    OK, so I've been messing around with codes for my Cobra BIOS on my Viper in my GC and there's a cheat for Mario Sunshine which is called the
    '99 Coins (Golden Coin Modif)' code.

    By using it, it lets me change the amount of coins I start off with, right? Well, the following last digits give me 99 coins: 00000063. 00000065 gives me 101. But if I put say, 00000148 then I get 328 coins - I can't see any correlation between the 2 amounts! Anyone know how to master this?

    Right, after further experimentation I have yielded:

    00000089 = 137 coins
    00000090 = 144 coins
    00000098 = 152 coins
    00000099 = 153 coins
    00000100 = 256 coins
    00000101 = 257 coins
    00000110 = 272 coins
    00000300 = 768 coins

    ... All that I can deduce from this is that the units do have a direct correlation on the units of the coins. The tens and hundreds however seem to have no correlation whatsoever.

    Certain coin amounts seem impossible to obtain.

    The values are hexidecimal (base 16).

    6*16^1 + 3*16^0 = 99.
    1*16^2 + 1*16^1 + 0*16^0 = 272

    Aha, of course! Thank you!

    Given that it's a hex programmable code that makes perfect sense! Cheers!
