News/release from raing3
I was originally going to post this on the CWCheat forums but I am still waiting for my account to be activated so I can post therefore I am posting it here. I'm hoping I can get some help.
Ok, don't expect much from this at the momment, I only bothered starting this because no-one else has done it yet and many of the PSPAR cheats are not available in the CWCheat database.
Basically it can only convert "some" standard 8-bit, 16-bit and 32-bit type cheats to CWCheat format. I'm releasing this now because I have very little idea of how to fix the issues I am having. If you think you can help please post any information here.
Please DON'T post a list of cheats which don't work as I can quite easily see which cheats don't work and until it can convert the cheats better I DON'T care about reports of cheats which don't work. Also when you do convert the cheats you must place the PSPAR code file in the root of the Memory Stick and call it "pspar_codes1.bin". The difference between conversion mode 1 and 2 is that mode 1 will try to convert the addresses and values if needed to CWCheat format and save the file to "ms0:/cheats.txt". Whereas mode 2 will simply dump the addresses and values as they are written in the original PSPAR code file to "ms0:/cheats_nomod.txt".
Since I am unable to solve these issues further releases will be unlikely unless I can get some help fixing the issues which I am having.
However that is fixed in version 0.21.
Here is another quick update to fix a few issues.
Changes in version 0.21:
- Fixed: Crash if CIRCLE is enter
- Fixed: Issue converting various DMA cheats (thanks to haro and NoEffex)
Version 0.21 can be downloaded here.
With this version I have tested ~235 cheats and this is the compatibility results:
- version 0.10: 71.30%
- version 0.20: 87.75%
- version 0.21: 90.13%
As you can see that is quite close to the 100% however I still need help fixing the codes which aren't converted correctly. I've attatched all of my notes with version 0.21 and there is quite a lot more than there was before. I've also added a few links to some useful information and a useful java PC application to the first post.
