You can change the number of laps for each player:

then: 8569-8572 -> x+48 (x=nr.of laps for each player)
For this trick you must first type unl.time pokes cause we
destroy the time check procedure. Do not raise computer
player's laps higher than 3, cause it can't ride after.

Didnt find a cheat yet. After typing the secret number it executes

If your reset key doesn't work then POKE 26487,96:RUN
This one was easy. Author says there is no cheat mode while
playing, but then at the start of the game it checks for
I LIED!' and if found it pokes the apropriate location.
I found a "fixed" version that has this cheat disabled
and also overwrites our poke. Search for a9 4c 8d 33 95
(lda #$4c; sta $9533) and change $4c to $60 (JMP->RTS)
Also search for 60 d0 00 88 10 and change $00 to $08.
A better way to fix the game is to load it, then type
poke16576,96:poke16571,8 and then save the game.



Through the TrapDoor
Game is trained but is still difficult to complete cause there are
many misleads. Here are some hints: (but not too many :-)
level 1: Brut jumps to the key and pushes the candy. Berk flies.
level 2: Berk jumps over then kills monsters with the cannon.
level 3: weight is foney. Berk flies and misses the trap door falling.
level 4: skull is foney. Kill bonehead w/t cannon. Carry cannon flying.
end: Home, sweet home.
If you want trainer then press fire1 at intro, dont touch the space.

How are pokes presented in this file:

At first line the name of the game is given then the description of the poke
is given, the poke itself and at the end if possible there is short
description of what poke destroys in the game.
At the end there is a 'SYSnnnnn' or 'RUN' or 'WHILE IN EDITOR' given.


If there is SYSnnnnn given at the end:
-reset computer after a game is started
-enter desired poke(s)
-restart entering SYS given at the end of description.


If there is RUN given at the end:
-load game
-enter poke
-start with RUN


If there is WHILE IN EDITOR at the end (or SYS):
-freeze game
-enter poke
-resume game


Some special meanings:
fffc-ffff -> aa,bb,cc,dd  means you should do
poke fffc,aa
poke fffd,bb
poke fffe,cc
poke ffff,dd

I welcome all submissions and comments! 

These tips have been successfully tested by myself or another person.
Please mail me if you know any other tips or cheats to C64 games.
If you can test them, please do so before mailing them to me. In any case,
state clearly whether they are tested or not.
Note that I am not including pokes, but Drago Fiser has got a WWW page
with C-64 pokes. Niilo Paasivirta keeps The Great C64 Cheats Compendium
which also has pokes and other cheats.
------------------------------------------------------------------------
Some key-combinations have to be typed in. Others demand that you press
and hold all the listed buttons. I've tried to separate them by denoting
a sequence of keys to be typed in after one another with a ',' in between,
i.e. C,H,E,A,T. If the keys are to be held in at once, I've separated them
with a '+', i.e. C+H+E+A+T. Sometimes the order in which you press the keys
are not important, sometimes it is. Note to C64-emulator users:
Make sure that the involved keys aren`t mapped to a joystick or something.
The emulators also doesn`t seem to handle "hold-a-lot-of-keys-down-at-once"
cheats very well.

Some of the games can be resetted, poked and started again - probably
those which have "sys xxxxx" listed. Some require Action Replay or
some other freezer cartridge.

An asterisk (*) means that I have tested the cheat and it is more
likely to work than the others.

Exclamation mark (!) means that the same poke has been found from at
least two different sources - more likely to work.

	throw a gem.

        Try typing "HEY DUM DERRY DOL" in Merry's house, Tom's house
	and other places.

        Try "ELBERETH" when meeting black riders.

And here is more hints from
"http://www.lysator.liu.se/~ekman">Fredrik Ekman
"mailto:ekman@lysator.liu.se">(ekman@lysator.liu.se):

First of all, it [LoTR] was distributed by Melbourne
House, not Microprose.

