Scramble cheats

Post by scott_tunstall » Tue Oct 08, 2019 7:35 pm

Hi,

I've been reverse engineering Scramble @ www.seanriddle.com/scramble.asm

As a result of my work I've got some cheats here if you would like them?

I also included some things that make the game harder, such as indestructable UFOs and flying rockets.


Code: Select all

  <cheat desc="Unstoppable bullets">
    <script state="on">
        <action>temp0 =maincpu.mb@238F</action>
        <action>temp1 =maincpu.md@21BE</action>
        <action>temp2 =maincpu.md@2383</action>
        <action>temp3 =maincpu.md@2269</action>
    </script>
    <script state="run">
      <action>maincpu.mb@238F=C9</action>
      <action>maincpu.md@21BE=0</action>
      <action>maincpu.md@2383=0</action>
      <action>maincpu.md@2269=0</action>
    </script>
    <script state="off">

      <action>maincpu.md@2269=temp3</action>
    </script>
  </cheat>

Thanks, added. Ive shortened (replaced multiple NOps with single branches) so that it was easier to replicate for the clones:-

Code: Select all

  <!--  f 0,ffff,dd,21,00,?,11,3,0,6,4,d9 <==1st address -->
  <!--  f 0,ffff,fd,36,0,0  <== 6 results for addresses 2-7 -->
  <!--  f 0,ffff,fd,36,2,6,11,0xa  <address 8 (last extra lethal bombs address) -->
  <!--  f 0,ffff,dd,36,0,0,dd,36,1,1,dd,36,2,6,cd (bunker buster) -->
  <!--  f 0,ffff,3a,?,?,fe,2,c0,fd,21,0 -->
  <!--  f 0,ffff,dd,36,0,0,dd,36,1,1,dd,36,2,6,fd,36,0,0,11,?,?,ff,cd,?,?,c9,dd -->
