How pnach files work
notice that in all codes you used the token "word" which is not necessarily wrong, but some values suggest it should be byte or short.

let's understand the meaning of these three

0 = "byte" means only the 2 right most digits are actually pushed into the address. All the leading zeroes are left alone.
1= "short" means the four right digits will be pushed into the address field, even if they are zeroes.
2= "word" means all those digits will be pushed into the address field, including the zeroes.

the point being if you push a "word" where it should be "byte" it corrupts all the boundary, probably resetting adjacent fields, what can lead to issues that may present itself immediately or later, when will be hard to trace it's cause.

To be sure, verify the original codes and use the correct token according with the values above...

Better yet, change all parameters to "extended" and keep the address exactly how it presents itself on the original code (after converted to raw, of course).
Man, you must rename your pnach file to be the same as that "CRC" value.

so it's short or byte now how do i change it to that with out messing it up?
Just look onto the original codes, change everything to "extended" and keep those digits exactly as they are in the original. It's the easier way.

Notice there is no way to grant those codes in your post are not indeed words, they could be (although probably not).
The inverse is easy to pinpoint, if the value is, for example: 0000A710 and the token is "byte", the code is certainly wrong (It is probably short) because only the 10 would be pushed into the memory and the A7 go waste.

Excuse me, new guy here..
I'd like to ask you about pnach-ing in PCSX2 ver. 0.9.8...

Just how do we insert the file into the emulator?

I'm playing an old version of Monster Hunter games, [Monster Hunter 1]..

I did create a pnach file, but in previous version of PCSX2 (0.9.7 exactly)..

It works well with the cheats and so on, but I really wondering if I can do the same with 0.9.8? No "Cheats" or "Patches" folder in there, so I totally screwed this one...

Help me, please..

And thanks in advance Laugh
0.9.8 does have a cheats folder....except if you used the installer and PCSX2 relocated those folders in your My Documents/PCSX2 folder.

Oh, right! I just missed the folder MUCH earlier..

Now I found it, the "cheats" folder..

So, I only need to copy said pnach file to designated folder (cheat folder)?

That's the only thing I need to figure out..

@Bositman: U're the MAN!.. Thanks... Wink
Sorry to say Fuma, Bosit isn't a man, mainly since Angels are sexless (A) Tongue
Well, jokes aside, but you're right... LOL...
thanks, I just refreshed myself after reading your comment.. Wink
LOL after reading that. Tongue2 Now lets forget about it. Tongue2
Yes, Sir...
BTW, this is what I saved during the finding of "cheats" folder in pcsx2 0.9.8 ....
