The Game Guru is a utility disk for the 3DO that serves two functions:
- It allows you to compress the items saved in the 3DO system memory to allow for a greater number of saved games
- It acts as a Game Genie or Game Shark in that it allows for input of codes that allow for cheats.
- Secret Video Scene:
At the main menu choose "Enter Code" and select the Game Guru saved file called "GameGuru.CFG" file. When the code screen appears, enter "IHAVETHEVIDEO2" and press C. You are then taken to a secret video made from the creators of the GameGuru.
- Different Music:
Hate the music that you start with. Do the same thing as above up until the enter code part. Enter "SONG2" to get a new song. You can enter "SONG2" to "SONG9". To get back to the original music, type "SONG1"
- Additional Background:
Same as before, but enter code as MLGTXXF. Reset the 3DO and you get a rendered 3DO logo in the background.
- Same thing as before only this time type "IHAVETHEPOWER". You'll get a warning saying that there's no tech support for the secret area. Now you have the hex-editor along with a whole slew of other options. BE CAREFUL! If you want to disable the advanced mode, either delete the GameGuru.CFG file to restore defaults, or enter the code "IDONTWANTTHEPOWER"
- You Don't Have The Power:
Enter code "IHAVETHEPOWER2" and you'll get a "NICE TRY" message, that's all this code does.
