Debug Menu

Debugging for fun and profit.

Located at SNES address $808325-808335 is an unreachable code block. In it, memory address 7E0414 is compared against #$5257, which almost certainly is meant to represent ASCII RW for programmer Robert Walker. If the comparison is true, the debug menu opens.

Game enhancer codes must be used to access the debug menu.

Debug Misc.

Located at SNES address $808336-808347 is another check for #$5257 in 7E0414, and if true, 7E0A8E is set to $FFFF, setting walk through walls and disable collision detection. Pro Action Replay: 7E0A8EFF + 7E0A8FFF

At SNES address $819549-819561 is a third unreachable code block which adds items to the inventory screen if 7E0414 is a non-zero value.

Removed Options

Full options Final options
Loads of options! ...are you kidding me?

A number of options were deleted in the final release:

  • Difficulty: Easy, Normal, Hard

7EFFC2xx difficulty

00 - Easy

01 - Normal

02 - Hard

  • Control: Method A, Method B, Method C

7EFFC6xx control type

00 - Method A

01 - Method B

02 - Method C

The memory addresses for Difficulty and Control are never checked anywhere outside the options menu.

  • Music Test
  • Sound Test

These were fully programmed, and available in the options menu for the Genesis version, but were deleted for no apparent reason. However, the debug menu has a music and sound effect test of its own.

Unused Inventory Items

They're here, too.

Exactly the same as the Genesis version. The "Portal Potion" (grey potion) and "Black Egg" can't be obtained normally.

SRAM Error

Yeah, this is a lie.

The game uses a password system and has no SRAM, but this error message can be displayed by forcing a branch.
