CheatDevice

Well said *MURDOC*... It says use at your own risk (god knows what stupid things you are doing anyway as it works perfectly for me)...

 

With software that says use at your own risk a sensible person would backup their version of DevHook and their VCS savegames before installing...

Well, cheatdevice has screwed up my MS and my progress on GTA VCS. My progress has gone to 0.0 and does not rise and now my PC can't read my MS any more after installing the cheatdevice.

 

I don't have a clue about the progress, i never used any cheats except spawning vehicles... Looks like I'll have to format my MS and loose all my save data etc.. sad.gif

Wait, you probably don't have to format your MS! Do chkdsk /f X: where X: is your memory stick drive letter.

 

The PC caches your changes to the memory stick and doesn't write them out until several seconds later (like 10 or 15 seconds). Even though it says it already finished doing your command, you have to wait for it to flush the cache. If you don't, you will keep getting your memory stick corrupted all the time. You can fix it with chkdsk and try again.

 

I use this unmount.exe to force windows to flush the cache. The command line to use is:

 

unmount -d -e X:

 

The progress 0.0 may be from spawning vehicles. When you spawn, you're using one of the games button cheats and it hurts your criminal rating.

quote from frimwire announcement topic. post by me

 

MAJOR LOOK NOW!

 

 

You know what it’s all about by now… Another 2.71 SE-B update from Dark_AleX — this one primarily focuses on UMD/ISO stability resulting in better support for all your favourite ISOs and UMDs. So here it is, 2.71 SE-B'’ or SE-B3 as referred to by some.

 

Added SFO version bypass to real umd’s. (this should enable gta vcs umd to be played).

Fixed the problem of error 0×8002012D in certain games when plain modules are enabled. Because the problem is gone, the updater will reset the option of plain modules to enabled. If for some reason you still have that error, report it and disable the option, but it should be fixed now.

Found and corrected 3 bugs regarding no umd.

 

One of them affected Virtual Tennis and potentially a lot of other games.

The other two affected GTA LCS and GTA VCS.

Some games like Burnout Legend still don’t run in no-umd because of what seems a kernel stack problem.

Enjoy another fine Revision B release from Dark_AleX!

 

SE-B'' (or SE-B3)

 

read that again

 

 

(this should enable gta vcs umd to be played).

 

ok now i beg of someone to dump this new firmwire for 1.5 devhook users as i personally don't want to go through all this downgrading upgrading stuff.

 

thanks for the person that makes a FW dump of this using 2.81 firmwire dumper (not sure if it works with se-b3 but i can hope)

 

source: http://www.psp-hacks.com/2006/11/02/271-se-b-se-b3-released/2.71

Great news!

 

So for those who have a small memory card, if you can't wait any longer to play the game, you could upgrade your firmware to 2.71SE-B3 and play straight off the UMD.

 

If you wait a little more, I don't know why it wouldn't be possible to emulate 2.71SE-B3 in DevHook. We have to see how that sorts out. If that works, that's a complete solution.

 

SUMMARY

-----------

 

options right now:

- If you have a 2GB memory stick you can dump your own disk to an iso and run the game and cheatdevice in DevHook emulating 2.71.

- If you have a smaller memory stick, if you're on 2.71SE-B you can play the game for now by doing the bait-and-switch disk swap trick, or if you have 2.71SE-B3 you could play it without the swap trick.

 

options if you wait:

- If it's possible to emulate 2.71SE-B3 in DevHook, you'll be able to play VCS off the UMD and use cheatdevice.

I put a new version up

 

Download (for US or EU):

http://www.cheatdevice.com/gta/CheatDevice20.zip

 

Here's the changes.

 

- Renamed to vcscheatdevice.prx. If you installed the ALPHA, you need to edit your pspbtcnf_game.txt file and change cheatdevice.prx to vcscheatdevice.prx.

