Latest Cheats

Recommended Posts

The 7800GD has a built-in cheat system which lets cheats modify the RAM of the 7800 in real-time (per frame) and also the ROM image itself to enable cheats within games. This is all accessible from the cheats menu when you break into the game.

 

To enable cheats, simply copy the 7800GD.CHT file into the root of your memory card containing games. Whenever games are launched, this file will be checked to see if there are any cheats available.

 

These cheats were found and provided by Gent over at Emucheats, a big thank-you to him. 😄

 

You can also find and add your own cheats to the 7800GD.CHT file, further details of how to do this can be found in this thread: https://forums.atariage.com/topic/352992-creating-cheats/. Any cheats which people find and want to contribute, please post below and I'll add to the file linked on this post.

I absolutely love this feature!  The GameDrive is awesome without it, but this will really help me enjoy the games more, particularly with friends who aren't as well practiced on the 7800 games.

 

After excitedly jumping from game to game, trying the cheats, I noticed an issue with infinite lives on Ikari Warriors.  The number of lives continues to show nine, but I get a game over after a few deaths.

 

Is it just me?   Invincibility and unlimited ammo work properly.

 

Going to have a blast with the games this weekend.  My brother is going to stop by and slam through some games with me.  

 

I am amused at how giddy I am with this new "toy".  Thank you!

Awesome, glad you’re enjoying it! I’ve not had much feedback on the cheats, so it’s nice to hear you’re enjoying them. The cheats were provided by Gent over at emucheats, so it could well be that there is an issue with that one. I’ll have a look when I get a chance! :)

No worries!

 

After some more game time on other titles, I quickly realized that playing with the cheats is a bit of fun itself.  One must learn when to enable and disable.  For example, if I start Double Dragon with the cheats enabled immediately, you cannot progress beyond the initial open garage door screen, but if you first scroll the screen before engaging, they work just fine.

 

Other games (e.g. Kung Fu Master, and Dark Chambers), you may not progress to the next level in a game until you disable one or more cheats, because the game wants to award you points for remaining health (or some other criteria), but since the health is infinite, it can never finish.  LOL  Simply disable the cheat to proceed to the next level, then re-enable.

 

All in good fun, so please don't devote much time to this "issue". ;-)   I'll give Ikari another try, to see if there's some similar trickery to the infinite lives cheat.

 

My 7800 has never looked, sounded, and played so well.  Thank you for this amazing fun-enhancing genius device!
