Territory Glitch Cheat-Device Code: PS2


Recommended Posts

gtafan1110

Oh, sorry, probably should have elaborated a bit.

I activated each code one at a time. I would use the specified button combo, kill CJ, then save. After that, I restart the ps2 and disable the code I just used and activate the next one. The Rifa/Aztecas/etc. gang war codes (the ones that change the territory colors), however, I am using all at once.

Don't use the Aztecas, Rifas, Triads, etc gang war codes all at once. Only use specific gang war codes at a time. For example: you can activate all 4 Azteca gang war codes at once (takeover the territories, save and go onto the next), but don't combine Triads with Rifas, etc.

Alright, after disabling all the other codes and only using one gang code group, the territories are still not working. I even tried reentering the codes.

What all codes do you have in your database? As of yet, the only codes you're having trouble with is the Azteca, Da Nang, Mafia, etc gang war codes, right?

 

PAL v1 game id is 06A3.

I only have my Enable Code and the codes I mentioned before.

And yes, the new gang codes are the only one I am having problems with.

I am using a Codebreaker, so there is no need to convert the raw codes.

Unfortunately, I have no experience with Codebreaker. Which version of Codebreaker do you have? BabeRuth uses multiple versions of Codebreaker and I know he uses Rics codes. You could ask him.

I'm using Codebreaker 9.3. Would the cheat device used change the outcome of the code?

No, the cheat device won't affect the codes effects. The thing is, the cheat device used might need certain lines to process properly which can only be acquired through conversions.

Sorry to come in late without thoroughly reading all that's been said, but... Are the zone colors the only problem? The non-standard colors tend be be flaky. The changes don't save well, and the game is constantly trying to adjust all of the colors based on changes in density and are liable to undo the coded changes. If the correct gangs aren't appearing in the correct zone there might be a more serious problem.

The colored territories do not stay under my control. If I win a gang war in a Azteca/Rifa/Triad/Mafia territory, the territory changes to their correct color (Cyan, blue, red, grey) instead of green. I cannot gain control of any of their territories. I can, however, take a Vagos or Ballas territory with no problems.

 

Also, when the color changes to cyan/red etc after the gang war, if I suicide, start another war, or enter an interior it changes back to purple or yellow and I have to take it over again.

Okay, that's not normal at all. The territories are supposed to be blue, red, orange (whatever) and the specific gang & Ballas are supposed to spawn. You are to kill at least 3 Ballas then the specific gang will come in 3 waves. After killing them, the territory is supposed to turn green and only Grove is supposed to spawn. That leads me to the theory that when you activated them all at once and saved, it bugged (or worse, corrupted) your file. You might need to erase your file (if it's bugged) or get a new memory card (if it's corrupted).

Alright, I'll try a new save. I'll be sure to activate a single gang wars group this time

The new save changed nothing. Same result. Only activated one gang war group (Aztecas).

That means either A: your memory card got corrupted or B: Ric made a mistake when porting those codes to PAL v1.

It isn't just my PAL copy that does this. I also tried the codes on my NTSC copy (with a different memory card) and it did the same thing.

Probably not a 'porting error since the same problem was reported for NTSCv1 which I'm sure what thoroughly tested. I'm wondering if the code is still running, which would overwrite any changes from the gang war. Perhaps the jokers work differently on codebreaker, although that seems unlikely. Do the color/density changes occur before the button is pressed? One test would be to make all changes, save, and restart the game without any codes active.

 

The jokers are supposed to prevent the codes from working unless the button is pressed. If things are working as expected it should be possible to have several codes in memory and active them one at a time.

 

How are you starting wars against gangs other than Ballas or Vagos? I know ric knows how to get other gangs to show up for a war or attack, but didn't know those codes were included in this set, and it's the kind of code that needs to be active to work. Even then, wars can only be started against Vagos and Ballas. The other bit of gang war mechanics: normally if Ballas and Aztecas share a turf, it should only be possible to trigger a war in that zone if the Ballas have a higher density than the Aztecas. The war will be against the Ballas, but grove will get all of the density after the war.

I'm running out of ideas. I tested all Rics NTSC v1 codes (on the first page anyway) at least once and no problems arose with them. Ric-013, OrionSR & Skills might have some theories for you.

