[spuzbobl] Super Puzzle Bobble - Play as the final bosses

Post by KingDemonic666 »

As tradition with the Puzzle Bobble series, the final boss of the VS CPU mode comes in 2 forms which are not normally playable in the arcade versions.
In the case of Super Puzzle Bobble the final bosses are the Time Eater and (as usual) Drunk
Is there any way to play as them? I tried myself to make a character modifier, but instead I made another cheat by accident :-?

Let me know if this works for you. Remember, do not activate it until after you've left the character select screen and started the cut-scene. I haven't tested it in a full play-through of the game (it's not my type of game), so I hope there are no other issues later on.

Code: Select all

  <cheat desc="P1 In-Game Character Modifier">
    <comment>Enable after the character select screen, or the game will crash.</comment>
    <parameter>
      <item value="0x00">Bob</item>
      <item value="0x01">Packy</item>
      <item value="0x02">Maita</item>
      <item value="0x03">Anju</item>
      <item value="0x04">Woolen</item>

Thanks a lot for fulfilling my request! :D
The code works flawlessly as long as you follow the precautions you mentioned.
I tested it on all the game modes.
both "Player VS Player" and "Player VS Computer" work when the precautions indicated are followed, in VS Com I was able to play normally all the way to the end, even being able to input my high score while playing as the "Time Eater", the game didn't crash at any point.
However, in the "Puzzle Mode" any character that isn't "Chuken" is visually glitched, but this isn't an issue with the cheat itself, but rather with the game not accounting for character selection in this game mode.
Not sure if it would be too much to ask for, but could you make this code for the Player 2 aswell?

No problem. I've added the player 2 variant above. Enjoy!
