    I recently installed cheats because I was so stuck in a game. [​IMG] So I enabled more lifes. But I just want to get past that and then undo the cheats. Do I get my original amount of lifes back or do I have to start at zero lifes again?

    You're going to have to be more specific..
    Most likely, you'll have the maximum number of lives and you can then lose those normally..

    My lifes are now 999 out of 999. But before they were 50 (I wasn't too far yet). When I get past my point of agony, I want to undo the cheats. How many lifes do I have then? 50 again?

    It will depend entirely on the cheat and the game it is built around.

    In the simplest form somewhere in the memory will be a value to hold the amount of lives you have

    The cheat will then hold that value at a certain amount (usually 99 or whatever the highest supported value is). If it does not return to the "stock" value afterwards then you only need to fiddle with the cheat and change the value it sets lives at (back 15 or whatever you want), save the game, disable cheats and then return to the game.

    There are however many ways to do this (I said hold, you can change a death interrupt to add a life or something) and many things that might need to be worked around (namely mirrored or hidden values) but they should be part of the same cheat so you can work backwards from the cheat if you wanted.

    Edit: fool over here forgot to include a link to the various code breakdowns:

    I'm sorry, I'm a noob. I don't know what you mean. I am playing Bowsers Inside Story, I have an Acekard 2i with akaio 1.5 (?) and I'm stuck at Alpha Kretin. So that's the point where I increased the lifes of Mario and Luigi. Hope you have the info you asked for?

    so are you trying to say
    you used a code that gives you 999/999 for both mario and luigi

    right now you want to get it back to the old figure?
    so what was the old figure?

    If you undo the cheat to get 999 lives, you'll keep the max of 999, you just lose lives again when hit

    I used the cheats from this forum.
    I don't know exactly, but I think I had them both around 50.

    Mario HP 60
    12056372 0000003c
    1205637E 0000003c
    12056380 0000003c

    Luigi HP 60
    120563A2 0000003c
    120563AE 0000003c
    120563B0 0000003c

    next time try to use codes like SELECT refill HP
    these codes usually don't give you a permanent effect...

    anyway, go to this guide and learn how to add them yourself

    since you are an ak user... please REBUILT after you have updated your database

    Thank you!

    Once again I didn't expect this to be complicated. I just thougth to turn the cheats on and later off again would do the trick for me, but it wasn't.
    I'm glad you wanted to help me out.

    that depends on the nature of the code

    codes like max health, score, lives, stats, money, item
    usually would have a constant effect

    codes like walkthrough wall or exp multiplier
    usually would only have effect as long as they are on..
    once you off them.. the effect would wear off maybe by a screen change or etc

    therefore, in future is always backup before you try something [​IMG]
