  • Later there was Cheat Machine (without hardware) which also tried to find out where a value of interest was stored in memory (e.g lives or ammo) by freezing the game, entering the resident part and search for memory locations that have changed their values according to our observations. The memory addresses that were potential matches, could be then overwritten or 'frozen', to see if the cheat is successful (or if the game or PC crashed as a result).

  • I had something like this for Amiga and it did not only let me rip all the sounds and graphics from my games, it also helped me to get rid of the virus problem I had with all the pirated games from friends as it allowed you to just disable virus routines in memory, prevent them from writing to bootsectors and so on.

  • I would not put an action replay in a computer. This brand is notorious for making poorly assembled hardware that would often bust the machine it's attached to.

  • This reminds me of C64-Extensions like the "Action Cartridge" or the "Final Cartridge". You could even save the whole game at the point you freezed it.

  • I used to have the Pro Action Replay for the SNES. It was so much better than the Game Genie. The trainer worked so well, and there were very few games that we couldn't get cheats to work on. Some of the features in the DOS version are very much like SoftICE (old kernel mode debugger for DOS/Windows). So freaking cool!

  • Not specific to this video but I just wanted to say that I'm really grateful that you're doing this Clint. I grew up with all this stuff and own half the games that are on your shelves myself. It really makes me glad that you're not only trying to show all this stuff but also capture the Zeitgeist and try to explain what everything felt like back in the day. Keep up the good work man. (: Edit: Wow that save state blew my mind. xD

  • Back in those days there was this tool called iirc : "GameWiz(ard?)32", it worked for DOS and was put into memory as a TSR that could be loaded into high memory. If memory serves it offered saved states and the ability to adjust/search through the values of a games used memory. It could even speed up(!) and slow down some games. I used that on DuneCD to speed up the animations when I was looking for sieches :) That was basically a total software solution without the aid of hardware. I think it even worked on games that used the DOS/4GW-extender.

  • 12:20 I think you ARE at 8 all the time, but when you take damage, the game subtracts 1 from your current health (8!) then redraws that portion of the screen. I assume the game just never redraws that right part unless it's actually changed.

  • I did have a Action Replay cartridge that would fit into the cartridge port on my Commodore 64. What a great device to use with a number of things you could do with it. Print,copy,screen save and lots of other things 👍

  • I have never seen this card in real life. But I had a tool called GameWizard32 which loaded as a TSR and did much of these things. It could also save the running program to disk. I remember booting a copy protected game with the original floppy we could not get backed up, save it to disk in the intro screen when it passed the copy protection, and we never needed the original floppy anymore. Also the cheat-creator function was neat, allowing to search specific values, but also higher or lower values until you had the correct memory location. Great memories of a time when computers had a personality and a charm.

  • I remember seeing ad of this thing as a kid in some magazine. I was reely tempted, especially I believed it won't take any of our presious 640kb memory, since it's hardware. I used standard memory editors, but they always took some memory, and if there was a game for which you had to optimize memory - you were done. Also later, after struggling with some games I discovered their developers were protecting against such intrusion. They stored critical values in multiple memory locations, sometimes obscured, bit reveresed, xored etc and it made cracking them very very hard, at least for a kid :) So I spent many hours in hex editor instead actual playing game... and ended as a programmer today :) Great times!
