    @Andrew691 great guide!

    @ManalMax....

    There is an alternative way to load cheats for Final Fantasy XII, you can use the codebreaker elf to boot off your memory card.

    I usually use Andrew691s method, but I used the above for FFXII. Just google for Codebreaker 9.2 elf....

    i tried loading the AR Max first, then loading the HDadvance, it just goes into black screen for a long time,
    does this mean it doesnt work on mod ps2 sets then?

    Does this work off of a hdd copy of the game? I've tried loading it, and cb loads correctly, but hangs when I try to launch. I've got the "fixed" version of cb 9.2, but I'm using an Independence exploit mc and disc.

    Hi, i've tried this on a lot of different games, and ARMAX does start. But ARMAX hangs not on the same spot, sometimes i have been able to load the codelist and then hang, sometimes i don't even get to go into expertmode. If I am quick enough to press start and start the game without any codes active tha game starts perfectly. Am I the only one that experiences this problem? Haven't seen anybody else post anything similar to this.
    Is it that i have had shitty luck and all the ISO's I've tried isn't compatible, or am i missing something?

    ok i tried the method above but the cb 9.2 elf dose not seem to work for me on ff12 it loads cb fine and then i select codes then press start select start game it asks me to load disk so i put in my retail hdl disk wait for it to load and select final fantasy 12 and it loads perfectly... BUT NO CODES any ideas btw im running the elf off of the hdd as well should i load it off of the MC instead or what

    much thanks


    oh and also i have worked with this game for a month now there seems to be no way of extracting the files from the disk with isobuster or any other program as with most squaresoft games you can make a backup but the files remain hidden

    THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Before I posted that my built iso didn't work (Hitman: Blood Money) I tried the thing where you add the AR Max files first then the game files. AR Max finally loaded off the HD but then the game didn't load. So I reput the first one in (game files first, armax last) and it worked. I looked at the size. For some reason HD Advance only copied 2.7gigs of my 2.96 gig disc. No wonder it didn't work.

    I really wanted to use it on FFX but even this one had hidden files (i think it has something to do with lba).

    I've overall read this guide about 5-6 times, enough to make my own iso without reading it again. That's how well built this guide is. I also want to give a big, big, BIG thanks to ChevyUK for coming up with the idea.

    By the way, does anyone have a guide for putting Gameshark on the iso. I know others asked earlier but I was just wondering.

    Big thanks to both Andrew691 and ChevyUK once more.

    yeah i got it to work Final fantasy XII cheats useing cb9.2elf method here is how i did it step for step


    first you have to have a elf launcher on your MC and a trigger disk i used a elf called ULAUNCHELF but i believe any launcher will work
    now you deed a dms hdd tool elf file and place it on the mc card as well i wont explain how i did this as the stuff on the mc are considered exploits and im not sure if this site allows them or instructions for them but to any one who wants it i have a complete cheat, exploit, launcher and tools zip file with instructions but to go on to how i actualy made the cheat work


    1: loaded ulaunch elf
    2: browsed to hdd\apps(where my elf for cb9.2 is)
    3: loaded it up
    4: downloaded codes from codebreaker website for ff12
    5: selected day1 in cb9.2 updated code list with ff12
    6: selected cheats pressed start went to the menue (now comes the trickey part)
    7: here we go select start game. when the disk ejects place an origanal ps2 game in the drive (almost any will do) listen closely and watch the screen at the point you here a spindown and the screen goes to black press eject imediately (it may take a few tries if it dose not go to the file browser screen in 30-60 seconds reset and try it again) NOTE:(this will not harm your ps2 in any way).now place the ps1 trigger disk in and close the drive. it should go to the ps2 filebrowser select the immage of the black disk so that your elf launcher loads launch the hdl.elf file (before any one asks i have tested the retail hdloader and hdadvanced it will not work because the cd unloads the codes out of memmory) select the game you have cheats on for and your in invincible heaven


    elfs you will need
    CB v9.2 (cracked) elf file
    Hdloader elf
    dms hdd tool elf
    ulaunch elf

    OTHER THINGS NEEDED
    an exploited mc card (with some free space)
    knowledge of how to use the above elfs
    HDD with games installed

    and some patients

    good luck

    P.S.

    If any one wants to add to this go ahead but this dose work i was estatic when vaan came up with 99999999gil and 999999999 life

    Thanks giga. I just got the cracked version of Codebreaker (CB9.2.elf). Your method works perfectly.

    glad to hear it it also works on most if not all hdd games no more needing to inject armax to the games on the hdd i tried it with tales of legendia, digimon world 4, legend of spyro a new begining, radiata stories, full metal alchemist 1 and 2, ffx - ffx2, all work fine will be trying with some others like socom, call of duty 3, and others as soon as i play and beat all the ones on the hdd at the moment so i can free up some space lol i have an 80gb segate drive in there now and 256mb is dedicated to elf files and media files the rest is for games only but i noticed the more you put on the hdd the slower some games run or the fmv movies chopp up

    Only thing is there isnt (to the best of my knowledge) a PAL Codebreaker, otherwise I would be all for using it like that. I too have an 80gb seagate with 256mb for all kinds of other files, and have 19 games on it and have been noticing the lag quite a bit.
    Is that new Spyro any good? thought they killed the series with the first one for PS2 and have been a bit reluctant to buy the new one if its that bad.

    If you want to download the cracked codebreaker it can probably be found at cryptbreaker.hyperboards.com along with all other cheat disc.

    me personaly i never liked spyro but this new one is alot better and the graphics are alot better and it even has some famous voice overs as i understand it this might be the last spyro for gc or ps2 the new spyro vs the old ones is more feature rich and somewhat like an rpg

    as for the pal codes im not sure but if im right there is a way to make it work i will check into it and let you know

    is it the same way as making an exploit for HDloader? If it is do i use the same ps1 cd or a different one?
     
  18. giga8547

    giga8547 Guest

    same way except you would use a loader like loaderelf keylauncher so on to load the cb9.2elf and then the hdldrelf so instead of booting strait to your hdloader it will boot to a elf management program so you can select any elf you want you can even make a seperate partition on the hdd to store as many elfs as you want like emulators disk tools cheat elfs media player elfs the possibilitys are endless

    im still confused (sry but im a noob). Can you explain things in more detail and in a way easier for someone like me to understand.
     
  20. giga8547

    giga8547 Guest

    1st do you already have an exploit on you mem card?
    if yes then what is that exploit?? hdloader??
    if it is hdloader then you need to change it to an elf called launch.elf if it is going to be on the mem card rename it to BOOT.ELF
    and place it in the apropriate spot overwriteing your current exploit. there is a site that explains 100% how to do this in detail

    you will need a elf called dms hdd tool (HDDF44.ELF)
    this will alow you to create a seperate partition on the hdd to store elf files i cant explain in detial all the way because im not sure if it is against the forum rules if you need more info go to yahoo google or other search engine and search for (ps2 exploit or dms format tool)
