Hamster Ball Cheats

  • Print this article

Hamsterball is a computer racing game in which the player controls a ball that must be navigated through a series of courses in a race against the clock. Cheats for the game can be entered to make completion of the game easier, and special content can be unlocked by reaching secret areas to allow for non-standard ways of playing the game.

  1. Hexeditor Manipulation

    • The amount of time available to complete levels can be altered by entering a cheat to make the game give maximum time for completion on each level using hexeditor. The TOURNAMENT.SAV file, located in the DATA folder, is opened into hexeditor, and line 0x80 is edited. The previous entry is deleted, and replaced with a line which reads “3E01 0000 0100 0001 2765 23E9 2734 0000” instead. When the game is loaded, the player now has more time to complete each level. As this action requires the alteration of crucial game files, it is common for a copy of TOURNAMENT.SAV to be made before editing, so that it can be copied over the altered file if it is edited improperly, which could keep the game from running.

    Text Editor Manipulation

    • Another method of cheating with the time to complete each race is to open a data file in a text editor and manipulate it. The RaceData file, located in the games root directory, contains all the information needed to alter the completion time for each board. The file is opened up in a text editing program, and displays the vital information for each level, including an entry for completion time on each board. The completion time can then be manually edited to whatever time is desired for each board. As with the hexeditor cheats, the original file is often copied as a backup procedure before any edits are made.

    Unlocking Dizzy Mode

    • Dizzy Mode is an unlockable cheat mode for the Rodent Rumble, mini game. To unlock Dizzy Mode, allowing the cheat to be activated and deactivated by the player, a secret area must be reached while racing in the tar pits. When approaching the titular tar pit on the level, the player must roll his ball to the back of the tar pit. Once at the back of the pit, the player will see a small opening, which their ball can fit and roll down. By rolling down this passageway, the player unlocks the Dizzy Mode cheat for future use.
