  • .CBC files being downloaded off Gamehacking.org are damaged (somehow)

    So, I decided today I wanted to play some Final fantasy X international version and decided to download the codes from here: https://gamehacking.org/game/97035 once I downloaded the file I proceeded to rename it FFX without changing the extension and then I run from CMD cb2util 1.7.

    I get an error when I type cb2util cbc FFX.cbc > FFX.txt , the error is that cb2util says this file is not a .cbc file, just in case this an isolated case I proceeded to download a cheat file of kingdom hearts 1 (https://gamehacking.org/game/104091), when I type cb2util cbc KH.cbc > KH.txt I get an error claiming that "this is not a .cbc file".

    What leads me to believe its a bug is that I found a github repository with several day 1 files (https://github.com/madmodder123/ps2_.../DAY_ONE_FILES) and when I downloaded a random one (https://github.com/madmodder123/ps2_...S/finalfsw.cbc) which I renamed FFSW and ran it via the commands... it converts it perfectly to .txt.

    I am also adding the files so somebody else can test my results. The files I mentioned.7z

    I'm having trouble converting this to text all I get are a bunch of symbols, I'm using Win Zip. Have you tried this link?

      They don't have FFX International, the difference of that version and the normal FFX is tons of added content, namely, super bosses (also I can't download anything because I don't have a wecastro account).

      You also don't use winzip for the.cbc files, you use cb2util (https://github.com/downloads/mlafeld...-1.7-win32.zip) and after you unzip that I suggest copy and pasting it to your users folder, then, Run CMD and type cb2util cbc **insert filename here**.cbc > **insert filename here**.txt

          On further inspection FFX International has 0 codebreaker codes, which is odd. Just in case I went back to the Kingdom hearts 1 page and filtered the codes by codebreaker and then selected just one codebreaker code and downloaded the file. The results are the same, "KH.cbc is not a cbc file":
