Debug Flags

Located at SNES address $00AF2D-00AF32 is a set of three 16-bit debug flags. All are set to #$0000 to turn the debug features off.

00AF2D - Debug Menu

Use Pro Action Replay code 00AF2D01 or Game Genie code DFC4-A707 to access the debug menu on bootup. Note that there's no visible cursor, so you'll need to keep track of your D-Pad Up/Down presses when making a selection. Or, monitor memory address $7E052A in a debugger, which holds the index. Press the A button or Start to confirm the selection. Watch out, there's an invisible sixth option (index #$05) that will crash the game if selected.

7E14FF Menu

On bootup, the game stores #$0000 to memory address 7E14FF, then in the very next operation checks if it's zero:
