AI: The Somnium Files/Debug Mode
This is a sub-page of AI: The Somnium Files.
|This article is a work in progress.|
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
Much more. This mode needs to be documented more thoroughly. All of the information is located on the Uchikoshi Discord server, but we need to transfer it to TCRF so users outside the Discord can access this mode.

How to Install Debug Mode
A debug mode exists in the final build of the game and hides a treasure trove of secrets. Install this tool using Melonloader to launch the PC release of the game in debug mode. The debug editor can play real time cutscenes, show portraits with lip sync, show character setups in investigation scenes, and edit flags in real-time.
You also need to extract the English LuaScript zip and stick that in the "Ai The Somnium Files\StreamingAssets" folder. If done correctly, the game will boot into a green screen with text.
Built-in Debugging Tools
Figure out how this works.
This tab has the title "Animation" and a film-roll icon, but by default has no functionality. It may require a model to be loaded and in focus.
BGM and SFX Player
On the right-hand side of the user interface sits a lone musical note icon. Click it, and you can override any music or sound currently playing with your sound effect or song of choice. They loop correctly, too!
Document these variables and check if the list changes during active gameplay
This displays and allows editing of a number of debug variables.
Document all of the flags. Their names are meaningful given context, so it should be doable, it's just a long list. Also, some additional flags can be added while playing the relevant scene.
This lists all flags in the game, and allows them to be toggled or modified. This includes some flags that enable debug behavior, as well as all event flags for progression through each scene in the game.
Figure out how this works.
This tab has the title "Event" and an arrow icon, but by default has no functionality. It may require a scene to be loaded and in focus.
Despite the Japanese title of "Background Viewer" , this is more like an investigation scene viewer. It shows any investigative scene and the characters in it, but they are all T-posing. Any 'background' scenes with dynamic cameras where the characters don't move will also be visible in this viewer.
Loads in-engine cutscenes. Go to the "SFG" dropdown after selecting background viewer to load up a cutscene, and click "reset" to stop the cutscene and then you can load a different one. If you do not press reset, the cutscenes will continually load over each other and eventually crash the game when it runs out of resources.
Document each expression. The discord has a list of each bust, but it needs to be formatted for TCRF.
Displays each character bust and expression as they appear in dialogue boxes. Upon each selection, the game plays a sample voice line to demonstrate lip flaps.
|This page or section needs more images. |
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.
Begins the game as normal, but with access to the debug tools.
Document what all of the options are, including "test" and "Z0".
Jump to any scene in the investigation part of the game, by selecting the chapter and then the individual scene.
Jump to any Somnium gameplay sequence in the game.
Displays the credits.
Opens a blank display, where you can safely use the debug tools to load arbitrary backgrounds.
BG Viewer (Recording)
It is unclear what the difference is between this and "BG Viewer". Judging by the name and the names of scripts it loads, this mode was used by the developers to record any pre-rendered movie sections for the game.
Document the order cutscenes are recorded. Bypass blocker videos and render all of them, there are still clips missing. Cross-reference info from the decompiled video_info.lua.
Plays a variety of short cutscenes in sequence through the "AI Sight" GUI, and renders video to a "Captures" sub-folder in the game folder, for use as prerendered segments in the final game. Several videos are set to loop and so prevent progress through the sequence, the first being a shot of Mizuki's Somnium, however editing game files to remove these videos allows the sequence to continue. Videos are rendered at a 45 degree angle so that they can display diagonally in-game. Each clip is rendered twice, once at 512x512 30FPS (for the Switch version, denoted by the suffix _1k_30) and once at 1024x1024 60 FPS (for the PC version, denoted by the suffix _2k_60). While playing the videos, in most cases, sound effects play, but not voice acting. However, some clips do have dialogue associated with them, particularly if they play that dialogue when viewed in the final game. However, the exported videos have no audio regardless. This mode seems to perform poorly with VSync enabled, potentially crashing. A table of the videos currently known to be rendered follows.
|Video_A2_begin10_10_BossRoom_Boss_00||Mizuki, sitting in the column of the carousel at Bloom Park, looks up at Date while holding a bloody ice pick.||In her office, Boss discusses Mizuki with Date, during saikAI.|

|Video_D5_wrap_10_10_SaitoAgt_Iris_00||Iris hugs Date in the Lemniscate lobby, to blackmail him.||Labelled for use as a flashback while Iris is dying in the Kabasaki Chemical Plant, during kekkAI. However...||...this sequence of clips seems to be unused, as in the final game the sequence of flashbacks here does not occur through AI Sight. These clips all have dialog associated.|
|Video_D5_wrap_10_10_SaitoAgt_Iris_01||Date gives Iris a piggyback after she collapses in Bloom Park.||Same as above.|
|Video_D5_wrap_10_10_SaitoAgt_Iris_02||Iris performs "Invincible Rainbow Arrow" at Sunfish Pocket.||Same as above.||This clip is further notable amongst this sequence, because this scene isn't one of the flashbacks in the final game.|

|Video_Somnnium_A4_01_01||A strange clip of Ota's Somnium with nothing of note in frame.||This clip is extremely strange. It's evidently corrupt, and it loops. It's the only clip named for a Somnium chapter, when no Somnium features an AI Sight segment, and it's a clip of the same chapter it's supposed to be used in.|
|Video_Test||The same clip of Shoko's body being discovered.||Judging by the filename, rendered as a test of the video recording system. Obviously not used in the final game.|
Loads Dance mode, the same as you'd unlock on the main menu after completing the game.
Text Language Selection
Choose the in-game text language. The debug menu itself does not have an English translation, but two options do change when language is set to English. Namely, "System Language Selection" becomes a duplicate of "Text Language Selection", and "Flowchart Debug 2" becomes a short corrupt string.
Voice Language Selection
Choose the in-game voice language.
System Language Selection
Check what exactly this affects.
Choose the in-game system language.
Simulate Platform [Steam]
Check if this has any meaningful effect.
Choose which platform the game believes it to be on. This does not change button prompts, but may stimulate other platform differences if they exist. Upon selection, "[Steam]" in the name will change to reflect your selection. The options are "Steam", "PS4", "XBOX" and "SWITCH".
Determine what the "Scene Diagram" was supposed to be.
Opens a small variety of menus in the game. Options are "City Map", "File", an unused and missing "Scene Diagram", "Options", "Save" and "Flowchart".
Determine exactly how this mode makes a decision at a branch, if it's preset or random, if the game will ever reach Resolution Ending and/or stop.
Automatically plays through the game at extremely high speed. When the game reaches an ending, it restarts from the beginning, making different choices.
Initialize Read Flags
Seems to reset the list of event flags to their default state.
Opens a menu which displays input values for a game controller.
Confirm Global Flags
Determine what this option is supposed to do.
Selecting this option causes a lua error.
April Milestone Build
Opens a menu with "Somnium Part" and "From the start of the scenario". The former tries to load a non-existent file, and the latter starts the game from the beginning. This may have been for testing the game's demo, which consists of the Bloom Park investigation and Mizuki's Somnium, but the relevant files are not in the final game.
PadView seems to be an external piece of software, perhaps from the Unity Asset Store? Would be good to find and confirm this.
An alternate controller input display.
Toggle each node in the flowchart between locked, unlocked and completed.
Toggles each item in the game's collectible "files" between locked, unread, and read.
Toggles each achievement in the game on or off. This affects your real Steam account, so be careful!
Flowchart Debug 2
Document the specific effects of each of these options.
Toggles flowchart states relating to the game's system of "The case remains unsolved" plot locks.
