Gameshark is a 3rd party disk and sometimes depend how the disk was made.The laser inside is calibrate to read the format specified from the manufacture (SONY) and quite few time the laser ned to be adjusted a little bit to make work but i do suggest to try another disk if still doing the same .The reading issue is a common problem for ps2.If your machine is a slim one i suggest to replace laser since are not expensive and can give more boost to your game

Can someone tell me if this is true: Game sharks will mess up the system that they are used on. And if it isn't true, please tell me where I can get one, I have tried Game Stop and that's where I heard...


Here's the idea behind Game Shark:

Alter the normal play of a video game to give the user an advantage.

That's cool and all, but think of it this way:

Take GoldenEye 007 for N64 for example. Game Shark makes it really fun to play; the only thing is that you'll start wondering in places where you shouldn't be (not intended to get to in the actual gameplay) and the game will start glitching until you're out out of that area. The reason this game sticks out to make this point is that after you accomplish a few missions on normal gameplay and do some tasks, you'll start to unlock certain cheats made for the game; pretty much getting rid of the need for GameShark (which you'd only use for the really hardcore codes). The biggest difference is that when you use gameshark the game doesn't recognize it as a cheat game and assumes your "walk through doors" to be normal.

GTA4 has cell phone cheats that you can enter to get a upper hand, the game knows you're cheating and blocks out all of the trophies as this could lead to a very unfair advantage. The thing is, these cheats were meant for the game.

Case and point: It will mess up your game. If you save your progress using these cheats it could effect your game and ultimately your system. Please don't use any cheats that weren't intended for the game and be careful if you do.

Respectfully,

Don

GOD GARNED N64 GAMESHARK!


The original GameShark for the N64 only works on certain games. During the N64 era, game creators would often include code on the game itself that prevented the use of a GameShark. It is possible that you can find a newer version of the GameShark that would work with this so called "blocked" games, but it might be difficult.

I'm assuming that this is the GameShark Pro for the N64. If so, the button is used to find and create your own cheats, such as infinite life, infinite ammo, etc...

To use this feature, start the game, say a first person shooter, and load into a level and when you are ready to begin playing, press the button. The GameShark screen will show up and you can say "search for code" or "search for changes" something like that and the game shark will run a diagnostic that it shows on the screen. A number will appear noting the number of lines of code executed since the game loaded. When it is finished, press the button again and it will return you to the game exactly as you left it. If you are trying to get infinite ammo, simply shoot once and press the gameshark button again to search for codes again. When it is finished, the number it shows will be much smaller, since much less lines of code have executed since the last run. Press the gameshark button again to return to the game and continue the process until you have only a few, say 5 or less, or even just one code left on the gameshark diagnostic. This code will be the one that dictates the amount of ammo that you have. By altering this code with the gameshark, you can either start with an extremely high amount of ammo, or have infinite ammo entirely. The key to this strategy is to do as little as possible between code searches so that you can quickly narrow down on the code that you trying to alter. Hope this helps.

Ah that happens to me. I threw mine at the wall, and then it worked. (True Story). And I get the awful screetching noise too. I think it has something to do with the "Fatty PS2s" Do you have a fatty PS2?
