You need to get the game ID and offset from already existing codes.
For example, I took Infinte yens (PAL) and Max Cash (US) from codejunkies. It's the same code just labelled differently for PAL and USA.. Use maxconvert and convert from "ARMAX" to "RAW". The game ID showed up as "00C6" for PAL with raw code:

1087A088 0000FFFF

Then USA showed up as "0292" with raw code:

20879888 05F5E0FF

Then you take the last 6 digits of the first 8 for pal and subtract the last 6 digits of the first 8 for USA:

87A088 minus 879888 and came up with "800" (You can use the windows calculator by changing view to scientific and putting a click in "hex")

Then I took the last 6 digits of the first 8 of the USA raw code I wanted to convert and added hex "800" to it using the windows calculator again:

condensed USA code for the all seed beast:

40879ABC 008B0001
FFFFFFFF 00000000

879ABC + 800 = 87A2BC

Then replace the USA raw code with that number keeping everything else the same to get the PAL raw code:

4087A2BC 008B0001
FFFFFFFF 00000000

Now use maxconvert to convert "raw" to "AR MAX" using "00C6" as the game ID (that you figured out above) and PAL as the region. You now should have a working AR MAX PAL code from a USA raw code.

I found the item offsets for each of the item shops. Stay away from using the last address of each - It changes from Pouch to Backpack to Large Backpack after you purchase each and then that slot disappers).

Don't forget what Fez_Fury said:

"Just a side note, when you get past FF in the item list the next one if your using a code is goin to look like this

1052XXXX 00000100

an so forth i know they all say XX01 but in the code just switch the digits around
eg


3901= Choco 01 Figurine

in the code its going to be 0139"

Thanks for that, you see i'm using Maxconvert for other games now that i know how good it is from your codes you got but i couldn't figure out how to convert to PAL.

Here's a better explanation on how to use the item shop addresses for the items you want:

Let's say you want to purchase a degantoch egg or a Niralhorn seed beast. According to Fez_Fury's list on page 16 of this thread:

75 Degnatoch

For Forest keys, Key items, and Seed beasts DO NOT USE Fez_Fury's list on page 16 (most are wrong), use hunkster2's corrected lists on page 20.

4302 Niralhorn

Lets's say you currently have 16 or 17 items (you'll have 16 only if you purchased all 3 of the backpack upgrades). This corresponds to item shop 4 on page 21. We will put the degnatoch egg in the 4th slot in the item shop:

The fourth adress down in the 4th item shop list is:
1052fd00

now add the 0000ABCD to the end of the code, AB being 00 if only a 2 length code and CD being the code for the item you want:

1052fd00 00000075

The above is the USA raw code for the deganatoch egg for the 4th slot in the 4th item shop.

Pal users only:

you need to add hex "800" to the last 6 digits of the first 8 (you can use the windows calculator by changing view to scientific and clicking the circle by hex (this goes for all USA raw codes listed in this thread): Others values besides "800" will apply for to games other than Jade cocoon 2.

800 + 52fd00 = 530500

PAL raw code:

10530500 00000075

For Niralhorn:

The codes of length 4 listed in this thread are listed in CDAB format so change

niralhorn 4302

to ABCD format: 0243 and put it in the code:

1052fd00 00000243 (USA raw code)
10530500 00000243 (PAL raw code)

The above is the niralhorn raw code for the 4th slot in the 4th item shop.

Now open maxconvert v0.71

In left pane choose "Raw", in right pane and choose your version of the cheat device. Note: CB V1-6 also works on codebreaker 9.x. Not sure if the codes work on v7 or v8.

ARMAX users ONLY:

use "0292" and region "USA" in the drop down boxes
or use ""00C6" and region "PAL" in the drop down boxes

AR2v2 users ONLY:
Uuse the default "1853E59E" for the AR2v2 key code. If the code you get does not work change it to "1645EBB3" and press covert again. Use the key code thats works for you from now on for all your codes for all of your games.

Hope this helps. Thanks to Fez_Fury for his "all seed beasts" condensed code, item lists codes and starting address of the 1st item shop. I would never have been able to fix his item values or find the other addresses to the other item shops without these codes.

Hunkster2, i tried the item shop codes and they aren't working on my game. I tried adding 800 and it didn't work and neither did leaving it as it was, can you figure out what the problem is?

Also, i did have the thing as 00C6 and PAL if you thought that would be the problem.

You are probably adding 800 wrong. Test my example and see if you get the same answer. Otherwiise, send me the PAL equivelant of the file "SLUS_203.09" off the main directory of the game DVD. Yours will begin with "SCES" I believe.

