The game can be forced to boot into a test mode for the Sega Virtua Processor by using Game Genie code REAT-E61A or Pro Action Replay code 0201E0:4E71. If the game does not detect the SVP chip, it will report a communication error (shown in the left screenshot). Otherwise, it will check the integrity of the SVP and make sure everything is working (shown in the right screenshot).[1]
