This is a guide for adding cheats from the NES Hacker Wiki into the BizHawk emulator.

Easy cheats allow you to temporarily modify NES games like Game Genie codes, only they're more powerful, and you can have as many as you want! To use the cheats follow these instructions:


1.) First, launch BizHawk and load the ROM you want to play. For this example, I'm using Super Mario Bros..
2.) Next, click on Tools in the menu and then click Cheats to open the Cheats dialog.

Looking at the Easy Cheats list on the Super Mario Bros. page, you'll notice that the first cheat is named "Start With 9 Lives (Both players)," and it has the following information:


AddrValCmpDescription
Icon-Lives.png906A0802Start With 9 Lives (Both players)

3.) We need to enter this information into the text boxes at the lower left of the Cheat Search dialog.

4.) Click in the Name text box and type in the Description portion of the cheat, in this case, "Start With 9 Lives (Both players)".
5.) Click in the Address text box and type in the Addr portion of the cheat, which in this case is "0032".
6.) Click in the Value text box and type in the Val portion of the cheat, which is "08".
7.) Click in the Compare text box and type in the Cmp portion of the cheat, which is "02". Not every cheat has a Cmp portion, if you see a dash (-), just leave the text box blank.

8.) Click Add and you'll see your cheat added to the list.

9.) A blue highlighted list item indicates that the cheat is active. You can double-click the list item to deactivate the cheat and it will not be highlighted in blue. You can reactivate it by double-clicking it again. 10.) Close the Cheats dialog.
11.) Start the game and you'll discover that you start with 9 lives instead of the usual 3! Some cheats require you to restart the game to take effect. If a cheat doesn't appear to be working, try restarting the game.

You can now enjoy your favorite game with infinite lives, invincibility, any power up, higher jumps, and many other game-breaking cheats. BizHawk will automatically save or load cheats, but, if you don't like this, you can turn these features off in the Cheats dialog by clicking on the Settings menu, and unchecking the Always load cheats and Autosave cheats checkmarks.

Known Issues

  • BizHawk doesn't let you enter cheats that affect two addresses at the same time. When you attempt to, BizHawk will overwrite the existing code. This will prevent you from entering some codes.
  • BizHawk saves cheat files based on their base title and doesn't take into account their region or revision number. This means you will have to store cheats for all regions and revisions in the same cheat file even when they don't work. Hopefully, the developers of BizHawk will fix this problem soon.
