    I seem to remember a "select start" added on to the end for a couple of the game boy games. – Jeffrey Jul 7 '10 at 23:51

    @Jeffrey, that's how many of it used to memorize it, but it's not technically part of the code- the "Start" is just what actually starts the game, and you add the "Select" to move the indicator from One- to Two-Player if you're playing with someone else. – Jaydles Jul 8 '10 at 1:42

    No, I clearly remember having to hit "start" or "select start" in some games to activate the code (ex. TMNT). It did not start the game. – BlueRaja - Danny Pflughoeft Sep 10 '10 at 16:18

  • @Bora I wish, they don't even have ALT+#### input options. – Noctrine Dec 10 '10 at 15:09
