are some errors.)

(5) Capcom Hack -> When you play capcom games, click it.
3 Utilities, there are 6 submenus in it
(1) Speed Pig -> Status 90%. -> ×ƒËÙÐ¡Øi
Speed Pig is a tool to increase or decrease the delay between refresh, so it should make the EMU
run faster or slower, but it is still according to your CPU. If it can't make your games faster
because your CPU is so slow, the delay between frame to frame is very little, so you won't notice
a very large increase. You should move the bar to set the speed, the number which is changing is
stand for your current speed. Each time you click this menu should make the speed back to default.
And Speed Pig work not only on this emu, but also to your full system such as another game. It
still have a little bug and the slider works backwards. Slower = Faster and vice versa. At last,
you should run it at Your Own Risk and please read the warning message when trying to load it!!!!
(2) GameBuster -> Status 50% -> ß['ò¿ËÐÇ
GameBuster is a game cheater, the version in Chankast is just only a plugin for it. This version
of GameBuster can only lock memory address, but not search for cheat. You should choose game
in the first bar, and then choose a cheat and make it selected, the bar on button is the cheat's
type. When you select OK, please click Lock Memory. Please make sure you click this menu after
you Init the game, or you could not click the the Lock Memory. If you close this form, cheat
should disable, too. All the cheats should be put in the CHTS folder. And GameBuster still has some bugs.
If you want to know how to find cheats, please see the forums or below (Accessories: Chankast Cheat Finding
Assistant Ver 0.2a Usage)
(3) DualShock EveryWhere -> Status 10% -> •ºŸoÖÐÎÄ×gÃû
DualShock EveryWhere is a tool that makes a game or a emu support Shock, even if they don't support
originally. I wrote a program for CALLUS95, and had SF2 and WOF supporting Shock, but I lost the
source code, so it doesn't work here yet.
(4) VMSBrowser -> Status 100%
This is a tool to manage your memory card. It written by ELSEMI (the author of NEBULA). I have got
his authorization to integrate it in Chankast. But do not INIT (run the bios) before you use it.
For more use detail, you should see below.
(5) Configure Region
It should change the DC region, you should set to Japan, USA or EURO. It should be take effect
before you run or restart EMU.
(6) Task Priority
It is a Priority Setter stronger than the original one.
4 SnapIT -> Status 95% -> ½Ø¾àFÎ¶
This is a tool to snap a picture of EMU, the short key is ALT+S. All the snaps should be put in
SNAPS folder. It snaps not only the game screen, but the entire Chankast window.

Accessories: Chankast Cheat Finding Assistant Ver 0.2a Usage
You should use a 3rd party cheat finding tool to help this tool work, such as FPE2001,
GameMaster, or ArtMoney.
First, you should start Chankast, click Init.
Run this tool, the 'Chankast was detected' would be click automatic.
Use a 3rd party tool to find the address. (for more help, look in our forums)
For example, you find Ikaruga 1p life's address as 7FFFFFFF, so type it into the left form of
FFCA, and then click convert ->, so you should get a new address in the right form, this is the
relative address, and then make a file like this,
[P1 Infinity Life]
Text=Ikaruga, Two people shotting game by XXX
1D13EC is the address you get in the right form, 63 is the value you want to lock to, all
digitals as hex.
CHTVer is current cheat format version, now it is 0.5.
