Dragon Quest 8 Help With Cheat Needed
#1
Hello

I have Dragon Quest 8 PAL version, and since it's my 3+ playthrough I decided to pop it into emulator and cheat a bit with clear conscience. I'm using these cheats:
Code:

I don't use them all, only a select few but I used the "Have All Main & Key Items In Bag" to check the codes and it works (bam! full bag) so they must be working. But my peeve lies with the "50/50 Chance Of Normal Or Rare Drop" code. I'm not entirely clear on how it's supposed to work. I think it should always give me either normal or rare drop at the end of a battle. But it doesn't do that. So I scoured the internet in search of a cheat that would give me a 100% item drop chance and here's the only one I found: link
I tried to convert the code to pnach type, but I must've done something wrong because it doesn't work either. This is what I got after conversion:
Code:
//100% drop rate
patch=1,EE,20296FB4,extended,10000027
patch=1,EE,20297058,extended,0280102D

Please, if someone has a working code for 100% item drop chance could you post it here? I know I can just use the full bag cheat, but where's the fun in that?

Umm, so does anyone know the 100% drop rate cheat? Or if the 50/50 works, then how is it supposed to work? It feels like the monsters drop items a bit more often, but not always. If I get it right:
- killing a group of monsters gives better odds of item drop
- threatening monsters gives the chance foe each individual monster to drop an item, so if scaring off 8 monsters could potentially give you 8 items
I'd love it if the threat method worked all of the time. Basically the only cheats I use are ultimate alchemy pot and 50/50 Chance Of Normal Or Rare Drop. I don't want to use other cheats because it ruins the experience of the game, and this is IMO the best game on PS2. All I'm doing is help myself a bit so I can finally collect every item/recipe/monster info. Normally you can't get all items without cheating. Well, you can but with the abysmal drop rate getting orichalcums will take eons.

C'mon, anyone? This cheat is driving me crazy. I don't know how to make that 50/50 cheat work anyway.
Do I have to do a full boot? (I always use fast)
Does the cheat become valid only at a certain point in the game? (I'm at Port Prospect ATM)
Is that cheat supposed to make monsters drop items all the time with a 50/50 chance between normal and rare?
That other cheat is for NTSC version and I don't know how to convert it to PAL. I tried but it kinda messes up the game so I did something wrong.

Can someone PLEASE give me an answer? Here's a pic of Yangus to motivate you:
