Fixing unplayable games
(05-06-2018, 10:35 AM)prafull Wrote: Here is the latest patch for Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban [SLES 52440]

I have tested this for something like 4 hours. It seems pretty reliable so far. I played first 15 minutes of the game and it worked fine.

Other versions of the game can easily be patched based on this (send me elf file and I can do it too).


1. Need to use the attached PCSX2 exe with your existing PCSX2 folder.
2. Need to paste the attached patch file in cheats folder.
3. Need to enable EE timing hack.
4. It works most reliably with speedhacks turned off. Some speedhacks may not work (I know vu cycle stealing and EE timing -3 definitely don't work).
5. Need to use same gsdx settings as HP Chamber of Secrets i.e. Large Frame Buffer, Frame Buffer Conversion and Basic Mip mapping.

My hero!! I just registered here to say thanks. After hours trying it I finally ran the game.

Don't forget to copy the "pnach" in your user/documents/Pcsx2/cheat folder x)

How can I port over a thread I made last week about Gran Turismo 4 Japanese SCPS-17001 and see what can be done to fix the crashes?

Not really unplayable as software mode seems to be fine, but anyway. Edit: software mode is also affected without patch. 
Star Wars: The Force Unleashed (SLES-54658)
Fix for graphical issues, QTE events, subtitles. Work in hardware, and software mode. Allow to remove CRC hack.


Patch can be easily ported to other versions of games, but i don't own them. 
I created this patch today for PS3, and noticed that pcsx2 have the same issue. Tested, and it work. 

Btw. is the same issue / solution like here (the same game engine) :
DOA 2: Hardcore

comment=Make game work using EE recompiler, and without EE cache.
