warning: may be illegal depending were you live and laws. we will use roms and emulator. make sure that you have the game and system the emulator and roms are for or it is illegal.
now then. on to the Instructable. please make sure you are familiar with the format of action replay codes and hexdecimal.
in part one of this you learned how to change the back 8 numbers in the code. in this you will learn simple and complex ways to edit the code. the complex way uses emulators and roms and hacking systems so only pros should really attempted complex.
game system that goes with the action replay(duh)
game to hack
how to count in hexdecimal
have read part one of this instructable
for complex only
emulator and rom for the game
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: NO NO NO NO NO!!!!!!
I can NOT tell you were to get comertial roms and emulators! it is illegal and does not need to be talked about here. do not pm me or comment about it i will not respond!
Step 2: Easy Way
so this is the easy way. I stress the word easy as it is only easy if you are familiarly with the format.
anyway, yea you are going to just need the codes here.
lets say this is a code(its not really)
OK let pretend that it is a health cheat for a shooting game.
nintendo like most people are orginased. so normal things like number of bullets and health are close to each other(this completely depends and is not true for all games)
so in theory.
could be ammo. as you can see i changed the last number by adding one or subtracting one.
you should probely subtract or add 2
Step 3: Complex
OK this is the hard part. it is for finding the first part of the code.
note this assumes that the emulator you are using has a address searcher on it, if it doesent I think you can use a external one(like artmoney or cheat engine)
i recommend that you use "vba"(virtual boy advance(a gba emulator(i can't tell you were to get it). it has a searcher built in to it. the pics are me hacking mario & luigi super star saga rom(again can't tell you were to get it)
first find the amount of the thing your hacking.
as in if you have 100 hp then you search for 100. i have 32 hp so i searched for 32
so do that.
the change the amount as in lose some health. i lost 1 hp.
then search for the new amount. keep doing that until you have like 6 addresses left. then change all the addresses and the amount should change and that gives you the front of the code. the back is just 00000000 with the amount at the end. i had 31 hp left so i searched for 31 and had 2 address left. then i changed the address and that gave me 100 life.
