Unused Models/Graphics

The nanokey ring from the PC version was originally planned to be an item, but was later streamlined into being automatic when using locked doors that you have the key for. The world model still exists in the files, along with its icon and the icon for nanokeys.

The keyring was originally meant to occupy the top utility slot, before being redesigned.

Unused NPC/Conversation

In Hong Kong, between the level transition from the market to the compound a T-posing Red Arrow member can be found in a corner. Using "SetState Standing" command he can be talked to to have a conversation about Paul Denton and his supposed wife, Maggie Chow. This conversation was also included in the PC version and unused there in the same manner.

T-posing and out of bounds. Set to the standing state to converse.

Developer Tools

Log File

The commands OPENMCLOG / CLOSEMCLOG will save the equivalent of the PC version's log to the memory card.

Hidden Flag Viewer


Select can be pressed to bring up the goals screen, if PlayerPawn.bCheatsEnabled is true Select can then be pressed again to view the currently set flags.

Map Loader


A menu that at one point would've had a list of maps to load. Despite showing Triangle as the back button the correct button is Circle. Pressing X while the list is empty tries to load an invalid map, crashing the game. This menu can be loaded by setting PlayerPawn.bCheatsEnabled to true and using the command "LoadMapWindow".

Add Augmentation Cheat


Intended to be called from the cheat menu, but has no option. This option was never finished and just shows the text "(NOT YET IMPLEMENTED--BUGGER!)". This menu can be seen by editing the memory of any of the other cheat options to "ADDAUGS".

Developer Console


With PlayerPawn.bCheatsEnabled, on the main menu pressing F12 on a keyboard will close the main menu and display the console on the lower left of the screen, allowing console commands to be input.
