Gameshark and Multi Disc

Post by Syntax » May 20th, 2019, 8:36 pm

I was thinking of setting gameshark up for every game i have and figured a good way would be to have a MULTIDISC.LST file in every game folder that looked like so..

Code: Select all

disc.bin
../Code Breaker/disc.bin
I was wondering if when you get to the end of your list does it go back to the start?

So when i choose a game it will normally play with no cheats but if i select the last disc in multidisc list then it will load code breaker and when codebreaker needs the cd inserted i can just cycle the SD card and have disc 1 load?

Another random question, can I have . in folder names like

Code: Select all

S.W.A.T/disc.bin
?

Yes, if you eject and insert the SD Card again in MULTIDISC mode, it will cycle back to the first disc image.

Hmm, "S.W.A.T" as a folder name should work fine. If it doesn't let me know.

What about

Code: Select all

!
in folder names?

Or a better question, what should be avoided in folder names?
I have all my .img files named as disc.img to keep things short and tidy.

Exclamation marks should be fine. Just avoid non-ASCII characters.

I separated all my games into folders on my PC, 1 CD games all the way to Riven 5 CDs.

Then I made a MULTILIST.LST for each of those categorised folders.

1 CD Games

Code: Select all

disc.bin
../ZZ Cheat CD/disc.bin
2CD Games

Code: Select all

disc1.bin
disc2.bin
../ZZ Cheat CD/disc.bin
...ect
All my games are named disc.bin to keep things simple and names short and correct.

Then I ran this batch script to place MULTILIST.LST in every folder

Code: Select all

@echo off
for /D %%a in ("path-to-folder\*.*") do xcopy /y /d path-to-file\file.FileExt "%%a\"

It works perfectly! Now I can use Codebreaker with ease, just tap circle a couple of times, and all my Multi Disc games are setup and can cheat too.
I just wish there was a faster way to switch to other cheat CDs like Action Replay or GameShark.

For now I have to take the SD card out, put it in my PC and swap out the .bin in my ZZ Cheat CD folder if I want to change.

Why not have multiple cheat discs in the multidisc.lst?

Say I did that, after choosing my cheats id have to cycle the SD card slot X amount of times till i bypassed the other cheat cds, landed on my game cd then press enter on the cheat cd.

The added wear and tear on the SD card slot and IO port isnt worth it, plus my memory sucks and id always run past the damn 1 disc or end up loading another cheat cd lol.

How does the SD card slot detect a cycle? Can i wire a momentary on the power feed??

You could use USB and stream games by your computer. That's another possibility. You can manually swap discs using the Systems Console program for Windows.

Which gameshark version are you using? I'm having trouble getting this to work the same way as you did, mine always crashes when selecting the cheat disc. Only way I've got it to work is to put the cheat disc in the same folder as the games. Help would be appreciated!

I use Game Shark v5.0.
I find it the quickest to load, and it can save custom cheats on the memory card.
