Spy Hunter Cheat.

This ceat lets you significantly decrease the difficulty of the game, making it much easier to marathon.

When you are first deposited on the side of the road by a truck, as long as you do not enter the street, you are mostly invincible. This is why the trick works. The game will not let you go too far off road. this is to keep you form going off the side of the screen. Additionally when offroading this way you get no points. But see below for the trick.

You can eliminate the enforcer forever and stop the game's difficulty from ramping up!

Easiest way to do it is as follows.

At the first fork go left. at the secodn fork, go right, but whiel you are on the path on the right, crash. You will still have your time rgoing by now, so you can do this. you can now stay on the side of the road forever by steering hard right

Stay here till the timer hits zero. the enforcer will come. simply dodge his shots by shifting down and up. you will come t a bridge out area. If he hits you twice in a row while you are on the edge you WILL still die, so that's why you must keep shifting.

stop halfway off the bridge. you will not die. wait a while. the enforcer will either drive off into the water, or just give up. after about a 15 sec wait continue on. you will float right across the waer, because you are invincible. NOW, when the coast is clear, get back on the road.

The enforcer is now gone for good, and the game will never get any harder. dr torpedo will not show up on the water either. this, naturally, makes the game a lot easier from here on out. simply drive cautiously, pick up supplies, misile the helicopters, and goon, going further then you ever thoguht possible.

Alternatively, jsut play fair until you get a supply truck available and a bridge out sign. board the truck, then stay in the wall, and wait for the enforcer when you are half off the bridge.

This is not a leeching technique. However it is clearly taking advantage of a major bug to decrease game difficulty.

Should be banned technique.

definitely banned by TG.

I knew of the off-road part..but not getting rid of the enforcer for good.

game is easy enough and patternaable with him.

shame controls in mame are like other similar analog control games....where control sucks.

btw, apparently the arcad gas pedal doesn'tnormaly use it'sfull range of motion. you can, on many cabinets, gain extra speed by phstically manipulating the pedal so it goes down further then it's supposed to.

isuspect mame may not be clipping the accelerator to the appropritate level.

Yeah, we came to that same conclusion when this was in GEGOTW two years ago. (Time flies!)

Wow. so ther ei a way to ofroad for th rest of the game AND score?? DAMN. THAT is definitely banned.

the offrading i talk about doesn't do that, but does make it so you can always get away from the tailgaters by makign sure th diffculty doesn't ramp up too much. andi don't think it's possibel to ourun the guy in the van at all. either that or mame is properly clipped now.
