After Burner is a game about a revolutionary sit-down cabinet with a rotating seat and cockpit. And fighter planes.

Hidden Messages

There's code in the game to display four hidden messages, but due to the way it's coded (see the notes page for more information) there's no way to display any of them. Place this code in MAME's aburner.xml cheat file to fix this.

  <cheat desc="Fix Hidden Text Code">
    <script state="run">
      <action>maincpu.mw@00AF28=6D00</action>
      <action>maincpu.mw@00AF56=0004</action>
      <action>maincpu.mw@00AF62=0004</action>
    </script>
  </cheat>

Next, lose all of your lives and get to the "Continue Play" screen. Then, press Vulcan 4 times and Missile 2 times. After that, press the Vulcan button the appropriate number of times (The number of presses changes what message you'll get), insert coin(s), and continue the game.
