Debugging Features

There were once debugging commands assigned to various buttons (or button combinations), but the pointers to them were deleted in the final game. They can still be accessed by using game enhancer codes.

Debug Menu

Press Start while playing to open the debug menu.

You might prefer to access the debug menu by opening the Journal (map), which solves the problem of having to disable the codes each time you need to use the inventory. In that case, enter one of the following instead:

Unlike Addams Family Values (SNES) which has tons more debugging features, this is a simple menu that only displays the X and Y coordinates and a list of places to warp to.

Use Continue to resume. Selecting Exit warps to the location selected in Section and Room.

Debug Cutscene Viewer

Press Start while playing to view a cutscene. Use just the first two codes from a set for the game's default behavior, which is to only display the smashed pillar hidden staircase cutscene, shown above. With the full set of codes entered, it's possible to view all 16 cutscenes. Note the game loads a black screen after showing the Congratulations! ending, but just press Start again to proceed.

Debug Reload Weapons And Restore Health

Debug Disable Collision

Press Start while playing to toggle the disable collision flag (walk though walls and NPCs/enemies). An alternate Pro Action Replay (PAR) code (i.e., a RAM cheat) is FF0A32:FFFF which disables collision always but is only a single code.

Debug Inventory

While in the inventory, move the cursor to an item you want to add or remove and lightly tap the A button. Exit and reopen the inventory to refresh the view.

Unused Inventory Items

Two slots on the inventory screen are reserved for items that can't be obtained through normal gameplay.

Pro Action Replay (PAR) code FF76BC:00FF
This is completely unused. No references exist to it in the game dialogue. There is no portrait graphic, either.

Pro Action Replay (PAR) code FF76DA:FF00
The Black Egg is still in the game, but not as an inventory item.