 

I still have an idea though it will take a few questions to initiate it, and so lets use the Aztecas territories to put it into context. Without the codes active, what gang currently occupies the El Corona zones?

The war will be against the Ballas, but grove will get all of the density after the war.

There is no button combo mentioned by Ric in any of his posts for the jokered gang war codes I am having problems with, and from other posts on the thread it doesn't look like any button press is needed. I think the jokers are triggered by an event in the game (such as loading, dying, being busted, etc) rather than a button press.

 

As for the color on the map, it shows up as Ballas/Vagos territory, yet Aztecas still show up there. The territory only turns the code's intended color (cyan, red, grey) when I have completely taken over the territory, even though the territory is supposed to turn green when captured. No Grove members spawn, the gang density does not seem to change. If I suicide, go into an interior, or start another gang war, the "captured" territory turns back to purple/yellow.

 

To start the war, I kill 3 Ballas in that territory. Instead of Ballas, Aztecas come to attack me. That shows that at least part of the code is working correctly.

When no codes are active, I find Aztecas and Ballas in El Corona.

@OrionSR: Ric didn't include a joker with the Azteca, Rifa, Da Nang, etc gang war codes. The only exceptions are the LV Mafia, Gang 9, etc and those are only to implant density, not enable the wars.

Refer to Rics first post on the first page.

 

@gtafan1110: Wow, that's not the response I expected. I expected it to be one (Ballas) or the other (Aztecas). What I expected was Ballas would spawn if the last code you used was the 371 code. Likewise, I expected Aztecas would spawn if the last code you used was the code that restored Aztecas, Rifas, etc to their default territories. I didn't expect both and thus, my theory was erased.

 

Can you provoke any war without the code active?

Yes, gang wars work normally while the code is disabled. Ballas/Vagos come in 3 waves, and after it is finished, the territory turns green and Grove St. members replace the previous gang.

New suggestion then: takeover the territories without the code in effect, then save it, turn the game off, activate the Azteca war codes and see if it's fixed.

I disabled the codes, reset the PS2, captured an Azteca territory, it turned green and Grove members immediately appeared.

I saved, reset, enabled the codes, and now the territory is purple again. I capture it, it turns cyan. Nothing appears to have changed.

After attacking the Ballas in the cyan territory, Aztecas attacked me as they should. When the war was over, the territory was still cyan.

I get it now; no matter how many times you provoke a war and win, it stays the same color and the same gangs keep spawning. It's hard for me to properly analyze these particular codes because Ric didn't give a proper layout of the compositions. As of now, I'm out of ideas. Hopefully someone replies with something that gives me an idea.

Is everyone convinced that the NTSC and PAL version both suffer from the same conditions?

Does the shorter Da Nang code work the same as the Aztecas code?

 

These codes are more complex than I first thought. I hadn't realized that ric had implemented this strategy. I helped develop the method used and might be able to figure out what's going on but it will take a while. If there is definitely a difference between v1 and PAL then I might be able to detect a problem with the port.

 

I was mistaking E002A9EF 0066C8AC as a joker code. But if you define "joker" as requiring a button press then these are conditional checks. It's basically the same as a button test but a different area of memory is checked.

The only thing I can attest to is NTSC v1 works accordingly.

 

 

Does the shorter Da Nang code work the same as the Aztecas code?

 

With the Da Nang code, the map turned orange, Ballas & Da Nang spawned, I killed 3 Ballas triggering a war. The waves consisted of Da Nang and when I killed them in 3 waves, the map turned Green and Grove spawned. With the Aztecas code, the map turned Cyan, Ballas & Aztecas spawned, I killed 3 Ballas triggering a war. The waves consisted of Aztecas and when I killed them in 3 waves, the map turned Green and Grove spawned. As you know, no joker was used and I didn't even have to get wasted/busted.

 

These are the codes I used as to help you analyze the porting:

The port from NTSCv1 to PALv1 looks fine. I'm leaning towards a difference in how codebreaker is handling the conditional checks or how Omni/Maxconvert manages the conversion. I have no way to test that.

 

gtafan1110, can you post one of the raw codes used above whatever you used for codebreaker? Which converter are you using. Do both of the major converters provide the same output?
