Spectaculator 8 POKE Help needed!

Post by Bolton80 »

Hi,
I'm trying to apply the following POKEs to Jumping Jack to change the controls to Q, W, Space.

POKE 30356,251: POKE 30374,79: POKE 30383,71 = change left/right to Q,W
POKE 30370,223 = changes jump to SPACE

I found this on Tipshop.

I am loading the game, going to Tools - Poke Memory, and then entering address (eg 30356), and then value (eg 251) and applying. I repeat this for all 4 POKEs, but when I go back to the game, the controls haven't changed.

What am I doing wrong please?

For anyone who's at work and wants to help without their boss thinking they're playing JJ ;) :

OK, here you go, think this may do it:

O/P and SPACE

Code: Select all

POKE 30356,127
POKE 30370,223
Q/W and SPACE

Code: Select all

POKE 30356,127
POKE 30370,251
POKE 30374,79
POKE 30383,71

Thanks @Morkin
That works perfectly. Looks like the original POKE was wrong!

Out of interest... say I wanted to use CAPS SHIFT as jump instead of Space. What would I change?

Trying to get my head around how these things work!
