GT4 First Preview / GT3 Style Camera!

So a few days ago an amazing modification was done by Silent (You probably know him from GTA), which basically brings GT4 First Preview style camera, that is, a new chase camera that is no longer stiff, instead it allows the camera to have a bigger range regarding the angle relative to the car, it's really similar to GT3 chase camera, so if you ever wanted that, this does the job just fine.

Aero_ also created another modification for the camera placement which mimics that of GT3's, using both mods together will result in a very pleasant driving experience and a completely new way to experience GT4's chase camera, might get you confused a bit at first, but after a few laps, you'll love it.

The mod works on PCSX2, however me and Aero_ tested the codes on real hardware (My soft modded PS2 with OPL) and they work flawlessly, I've took the freedom to set a CHT file with all the necessary codes (Both Silent's and Aero_'s) so they can be loaded by PS2RD Cheat Engine, be it with the help of OPL or PS2RD stand alone.

Thanks to both Silent and Aero_ for coming up with these amazing, long awaited codes!

How to run the codes on real hardware: Simply copy all the text from the code block corresponding to your game's region, either NTSC - U/C or PAL, paste it into a text editor (notepad will do) and save it with the name "SCUS_973.28.CHT" for NTSC - U/C and "SCES_517.19.CHT" for PAL. Make sure the extension is in caps.

Below is two videos showcasing the work, second one includes Aero_'s GT3 Camera Placement as well, the difference is slight but definitely an improvement.

Hello, nice work you did with that PNACH codes.
Can I ask you how do you translated them to PS2RD codes?
I just want to apply this mods to GT4 Online Beta version (that can be played online today), but just don't know where should I start.
PNACH codes for GT4 Online Beta are posted in the same GitHub repository as GT4 NTSC and PAL Versions.
Hope you can help me. Thanks.
 
I tried to patch Gran Turismo 4 Online (SCUS-97436) with PS2 Patch Engine using Silent's GT3-like camera from GT4 First Preview, but it gives me an error, unfortunately.
If only Silent or somebody at least could work things out in order to use the GT3-like camera for GT4 Online via PS2 console. Oh well...

@Reameb

The first code to loosen the camera up was done back in 2016.


Go to the page and look for this:

GT3-Like Chase Cam
2034513C 3C013FE0

It may not be as good as the one you have posted, but it was a first attempt.


@Neal Singh:

It won't patch because the game (like all the previous ones) uses compression on the (in this case 'ELF') executable.
