Hmmm...
To do:
Find what Scroll_On does.

Debug_On

Enables an extra entry on the main menu: "Debug Mode". This acts as a level select to all areas of the game. Also adds "All Jigsaws", "All Biscuits", "All Teddies" and "Level End" options in the pause menu.

Demo_On

When the game is started, makes it go straight to the first level.

Language_On

Enables a language indicator in the top-right corner and the ability to press L and R to cycle between languages.

Version_On

Adds "V1.7" to the bottom-right corner of the top screen.

Music_On

Enables/disables music.


PlayStation 2, Wii, Windows

A similar settings file named Game.ini can be found in the PS2, Wii and Windows release. Setting a value to 1 enables an option, while 0 disables the option.

ShowVersion=0
Audio=1
QuickBoot=0
EnableDebugMenu=0
DebugMenuItem=0

ShowVersion

Displays "Version 3.5 SLES-54666" for the PS2, "Version 3.9" for the Wii and "Version 5.2" for Windows on the top left corner of the screen. The version is actually right above the options in Game.ini and can be changed to other values, but will round up to the first decimal place. Setting a non-number value defaults it to "1.0".

Audio

Enables/disables audio.

QuickBoot

Skips the opening credits and logos.

EnableDebugMenu

Mr-Bean-Wii-Debug-Select.png

Enables a debug menu that can be selected from the main menu. This also enables a free camera and a real-time language changing option.

The free camera can be activated by pressing R2 on PS2 and F1 on Windows.

The language can be cycled through at any time during the game with SELECT on PS2, Minus (–) on Wii and L on Windows.

Mr-Bean-Wii-Debug-Menu.png

The debug level select menu displays the theme and name of each level, as well as the internal file name and what sprite file is used. Enemies and Extras always say "None" even if a level features both.

Mr-Bean-Wii-Debug-Hud.png

A basic debug display also appears while the main debug option is enabled. It details the player's x/y/z position, and the level number in accordance with the level select menu.

DebugMenuItem

Mr-Bean-Wii-Debug-Pause-Menu.png
Mr-Bean-Wii-Debug-Items.png

Enables a menu in the pause menu that can give all of a specific item for a level. There's also an option to jump to the end of the current level. This option is automatically enabled with EnableDebugMenu on PS2.

Other Options

The Windows version has additional debug options available if the game is running in windowed mode under the View tab.

Render Modes

MrBeanWIN-FIN RenderMode-Line.png

There are four different render modes: the regular one, a solid color one where everything is white except the outlines, a lined wireframe and a dotted frame mode.

Texture Viewer

MrBeanWIN-FIN TextureViewer.png

Shows all the currently loaded textures in memory. You can zoom in and out on the currently highlighted texture with [ and ].

This menu is also present in the PS2 version and can be enabled with this code. Zooming on PS2 is done by pressing R2 and L2.

Metrics Viewer

MrBeanPS2-FIN MetricsViewe.png

CPU / GPU Usage

MrBeanPS2-FIN CPUGPUDisplay.png
MrBeanPS2-FIN Intro.wmv.png
MrBeanPS2-FIN SoftwareError.png

A broken option that's only present in the PS2 version. Enabling this option displays the frame rate, CPU and GPU usage, as well as enables the coordinates, version display and language selector regardless of the GAME.INI settings. Having this option enabled also has some other unusual side effects such as the game being guaranteed to almost always crash and give a Software Error screen if it's enabled on loading screens, as well as displaying a placeholder Intro.wmv cutscene.

To minimize problems, the display can be toggled by pressing R3 + UP and R3 + DOWN.
