Very cool! It's funny these are button combinations like classic game cheats. What would the Konami code or Up-Down-Left-Right-A+Start give, lol?
I know I'm kind of a cheat nazi, but here goes :
It's Up-Up-Down-Down-Left-Right-Left-Right-B-A-Start.

(And the answer is probably a crash :D)

Mm yes, the Konami code is that code. The Up-Down-Left-Right-A+Start is actually a Sonic the Hedgehog cheat (I think?), in case you thought I was writing the Konami code. On hindsight it's been a long time since I tried messing around with the Sonic games so I don't know if that's the code for sure.

Thanks. :)

Yeah. It would be fun if you didn't get a crash, then you could brag using 8F with a set up and entering the Konami code does something cool (or uncool). Perhaps not many people would have believed you if this was back in 2000 or so lol.
Hi!

I'm Evie.

I'm a transgender person, but any pronouns are fine. She/her preferred.

Unfortunately due to legal concerns I won't be using emulators and unauthorised copies of ROMs anymore, just real hardware with official cartridges and a cheating device (Xploder) to aid research, sorry.

Online I most often use the username Torchickens or Chickasaurus.

Ah.. koucha ga oishii ♪





Thanks Aeriixion for the cute sprite above! :) Roelof also made different variations of the sprite (which I animated).

I like to collect interesting video games. ^_^

Faith (which doesn't have to be religious) and a positive attitude/optimism is half the battle for well-being.

Fun times come and go, we may argue what is the point if nothing in this world is permanent; and all energy is believed to be subject to transformation. I guess in the temporary absence of it though, we value those times more and even though some things seem to be lost, they return in other forms.

Imagine using 8F in 1996/7 :D

Hehe, definitely brings me back to being a kid in the 90's!

As far as the instructions go, Up-Down-Left-Right-A-Start would translate to the ld sp,hl instruction.

The Konami code would actually be 3 instructions: ld b,b; add a,b; and ld l,e.

And yeah, both would cause the game to NOP slide to its (probable) demise. :P

Imagine using 8F in 1996/7 :D

Oh man, it's crazy to think what people would have come up with back when the GameBoy was in its prime. With all the GB devs with gbz80 experience, it would've only been a matter of time before a few of 'em made some truly unique and crazy stuff with it. =')
