Placed .pnach file in "Cheats" folder in > Computer > LDisk(CSmile > Emulator
Run PCSX2 shortcut on Desktop

Oh wow that was fast, thanx man. I thought that might have been the problem but I can't locate the CRC in the emulog so I just grabbed that CRC from the forums and crossed my fingers. lol

Oh and real quick I have read most of your post's including helpful comments from Bositman and Shadow Lady so a "thank you" to you all. Each one of you are very informative and knowledgeable in all posts and threads. Also, just read your earlier post on "cheating for dummies" very informative but sadly didn't help.

Okay so as most can probably already tell there is no CRC line, i tried re-imaging the ISO tried mounting the ISO on a V-drive and today I'm going to get the game in question back from my friend and try again I suppose, any ideas in the meantime of what might be wrong will be helpful.

Okay, got the game in the drive and changed the .pnach file accordingly
Code:
gametitle= Final Fantasy XII [SLUS_209.63] (U)
comment=8x Exp Gained (After Battle)
//patch=1,EE,203B3D34,word,00000000
//patch=1,EE,203B3EE4,word,0002A8C0

comment=4x LP Gained (After Battle)
//patch=1,EE,203B404C,word,00031080
//patch=1,EE,203B4054,word,00031080
Now not even sure the code will work now since the address had changed and the CRC is still not coming up in the emulog so ran into a brick wall there as well....here is the emulog in question with the actual game in the D: drive not a V-drive.

Oh and not sure if this is right but I pulled this CRC off the net and this is what I got for mine 0779FDB < doubt this is right though.

Thanx man for helping still, now if it helps you I've noticed it says ELF file does not have a path..could that have something to do with it?
