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.

Please note:

While I'm one of the staff who runs the site, Abwayax is the founder and manages the technical side of the site (specifically the server, but I can do forum/wiki stuff if you like, I suggest if you do to make a thread about it to gather a consensus). Still feel free to contact me about higher site issues though; I will forward them to Abwayax if needed. :)

Forgiveness is timeless, and moments we look back on humble the soul.

Thank you Nyapon for this lovely artwork. :3

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

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. =')
