Codebreaker with Burnout 3 on HD
Codebreaker with Burnout 3 on HD –
I use Code Breaker as my cheat device on the PS2 instead of the Action Replay Max. Why? Because ARMax sucks.
Now here's the problem that some of you could possibly help me with. I am running all my games off my hard drive because it's faster and more convenient for me instead of having to dig up a disc to put in my PS2. I own the official Burnout 3 disc, and Codebreaker codes work perfectly with it. If I try to use codes and play off the Hard Drive with HDLoader 0.7c , no codes take effect, like they were erased from memory. I've had success with codes with all my other games on the hard drive (actually, except Spider-Man 2 and Megaman Anniversary Collection), so why would Burnout 3's codes not work from HD?
I'm not certain of the precise reason for your particular case, but I do know some reasons that can have this effect. The most important thing to consider here is the fact that HDLoader needs to launch the game AFTER you have specified the cheats for it.

It's very hard to say what the results of that would be, for the generic case...
Some cheats rely on using various parts of memory (not used by the game) for scratchpad purposes. If any part of such memory blocks overlaps memory used by HDL, either for the program itself or during game launch, that cheat info will probably be lost.
There are many other complications possible, all mainly due to the fact that CodeBreaker (or any other cheater) was not designed to use HDLoader for the game launching, and therefore won't guard against those memory conflicts.
To the above, I should also add that I use CodeBreaker 7 myself, without major problems for the few things I've done with it. But I've only used it for a few game tests (mainly Disgaea and Final Fantasy X), so that doesn't say much about overall compatibiity.
