That gas chamber cheat for Ys II applies to the first Ys game, not the second one.
The music mode bit refers to the correct game, but you're supposed to boot the Data Disk (disk B) with F3, not the Scenario Disk (disk A).

Having said that, I wonder if music modes/sound tests have a place in a "Cheats" section anyway.
The same goes for the remark about the Evil Ring, which isn't so much a cheat as merely a mandatory action to perform in order to beat the game anyway (saw similar stuff going on at for instance the "Aleste Gaiden" section, too).

To the hints for Ys, you could add that wearing the Mask of Eyes during the final battle will reduce the size of the gaps that the boss conjures on the platform with 50% (which makes it a lot easier).

"Cheats" section will indeed be renewed to a different name, still have to think of one, suggestions are welcome "Cheats, hints & tricks" or so. Basically these are methods to use features in games, even though it ain't cheats, it's defined otherwise.

Regarding the YS trick, that came from the file I showed you in Beuningen, started slowly processing it, over time much more info will be added.

Yes ok but the Evil Ring with Blue Necklace thing also applies to Ys 1 and not Ys 2, and so does the trick with the Mask of Eyes during the final battle. But thanks for crediting me. Smile

"Game help" should cover it all.
