I was thinking about Gameshark and Codebreaker and I was wondering if it was possible to make an enhancement disc for computer games? I seems like it would work and yet I've never heard of one. What can you tell me about this?
I've no doubt it's possible, but there wouldn't really be much point. The Gameshark and Codebreaker products existed because consoles are designed to run only a single process at a time, so any modifications to the game's code have to be applied before the game starts.
With a computer, because it's designed to multitask, you make changes to the game's code on the fly, so there is no need for a pre-loaded set of changes.
Not to mention the fact that trainers, cheats etc are already freeley accessible to the public if they want them. It's not like it was back on console, where someone couldn't simply go online, grab a file and stick it on their game. A disc of this nature for PC would merely be a collection of what is already out there, thus quite pointless. PC games also patch far more frequently and have a much wider variety of regionalizations and distributed points, a lot of which alter the code to warrant a new trainer. It'd be far too much work to keep on top of it all. Now we come to think of it, isn't CH just like an online version of this disc?
