Firstly, I have read the Cheat FAQ and my question was not answered.
Secondly, the cheat forums appear to be dead, so I've decided to post my question here.
I am running the latest build of 1964 (the binary released earlier this year), and I am running a good dump of Super Mario 64 on it.
I have applied many of my favorite Gameshark cheats to the emulator, all which work perfectly, but one cheat does not function in the game. I have checked and rechecked the cheat code against my physical N64 Gameshark (On which the cheat works) and it is entered correctly. The cheat is for a major graphics hack that causes the graphics to glitch considerably (8032C0BB-005F, which is called "Weird Illusions" on many cheat sites). I have even tried other emulators and my cheat still does not function.
Am I missing something or is it impossible to run this particular cheat on an emulator?
If it is impossible, could someone with N64 Gameshark coding experience help me develop a new cheat that can produce the same effects?
Thanks for your time.
