Emulator Issues #5135
Metroid Prime - Cheat code problem - update game ini
I have a problem with a special cheatcode in Metroid Prime (1).
The "Have Phazon Beam" cheatcode has no effect,
but all other codes working fine. The point is,
in older revisions the "Have Phazon Beam" code
is working properly.
In the moment I use "3.0-371" and it doesn´t work.
I tried "R4800" and there is no problem, code works fine.
I compared the code from "3.0-371" and "R4800" and they are equal.
So, my question is: Is the cheat code system messed up ?
Or is there any other reason why it doesn't work ?
I have Windows Vista x64 using Dolphin x64.

Did you make sure, in your 3.0-371 installation, to tick the "Enable Cheats" option in the Dolphin Configuration window (under Idle Skipping and Dual Core)? I don't think this option is enabled by default.
(Is the "Have Phazon Beam" code similar to the "Can use Phazon Beam anywhere" codes found on ARCentral?)

How shall "all other codes working fine" if cheats are disabled ???
How shall "in older revisions the 'Have Phazon Beam' code
is working properly" if cheats are disabled ???
Also I clearly said that it´s only this ONE special code.
I mean if you read my issue correctly you should
see that your questionis is superfluous -_-
"Have Phazon Beam" code similar to the "Can use Phazon Beam anywhere" ?
Shouldn´t matter because as I said the "Have Phazon Beam" code is
working with older revisions but in the newer revs it has no more effect.
So the code itself CAN'T be the problem.
The "Have Phazon Beam":
This code is equal in older and newer revs...
Anyway, thanks for advice. I'll take a look on ARCentral.
Edit: None of the "Phazon Beam" with "This Code must be on" codes
from ARCentral is working with Dolphin and or my game version.

I also noticed this problem a couple of days ago myself, and I’ve tried every region version there is, and every thinkable kind of code with phazon beam in it I could find... none of the these work anymore, not since version 3.0 and up (tough, I haven’t tested the absolutely newest version yet)...
What I’m wondering now is, well have some one fixed this yet, as its obviously a dolphin related problem, as the older ones (as previously mentioned by other users here)like 2,0 could use it without any problems, but... as 3.0 is a lot faster on my computer than 2.0 was I’m not going to revert to the older just to be able to use this cheat in 5 to 15 fps slow motion...
So, please for the continued use by fans of metroid and your other wise amazing emulator, like myself, please try to fix this little issue, if you haven’t already, and please reply to this as fast as possible, and... well, please bring good news when you do...
