Every source I've read says that Lucky just fines you 500 coins if you mess with the GameCube clock. Nothing about giving you a Game Over. Maybe that's if you don't have 500 coins? Could someone please clarify this for me?--Kahran042 11:13, 28 September 2007 (EDT)

Yes, he just fines you. I remember when I put PM2 into my Wii he said the clock had been tampered with and that he has to fine whoever tampered with it 500coins, and will repeatedly ask you if you did it. If you say yes, he will want the money, if you say no, then the Lottery wont reopen until you pay him. Though I've never done it twice, so It's possible. User:Candle Jack

Nothing more the article says. Try to do it twice. - Cobold (talk · contribs) 15:45, 28 September 2007 (EDT)
Actually, my sources said that the 500-coin fine was only if you tampered with the clock mmore than once. Were they mistaken?--Kahran042 18:56, 28 September 2007 (EDT)
That's probably a problem when during Daylight Savings Time.-KP Blue 19:11, 23 April 2008 (EDT)
How does the system or the game know you've changed the time? I don't understand how it works. Avengah 03:57, 7 January 2009 (EST)
These days, games are capable of using time-based triggers due to better technology. The GameCube, DS and Wii clocks still function (though unseen) during any game, so their in-game effects are made possible. Some DS games even change based on the day of the week. Dom (talk)
Yeah, I know that, but what I meant was this. You can only change the time while you're in the Setup menu, not while you're in TTYD. Therefore, how does it know you've changed the time when you next load TTYD? Avengah 06:24, 10 January 2009 (EST)
The game checks the GC/Wii's settings and clock. Lucky is a pirate goomba 06:44, 10 January 2009 (EST)
I'm sure it does. However, when the system is off, it cannot possibly know how much time has passed, or if the clock has been changed forwards. I'd assume that it only labels you a cheater if you set the clock backwards, so that the time upon starting the game is EARLIER than the time the file was saved? Avengah 17:44, 11 January 2009 (EST)
Wanna bet? The clock is always at the right time after being turned off. So obviously it must use know somehow, possibly from a clock mechanism. Dom (talk)
I believe as long as the GameCube is plugged in, it is technically still "on" after you turn the power switch off. It's just in a low-powered state, which means the clock continues to function. -- Son of Suns (talk)

I heard that he deletes your save file if done too many times. Is this true? User:Kirby kart

No, the same rumour went around Mr. Resseti. - Ninelevendo.png BlueLightning.png 19:19, 9 August 2014 (EDT)
