Leisure Suit Larry Goes Looking for Love (in Several Wrong Places), aka Leisure Suit Larry 2, was lighter on the raunchy content than its predecessor. Larry's sprite in this one didn't seem to fit very well with the generally cartoonish flavor of the character.

In-game Debug Actions

At any point during the game, open up the text prompt and enter praise lord and go to a different room. v1.002.000 added another method by allowing the player to enter 555-0724 at the phone book screen.

Yet another way to activate it is to simply change global variable 100 to 1, which also enables the level select and bypasses the copy protection. The following actions can be entered.

Input Action
TP Teleport to a room.
GET (insert object name here) Does exactly what it says.
PITCH (insert object name here) Drop the object.
MAKE NOTE Create a log file for the game.
SHOW TIMER Show timer.
SHOW EGO Show information about the player character.
HELP How to use the debug mode.

The player could also type in SHOW GRID to show a grid over the walkable areas. However, that has been removed from the game and trying to use it crashes the game.

These controls also become available in the game:

Keys Action
Alt + F Fragmenting stats.
Alt + R Get the current room number.
Alt + D Internal debug.
Alt + I Allow typing during cutscenes.
Alt + M Show memory stats.
Alt + Z Quit.
Alt + V,
Alt + P,
Alt + C
Show layers of a room (Visual, Priority and Control respectively).
