Run on Gameboy Player (All GBA Videos)
F7E66278 D85F65EC

These GBA Videos, I am lacking a good dump of . (They have been patched by their releasers, to provide GB Player compatibility, which unfortunately, overwrites the same area of code, that these action replay codes latch onto for the master code. As such, I am not able to verify that I have the right offset, and I am not willing to guess on that offset.)

These GBA Videos have yet to be dumped.  (and whoever does decide to dump and release these, please release an unmodified dump, as I have a modified emulator for the purpose of hacking these videos. (one that makes it think it is running on a Gameboy Player)).

The way these GBA video paks know that they are running on the gameboy player, is by following these steps.

  1. Load the Gameboy Player Logo data into VRAM.
  2. Load the Correct Pallete into VRAM
  3. Read 0x4000130 about 10 or so times. (The Gamepad input register.)
  4. If it returns All four directional buttons as being pressed at the same time. (Which is normally impossible to do, unless your control pad is broken, or you have taken it apart.), then the Gameboy Player has been detected, and Gameboy Player enhanced features such as rumble can be used.  For the GBA Video paks, all they do, is lock up into an infinite loop if the gameboy player is detected.
