Topic: [ADDED][PSX] GameShark Unlisted Items (The BigWave Collection)

So it looks like what I thought were needed GameShark items are actually unlisted items, so not only new dumps, new items to add in!

The BigWaveCDs will be archived sometime this week. Funny story about them; when I worked for GameShark, BigWave 2 and 3 were the first retail pieces I got to work on outside of the GameShark Magazine. Upon getting #3, a sense of deja vu kicked in and after going back and forth, discovered Interact almost sent subscribers the exact same disc twice in a row...out of 4 possible. It was 2's code list on 3's Master Disc. Good times. Good, long gone times.

Anyway...

Nice work. Didn't know you worked for GameShark badass!

Big Wave 2 is missing .dat file.

The Action Replay disc hashes indeed match my dump here http://redump.org/disc/45126/

Code Breaker doesn't match this one http://redump.org/disc/8996/
Not surprised, unlicensed discs have many revisions with little documentation (or serial number) to differentiate.

Re: [ADDED][PSX] GameShark Unlisted Items (The BigWave Collection)

Yeah, two years about. I was the editor of GameShark Magazine for a while. Was the best two years of my life job wise.
Miss .dat? Curious, I'll check tomorrow when I prep the archive.

I think the PS2...Code Breaker?...actually uses Crazy Taxi's SLUS number for it's boot sector. There was some crazy crap going on in those days. Oddly enough, the present day Action Replay for the 3DS boots as a Pokemon game, which they actually got permission from Nintendo to do.

Re: [ADDED][PSX] GameShark Unlisted Items (The BigWave Collection)

Ha that's amusing, glad they had fun with it.

Soooo many unlicensed PS2 discs... very much a rabbit hole. PS1 is much more manageable, but many rare ones too smile

Re: [ADDED][PSX] GameShark Unlisted Items (The BigWave Collection)

Dangerboy:

Thanks for these submissions! Big Wave 2 is still missing the .dat file.

Thanks again!
