    There are some extra levels not immediately available. Using the code 02024282:XX, where XX are decimal values, these can be played in any mode. The last level in Time Trial mode is Tundra Tumble (value of 31).

    The other levels are as follows:

    32 – Jungle Jig; 33 – Sunset Scrap; 34 – Ice Escapade; 35 – Beach Brawl; 36 – Boss Bop; 37 – Boss Bash; 38 – Boss Brawl; 39 – Boss Bother.

    The last four levels lack backgrounds and are almost impossible to play.

      What am I supposed to do? I am using a VisualBoyAdvance v1.8.0 beta 3, and I’m having the same trouble as Refurs.

    I’ve tried it on 2 emulators (visual boy and boycott advance) and it doesn’t work! All that comes up is a white screen. Yet Banjo Kazooie GR beta works fine.

    @rareware fan you have to try rename in Gba for me it fully works and tested on Visual boy advance :)

  4. Refurs

    Cheats -> Code -> At Code I enter “02024282:32”

    Then it still starts the normal courses. Only the character screen is glitched then.

    Wow, it’s so amazing that Diddy Kong Pilot was in such an advanced state! I’m so happy that we can get our hand on those beta cartridges. They also announce that today they gonna reveal an other beta download, can I dream for a Conker’s Twelve Tails? (Man that would be so EPIC) Anyway, superb site as always, thanks a lot for sharing those awesome news! :)
