[TM2 PSX... HACKING W/O GS/AR?!]HOLY SHIT!

https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=UUE-GrkpjR-Ig43xT_GT0IjQ

Check out this guy's uploads playlist, look at some of the things he did!


Now it's possible to play as Dark Tooth WITH his head on! Doesn't seem to be functioning 100% properly yet, but instead he fires Sweet Tooth's standard up-and-down weaving homing napalm cones. Still cool how he did this, nonetheless~!


Looks like he also made it so you can play against Dark Tooth in a Challenge Match, granted yes you can use the GameShark code that forces the game to set the first CPU player to be Dark Tooth, but he doesn't have his head, nor does he have a special or his napalm cones. So he's practically useless unless you're playing against him in a challenge match in Hong Kong Krunch, where he actually DOES function properly. I even played against him as Sweet Tooth (my main) and Minion, it was quite amusing because Minion couldn't even render properly because Sweet Tooth, and Dark Tooth and the level itself was probably taking up too much memory cache and such as it is. Boy was it a challenge though.  Shocked


He also made a custom tournament set where you play Los Angeles, Moscow, Paris, Los Angeles: Roof Tops, Amazonia, NYC: Rooftops, Cyburbia, Holland, Florida: Suicide Swamp, and Hong Kong.

Me personally, when I was bored and didn't have internet access, I switched around the stages in the PC version, putting the stage files over each other and managed to make it so you can play the multiplayer exclusive secret stages in Tournament or Challenge Match. I even placed LA: Rooftops over Amazonia so it loads that as the fourth level and... sadly... the battle with Minion on this level isn't as glorious as it was in Twisted Metal 1, when he was the boss on that level. Not to mention since where it's placed the game won't kill you if you fall off the buildings but rather you can actually drive on the streets. What's stupid I observed is there's NO way to get back up on the rooftops, and the AI players can teleport to get on top of them and if you spawn down there when you begin the match, you're pretty much screwed.


Amusingly, he also seems to have made it so that you can have low gravity too. Last thing I should mention here is pretty easy to notice is that he increased the lives to 6, and moved them down to the bottom of the screen, while moving the health bar above the advanced attacks/energy bar.

Me personally I'm looking more into hacking the PC version of Twisted Metal 2, I'm fully aware skin replacement, model replacement (someone did this but they've been offline for ages) and sound replacement is possible. I personally would want to make it so that you can have new game modes like team-play, because if we could get Dark Tooth to work properly in the PC version of Twisted Metal 2 it'd be lots of fun to have one player as Dark Tooth on team 1 or 2 by him or herself, and there could be other players on the other team versing against the Dark Tooth player. Would be a good challenge since Dark Tooth is even more overpowered than even Minion.

I'm also fully aware that the network coding is awful in the PC version of Twisted Metal 2 but if someone can disassemble the game and rewrite the checks for the CD, and the videos, than why couldn't we fix the network coding somehow? I know personally how bad it is because I've had three PC's with Windows XP on them and TM2 and tried playing it with two of my cousins, it took FOREVER to get it to work, but it was well worth the efforts.

I already seen those videos. That's also not the first video I have seen with someone using Dark Tooth with the head on top of it. Someone should make a code to swap specials around. I have seen a video of Outlaw 2 with Sweet Tooth's special before. It was on a different site and not Youtube. Spectre with Thumper's flamethrower will look like Kamakaze. I still haven't managed to do that glitch to make the cars drive in the air.

Haven't been up to date with TM2 hacking.  Looks like it's starting to come a long way!

Yeah I saw your post on that ages ago, you said it was like in Spanish and such? Maybe it is GameShark codes, or direct hexadecimal hacking, who knows?

I found what you were talking about Luis, this is extraordinarily awesome. It's times like this I wish I could speak fluent Spanish, heh.

This was proven even by members here to be fake. That's quite a cheap Photoshop/Pain/other programs work if you ask me. And if you check more of their videos, they always like freeze the frame with Dark Tooth, which even gives more space to believe that is nothing more than a crappy edition.

Props to them, so the ending is fake, but the actual things with Dark Tooth could be real? I mean if they could work in Blade Arma's videos then I'm sure they at least had that.

An update! So I was talking with the Blade Arma guy, and I asked him what the codes were and about the checks and such. The head is NOT a separate car, I personally confirmed this with the emulator No$psx when going to the RAM Address location 80164766, which is what hex slot and such Computer Car 1 is.
To double check this I made Computer Car 2, which is at the location 80164767 as 0F, because 0D is Minion, as 0C is Sweet Tooth, but the game crashed because 0F is not a valid car. Not to mention the game didn't automatically set the Computer Car 2 slot either when I chose Hong Kong.

