RE: CW cheat request - HalfGodBro - 08-27-2014 07:45 AM

yea, i tried using cheat engine, but i have no idea on the step to take, to find those value...since those value arent visible and cannot be changed..Confused


RE: CW cheat request - ZeroX4 - 08-27-2014 09:19 AM

what game is it and what value you try to find ? i mean hp attack def ? or wtf ? and tell me game ID if you can it show up when you load game on ppsspp right from ppsspp name on top of the window


RE: CW cheat request - HalfGodBro - 08-27-2014 09:22 AM

its Star Ocean : Second Evolution, i'm trying to break the Max HP limit and Damage limit...it really doesnt seem simple tho
the game id is ULUS10375

EDIT: i tried only changing the current HP...and theres like 8 value that needs to be changed, and it makes the game crash if i try to go over max HP and it show numbers in -


RE: CW cheat request - LunaMoo - 08-27-2014 02:25 PM

@HalfGodBro you'll not make any kind of advanced cheat for psp using only cheat engine. It's a great tool, imo best one available on pc, but it's very limited on emulators for which it can only be used as a search tool.

You want to understand how the game works and change it, and for that you'll need a ppsspp disassembly. It's not really about finding value and changing it, but finding value, setting a breakpoint to it, understanding how the game works/what it does with it and slightly reprogramming it for your needs.
Also cheats like uncapping hp can be troublesome to do with more complex rpg games, because many things cap it with different functions, for example hp might be capped on level up, but also when using restoration items, when applying certain bonuses or even in different menus, so while it's nothing hardcore, it can actually get pretty time consuming.

ok 1st here are to screens where i did reach 9999 which is limit

2nd bar is toooooo looooooooong cause i only did edit current HP and didnt search current MAX HP

to change current max HP i would need to lvl up but i cant get out of that F########ing town!
i love games from developers of tales of phantasia but omfg movement in this game are making me angry like a b####ch

3rd i did change HP with only ONE 4 byte value

4th we have different ID of game so my cheat tablets wont work for you

so you need to tell me what exactly you want to do?
as i understand you game shows max HP is 9999 and you want to make it SHOW 10000 or more?

same thing with dmg?


RE: CW cheat request - HalfGodBro - 08-27-2014 04:46 PM

yes exactly, but for damage, i don't want to hack my damage, or even hacking my HP...i just want, through leveling, that i can exceed 9999 HP, and do over 9999 Damage...if you think its possible via cheat engine that would be awesome, else i think i'll have to find someone more skilled than me, i'm even willing to donate a fair amount of $ if someone is able to make me such a cheat


RE: CW cheat request - ZeroX4 - 08-27-2014 05:13 PM

well keep ur money i dont need it but look


game is programed that
at lvl 1 you have
- 5 atk
- 3 def
- 100 HP


at lvl too game is programed that you have
- 7 atk
- 8 def
- 150 HP

now if game is programed to lets say lvl 100
than it is possible to make game show that you have lvl 101 102 103.....

but on each of that lvl (if you use cheat engine to gain that lvl above cap) you wont get any extra exp or stats up

cause no 1 ever programed the game above lvl 100 and there is no indicator how much more exp,str,atk,def,mp ur char should gain

you dont understand let me explain you did play super mario? lets say super mario have 8 worlds and you completed them and now what you are trying to do is by using any sort of cheats gain access to world 9 or 10 or 11 and so go on

but that is impossible cause game developers did not program world 9 or 10 or 11 .........

and exact same story is with removing lvl cap in star ocean
you want to remove it and get something that was not made/programed

only option for you as i see it is to find someone who could re-program game make patch or whatever and add extra values for each lvl up, above lvl cap

do you understand? cause i can explain it in more complex way but it would be long Big Grin


RE: CW cheat request - LunaMoo - 08-27-2014 05:16 PM

@HalfGodBro catch. If you find a place in game where it doesn't work, let me know, since I only used some gamefaqs save.
Edit: and btw I think you should have post the request there in the first placeTongue.

omfg so they did all stuff with multiplier so what i said was totally wrong lol


RE: CW cheat request - LunaMoo - 08-27-2014 08:31 PM

Multiplier? Nah, when you level up/deal damage the new hp you should get/damage you should deal is calculated, then compared to nice round value which is the cap, then runs different code depending on the result of the compare. It's pretty simple to understand, but assembly is not exactly made for humans to read, so without some experience you might not even recognize what you want to find.

This game does alot of bothersome checks, like checking hp cap when starting a fight, when entering menus etc. it feels soo random and unnecessary that I surely missed some things. However after finding where it doesn't work, it's not really complicated, just set a breakpoint to find what game does at that specific moment and change it.


RE: CW cheat request - HalfGodBro - 08-27-2014 09:54 PM

Omg im gonna test this tonight! Thanks a lot! Im so happy xD


RE: CW cheat request - LunaMoo - 08-28-2014 02:05 AM

@HalfGodBro you're welcome:3.
Already can tell that my initial dmg uncap only affected magic, but I fixed it now;3. In case you actually wanted only magic dmg uncap, first 3 lines of that cheat affect magic, 3 last are for melee. Improved hp uncap a bit as well.


RE: CW cheat request - HalfGodBro - 08-28-2014 02:16 AM

no i wanted both Smile cause multi-hit are the only thing viable in the end-game and it gets boring
i'm still wondering if an increased HP cap is necessary, might makes the game too easy...but eh, getting to lvl255 is quite time consuming

sorry, i know it might sound dumb, but do you know how to "install" the cheat permanently into your game save? or do i have to activate the cheat each time?

im also having a problem right now with the hp cap, when i go out of a combat, lets say my character is at 12700 life, it shows up 2700 like you said for max hp, everything is fine, but the current hp is REALLY going down to 2700, so it shows like im missing a lot of health, if i wanna heal out of combat, it uses up a lot of resource, but if i dont heal, and return in another combat, everything is fine and im max hp
Edit: actually its only doing that with 1 of my character, also, when he is in combat his max hp isnt the same as on the player screen
