This is about the best Bdash clone I have encountered on the ST, nice sober level design and some neat features I had not seen in similar games…I really like how the torch is used, quite ingenious!
What you need
TOS v1.00 image file
The game (I used D-Bug Menu Disk 132)
Firstly, if you are not familiar with the emulator, consider reading the documentation
Quick start guide or trial by fire
Setup the emulator from the Options menu (spanner icon) with the TOS mentioned above, set the model to STE – it will complain about the TOS, just click ‘okay‘, set Monitor (Low\Medium res) and set memory to 512 kb. Now insert the game disk using the Disk Manager, and start up the game – get past the title so you are actually in-game.
Now, mash the F12 key and bring The Boiler Room into focus. Now click the ‘Browsers‘ drop-down menu, and click on ‘New Instruction Browser’ menu item. You will see a window appear like the pic below
Type in the offset shown (E946) in the upper left corner. Now click in the Hex area, where it says 5379, and type over the 53 with 4A, so it looks the same as the pic below
That’s it! If everything went smoothly, you will now have infinite lives. If you also wanted to get rid of the pesky timer, just do the same as above, except the offset to punch in is D542 and you replace 9280 with 4E71. Anyway, hope this wasn’t too hard to follow and thanks for reading!
