I'm trying to replay through Lunar Knights so I can get to the post game tower thing, something I was never able to finish back in the day. To make things easier until then I was using cheats for infinite health and energy and it was working flawlessly. I have tried many times over the years to do another playthrough using these cheats, each time using a different platform (original hardware, flashcard, 3ds firmware, emulation, etc.) and each time running into the same exact problem. When I got to the sewer level (or any level with instant game over death pits trust me I've checked) however I get to a screen where the cheats seemingly shut themselves off. Now, I'm assuming this is due to there being instant game over pits you can fall into in this room and its conflicting with the cheats somehow. What I want to know is why? Why do the cheats need to completely deactivate? Were they made that way on purpose so as to not create some kind of crash if I do end up falling into the death pit? If that's the case why doesn't the infinite energy cheat continue working? Even the invulnerability cheat refuses to work in these kinds of rooms. Could I get versions of these cheats that can keep working regardless of what kind of room I'm in? Like, if I do end up falling in a pit somehow I'll just deal with the crash/soft lock/whatever happens and restart my console. I don't want to just download someone else's save and bypass everything because I kinda want to go through the game again as its been a long time for me. Every time this happens it just creates this wall I shouldn't have to deal with and sucks my will to continue playing. I'm genuinely baffled as to why these codes work like this. Were they created specifically to turn off in rooms like these in order to avoid crashes? If not then what the hell is going on in the game? Are the characters being swapped out for completely separate versions for the purposes of being able to fall into pits therefore giving the codes nothing to work on because its technically different characters??
