Nopons are more like Mr. Saturns than chuchus really.

XBC - Just some fuckin' around. No progress.
Anyway found some guides on how to make PSX gameshark codes. I think, if my assumptions are correct, about how CC does the stat boosts after battles, what I want to find is a memory address that gets set to exactly 2 after beating a boss. Or rather find all the memory addresses that do this. There will be a lot. Then I see which of these gets decreased after I get a non-boss stat boost. There will still be a lot of these
And then I just brute force it the rest of the way, by zeroing them out with the GS until I find the one I want to keep zeroed out.
I'll eventually get the right one or claw a whole in myself.
