This is a Debug version of the game compiled on February 1st 2001. It features a frame counter, faster splash screens, and several debug features.

Notes

Splash screens appear for only a few frames, and two have compile information on them

A few cheat codes have altered effects. "!cheater" and "!bingo" can be entered multiple times, and "!version" does not toggle a player coordinates display.

  • Intermediate game: As above, start in Erromon

During cutscenes:

  • B: skip cutscene. Also skips any changes to inventory or party.
  • Start: Camera menu - allows to change focus and position of camera. May cause crashing if option doesn't change position.

  • L+DpadL: load less map chunks at a time.
  • R+DpadR: replace map objects with intangible boulders
  • R+Start: Toggle debug message queue
  • Z+Start: smaller debug menu

  • R+B: Toggle full minimap (when applicable)

During Combat:

  • All Game states: View and change every event flag
  • game state cheats: toggle the states for certain or all game objects.
  • Add Party Members: add a member to your party
  • clear everything out of Inventory: removes all items not equipped on party.
  • load only the inventory from a saved game: displays credits over gameplay instead.
  • toggle game settings: toggles switches, which do not seem to be implemented.
  • toggle monster attack: monsters will not initiate combat.
  • turn off everything but teleporters: disables all game objects that don't move player
  • Access database: menu with every item in game. pressing A adds that item to inventory.
  • hunt for bad reference objects: teleports the player every few seconds to each of the objects on the current map. With debug messages on, displays object type and position. Enemies will not fight you while this happens.

During game Crash:

  • A: Cycle info screens
