    I've recently got myself a Vita, since there's not much out for it yet and I never owned a PSP before, I got me some PSP games from the PSN store and am playing those.

    One of them is Fate/Extra and it's starting to frustrate me a little, as it involves lots of boring grinding. Now I've seen people over at gamefaqs ask for other people to edit their save files so that certain cheats (like 999 skill points, all items, money or even skin changes) would be included in the save files.

    Now my first question would be, what does it take to edit a PSP save file? I tried googling a bit and found some kinds of save editors for specific games, but not a general save game editor, so I'm guessing each game's save file does have individual values that one needs to work with or something like that? So, if you can't easily open a save game and change stuff in there, does it mean one would require a PSP with CFW & a cheat database to enable cheats in a certain save file and then overwrite it so someone else can use it on their PSP/PS Vita? Are there other ways to edit stuff in the save file? I've got to admit tho, that I'm not really skilled with hex editors, so if it's really complicated and requires a lot of trial & error then it's probably best to not even try explaining it to me, as I do not want anyone waste their time by trying to explain something to me that I'll surely not understand. ;>

    I also couldn't even find any of the cheats for Fate/Extra, neither via google nor on the cheats.gbatemp forum, so do any even exist? I mean, if someone on gamefaqs adds them to other people's saves they must exist, right? I didn't bother downloading the cheat database, as I wouldn't even know what to do with it anyway, but if someone knows if it also encludes cheats for Fate/Extra, any info would be much appreciated. If there's no other way, I could at least ask my little bro if some of his friends have a hacked PSP I could borrow for a bit so I can add some skill points to my archer, so I won't have to grind as much anymore, I'd need to know if such cheat is available before trying that tho, so like I said, any info on that is appreciated. :)

    These only work with CWCheat so...i'm not sure if it helps or not but.

    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I'd imagine if you can make some permanent changes to your characters using the cheats on a CFW PSP, then if you save and transfer that save to the Vita is should carry those changes across. Of course the only way to see if it works is to try.

    Thanks a lot! The only code I'd be needing would be the 999SP one, it's good to see that one exists for CWCheat!
    Surely things like the "Show Enemy Actions" code won't work this way, but I guess using the SP cheat and add 999 to my Archer, then saving and loading the save on my Vita should work... guess I'll find out whenever I find someone with a hacked PSP! ^^


    I'm still interested in knowing if this would be possible via editing the save file as well tho.. :)

    No problem, I have CWCheat for my PSP and it works fine, I planned on using TempAR but somehow never got around to it plus i'm used to CWC anyway.

    I like to help out when I can.

    I only had a friend's PSP for about two weeks, since I imported Persona 3 Portable and wanted to play it badly, so he got my DS and I got his PSP until I was done with the game... I played around with the PSP a little, even upgraded his firmware but that was like 2 years ago and I never used any cheats, so I have no real idea how it works, hopefully it's as easy as using cheats on the DS Two card... ;>

    Its pretty easy. On my PSP all I need to do is load the game eg. fate/Extra and then hold select and then select the cheat I want to use, turn it on and then exit and then your done.

    But yea I bought a pre-owned PSP a few months ago and haven't put it down once.
