    (This file should be viewed with Notepad or edit)




    The reason for this file is to show how to program the GameBoy Game
    Genie, and to tell you what to do with the Last three digits on it.




    First the most important thing to know when programing The Game Boy
    Game Genie is how to count in, what is called hex. Have I turned you
    off or scared you? I hope not. Counting in Hex is so easy that a 5
    Year old could do it. It's that easy.




    We all know how to count from 0 to 10. Don't we. If you don't you've
    picked up the wrong file. I'm sure you do know how to count from 0 to
    10 though. Well counting in hex is just like counting from 0 to 10,
    but hex has 6 extra digits. Huh? SIX EXTRA DIGITS!!!!
    That must mean that counting from 0 to 10, in hex, is like counting
    from 0 to 16, the regular way. The regular way is called decimal.
    (An inacurite reason that this is so is because the Aliens that
    made the Gameboy Game Genie have 8 fingers on each hand. And rather
    then make it easy for us to use, made it easy for themselves to use.)




    Just what are the new digits. The new digits are A, B, C, D, E, F.
    Yes. The new digits are A to F. They are what you would normaly call
    letters. They're not letters now. How do I use the new digits?
    Like this:
    00, 01, 02, 03, 04, 05, 06, 07, 08, 09, 0A, 0B, 0C, 0D, 0E, 0F, 10
    Yes I just counted from 0 to 10 in Hex. Easy wasn't it. Notice that
    I put a leading 0 on each of the numbers. When counting on the Gameboy
    you may have to put in one or two leading 0's. Most of the spaces must
    have some thing in them. So use a 0.
    What? You have a question? How do I count above 10?
    Very easy. Very easy.
    What normaly comes after 10? Answer 11
    I'm sure you can get from 10 to 19. Can you guess what comes after 19?
    I'll bet you can. Would it be 1A. Yes it would.
    (10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 1A, 1B, 1C, 1D, 1E, 1F, 20)
    Do you think that you can count to 100 now? I'll bet you can. Just
    remember to include the new digits.




    Now on to the Programing.




    Positions on a GBGG
    (1 2)(3 - 4 5)(6) - (7 8) 9






    Positions 1 & 2 are used together. They represent a two digit number.
    They represent what you are changing, the number in the cartrige to.
    This Number ranges from 00 to FF. Remember we're counting in hex.
    Your highest number FF Hex=255 Decimal. Your lowest 00 Hex=00 Decimal.




    Positions 3, 4, & 5 represent an address in the cartrige.
    An address points to what is changed by positions 1 & 2.
    You must fill all positions. You can start with 000 and go to FFF.
    (000, 001, 002, ... 010, 011, 012, ... 0FF, 100, 101, 102, ... FFF)
    Just count in hex.


    Position 6 is counted from 8 to F If you put in a lower value the Game
    Boy Game Genie will just add 8 to it. So a 0 will become 8, a 1 goes to
    9, and so on. Position 6 is Just like an address position.
    You can only count from 8 to F with it though. You should consider it
    as being in front of Positions 3, 4, & 5. If I were to count in a
    straight maner I would start with position 6 with the number 8.
    Then I would count with positions 3, 4, & 5. I would go from 000 to FFF.
    Then when I got to address FFF(positions 3,4,5),8(position 6), I would
    change the FFF to 000 and up position 6 by 1 to 9. I would end up with
    0009 for postions 3 thur 6. Not too hard is it.






    Positions 7, 8, & 9 are the most complicated.
    When Positions 7,8,&9 do not have anything in them any code you make
    will change more then one address in the cartrige. I estimate that it
    may be a many as 16 address'. The main propose of positions 7, 8, & 9
    is to tell your code which of those 16 address' to pick from, and
    limit it to just one address. It does that by using positions 7, 8, & 9
    to tell the code what the original value of the address is. When the
    game genie looks at the address and it isn't the value, chosen by
    postions 7, 8, 9 , then it won't change that address. But when the
    address has that value, chosen by postions 7, 8, 9, then it will change
    the value at that address to the new value you have chosen. (The value
    in postions 1 & 2.)