 

- Cheats now go in ms0:\cheats\vcs

 

- I added this to the README.TXT:

 

"IMPORTANT NOTE: After installing, wait at least 30 seconds before turning off USB or pulling out your memory stick. The PC caches your changes and doesn't write them out until a while later. If your memory card gets corrupt, use chkdsk /f X:

 

I advise against saving your game after using cheats. Please note that when you spawn vehicles, you are using a game cheat that will lower your criminal rating!"

No, that method is just a way to be able to play the game for now until there's a way to play through devhook w/o a 2GB memory card.

Will we ever get to use cheatdevice this way? Maybe through an eboot?

Well I formatted before you posted that, and now my ms runs a whole lot smoother. I backed up everything before i formatted (i tricked my pc into loading the ms by canceling the auto run and then pulling out my ms and putting it in real fast, that way it didn't freeze the pc.

maybe the problem with power jump is that it's changing the wrong thing. it seems like it may change the angle of toni, because of the way he spins, and walks afterwards. it also seems like there's some rotational momentum. hopefully it can get fixed soon colgate.gif

edison - great work it feels just like LCS cheatdevice. one suggestion - with the screen/video capture module, could the screenshot and video be optional to prevent conflicts?

 

Also i thought id clear some stuff up as i know a fair bit with devhook

 

 

options right now:

- If you have a 2GB memory stick you can dump your own disk to an iso and run the game and cheatdevice in DevHook emulating 2.71.

- If you have a smaller memory stick, if you're on 2.71SE-B you can play the game for now by doing the bait-and-switch disk swap trick, or if you have 2.71SE-B3 you could play it without the swap trick.

 

options if you wait:

- If it's possible to emulate 2.71SE-B3 in DevHook, you'll be able to play VCS off the UMD and use cheatdevice.

If the padding (i.e. useless) data in GTAVCS is removed, as well as the update, a few other files (like intro movies) are relinked the ISO can be made to fit comfortably onto a 1gb memory stick. Another solution is to use Devhook USB to play the ISO streamed off of your PC

 

As far as i know you can also use cheatdevice with the original UMD, just set UMD Mount to "UMD DISC" and UMD Select to "--- UMD DISC ---" and start up devhook as you would. Providing UMD Version is set to "2.xx -> 2.00" there will be no issues dodging the update. This should work for devhook under 2.71-SE, and 1.5 users.

 

And no, it is not possible to emulate 2.71 SE because it has a large flash directory which devhook doesnt have enough ram to emulate. However 1.5 users can still run the UMD just fine using devhook to emulate 2.71. 2.71-SE can just boot devhook with no firmware emulation, just ISO emulation and UMD Version to 2.xx -> 2.00 and the UMD will boot just fine, this way cheatdevice can be loaded.

 

so to sum up:

It is not possible to load cheatdevice on a "vanilla" (unmodified) 2.71 firmware. either downgrade to 1.5, or get 2.71-SE.

 

2.71-se users can use devhook to boot cheatdevice with the UMD. Just do what i said above, but also set "FIRMWARE" to the 'flash' setting.

 

1.5 users can emulate 2.71 in devhook and use cheatdevice all the same.

 

Vanilla 2.71 users can boot GTAVCS UMD (NOT cheatdevice just the game) by using the disc swap trick. 2.71 SE3 is out to dodge the update anyway so SE users should update.

I dont understand... I run devhook on 2.71 ( no SE- B3 ) or anything I dont understand what the guy said up there... i feel like a major noob, I got devhook .46 or w/e how do I launch devhook, and still be on SE- B 3?

i dont understand quite what you mean. so you're launching devhook and are not on SE-B?

 

Are you using Hen-C in that case to load devhook? If so you need a special version of devhook to support hen-c found at http://dax.lan.st . You can use that and load GTAVCS with the same settings i mentioned above.

 

 

edit: i think i know what you mean.

 

If you are on se-b, and what to run cheat device with a UMD, do the following:

Run devhook 0.46 on your SE-B firmware from the game directory.

