A group of Russian hackers have found a way to play Manhunt 2 uncensored on the PSP. The process of course requires a homebrew-capable PSP and involves dumping your UMD to hard disk and then modifying a pair of configuration files found inside the ISO file.
1. Open ISO in UMDGEN
2. Extract PSP_GAME\USRDIR\GLOBAL\LVLSETUP.INI and PSP_GAME\USRDIR\LEVELS\A01_ES\GLVLSET.INI
3. Open this files (with notepad) and find
# —————————————————————————- # [GK] execution colour ramp options: flash fadein (sec), flash duration (sec), flash fadeout time (sec) EXECUTION_COLRAMP_TEXTURE FE_execramps EXECUTION_COLRAMP_FLASH_TIMES 0.25, 0.6, 0.3 EXECUTION_COLRAMP_FADE_TIME 5.0
delete this strings.
4. Replace original file in PSP_GAME\USRDIR\GLOBAL\LVLSETUP.INI
5. Replace original files in all levels in PSP_GAME\USRDIR\LEVELS\ with GLVLSET.INI
6. Save ISO
Surprisingly simple. The likelihood of Rockstar facing any legal action over the hack is slim, since unlike the “hot coffee” mod for San Andreas it is not accessible to all.
