Ghosts 'n Goblins immunity and infinite lives
« on: 11:18, 08 July 19 »
Hello folks!Hope someone can help me. Some days ago playing in the Caprice emulator for CPC, I remembered my endless days playing the amazing game Ghosts 'n Goblins (CPC 6128, 8bit version). I was pretty good, I managed to survive up to level 3. Now I cannot do it.  :'(
I also played in the emulator for CPC 6128+. It is much better game. You get better graphics using 16 bits!! but anyway I also love the 8 bit version in CPC 6128 and CPC 464.
I was able to find some pokes to cheat the CPC 6128 version (immunity and infinite lives) but I was not able to find the pokes for the CPC 6128+ version.Can anyone give me the pokes for the CPC 6128+? This was one of my favorite video  games and I would like to finish the game in the CPC 6128+ version. I would play the CPC 6128+ version in an emulator, so I would need the pokes and the right emulator to cheat the game.I found the CPC 6128+ version here and I was able to play it in an emulator that I don't remember the name now.
Thanks a lot Amstrad supporters!!!

Hello Token,
Many thanks. Everything went fine. But I have a problem running this game in the WinAPE (WinAPE20B2) emulator. I dont have joystick  :( but I use keys mapped to the joystick. Everything goes fine expect the key for jumping. I dont know what is the problem but I cannot jump. I found a solution to overcome obstacles: being touched by enemies and going backwards. When an enemy touches you, you jumps in the opposite direction, so I am intentiollaly touched by enemies going back ;) . Everything seems to be solved but problems appear when I have to cross rivers... I was not able to overcome this situation. :picard2: Do anyone knows how to map the joystick's up movement into a key in the WinApe emulator and in such a way that it is workable?
I do some debugging.
Knowing that the contents of memory position #5B9E is the number of lives and the contents of the #5B9D is the number of times touched by enemies before dying, I was able to know:
position #5D3E is always read once you die (a number 4 is loaded here)
other relevant positions: #5B9E and #166D (a number 4 is loaded in both positions)
I am very interesed in knowing more pokes, such as: pokes to change the entry level of the game and pokes to let you not die when crossing rivers for example

Can anyone help me?
Many thanks!!!

Hello XeNoMoRPH,
Thanks a lot. But this version is not for CPC 6128+.  It is the version for CPC 6128 and other Amstrads which are not plus version. I am interested in the CPC PLUS version.

@IRQ8


Is this what you're looking for?


I made a couple of poked cpr's ages ago.  ;)

I followed your link, if I am not wrong, I downloaded the poked version (GhostsN Goblins (UK) (2018).rar) but when I try to extract the files.... This message comes up "The archive is either in unknown format or damaged"....  :picard:

I am craving for playing this poked version (as you say: I've made two cpr's, one with Infinite Lives, and the second with Invulnerability ( apart from falling off screen ))

On the other hand, any recommendation to run this legendary game in an emulator. I cannot jump using WinApe (I use keyboard)!!!!

Thanks a lot!!

The archive unpacks and works fine for me, I'm using WinRAR 5.70 (64 bit).

Put the attached file in the winape directory. Open winape
press Settings / Input then load the file.

Left Ctrl = fire
Use cursor keys for movement

You can also use 7-zip to open the winrar file.
