This build comes with a bunch of debug options that can be enabled by uncommenting EnableControllerDebugKeys in MAIN.INI and using the 2nd player controller.

Pressing R1 cycles between normal, wireframe and whatever the colorful one is supposed to be.

Pressing R2 toggles a free-moving camera, which can be moved with the directional pad.
