The purpose of this page is to document all of the known tricks of the game Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (N64).
Because of the nature of this site, we concentrate here on tricks that are difficult to play in real time, but are useful in the making of tool-assisted speedruns. For most of the tricks, a frame advance feature in an emulator is a definite must-have.

Memory addresses

Mupen64

If you're using mupen64, you will need MHS to see these memory addresses. The offset for the mupen64 addresses is 5CEC90 and the addresses can be downloaded here as an .lssave file. Thanks to Anavrin for finding these:
009CEC90: Vertical speed of Kirby (type: float).
009D1F50: Horizontal speed of Kirby (type: float).
00A1A3EC: Horizontal position value of Kirby (type: float).
00A1A3F0: Vertical position value of Kirby (type: float).

Tricks and timesavers

To do this trick, you need to press "R" or any "C" button on the last possible frame before entering a room or map. Instead of pulling out the power-up onto his head, Kirby will get the power-up back in his mouth, which can't be done without this trick.
