Let's have a thread for all the shit games have done that you never would have believed if they didn't actually work.

>The Wampa Stompa cheat in Star Wars: Shadows of the Empire

yeah dude, you have to enter a specific name, hold down most of the buttons, then use your chin move the control stick halfway in different directions to do the cheat. just trust me, it totally works.

>Dragon Kazooie in Banjo Tooie

yeah dude, you have to find a secret passage to get the ice key from the first game, then open up the huge ice safe and get the mega glowbo which you bring to humba wumba to turn kazooie into a dragon. it totally works man.

>Missingno

yeah dude, you talk to the old man and have him teach you how to catch a pokemon, then you fly to cinnabar then sail along the shore and you'll encounter a pokegod that multiplies whatever's in your 16th item slot. it's true man, really.

If i'm not mistaken, there was a soccer game on Snes where you could insert some code to turn the arbiter into a dog.

And also in Daytona USA (Arcade or Saturn) you could race as a donkey after completing the hardest challenges in the game.

Could be those fake edited photos of older magazines though. Does anyone know about those two?

Isn't the Mew glitch just the Missingno glitch but realizing that you can manipulate which pokemon is spawned by some stat of the last pokemon fought? I once went through with a guide of every trainer Pokemon's stats to get the diploma without trading by using the Mew glitch to get every pokemon I would have had to trade for, since of course you can't trade anymore.

Honestly one of my most unbelievable secrets ever was Yoshi on top of the castle giving you 100 lives. I couldn't believe that you reward for completing everything in the game was giving you 100 lives, which are now useless since you already beat the game, and which were pointless to begin with since already in this game dying was no different than game over, and saving didn't save your lives anyway. Couldn't believe that such a good game would have such a dumb completion reward.

If you play Fable 2 in the Snowglobe DLC there's a chest on top of a tower inside the cursed skull you're supposed to either use your dog or a co-op player to push you on top and over the chest in order to get out of bounds, then carefully move your way down the cliff and not slip off the map which will trap you unless you shut off the game, after carefully navigating the out of bounds area you can find a Headstone that removes all of your characters Scars and a Wineglass that increases your character's height by one every time you check it, additionally there is a flower that will teleport you back to the main area. Both the headstone and Wineglass have unique modifier attributes to them specifically meaning, that this is probably intentional since Scar Removal and Height modifiers weren't introduced in the See The Future DLC

In the first Dark Souls, you can roll off an elevator near Firelink which will get you onto a platform and if you jump onto the right spot, you'll be able to get taken back to the starting area. This also lets you go into an area that would be completely locked off otherwise as you have to get a specific item that only spawns when you come back.

The color palettes on all those old games are absolutely fucked, but the glitches in the early Sonic series are simply so numerous because the game is fucking spaghetti-coded like crazy. The "Asura" glitch is there, "Hyper" Sonic, zipping, all sorts of batshit insane glitches, but this is one of my favorites and it sort of proves that the devs were already planning an "expansion" before the development cycle was over.

The original Xbox Halo had so many goddamn out-of-bounds glitches, ways to fuck with loading zones, getting any vehicle into any space in the game whatsoever, fucking up cutscenes. It was insane, and hilarious fun; my friend and I played fucking hours upon hours of that game just hunting new glitches, trying to launch the Warthog with like 80 grenades, out-of-bounds glitches in multiplayer maps, you name it. I feel fucking old. God dammit.

From what I remember, you have to let a trainer outdoors not be battled. After you are able to use Fly, you run back to the trainer and stand at the end of their line of sight to cause the ! to show up. In that moment you can bring up your menu and fly to some other place. I think you had to get into a wild encounter after, and once you finish it you had to do a little bit of walking and Mew would show up. It's been ages since I looked it up though.


2265e2  No.15305976

>>15305826

Need to leave two trainers unfought during normal progression; hard to go into specifics without visuals. Basically, once you have the ability to fly, you aggro the first one, but fly to Cerulean City before he can actually walk down to you (this also locks the start menu, if memory serves, and then go north and west to the area by Bill's Cottage and fight the other. Start menu unlocks again, fly to Lavender Town, take a few steps (west, I want to say), and a level 7 Mew will appear. You can catch it and the game will consider it legit.

There's video of the process out there as well.

Arbitrary code execution glitches in Pokemon Red are absolutely crazy to watch. There's multiple different methods of doing it, and all of them sound like the kind of bullshit your friend would try to troll you with back on the playground twenty years ago:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H8AgGp5cqPI

Also vid related, there's an ACE glitch in Super Mario World. This video is of a TAS, but I know of at least one speedrunner who was able to achieve the glitch by hand, which is pretty damn impressive as parts of it involve very precise inputs.