You can simply kill the Black Riders. To do this, let one or more
hobbits go out on the road (make sure none of them has the ring).
Then, every time the riders enter the room, KILL RIDER WITH SWORD

(provided, of course, that the hobbit in question has a sword). The
riders will just move on, but will of course return later. Repeat this
until all riders are dead. Do NOT use the command LOOK before you have
killed all three. If you do, there is a risk that the program will
hang itself.

You do not have to go through Moria. If you let all the characters go
past the dangerous area of the pass one at the time (by telling them
to go E, SE or something like that, don't remember the exact
directions), no-one will get killed.

If you do choose the passage through Moria, let Gandalf go one step
ahead of all the others when making the final run for freedom (SAY TO
GANDALF "E, E, E, E, E, E, E, E" or something like that). The usual
message about his death will then show up, but when you get out, he
will be there waiting.

Alternatively, you can kill the Balrog. Just KILL BALROG when he comes
charging. If everyone gets a hit on him, he should be dead within the
first round.


Finally, here is an alternative way to solve the first part: Leave one
hobbit (Merry, for example) behind in Bree. Have him enter the pub
where the three riders are sitting. Then, take the rest of the party
to the Last Bridge (with the help of Strider). BECOME SAM. SAY TO
FRODO "LOOK, EAST". BECOME MERRY. Because the character in your
control is now with the riders, they will not be teleported to the
final location, but since Frodo (with the ring) is there, the game is
finished. (This may seem pointless, but it allows you to solve the
game without having to find all those jewels.)

I checked up the exact solution for getting past Caradhras, by the way.
After having survived the blizzard, you must go east twice, then save (in
case some of the idiots in the Fellowship should choose not to obey your
instructions) and then say to each individual character "E, E, SE". You
may want to be careful about the order you tell people since Sam, for
instance, will always follow Frodo.

Another interesting "feature": When you are chased by the Black Riders in
the beginning of the second part, all you need to do to escape them if
you are not mounted, is to turn back west, the way you came. They will
then, ehm, overshoot you or something. Of course, this does not solve the
problem of getting past the ford, but at least it avoids you being killed.

(NP notes: In the first part, you can also confuse the Riders
by running towards them.)


"The Pawn"
	Some C64's could have a faulty VIC chip. This fault is not
	shown under Commodore's standard diagnostic tests. If your
	chip is faulty, the Pawn might crash.

	10 POKE 53265,63 : POKE 53265,31 : GOTO 10

	The above program tests the chip. If it crashes within about
	one minute, you have a faulty VIC chip.

"Rats"
	The third encounter can be solved by waiting in the graveyard,
	with torch, until Ferris gets dragged into the tomb by a rat.
	Get a cage, go to the ruins, and enter the crypt. Go into the
	tunnel, grab the rat, and cage it. Dash back in the van.

Make your way to the reeds and cut them down.
Enter the subterranean lake and swim to the left, using the reed as a snorkel
. Keep going until you hit a submerged object and pick it up 
it's a highly useful crowbar. Once it's safely in your possession, swim right
and keep aging until you reach a ladder.
Climb up the ladder and walk right until you reach the steps.
Go down to enter the underground cave system.
Walk left and keep going until you find a location with two vines.
Climb down the longest vine, cut off the vine to the left and tie it to the
piece on the right.Climb down the tied vines and when you reach the bottom
walk to the right and open the hatch with the crowbar.
Collect the fruit and climb back up the vine.
Walk right, until you come to a passage 'too narrow for you to pass through'.
Throw the fruit. Stripy will chase after it and return bearing the torch,
which he will duly give to you. Go back to the vine room and climb down the
vine again. Enter the hatch swrtch on the torch and climb out again.

