Playing Chrono Cross using Popstarter on the PS2

Popstarter is a cool hack on the official ps2 psx emulator to get various games working.
I've finally been able to enjoy Chrono Cross this way until half way in the game where Norris joins your party.
Then after the character naming screen the game goes all black, looping the same music piece over and over.
Apparently this is related to the character portrait.

Some genious realized that one can use a gameshark code to replace the offending portrait with another.
Said and done, create a CHEATS.txt next to your VMC files on the medium your are playing from.

Add $3006EE59 000E and you've replaced Norris portrait with Zappas.
This allows the game to continue.
