Prince of Persia 3D
PC Games Hints & Cheat Codes
Hints & Cheat Codes
To start the game at a specific level, make a shortcut to the POP3D.EXE file
and add one of the following to the end of the string in the Target Properties
Then start the game and select "New Game". Note: Once this cheat is used, all
subsequent levels will have to be loaded this way because this is overlaying
level 1 and when the level is completed, the game then automatically loads
level two instead of the level after the one initially loaded. It does not work
to save the game as soon as the level loads, then exit the game and restart by
not using the cheat shortcut.
Save Game Hex Cheats
Saved games are the files named SAVE001, SAVE002, SAVE003, etc. in the
directory the game was installed into (C:\POP3D, for instance). Using a hex
editor, the following game values may be adjusted.
First search for the all lower-case word "buffer". It will be at the end of a
long string of paths containing the word geometry. Now count 330 more bytes
from the end of "buffer". This location contains the amount of health the
prince currently has. The maximum value this may be set to is hex 76. Count
four more bytes and this location contains the maximum amount of health the
prince *may* have. This maximum value is also hex 76.
262 bytes past the end of "buffer" are the two bytes that enable the three
bladed weapons and six types of arrows. Hex 1F 1F enables everything.
238 bytes from the end of "buffer" contains the number of type 1 arrows the
prince has. The maximum value this may be set to is hex FF (255). The display
for the number of arrows will not show correctly on the game screen for values
Greater than 99.
4 bytes further contains the value for type 2 arrows. Max is hex FF.
4 bytes further is type 3 arrows. Max is hex FF.
4 bytes further is type 4 arrows. Max is hex FF.
4 bytes further is type 5 arrows. Max is hex FF.
4 bytes further is type 6 arrows. Max is hex FF.
Sometimes the first of the six values for arrows starts 222 bytes past the end
of "buffer" instead of 238 bytes past "buffer". Then the type 2 arrows are at
238, type 3 four bytes from there, and so on.
Magic Trainer Creator Cheat
As the game moves the address for health to different places, a search can be
done for a specific string which indicates the health value. Set the beginning
address to 3000000 and the ending adress to 4000000. Search for
000000240000000000000003 if the prince has 3 full bottles of elixir. The hex 24
in the string can be set to a maximum of hex 76, which gives the prince 10 full
bottles of elixir. This 76 should now be frozen by Magic Trainer Creator so
that the next time it is played, it will be known what string to search for,
However, for some reason, this doesn't always work.
