Very interesting to find this cheat. Would you also be able to find the cheat in Firehawk (thexder 2) in a similar way? There is a debug mode you can find in the game's sectors but I have no clue how to activate it (and it is not the USA cheat)

I haven't found the game in ROM format, only in a disk image that did not opened on the disk tool that I have.
Do you know where to find the game as individual files?
Is there any ROM version ot this game?

Fire Hawk (thexder 2) is only released on 2 disks. If you boot the game with the SELECT key pressed you get this debug screen:

Not sure if that is what you are looking for?

That is an interesting find, but not the debug screen I ment. There is things in the actual debug mode that allows you to cheat stuff, like energy level etc.

You can start on any level (1-9) in ' Thexder 2' by writing some code to the Clockchip.

@ AxelF: I think you can also modify your energy max (and supposedly any parameter that the game would store in a save file) this way.

No, not really... There is no enough space in RTC for this... You can do it by hacking PAC storage though, if you have one. (BTW there is also hacked HDD-version that uses file instead of PAC)

In fact, you can use both. When a hardware PAC isn't found, it's emulated on a .PAC file on the HDD.

You can even copy the .PAC file to/from your PAC cartridge using the PAC Saver utility.

The (original) game uses the clockchip to store save data when there is no S-RAM found.
There was once a cheat (looking a bit like the listing above) that modified it so that you could not only choose the mission to start at, but would also give you maximum "Energy Max".
That's why I think this. Possibly, weaponry that's procured will not be registrated indeed.
