Saying no cheats found when pnach name matches CRC
#1
Hi All,

I usually have no issues with this but this one game will not recognize my cheats. All other games work just fine. The pnach file name is EB198738.pnach, it is in the PCSX2\cheats folder and there is no "hidden" .txt extension on the file. Enable cheats is also checked (or else the other games would not have cheats Tongue ). I am at a loss. Is it possible that the CRC is being read incorrectly?

I have listed the front end log if it helps as it has most of my system specs, version of PCSX2, plug-ins used, etc. Any help is appreciated.

Edit:
OK, so if I open PCSX from Windows Explorer, everything works as expected but if I load the iso from command line, it loads no cheats. I am guessing there is a command line option I am unaware of for enabling cheats...anyone?

You sure the cheats aren't disabled in the file directly?:3 Many people who post pnach files(if you downloaded it that is) have some or even all cheats disabled by default(by commenting out the "patch=" line with "//" or anyway else).

Edit: oh lols;P didn't saw your edit. Well commandline is kind of lacking few things, and that's probably "just" a bug.

What is the command line that you use

First, make sure your .pnach file is named "EB198738" without the "0x", otherwise that's a definite no-no.

Second, as said above, make sure you have "Enable Cheats" checked in the pcsx2 window, otherwise it won't work either.

Third, check to see that the .pnach file is in the "Cheats" folder in your PCSX2 root folder in your program files.

And as miseru99 said, if your cheats have "//" in front of them, they won't work.

As an example;

A cheat as it looks when disabled, notice the "//" in front of the "patch=1,EE,..."
Code:
//Infinite HP [3]
//patch=1,EE,200FFF00,extended,2401270F
//patch=1,EE,200FFF04,extended,AC41017C
//patch=1,EE,200FFF08,extended,AC410154

When it's enabled it'll look like this;
Code:
//Infinite HP [3]
patch=1,EE,200FFF00,extended,2401270F
patch=1,EE,200FFF04,extended,AC41017C
patch=1,EE,200FFF08,extended,AC410154

(Don't try using this, it's for FFX-2 Tongue)

The command line, if I am not mistaken, is:
"PCSX2 Path" "path to iso"

When I run the program via windows explorer, then the cheats work so it cannot possibly be the // issue mentioned.

This is a shortcut or bat file with the command line
Check the location where pcsx2 is starting in.

I made a shortcut to pcsx2(without path to the game image)and change the "Start in" location on the shortcut...the result was the same,no cheats for the game on which I have cheats.

Changing the Start in location to the pcsx2 folder made pcsx2 to load the cheats

Thanks for the input!

I am running the command through a custom GUI I wrote in c#. I basically just spawn a process like this:
Process.Start("Path to PCSX2" "Path to iso");

So the starts in option probably will not work for me.

I will try the full boot (Assuming the new process would be "Path to pcsx2" --fullboot "path to iso"

You need to specify the directory from where pcsx2 is started(I don't know how this is done in C# )

The problem is that if you don't do that,pcsx2 tries to load cheats from a cheats folder where your gui program is.If pcsx2 decide to add an option which specify the location of the cheats folder too,this probably will be fixes.

If this can give you an idea,this is how it's done in .bat file
cd /d "the pcsx2 folder location"
pcsx2.exe "full path to the image"

If the pcsx2 folder is in the same drive where the windows is,you don't need the /d parameter

Interesting. You are correct sir and I thank you! This problem is solved!
