    can someone help me with this ? i load the plugin successfully but whenever i tried to search for a value it always come up no matches but the value i use is the money value in game.
    here is how i did it.
    Game: Dragon's crown
    money: 1909
    i open the cheat menu and chose 4 bit, i converted the 1909 to hex which is 0775, i put this 0775 to search value and do absolute search but nothing come up.
    what did i do wrong?
    and i heard of Ram Mode, but whenever i opened up the cheatlist it always MMC mode, how do i switch to Ram Mode ?

    Maybe is not hex but decimal? Also did you mean 4 bytes? as in 8 character text? EX (0xXXXXXXXX)

    I've not heard of rincheat.

    Anyways, I think money is usually 16 or 32 bit. It depends on the max value.
    8 bit = 255 max
    16 bit = 66535 max
    32 bit = 4294836225 max

    I've not heard of 4 bit cheating but then again I'm new to cheat making...

    8 bit = 1 byte
    16 bit = 2 byte
    32 bit = 4 byte.

    I think he meant 4 byte :P

    Is possible is programmed different ways.

    Not everything is common programmed. One thing you would see is for example.

    Current gold 9999
    So you would think to do decimal search of 2 bytes and search 9999 gold, with no result. You could think perhaps is hex and not dec so then do hex search and still no result. Well what else could it be?

    Well you have 9999 gold and you did the only two l.ogical things but perhaps try again. You noticed that 2 byte searches are looking for 2 addresses combined together EX( 0x2222-XXXX instead of 1 byte 0x444444-XX)

    So that is the difference, perhaps is not like that at all. It could be something very different and i seen it a few times but each address is it own nunber of the digit. See this example if you would look at a hex editor.
    0x22222220 09 09 09 09
    While the address is 0x22222220 With each number nine holding its own specific address as shown like this
    20 = 09
    21 = 09
    20 = 09
    22 = 09

    Hope it make sense. Some games actually do that i seen before which to me is mystery but is uncommon.

    Well when I try running RinCheat on my Vita, the menu doesn't open. Do only certain games work at the moment? I'm using Killzone: Mercenary. I followed the instructions well too but still nothing...

    I wouldn't know, is the first i heard of cheats for vita. The close i got to cheating on PS vita was using a save editor for ps3 called game genie by hyperkin on a game with cross platform play such as Blazblue continumm shift extend or metal gear solid or dragons crown. Since is a save editor for ps3 i used it on there then upload save to cloud then download on vita and continue. But That is all i know. This rincheat you metioned is the first i heard of it since waking up this morning 4 hours ago :P

    Download the beta1fix version from Github. I forgot to actually update the matches value ( https://github.com/Rinnegatamante/rinCheat/commit/bfa8542ad4f5ec5ed4c86f9b8dfcc0ba0d058930 )

    Oh okay then.:blink:
    Hopes that changes soon. I don't think people wanna dump a game already installed from PSN to just enable such features especially the game is like over 2GB on the memory card, another 2GB to dump and then 2GB to install.

    I downloaded this fix but still the same problem
    i tried both 2byte and 4 byte of the search value 0775 (1909 gold) no match show up
    i also tried a different game which is Dragon Ball Z Battle of Z, the currency value was 12000 which would be 2EE0, i searched for this value in the cheat system but no match show up again.

    Thank you for all of your hard work!!!

    You sure you actually downloaded the beta1_fix and not the beta1?

    Hi Rinnegatamante

    Thank you for the awesome tool!

    I want to swap out to a new larger memory card but I cant find the correct process for using Rincheats game save export feature. Is the following method correct?

    1. Export the game saves using Rincheat (Do you select which game save to export or does it export all game saves?)
    2. Install new memory card
    3. Reinstall games on new memory card (do we need to create a new in-game save to create the save location on the new memory card?)
    4. Import game saves using Rincheat

    Does Rincheat import the game save into the correct location automatically or do we need specify the correct location?

    Sorry if this all seems obvious but I have hunted for the correct process and want to make sure I get the correct method so I dont lose my save data

    Thank you in advance!!
