Using Actionreplay/Gameshark with a modchip?
Howdy fellas, I am actually quite new to the PS2 scene at all (I just purchased my first PS2 a few weeks ago) and am wondering how a chip modifies your console's abilities to change variables within the game (I.E.- cheat)?
I think to use it without a modchip, you have to use something like a swap disc combined with a USB toggle or something like that? Or is there a newer way? Anyway, that's beside the point- I'm wondering how a modchip installed would affect that. Do certain chips have features built in to use cheats right off the bat? Or do they allow for booting of a cheating disc without the use of an additional USB toggle or other attached device?
I apologize, it might seem childish, but I just completed FFX and I'm in no rush to waste another 60 hours on the sequel without some assistance.
I have a Crystal Chip on a v15. (0040)
Thanks in advance for any help you can give me!
