Dammit, France.

Cheat Mode

A cheat mode can be unlocked after installing the game by editing the launch shortcut and adding wizardmaster as a launch parameter, at the end, after ...launch.exe.

(Note that this does not work in the Good Old Games release. You have to edit the shortcut so it points to aitd4.exe instead, but this will not let you modify the game's resolution, so you'll be stuck in 640x480 and the videos may not work.)

Once the game begins, after you choose a character, you can access the Cheat Mode by going into your inventory (the default key is I) and choosing it from the available options. A submenu will open and you'll be able to use these.

Goto Level

Welcome to Warp Zone!

Lets you warp to any room in the game. The blank entries crash the game, and even the act of warping might crash the game with a DirectDraw error.

Some rooms (Only accessible with Aline) are accessible with Carnby like Cave Mists. (" 805 Cave Mists " in the Level Select Menu)

To do:
Check if this list contains any rooms that are not normally accessible by the game.

All Item

Gives you all the weapons, objects, and documents in the game. All items are represented by a yellow question mark until you examine them, after which they show up with their normal icons.

God Mode

Debug Info
