Anything over 2 gives you a buggy textured version of the pro car.

How do I bring up the value searcher with PEC? everytime I search a value it says too many to list, and with specific searches it shows no results.

EDIT: Found out how to value hunt using cheat engine (downloaded that instead)
I found the value for the car changing
009C5770 2 (0 = rookie car, 1 = middle car, 2 = pro car, so the 2 in that code meant i was using the pro, the value also changed to that when watching the demo of the cpu's car)
and a second address was found:
009D63D0 2 (this one doesnt change and is always on 2 when i look to see if it changed)

I'm not sure how to find the value of the cpu cars, also i cant add those address lines into PEC as cheat codes for my game, says 00 is not a valid cheat code or something.
Anyone who how I can convert it so i can start toying with it's values in game?

I have the carmageddon mod that shows up on google too.

But I'm more interested in trying to access the CPU cars in the true games.
and the Disc question was only about the music, sorry if that part was confusing.

I'm not sure how the guy on youtube opened the cars but since i saw no cpu driving the standard player car, my guess is he found out a way to make a car modifier as you said.
Just not too sure where to start looking for values like, but it must revolve around those 3 cars... or not, I really don't know.

EDIT: Ahhh Bebo!! that's the guy that made this code 1st. He is credited in the youtube video, if only there was a sure fire way of contacting him, i shall register in case I can.

xD thanks again, I found it in the meantime after realising how dumb that Q was.
got one of my roms running, made a button config and am about to try out the value search in a sec, so far so good!

EDIT: one thing i've noticed with both the roms i got is that the in game songs are not playing, i mean there is still sounds like car engines, menu buttons and whatnot, but the games actual soundtrack seems to be gone, how do i go about resolving that? Not too peeved by it though, it's just a little thing i noticed. My main concern is still how to read values and to learn how to implement changes I make to the values.

Thank you ever so much Jorpho, I'll get to grips with this pec thing right away, seems like it will be the lifesaver of this whole operation.
However, I just tried to start the epsxe.exe to find "this application has failed to start because zlib1.dll was not found, re-installing may fix this problem"
what exactly is zlib1.dll?

I know it's possible since someone found a way to on youtube
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WYSn9xxN-5M

unfortunatly he hasnt been online since so hasnt been able to reply to me as to how he did this.
I'm trying to make the exact same code, and also for this games 1st edition, destruction derby 1.

EDIT: also, faust, I downloaded a hex editor since im not sure if the psx emulator i chose had it's own.. uhhhvalue searcher.

Hi! I love psx games, and recently began daydreaming of all the things possible with rom hacking.
however i have pretty much ZERO experience with any of it.

I wish to make a code for destruction derby 1 and 2 on psx to play as the cpu's cars.
How would i go about this? or if anyone is wise enough with roms, hacking and codebreaker, could you possibly make this dream come true for me?