As some of us whom have played with the GameShark codes we could get here and there, I'm sure Luis knows what I mean on this, I've seen his enemy Dark Tooth videos that 30164766 000E is the GameShark code for setting Computer Car 1 as Dark Tooth, but of course we don't have our head yet except for in Hong Kong. So I theorized "hey, what if there is a check that runs through in the game whether to give Dark Tooth his special napalm cone machine guns, and his head?" Which leads us to the values

80103F78 0000
80103F7A 0000

Upon setting those two RAM Address hex slots to 00, he was fully functional upon testing in Moscow: Suicide Slide (I figured it'd be fun to have a 1-on-1 against Dark Tooth in Moscow Tongue) and yes he does end up having his head, but what's curious is that his napalm cones either weave up and down like Sweet Tooth's normal special, and sometimes they kind of spiral in a strange pattern, but nonetheless, enjoy!

I personally recommend these codes for a true challenge.

30164766 000E (Set Computer Car 1 as Dark Tooth)
30164767 000D (Set Computer Car 2 as Minion)
80103F78 0000 (Check bypass I think?)
80103F7A 0000 (Check bypass I think?)
3001A23F 0008 (Sets the difficulty value to 8, which is beyond the normal reach being 00 is Easy, 01 is Medium, and 02 is Hard, the RAM address location of this would be 8001A23F. Why 08? The YouTube user GameSharkWizard set it to that value, I personally set it to 0004 because TOO high of a value means too extreme of an artificial difficulty. It's already bad enough they get infinite ammo and are able to spam weapons that you normally can't)
30164761 0009 (Forces it so the max CPU Players is this, Holland already sets it to this, but go ahead and try it on levels that don't have a 9 car limit.

Now I know I know, some may be asking. "But wait, how do we play as Dark Tooth and have the head?" I haven't had the time to try it, but I theorize bypassing the check and simply forcing the game to make Player 1 be Dark Tooth would be enough HOWEVER, I'm not positive about this. I'm sure also that still, yes, Dark Tooth's non-functional special weapon was potentially replaced with Sweet Tooth's as his special by Blade Arma, and I haven't gotten around to asking him about that. I don't want to pressure the guy or make him uncomfortable because unfortunately nowadays him and I seem to really be some of the few people left interested in hacking Twisted Metal 2 and have made a conscious effort to do so.

Here are also two reputable sources to consider

http://gamehacking.org/?game=90075&hacker=all&format=original
http://wescastro.com/codetwink/cheats.codetwink.com/psx/view/2100/default.htm#q3

EDIT: Okay I figured out at least one thing. 80103F78 tells the game what level to give Dark Tooth his head on, by default it's 08, which is Hong Kong. If you set it to 00, it'll allow him to have his head on ANY level. Still not sure what 80103F7A does, by default it's 0043. I'll mess around with it and see what it does. Oh, and I just confirmed that you still don't have his head even when you do the bypass. I'll keep looking around.

EDIT 2: The 80103F7A value appears to have to do with where the napalm missiles are fired from. The 0043 value essentially is the Y value (vertical, up and down, how high or how low) 0043 makes it so the missiles seem to come from the head, but they have difficulty hitting you because they're being shot from too high, so I guess his reason for making it 0000 was so it fires from the ground level so it can hit it's targets.

I fought Dark Tooth in Moscow with four other cars with Roadkill and it was HELL. It took so many tries to beat it because Dark Tooth can hit you from anywhere with the pink cones following you and the head is undodgable, depending on what angle you're coming from. If you're going directly to him then you're going to get hit. Since this code only works in Challenge mode, you're going to run out of turbos fast since you can't carry over the ones in Los Angeles and that head will keep putting you on fire. What's even worst is Spectre was there. Everyone's most hated CPU car in the game. Cheesy I'll play around with this some more later.

Actually the code works in Tournament too, see, I think the check is set up so if the value is 0008 which is Hong Kong, it'll only give him his additional weapons on Hong Kong. But if you set it to 0000, as the code has you do, it gives him his weapons on EVERY map as opposed to just one.

The Dark Tooth CPU code that makes him appear on every stage never worked for me in tournament. The game always freezes when I pick my car.

Maybe you're doing it on the real deal, because I usually alternate between ePSXe and no$psx for debugging purposes and such.

Yeah I am doing it on a console and it always freezes in tournament. I have done every stage with Mr. Slam: http://youtu.be/6z-x_eNTqto

Dark Tooth doesn't die when you push him off of New York. You can skip to 54:12 to see that. Moscow and Holland are even worst with Dark Tooth having his head and homing machine guns that last a long time. Why there's two bypass codes? I only used the first one.

Oh I know right? When I tested against him on those levels it was horrifying. I even tested playing against him in a Challenge Match in Los Angeles: Roof Tops. I imagined Cyburbia and Florida: Suicide Swamp would be pointless to battle him in because of how little room he would have and what not. Oh, I think the reason why it probably freezes is because of the lack of the icon or cameo or whatever for Dark Tooth when it shows what characters you have. It looks like Blade Arma fixed that. You may ask him if you want, just be sure to translate his text because when we speak in English he does the same with us so he can understand what we're saying.
