A: About 15.

*LATEST UPDATED LIST*

Cars Fly
UP, DOWN, L1, R1, L1, RIGHT, LEFT, L1, LEFT
But not like the old Dodo cheat. You have thrust while you're in the air, and can go faster than any airplane. Great for bookin' around the map from place to place.

Traffic is Fast Cars
UP, L1, R1, UP, RIGHT, UP, X, L2, X, L1
Sports cars, hot cars and rare cars. No more searching for a good ride when you need one.

Full Weapon Aiming While Driving
UP, UP, SQUARE, L2, RIGHT, X, R1, DOWN, R2, CIRCLE
This is so cool! You can aim and shoot anywhere with the right stick while you're driving, just like your homies do when you're doing a gang drive-by. CJ even hangs out the window to shoot over the roof. Use L2 and R2 to drive slowly. As a bonus, if you drive a motorcycle, you can't fall off!

Taxis Have Nitrous and L3 Bunny Hop
UP, X, TRIANGLE, X, TRIANGLE, X, SQUARE, R2, RIGHT
Without doing the Taxi missions.

Reduced Traffic
X, DOWN, UP, R2, DOWN, TRIANGLE, L1, TRIANGLE, LEFT
No peds and only an occasional car on the street. Parked cars still spawn. Great for cruising.

Orange Sky and Time Stopped at 21:00
LEFT, LEFT, L2, R1, RIGHT, SQUARE, SQUARE, L1, L2, X
Just like those early preview screens Rockstar released. It's 21:00 forever, so rob all the houses you want.

Gangs Rule the Streets
L2, UP, R1, R1, LEFT, R1, R1, R2, RIGHT, DOWN
Streets deserted except for gunmen fighting in the streets. No cops or regular citizens. No traffic except in gang territories.

Spawn Dozer
R2, L1, L1, RIGHT, RIGHT, UP, UP, X, L1, LEFT

Infinite Oxygen
DOWN, LEFT, L1, DOWN, DOWN, R2, DOWN, L2, DOWN

Mega Punch
UP, LEFT, X, TRIANGLE, R1, CIRCLE, CIRCLE, CIRCLE, L2
Punches send people flying into the next block. One hit kills. Watch out, peds have it too!

Gang Members Everywhere
LEFT, RIGHT, RIGHT, RIGHT, LEFT, X, DOWN, UP, SQUARE, RIGHT

Funhouse Theme
TRIANGLE, TRIANGLE, L1, SQUARE, SQUARE, CIRCLE, SQUARE, DOWN, CIRCLE
Hotknifes, baggage handlers, tugs, hotdogs, mr whoopees, pizzaboys, bf injections, caddys, quads, go karts, mowers, and banditos. Peds are food service workers and clowns. Get goofy outfit. Most vehicles have hydraulics, including police vehicles!

Sandstorm
UP, DOWN, L1, L1, L2, L2, L1, L2, R1, R2
Not the same as the Foggy Weather cheat. It's bright and windy. The wind and limited visibility makes flying airplanes and helicopters more challenging.

Traffic is Country Vehicles
L1, L1, R1, R1, L2, L1, R2, DOWN, LEFT, UP

Cars Float Away When Hit
SQUARE, R2, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, DOWN, LEFT, LEFT, L2, X
Tap any vehicle with your car and it floats up. Can be used to get above the max height limit. If you like skydiving, tap a heli and get in before it gets away and you can go as high as you want.

Adrenaline Mode
X, X, SQUARE, R1, L1, X, DOWN, LEFT, X
Slower gameplay and greater strength. Punch harder, send people flying with melee weapons, and shove cars around with your bare hands.

Recruit Anyone (9mm)
DOWN, SQUARE, UP, R2, R2, UP, RIGHT, RIGHT, UP
Recruit anyone, up to 7 people. Recruits get a 9mm if they don't already have a weapon. To recruit someone who's attacking you, fire one bullet at them and immediately press UP.

