Cheats

The cheats section is dedicated to Gent who has graciously crafted the cheats database added to Jnes. Below are the help articles he has made over the years.

Some of the screen shots are slightly out of date, where there was buttons previously for Add, Remove, Delete, Edit - these are now available via right-click menu on the cheats list as depicted in the image to the right.

Cheat FAQ

posted by Gent Cheats Comments0
1. Why don't the cheats i added work in Jnes and what can i do to make them work ?

Make sure you are not using a Hack\Different Version\or another Region. Game Genie Codes only work on the Good (U) Rom Versions and Pro Action Replay Codes work on all Regions provided it states what region the codes are for.


2. What is a Game Genie Code?

A Game Genie Cheat Code is used by the Game Genie Cheat Device for the NES Console. The codes are encrypted and have to be loaded into the game for the code to take effect as they Modify the ROM not the memory.



So when you see a [Game Genie] Symbol in the Cheat Dialog Note Section you know that means its a Game Genie Code that needs to be enabled either before the game is loaded or the game reset (F1) after it is enabled.

Using cheats

The cheat file database is done in such a way that you can tell the difference between Game Genie and Pro Action Replay Codes. The reason for this is very simple and will be useful for you to know this information. The Game Genie Cheat Codes are encrypted and have to be loaded into the game for the code to take effect as they Modify the ROM not the memory. So when you see [Game Genie] in the Cheat Dialog Note section, you know that means its a Game Genie Code that needs to be enabled either before the game is loaded or the game reset (F1) after it is enabled. The Pro Action Replay Cheat Codes are in Hex which allow the codes to take effect immediately as they modify the Memory not the ROM, so they don't need to be injected into the game before the game is loaded or reset like the Game Genie Codes do. So when you see So when you see Pro-Action-Replay] in the Cheat Dialog Note section, you know that means its a Pro Action Replay Code can just be enabled and used right away, not like the Game Genie that has to be enabled either before the game is loaded or the game reset (F1) after it is enabled.
