Help teaching me how to work cheats with pcsx2? Whats CRC?
#1
Hello,

I am completely confused what CRC is, im wanting to get gameshark codes for Persona 3 FES and i keep hearing about pnatch files and i found one in the cheats folder. I have read a couple of threads but i still cannot find what my CRC or whatever is. So... Is this a complicated process? If it helps knowing i am using a NTSC version not the PAL version of the game.

Thanks.

When you run the game, check pcsx2 log window for "game CRC = 0x....." well that's your game CRC.
Pnach file must be named gameCRC.pnach and it must have codes for your game version, it probably already exist in the overgrown cheat thread;3, best to search it through google:
Code:

and here you have a persona 3 FES US pnach;]

Thanks i found my CRC. Only problem now is that i cannot find the codes in the forums even through the search threads box. Would it be simple to create my own pnatch file if i just had the Gameshark codes and the CRC?

My apologies for the late response, trying to cram all this new info into my brain in a short period of time doesnt work all that good...

So. I found a member who created a pnatch file for Persona 3 FES. So... Do i just replace it with the pnatch file already in my folder?

My version is NTSC, and is all i have to do is just enable cheats after replacing the file? It sounds too simple to be true.
I know my CRC and i visited Saiki's "Learn how to make your own cheats" thread but im still very confused.

I appreciate any help.

You can just add the patch... lines in the existing pnach file (is it a cheats file?) or just replace it. Then yes you just enable cheats.

Ok i have finally figured it all out. Finding out how to switch the txt extension back to the .pnach file was a real @!%#$ for me.

Awesome,thanks.
