PS1 Stealth add-on completed!
I have good news, I have received some samples of the final code of the PS1 stealth add-on for all direct boot mods.
I have installed it in DC2 KiD's unit and it works great.
Dino Crisis U/C NTSC original - booted and no red circle!
DDR Jap NTSC Original - booted and no red circle!
This chip should work on ALL PS1 games that have mod protection. This is why it will work:
Each game has either an algortithmic or a set number of times that it will ask for the region code from the disc. It also differs for each game, that's why this add-on has to monitor signals from the DVD controller. Once it hears the request for region code, and the number of code requests, the chip fills the exact number that is needed, no more, no less. Current direct boot mods continuously inject region code until you turn off the console, and since the disc only asks for a set number, if it gets more than it requested, it will go to red circle screen.
- Turn on console in PS1 mode as described by the direct boot instructions.
- Insert disc and close the tray. Tap reset once to boot the game.
To load another game while in PS1 mode:
- Eject the game that is being played.
- Insert new game, close the tray and tap reset.
Multi-disc game compatible - MGS, Parasite Eve, etc.
All current direct boot mods!
A sample is also being sent to LOD for 3rd party independent testing.
