Gran Turismo PSP How to Hybrid Cars
PSP with Custome Firmware Installed, Gran Turismo PSP US Copy, CWCheat 2.3
This will only work on the US Copy the Euro & Japan copies have different coding (slightly) & we haven't looked into figuring out the difference yet, maybe somebody with a Euro copy can use the info provided to uncover the codes to allow this on those versions of the game.
Hybriding has come to GT PSP. Hybriding refers to Cars that have been altered with parts from other cars & or has had its Performance increased through coding. A RX7 with a Corvette engine or a Prius with a Veyron Engine for example. Hybriding is not limited to Engines; other components can be swapped, like suspensions, LSD’s, Divetrtains and others.
Also on top of switching parts, you can also perform Stage 3 Weight reductions, Install a Racing Clutch & Install Adjustable Downforce. Coupled with the Already fully adjustable Suspentions in GT PSP and you can make cars that are quite close to their GT4 Fully Modified counterparts.
My good man known as “Hardtofind” from GTPlanet is the Guy who uncovered & Decoded the codes that make hybriding in GT PSP possible. Give it up for Hardtofind for uncovering this.
Unfortunately only the US version hybriding codes have been uncovered and for the Euro edition of the game these codes will not work.
This can be done with CWCheat or a PR cheat Device. I am only familiar with the Process using CWCheat. The process for PR devices will not be covered.
How to get the code for a part that you want
There are 2 ways to obtain the part codes. One is to use the Part codes from GT4. GT PSP shares a large portion of its car list with GT4. Any part code from GT4 will work in GT PSP so long as the car is available in GT PSP. The other way is to use the Disassembler option in CWCheat to get the codes manually.
Using the Part codes from GT4
Fortunately the part codes are the same for GT4, so we can use the codes from GT4 on our GT PSP cars and they work. However if you use the codes from GT4 they need to be altered in order to work. This is very easy to do. The codes are 4 digits for example “1A 2B”. To use the code in GT PSP we simply need to reverse the first 2 digits with the last 2. So our example becomes “2B 1A”.
Getting the Part codes from GT PSP manually
We use CWCheat to manually search for the desired part code, and we can use this method to find any cars part code. With CWCheat 2.3 you have an option in the main menu called “Cheat Searcher” In here is the Disassembler, the tool we use to find the codes for a part that we want. We need to go to the address of the Part and take note of the Part code. It’s as simple as that.
How To Use the Disassembler to Find part Codes
First you need to have CWCheat 2.3 enabled, and then enter the game. From the main menu in CWCheat select the “Cheat Searcher” option, then in the menu that opens there will be a “disassembler “option. Select this to start searching forparts.
Once in the Disassembler, you will see a line for Address and next to the address will be a line for value. We need to go to the address of the part we want then take note of the value as the value is the code.
The address is broken into 2 parts 0000000. In XXXX000, X is the Primary address & 00000XXX is the secondary address. Using D-pad left or right will increase or decrease the Main Address by 1 when hitting the R & L triggers will move it by 10 at a time. Holding the D-pad or triggers will make the address change faster. To change the Secondary Address push D-pad up or D-pad down. All theparts codes are found at the same main address ( 146B000), once there only the secondary part of the address needs to be changed to find the codes we need. Each part has its own address.
