I just discovered something really interesting with the VisualBoy Advance emulator... you can indeed hack game save states, so it might be possible to "unlock" the house robots by editing the total robots value, in hex possibly...

Yes I know, but the problem was that these are .gif images. They are around 50 MB and 160 MB each. OneDrive also uploaded them quite fast. But do you see the images?

We do not see the images.
Besides, the image uploader can take gifs.
Such as (But not limited to)

I rest my case

Alright, I'll redirect to the files at my OneDrive then. I did use the image uploader, but I prefer doing it this way.

I just de-embed the images because they are each like 50mb, please shrink the file sizes of your images (Below 8mb) if you are going to post embed them like that.

I'll see what I can do about it.

EDIT: There, 9 MB and 20 MB each. Is that better? I currently use Format Factory to shrink them.

Try this out by first uploading the video file that you use to make the gifs. You won't be able to embed but the quailty will be 100x better and the file size will be way smaller.

Well, I'm back onto getting the house robots unlocked in Robot Wars Extreme Destruction for the Game Boy Advance. I'm using VisualBoy Advance to search for the house robots addresses... just to somehow be able to set a value from 0 to 1 to unlock them, or vice-versa.

Another thing I did to the PC version, of Robot Wars Extreme Destruction. Tweaked the house robots cameras to make them "usable" :P

That's pretty impressive what you've done, tweaking the house Robot cameras like that so you can view in first person mode. It's good that you worked out how to fix the camera work, so I don't have anything else to say but well done.

Yeah, I thought "why did the developers make point-of-view cameras, when they actually are just blocked by the chassis?" XD

It's often just one of those features that were meant to be finished off, but the developers must either ran of time when making the game, or the game never went through major testing through all the game's features, resulting in the first person camera system never being completed properly. Still, do keep up the work with working with the game's source code.

Not a problem! :smile: My interest in Robot Wars will live on probably for as long as I'm still alive ;)

*BUMP*

Just thought I'd post this here, instead of making a new thread with the same name. Every possible cheat for Robot Wars Extreme Destruction for the Game Boy Advance was found in the ROM of the game. Right here.

Except that "CONTRARIO", "OPPOSE" and so on doesn't seem to work... there has to be some way to edit what robot gets unlocked when you beat a certain level or opponent. Either that, or simply try to use one of those cheats at the right time in the game.
Best Regards,

I just so wondered if anybody here is good at hex editing game saves. Specifically Game Boy Advance one's, if not that's ok. I am still looking to make the house robots playable in the Game Boy Advance version of Robot Wars Extreme Destruction.
