i already have read that the cheats feature IS NOT intended to cheat at games (eg. more money, life, invulnerability, etc...)
but i am amight curious as to how you write the .cht files so that they work with the game.

from looking at the Breath of Fire 4 cheat file:


breath_of_fire_4_usa.cht <---file name

contents:
#Breath of fire 4 (remove castle freeze bug)
1cffd4 0

-----------------------------------------------------------
the line beginning with # is the title of the game and what the specific byte patch does?

the second line is the byte patch itself?
-----------------------------------------------------------
so to make one, and correct me if im wrong please

filename: [title of game, using '_' for spaces, with region].cht
#[TITLE OF GAME]
[byte patch (in hexadecimal format)]

if anyone has a clue as to how to do this, please help me out- criticism is welcome- im somewhat familiar with using hex patches

Well..we can give you an easy answer, and a more complex answer..

For the easy answer we will urge you to find Aldo Vargas's PECedit program. It has a nice little feature that allows you to export PEC / Gameshark codes to ePSXe *.cht format.

For the more complex answers we urge you to find the PECHelper tools that will help you in HEX editing

about an hour after posting this thread i found [pec] online..

that answered a lot of questions

after messing with PEC all i can say is:
theres nothing more fun than having 99 Excalibur II's when youre on the 1st disc of Final Fantasy 9!
