Idea: the Cheat State Machine

I know I've pushed for this idea before, but I'll push it again, having thought it out more thoroughly: We should have a state machine implementation for the cheat engine, so that we can do more complicated things (such as data being stored encrypted, relative addresses with multiple pointer derefer...

I like the instruction idea, and I think it was the original intent of CheatScript. The main purpose of this idea is mainly to allow for more complex cheating constructs, as well as dispensing with ROM hacks that disable some kind of storage mechanic (say, checksumming for valid data) which may also...

The cheat engine in VBA is not as advanced as the MAME cheat engine for one - it can only take in simple writes, as well as GameShark and CodeBreaker codes. Furthermore, GameShark and CodeBreaker compatibility is incomplete on the PC version (and it doesn't work at all on the Mac due to endianness i...

My line of thinking was something that could kill two birds with one stone - allow more complicated cheats while working around multipart list cheats. Consider this: :game:F0000000:00000001:00000001:00000000:Enum 1, Choice 1:The address field is an ID for the enum while the two others are what is in...

The problem with a ROM cheat is that 1. you have to know something about the CPU architecture of the emulated machine (ie. processor assembly language) 2. you are effectively diverting CPU resources away from the game, which might throw the game out of sync if timing is important The knowledgeable d...

Idea: "Register Machine" to increase Cheat Engine

Just a thought on how to use the remaining undesignated space in the 32-bit cheat specification (that would be the A0000000-E0000000 area, I think). It came across as I was looking for Game Boy Advance cheats. Right now, no GBA emulator that I know of has a powerful enough cheat engine to do relativ...

"Cheat Design Pattern" support

Looking over the cheat file, we have quite a few design patterns that we have here. For example, certain games have a persistent "Invincibility on" and a one-shot "Invincibility off" cheat. In a sense, list cheats are also another of the sort. A possible cheat engine expansion would be to do some ac...

Don't ask for new cheat files. They will take longer to come out. As they say, it's done when it's done.

The cheats forum has a "couple" of Bugfinder's ROM cheats for sfa3 (and some more I followed up upon) that sets the order of opponents in the various modes. Problem is, they are so mass-produced that you'd need an m4 file to build the 100K-odd file (I have it and can give it on request). We might ju...

I would imagine that the complexity of the underlying system, as well as the game's internal logic, would be a big barrier. When the KOF engine was rewritten in '96, it made MLCs difficult to find (it still eludes me today). Similarly, Last Blade and Waku Waku 7 are games that are not likely to have...

2-21-06 Conversion to the m4 files is slightly more frustrating than I thought, if only for the fact that that I have to change the default quotes from `' to <> (so moves like Ko'ou Ken or Ten'i Daihou won't cause an accidental end-quote - the good part is that as I use <> for move names in which I...

Pre-enable is typically not a good idea as most arcade machines do read/write memory tests which the cheat could interfere with when it boots. As for key binding, check http://www.mamecheat.co.uk/forums/viewtopic.php?t=2227 for info on key prebinding. It's been a fairly common topic with ample cover...

The NEW Move List Cheat Collection

This is the topic for announcements and comments on the New Move List Cheat Collection. Move List Cheats are cheats that allow you to eliminate (or at least abbreviate) the motions for special moves found in fighting games. As such, special moves can be simply executed with the press of a button. Al...

One short followup: Now, the code for always having the power gauge will allow you to do the Ikari Bakuhatsu as many times as you want (see the topic on Ikari Bakuhatsu on this), but you can still perform the Mu no Kyouchi once. Not anymore. The following cheat will allow you to, in theory, perform ...

[samsho5] Ikari Bakuhatsu

Having said a lot about Ikari Bakuhatsu, how about we do a little cheating on it? To activate the Ikari Bakuhatsu, press ABC. Your sword gauge will get longer (and be completely refilled), while you will be on another timer (which you can end early by performing and connecting your Buki Tobashi Waza...

[samsho5] Always have Power Bar

If you perform the Ikari Bakuhatsu or the Mu no Kyouchi, you will lose the use of the power bar for the rest of the match. This cheat will allow you to use the bar over and over again. As a result, this allows you to use the Ikari Bakuhatsu as many times as you want. (You can still only perform the ...

[samsho5] Mu no Kyouchi

To perform the Mu no Kyouchi, you must have lost a round, and must have the life bar below the meditation bar level (performing meditations raises the meditation bar level). After you perform, you can perform the Issen (BCD). However, Mu no Kyouchi (like Ikari Bakuhatsu), expires after a length of t...
