releases. I'll be AUF'ing my PS2 Slim when it arrives. Was advertised as a 77XXX Series.

    I can test some of these in an Emulator, don't have many DVDR's lying around these days...

    Yes it could matter the version too. However I've the first MGS3 release and it doesn't works with my Ps2s, and if you search on the web you'll see it's about 50/50 (it works for some people, doesn't works for Others). 007 AuF instead, I never hear about a failing.

    I don't know if the Ule version matters with AuF, but to be sure, I suggest you to use a old version (like 4.11/4.12).

    This is the good thing of cogswap, if you have a CD game, you need at max 2 CDs.

    The only method of swap, and thats a classic one, has always been Agent Under Fire, the very 1st release, not the Platinum or Greatest Hits for the US, and this its the only game, as far as i am aware, that truly works!

    MGS3 doesn't work, takes you straight to the RSOD, even with the 1st release.

    MGS 3 works for many people. There are videos on YT with both Ps2 slim and Ps2 fat users. I still don't know why it works with some and doesn't with Others(some HW or SF thing related to the optical drive I think…).

    Using cogswap instead just works using any game with all Ps2 models. The only minus is that, in case of one elf only games (games that only have the ID elf), you have to burn 2 discs: one with the ID replaced with cogswap and the other with Ule (however if you have a CD game, the thing is cheap enough).

    There is also quite old (back up) swap trick list here:
    https://web.archive.org/web/20140325153639/http://bootleg.sksapps.com/tutorials/fmcb/swap.php.

    BTW theoretically md5sum for org, platinum version, Greatest Hits of Agent Under Fire is the same:
    File integrity should not change... so all versions should work.

    The same thing can be with other titles... but I suggest at least to check it at redump to 100% sure:
    http://redump.org/discs/system/ps2/.

    As for Metal Gear Solid 3:

    Just to see what would happen. I made PS3 PS2 Classics PKG out of PS2 ISO w\ wLE swapped in place.

    Game functions as it would until wLE would launch. Then black screen.

    Tested 007: AUF, Max Payne, True Crime - Streets of LA
