Policenauts english patch to PS1, how would this work?

Postby thisheat » Wed Mar 18, 2009 1:22 pm

I am new to the world of patching and emulation. I have a copy of Policenauts, and am curious as to how I would be able to apply the english language patch to my PS1 game whenever the translation project is finished? THANK YOU FOR ALL THE HARD WORK BY THE WAY!!! :)
Would it be relatively difficult? I.e re-soldering your ps1 drive to chickenwire then run install dos on the cpu? Or would it be a simple file transfer? The question is how would I file transfer anything to an old PS1? Sorry to repeat an old question, or annoy anybody, it's not my intenton.
Thanks again everybody!

You won't need an official copy of Policenauts to use the patch (though that is more ethical). You just need to have an ISO dump of the game on your PC. The patch will be applied to that using specialist software. Once that is done, you can either run the game in a PlayStation emulator, or burn the patched game to CD and use a chipped PlayStation.

Thank you for being so quick to post that info! :)
I appreciate it greatly!
So wow, I will have to use a ps emulator then, have not the faintest idea how to do that but I guess I will give it a shot! Too bad there will not be a way to just throw the patch in the actual ps1! :(
But man, thanks again!!!

There are discs that will let you play home-burnt PlayStation CDs on an unmodded system. I don't know too much about them, and they're not as convenient as having a mod chip in your system, but try searching for a "Breaker Pro", and you should find more information.

If your PS1 or PS2 can play PS1 backups (meaning off of CD-Rs) you will be able to play the patch on your Playstation 1 or 2.

I've heard you can play PS2 backups on PS3 with the "swap-switch" method, but it involves some minor surgery on your PS3 and I have no idea if it will work with PS1 backups.

But the point is, to play on hardware you will need to burn the patched game to a CD-R and you will need a device that will play it.

(Alternatively, you can play it on the PSP as well.)

Very Cool!
I will have to look for that disc you are talking about then!
I see what you both mean now though!!
There are some options, not just the emulator which simplifies things alot! :)
Thanks to both of you!!!
Have you played the game? I have had it for awhile, and am so curious as to what it is like! I loved snatcher to death and paid a high price for a real copy. It was woth every penny!!! Is it impossible to navigate around Policenauts since it is in Japanese, or can you still enjoy it too a degree? You guys have a good night!

I've actually got a few copies of it (PlayStation, 3DO, 3DO Pilot Disc, PS3 PSN release, 2 Saturn copies) though I can't read Japanese, and I only understand a little spoken Japanese.

I've played through the first hour or so, and I could appreciate the design and production values, and to an extent, I could follow the plot, but I stopped because I knew the translation was being made, and I'd rather not spoil it for myself. I play a lot of games in Japanese, but rarely anything so text-heavy and detailed as Policenauts.

Hmmm, never heard of "PSN cards" before. News to me. I'm guessing you can only buy them off sites like Play-Asia or NCSX, right? Thanks for the reply.
