    New program that lets you enter a controller button cheat and will search for it in your ROM and let you edit it. You can change the button sequence to anything you want, and in some cases you can even shorten the button sequence to just 1 button.

    In the screen shot, it searched for the controller button cheat in Mortal Kombat (Genesis) that enables the cheat menu (Down, Up ,Left ,Left ,A ,Right ,Down). It found a match, so I set it so that you only have to press B to activate the cheat, then clicked the patch button. I tested the newly patched ROM and pressing B brings up the cheat menu option.

    Will have it on my site shortly.

      Small update to the Controller Button Cheat Search/Edit Tool above (updated to ver 1.0a).

      I Forgot to mention that patching some Genesis/32x ROMs can cause the ROM to fail the checksum check that some games use. If you get a blank red or black screen and the game won’t run with your newly patched ROM, it almost certainly means it’s a checksum issue, but can be easily fixed with a master code, or a program like Patchinator (available on my site, or RHDN). See the Readme for details. There is no change to the program besides adding some info to the "Help" button and the Readme file.

      The updated version is now on my site and at RHDN (you can use the links above).

        Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas (PS2) already has a Windows version with lots of PC trainers.
        My advice is focusing on the titles that are exclusive and only released for PS2.

        For example: Resident Evil Outbreak PS2

        or Resident Evil Code Veronica Dreamcast / PS2

        Thanks in advance.

          Almost finished with the GTA: San Andreas Editor, but may look at those others a bit later.

              Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas ROM/ISO editor.

              Works on both US versions (1.03 or 3.0) and will auto-detect which version you have.

                Here's a new program for NES / SNES games. Can get it from my site: https://codehut.gshi.org/NES-SNESdownload.html

                Also available on RHDN with a full description: https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/1679/

                This program will let you enter a RAM address for a NES or SNES game, and will search your ROM and see if it can find places where your RAM address changes things in the game. It will display up to 10 matches (ROM addresses) that it finds, along with old and new values or opcodes/instructions. You can then patch any changes you make into your ROM.

                A few of the features:

                * 8 different types of searches.
                * Will work on any NES or SNES game and for any version or region, although it may not always find matches/ROM addresses for every RAM address.
                * If you don't have a RAM address, it has a section that will try and find a RAM address for you. If it finds a RAM address, you can then use that new RAM address with any of the 8 search types to try and find matches/ROM addresses.
                * Dump button creates a text file with all the ROM addresses and lots of other useful information.

                In the screenshot below, the RAM address for lives was entered (0035) and it found one match. I adjusted the number of lives to 9 and patched it into the ROM. I played Castlevania 3 and I started with 9 lives. Can also use the same RAM address for lives (0035) and do a "Infinite" type search, then patch the ROM and you will have infinite lives.

                    Have an updated version of the Sega CD & Genesis Search/Patch Tool (version 1.1)

                    Fixed a bug with 8 bit “number” matches that wasn’t being patched correctly, added an option that lets you choose between Sega CD or Genesis RAM address ranges, changed the way that the backup copy works when patching. See Readme for more details.

                      NES-SNES Search/Patch Tool version 1.1 update. Improvements: Much better results/compatibility for the "Start w/more", "Subtracts", and "Adds" type searches. Added new search type: "Start w/more (indexed w/ X)". Improved the RAM search feature so it will find more matches/ROM addresses. Added a button to automatically assign values to your ROM addresses when using the RAM search option. Improved instructions for the RAM search feature (when you click on the "Info for value search" button). Added more info to the Dump text file.

                      In the screenshot below, I entered the RAM address for lives for Zombies Ate My Neighbors (7E1D4C) and selected “Start with more type search (indexed w/ X)”. Clicking on the “Search ROM” button brings up one match at ROM address 0?00000880, along with a value of 2. You normally start with 2 lives, so this is the ROM address that decides how many lives you start a new game with. You can adjust the new value to any value you want from 0 to 255. In the screenshot, the new value was adjusted to 9, and then patched into the ROM. Playing the newly patched ROM lets you start a new game with 9 lives. Using the same RAM address for lives, if you select “Decreases by 1 type search (indexed w/X)” and click the “Search ROM” button, it finds 1 match. Patching the new opcode for that match/ROM address gives you infinite lives and seems to work fine.

                        A new Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES) ROM editor. Will work on any version, any region, with or without a ROM header, and will work on most, if not all ZAMN ROM hacks. It uses search patterns to find everything in the ROM instead of static ROM addresses, which is why it will work on any version.

                        EDIT: Has been updated to version 1.1 (fixed a bug with European ROMs).

                          There is an updated version of the Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES) ROM editor that fixes a bug where the editor couldn't find a few ROM addresses in European ROMs. Version 1.1 is available on my site or RHDN (same links as above).

                            Another update to the Zombies Ate My Neighbors (SNES) ROM editor (version 1.2). Added an adjustment for Giant Baby hit points (HP), and fixed a bug where a new Snakeoid HP value wasn’t getting patched into the ROM. Same links as before.

Fairly easy to use, but added numbers to help guide people. The Help button has all the info. It uses 12 bytes for the pattern search, which should be plenty in most cases. I thought about hiding those 12 text boxes, but thought people would like to see what's going on.

                                Example: If you have Game Genie codes for a USA version of a game, but you have the European version and the USA codes don't work, this program will make new codes for your European version.

                                Sorry for bothering you, but can you make a similar Action Replay region code porter program for GameCube games? Very sorry for taking some of your time.
