What is Cwcheat?

Cwcheat is the FIRST ever cheat device available on PSP.With cwcheat you can apply raw-relative cheat codes either in PSP and POPS game mode (due to two different version of this application: cwcheat and cwcheatpops) just like the famous commercial products "Action Replay", "CodeBreaker", "GameShark", "Xploder", etc. available on other platforms. cwcheat also features cheat searching and editing through a nice and easy-to-use in-game menu. There are other cheat devices, but I personally like cwcheat. THIS WORKS FOR FAT AND SLIM

YOUTUBE (My first video in youtube)
Requirements:

1. Cwcheat - download it from here or here(In this guide we will be using "CWCHEAT_0_2_2_REVD" will update if needed)
2. A Custom Firmware PSP ( Any firmware, ill be using 4.01 M33-2)

Steps :

1. Go to the Site on the "Requirements" page. Then click on the DOWNLOAD CWCHEAT button. This will download the latest one that is out. After extract the files into your desktop.

2. After you should see a whole bunch folders and files. Connect your psp to the pc. Now I'm going to split this guide if u have different firmwares. If u have 3.71 M33, go to step "4". If you have a different firmware continue on the guide.

3. If you have 3.71 M33 do not continue. Skip to step "4". Open up your cwcheat folder, you should see a INSTALL folder. Open it up and copy the seplugins folder into the root of your psp.
(E.g. X/SEPLUGINS/CWCHEAT where X is your psp drive letter). Skip to Step 5.

4. If you don't have 3.71 M33 do not continue. Go to step 3.Open up your cwcheat folder, you should see a INSTALL_371 folder. Open it up and copy the seplugins folder into the root of your psp.
(E.g. X/SEPLUGINS/CWCHEAT where X is your psp drive letter) Continue on the guide.

5. Once after that is all complete. Turn off your psp completely ( Hold the power button). Turn it on again and HOLD R. This should bring you to your recovery mode. Go to plugins and enable all the plugins.



6. Start your game and HOLD select on the game. This should bring you the cwcheat ! Go to "Select Cheats" and choose your cheat. After go back to the menu and enable the cheats. Have Fun.

UPDATING THE CHEAT DATABASE


UPDATE: Cwcheat Official Site hasn't been updating their site for a long time. Use this if you want to update it.

You should always update your cheat database for newer game cheats. There are two ways to download the cheat.db

Updating with the PC
[/i]
1. Click this link
2. Download the database into your desktop
3. Put the cheat.db into the seplugins/cwcheat folder
4. Replace the old cheat.db

UPDATING WITH THE PSP via online

1. Open the CWCHEAT folder you download from the requirements
2. Go into the DATABASE DOWNLOAD folder. There is two types ...
3. Copy the 3.X folder into the GAME folder or your PSP. Make sure the GAME kernel is set to 3.XX or 4.XX in the recovery mode.

You can also run the application through 1.50 kernel. If you do not know what this is. Thenm= forget about it, and just the use the 3.X version.

GUIDE: MAKE Cwcheat Codes

NOT FOR NOOBZ

This is a guide to make cwcheat codes. Let me warn you somethin. This isn't easy. I'm not an expert at this so don't ask me crazy questions. Also, don’t ask me to find codes for you. I do not have time to get the game, get codes and test it.

You will need cwcheat, look at the above guide

Requirements

Cwcheat
Custom Firmware PSP
Artmoney (Freeware)
Cwcheat Database Editor

Searching and Dumping

1. When u download cwcheat it should come with a cheat searcher. I find that its a big laggy, so i use google and found a better one. It's called Artmoney
download the freeware version unless u want to but the pro version.

2. Let's BEGIN ! Find the game you want. Then go to the cwcheat menu (hold select), then go to "cheat in-game menu". Change the "N" to "Y" in the "Enable Dump Function"

3. Take a deep breath and let’s go back to the game. Find a value you like to change (E.g. HP, SP, Money, Items, …etc). Remember the number u wanted to change on all the next 3 dumps

4. Now press and hold the Square button until it’s says “Dumping”. Usually the dumps take quite a lot of memory. Make sure that u have at least 20 MB free before doing this.

5. Go back to your game and change something on the value (like get hit, buy something …etc) you chose on step 3. Then take a dump ( not the bathroom one ...) and then go to step 6!

