Code Hacking / Dev. equipment question
Code Hacking / Dev. equipment question –
I have seen on some sites around the net equipment for use with
the ps2 dev workstations, the model number for these is
'DTL-T14000' and while they are still very expensive (like 4 - 5
thousand) they seem more accessible to the public.....somewhat.
my question is would it be of any use in a standard pc to help
hack codes for ps2 (the equipment looks to be a pci card of
sorts). i ask because i might be able to get a hold of one and
would like to know if it would help me in any way. thanks for any
info anyone can come up with.....especialy positive info!!
Just use a hex dissasembler such as ps2dis or IDAPro

pci dev card –
These are really expensice ps2 console emulators with extra ram and are used with sony software(liscenced api libs and other). You would only want this if you were to write games or a program to work with a game (like trainers (par, gs12, and players of media). Other possibilities are use it for what some call bad things liek hacking games, heisting code for personal(not public of course) use. You are able to use it to do the exact same thing ps2dis can do, but it is not worth the price. If you have a chipped ps2, network or usb patch to a pc, and some kind of program or programming ide you have the same thing minus sony's pricey libraries of code. Many game developers write their own anyways.
So enough rambling, hope this gives you an idea of its use and value to your question.
And what if i got one for say around 80 bucks?? and can i use it with a standard pc hooked to a standard or chipped ps2??
if you got a USB cord(sharklink/xport) that can fit into your PS2 good luck!
80 dollars sounds too good to be true, maybe a psx dev card. xport or out of stock sharklink usb both work into one of the two usb ports on the ps2s(GMO). Also ethernet via naplink would work too.
If it is the real deal I would check it out in action before I laid down the money. More importantly ask for the software that origanally comes with it. These cards are used with a dev cond=sole that can burn cds as well and you can overcome that by burning cd-r, cd-rw, dv-r, and even dvd-rw WITH A CHIPPED console. I would definately go for this if it was
(of course a standard pc will work but should have i think 1 ghz processor minimum of 128 MB ram (333 mghz or close)
plenty HD for programs and of course a windows platform.
I have heard of Linux being used but you are on linux web looking for many unanswered questions there.
1. real ps2 dev card
2. software with it
3. a chipped console (dms or magic3.1+)
i like the magic 3.6 myself
If you get it let us know how it goes!
sounds like hella fun!

hey, as far as i can tell its real, but it doesn't have software to go with it. anyone know if i could d/l it (official or not) from somewhere or someone? i am gonna get it, for $80 it's worth the risk. i'll put pics up when i get it.
Oh i forgot to ask....i know this is not a full dev set up but i was wondering if you could actively check the ram values like while a game was running with this equipment....either connected to a ps2 or just on the pc itself.....thanks in advance for any info. (P.S. i know i am asking alot of questions, but what better way to learn than to ask you guys, some of the best info comes from the minds viewing this forum....lol - ego boost +10 / experience +21.
The card can do that for elf files run on your computer but I am not too sure about running a game unless you make a loader to do that. I have yet to see one one hte net, and am studying ot work on one myself. This is why everyone uses the dissassebler route for getting cheats.
