here are the actual checks, it checks if a pointer is null, if it is, it errors, then they check the first char in the game's title id buffer, if it's 0 it erros and later a special memcmp is called which compares the title ids from the patch's sfo with the one from the disc's sfo.

Anyway I felt like it is better to explain the actual check for people's educational purposes. · Reply
