NASCAR (PlayStation Portable)
Developer: Exient Entertainment
This game has debugging material.
The PSP NASCAR is a version of NASCAR 07. It's not entirely clear why the "07" was dropped, but it ended up being the only NASCAR title produced for the console.
Undocumented Cheat Code
Figure out what effects (if any) this cheat has on the game.
A number of cheat codes were released for the game that can be entered in the "Fight to the Top" mode by changing the driver's name. This includes several sponsored cheat codes, including Allstate GoodHands, Walmart EveryDay, and KeepCool SmellGreat.
In addition to these, there is another cheat code contained within PSP_GAME\USRDIR\data\Nascar.db that is seemingly undocumented online: GrabLifeBy TheHorns, presumably meant to be a Dodge-sponsored cheat.
Code for a number of debug menus remains within the released version of the game. While not usually accessible to the player, by manipulating portions of the game's code, one can force these menus to open. One way to do this is swapping which menu is opened when an option is selected. For example, here are some CwCheat codes for ULUS10122 that swap the in-game Pause > Settings > Saved Data menu with other menus. Only one should be enabled at a time, since they all write to the same address.
_C0 Restore Original Saved Data Settings Menu _L 0x0004C624 0x00000009 _C0 Saved Data Settings -> Race Cheats _L 0x0004C624 0x00000047 _C0 Saved Data Settings -> Fight to the Top Cheats _L 0x0004C624 0x00000022 _C0 Saved Data Settings -> Debug Goodies _L 0x0004C624 0x00000067 _C0 Saved Data Settings -> Test Menu _L 0x0004C624 0x0000001e _C0 Saved Data Settings -> AI Engine _L 0x0004C624 0x0000006a
The Race Cheats menu presents options to modify the opponent AI level, reduce the number of race laps, and enable/disable infinite rewind.
Fight to the Top Cheats
The Fight to the Top Cheats menu provides options to modify aspects of the Fight to the Top game mode, including modifying the player's money, and modifying Hero/Villain and prestige levels.
The Debug Goodies menu contains two options: Focus engine and Skill Points Test.
Selecting Focus engine opens a menu featuring various debug options related to Focus Engine sound. This includes multiple engine sound tests, including a slideable RPM scale that changes the pitch of an engine noise, and a menu that allows the user to change the position of the camera relative to the vehicle to test how different positions affect the sound of the engine.
Skill Points Test
Selecting Skill Points test immediately opens a Skill Points Summary display.
The Test Menu provides test instances of various menu inputs, such as value sliders, number pickers, string lists, and text input fields.
Each menu option has a corresponding description to display at the bottom:
- Test music: Listen to tunes from the game (DEBUG ONLY)
- Hello SFX: Blipp blopp testing FTTT Options menu
- String list: And a string list too
- Name: Your name
AI Engine Menu
The AI Engine menu presents options to dump the AI engine sounds and patches.
