There is an easy way to cheat your game in PCSX2 without having to search the codes manually yourself. Basically we use Gameshark codes, RAW or Action Replay MAX (ARM) codes in PCSX2 which is easier and aplenty to search with your preferred search engine.
You have to pay me $1000 for that! Kidding
Here we go…
How to use Gameshark or RAW codes in PCSX2 :
Run PCSX2 and your game
press ESC and click Misc –> Patch Browser and you’ll have this window
Just click Add GS2v3-4 to add Gameshark codes to pcsx2 or click RAW to add RAW codes
After all codes inputted, click exit
to continue the game click Run –> Execute
How to use Action Replay MAX codes in PCSX2 :
With ARM codes things got little complicated, just a little. Don’t worry I’ll guide you.
PCSX2’s patch browser doesn’t include add ARM button, we have to find a way around. And all we need is Maxconvert, it’s a PlayStation 2 Code Conversion Program i.e. : Raw, Max Raw, AR Raw, Gameshark and CB code converter.
This program is simple to use, as simple as clicking the convert button. Below is a screenshot of Maxconvert when I was converting AR MAX codes for Shin Megami Tensei: Persona 3 FES’ infinite money.
In the left area, choose your input type that is AR MAX and put the codes. In the right area choose the output that is RAW. Then click Convert. That’s it.
If you download Maxconvert there’s a Help file to guide you through.
After you got the RAW code use the PCSX2’ patch browser to insert the code.
