Automatic cheats? How to disable??

Postby tsukinoko » Wed Jan 13, 2016 10:15 pm

I've never played the first game, before, so I thought I'd give it a try; I was really excited to find out what happens after Maxim and and co. initially defeat the four gods.
But I've come across something that I have mixed feelings about: there are clearly automatic cheats in play, as:
- My attacks are a few hundred each, at least - sometimes over a thousand.
- My hero and Lufia both jumped to level 99 after their first respective battles.
- I have all the magic spells I'll ever get.

Whereas this might sound pretty cool, it has made the game boring - as I knew it would, which is why I don't use cheats! (Walkthroughs are another matter, when I'm stuck; like, REALLY stuck.)
I knew that Maxim and co. would be strong, and they were on level 80, but that was just for THEM.
My hero started on 1 and jumped to 99 after one fight.

Anyone have any idea why this has happened, and how to stop it??

Oh, and I think it's affected my first battle with Gades, as no matter how much I hit him, he won't die AND HE WON'T FIGHT. Like, nothing. Not one single retaliatory move.
I know that cheats can sometimes render parts of games unplayable, and I fear that is what is happening, here.

HELP (;_;)

Note: I have looked through the "Cheats" section of my emulator (Zsnes), and it's empty =/

Did you use this Easy Mode patch by mistake? (I've never used this patch but I suddenly remembered it existed)

Maybe you could get yourself a new rom? Sinrevi, is there a way to clear a rom of all patches?

Change the rom name so it doesn't match the patch name.

Or if it's a hard patched rom just get a new clean rom elsewhere.

And if it's indeed the easy type patch, this was in the read me file:
Known Bugs:
-Sometimes you will see some HP damage inflicted on monsters start with a 0. This means you've dealt over 1,000 HP damage.
-During the fight with Gades in Selan you will need to commit suicide since you cannot beat him. This is the only way for the game to progress.
