What are all of the Gamecube patches permitted for online play?

Post by Lexaraj » Tue Nov 09, 2021 1:11 pm

I've been taking a look at the Gamecube patches listed at https://psopalace.sylverant.net/downloads_gamecube.html and I wanted to make sure all of the patches were allowed to be used when playing online on Sylverant. My assumption was yes but I wanted to make sure before using them.

Also, is any form of enemy health bar code permitted? I'm assuming not, as they're 'cheats' enabled through Action Replay but, again, I wanted to double check.

Appreciate any feedback. Just want to make sure I'm doing the right thing online here. Also, thank you for keeping the online life of this game alive!

Anything on the download page is allowed; anything not on the download page is against the rules, although some cosmetic mods like particle effects and music replacement are generally accepted. The goal is to create a consistent baseline that all players can use, and there are lots of AR codes that give you an advantage over people who aren't using cheats, so we don't allow the use of codes.

That's what I thought, just wanted to make sure!

Thanks for both the quick response and for providing these patches. Amazing work!
