There were cheat engines for the PS1, just as there are for PS2, and they can still be used on the PS2 (like other PS1 programs). But they can not be run as disc-independent ELFs. That only works for PS2 programs.

So for PS1 cheating you are restricted to real discs, as neither the cheat engine nor the real game can be run from HDD.
On a side note however, I have never succeeded in playing FFT on my PS2
There sems to be some game-specific issue with the emulated video mode, as I get oddly coloured and misplaced sprites in many scenes. This could be dependent on my console being a PAL type though, while the FFT I have is an NTSC game. (I don't think it was ever released for PAL.)
All other NTSC games work fine for me, but not that one.

ahh, I have a Crystal Chip, and it doesnt give me any problems. Codebreaker doesn't work. What software will work for ps2 cheating with a crystal chip? I only get spam when I google around for it.
If you find a real PS1 Gameshark CDX, or Action Replay type cheat disc, you can use it to swap in PS1 backups/imports. My PS1 code archive cd that came with my PS2 Gameshark2 sometimes freezes on the insert disc screen after the swap, but I just push the x button again and the game boots up.
I thought I remembered finding my CDX and having it freeze my PS2.
