FBA "Practice Mode?"


#1

Hi.

For the past year or so CVS2 was my main game. I recently relocated to an area (Beijing) where no one plays CVS2, and 3S is the big Street Fighter. I don’t have a PS2 with me currently, so my best practice option is my laptop.

Is there a way to rig up a practice mode in FBA? Like infinite meter and/or life? I’d like to be able to practice execution a little before next weekend.

Thanks in advance for any help you might offer.

Edit: I should add, I’ve had bad luck with GGPO over here. Every time I’ve logged on I’ve had pretty bad lag even playing people in Japan. So GGPO as a practice tool is probably of limited help to me.

The FBA that comes with GGPO seems to have cheats disabled entirely. You’d have to get a different version of FBA.

Easier way would be to get MAME, and grab the MAME cheat file from:http://cheat.retrogames.com/

Then you could turn on the cheats in MAME and practice. To do the same in FBA would require either finding a converter to convert MAME cheats to FBA cheats, or manually entering them into FBA

Is it possible to patch CPS2 roms with cheats permanently? I know there are programs to do this with SNES and NES roms, so it’s certaily possible, I just don’t know if there are programs to do it with arcade games.

Here are some cheats I found manually through mame and then converted to FBA. Make a sfiii3n.ini file in the cheats folder and paste the following:


cheat "Infinite Time"
default 0
0 "Disabled"
1 "Enabled", 0, 0x2011377, 0x64

cheat "Infinite Health P1"
default 0
0 "Disabled"
1 "Enabled", 0, 0x2068D0B, 0xA0

cheat "Infinite Super P1"
default 0
0 "Disabled"
1 "Enabled", 0, 0x20695B5, 0x90

cheat "Infinite Health P2"
default 0
0 "Disabled"
1 "Enabled", 0, 0x20691A3, 0xA0

cheat "Stun P2"
default 0
0 "Disabled"
1 "Never Stun", 0, 0x2069611, 0x00
1 "Perma Stun", 0, 0x2069611, 0x72

Then just load the game and hit ctrl+f1 to access cheats. I play with these on FBA Enhanced, so I don’t know if they work in other variations of FBA.

Sweet, thanks for the help guys.

Hey, I made the cheat ini file and the cheats show up in FBA. But when I enable any of them I get an error:

Guru Meditation #c0000005.0052FAD

Any ideas?!

I’ve been trying this and I’m getting this same error. Anyone know a fix?


#11

The cheats given above used to work for a previous version of FBA but now make crash the latest engine apparently !
Now I upgraded to MAME 0.126, appreciated the perfect CPS3 emulation (CPU=1.6 GHz Celeron), won’t use FBA any time soon I think, and am already enjoying the cheats for training.


#12

Yea it’s easier just to use Mame


#13

Got any of these for ssf2t? I’m having a hard time finding any.


#14

Works with FBA-RR as well…


#15

Just download a cheats file and find the ssf2t.xml file in the .zip. You should be able to follow the format enough to turn it into an .ini just like the post#4 did.


#16

Wait? FBA supports CvS2?
