Cheat Manager Project

Recommended Posts

ok I got tired of waiting and I started on a little gui in wxWidgets C++ (it's also to get me started in C++ too so that I can help contribute to VBA-M instead of being just a regular Super Moderator)

Ok I got a start on the project already gui created and a screenshot to go with it

 

No functions as of yet but it will be able to pull from a cheat.ini file the cheats requested and display it :) developed using wx widgets and the compiler being wxDevC++ as a frontend to mingw

I attached the source below if anybody is interested in joining this project

currently listed is all the gba games gbc/gb will be added at a later date

Included too is a compiled copy of the App

screenshots :)

Update - Working on functionality now, it's not 100% ready for testing to be honest but it's supposed to work as when you click on a game the cheats appear on the other side of the app. The biggest part of the project is collecting all the codes.

I could use some volunteers to help with that and build up a Database

[if you are going to make sure you mark down what kind of cheat it is eg: Gameshark]

I might be interested in helping out. I can't at the moment but in a few weeks time I will have some free time so if you're still looking for help then, then I should be able to provide some.

We will need to specify some cheat notes as well, in the case of fire red and leaf green, some cheats cannot be activated at the same time, and others require restarting the emulator to clear from memory.

Well it's not going to activate anything really in the emu itself. It is just going to provide a database to display the cheats and the user has to input them into the emulator themselfs

Oh, that's lame. We should improve VBA-M's cheat "manager" with this, so the user does not have to use Copy/Paste.

Adding information about race condition between cheats might be a good idea. (In the form that VBA-M can verify that the cheats work together and inform the user if not.)

Oh well, just do your thing and we'll see what we can make out of it. Your tool could export cheat lists in VBA format (.clt) for example.
