Cheat codes not Working need assistance
#1
Greetings Have tried now 2 different games with multiple sources of cheat codes and have failed to get it working, was wondering if someone could assist me or point me to what it is I'm Missing, for the Example I am using Grand Theft Auto: Vice City, ISO NTSC Ripped from Imgburn. The Version of PCSX2 is 1.4.0

Here is my process:

Collect CRC: (From Logs)

Code:
ELF (cdrom0:\SLUS_205.52;1) Game CRC = 0x248E6126, EntryPoint = 0x00100008

create with notepad++: 248E6126.pnach
(In cheats driectory)

Get Codes from here

(M) 
0E3C7DF2 1853E59E
EE8CDC8A BCBBBD9A

Infinite health 
DE8FFFFE F8AEDD4B
DE8FFFFA 68EE9EEB
DE8FFF86 BF899B8B
DE8FFF82 02A99BA7
DE91CA1A C8AC9A43

Max money 
DE4279D2 C19E7B82
DE4279DE C19E7B82


use pcsx2 Cheat Converter to Convert to -->
Code:
patch=1,EE,0E3C7DF2,extended,1853E59E
patch=1,EE,EE8CDC8A,extended,BCBBBD9A
patch=1,EE,DE8FFFFE,extended,F8AEDD4B
patch=1,EE,DE8FFFFA,extended,68EE9EEB
patch=1,EE,DE8FFF86,extended,BF899B8B
patch=1,EE,DE8FFF82,extended,02A99BA7
patch=1,EE,DE91CA1A,extended,C8AC9A43
patch=1,EE,DE4279D2,extended,C19E7B82
patch=1,EE,DE4279DE,extended,C19E7B82


Add and Save File 
pcsx2 -> File -> Enable Cheats
Start the Game:

From the Logs:

Code:
Found Cheats file: '248E6126.pnach'
Loaded 9 Cheats from '248E6126.pnach' at 'F:\HyperSpin\Emulators\PCSX2 1.4.0\cheats'
Overall 9 Cheats loaded

So At this point exactly what is it that I'm doing Wrong?

Thanks!

You need to decrypt/convert them from codebreaker format to raw format.

This is ActionReplay V2 not CodeBreaker

Am i correct using Action Replay codes as I was under the impression that Action Replay & Gameshark were both supported? Or is Action Replay/Codebreaker not?, nm I just checked the Interact GameShark codes, they are the Same as Datel's as I suspected. I think it was the Action Replay Max that was different....

Encrypted codes are not supported,AR,CB,GS and so on,they all must be decrypted if you want to use them in pcsx2.

Check my signature
Code:
//Infinite health
patch=1,EE,200FFF00,extended,3C0542C8
patch=1,EE,200FFF04,extended,AC450368
patch=1,EE,200FFF08,extended,03E00008
patch=1,EE,200FFF0C,extended,46000024
patch=1,EE,202D2CA4,extended,0C03FFC0

patch=1,EE,205C7DDC,extended,05F5E0FF

Thanks for the Response, it is appreciated, though unfortunately does not appear to be a resolution. 

Upon downloading the Omniconvert Utility, setting Input -> Action Replay -> Version 2, and Output -> Unencrypted -> Standard & Setting AR2 Key Code to 1853E59E, I get the Same Output you posted in your response, Use those 2 codes in the pnach file, boot and nothing... I also went through all the steps with a Different Title "Maximo" and got the same results... So Did  the cheat ability get removed from 1.4.0? or was it broken in the newest release? What release are you using that Works?

Sorry I did not look at your first post very well
You have the ntsc version and those codes are for the pal version

That site have codes only for pal games

Have you tried gamehacking.org? The games are listed by region variants and the type of cheat device it's meant for. Then use that given info and convert it into raw codes using omniconvert and optionally, use vsub's tool to create a valid pnach file from the codes.

My tool uses omniconvert when you try to decrypt the codes so you don't need to manually run two programs and copy=>paste cheats
