Cheat Support?
« on: April 04, 2013, 10:12 PM »
I've made a few ASM hacks for Splatterhouse using MESS.  Any chance of cheat support for the T-ED?

Edit: I see this topic has been discussed already... I guess since we have ASM hacks, I'm wondering now the probability of cheat support as opposed to patching roms.

Why just not load patched rom on SD? i don't see any huge database of cheats and cheats standards for pce, so i will not implement cheats functions for cheats which actually not exist

You're right... there aren't enough ROM based cheats to justify a cheats system.  Most of these are RAM.

However, there is potential for many more, perhaps I'll mention it again when there's more cheats available.

loads of really cool sounding cheats on that gamehacking page. how so you go about using these cheats with the turbo everdrive though? i don't see any ips files and it seems we need to patch the roms :(

As you might have seen on the page, you can export the cheats for the magicengine and mess emulators.  I am the webmaster for gamehacking.org, and I might be able to write an export script for an ips file if it's straightforward.  Basically it depends on whether the tg16 uses paging or not.  I'll have to look into it.

Realize this only applies to ROM hacks, which most of the ones at gh are RAM.  I, for one, will be making more ROM hacks... unfortunately right now the mess debugger doesn't want to break on watchpoints for tg16/pce... I hope they fix it soon.  Until they do I'm stuck sifting through trace dumps.

EDIT: after looking at my cheats for Splatterhouse, it looks like an ips script might work.  Unless it's a coincidence that all three cheats were on the first page.

EDIT 2:  I added an ips script to the site.  The only problem is, is that it's hard to discern which codes are ROM hacks.  One way to tell is if they have a compare byte (address?compare:value).  There are 3 ROM codes for Splatterhouse you can get a patch for.
