To do:
Document the Settings debug sub menu.

Guitar Hero: World Tour now lets you play as the whole band, leaving even more plastic instruments to clutter the living room. Also, this game includes a simple editor to make your own songs, not to mention that it now uses the original song masters from the artists themselves instead of covers done by WaveGroup.

Due to platform limitations, the PS2 conversion uses polygonal models of characters laid on top of pre-rendered backgrounds taken from the main console releases.

Applying the below RAW codes on the USA release of the game (SLUS-21781, 54C3926E CRC) will enable a debug mode and open a debug menu in the main menu and in the pause screen.
