Warriors series code conversions request
#1
Anyone know how to convert a code from NTSC to PAL? I want to have these unlock all characters in Musou Mode codes from NTSC to PAL:

Samurai Warriors 2 XL SLUS 217.26;1
2029c414 24030001

Dynasty Warriors 5 XL SLUS 212.99
201ABED4 24020001

You need to find the exactly same cheat for both versions. Money cheat, healt cheat or something like that normally work nicely. You can find those on typical ps2 cheat websites normally given as gameshark, xploder, codebreaker or whatever codes.

Then you need to ensure that the cheats are decrypted/raw. To decrypt cheats you either need omnicomvert or the tool provided by vsub in this forum.

After you ensured both cheats are raw and the same you need to subtract the addresses from each other (thats always the first 8-hex-number-tuple). Keep in mind that these are hex numbers and you need a hex calculator as the windows inbuilt one in programming mode. The result is the address shift betwen regions.

Add or subtract this value from the code address you would like to convert to port the cheat to your region.


Just to make it clear again: the first 8 numbers are the address you want to port. The second 8 numbers are the value that you should nit change.

Keep in mind that that method doesn't always work. Sometimes particular codes are in different areas of the memory, resulting in different offset differences.

An 'Unlock all character codes' might have a completely different offset difference compared to money/health codes. (Ran into this issue multiple times with some games).

But it's worth a shot either way.

Unfortunately that is true and i guess it is here indeed the case. But better trying than giving up without.

In the other thread i wrote 'possibly convertable'. Maybe i should've repeated that here.

So do I add 3C93E16A (Samurai Warriors 2 XL NTSC pnach) to 2029c414?

No. That number is too large. How did you get this number? Everytime i converted cheats the offset was around 20000 (not sure about the number of zeros but i think it is correct.) but that probably highly depends on the game.

That's the CRC of the game lol. Definitely won't work that way. Tongue

Ok step by step. Type into google 'samurai warrior 2 pal cheats'. Look through the results and find a page appearing trustworthy and with a lot of cheats - especially health/musou/money cheats. Keep the page open.
Open new tab. Type into google 'samurai warrior 2 ntsc cheats'. Select at best the same root page as before or another trustworthy page. Find the exactly same cheat on both pages.
Post them here with links to them.

Offset difference of +5A0 between NTSC and PAL.

So for a PAL code, it would be:

2029C414 (NTSC) + 5A0 = 2029C9B4


Final code:
2029C9B4 24030001 PAL code. (Assuming it's the same difference for each code. Give it a test run and see if it works or not)
