Speaking of bogus cheats...
http://hol.abime.net/1164/cheatcode

This "cheat" should be removed from HOL as it's false and utter nonsense.

[edit]
Found my thread from 2007.

@Retroplay: reminds me of the bogus Alien Breed cheat: "select INTEX ENTERTAINMENT in the computer menu and you'll be able to play pong"

The cheat for Blood Money is neither fish nor fowl. In order for it to work the game expects this string.

003FFFF0 4441 5645 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 0000 DAVE............

Fortunately the Supra sidecar ( WinUAE equivalent Z2 Fast 2MB) could reach that address. Amiga BASIC was used to poke into place. Memory survived reset before booting game. Of course another unknown step could alter or eliminate the DAVE check.

This never worked in any version of Walker:

As soon as you appear on level two (don’t move the walker at all), type “EAT LEAD MUDDY FUNSTER”.

there's a simpler way on Winuae: just set 4MB of chipmem. I suppose that Dave Jones put that at this address so it doesn't interfere with the game. Nice find (and probably nice access fault on whdload when try the cheat)