Don't forget to check that your using the correct shop. Count your items in your shop. I originally did my codes for the 4th shop (16-17 items) and they didn't work. I recounted my items in my shop and had 18 items in my shop (which is the 5th shop). If you bought all of the pouch/backpack upgrades you should have the lower number in your shop.

Here are the some condensed USA raw codes that affect ALL of your beasts (active and in kennel):

Quick Level Gain (500,000 EXP)
4087A000 0064006B
0007A120 00000000

Infinite HP (999/XXX)
4087A014 0064006B
000003E7 00000000

Max HP (XXX/999)
4087A010 0064006B
000003E7 00000000

Infinite MP (999/XXX)
4087A02C 0064006B
000003E7 00000000

Max MP (XXX/999)
4087A028 0064006B
000003E7 00000000

Max Strength (999)
4087A040 0064006B
000003E7 00000000
4087A044 0064006B
000003E7 00000000

Max Vitality (999)
4087A058 0064006B
000003E7 00000000
4087A05C 0064006B
000003E7 00000000

Max Wisdom (999)
4087A070 0064006B
000003E7 00000000
4087A074 0064006B
000003E7 00000000

Max Spirit (999)
4087A088 0064006B
000003E7 00000000
4087A08C 0064006B
000003E7 00000000

Max Speed (999)
4087A0A0 0064006B
000003E7 00000000
4087A0A4 0064006B
000003E7 00000000

Use "Infinite HP" and "Max HP" activated together - This gives ALL of your beasts (even in the kennel) HP of 999/999. If you use "Infinite HP" by itself, beasts can have say 999/255 HP and it makes your health bars blur together during battle. If you use "Max HP" by itself, you have to use a book, item or "Go temple" from a forest to get your ACTIVE beasts up to 999/999 HP. Your kennel beasts still stay at say 255/999 or whatever they are at. After saving with codes activated, your HP stays permanately at XXX/999 without loading any codes UNTIL you gain a level, then it returns to normal values.

Follow the above for the MP codes also. Similar results will happen if you do not.

Note the "quick level gain" on the cheat discs sucked. It only gave you 65,535 experience. It did not even raise my level 19, 4 merger beasts up one level after a fight. So i changed it 500,000 experience. This raised even my 4 merger beasts to "LV MAX" after 1 fight.

Here is the correct "all seed beasts" USA raw code:

40879ABC 008C0001
FFFFFFFF 00000000

The previous one listed only included 139/140 lines of the uncondensed code listed previously in this thread. Mine includes all 140/140. However, since there are only 126 seed beasts + 5 dummies, I would have thought it only to be 131 lines of code. So, it probaly doesn't mater. The corrected one and the uncorrected code both worked for me.

The gameshark 3 and the AR MAX codes for Max Speed for the 1st seed beast are incorrect. If you want individual codes for all 100 beasts. Download my excel file. It has alot of US raw codes for the shop, items as well as the beast codes.

www.unf.edu/~witj0002/jc2.xls

This gives ALL of your beasts a full evolution bar meaning that if you merge with an imago seed beast you go to a fully evolved beast after 1 merge:

Full Evolution Bar:
40879FF0 0064006B
0000FFFF 00000000

All Beasts in Beast Notes:
408798a0 00870001
FFFFFFFF 00000000

Hold up to 8 beasts at any part during the game:
10879894 00000008

This is condensed ALL beast level code, change 20 to whatever level you want all your beasts at (01-20):

All Beast Level Code
40879FF8 0064006B
00000020 00000000

PAL users only:

You need to add hex "800" to the last 6 digits of the first 8 for each code for all lines starting with "10", "20" or "40" (you can use the windows calculator by changing view to scientific and clicking the circle by hex (this goes for all USA raw codes listed in this thread): Others values besides "800" will apply for to games other than Jade cocoon 2.

Example: hex 800 + hex 52fd00 = hex 530500

Use maxconvert v0.71:

In left pane choose "Raw" and paste one of these codes. In the right pane, choose your version of the cheat device then hit convert - see below for AR2V2 or AR MAX. Note: CB V1-6 also works on codebreaker 9.x. Not sure if the codes work on v7 or v8.

ARMAX users ONLY:

use "0292" and region "USA" in the drop down boxes
or use ""00C6" and region "PAL" in the drop down boxes

AR2v2 users ONLY:
Uuse the default "1853E59E" for the AR2v2 key code. If the code you get does not work change it to "1645EBB3" and press convert again. Use the key code thats works for you from now on for all your codes for all of your games.

i am definitely in the right shop and adding 800 right so i don't really know what to do.

Plus if you mean the number on the side of the case it's SLES 50735, don't know if it'll help but...