>>15305667

Sounds like a debug item the devs forgot to remove from the game, rather than an out and out glitch. A lot of games have stuff like that, random items or NPCs floating way out of bounds that do useful stuff when interacted with. It's always wild when out-of-bounds glitches allow players to reach those things during "normal" gameplay.

>GTA 3 / Vice City

There's a cheat called "flying cars"

If a car gains enough momentum it will temporarily defy gravity with comical results

If you're skilled enough you can use it to cross islands prematurely

If you spawn a tank, rotate the turret so that it's facing behind you, and spam the fire button you can generate enough forward momentum to stay airborne indefinitely

The tank flies better then the actual planes the game gives you. Although turning is a bitch.

And it has no artificial ceiling. You can reach out of bounds areas like the tops of skyscrapers. You can reach the prop jumbo jets flying well above the map. You can travel high enough to "leave the game" causing it to lock up out of confusion. If you've ever looked at the sky in Vice City you might have noticed one of the artifacts in the sky that leaves a contrail looks like a shapeless blob. That's a low resolution flying saucer. I've probably clipped through it at least five times back in the day.

Persona 1's secret snow queen quest can only be activated by doing the following series of actions. It is a secret alternate campaign that isn't mentioned anywhere within the game itself unless you do these very specific things at the beginning of the game.

I only figured out it existed because there's part of a cutscene shown as part of the opening video where the school freezes over.

Talk to the female student (女子生徒) in Class 2-4.

Talk to Tsutomu (黒瓜) in the Library on the 3F.

Head to the Drama Club (演劇部) at the St. Hermelin Gym on the 1F and talk to the people inside. (Walk through the emergency exit on the 1F, pass through the trash burner in the 1F Passageway, and walk around the outside of the gym and you'll find some club rooms at the other end. The Drama Club is at the first door, but also visit the other rooms cause you'll get some extra equipments!)

Head back up to the 3F and talk to the people in the Student Council Room (生徒会).

Go downstairs to the 1F and talk to Principal Ooishi (大石校長) in the Principal's Office (校長室).

Now go back to the St. Hermelin Gym, go inside the Gym (体育館) and go through the door next to the stage. You'll enter the Gym Storage (倉庫). Take the key item, Snow Queen Mask (雪の女王の仮面), from inside the box. (If the room states "There seems to be nothing here.", you may be missing a step in getting the Snow Queen Mask.)

No, he's saying that the 1 up in Sonic 2's originally cut Hidden Palace Zone doesn't grant you the extra life to anyone except Knuckles while you're there in the (original) final game.

In Crash Bandicoot: Warped, if you get ten relics by beating levels with fast times, you unlock a secret entrance to Level 7. From that secret entrance you can get the Gold Gem, which allows you to access a secret path in Level 11. On that secret path, you have to make it to the final section, where you get chased by a triceratops, then let yourself get killed by the third pterodactyl that you pass. Instead of killing you, the pterodactyl will carry you to a super secret level where you ride a dinosaur and are guaranteed two gems and a Platinum Relic just for beating it because it has no boxes to collect and a ridiculously high Platinum Relic time.

Also there's another secret level by crashing into a particular street sign in one of the motorcycle level, but that one isn't as bullshit, because at least the street sign is unique by having a picture of an alien on it. I still can't figure out how you're supposed to figure out that that one particular pterodactyl takes you to a secret level.

In Castlevania: Portrait of Ruin, equip the cross as Johnathan's subweapon and send it through some of Charlotte's magic as she uses it. Depending on the magic used, the cross may change its shape/size into a number of forms. However, this seems to be a purely aesthetic change, with hitboxes and so forth not altering. Some combinations of Johnathan's cross with Charlotte's various magic, however, will freeze the game.

Honestly the motorcycle levels are some of the hardest ones to beat if you're trying to get Relics. Certainly harder than getting the Gem from the Gold Gem Path. But of course the filthy casuals probably aren't even bothering with the Relics, so you're probably right. I mean I did find the secret level from getting killed by the pterodactyl when I was a kid. But I also found the other one by crashing into the street sign.

I don't recall yggdroids being very strong unless going for some insane gimmick build as a solo character. Also, they aren't in Nexus.

Vampire isn't a proper class, but rather it changes the character's force skills and raises all stats by 10%. Their force boost makes them unable to die for three turns except to instant death, and their force break revives everyone and does more damage for each party member that was revived. They also regen a small bit of health per turn at night, and lose it during day. Obviously they are a pretty gimmicky "class", but they should be powerful when they get to do their thing. Anyway, if you want OP classes, the retarded hero class is deliberately OP because fuck you and all your old classes, and nightseeker does insane damage.

>I don't recall yggdroids being very strong unless going for some insane gimmick build as a solo character.

