I present to you junk.bin:

I started off trying to find my way through the game's assembly, but I got lost almost instantly. I then turned to playing around with editing memory values to try to flip whatever bit caused the slideshow to run. I eventually found where the game was keeping track of the menus, and noticed that one of the values changed depending on which menu you were in. If you edit the value and select a menu on-screen, it would change to the menu corresponding with the memory value, regardless of what you select in the game. After plugging in a bunch of numbers into that address, eventually the slideshow appeared!

It's not as good as getting the code, but it can be accessed by using a gameshark with the code 8013CEBF 0038 and selecting any menu option. I did this with an emulator, so I'm not sure if it works on a N64 hardware.

Very impressive! Well done! I didn't think it could be done, tried doing some of what you ended up doing (changing memory values, etc), but got hopelessly lost.

Awesome job.

I didn't do anything!
I want a lawyer, what am I being blamed for this time around that has nothing at all to do with me in the first place?

There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is an area which we call the Lang Zone.

Beautiful. The Giant Bomb community prevails once again! I look forward to the crew watching this later in the week.

You people are the best.

#74 Posted by da5id (26 posts) -

This is flat-out amazing. I hoped someone would dig it up, but didn't really expect it to happen. So good.

How dare you take credit for another man's work by stealthily quoting his post! Yes, it was all you! I refuse any responsibility for the mistake!!

Dave has gotten this from someone by now right?

does this increase or decrease the value of Breakaway '98?

^The best part about that is that it indicates that Dave Lang may be a Lil B fan.

Does that mean that all of the people in the photos get their own wiki pages? They "appear" in a game

Wow, the shear dedication of some duders is inspiring.

My favorite thing from this is Mike puking in the trash can behind Galloway in the last slide. We were all on tilt 2 seconds after that picture was taken.

#89 Edited by Zero_ (1973 posts) -

So now that we've got that settled, anyone want to do some hackz0ring to find out what that last "final secret" in Megaman 9 (10?) was according to Seth Killian.

The Giant Bomb community is by far the best video game community around today. Fantastic work.

Great job can now file that mystery away. What other E3 mysteries are yet to be solved? Who knows... but the GB community is on the case!

Well, there is the actual code, which we still don't know...
