it disables the achievement forever on that save file if you use weapon/health/wanted level down cheats. if you use vehicle spawns (not helicopters), then no achievements will be disabled.

i would use the cheat where you get full health, full armour, and full weapon ammo for teir 2 (i think tier 2)
you call GTA-555-0100 and it only disables the achievement you get for killing 20 criminals through police computer, which you can easily get on another file, so i use it all the time :)

just get the achievement for capturing20 criminals through police computers and get the one for staying on a six star rating for 5 minutes then you can use any cheat you want cause those are the only 2 cheats that get disabled. or just turn off auto-save and don't save then you can just dick around then reload your save and its like nothing ever happened

You just can't get achievements on that save file anymore (if you save after using the cheat).

the thing is that GTA is notorious for its cheats. they give you the feeling that you're a God. It just have such an extensive array of cheats, and you can have soooo much fun with them. GTA is in its own class for cheats, and i personally think they're acceptable due to their level of entertainment.
