I'm wondering what the downfalls of saving your game whith cheat(s) enabled apart from the message when saving! does this have any detrimental effects on the game? I used a cheat ages ago, and now have progressed thorugh the game, but im really stressed with that message all the time!! Help appreciated smile.gif

It may cause glitches and it will cause your game to muck up sometimes. For example, if you cheat repeatedly (past 650 times or so) then you wont be able to save madd dogg when he jumps off the roof, as he will jump too quickly. Many other effects have happened, but those are the main few

Everyone would probably say cheating for fun is ok

I say cheating while on a mission, is ok. Just try not to excessively cheat. Example, you just killed a bunch of people and they dropped guns. But instead, you use the weapons cheat 15 times for the same exact weapon that was dropped. That's not ok (opinion). Cheat if you must, but keep it to a minimum.

Does this only apply for button cheats? The reason I ask is when I use my codebreaker for infinity health and such it doesn't warn me about codes being activated when I save

Cheating is okay if you finish the game. When you've beaten the game and you want a bit more fun out of it then it's fine to cheat. The occasional weapon cheat is also acceptable.

Meh, I've cheated well over 1000 times (on the PS2 version) and I've never had any problems. I did the same with VC and managed to get 100% without any trouble...

(I only used the weapon/health/spawn cheats, though.)

Cheating isnt good or bad, its just how you look at it.

What i always do is make 2 saves, one for using cheats and one for just straight-up playing and beating the game.

I'd say you're very lucky Mister Teal.

Cheating... Good, Bad?
I say horrible.

I figure it's okay if you're testing the game, or trying to reach a certain point for modding purposes. But cheats have ruined many, many games for individuals.

I always use cheats. But not the you just killed a bunch of people and they dropped guns. But instead, you use the weapons cheat 15 times for the same exact weapon that was dropped. I use infinte ammo. I got the game for christmas. I have cheated 2956 times. I cheated at the beggining and all the way through. But now I cheat for experiments now that I have an AR Max. sign-clinton.gif sign-thompson.gif sign-yee.gif

Cheating = bad to pass a mission

Cheating = great fun to let off steam for a while as long as you don't then save the game and get a permanent advantage.

For example, it's great fun to spawn a jump jet to practice and play with early on and just trash cars on the highway with missiles. Also fly over the restrcited area and see whether you can dodge the SAM's. All good fun.

Same for sticky tyres and max ability /weapons etc. Just fun to blast about and then exit the game without saving.
