MadCowBalls2 Cheats


Cheat Codes:
Submitted by: David K.

Game Settings:
Written by martin_m5

MadCowBalls2 was original created to load a lot of settings from a .ini file. It 
was later scaled down due to prevention of game bugs as it could make the game 
unplayable if the game was not able to load the file.

When you start the game it will check if this settings file have been updated. 
If the file is empty or doesnt exists it will be created with default settings. 
The game will also run a performance test (how many times can the computer render 
the start screen in a given time space). The graphical setting are set after. 
The user may also change the setting in the launcher and at default there is a 
fallback (if the FPS is lower than 30 for a period of time it will lower the 
settings in game).

If you want to edit the settings file you can find it under:
The file name is "MadCowBalls2.ini".

Set to 0-7 enter normal mode or 8 for arcade if you want to start the game

How to Get a High Score:
Written by martin_m5

There are likely a few ways of getting a high score but here is what i have found 
while testing out the game.

1.Stay Alive
Dont have more balls than you can handle. More than 3 can keep you busy.

2.Angle The Balls
Use the edges of the pad to send to balls towards the borders. This angle play will 
give you more time to react. This may also be a bad strategy depending on the level 
setup. You dont want too many bounce chances, keep the bounce somewhat predictable.

Dont collect all if you dont know what they do. If you take one red, wait a bit to 
make sure that you understand what it is doing. Find the best ball upgrade for the 
current level and stick with it (fire ball is my favorite at low levels). 
Collect extra score bonuses when you have nothing else to do.

4.Multi Bonuses
Make the level explode! Try to break a lot of bricks at the same time. 
This will give you multi bonuses and they give you a lot of score and may also drop 
you extra life.
