Gran Turismo 3 A-Spec and chests
#1
I want to play GT3 A-spec with a cheat that would give me a low license time would give me a black screen after the warning that comes after the "Playstation 2" text. Thing is, I wanted to test if just having cheats in general would give me the black screen so I used a max cash cheat and the game was fine, no black screen and the opening cut scene that wasn't playing played. So is it the license cheat that is causing this? I get my cheats from GameHacking.org, I've used their site to get my PS2 cheats and they work pretty reliably

The license cheat does this: Conditional - Executes the next line if the value at 0x1FFF734 is greater than 0x5000
                                        RAM Write - Constantly writes 0x00005000 to 0x1FFF734.

And the cash cheat does this: RAM Write - Constantly writes 0xD4A50FFF to 0x958EF8.  
                                           RAM Write - Constantly writes 0x000000E8 to 0x958EFC.

Also, there weren't any red text being spammed in the console with the license time cheat on

i only haved the time freeze on license exam during it stops by 6~9ish very well try this on my attachment.

if it not working for you,you might have the game ID of PBPX-95503 henced my cheat will not work.

PBPX-95503 and SCUS-97102 is in a single CRC.

if the console still spammed red text,all you have to do is Shutdown--->boot ISO again,this will eliminate the red txt "tlb misses" effect.

Yeah, the game has the PBPX thing, if so do I search for another ISO of GT3 if I want to use the license time cheat?

instead of doing that grab my savefile

start fresh with all licenses required
readable for both SLUS and PBPX IDs of GT3

I'm guessing the save file would also include all the reward cars from the license test?

Disregard that, I fired the game with the save file and there were already some cars, presumably from the license tests, I now have another question. Is it possible to sort of "inject" the GT3 save into my existing memory card, I don't want to keep switching between memory cars in order to play GT3

Ah yeah, I can just rename the GT3 save to Mcd002 and save that into main Mcd001 that I always use. Cheers, thanks for the help!

hello, I allow myself to intervene because recently I tested and played this game and I encountered the same problem, then I found solutions.
I take for example Low License Times by Codejunkies
D1FFF734 00305000
21FFF734 00005000
                     
to avoid pcsx2 blocking with black screen you must:
when starting pcsx2
- in the system tab you must not check "enable cheat codes"
- it's only when you get to the permits interface that you can pause the game and then check "enable cheat codes", when you have completed all the permits, or if you leave the permits section, before you need to re-pause and then disable cheat codes.
- another solution that I have chosen is to transform it into a Freeze Timer L3/R3 using the joker command D02EA812 and you can activate the cheat codes when starting pcsx2.
//Freeze Timer L3 R3
patch=1,EE,D02EA812,extended,0000FFFD
patch=1,EE,21FFF734,extended,00000000
patch=1,EE,D02EA812,extended,0000FFFB
patch=1,EE,21FFF734,extended,0000004B

here, now I am looking for the codes of the NTSC-jap version SCPS-150.09
if you have any info thank you
