Will it work on the collectors edition of this game? 'Cause I have it and its not working, and I tried like a million times. I was in Evening Lake and I tried it, then I went to a level and it still didn't work. I tried the code for the "Duplicitous Larcenous Ursine" clip (I love that clip xDD) but it still didn't work =[

A couple years ago I tried these codes and they worked (I'm not sure if it was the collectors edition of Spyro YOTD or not but I don't see why it wouldn't work on there. I just paused it, entered the main code, then the up button and L1 and it still didn't work =[ I also tried a couple more codes for different levels and clips and stuff and it didn't work. Do you have any idea what I could do? I suppose I could restart the playstation but I'm not sure if that would solve the problem... =[

I usually don't play this game, but these cheat codes sound pretty cool, so I think I might play it again! smilie
#101 Crystal Dragon 02:49:56 30/01/2009
I've found a cheat code,
Return Spyro to normal color: Up, Left, Down, Right, Up, Square, R1, R2, L1, L2, Up, Right, Down, Left, Up, Left
Also, putting in the 2D Spyro cheat again will reverse its effects.
I hope this helps smilie

I beat the spyro dawn of the dragon game like 100 times so its easy for me to beat it.

I'm guessing that you are talking about Ross's signature, "TheDarkCynder". At least you looked at the link. It's too bad the topic is closed, though smilie. However, there is something VERY important that NEEDS discussing: dark52's avatar is:
A Spore creature.
Okay, so let's talk 'bout cheats. So if you could make a cheat for this game........

  • What would you call it?
  • What buttons would you press at the Pause Screen to activate it?
  • What would the cheat do?

Remember, it has to be your own idea. This is mine:

  • Cynder Play
  • Triangle, Square, Circle, X, Up/Right/Left/Down
  • Allows you to play as Cynder. Pressing up lets you play as ANB Cynder (smilie ). Pressing right lets you play as TEN Cynder. Pressing left lets you play as DOTD Cynder. Pressing down will let you play as Dark DOTD Cynder. Each Cynder has free flight, so fly into the void if that's what you want. Plus, each Cynder gets their own breath ability. They are exactly the same as in DOTD, so yay for no Mana limits. ANB Cynder gets Fire, TEN Cynder gets Fear, DOTD Cynder gets Shadow, and Dark Cynder gets Convexity. However, in places like Frozen Altars, you use a specific breath for as long as you visit. The same applies for powerups. Each enemy dies in one hit as usual, though. However, Dark DOTD Cynder can swim in lava, acid, deadly goop, and other stuff like that. You're still stuck with the usual HP system, but Dark DOTD Cynder gets an extra HP. This cheat also works on STD and GTG.

Go to Selene's link, and there's a funny little poem about Ripto.
