CHEAT - James Pond

Hi folks

I was taking some screenies for HOL yesterday and couldn't get the cheat on HOL to work for James Pond.

If I remember correctly there are various versions of the game (non-dos/dos etc) so I must have been using diff versions.

I tried the cheat on the whdload version and couldn't get it to work at all. The only cheat I managed to get to work was the built in custom tooltype.

I ran a floppy version and the cheatcode worked but was slightly different to the one on HOL

the cheatcode I used which worked 100% was:

-------------------------------------------------------------
Type JUNKYARD during gameplay NOT PAUSED.

Then use the following keys.

Return: Turn cheat mode on/off
The key next to the Z with nothing on it (on my a1200 anyway): skip to level 2
Z - Level 3
X - Level 4
C - Level 5
V - Level 6
B - Level 7
N - Level 8
M - Level 9
< - Level 10
> - Level 11
? - Level 12
D - Undo Locks
-------------------------------------------------------------

I recommend adding this to the current cheat rather than replacing the current one.

OK I've disassembled the game - the various versions don't have anything to do with it in this case - Jeff had broken the keyboard routine and destroyed the cheat mode keys in the WHDLoad version released prior to the fix in March 2005. The game does a tst on the result from the keyboard routine and because it was a JST conversion, the last thing is the check for the Iconify key in JST which returns false, therefore always making the cheat check code be skipped. A few nop's in the right place and the old WHDLoad version behaves as it should! The March version seems to work OK now too, just press and release each key before hitting another one, otherwise it's a bit unreliable.

Anyway I've checked the cheat out and found a few other keys etc - D has to be hit twice to remove the locks, Tab returns to the title screen, F6 = PAL, F7 = NTSC, F10 toggles the copperlist DMA showing thing (so you can see how much CPU time each part of the game is taking up), to view the end sequence you can skip to level 12, then hit D twice and view the end pic etc. I'll fix the cheat up now!

Thanks for the report!
