    As the title says what are the reccommended plugins for the PSP. I've alrady got CXMB and I wouldn't mind more. And if it matters I've got a PSP 1k on 5.50 Gen Prome-4.

    Aside from a love hate relationship with CXMB i only use two.

    Popsloader and CWCheat (purely for the text reader and ability to modify clockspeed in game and possibly take screenshots.)

    I prefer CMFusion to CWCheat, it's got more tools on it (such as save states and picture viewing).

    JoySens to alleviate the symptoms of a fucked-up analog stick.

    PSNLover to get on PSN.

    Ultimate VSH Menu to disable the gameboot splash.

    Rydian: do you have a linky to CMFusion? Kind of interested on that.

    BTW, can you also search the RAM to make yor own cheats in CMFusion?

    Thanks!

    Save state is "memory management", dumping memory is saving state and uploading memory is loading state. Since it does the entire PSP's memory (not just the game, you should be careful on this and not load up old states (ESPECIALLY not after you change firmwares).

    And yes, it's got RAM search.

    I was also pretty defensive for cwcheat until raing talked me into trying out CMF. It really is a cleaner, more functional, and flat out superior plugin all around. It has a few flaws, but far less than cwcheat.

    Ultimately the choice depends on how you want to handle cheats. CWcheat has that single giant database of cheats with new ones being appended on to the end. This was nice when there was a database being managed and if you don't ever change anything. If you added your own or customized any of it, you would have to manually change it all back each time you update or lose it all.

    CMF has a few methods, primarily individual cheat files sorted by ID. This makes it so much easier to make changes or add new games without affecting everything else, but it's much more space consuming. It will probably displease anybody trying to get the most out of their 2GB Pro Duo card.

    It also stores a table of 100 'slots' that you can save to which has been great for creating my own cheats and retaining them to non-PSP games. I've put together cheat databases for a bunch of the SNES, GBA, etc games that I play and loading them by name makes it very simple.

    I'm just disappointed with some aspects of it. After searching for values with CWcheat, you could add them all and it would retain the existing values by default. For some reason you have to set them manually in CMF, which is a huge nuisance if you're adding a massive number. If you're searching for relative values, it only gives you three options on the first search (, or !=) There's also the issue of the font missing characters for on-screen instructions, so I feel half blind trying to figure out the controls.

    CMF has all of that, plus much more, and it just flat out works better and has a nicer interface.

    How can you get nicer than just simple black and white script? I'd wager the memory imprint is probably smaller with CWCheat too.

    "Nicer" != "Simpler".

    It would take all of ten minutes to see for yourself.

    I don't blame you though. I used to be you, up until I bothered to actually install it and see for myself.

    Of course not. Just stick with something obsolete while the rest of the world passes you by.

    How do you like lugging around that five pound mobile phone circa 1986? The one with the battery contained in a backpack. It still makes calls just as well as any iPhone, right?

    Just tried it and it's gimped for my main use....why is the text reader windowed? CWCheat uses a full width display (and black and white) whilst the CMF reader seems awful in comparison. Admittedly it's nice to browse to your files and the menu seems more functional but CWCheat is better for text which is my main use.

    Plus it just corrupted my Memory Stick.....which has never happened to me ever before.

    CWcheat isn't obsolete.
    I used CMF myself (Not anymore, since I got my PSP Go I didn't feel the need to get it again) but I don't shove it down someones throat when I see someone using CWcheat.