    Positions 7 & 8, always have one of 16 sets of numbers.
    The sets are:
    08 19 2A 3B 4C 5D 6E 7F
    80 91 A2 B3 C4 D5 E6 F7
    NEVER USE ANY OTHER NUMBERS IN SPACES 7 AND 8.
    Those sixteen are it. They will lead you to the right set




    x x x-x x x-0 8 x




    Space nine you just count up from 0 to F then change 08 to the next
    prefix. When you are looking for codes you should just leave positions
    7,8,&9 blank.




    When you are first looking for codes you should not put any thing in
    postions 7,8,9. This will allow the gamegenie to make more changes then
    It would if you filled postions 7,8,9. You will then have a better
    chance to find a code that does something.




    When you have found a code that you like, you may find that the code
    has many side effects. These are effects that you don't want to have.
    Let us take as an example a code I made for Kirby's Dream Land 2 for
    game boy. I started looking for codes at xx0-008 (xx is a number from
    00 to FF. I used 40), and I didn't fill postions 7,8,9.
    I used a value for postions 1 and 2 of 40. The code now looks like
    400-008. I counted three at a time 400-008, 400-018, 400-028. You have
    three lines for codes so use them. Sometime you will hit places that
    cause a crash. You should try going through those places by sometimes
    changing the value of postions 1 & 2. Or by doing just one code at a
    time. Its up to you.




    When I got the 403-7E8 I had an interesting suprise. Kirby walked
    through all his enemys. Here was a code to work with. I then tried
    changing the value of postions 1 & 2. I started at 00 and was going to
    work my way up, but that change made Kirby Invicible. Wow!!! What a
    great code, But unfortunatly the code has side effects.
    Some of the side effects caused the complete loss of all saved games.
    If only I could find the numbers for spaces 7 to 9. This would limit
    the effects to just one effect. The effect of inviciblity.
    Only one set of three numbers in postions 7,8,9 will let the code work
    right.
    Here is how you can do it.
    All of the codes that galoub makes have one of 16 sets of numbers in
    postions 7 and 8.
    The sets are:
    08 19 2A 3B 4C 5D 6E 7F
    80 91 A2 B3 C4 D5 E6 F7
    NEVER USE ANY OTHER NUMBERS IN SPACES 7 AND 8.
    Those sixteen are it. They will lead you to the right set
    _ _ _-_ _ _-_ _ _
    x x x x x x 0 8 x
    Space nine you just count up 0 to F then when your changing F to 0, in
    postion 9, change postions 7 and 8 to the next prefix.
    There are 256 possible combinations.
    You should just put one code in three times, but with the last three
    digits counting up.
    003-7E8-080
    003-7E8-081
    003-7E8-082
    Each of those codes affect a different address in the cartrige and do
    not interfere with each other. When you hit the right code it will
    work. You should can then try each of the codes one at a time.
    Start from the first of the three codes and find out which one it was.
    You now have a correct code.




    On Kirby's dream land 2 the code went from 003-7E8 to 003-7E8-B3A.
    (Invincible code Kirby turns gray)
    Without the correct numbers in postions 7,8,9 the code has many
    problems.
    Here is a list of the problems that go away when you have the correct
    values in postions 7,8,9.
    1: You had to turn off the code to pick up any animal friend.
    2: On level 5-2 if you go through the second door of the level the game
    crashes and can delete all saved games.
    3: on level 6-2 some enemes disapair.
    4: on level 6-3 second part the layout of the room is messed up so you
    can't get though.
    The correct last three digits does away with all those problems.

    The table that follows has the Hex value and the value for postions
    7, 8, & 9. If you know the original value of the code you can use this
    table to just look for address' that have that value.

    Default GameBoy Game Genie Programming Guide

    That's quite a list, I wonder how many languages people have dabbled with here.I've done bits of javascript, actionscript, LUA and very short bits of C, C, visual basic and PHP.
