60000000 0000 00000000 00000000 There are no cheats for this
60000000 0000 00000000 00000000 game as it's proving to be a
60000000 0000 00000000 00000000 bit of a stinker to find
60000000 0000 00000000 00000000 cheats for it. Standard RAM
60000000 0000 00000000 00000000 cheat finding is unlikely to
60000000 0000 00000000 00000000 have any success as there
60000000 0000 00000000 00000000 maybe no RAM setup or it's
60000000 0000 00000000 00000000 banked too often, so ROM
60000000 0000 00000000 00000000 cheats will likely be
60000000 0000 00000000 00000000 required. If you manage to
60000000 0000 00000000 00000000 find any please post them on
60000000 0000 00000000 00000000 the cheat forums.