Yggdroids were insanely strong even if you didn't subclass them, we're talking about a class that has 3 great passives, a damage buff that drains a fuckton of health, but lets you hit ungodly hard for 3-4 turns and also sets up another insanely powerful attack that does more damage the lower your HP is, the bots that either strenghten elemental attacks or absorb them and core dump+sleep mode which works really well considering their high HP, although you kinda need to subclass them into hoplites for this strategy to really work, but really it's all about yggroid subclassed into gladiator for retarded amounts of damage.

>Also, they aren't in Nexus.

Which sucks, i need my megane androids.

>Their force boost makes them unable to die for three turns except to instant death, and their force break revives everyone and does more damage for each party member that was revived.

Same as an yggdroid really.

I'll give them a try once they localize the game, weird that they bothered to bring this game to the west and not monster hunter XX, etrian odyssey is a lot more niche.

In Mario 64 DS's B Button Challenge (equivalent, since B is jump there), a common tactic is to overflow the item ID counter which is an 8 bit integer, equivalent to 4294967296 unique values, until an ID corresponding to the star item is reached.

In some of the Ratchet and Clank games you could access a museum that contains cut content through either convoluted, time sensitive means or direct, very difficult means. I liked the way you could access the museum in 2. On a city planet I can't remember the name of you needed to derail yourself at a specific point on a grind rail about midway through the level and phase through some solid looking geometry which gave way to a corridor which contains reskinned variants of pre-existing early game and current level enemies that only appear in that area of the game. And even when you do manage to clear them out the entrance to the museum only appears within a specific 2 or 3 minute window so you'll need to set your system time to account for the amount of time it takes to reach the entrance from the starting area when the level loads.

Or you could get every skill point in the game. Then you can access it by pressing a button.

I actually found mew under that bus. You have to save right before doing it and take out the batteries in your gameboy without turning off the gameboy beforehand though. Then when you restart you can move it with strength and fight him. He's hard as fuck to catch though. And be sure to bring a low level since he's just level 1.

He's not really that fun to use though, especially when the novelty wears off.

Quite a few games that have hard crashes by means of overflow can do something of the sort, if garbage ends up in save data. You'll end up crashing when the game tries to parse the save file for the file selection screen, and you don't get far enough to delete said save file. If you have some other means of getting rid of the save, like removing the battery, you'll be fine.

You don't really see wholesale irreversible destruction that often, though. Aside from the rare "oopsie, in specific circumstances our uninstaller deleted a little more than it should have" on computers and overflows in very early floppy-based games that allowed writing saves to the same disk, I can't think of anything.

It gets even more ridiculous: the type, level and movesets of the encounters on the Cinnabar coast depends on your name. If you have certain characters as the 3rd, 5th or 7th letter in your name, you can get the regular L-shaped missingno, the 'M glitch pokemon that multiplies your 6th item slot and evolves into Kangaskhan once it gains a level, the Aerodactyl fossil missingno, the Kabutops fossil missingno, or a Pokemon Tower ghost missingno. You can also encounter glitch trainers with glitch pokemon of their own. Also the sprite data for 'M and L missingno is so large or badly null terminated that it corrupts your Hall of Fame, your character portrait data, and the battle UI.

And then there's the 8F glitch item that lets you write map coordinates as data into memory, save it into your save file, and then execute it as arbitrary code. Imagine if they printed this shit in the hints section of a games magazine back in 1999.

So instead, I'll share another from ZZAZZ, his latest A button challenge for Pokemon Blue. He just has to manipulate hardware timing to prevent a crash and repeatedly run a map script to change the exit in Viridian Forest to the Hall of Fame. Best part though, is that he needs the in game timer to reach a specific value range which starts at 41 hours, so he needs to wait for 41 hours before doing that script.

Not video games specifically, but your post reminded me of this story about Toy Story 2's development. Halfway into making the movie, somebody ran '/bin/rm -r -f *' on the hard drive where the movie's source files were saved, and when they went to restore from backup it turned out their backup system had been failing for over a month (evidently their backup drive ran out of space as the movie got larger and nobody noticed). Colossal fuckups like this are equal parts hilarious and terrifying to hear about.

The guy literally went through the code till he found a way to trigger it.

You're essentially glitching the Gary fight to happen again with the variable for him filled which causes the game to pause as a fail safe and then after leaving the pause screen replaces it with a wild Pokemon who's special stat equals the last encountered which for mew can be the first trainer in the cerulean gym, a youngster past nugget bridge or even more randomly a gambler with slowpoke past lavender town.

>>15305826

It's pretty easy, I recently did it on a rom hack of Red which adds the gen 2 pallets and have done it in both Yellow and Red on cart.

To do it as soon as possible you catch Abra but if you leave the needed trainers you can do it when you get fly too.

Save before trying.

Step 1: Walk in a trainers line of sight while mashing pause till you pause where you should be spotted.

