DebugIcon.png This game has debugging material.

This article is a work in progress.
...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.
To do:
There should be USB mouse controls in this game somehow, assuming the mouse driver is active.

Debug Menus

Several very elaborate debug menus can be enabled in this game. These menus contain map viewers, model viewers, animation viewers, lighting editors, and many more. You can even view an unused Digimon character. Apply the code below and you will be taken to a debug menu of your choice after the Sony Computer Entertainment Inc. Presents screen.
