A fairly large debug menu remains in the game. You can do various things with this menu, such as control the lighting, set SFX and BGM volumes, have max gold, set various event flags on or off, and more. Apply the code below to access this menu in game.

USA Code:

Enable Debug Menu
D02391C2 0000FFFB
10183048 0000E5CA
D02391C2 0000FFFD
10183048 0000C95E

With the above code on, press R3 once to enable the menu. After entering the pause screen, then exiting it, it will appear onscreen. Press L3 to disable.
