WREX Cheat

I have just found a cheat in WREX which enables unlimited lives. During game type "nutter" to enable it.

I used DamienD's WREX - Waste Recovery Extermination (19xx)(Domark).adf typed in nutter on level 1. Let the baddies win, but I get a game over screen once I'm fired (Lose the level)

The cheat will only enable unlimited lives, nothing else! If you lose because the bad guys stole all your waste you'll get a game over screen.

Isn't unlimited lives supposed to allow you to continue after you lose a life? I don't get what you mean Unlimited Lives when your lives deplete?

Unlimited lives = unlimited lives... If you get fired the game is over, you don't lose lives in that case! It's the way the game has been made and the cheat doesn't change that behaviour!

Of course it can be changed. But not by just activating the cheat.

Eh, it's not my .ADF... it's the only one availbale in TOSEC and has corrupt graphics when it's game over





There's a thread about it somewhere on EAB

Don't change this behaviour, this is how the game is supposed to be.

Yes, please, please, please do ross

Hopefully I didn't spend hours play testing all 36 levels months back for nothing

With a little magic and hard work this image has been reconstructed

I've only added a selectable time limit and an in-game key to zero it

Only when you complete the insane level 37

There is no level 37... some of these levels are indeed insane to complete and took me many, many, many attempts

Ah! You need to redo it, I've added sound/voice effects to the last scene.

You can't miss it

No way, it took me many days to complete this; and I had to use savestates on every level... not a fun experience

With a bit of time and a some lines of code this picture transforms to this "it could be much worse" version:

ross has already painstakingly fixed all the corrupt graphic screens back in mid December 2019; and I've fully play tested the game until completion

<screenshots taken from the actual test version that ross sent me>





Unfortunately he's in such high demand; and constantly takes on numerous projects at once... fair enough; he's an extremely talented / obliging person and always happy to assist

It's totally his choice what he spends his time on though; and I'd say the same to any other coder for that matter

...but on the flipside; this sometimes means that probably less interesting and time consuming ones like this (and *cough*; Shadow Warriors music fix / trained .ADF); which just now require the writing a nice cracktro / trainer; get put on the backburner.

Anyway, I don't hassle ross and am very grateful for all the fixes that he works on / provides

It will be ready when he's got the time; I have no doubt of that

Which is why I didn't do any further work on that after reading it in this thread.

Damien I really appreciate your last message.
And above all, your patience

Something moves under the ashes for WREX
So stay tuned.

Problem here, as usual, is that real life it's demanding and not being kids anymore.. everything is 'slowed down', time is limited.

So often I start doing something I like and when I see that it works, I abandon it for something else that I like (yes, when you do it just for your pleasure, it happens).
Being almost 50 is challenging, you would like to do many things but then you realize you can't do it anymore.

I found some old code that I wrote in the late 80's and I find myself trying it again and modifying it.
Often I am amazed at how good the routines were, even if simple, and I find code tricks that I didn't even remember using and I thought I had 'invented' only recently.
Sooner or later I will close the circle completely and go back to the C64

Now back to normal life..
