Notes

  • Dated almost two whole years before the final version.
  • Was only released in Europe sometime in 2004. A US version was planned to be published by Encore Software but was cancelled.
  • Release build 0.19.375.0
  • There are several debug and development options.
    • After choosing to start a new game, a few options can be selected.
    • The development options menu contains the screen resolution for PS2. Only 640x448x32 can be chosen and will crash the emulator.
    • Pressing L1 + R1 + R2 displaysinformation such as the number of polys, number of actors and models, collisions, etc.
    • Pressing L1 + R1 + R2 brings up the warp select menu.
    • Pressing L1 + L2 + R2 brings up the level select menu.
      • Selecting level00 does not seem to work.
    • Pressing R1 + R2 + d-pad up hides all models.
    • Pressing R1 + R2 + d-pad right hides the level elements.
      • Hiding both the level and models will cause weird graphical effects.
    • Pressing R1 + R2 + circle hides all actors.
    • Pressing R1 + R2 + triangle unlocks all items and abilities.
  • The control options menu contains four different control mappings but all actions are represented by question marks.