Step 2: use teleport / fly to go to cerulean city, you'll get the ! as if a battle begins but till then will leave.

Step 3: Pause should stop working now

Step 4: fight either, Gambler past lavender town or youngster past nugget bridge, in yellow you have to instead fight a trainer in the gym and do grown 4-5 times I can't remember the exacts.

Step 5: Pause works now fly/ teleport again

step 6: walk on the bridge till the game randomly pauses

When you un pause you fight a level 7 mew

That's the joke. Especially since Oak should come off as an authority figure whose advise is to be trusted, yet thanks to game mechanics, doesn't know the name of the kid in one of the four houses in the entire town for years on end, let alone remember what his own grandson's name is. Real question is if the guidebook writer/translator intentionally made shit up, or was given bad information to work with.

I believe NISA's localization of Witch and the Hundred Knight reliably bricked PS3s when you got to a certain part of the game. The original jap release was fine, NISA is really just that incompetent.

The whole crux of it after pausing and flying away was that you had to fight a pokemon with a specific SPECIAL stat, I think it was 21, or 17. >>15305475 is right to remember it that way

Actually, the way passwords in old NES games work is actually having the game execute code to load a certain game state. ENGAGE RIDLEY MOTHER FUCKER just happens to load a weird state, you can actually load lots of weird glitchy states with these "passwords".

I don't know if it outright bricked them, but I know it had a habit of apparently kicking the player back to the XMB, which I've heard could cause system damage, but effectively left the game borked out here, and NISA did nothing to fix it in that incarnation (I have to wonder if they at least avoided that for the PS4 version, but it wouldn't shock me if they created all new bugs). Disgaea D2's western release though could apparently destroy PS3s via casting fire spells melting them, or something.

NISA isn't just incompetent, they're lazy and almost willfully bad. In a case like NISA handling their own parent company's games, I'd think it would be easy enough to send the English scripts (of suspect "translation" quality) to the Japanese branch and let them handle the insertion and debugging since they've actually worked with the code in development, but no.

I'm surprised no one has ever tried suing NISA for this, either the consumers or the original devs. Then again, I'm pretty sure Nips don't give a flying fuck about the state of their games in the west. They just want to sell the license off to someone.

Sure it was a pain in the ass, but at least they thoroughly tested everything. Sony used to require 48+ hour torture tests of idling ingame or in the pause menu, after which the game was expected to continue working without bugs. Now almost every title needs a day 1 patch.

I read two stories in this vein about Crash Bandicoot. The first problem they had was a hardware issue that caused saving the game to corrupt the memory card, but it would only happen when fiddling with the controller during a memory card write. It turned out that the interference between controller inputs, the memory card controller timer, and an overclocked cpu interrupt timer they used to schedule physics calculations was interfering on the bus and sending corrupt data to the memory card. The solution was to lower the interrupt timer back to normal during save operations. Ever wonder why the framerate slows and the music skips as you save the game? Blame quantum mechanics.

The other (potential) physical damage issue was actually from normal operation: when Andy Gavin and his team pitched their prototype to an American Sony rep, who then asked how the level was being read from the disc. By seeking and streaming it into memory as the player progresses. And how many seek operations would that be over the course of the whole game? After some back-of-the-envelope calculations they produced a number of 40,000, to which the rep replied that the CD drive was only officially rated for 20,000… but the japanese executives didn't really have to know about that.

I'm looking for more info on this and can't find anything. And Sonic autists are usually great at documenting things like this. I'm only getting debug modes for 2D games and info on a DX prototype.

>>15318222

The Insomniac Museum is actually in most of the games, and also a similar thing called The Treehouse is in Secret Agent Clank. They all have different ways to access them, but generally, if there's a clocktower in the level, it's probably actually showing the real time (which most people wouldn't notice anyway) and is a clue that you need to go to a certain place at a certain time. Or just get all the Skill Points. Insomniac stopped putting the Museum after character designer and eternally recurring easter egg Dan died, but in Into the Nexus, the last game before the reboot, the last level is an actual museum, and a slightly hidden room at the end of the level has a giant statue of Dan, with actual narration from the museum guide commemorating him. It was very touching. Then in the reboot the secret museum is back but it's shit and has practically nothing to interact with and no explanations for the stuff inside, which was the entire fun of the old ones.

Putting in a gameplay mechanic to make infinite money harder to get is nothing to get upset about. You might as well get mad that you can't just zip around the entire game in debug mode without putting in a code. I get being mad if the devs are doing some online bullshit to try to stop you from using a gameshark or whatever, but this is just complaining that they found a counter to an exploit.

Magi-Nation was full of secrets that sounded like bullshit, particularly the Orathan Flyer and some of the Hyren locations. Ormagon wins points for being a secret trading chain that spans the entire game, but it's hinted at a bit too much to really fit the thread.
