Yep, mode 6. I made a mistake. I will edit my post and ask Jay-Jay to edit front page as well.
I have noticed a pixelation bug when IGR is enabled using OPL SMB Setup. So, it doesn't really matter whether widescreen code is applied or not, as degradation will occur if IGR is enabled only.
Ah, ok, is very rare really, thanks for the clarification.
ArgonUK, I just did the hex edit method you sugested! I loaded the patched image through lan and it worked! The game was in widescreen! I also tryed the ps2rd method on the same unpatched image and it didn't so there might be something wrong with my ps2rd setup but what? It looks ok! :-S Please have a look and tell me if you see something strange...
"Champions of Norrath /ID SLUS_205.65"
"Devil May Cry /ID SLUS 202.16"
"Dirge of Cerberus: Final Fantasy VII /ID SLUS_214.19"
"Kingdom Hearts /ID SLUS_203.70"
Why do you want ps2rd instead of .elf hack? Usually, if elf hack is available, nobody is looking for ps2rd hack...
Anyway, without elf I can't check if mastercode is correct, but for widescreen code try this:
"Kingdom Hearts /ID SLUS_203.70"
I have updated post with mastercode. Can't guarantee that it will work though, but the probability of that is high enough. The mastercode you have used was not in RAW format, but in codebreaker format. It seems that widescreen codes were converted to codebreaker format, too. See, Codebreaker 9.3 accepts both RAW and Codebreaker codes, ps2rd - only RAW codes, and mastercode first symbol should be "9". If it is "F", then it will work only with codebreaker.
Please, upload .elf of the game if code provided is not working for you.
How to say it correctly in English?
Please, upload .elf of the game if code provided 1. is not working/2. doesn't work/3. won't work for you. English gives me troubles sometimes. Thanks :)
OMG! It worked! Thanks ArgonUk! You are the man! The game now is widescreen and the AMVs as well!!! :D :D :D Thank you!
The reason I don't want the hex patch is because the game is already in my PS2 harddrive and I don't want to delete it and have it copyed in again. It will cause file fragmentation! Also if it is is widescreen format only, if I want to use an older 4:3 tv I can't. So I prefer it like that with ps2rd! It is more flexible!
p.s. I can't really help you with because English is also not my first language...
p.s.2 What do you mean by .elf file? When I open the image of the game with virtualclonedrive I can't see any .elf files... :(
I use ps2rd 0.5 unofficial + OPL 0.9 via FMCB to launch backups via SMB. I managed to set one game (Siren PAL) to 16:9 but now have problems with Persona 3 FES PAL (SLES_553.54). Here is what I'm doing:
1) I have PNATCH cheat [ patch=1,EE,207CD01C,word,3FE38E39 ] converted to ps2rd format [ 207CD01C 3FE38E39 ];
2) I have my mastercode [ 90508898 0C1421CE ] discovered both via ps2dis/mastercode finder/google;
3) I boot OPL, choose ps2rd, choose correct code and start OPL again, run backup. Game runs but screen hack is not applied.
a) PNATCH is incorrect or incorrectly converted. Checked on PCSX2, widescreen works. Converted code seems ok as it's just replacing value on single address;
b) Mastercode is incorrect. Don't think so, as it was acquired via three different methods. Also, I've tried several other codes with zero effect;
c) I need to use some kind of compatibility setting in OPL/ps2rd or game is just not supported.
Does anyone have experience with setting 16:9 to PAL version via ps2rd? It seems that I cannot make an .ELF patch as soon as my hex address is way higher than 0. So, if anyone have an idea how to get this working, please let me know.
I was glad to help you. Elf files don't have .elf extension on the disc. It is a file with a disc code - SLUS_203.70 in your case :)

Maybe you will be able to answer my question, too ;)

You can try this one, but it might work only with codebreaker 9.3 HDL patched
Try to find another mastercode using different methods: codeseek and ps2dis. Read FAQ on front page.
I might have founded master code for ps2rd:
Let me know if it works.
Yeah guys, if you get a code that is not displayed on front page working, then past it from cheats.txt and Jay-Jay will update the front page (hopefully) :) Comments are welcomed.
What was the question?

I've tried getting code via ps2dis (scesifsendcmd and stuff) - it is the code I've posted. Same code I'll get after using mastercode finder.
Codeseek gives me bunch of MNJs:
001950EC 0C1491FA F01950EC 0000000E
001950EC 0C1491FA F01950EC 000001FD
So I've tried:
901950EC 0C1491FA - not working
901950EC 0000000E - not working
901950EC 000001FD - not tried yet but it looks like a crappy one
I've also tried several googled codes:
980AF55A 78B6F42B - n/w
90199C88 00199C8B - n/w, looks like it's your first code
905148D0 0C144138 - n/w
And, unfortunately, HDL is not an option as I'm on slim 8(

I can post a link to the file here but is it ok? I'll just post it and if it is illegal just tell me to delete it... thanks. This file is unmodified..! The forum doesn't allow me yet to post links or send you PM so please remove the spaces I made
