Hacking the Resident Evil 2 Demo

Postby JMMREVIEW » Fri Nov 10, 2017 7:28 pm



In 1998 Capcom released a 10 minute timed demo for Resident Evil 2, 4 months after the game came out.
As a kid I always wondered how much of the game was on the disc, no matter how hard I tried I could never "get to the end" of what was on the disc, I thought that maybe the whole game was on there!

In this video I hack the timer on the Resident Evil 2 timed demo and use cheats to unlock hidden rooms!

Nice, I remember years ago doing the same with the Silent Hill timed demo that came with the PAL UK version of Metal Gear Solid. I think there was 20 mins of playable game, when hacked it ran to nearly an hour before it crashed going through a door.

This is a demo of it and might be the timed one ..

Blast from the past....

I remember getting the CRASH Demo Tape with treasure island dizzy on it (Crash Edition)
The thing was, the cheats worked on the demo....

There was a huge Crash logo stopping you, so you activated the ICANFLY cheat to.. erm... Fly over the logo..

Yeah I have been meaning to go back and play the Silent Hill demo now that I am an adult... as a kid I was too scared to play it, no joke I couldn't play for more than a few minutes!

I remember that too, I was one of those who submitted codes to magazines, wow this seems so dated now.


You have to do it now JMMREVIEW, see how far it takes you. If the demo linked above isn't timed then request it, someone will have it for sure, my copy of MGS has the SH demos book but not the disc (bummer!)
