Re: Caetla running on cd?

Yes. Most cheat systems are stand alone exectutables, but some (like Game Guru, last GameShark/Xploder/CheatcodeS versions) do load resource files from the disc. I believe that some Datel stuff play their introduction/adverts from fixed LBAs too. What cheat software would you like to have into a sin...

The disc length is 00:03:18 (including the pregap). I'm not sure that mastering data tracks shorter than 4 seconds is standard compliant, or if your CDR burning issue is related to this, but I'll leave the rebuilt image here anyway...

Re: PSX BIOS from PSP 6.60 optimised to play games more smoothly - but in what way?

2013: the benefits became clear The benefits of PSXonPSP BIOS were first noticed in 2013 by users of the newly released POPS (Sony's PS1 emulator on PS2; ripped from a 2010 Japan-only PSBB downloadable PS1 game demo; hacked to run any PS1 game from HDD/USB/SMB). It was favoured by POPS users due to...

Re: UniROM V6 - New stuff and things.

That 4M SST isn't supported by Caetla, that's why it cannot save codes and config. Freezes on "Loading" box and fast/full Caetla boot doing the same is due to the unsupported PAR3/GS3 switch mapping. Also, the controller does bank swap. Get a Xploder/Xplorer/X-Terminator device to have a functionnal...

Re: UniROM V6 - New stuff and things.

I have scph-7501. When I tried unirom v6 bios boot did not work I think, but it does work on v44. I would say v44 is better since you can just push r1 then r2 to boot game, I don't want to have to navigate the menu every single time like with v6. V6 2M does boot with R2. V6 standalone does not. I b...

Re: Backup Action Replay Professional Datel V3.0

Ooooh, an undumped version :oops: . Sad that its code list was flushed tho... To backup your ROM, you need either Datel's PlayStation Version 3 Utilities (aka PSX Utils), or Hanimar's ReflashTool CDROM image and DOS apps. Both require a PC with a LPT parallel port. Datel's software encrypts the dump...

Well, the AR v1.x ROMs in the X-Flash ROMFILE can fit your 1M EEPROM, but the AR changelog sounds like v1.98 and higher expect two 1M EEPROMs to be installed. I'm not familiar...

Re: BIOS region check routine bypassing

@kHn: Your archive contains a patched OSD.EXE, right? I'd bet this would also work directly, leaving the original experience intact. Yep, it's the OSD EXE extracted from the BIOS image, + a valid PS-X header, so it can be opened in your fav disassembler for you to see what's patched inside. Perhaps...

Re: BIOS region check routine bypassing

The check is on the OSD executable, and the OSD executable is compressed in some BIOSes. I did hardpatch a PS BIOS image (during the POPStarter development) to skip the bootsector check, luckily it was not packed. But this approach, for compressed OSD, would require the injection of a subroutine (pa...
