Popeye (Piranha) - Gamebase64-Version

Post by sprenzinger » Thu Oct 08, 2009 5:35 pm

This game is slow and hard to play. Please could you give me a poke for infinite spinach to make my pipe-smoking muscle man happy. Thanks. :D

I don't know if these have other effects, the spinach cheat works by stopping decrements on the side bar this may or not effect other things and may fill up this bar with spinach as you collect more ....I just don't know. Let me know how you get on and if any of the pokes has any side effects.


Code: Select all

The invincibility pokes and time poke work fine. You can pass through the enemies without a scratch. :D

The infinite spinach poke brings infinite spinach.

But the poke for infinite spinach has got a special side effect, too. You have got infinite hearts, keys and other items.

If you collect a heart or a key, it does not disappear out of your inventory, when you give a heart to Olive or open a door with a key.

This feature harms a bit the progress in the gameplay.

I was afraid that it would do that, as I thought I might of killed the decrement item check for everything. BTW, the addresses of the sidebar are 0x0936 to 0x093c (top to bottom) you can change what you have by poking those addresses with 'certain' values. I think 0x20 was spinach and 0x10 was a heart

If you enable Invincibility and Time will it make Infinite Spinach a wasted cheat, can you easily finish the game without it?

Yes, I can easily finish this game without infinite spinach. Invincibility against Bluto and the Vultures (and infinite time) make the game easy to solve, so I do not need to collect any spinach. :)

BTW, the invincibility poke stops also the collision of the mosquito in the light tower. That´s good!

I will check the adresses of the sidebar, too, you gave me. Thanks.

Now, I can find out all the things, what happens in this game.

Many thanks for your help.
