Valkyrie Profile 2 - Silmeria Freeze after applying cheat
#1
Big issues right here. So I applied a short code of pnach ( It is just 3 line of codes ) and the code worked. Afterward, I inserted 4 more code and saved it.

Now, whenever I getting to a battle, the battle will freeze. Yes, whole screen stopped emulating. I tried to reload save file, remove pnach file and even disable cheat in PCSX2 menu, but no avail.

I using the code from codetwink.

Also worth to mention: I have a backup save file prior to cheating.

i think you need to add a "SET" patch to by-pass VP2's gameguard(Anti-cheat)
try this one i already tested

tallbender are you SURE that by using this "Ignore GameGuard" and any cheat you want(or at least those that you posted),the game won't freeze later on(for example in chapter 5 in Valhalla battles).Did you played the whole game after using those cheats?

#5
The above "set" code was just the master code for the game from codetwink.com converted to RAW. And all that goes does is make the game freeze at the end of the battle instead of the beginning of the battle. So it doesn't work to stop the game from freezing for me.

My game started freezing in battle directly after I did a 50k crystals after battle code. When all I used was the sell 1 item, get max oth code, the game didn't freeze and ran fine. So I guess its just don't use any codes that effect battles. Also I couldn't find any codes that modify crystals other than the after battle codes. Does anyone know of an "all sealstones 1 crystal to buy" or release a sealstone and get max crystals code? Or something similar that doesn't require using in battle.

This game is over 5 years old and nobody has figured out a way around this yet? Also booting up any codes via codebreaker V10 just froze the game up immediately, and I had to make a pnach file to use any cheats on this game with PCSX2 v 0.9.8.

I'm requesting a special game fix for VP2 that ignores this dumb anti-cheat thing, or whatever.

So I repeat do NOT use any cheats that modify things in or after battle in any way, and cheats like max oth after selling 1 item are ok. Unless someone actually made a master/set code that is guaranteed to work no matter what.


***edit I'm not sure why what I did worked, but it seems to have worked.

I put these 2 codes in here on top of the set code.

// enable
patch=1,EE,F0121500,extended,00121503


//sell items to gain more square+right=on,op off

patch=1,EE,D01CA1DC,extended,00007FDF
patch=1,EE,2030D190,extended,00461021
patch=1,EE,D01CA1DC,extended,00007F7F
patch=1,EE,2030D190,extended,00461023

Then I deleted the memory card with the corrupted VP2 files, then I loaded a save state, toggle cheats on. The I loaded the game got in a battle and it doesn't freeze anymore. I'm not sure why that worked, but it seems to have fixed my in battle freezing problems. Although I haven't tried making a hard save again and reloading the game from the save with no cheats, nor have I seen any more cutscenes yet.

#6
This code is working
//Restore a seal stone to max out crystals
patch=1,EE,D049A844,extended,000000FF
patch=1,EE,2049A844,extended,24030000

After I got 99999 crystals I save the game and disable the cheats(I enable the cheat before the third boss battle,get the 99999 crystal=>save the game to the memory card and restart pcsx2 with cheats disabled)
I played the whole game with this save and I didn't encounter any problems(from the beginning of the game till the end of the bonus dungeon).

Also about money,I use different approach.
By creating cheat that set the item from which I can get a lot of money to 99.I sell 98 of it,exit the sell screen and enter it again(the item is 99 again).

Here are a few codes I've tried that are guaranteed to work and not crash your game, but only if you don't have the cheats active in battles or cutscenes. Basically you make a hard save prior to cheats, be sure to backup on another memory card. Load the game from the save with the cheats applied, do whatever you need to do, then go back and make another hard save, then EXIT the emulator, and reload the game with the cheats inactive. Enabling/disabling cheats while the game is running doesn't work, and I found out the hard way. You need a fresh boot for each enable/disable of the cheats.


// enable (for both below codes)
patch=1,EE,F0121500,extended,00121503

//sell items to gain more square+right=on, square + left=off (Very important you toggle this off with square + left before you save, or it will freeze)

patch=1,EE,D01CA1DC,extended,00007FDF
patch=1,EE,2030D190,extended,00461021
patch=1,EE,D01CA1DC,extended,00007F7F
patch=1,EE,2030D190,extended,00461023

//return sealstone for max crystals (this one is tricky because you need to make sure you avoid battles while active. Use a ton of save states and reload if you get in a fight by mistake)
patch=1,EE,D049A844,extended,000000FF
patch=1,EE,2049A844,extended,24030000


------------------------------------------------------



comment=max oth
// buy 1 item for max oth.
patch=1,EE,E0021026,extended,00496D9C
patch=1,EE,20496DA0,extended,3C0205F5
patch=1,EE,20496DA8,extended,3442E0FF

With these 3 codes you should be able to safely do whatever you need, you can duplicate gold eggs, or etc and XP items for XP/stats if you want.

The max oth code doesn't need an enable code and works just by itself. I would enable this code once, get max oth, then disable it permanently. (not like you would ever use it all anyway)

Also DO NOT USE the code floating around that says it ignores gameguard, that code will corrupt your saves, guaranteed, and I've tried it. Contrary to my above post, the ignore game guard doesn't work, and only made the game crash prior to exiting an area. I also tried that code on a clean file, and it corrupted it.

Do not use any codes that affect battle in any way or it will crash your game eventually, guaranteed. Also view menu for oth/crystals will also crash your game, don't use those either.

This basically sums up how to cheat in VP2 without screwing your game up. I made it past valhalla so I know this method works. I haven't tested with codebreaker, and this is only for using pnach files with codes in RAW format. CB or ARMAX might very well screw your game up anyway.

Or just find a save point that have restore point near it(the save point before almost any boss battle have a restore point near it),then restart the emulator with the cheat enabled,restore any crystal and save to the memory card.
#9
does NTSC codes work for PAL version of the game ?
#10
I highly doubt it.
