[magdrop3] Overwrite CPU Speed

Post by Loopiloop »

This sets the value at which the CPU opponents play. Usually this value is determined by taking into account how often you have won or lost, as well as the selected difficulty mode and the software DIP difficulty level.
This is the first cheat I made.
255 might be a bit excessive, since 100 is already pretty unbeatable, but I wasn't sure what to put as max.

Code: Select all

<cheat desc="Overwrite CPU Speed">
  <parameter min="0" max="255" step="1"/>
  <script state="run">
    <action>maincpu.ppb@1000B0=param</action>
  </script>
</cheat>

Upon further testing, 31 seems to be the heighest value that makes a difference.

Code: Select all

  <cheat desc="Overwrite CPU Speed"> <comment>Challange game only</comment>
    <parameter min="0" max="31" step="1"/>
	<script state="run">
      <action>maincpu.ppb@1000B0=param</action>
    </script>
  </cheat>