Climb up to the top of the vine and cut it down, then walk to the vine on
the left and climb down until you can go no further.
Tie the two vines togother, then climb down again. Walk left until you
find the hatch you opened earlier, then go through it to enter the Treen's
underground complex.
Climb down the long ladder and walk right. Climb down any one of the three
ladders and walk left to find a Treen guarding a closed door.
Use the crowbar to open the door, then walk left.
Kill any Treens you encounter to get special pass cards (you need three of
them). Make your way down the network of ladders and gantries until you
come to an unlit room. Use the torch to find your way about,
then go down until you come across two cells which you should open with
your pass cards to free your friends.
Make your way back up to the darkened room and walk to the left you
should now be standing in front of a large laser.
Don't use it just yet.
Walk left until you enter a compiex of interchangeable mirrors.
There are three main reactors hidden in the complex.
You must set the mirrors so that when the laser beam is fired by the cannon,
it is deflected by the mirrors to the hole in front of the reactor.
Remember to destroy the reactors in order (look at the numbers stamped on
the side of each one). Once you've blown up all three computers, go up to
the third computer where you will find a door has opened. Walk left,
killing any Treens as you make your way to the Mekon's lair.
Lob ten grenades at the Mekon, avoiding his bursts of laser fire.

Once you've disposed of the green bonced one you are given two minutes
to escape. There's an easy way out, but that's the bit you've got to
figure out for yourself...

------------------------------------------------------------------------
First of all get the aniseed balls (which make Odie follow you).
Go to the back door, where there's a bone.
Pick it up and put it to the left by the door.
Odie now opens the cat flap, allowing you free access to the rest of the
locations. Go and get the lamp and find Nermal.
Give him a good kick and pick up the clockwork mouse.
Go to the health food shop and drop the mouse next to the man.
A 'Donut' magically appears, which should be picked up - and be careful
NOT to eat it.
Go to the giant oscillating rat, drop the donut and it runs off.
Kick open the chest and get the key that's contained within.
Return to the starting location and drop the key.
Get the trowel, walk to the hardware shop, and use it by the man.
A dollar appears from nowhere, which should be collected.
Return to the health food shop, use the dollar next to the man and get
the bird seed. Take this to the right hand side of the park,
drop it and a bird flies by. Leave the bird and go and get the key.
Return to the park and jump on the bird (don't drop the key) and it
drops you in the City Pound.
Enter and walk right into the cell and Arlene is rescued.
Garfield can now live happily ever after...

TRAPDOOR
------------------------------------------------------------------------
General Tips

Berk will need the help of various monsters and objects to complete
his tasks of preparing disgusting grub for The Thing.
The monsters all come up out of the Trapdoor whilst the objects are
located around the basement. If Berk misplaces or loses some of the
things he needs to complete a task, he can leave that task and arrange
things for the next one. Objects will always remain where he last put them.
Alternatively he can hurl himself down the trapdoor in desperation and the
game will restart.
Berk can pick things up, tip, carry and push them.
But he must be in exactly the right position to do so.
That goes especially for pushing things, where exact positioning is very
important. Berk can wander around wherever he pleases so it's a good idea
for him to explore all the locations and try to memorise where various
things are - he'll have to use them all eventually.
There are three levels - the ground, the balcony and the cellar -
and Berk can also move forward or back.
It's also an idea to practise moving the lever that opens and shuts the
trapdoor so that you can do it quickly in an emergency.
Berk has two sidekicks, Boni and Drutt.
Boni is the talking skull who, when picked up, will sometimes give bits
of advice - and sometimes he won't bother.
Drutt, the spider, just gets in the way and seems to be of little use.

First Task - A Can of Worms

Pretty simple, this one. Make sure you pick up the can as opposed to a
container that looks like a can. Go back to the trapdoor and open it to
let out the worms. Remember to shut it quickly so that nothing else comes
out. Grab as many worms as you can before Drutt eats them.
There's a clever way of getting rid of Drutt using the trapdoor as a tool.

Remember you can always get more worms by opening the trapdoor again.
Pick up the can and place it on the dumb waiter.
Then you've got to find a way of sending it to The Thing -
should be no problem there. When he's scoffed them, he'll say nice
things to you. Wait a little while and he'll shout down the next order,
which will probably be...