Ninja Theme
X, X, DOWN, R2, L2, CIRCLE, R1, CIRCLE, SQUARE
Peds are all Asian dudes with katanas. Traffic is black PCJ-600's, and BF-400's, and FCR-900's. Even cop cars are all black. Get katana.

Lock Wanted Level
CIRCLE, RIGHT, CIRCLE, RIGHT, LEFT, SQUARE, TRIANGLE, UP
Wanted level never increases. Doesn't erase stars you already have.

Six Star Wanted Level
CIRCLE, RIGHT, CIRCLE, RIGHT, LEFT, SQUARE, X, DOWN

Slut Magnet
SQUARE, RIGHT, SQUARE, SQUARE, L2, X, TRIANGLE, X, TRIANGLE
You get the gimp suit and sluts chase you around with sex toys. Warning: may crash your game!

Never Get Hungry
SQUARE, L2, R1, TRIANGLE, UP, SQUARE, L2, UP, X
Kudos to System Error and SINZAR for figuring out what this does.

Always Midnight
SQUARE, L1, R1, RIGHT, X, UP, L1, LEFT, LEFT
Clock stopped at 00:00. Weird sudden weather changes. If you kill yourself, it'll stay at 12:00.

Recruit Anyone (Rockets)
R2, R2, R2, X, L2, L1, R2, L1, DOWN, X
Recruits get rocket launchers if they don't already have weapons.

Infinite Health
DOWN, X, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, R1, RIGHT, DOWN, UP, TRIANGLE
Makes you mostly bulletproof and immune to fire, punches and melee attacks. You can still be hurt by explosions, falling, getting run over, and drowning.

Hookers Pay You
RIGHT, L2, L2, DOWN, L2, UP, UP, L2, R2
Without doing the pimping missions. Thanks to Bone` for figuring out what this does.

Released by Rockstar:
Elvis is Everywhere
L1, CIRCLE, TRIANGLE, L1, L1, SQUARE, L2, UP, DOWN, LEFT

The first one works. I didn't notice any difference with the second, though.

How did you find them?

It's no joke. These are new cheats for San Andreas.

And by the way, cars fly works a lot differently from Dodo Car in VC/GTA3. You have thrust while you're off the ground. It's an easy way to book around the map faster than any airplane.

All Traffic is Fast Cars makes it generally choose sportscars for random traffic, but in some areas like Grove Street the local set of cars overrides it.

Here's another one:

Full Weapon Aiming While Driving
UP UP SQUARE L2 RIGHT X R1 DOWN R2 CIRCLE

This is so cool! You can aim and shoot anywhere with the right stick while you're driving. CJ even hangs out the window to shoot over the roof.

You're f*cking kidding me!

(I mean that in a good way)

I can't test this at the moment, but your reputation gives you credibility in my eyes. So it's basically being able to shoot like your gang members do in drivebys?

Exactly, just like your gang members shoot in a drive by.

Of course they had to leave it out because then who's driving the car?

It's not an inside source or anything like that. I found them by scanning codes at high speed. I wired up a game pad to a PC's parallel port using optocouplers:

It was great to find an excuse to do a hardware project for a change. I haven't done wire-wrap since I was a kid.

I'm certainly not recommending anyone try this. It takes some serious software to make this work.

DRIVE-BY
using d-eagle, spaz, m4 minigun, etc.


A - get busted/wasted
B - select the weapon u want to use for the drive-by. only bullet-using guns work (except sniper)
C - input the following cheat (courtesy of edisoncarter)
Full Weapon Aiming While Driving
UP UP SQUARE L2 RIGHT X R1 DOWN R2 CIRCLE

if u exit the vehicle the glitch goes away - the next time u enter a vehicle it will switch back to the SMG.


viola! CJ looks really funny when drive-bying with the minigun.
all the guns have the same rate of fire as a SMG, so d.eagle will kill ppl faster than usual, and miniguns will destroy cars SLOWER than usual. yeah i know that sucks, but its still great:)

this glitch is especially fun if used with peds riot, peds have weapons, rhino armour, (and peds attack for an extra challenge)

Found one that was at the top of my wish list. I love cruising the desert highways, so I'm so glad they added this. Thank you R*!

