Crime Patrol (CD-i)
This game has hidden development-related text.
The CD-i Crime Patrol continues the proud legacy of porting every American Laser Games title to every early-90s FMV-capable console under the sun.
Naturally, the sequel also got a CD-i port.
|This needs some investigation.|
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Can this debug mode be reactivated in some way?
Two unused files can be found on the disc, both of which contain code and strings meant for a debugging mode. This mode would've been controlled using a keyboard and a CD-i dev kit.
A debug version of the used file cdi_appl. Its contents can be sorted into three chunks.
The first chunk deals with the gameplay, and includes two sets of debug commands. In addition, a huge list of every cutscene can be found after the "Dummy function called" line; this has been excluded for viewing purposes.
