Hi,

In order to continue the widescreen topic from assembler games forum. Here my save :

I tried to put the games in alphabetical order.

This is a save I did, just before the AG forum went down. I copy all the codes from around 80 pages of the topic.
I saved only the hex code because the game shark and action replay codes are list in other forum like here :

So that I know there is at least two games which needs an update for their hex patch :
Solidier of fortune and Shadow man

Esppiral posted a widescreen hex patch for Soldier of fortune, which seems to work fine but it hides or make invisible the crosshair and playing without one is impossible for me. Can someone here inform @Esppiral so he can look for a solution. Would be awesome to finally play Sof in 16:9 on the dreamcast

Hex code :
Code:
Soldier of Fortune
Code:
FIND
00 00 BE 42
REPLACE
00 00 DC 42
FIND
3C A6 27 8C C8 87 24 8C D4 1A 14 8C 00 00 20 41 B4 24
REPLACE
00 A6 07 8C C8 87 24 8C D4 1A 14 8C 00 00 20 41 B4 24

Shadow man hex code have clipping Espirral have done a render fix but the kinematic are beyond understanting with textures bugs. the big problem that is unplayable in first person for shooting.

Code:
Shadow Man v1.002 (1999)(Acclaim)(PAL)(M4)
(track05)
Code:
find
09003CC7 08F78DF5 3BD23CC7 08F65CF4 28F83BD4 3BD00B40 9DF936C7
replace
8DF53CC7 08F77CF9 3BD23CC7 08F65CF4 28F83BD4 3BD00B40 63F936C7
Code:
find
00002044 F8022C8C 4897018C F0012C8C
replace
00805544 F8022C8C 4897018C F0012C8C
render fix Espirral
find
0B 40 14 74 FF 88 70 8D 03 6E E8 2E 39 89 D3 60
replace
0C 40 14 74 FF 88 70 8D 03 6E E8 2E 39 89 D3 60

Render fix Fafadou
find
0B 40 14 74 FF 88 70 8D 03 6E E8 2E 39 89 D3 60
replace
09 00 14 74 FF 88 70 8D 03 6E E8 2E 39 89 D3 60

With my render fix the kinematic are good and we can zoom well, but there is some little clipping in the game that we don't have with Espirral render fix...
I think it's possible to do a perfect hex patch, but I don't know the issue...

I'm sorry to report two Espirral's hex patch little problem, I'm really gratefull for all he had done, it's an amazing work. I want to highlight his work a new time, he deserves well :) like all hex patch maker (megavolt85 etc...) I'm sorry to forgot most of them).

Glad to see this topic rise from the ashes! So you find these codes with Cheat Engine?

As I share on dreamcast-talk forum here my best combo for Grandia II, widescreen more 60 FPS for fightings
I used the @megavolt85 hex patch thanks to him.
I removed the widescreen during paused and main menu, because there is a glitch with the back front. For me it's not important, hope it will be same for you ;-)
The 60FPS patch removed the little clipping when you finish a fight, may there is a little few, but I didn't notice, for me, it's very good !
The last glitch is during the fight menu : you can see behind the image that doesn't move when an item is selected. Nothing serious.

Hi, I have problem with widescreen for ecco, I have the codebreaker code for removing the black bars, but I wish to convert it in hex code. How can I do that please :
Code:
ECCO THE DOLPHIN DEFENDER OF THE FUTURE, E, MK-5103350 V1.003
Hex Patch
Value 1 (2 times)
Find
0000403f 0000c842
Replace
0000103F 0000c842
Value 2
Find
3B354B47 EBF766C9 8870F749
Replace
3B354B47 EBF766C9 daa5d949


Gameshark code :
No Black Bars
Code:
02328C5C->00000280

Code:
ECCO THE DOLPHIN DEFENDER OF THE FUTURE, E, MK-5103350 V1.003
codebreaker
Code:
02275418->49D9A5DA
02040E68->3F100000
02040D1C->3F100000
No Black Bars
Code:
02328C5C->00000280

The number of right are the replacing datas in big endian instead of little endian in hacks.
The number of left are the adress in main .bin with an offset but I don't see what exactly is ?...
the adresses 0x265418, 0x030E68, 0x030D1C are good in the main.bin but if I did the same for removing the black bars :
0x318c5c it takes me beyond the end of datas in main.bin...

I still don't understand how to convert the adress of codebreaker to a hex code.

But I try this hex code for RECVX or kazenban import from classic RECV version and it's just fabulous :
RESIDENT EVIL CODE VERONICA X
WIDESCREEN HEX PATCH
1ST_READ.BIN or track03.bin
Code:
Find
C8A60200 A245963F 6436148C 6836148C
Replace
C8A60200 7368613F 6436148C 6836148C

is it possible to have widescreen + 60fps battles in Grandia 2 US as a codebreaker code?

Also is there a Shenmue 1 and 2 (Pal) widescreen codes for codebreaker with no clipping in the additional 16:9 area?

Grandia 2
There is a code breaker code in the list but I don't know if it works also for US version :
60 fps battles. for the pal version.
02300010----00140000

shenmue 2: I don't know if you can find a code breaker for shenmue I & II...
For me there are too many things to patch codebreaker.

But there is already full patch with no clipping version @Esppiral has done a fantastic job :

The passport with internet pack enable 16/9 widescreen hacks :


Or here for shenmue II english speech 16/9 no black bars no clipping in game:

You can pick the 1ST_READ.BIN and repack the game you want (PAL/US for shenmue I/JAP with english or JAP voices)
And the format you want (cdi or gdi)

would it be possible to add code-breaker 16:9 codes for:

Border Down NTSC-J
Guilty Gear X NTSC-J
Virtual On Oratorio Tangram NTSC-J

also don't know if it's possible due to "tate" aspect ratio, what about:

Ikaruga NTSC-J
Psyvavriar 2 NTSC-J
Under Defeat NTSC-J

For Ikaruga I found this for codebreaker :

Ikaruga​
JAP​
02C0CFA0 3F400000​

Nothing for others request I'm sorry.
Only horizontal view

For under defeat there is simply nothing beyond the screen, @Esppiral tried to look at already.


A MagForce widescreen racing will be great !

Imho the best DC multiplayer game of all time.

4 players + OSAKA = never ending fun =)

We used to call it Mettwurst (a kind of german sausage, any germans here?) bcs it sounds very similar. Even today when meeting some old friends they still ask for a round of Mettwurst. Other people hearing it are quite confused. It sounds a bit filthy if one guy asks another for a round of sausage. xD

If I had one wish it would be the ws code for this game. Word!

A real hidden gem...

Thank you for Ikaruga!! I'll try it soon :D

I see, so no hope for Under Defeat, it's also understandable, Under Defeat really pushed the DC so that's why there is nothing beyond the screen.

Any hope for Border Down in future? It's one of my most wanted for 16:9.

Hello again
I tried the code with codebreaker on original hardware but no luck.
Maybe I'm missing something, but unfortunately nothing changes.

Maybe this code must be used with another code system like gameshark...
I'm in front of the wall of misunderstanding...
