Debug Logging

Within the game is a stubbed printf function which would have logged various background information to a debug unit. This logs information such as files being loaded. It would also report errors if any occurred. To re-enable this, apply the below codes.

SLPM-65611 code:

Re-enable printf

If you are playing the game on a regular PlayStation 2, you will need to use a TOOL, RDB, or a debug version of OPL to view the logs. If you are playing on an emulator, you can see this information by enabling the option "Show Console".
