The Necky in Jungle Hijinxs

Postby Stone » March 7th, 2008, 10:24 am

Ohh, I really hope this isn't common knowledge or known since this game came out.
I played this level after I saw this wellmade map of Qyzbud (to find these supersecret 3-life balloons)and then I accidently found out that you're able to walk right through the Necky without getting hurt.
At the moment I can't remember if there are other levels with an similar placed Necky to test it there.

EDIT: Just to avoid any further confusion, this seems to work for (E) 1.0 only.
EDIT: Oh man, what happened yesterday? It will also work with (U) 1.0 and (U) 1.1!

wow, my first and probably last post helping you guys :D
I think i had mispelled Jungle Hijinxs, now it should be correct. I only know this stage as "Dschungel-Fieber" 8-)

That doesn't seem to work for me... Maybe it only happens in specific version(s)?

Edit: Seems to work in the PAL 1.0 version, but not 1.1, so perhaps it's something they fixed... ?

By the way, "Dschungel-Fieber" sounds an awful lot like Jungle Fever to me. ;)

I think you're right Qyzbud, it doesn't work on my original cartridge so i must have PAL V1.1. Does anyone know when stopped selling the 1.0? :D
And yes, Jungle Fever would be the literal retranslation. Let's see if there are better translations for Hijinxs.

EDIT: I've been testing all 1.0's [(E),(U),(J)] and it works for (E) only. So this glitch isn't included in these 1.1's and the 1.2.
EDIT: Oh yes Simion32, it works for (U) 1.0 and for (U) 1.1 too! It was late in the night and i was tired... :)

Woah, neat find.

I'm gonna go try this now... provided my cart isn't V1.1... :/

Edit: Yep, I has Version 1.0. Awesome glitch... :P

by the way... how do you check the version number of the game? :/

Good question, but now we know a method to find out which PAL-version you have. 8-)

I does in fact work on "Donkey Kong Country (U) (V1.0) [!].smc". You might have had miss-named files or something...

There are A LOT of enemies you can stand in without dying. Most of the mini neckies in the game for example. A lot of people have said that the TAS is cheating because he is walking through some enemies without dying...

Good to know, i never watched TAS-videos that closely :)
These TAS people really do know anything. Now it would be interesting to check every enemy in every version, if they haven't already done that 8-)
