[Enhancement] PCSX2 GUI (Windows)
#31
Core GUI
1 - No opinion.
2 - What gregory wrote on this issue makes perfect sense to me.
3 - I don't think it should be removed. I sometimes like playing with those hacks disabled.

GSdx
I don't care much on the layout used, but I would like Linux and Windows to use the same or very similar layouts. And a side issue - for options with 3 states, I would prefer a combobox to be used instead of a 3-state checkbox. IMO the options would be more self-explanatory that way.

If we're enhancing the GUI.... I have a suggestion that's not related to the Core GUI or GSdx, but still somewhat major.

It has to do with cheats. If possible, can we add the option to the GUI where it will read cheat codes from the pnach files, and you can simply enable/disable cheats from the GUI with one checkbox.

Rather than having to edit 321312 lines for one code (patch=1, to //patch=1 to disable it) you could settle it with one checkbox. Dolphin has a similar method, so do various other emulators.

Although I don't use cheats, I think this is a really good idea.

if you've got a patch with 321321 lines you have a problem Tongue In that scenario it will be quicker for you to do a ctrl+f search down the file and disable it than scroll down a massive list of tick boxes.

Somewhat offtopic, but does setting patch to other values (i.e. patch=0) change anything. IIRC when I was working on the JakX patch it didn't seem to make an obvious effect.

Uhm there's only about a million codes that have multiple lines. Tongue

Code:
// Max Stats
patch=1,EE,205C872C,extended,000003E7
patch=1,EE,205C8730,extended,000003E7
patch=1,EE,205C8734,extended,03E703E7
patch=1,EE,205C873C,extended,03E703E7
patch=1,EE,205C8740,extended,03E703E7
patch=1,EE,205C8744,extended,03E703E7
patch=1,EE,205C8748,extended,03E703E7


^If I want to disable that code, I'll have to adjust each line there one by one to //patch=1,EE.

And that's just a very minor code. There's loads more complex codes that you may want to turn off from time to time.

I'd rather go through a list of 'codes' that I can turn off with one click than modify it like this each time.


This is what I would it would look like:

@Ge-Force: patch=0 makes the code run at the startup of a game and then won't be written to the game's RAM anymore after that. patch=1 constantly writes to the RAM of the game.

Hmm that looks like they are grabbing codes directly from a database, thats something different from pnach files like we have, that's pulling hacks straight off the web (which as you know wont work with pcsx2)

but we might be able to make it work kind of like that, but we would have to set a standard for patch construction which would be a pain ;p

I don't think it's done like that.

Dolphin uses an INI system for it's games(like we do our GameDB) and they are stored there.

Example INI:
Code:
# GM4P01 - Mario Kart: Double Dash!!

[OnLoad]
# Add memory patches to be loaded once on boot here.

[OnFrame]
# Add memory patches to be applied every frame here.

[ActionReplay]
# Add action replay cheats here.

There are two options here:
Use the current pnaches as is(the requirements are already strict enough that we could do this, and current patches would work, just extract the relevant data on load)

or

Someone could write a small app to convert many separate PNACH to a database. The database would contain: CRC of game, Name of Game, Name of individual codes, and addresses and values

Either is feasible. The former requires more time on the PCSX2 side, the later requires time on the pnach side of things.

I could easily write a small program to convert as many pnach as you like to a massive database, but someone would have to provide the pnach as as I said, I don't use cheats.

So that was like i was suggesting, we'd have to insist patches are formatted in a certain way so it can be interpreted in the GUI.
