Cheats not working, odd message.
#1
Tried using cheat codes for Grandia II and received the following message in my log:

# Initialize memory (rev:3.17, ctm:393Mhz, cpuclk:295Mhz )
(EE pc:9FC42548) TLB Miss, addr=0x50401874 [load]
(EE pc:9FC42548) TLB Miss, addr=0x50401874 [store]
(EE pc:9FC42548) TLB Miss, addr=0x5040187c [load]
(EE pc:9FC42548) TLB Miss, addr=0x5040187c [store]
(EE pc:9FC42548) TLB Miss, addr=0x501694f8 [load]
(EE pc:9FC42548) TLB Miss, addr=0x501694f8 [store]

It 'finds' the codes when the game is running but they simply don't work.

File is correct- 160076FE.pnach

Found Cheats file: '160076FE.pnach'
comment: Grandia II (NTSC-U) (SLUS-20194) Widescreen Hack (16:9)
Loaded 285 Cheats from '160076FE.pnach' at 'C:\Users\x\Documents\PCSX2\cheats'
Overall 285 Cheats loaded

Example of the codes i'm using:

Infinite Special Coins

Infinite Magic Coins

Any recommendation where I'm going wrong with this? I like the game but i was halfway through and my pcsx2 completely reset itself, settings, saves, etc. So i want to get back there without having to waste time leveling up and whatnot.

And yes I have enable cheats on Smile

TLB miss typically means something within emulation has gone horribly wrong, and is a very, very common symptom of bad cheats. Can you verify that at the same point in the game, without cheats enabled, there is no TLB miss? If so you're sitting on a pile of cheats and somewhere inside there, one of, if not multiple, are bad. I see 200 some so that may be rough to sort out.

Did you update your PCSX2 version or something? Maybe you changed a folder path and so it's just not pointing to your old memory card folder or something? Depending on what you did this may be fixable if you want to change gears to that instead.
Problems? Check out the development builds for the latest updates.

It's definitely the cheats, i have no doubt about that, i don't get any error message when running the game normally.. but i've pulled cheats from a few different sources trying a couple at a time and it always reliably gives me this message.. 

I have pcsx2 v1.4.0.. haven't updated it and actually just redownloaded it the other day as I haven't played it in over a year, still had my bios in there just no system for some reason. my most recent coding attempt- I had grabbed the cheat folder from PapaStanimus on youtube, his website is like gamerebel.net or something.. followed all his directions of converting code + master file.. just can not get any of it to work.. Depressing part is i used to be able to do all this back in Dos like 20 years ago lol i wish i kept up with all these things but i'm so far out of my league here

Even when I tried with the only cheats enabled was the 4 I posted above, it still gives me the same error messages TLB miss and it's the same codes found on multiple sources.

Usually, you don't need the master code with PCSX2.

Try these.

Code:
// Max/Infinite Gold
patch=1,EE,213493A4,extended,05F5E0FF

// Max/Infinite Special Coins
patch=1,EE,213493A8,extended,05F5E0FF

// Max/Infinite Magic Coins
patch=1,EE,213493AC,extended,05F5E0FF

Also, make sure you comment out lines that aren't related to codes with //. (e.g. code names, etc) as shown above.
Intel Core i5-4670K @ 3.40GHz | 16GB (2x8GB) DDR3-1866 G.SKILL Sniper Series
AMD Radeon R9 280 @ 3 GB | 120GB SSD | Windows 7 Ultimate x64 (SP1)

And one last thing, make sure you are starting your game normally, without using save states. Since save states essentially forcefully change the game's memory state, they will wipe or force cheats as well. Whatever the status of the cheats was when the state was made, that will be the status after loading the state, regardless of if you have cheats loaded or not.
