    You have an NTSC (US) version of GT1 ?

    Do you know if it is version 1.0 or version 1.1?

    Gameshark CDX or Pro?

    Without using the Gameshark, the only way to determine version 1.0 or 1.1 I have found is to win the FF or Lwt series until you win one of the Hondas. How the name is displayed in your garage indicates the version.

    See...

    I give codes for version 1.1 to make different cars (including the cars you want) appear in the used car lots on a day 1 game.

    There are other ways to get cars into the garage, too.

    A web search should find a "100 car garage" code, but, whilst I managed to use that code to help me use the memory editor in a Game Shark Pro to manipulate cars in my garage, it always seemed to me the actual "100 car garage" code itself was too unweildy for use with, e.g. a CDX, although one could presumably whittle it down to modify only the first garage entry.

    Oh yes, if you can read the tiny "IFPI number" in the hub of your disk (on the machine-readable side), that might help me guess which version you probably have.

    So far I've found:

    IFPI 5038: version 1.0
    IFPI 5042: version 1.0
    IFPI 5100: version 1.1

    Perhaps I should have reported this here (www.gtplanet.net) sooner...

    Entering new codes in a GameShark Pro seemed fairly easy to me, but it might be less so with a CDX.

    I'll wait and see what you have.

    I think I have a CDX somewhere I've never really used. I just thought I should have it to help test things for people who did not have a Pro.

    I dont know the version of the Gameshark that i have, I try to describe how work, and may be you can identify the Cd, and can help, or tell me which is the Gameshark original and the this form I trie to buy here in my country

    If there is no "add new code" option, you are probably out-of-luck.

    Are you running this on an old PlayStation, or on your PS2?
    I'm pretty sure you are totally out of luck if it is the so-called "PS1 Gameshark" on a PS2.

    There's no predefined cheat to select only some golds is there? Then perhaps you could leave an easy test to finish. That would have been a good code for them to add. "All golds except B1, A7 and ... ", um, well, no IA test is particularly easy. But I doubt they put that much effort into it...

    Is your PlayStation old enough to have the expansion port in the rear?

    I would guess you'd only possibly find a better GameShark in a used Game store.

    If your PlayStation has an expansion port a GameShark Pro will be ideal.

    If not, I'm sure some versions of CDX allowed the adding of codes. I'll try to try mine sometime before next Monday.

    I used my GameShark CDX on the weekend, and I don't think you could have missed the "New Code" option, although "Edit" is a little more difficult to see.

    You don't mention any "dongle" for the memory card slot; that's where my CDX saves code modifications I have made. I suspect you have a stripped-back CD-only "GameShark" with pre-loaded codes. There's a slim chance you can edit codes before using them, in which case you could probably "enter" codes on a one-shot basis, but I doubt it's like that.

    Like HYBRIDLVR says, a Dex Drive would be good thing for you to have.

    This might give him ones for the PS1 he uses for GT1.

    You'd know better than I would, but I thought all GameSharks for PS1 games on the PS2 also only allowed pre-defined codes.

    All-in-all Sony is trying to everything it can to discourage private GameShark Code generation.

    A GameShark CDX should allow entering of your own codes. But I wouldn't swear that the manufacturer wouldn't have confused the terminology along the way, so try to check up on what you are getting.

    If you have the expansion port on the right rear (left if viewed from behind) of your PS1, then you could consider a GameShark Pro.

    Barring cookie problems, here's a picture and description of the Playstation 1 Gameshark Pro box. I'm trying to track down a picture of the device itself. It goes into the back of your old-style PS1, and does not need a CD (and doesn't come with one).

    Here is a review which includes a picture.

    The edge-pin connect you see near the bottom of it goes into the slot in the back of the PS1.
