Debugging Features

Hmmm...
To do:
Finish documentation for this menu, preferably once I get more accustomed to the series.


Turn on Action Replay code 030061E4:00 when first booting the game up, then press A at the Enix logo to go directly to the debug jump screen. Once reaching the menu, turn the code off.

Debug Jump

Allows the player to go to numerous areas in the game. It seems like only PRGN00 actually affects anything.

  • A - Goes to the specified area.
  • B - Goes to the Debug Menu.
  • Start - Sets the selected value back to 00.

When changing PRGN00, the player will go to the following areas:

  • 00 - DEBUG - Goes to the Debug Menu.
  • 15 - ダンジョンマップ / Dungeon Map - Dungeon map screen.
  • 16 - つうしんけっかがめん / Communication Result Screen - ???
  • 17 - スタッフロール / Staff Roll - Staff credits roll.
  • 18 - Same as above.
