Passwords

Debug Mode Password

Much like Sakura Taisen: Atsuki Chishio Ni, a complex set of conditions need to be met in order to enable a debug mode, which also allows you to activate a debug menu at any time as well. Not only do you need to type in the following passwords, you also need to press a certain button combination each time over the confirm password button. These will also give you an incorrect message. Don't worry about that. The game is just trying to fool you.

At the password screen, type the following passwords and then when finished typing them in, press the following button combinations over the confirm button:

  • 1. Type "10349762" as a password, then hold R3 & Select and press Circle over the confirm button.
  • 2. Type "02682091" as a password, then hold L1 & R2 and press Circle over the confirm button.
  • 3. Type "81394116" as a password, then hold Start & L3 and press Circle over the confirm button.

If you failed to properly input the passwords or button combinations, you will need to start over. To confirm if debug mode is active, press either Select & Start to enable debug information, or press L2 & D-Pad Left to enable the debug menu. These are the only sets of passwords in the game that are not required for you to beat the game.

Regular Passwords

For these passwords to have any effect, you must have completed the game once as Gemini and then enter the master password first: "14085372". If you would like to take the lazy route, you can also activate the below code to enable the master password without beating the game.

SLPM-65531 code:

Enable Master Password Always (optional)
00C1C730 00000001
Password Effect
14085372 Master password. This is needed for the below passwords.
66162055 Unlocks the weapon "Onisatsu".
19220101 Unlocks the weapon "Koushi no Ken".
61636362 Unlocks the weapon "Youtou Kuniku".

To unlock all players and weapons that can be obtained through passwords at once, enter the following passwords in succession:

  • 1. Enter 12423224 as a password.
  • 2. Enter 18410115 as a password.
  • 3. Enter 53911024 as a password.

Unused Passwords

Below are several passwords that do not have any inputs assigned to them. To enable them again, apply the below code then type the passwords listed below. It is not clear if they have any effect on anything.

SLPM-65531 code:

Re-enable Unused Passwords

Debug Mode

Sakura Taisen V Episode 0 - Debugmode.png

Applying the debug mode password will enable the use of most of the below sections without the use of a cheating device. Button combinations to enable debug information and a debug menu are below.

  • Hold Select and press Start to enable debug information.
  • Hold L2 and press D-Pad Left to enable the debug menu.

Additionally, you may want to enable the below code to enable more debug material that cannot be normally accessed.

SLPM-65531 codes:

Master Code (Only needed for cheat devices)
9029F350 0C0A7C7C

Re-enable Extra Debug Features
10112994 0000000F
D02EDA02 0000FFFD
202ECE0C 00000001
D02EDA02 0000FE7F
002EC177 00000000
D02EDA02 0000FAFF
002EC177 00000001
E002FEEF 002EDA02
202EBF9C 0000000C
202C1EDC 002C1D88
E002FEBF 002EDA02
202EBF9C 0000000C
202C1EDC 002C1DF0

This allows the following button combinations to enable extra features:

  • Pressing L2 + D-Pad Up will enable an unused map category in the level select portion of the debug menu (DBST0).
  • Pressing L2 + D-Pad Down will enable another unused map category in the level select portion of the debug menu (DBST1). This replaces the above map category (after using this once, you will need to press L3 to reset the menu's index. It will crash if you do not do this).
  • Pressing L3 will reset the level select menu's index to 1. This is needed if you send yourself to a map from the above category. Entering the menu again without doing this will crash the game.
  • Pressing L1 + L2 + D-Pad Left will enable another debug menu.
  • Enables a crash handler if the game crashes.
  • Enables debug logging to a debug unit, or an emulator's console window.

Considering this is the first menu ID in the game, it was likely used before all other menus were set in place.

Like the above menu, this was likely a bare-bones version of the character select screen. You can only select Gemini here.
