View Full Version : Pilotwings Bad Shadow FIX!!

It took me forever guys, especially without a gameshark, but I did it. If you emulate the great pilotwings, you will notice that it is difficult to play with that lame shadow. Being an avid gameshark hacker, I decided to create this gameshark code for everyone who loves the game as much as I do.

NOTES:
1) This code has many lines...why? Actually, to improve stability - to hack out the code that generates the shadow produced great stable issues. Insead, I had to generate code that told the game that "we're at a place where a shadow is not needed - do not draw it"
2) Since it uses activators, only one code is actually active at once. This is needed because the same memory location is not used for every level/test...and without activators great graphical issues come up (people invisible in other levels etc.)
3) Because of activators, other shadows still work fine...you will notice the shadow over the water still works perfect (nothing was wrong with it)...but when you go over land it does not mess up anymore...rather the shadow dissapears.
4) I hope you enjoy it, and have fun, and don't forget to select "Remember Selected Cheats" in the options of Pj64, or whatever emulator you are using, so you don't have to re-enable it everytime.

These codes are for the USA version of Pilotwings.

*LAUGHY BAD SHADOW FIX* (works for all levels, including birdman)

WOW... Great work Laughy! It works a treat, thanks a mil... Finally I can play it now.

Doomulation, lay off him, maybe he got a bit excited, wouldn't you? It kinda does belong in both areas though, even if it was a double post.

Thanks again Laughy..

Not many ppl (most n00bs) actually do their own codes and add them.

Ahem... How do you Add the Codes??? /Ahem :)

See shot below

& looks interesting will test this & if perfect add to the file.

Nice Work.

But next time Say what you want to say in Pj64 & link to the codes on PJ64 Cheats (If people go there or not) It is the right place)

& also Laughy i hate codes submitted that leave users guessing.

Would you care to tell everyone What Region these are for ? :)

I would hate a User to probs on using wrong Region Codes

Yes, sorry about the double post, but the reason I did that was because this is not, in fact, a cheat - rather it is a fix so those willing can play this game...so it is best suited for the normal section, where it can be exposed. However those who have played pilotwings on the emulator for the first time, and thus search for codes to get rid of them, would most likely visit the cheats section...which is why I posted one here as well. It's not like the double post is hurting anyone, rather it was in hope people would be able to play pilotwings on their emulator (which, I think, is the point of pj64 in the first place).

The Gentleman - I'm sorry, I did forget about that...I tested this on the USA version. If a different version of the codes are needed I'll try and port them.

Have fun guys,

Laughy

Well its a Hack & a shadow Removal but still good for those who wish to have it removed.

If you want to remove the shadow on land for The euro & jap regions feel free to do so I will add it to the file.