Second Task - Fried Eggs

Open the trapdoor and let out the giant chicken and shut the trapdoor
quickly so that nothing else can escape. To actually get the monster
to lay an egg you'll have to flick something (to be polite) up its posterior.
The thing you need is a bullet - and we're not telling you where to find it.
If you lose the bullet, another object will do - even Drutt. Here's a clue,
the trapdoor itself comes in very handy here as a flicking tool.
Oh, and you'll need a container for the eggs.
You'll know when the monster is ready to lay an egg because its eyes get
bigger. When you've collected at least four eggs in the container
(remember that eggs break easily) it's time to set about cooking them.
No points for sussing out that the stove comes in useful here.
When you're sure the eggs are cooked, send them up in the dumb waiter.

Task Three - Boiled Slimeys

Getting more complicated. The slimies are down in the flooded cellar.
Take the bucket down with you and grab a few.
You've then got to get them into the big red pot to boil them.
But Berk's not tall enough to tip them in.
So you'd better find a higher vantage point.
With the slimeys in the pot, you can let the flame-thrower monster up
from the trapdoor - again, you'll know him when you see him.
Somehow, you've got to use this nasty piece of work to boil the slimeys.
By the way, they're not ready if the pot isn't steaming.
It must still be steaming when you send it up in the dumb waiter.
Remember to get rid of the flame-thrower when you've finished with him.
But he won't go down the trapdoor, so try crushing him - you'll need
something pretty heavy.

Task four - Eyeball Crush

You must be a real berk if you can't suss out which monster to use for
this one. The real problem is finding out where to get the eyeballs.
Well, you won't find them anywhere - you've got to grow them.
That's why there's a packet of seeds lying around.
Find a reasonable place to plant the seeds and watch as they grow
magically into plants. The plants (surprise, surprise) will produce
just what you were looking for.
All you've got to do now is to collect the eyeballs and turn them into
the required crush.
With help from the monster and the vat (the big tub on the stand) you
should be able to work something out. And then you've got to collect
the juice in a suitable container and send it up to the The Thing -
he's getting pretty thirsty. By the way, the monster bounces round
all the rooms and will eventually go back down the trapdoor if you
wait long enough.

Task Five - Tidy Up

There are many ways to tidy up but the general idea is to collect
everything movable and chuck it down the trapdoor.
You need to save one edible item for the ghost to take it when he
appears. Close the trapdoor. Now it's time to open the safe. What
safe? You won't find it downstairs.
That must mean The Thing has it upstairs? When you've got the safe,
you have to work out a way of opening it.
We're going to leave you to wrestle with that problem, suffice
to say that you'll need to use a rather heavy object.

Crystal Castles
------------------------------------------------------------------------

If you don't want all that faffing about on early levels, then run around
on to the bck left corner (behind the building) of the first screen and
press the fire button. You'll be transported to the first screen of level
three and given a 140000 point bonus and two extra lives.
There's also a extra warp on this screen: wear the hat, go up the lift
to the top level and run down the hidden ramp until you reach the bottom
(in the middle). Press fire and you will be warped to the first screen
of level five, netting a 280000 point bonus in the process. This warp
is pretty tricky as it requires some nifty timing and some precise control
of Bentley to get him in the right position before the hat runs out -
the warp does not work if he's not wearing the hat.
Battle through the first two screens of level five and you'll get a to
a screen called 'The Crossroads'.
Make your way up to the back left of the screen, stand there and press
fire to complete the final warp, taking you to the first screen of level
seven, increasing your score to 420000 and restoring any lost lives.
The game also has a facility which allows you to carry on from the level
on which you died, although you must complete the first screen on that
level to be able to return to it, otherwise the warp will take you to
the next level down. A door appears in the wall of the first screen -
run into it, then press fire to activate the warp.
This warp system only takes you as far as level eight (giving a grand
score of 490000 when it is used), the last two levels have to be
completed from there.
