    So I updated to 6.60 proc2 as recommended, and everything works great.
    I'm new to all this but the only homebrew/mod stuff I installed was the CWCHEAT files, and it's in the right location, and it's set for PSP (with the line for PSP go removed)

    When I get to a game, I wait till it's at a normal point in the game (non cutscene) and holding select brings up the cheat list for the game and it looks fine.

    I've tried turning on ONE cheat, for a few different games, and the screen freezes as soon as I click the activate button, and after about 30-45 seconds, the PSP automatically does a self shutdown.

    So what am I doing wrong? Running a somewhat recent cheat file from a few months ago on a PSP 2000 btw.

    Thanks!

    Odds are that the cheats are bad. I'd suggest getting a db file from a better source.

    Shoot. Oh well. Strange how the correct game data and cheat list are showing for each game. This is the first time I started using CW CHEAT. Are the databases different for PSP models, or CFW types, or it should be all good2go regardless?

    There's no way to tell if cheats are good...them showing up in the list is just due to them being named correctly. A bad cheat causes your PSP to shut down most of the time because the memory keeps working away trying to execute the cheat until there's nothing left.

    If you got the database from an ISO site, then perhaps think about searching for your own so you know they're good. Half the time those sites just take content from other places without checking it works.

    Sorry if I'm on the wrong page but I'm kinda stuck on this. I have a psp 2001 with 2g running 6.60 B 10. Now the problem is that when i put new cheats in they don't seem to show up but the data base brings up others.
    EX. I play breath of fire 3 and all the v=cheats pop up if i then play saga frontier which i manually had to enter in they won't show. Now I've done all my research fairly needed and have the serial matching the game and what not Help me if anybody can

    Start Saga Frontier. Then bring up the CWCheat menu and copy down the Game ID that CWCheat displays at the top of the menu. That's the ID you need in your Cheat db for the game so double check it matches.

    So I tried another cheat.db file from a forum site that is exclusively PSP/VITA support and the cheat.db was from one of the main stickied threads. Tried a bunch of games and only selecting one cheat at a time. As soon as I press select to load/apply the cheats, PSP blinks like crazy until memory runs out and does a hard shutdown.

    Do I have some setting wrong? I have the cwcheat folder under SEPLUGINS, which is on the root.
    in SEPLUGINS, I have the game.txt file with this line in it: ms0:/seplugins/cwcheat/cwcheat.prx (I also tried: ms0:/seplugins/cwcheat/cwcheat.prx 0) but the zero doesn't seem to matter)

    The plugins are active from the "Hold R when booting up" menu, so I don't think that's an issue.
    Any ideas?

    Have you disabled all your other plugins and tested CWCheat alone? I don't have a PSP running 6.60 PRO C so i can't double check myself but i'd suggest trying to isolate the plugin and then downloading a different one just to check your plugin isn't bad. In fact we have it here

    I did a double check and everything matches to the T. I think it's something to do with the update and editing the file. Whenever I open Cheat db and pops in notepad everything seems according. I know for a fact these codes work. Tried it on a psp 1001 6.60 me and they work fine

    Try the CWCheat database editor and see if it makes any difference.

    So I guess for whatever reason, I got CW CHEATS working. Basically, I was starting a game, going to the cheat menu and doing the following:
    1.turning on cheats (first option)
    2.selecting just one cheat
    3. Press "Select" (To Save Database)
    And then the PSP freezes and does a hard shutdown as soon as I press select.

    I THOUGHT the cheats were not active unless I hit select. What I needed to do was Step 1-3 and then.
    4. Press "O" to return to main cheat menu
    5. Go down to "Return to Game" and press X (Most cheats seem to work after this)

    I have no idea what the "select - to save database" thing is good for besides locking up the PSP. Can someone explain the purpose to me?

    Thanks!

    I say why cwcheat crash your PSP because a big use 100% of CPU if you enable a cheat the game want more power
    and for the little game use ~23-40% you can enabled 10 cheat and more



    sorry if you don't understand but i'm french i know write good
