Post The problem with cheats...

Firstly thanks for the upload - I have just looked at it and it's an old cheat list Sweet Cheater v5.5. The last official release was v5.7 but it's now up to v5.9 on my hard drive at home!

Anyway please bear this in mind regarding all cheats on the net:

Most of the cheats that went around the BBS days on the Amiga all came from one big text file version which was full of mistakes and non working cheats. A lot of cheat sites used this as their basis which is why so many of them have the same mistakes in them.

HOL uses Sweet Cheater as it's basis and I have spent a lot of time going through and removing cheats that did not work, cheats for games not even released on the Amiga etc. The majority of them have been tested and do work.

I am not keen to put in any new cheats unless they have been verified by somebody trustworthy.

A good test is to quickly look for the game "Warhawk" in these cheat lists. The game was only released on the C64. If a cheat list contains this title then I know the collector has just ripped cheats from other sources without any verification. Another classic is games like Superfrog which has 6 digit numbers as level codes and some cheat lists have 7 digits for some levels! (including older versions of Sweet Cheater!)

Incidentally when the full version is put online it will say which cheats are verified and who discovered the cheat if it is known.