6. After that, repeat step 5 to make a third dump. Now connect your PSP to ur PC and start Artmoney on your PC. U can connect by using the CWcheat menu by click the enable USB to Y

7. On Artmoney go to the search tab and click options. Switch the setting on object to files. Then click OK. Now click the (…) button on the left. Browse for your MEMDUMP0.dmp

8. Now click Search. On the Value box enter the amount of value u had on dump 1. Like the amount of HP on your first dump. Then, it should give you a bunch of codes on the left side.

9. Now Browse for your MEMDUMP1.dmp. Then click Filter and enter the value you noted before. (On the left side, there should be a bit lesser codes)

10. Do the same thing as 9 except use the 3rd dump. Now, there should be one left. That is your code. If there is more than one, than make more dumps. The more dumps u have the more accurate and better.

CONVERTING THE CODES TO CWCHEAT

1. The cwcheat code format looks like this

1st Set 2nd Set
0x00000000 0x0000000

For the first set of 0`s.You are goin to use the number on art money. Replace the last zeros with the number you got from Artmoney. For example if I have a 27554. Then it would be 0x00027554.

2. Sadly, we aren’t done yet. We just need to add one more thing. On the first number of x u need to add …

0 – If u are changing a 8 bit value
1 – If u are changing a 16 bit value
2 – If u are changing a 32 bit value

Most RPG stats are 8 bit. And money are mostly 16 bit and 32 bit.

Now to the second set

1. Open your Windows Calculator. Click the View Tab and click Scientific. Now enter the desired amount for example 100. Now click HEX (make sure it was DEC before) this should give you a number. I got 64.

8 bit- Max is 255
16 bit – Max is 65535
32 bit – Max is 429467295

For example
0x00027554 0x00000064

PUTTING INTO THE DATABASE

1. First download the CWCHEAT database editor. Then download a cwcheat database. Open it with the editor.

2. Find your game and make a new code. Then put the two codes inside. If there isn’t the game then put a new folder. Remember to save it.

LukeWiggy's guide hasn't helped me so far so mrgooey, your help is still welcome lol
#13
try reformattin the card with the psp. Cuz it works on 4.01 M33 for me.


#14
I have the same problem, I have a Phat 4.01 M33-2 and after formatting the MS it didn't work.
#15
hi, so i figured out why it didn't work, it's actually because of the .txt files, you have to re-install everything from scratch, you have to remove the GAME, GAME150 and also the POPS files, and then add your other plugins address on the txt files, also, for some reason, i can't disable the other plugins that are in the same file as the CWCHEAT, if i do, cwcheat stops working, (i'm using the remotejoy and some other software) anyway, yeah, you have to redo everything from scratch so basically:

- go into seplugins folder in PSP root
- delete cwcheat folder
- delete GAME file (and make a backup on your desktop if you have other stuff installed)
- delete GAME150 file (and make a backup on your desktop if you have other stuff installed)
-delete POPS file (and make a backup on your desktop if you have other stuff installed)
- and finally you re-install the whole thing using mrgooey's guide!
and there's a new version i think, the revC version...

hope this helps..
#16
yeah i was thinking about that. Though reformattin the card would help, since u have to put cwcheat all over again. thx for the tip, nettiger.

Hi,

Do I still keep the game.txt, game150.txt and pops.txt?

Do I press and hold the 'Select' after I start the game? It did not seem to work. The menu did not show up.

I'm running on 4.01 M33-2. Thx!
#21
You copy all the "seplugins" folder into the root of your PSP.

You can not delete anything inside the seplugins folder, or it won't work


#22
Finally got it to work! Thanks!
If I update the cheat database, can I just copy the cheat database file into the folder? Do I have to enable the plugins again in the recovery menu?

Updating with the PC
1. Click this link
2. Download the database into your desktop
3. Put the cheat.db into the seplugins/cwcheat folder
4. Replace the old cheat.db

You do not have to enable it again. Cwcheat will automatically refresh and get you cheat database


#24
Thanks mrgooey!
#25
Sweet !! Thanks a lot !!

I suggest making Steps 3&4 a little easier to understand, because I got very confused reading them. Anyway, I got it, and it's awesome !!
