Modifications

From PSP2i Wiki

Modifications refer to various patches, replacements or changes to Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity that aim to improve the gameplay experience. These modifications range from 60 FPS patches, texture replacements, the ability to play online-only missions in ad hoc multiplayer, and more.

Many of these patches are achieved through modifying the game's memory through cheat codes. None of these codes directly impact gameplay, and the Phantasy Star Portable 2 Infinity Wiki will never provide any actual cheat codes for the purpose of cheating.

Below you may find a compilation of the various patches that are compatible with each platform and how install them.

PlayStation Portable[edit | edit source]

Cheat File Patches

What you will need:

  • Cheat Files for PSP - This is TempAR for the PSP with a cheat database for PSP2i included. If you are already familiar with TempAR, download the cheats by themselves here, and do not follow the instructions below, as you should already be familiar with how to set this up. Credits go to JamRules for the cheats contained in this package.
  1. Extract the seplugins folder to the PSP's root directory (e.g. D:/ or E:/ when connected to your PC)
  2. Boot PSP2i on your PSP, then press the PS Logo and R Button together to bring up the TempAR menu.
  3. Turn the cheats you want on/off as appropriate. Take care not to enable conflicting cheats.
  4. Press the ♪ button until it displays [CHEATS ON] in the top right.
  5. Press R twice to navigate back to the [PRX] menu, scroll down to Save Settings, press the cross button, then exit TempAR with the circle button. This will make the cheats persist on reboot.

Windows PC[edit | edit source]

Depending on your method of PPSSPP installation, you will have to extract some of these folders to different locations.

  • Zip install: You installed PPSSPP through extracting the files from a .zip. This will create a /memstick/ folder in your PPSSPP folder, which contains most files in the PSP folder inside of it.
  • Installer: You installed PPSSPP using an installer. This will create a PPSSPP folder in your documents, which contains the PSP folder, which contains most files.
Original PSP Font

What you will need:

  1. Extract the assets folder to your PPSSPP executable's directory, regardless of installation method. Do not extract this to the PPSSPP folder in your documents.

PPSSPP renders with a custom font taken from your PC, rather than the original PSP fonts. This can make a lot of the text placement ingame seem strange, as all games (and the english patch) are designed with the original PSP font in mind.

This will restore the original font to the emulator, making all games display as intended.
Cheat File Patches

What you will need:

  • Cheat File for Windows PC - Contains all cheat file patches for Windows PC. Credit goes to JamRules for the codes listed in here.
  1. Install as below depending on your PPSSPP installation.
    1. Zip install: Extract the PSP folder to your memstick folder in your PPSSPP directory.
    2. Installer: Extract the PSP folder to your PPSSPP folder in your documents.
  2. In PPSSPP, click Game settings, then Enable cheats.
  3. Boot up PSP2i, click Emulation, then Pause.
  4. Click Cheats, and a list of all the patches for the game will appear. Turn them on/off as desired. Note that any similar codes will conflict with each other!

Android[edit | edit source]