 

Press O to prevent auto run, and change the following settings on the menu:

UMD Select to "--- UMD DISC ---"

UMD Mount to "UMD DISC"

UMD Version to "2.xx -> 2.00"

"FIRMWARE" to 'flash' setting (may be called "1.50 (flash)",not sure just the one that says flash)

 

If you are on SE-B with an iso version and want to run cheat device, do:

UMD Select to your ISO e.g. "GTAVCS.iso"

UMD Mount to "ISO ANYUMD"

UMD Version to "2.xx -> 2.00"

"FIRMWARE" to 'flash' setting (may be called "1.50 (flash)",not sure just the one that says flash)

I have 2.71 SE-B" and have been trying to load the new cheatdevice. You cannot load it using a UMD from DevHook, as the Flash option only works with 1.50 (I believe all it is is a file that calls the prx's from the flash, rather than the memory stick, so it's not the same).

Hey, I have a slight problem.

Because GTA isn't out in the UK yet I've had to use an ISO of it for now.. and as I like the radio stations it is ~940mb.

This doesn't leave enough space for devhook, so I looked into putting it in my flash0.

 

After a few attempts and reinstalls as one minute my my homebrew didn't work, then the next my ISO wouldn't load, I got it so everything was working and went to play around with the new cheat device.

 

However, when I load up GTA I can't get the cheat device to come up at all.

 

The line I added to pspbtcnf_game.txt was-

/kd/vcscheatdevice.prx added right under everything.

vcscheatdevice.prx was flashed in the kd folder of flash0.

 

I used pspfiler which was confusing at first, but I got them in there using the copy to RAM then paste from RAM (I deleted the original pspbtcnf_game.txt before pasting).

Should I have done this instead using the recovery menu? I was confused by the two options, one for 2.71 and one for 1.50..

 

Can anyone spot anything I've done which would make the cheat device not work? I am stumped.

 

Thanks in advance smile.gif

go here

it uses seb'' and flashes cheatdevice to flash0, so then you can start the umd, and use cheatdevice

(use at your own risk)

 

after using the iso for a week now, and then playing with the umd, it sucks. umd takes FOREVER to load, while the iso is 2seconds,,

but then again its take 3/4 of my memstick

Get the pspbtcnf_game.txt from flash0:/kn/ then add the vcscheatdevice.prx line and then replace pspbtcnf_game.txt inside flash0:/kn/ with the edited one The one you replaced before was the one for the 1.50 kernel.

Damm*t. Why did I have to trade my bad PSP in... Now I have a TA-082 psp 2.60. Softdown only works for 2.5.Theres no way to downgrade a TA-082 PSP... If I brick it I dont think Ill be able to return it at Bestbuy. Is there a way to run devhook on a 2.6 PSP.

You can upgrade to 2.71 and use HEN-C to run it. Search on chrislawrence's posts for step-by-step instructions.

 

You too makaveli, you can run DevHook from 2.71.

Ok I downloaded devhook 0.46 and the return to 1.5 from FW2.xx from an auto installer from psp-hacks.com. So if I upgrade to 2.71 will I be able to use this with lcs because I wont be able to play VCS until I get it... might be able to rent it... or have to wait til christmas(ughhh too long).

Version 2.0a:

Teleport - With 25 locations so far and more to come. I'm not through all the missions yet so it's still sketchy on the east island.

 

I was getting tired of all the driving back and forth to pick up missions. (sheesh, why can't these people live closer to where they work)

i have used this guide to flash the cheatdevice to my flash on firmware 2.71 se-b''

 

http://forums.qj.net/f-psp-firmware-discus...hook-76874.html

 

everything works as it should.

 

but when i try this with both the lcs and vcs cheatdevices, i lose sound and use of the home button and a few other buttons on the bottom row.

 

i hope this can be fixed, i would like both and the same time (without devhook) sad.gif
