Fixing unplayable games
Dropship: United Peace Force
Fix texturing on ground/floor, and silence "Gif Unit - GS packet size exceeded VU memory size!" errors.
Game require skipMpeg hack to bypass initial campaign loading, and software GS mode to fix half screen issue. 
Patch not work with old savestates, so you need to reload save from memory card. Then you can save by savestate. Otherwise patch will just do nothing.


Edit: Patches are not required if both InstantVU1/MTVU are turned off.

Time Crisis 2 , 3 (maybe others)
Patch to ignore sce1394SbEui64 error, and allow game boot without changing EE cyclerate.
This patch is required only for some bios/rom versions (for example EU 1.90, US 2.00), but is safe to use on all bios/rom versions.
I don't know what cause this error, only 2 possible options seems to be:
1. FW null answer with wrong data for consoles without ilink
2. Some function on EE want data faster than IOP can answer, and that cause loop that don't allow to get futher.
Option 2 seems to be more probable, because previous fix was to use -3 EE cyclerate.

Time Crisis 2
CRC = D5D560FF , 30fabe51

Time Crisis 3

Code:
patch=1,IOP,A0840,word,0
Edit: Time Crisis patches are no longer required since v1.7.0-dev-469 release.

Code:
patch=1,EE,202245b0,word,03e00008 //disable overlay effect/speed fix
patch=1,EE,202245b4,word,00000000
patch=1,EE,201fccd0,word,03e00008
patch=1,EE,201fccd4,word,00000000
Disables the line overlay effect to fix speed problems. This patch also keeps the original blur that that CRC hack disables without impacting performance. The effect that is disabled is not rendered in hardware mode (even without CRC hack).

Code:
// Game expect sceCdStatPause at some point, but for some reason value is never set.
// So instead, set expected value to be sceCdStatSpin, to allow further modules loading.
// Game require EE clamping set to Extra + Preserve Sign to not freeze
// (gameDB also suggest VU clamp mode = 1, but that's pcsx2 default..)

Can you post a savestate right before the problem using latest pcsx2 dev build?

Patch for Winning Eleven 8 (SCCS_400.22) - Fix initial hang.
Game seems to use special CDVDMAN version that do something that pcsx2 can't handle yet, patch is applying changes directly to IOPRP image, so no way to pnach it. For now is only way to make game work until it gonna be resolved on pcsx2. 
To use patch, unpack .zip, and use tool like Xdelta UI to apply .xdelta patch to game image.

Fix hang at default SPU cycle delay value. Game seems to have bugged streaming module. Patch change param passed to sceSdGetAddr. 
Seems to work fine, but i didn't tested that for long time. 
Edit: Not required on latest dev build.

any fix for Syphon Filter The Omega Strain with codebreaker?

I'd select the cheat i want, hit swab disc and start the game--I would select the level and weapons and hit square to start a mission, then it will freeze, I can still hear the music playing in the background but it doesn’t load or anything

It worked great for me, I was very happy! Hopefully it works for you too. Especially the repairs of Dead or Alive 2 - Hardcore convinced me!
