Skiller of Codemasters Project, the same group edisoncarter is in, and CMX of Code Breaker have found the last 13 unknown cheat code combinations. Unlike edisoncarter, who was known for brute forcing the cheat codes by connecting a PS2 controller to a PC and trying various combinations, these guys decided to take it one step further. The difficulty in finding the San Andreas cheat codes so far was because the game has the cheat codes written backwards in hash format (0x867974FB, 0x80750205 etc). In this format, it is impossible to read through the hash values and find the necessary button presses. Therefore we have known the hash values for the cheats for a long time, and have been able to trigger the cheats with a cheat device, but we did not know which buttons to press to activate the cheats.
Skiller came up with an ingenious idea. Teaming up with CMX they managed to put together a program (for which the source code has been released) which emulates different button presses and compares the resulting hash values with the known hash values for cheats. As we already know the hash values for all the cheats in the game, by comparing hash values of cheat combinations with hash values of actual cheats, they were able to find the remaining unknown combinations. In addition to this, Rockstar has used a 32-bit hash algorithm when putting together the cheat codes. This means that there is not only one combination that results in a certain hash value. There are many many many combinations which equal to a specific hash value. Since it is the hash value which triggers the cheat, there are also many combinations for any specific cheat. So far Skiller has managed to find more different combinations than anyone can imagine. He hopes to have all the combinations which result in cheats together in a few days. Look for that soon!

All codes have now been found. I think we owe a huge thanks to CMX, edisoncarter and Skiller. Be sure to check out our updated San Andreas cheats page. Now with all the San Andreas cheat codes found, we are ready for Rockstar to bring on the PC and XBox versions for our enjoyment!
