Trying to get cheats working for Xenosaga Ep 1
#1
Hey all,

I'm fairly new to this and the cheat system is a little mystifying to me. I made a pnach file from my CRC and thought I had everything set up well but I still can't get them working. 

Game: Xenosaga - Episode I - Der Wille zur Macht (NTSC-U)

Here's the contents of the pnach file (6D1276AB.pnach), which is in my Cheats folder in program files where PCSX2 is installed:

patch=1,EE,202442B8,extended,10620038

I'm using the save anywhere cheat as a test to see if the file is working or not, but I'm still not able to do it. I've enabled cheats in the program, then booted from a save file to make sure I wasn't loading a save state where cheats were disabled. 

Any help appreciated!

Sorry if I wan't clear, I did put the correct CRC in there. It's 6D1276AB.pnach from the CRC I got in the console window, 0x6D1276AB

After starting the game with those cheats,do you see in the consoles title how many of them are enabled
And also
1.Your codes look like codebreaker v1 encrypted(except maybe the last one),so you have to decrypt them
2.I'm not sure FFFE actually means select+circle(I can't check right now)

FFFE is L2.

Select + Circle = 1FEDE ==> FEDF should be the correct one.

I do not. Should it appear up top with the stuff like "Slot: 0 Speed: 100%" etc?
1. I thought I decrypted them through Omniconvert but it's possible I did it wrong, I'll redo it decrypring from codebreaker v1 and see what happens

Thanks!


EDIT: Negative on all fronts. Decrypted to the following, I still don't see any cheats enabled up top and I don't think the cheats work, though the only one I can test at the moment is the save anywhere (I swear the CRC's correct and the .pnach is in Program files\PCSX2 1.4.0\Cheats).

Does the game title have to be exact or is that just for reference? It should be the same as the .iso I think. Does the .iso need to be in a specific folder? I'm running it from a separate one.

I tried the save code but went back to the old one with Ryudo's change because I decrypted it from another source and it came out the same. It should be correctly decrypted... maybe

If you installed in program files, the cheat should be in your user folder/pcsx2/cheats not in program files. The console log will show you where PCSX2 is looking for the cheat, so consult it

i'll give him the *.pnach file on my attachment and let him edit it on "notepad"

You were right! Partially. I ***** up and accidentally made a .txt that was just titled 6D1276AB.pnach. I turned extensions on in folder options and fixed that. It loads the .pnach correctly now! ....and crashes PCSX2. Like immediately. So I'm assuming my codes aren't quite right. I commented out the "save anywhere" code since I'm not 100% on it, but the EP/XP/etx codes are still crashing the game.

After the .pnach is loaded I get a ton of these errors with the underlined portion changing : (EE pc:80006CC0) TLB Miss, addr=0xa597f16 [store]

Then a ton of these errors, again with the underlined portion changing: Vif1: Unknown VifCmd! [27]

So it's the code I'm assuming. My .pnach is still what I showed up above, with the save anywhere code commented out. Thanks for your .pnach example but I'm interested in different codes. Any ideas?

EDIT: I did try the infinite money code from your file and that one DOES work. So my codes are just *****, I'll try finding and converting them again...
