Error Handler

Bugged Fixed
EnforceErrorHandler.png EnforceErrorHandlerFix.png

This game has a basic exception handler for the standard 68k set of exception vectors. Unfortunately, the subroutine that handles the text for the handler is bugged, so you just get a bunch of junk characters in place of any meaningful information. Place the following code in enforce.xml and enable to fix the error handler text:

  <cheat desc="Fix Error Handler">
    <script state="run">

For details on what this code actually fixes, please read the notes page.

Hidden Text

The message "CR-X IS BEST CAR" is hidden in the credits, 8 pixels below the screen's overscan area. That's one way to do it.

Taito America Publishing

The word at address 0x3FFFE in the sub-CPU controls the title screen's publisher information. This is either 01 in the Japanese version, or 03 in the World version. The unused value, 02, sets the publisher to Taito America Corporation.

Place the following code in enforce.xml to switch between publishers:

  <cheat desc="Publisher">
      <item value="0x0001">Taito Corp.</item>
      <item value="0x0002">Taito America</item>
      <item value="0x0003">Taito Japan</item>
    <script state="run">
