|How Do I Use Cheats?|
If you like old Commodore 16 and Plus/4 games, and want to apply cheats to some of them this page is for you. Here you will find a step-by-step guide to the frequently asked question: "How do I use cheats?"
This example is for Icicle Works, the classic 1985 boulderdash-like action game. The cheats section on the page displays the following:
Run/Stop + Reset: Stop Game
>6B0B 00: Unlimited Time
>64D5 00: Unlimited Men
G 6000: Restart Game
But what does this mean? Let's see:
This screenshot is taken in YAPE on Windows. However, most other emulators should be the same as well. Our first step is to stop the game.
You do this by pressing TAB + F11 at the same time.
- On the real computer, this would be holding down the Run/Stop key and pressing the Reset button on the side of the machine.
- In Plus4Emu, this is also TAB + F11.
- In VICE, this is Caps Lock + ALT + R.
The text MONITOR should appear on the screen. On to the next step!
Let's apply the cheat that provides unlimited time in all levels. The site says ">6B0B 00: Unlimited Time". This simply means you have to type that in, as shown below:
Once you typed that line, press Enter. This will display some extra characters after what you've typed. Never mind that, that is normal. We're almost done!
Now that the cheat has been applied, it's time to start playing again! The site says "G 6000: Restart Game", so let's type that in:
Note that the space between "G" and "6000" is not required (it's fine if you enter it). Once you've type that it, just press enter and voila! The game is running. Start playing, the time will no longer decrease! Enjoy!
