File Name: Jet Set Willy 2 (Spectrum) Cheat Versions

File Submitter: Spider

File Submitted: 29 Mar 2017

Jet Set Willy 2 for the Spectrum, note these are patched versions. For the original files please see here


The download offers two versions:


An original Software Projects release with the 'keypad' modified to accept any code (but no game cheats at all) as well as a modified 'fully immunity' version..


The loader for the 'any keypad code' version was very slightly tweaked from the original in that you get to see the screen (INK 7 vs INK 0) otherwise it is the same apart from a minor attribute swap on the 'picture hanger', this is not visible in the original due to black ink but stuck out when it was INK 7.


The 'full immunity' version varies a bit here with both a colourful 'what's included' page as well as the loading screen. A unique feature I added to this was to 'draw' the screen data after the attributes, giving the impression they are being added at the same time. This effect is really only visible at normal tape loading speed however.


The 'full immunity' version is just that, along with a minor tweak to ensure the 'Trip Switch' is always active too meaning Willy does not have to take a long route around the house to take a quick voyage on his Yacht if needed. Be aware of falling into the water though!


In summary the 'immunity' cheat comprises of:


Fall any height
Infinite lives
Immunity to fire cells
Immunity to guardians
Trip switch is always on

A small bug has been brought to my attention with this version ( thanks Philip! :) ) , the 'immunity' one anyway. The 'walk on water' cheat can cause various objects to not be collectable, namely the ones in the following rooms were noticed:


"Dumb Waiter"

"Main Lift 1"

"Money Bags"

"Nightmare Room"

"Tool Shed"


What happens is the object is treated as a solid platform so Willy cannot collect it by falling onto it.


A temporary fix is as follows: With the game running do a  POKE 30436 , 204 ( #76E4 , #CC ) and press Shift/Space to abort the game. Now restart it and all should be well.



The downside now is Willy can no longer walk on water so he cannot walk into the 'Cheat' room between The Yacht and Deserted Isle, however given that the Trip Switch is engaged all the time this should not be an issue as such.


One small caveat here is it is important to not jump of The Yacht into the water as the lower exit for this screen is set to 'self' so you will enter an infinite falling loop. This seems an acceptable compromise however. :)

Updated / fixed for the 'land on object' issue. :) , The 'information' screenshot during initial loading was also updated to reflect the change in effect.

Thanks for this version, Andy! :)

Sorry Danny, I missed your post somehow! :unsure: , You're welcome. :)


Hopefully, It should be "all good" now with regard to object collection.


The only 'caveat' really is to avoid falling into water such as jumping of The Bow or jumping down into 'Well' , as their 'down' exits are set to the same room so it will result in a permanent loop.  It seemed a sensible compromise as if you do POKE 'walk on water' you can sometimes find some objects remain non-collectable as per my post above.


Thanks extended to Philip on our community here too for initially pointing out the concern. :D
