L22 is Frodo, M22 is Merry, YK5 is Sam, K14 is Pippen, J4T is Legolas, 4B5 is Aragon, N8W is Gimli, ACW is Gandalf. You can further manipulate the code to unlock more things. However, If you raise the middle character too high the screen will get blurry when you look at that character’s stats.

Password editing:
The first two rows of the game’s password are broken down as follows. Every three spaces represent a character. The first space is the ones place for experience. The second place is the tens place for experience. The third place is for the characters equipment.

Hint: Defeating Balrog:
Balrog can only be defeated if Gandalf is not in the party.

Hint: Easy experience:
If you want to gain levels at the beginning of the game without the danger of being hurt, just talk to the people in town. Every time you talk to someone you will gain one experience point. The first two or three levels only require 10 to 15 experience points.

Glitch: High stats:
Do not build any character’s strength or defense over 99, or they will reset to 0.

Glitch: Strange select screen:
Enter ‘9’ for the first two lines of the password and press Start. Delete all of the ‘9’s and press Start. You will have all players and a glitched select screen.
