This tutorial is for people that need help playing games on Coder.
SM3.8 Coder. You should already have it if you are reading this)
CD/DVD Version: Buy it.
It's very easy and doesn't really need a tutorial but here we go.
Converting from Codebreaker 7+ (Newer Codes) to RAW (Usable by Coder):
Step 1: Click the "Input" menu and select Codebreaker/Version 7+.
Step 2: Click the "Output" menu and select Unencrypted/Standard.
Step 3: Go to cmgsccc.com (you'll need to register) and under "Games" "Sony PlayStation®2" Select the game you want codes for (for the tutorial I'll use Silent Hill-Origins).
Step 4 Copy/paste the codes you want into the input section like so
Special Note For "Enable" Codes: Enable or (M) Codes for 7+ have 4 lines of code
And the first line is always the same for every game hacked for 7+
We only need the last line when converting so this
Would become this
MAKE SURE to delete the first three lines of the enable code!!
Step 5: Click the convert button in the bottom left corner.
Then you'll see your usable codes in the output field (See above picture)
For converting other code types:
Some games listed on cmgsccc.com have an Enable Code that has only 1 or 2 lines, these where hacked for versions 1-6 of the Codebreaker.
For 2 line (M) codes you need to keep BOTH lines for the game to work.
The steps are exactly the same as above except for Input select Codebreaker/Version 1+ and so on and so forth for what ever cheat device the codes are hacked for.
Supported code types are:
Action Replay MAX
Action Replay V1/V2
Putting codes into the Swap Magic 3.8 Coder:
I will do code conversions if you ask politely but, you need to have tried and failed at least twice. (The code didn't work)
Since I explained it in detail and gave you an idiot proof tool I don't think I'll see many conversion requests.
For a request please reply to this thread instead of starting a new one.
Step 1: Load up your coder (Either elf or cd/dvd)
Note: My digital camera can't take proper pictures of my TV screen so this part won't have screen shots until I can find them from another source.
Step 2: From the main menu select the "Cheat Menu" and hit X.
Step 3: You will be at the game list, Hit the Square button and select "ADD GAME" and hit X.
Step 4:Type in the Games name (eg. Silent Hill-Origins) and select the big check mark.
Step 5: Select the game name and hit right on the D-Pad. You are now in the code list.
Note: User added games/codes are in all CAPITAL LETTERS because of the primitive interface of the coder.
Step 6:Hit Square and select "ADD DESCRIPTION". Name the cheat.
Step 7: Select the cheat name and hit right on the D-Pad.
Note: The Enable or (M) Code MUST BE FIRST otherwise none of the other codes will work.
Step 8: Hit Square and select "ADD HEXCODE"
Step 9: Use the numbers and letters onscreen to enter the line of code you got from Omniconvert.
Step 10: Repeat Steps 6-9 until you have put in every cheat you want to.
Note: For codes that have multiple lines of code you need to click "ADD HEXCODE" for every line.
Step 11: Select all the cheats you want to use by highlighting the cheats name and hitting X.
Step 12: Hit Start and select "SAVE" from the popup.
Step 13: You'll be at the "Boot Disk" menu, select Normal or Special depending on your game and hit X.
There you go you cheater. ;D
