    Default Cheat Device PS2

    Here's a project I've been working on for the last few months:
    Cheat Device for PS2
    sgvnUIq.png
    Cheat Device is a game enhancer for PlayStation 2 games, similar to Action Replay, GameShark, and CodeBreaker. It supports booting retail, disc based games as well as ELF files such as OpenPS2Loader or ESR.

    Features
    • Easy to navigate menu system similar to CodeBreaker
    • Supports retail discs and loader ELFs
    • Fast loading of large cheat lists
    • Save manager for backing up and restoring game saves to/from a flash drive
    • Powered by ps2rd's powerful cheat engine


    Important Things
    Storing Cheats
    Cheat databases are stored in CDB files created with cdb-util, which will convert cheat lists following this simple format:
    Code:
    "Game Name"
    Enable
    90000000 88888888
    Cheat 1
    27654321 12345678
    Cheat 2
    12345678 98765432
    Cheat Section
    Cheat 3
    11111111 00000000
    
    // Comment line
    Enable Codes
    9-type enable codes (9xxxxxxx yyyyyyyy) are supported, and the first cheat for every game must contain an enable code. If an F-type enable code is used instead (which is common for older games), it will be silently ignored and a hook will be installed automatically by the code engine. Many games have been tested with the auto-hook function, but its best if a 9-type enable code is used.

    Code Format
    All cheats must be in "RAW" format; Cheat Device can't decrypt or read any other formats (ARMAX, CB1-6, CB7+, AR2, GS, etc.). However, you can use
    tools such as OmniConvert to convert any of these formats to RAW.

    Settings File
    Settings are stored in an ini file named "CheatDevicePS2.ini", which needs to be located in the directory Cheat Device is run from. The cheat database path and additional boot paths are set here. See the included settings file for an example.

    Included is the CodeBreaker 10.0 database. Please report any bugs to me if you find them.

    Curious as to how to boot this on a retail system? do you need to have some hack hacks installed or a modchip? Really nice by the way! Also can you edit existing cheat entries so that when you have new codes you can add them to the existing list.

    You'll need a softmod or modchip to boot this on a retail system. As of now you have to create a new CDB database to edit or add codes, but I plan to add console-side editing in the future.

    Updated the link to makecdb in the OP. Now it supports creating CDB databases from multiple txt cheat lists by merging them together as well as sorting the game list in the final CDB.

    Thanks for adding support for ps2esdl.

    Also, would it be possible to add back support for plain text files?

    Overall this has got to be the best cheating app for PS2.

    Glad you like it. Loading cheats from plain text files will be added in a later release, I just have to create a parser. I opted to not use libcheats (which is used by ps2rd) to do this because I found it to be very slow.

    Not yet, but I will definitely consider adding this to my todo list for new features

    Hello. With this you no longer need a codebreaker elf if you use freemcboot, correct?
