A. Not at the moment. The Game Genie: Save Editor for PS3 was designed for use on US and Canada, and the current code list we have is strictly for US PS3 games. However, most PS3 games do not have the region lock, where people in other countries are able to play US PS3 games, so if you have Save Data from a US PS3 game, you will be able to use the Game Genie.

Q. Will the Game Genie: Save Editor for PS3 interfere with online gameplay?
A. We are making every effort to ensure that the cheats do not affect online gameplay, but we cannot make a guarantee that the cheats will not have some effect on online gameplay. All of our cheats that we have compiled will not affect online gameplay to where there will be a competitive advantage against other users online. In the unlikely event that we do find cheats that affect online gameplay, we will make every attempt to block or prevent users from utilizing those cheats. We would like to strongly state that the users not attempt to use any of the cheats in online gameplay, and we cannot take any responsibility for users and their profiles getting banned from PSN as a result of attempting to cheat online. Bottom line: We do not endorse or encourage cheating online, and the intent of this product is not for online use, but primarily, for Single Player, Campaign, and/or story modes.
Q. Will the Game Genie: Save Editor for PS3 interfere with trophy acquisition?
A. Yes. Most of the enhancements will disable majority of the trophy acquisitions. Because the trophy system is based on achieving certain accomplishments under certain conditions, some of the enhancements of the Game Genie: Save Editor for PS3 will disrupt some of those conditions and make many trophies unobtainable. Some trophies will still be obtainable even with enhancements on, such as obtaining a certain item at a shop that was obtained using a max amount of money.
Q. But I want my trophies! How do I go back and make my enhanced save file able to earn trophies again?
A. The PC program installed on the Game Genie: Save Editor for PS3 keeps a back-up of every unedited save file before writing new enhancements on them if the option is turned on (it is turned on by default). The original save file will be in a back up folder on your PC; the original, unedited one will be the one saved at the earliest date.
Q. Does the Game Genie have a hexadecimal editor?
A. Yes, the Game Genie program has a hexadecimal editor, called Advanced Mode, that you can use to create your own codes. You will, however, only be able to create your own codes on games that we have on our game list.
Q. How do I access Advanced Mode?
A. With your game save on the Game Genie USB drive plugged in to your PC while the Game Genie program is running, use your mouse to right click the game you want to create your own codes, and select “Advanced Mode.”
