So very stubbly.

Are you a bad enough dude to rescue this article?

Debug Modes

Similar to Curse of the Azure Bonds, there are a few parameters that can be used with game.exe.

Entering 1 as the first command line parameter skips the title screen and the copy protection.

The second command line parameter can just be entered as 2.

The player can also enter the following strings for the third parameter:

Parameter Effect
Gem Allows view of the area map in all locations.
HALIBUT Allows editing/modifying of experienced players.
Helm Alt + X key combination kills all the enemies,
complete with a message saying "The Gods intervene!"

Thus, the player would enter on the command prompt game.exe 1 2 Helm, for example.
