The buggy yet decent action RPG entry in the Blue Dragon series.

Debug Map


Note: The area name in the screenshot is not that of the debug room, but rather that of the zone it got swapped with.

There is a debug map under the name zzz. It can be accessed via file swapping. It consists of a large checkered square with four NPCs in the middle.

From left to right, the NPCs are:

  • Quest Debugging. This NPC marks quests as cleared or not. The sub-menus each match a different quest. S35 closes the menu. Some quests that can't be normally cleared can be marked as such that way.
  • Event Viewer. It does just that. Note that this is the only way to escape the Debug Room. The sub-menus each match a different quest. S35 closes the menu.
  • Text Checker. This seems to be for testing events, but it crashes the game, which in turn triggers an unused crash handler screen—the same "The Game could not read data" screen used for corrupt save data. The sub-menus each match a different quest, with S35 closing the menu.
  • Flag Debugger. There are four options: Number Specification, All flags cleared, All gimmick skills ON, and All raids on.