Reduced Traffic
X, DOWN, UP, R2, DOWN, TRIANGLE, L1, TRIANGLE, LEFT
No peds and only an occasional car on the street. Parked cars still spawn. Great for cruising. Still enough cars that you're not totally stranded if you wreck your ride.

Orange Sky
LEFT, LEFT, L2, R1, RIGHT, SQUARE, SQUARE, L1, L2, X
Just like those early preview screens they released, like the one where Carl has a giant hand. (Giant hand not included)

I'm glad the whole game didn't end up all orange like that.

I'm keeping the first post in this thread updated with the full list of new cheats.

It doesn't take me long to identify these. If I get stumped, I'll post like I did with the taxi one.

Gangs Control the Streets
L2, UP, R1, R1, LEFT, R1, R1, R2, RIGHT, DOWN
Streets deserted except for gunmen fighting in the streets. No cops or regular citizens. No traffic except in gang territories.

I was going to call this Anarchy, but it's not like the first-day Anarchy everybody thinks of with people running around looting. It's a mature Anarchy. There's nothing left to steal, nobody goes outside because it's too dangerous, and gangs are forming up to fill the power vacuum.

It happens everywhere, not just in gang turf. It wouldn't be as clear what Turf War means if you haven't seen the cheat. Does it mean it'll start one of those "Our Turf is Under Attack!" things?

Great idea.

Not necessary to use any software, though. If I understand the principle correctly, this can be done with a few counters and logic chips with LEDs used to display the current combination. I might actualy try this if I find enough ICs.

Gangs Control the Streets has no cops. You won't get a wanted level if there's no cops to see you.

No offence but they're probably wont be any of those cheats except maybe the last one and the 2nd one

No Cops & Infinite (Insert thing here) actually involve you changing the games code so much it needs a cheat device, plus what do you think he does searchs a program for them, he discovers the codes then trys them see what they do

Actually they do. We've found references to them in the game code and they can be turned on/off with cheat devices. We just don't know the button combinations.

FYI The guy got that list from the bottom of the San Andreas cheats page.

I put on the cop uniform and was using the minigun and stachel charges to "restore" order to the streets.  I blew up an ambulance and it gave me two stars. 

Did the ambulance arrive to heal people, or did you blow up one parked somewhere? That would kinda spoil the lawlessness theme if an ambulance showed up. That or a firetruck would be an oversight.

What we really need is a Spawn Packer cheat. Instant jump ramp.

You're free to post them I believe, since edisoncarter is not working on behalf of our website, although these forums are under our network.

Shouldnt that be up to Edisoncarter as he was the one who discovered the cheats?

Thats what he said, edison isn't working for us, although a link to the place where it was found would be nice. tounge.gif

And I can't believe people visit GTA Domain for news wow.gif

You're free to copy these and use my descriptions if you want. It would be best if you use the same names for them that I do so we keep them known by consistent names.

We will know when all the cheats have been found. Someone examined the executable and figured out that the game has 90 cheats in total, so there should be about 30 left. We're still a ways from running out.

Thanks. I don't think a seperate topic is needed, since it would be nice to have feedback etc, but a bunch of 8-year-olds posting every other minute is not needed either.

12 different buttons on the PS2 times an average code length of 9 characters = 5159780352 combinations to check at least, so give the man some time, yes?

System could have scanned through that in a few hours, maybe days, depending on the frequency with which keys are accepted. Unfortunatly, you need to be looking at the longest combination, not average lenght, and that is 12 keys, which gives you about 8x10^12 combinations, and even at 10^7 combinations per second, which would require 360MHz on the input (He said key is accepted once in 3 pulses), this would take 8 years of non stop run time to scan through all codes.

Someone needs to get SA running on an emulator with a debuger, then we can find the jump that leads to "Cheat Activated" message, then find all places that have jumps to that location, allowing someone to find all possible button codes.

There's not much in the way of working PS2 emulators, and the ones that do run games definantly won't run something as advanced as San Andreas. I think edisons method is the viable at the moment.
