for Grand Theft Auto: Liberty City & Vice City Stories PSP

The original CheatDevice by Edison Carter was one of the first homebrews ever to run on firmwares 2.01, 2.5 and 2.6! It had a big fan base and lots of functionality added over time. Sadly the Liberty City version wasn't updated and thus missing out on fixes after Vice City Stories' release etc.

After over 15 years later, with this remastered version I re-created the whole project from ground up whenever I had some freetime. It is one plugin for both Stories Games now and compatible with all versions!! (excluding the Japanese releases)

Original

Remastered


When booting the game it will take a little longer to start as thats where all the magic happens. Once in-game, just like with the original, the menu can be opened and closed by pressing L + UP. And when saving your cheat preferences from the menu a config file will be created which automatically re-loads everything the next time you start the game. But there really is so much more so why don't you go take a look yourself..

Happy Cheating! :)



Changes & new features

Aside from my own discoveries re-creating everything, lots of functions that were previously only available via UserCheats were added as default ones. Due to all these new options, categories were added as well as the menu adjusted to scroll instead of using pages. These are the major and most noteworthy new functions:


Improvements to the original:
  • now works with all game versions (except JP)
  • now works with High Memory Layout & other plugins
  • navigating the menu will not affect game controls
  • now utilizing the games fonts & blocking UI elements
  • getting names & texts directly from memory
  • expanded & enhanced HexEditor
  • no more menu flickering!!
  • lots of fixes & improvements
  • ...
  • New Features:
  • skipable Intro Movies
  • Character Model swapping
  • completely disable traffic and pedestrians
  • FreeCamera
  • Map & MiniMap options
  • Speed'O'meter
  • makes German version uncut again
  • Pickup & Vehicle spawner
  • real random loadscreens!
  • advanced Editors for stats, settings etc
  • UserScripts
  • ...


  • But.. Why?!

    As a child I loved playing with the CheatDevice and seeing this menu loaded via a simple savefile was like dark magic to me.. So I swore myself to understand and learn how to achieve this myself someday. Over the last years I worked on this little project whenever I had some freetime on & off. I am surely no expert in C or reverse engineering but this project helped and I learned a lot. I never intended to release this initially but why keep it for myself. I bet one or two nostalgic oldtimers might have some fun with this just like me.
