    Well folks, here is the protection bypass cheat for Mario and Luigi RPG 3 (Japan)! This will let you bypass the protection measures and play the game without any interruptions. This code will be added in the next update of the cheat database which should be in a short while as well as posted below for those who can't wait. For those with flashcards or emulators that don't support Action Replay cheats, you can use DSATM (Search GBAtemp for it) to patch the game with the cheat so its always on.

    Now before I get to the actual cheat, I please ask you that if you do distribute this cheat to others and other sites that you pass along where you found it here at GBAtemp out of respect for all the people who put time and effort into it. A special thanks to Gelu who was the first person to bring the protection routine to my attention and where the very first cheat was based on. Also a special thanks to the GBAtemp Cheat Code Crew for all their hardwork and dedication, because without those like Normmatt, elixerdreams, SignZ, MrFatso, fa-demion, Curley and all the others, none of this would be possible!. Now with that out of the way, enjoy my fellow cheaters!

    Here is the cheat:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    If you are impatient and need help on how to add these cheats yourself to a cheat database, please see Curely's very informative Cheat Code Editor guide here:

    Edit:
    Updated the code folks! It should work now and bypass all the protection checks in the game, including the ones at start up and the first battle!

    EDIT: Mario and Luigi RPG 3 - Patch

    So it was the same protection they used earlier? I wonder if they'll use something better with the US and/or EU version(s).

    I added the code...but the screen goes white at start up...guess I'll just have to wait until the update.
    Is the piracy point when you get into battle? The game was working fine and then a battle started and it froze.

    I get white screen using this code. Maybe I'm doing something wrong? Could you post a already-made cheat database?

    Crosspost from the actual game topic;

    No ones actually reported a freeze yet and from my (admittedly short) testing it doesnt actually seem to have a problem. Save works fine on emulator and various carts, it only doesn't work on bad carts like EZV. However if there is infact a problem here is the real cheat code since Narins has a mistake:

    02047C50 E3A00000
    02047C54 E12FFF1E
    02047FB8 E3A00000
    02047FBC E12FFF1E

    As i say you might not even need this. I don't think anyones played through the game enough to see if there is infact a problem.
