I have used the GGGuy with great success for many games in my collection, some however, fail to work and i don't know why.
I am looking for infinite lives on them all

Alien 3 (UE) (REV01) [!]   - this one i also want lots of ammo
El Viento (USA)
Elemental Master
ESWAT Cyber Police - City Under Siege
Gauntlet 4 (UE) (Sep 1993)
Golden Axe (W) (REV01) [!]
New Zealand Story, The (J) [h2C]
Raiden Trad
Shinobi 3 Return of the Ninja Master  - inf shurikens and lives
Super Thunder Blade (W) (REV01) [!]
Toejam & Earl (U) (REV 02)


Please can someone help me with these games to complete my GGGuy Genesis Megadrive ROM collection, many thanks.

Thanks lee4. Please do try the codes from gamehacking.org. They are working fine for me on the current release.

Please post the code and full rom name if you still have issues.

Don't forget there are sometimes 2 or more versions of games released and to make sure you have the good dump rom. Overdump, bad dump, etc is not likely to work with the cheat.

Use the Master Code along with the other cheats, it prevents black/red screens from a changed checksum.

Edit:
Oops, I see that you did use the master code. I'll look into it later.

You need uCON64 to fix the rom's checksum. It will work after that.

http://prdownloads.sourceforge.net/ucon64/ucon64-2.0.0-win32-mingw-bin.zip?download

Put ucon64.exe in the same directory as GGGuy.exe and patch it again.

YES!!! That was why it wasnt working, after putting that exe in the same file and patching it, it worked!!!!
Thank you so much!

All issues in this thread have now been fixed.

Maybe for you it's sorted but other people are still struggling with this one game and i'm one of them. I'm having great trouble trying to get this sorted. It's not fixed and I don't care if this topic is more than 6 years old I can't get Super Thunderblade Game Genie cheats and the RAW equivelant ''Pro Action Replay'' codes to work with this game, I get either a black screen or a red screen when those cheats are put into the game, my PC won't let me run this uCON64 because my firewall thinks it's not safe, besides that it wasn't explained really well, what does it have to be patched with and where exactly does it have to be patched?

Would be far easier if someone could just post the working ROM with all these patches in it for the rest of the community instead of having to jump through hoops over and over trying to work out this stuff.

Are you really just looking for a way to fix the checksum? Just try this (it's specifically made to do nothing but fix the checksum for a Genesis game):

https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/342/

Patch the GG codes into the game and then run that afterwards so you won't get a red screen (be aware that if the extension for your ROM is anything other than BIN, you may need to change it).
