Debug Mode

This mode enables a screen capture debug mode, scene select menu, debug information, and sound test options. The scene select menu does not work in this game because it's reading invalid script files.

Controller #1 debug inputs:

  • Triangle + Circle + X + Square + Start will return you to the title screen.
  • Select + Triangle will enable or disable progressive mode.

Controller #2 debug inputs:

  • Circle to toggle debug modes. Press this once or twice to enable sound test options in the Settings menu in the main menu. This will also open a scene select menu in the pause menu in-game.
  • Start toggles a debug flag on or off. This will unlock all extras when enabled.
  • Select for screen capture menu. This will save an image in raw bitmap (.bmp) format to your memory card.
  • Triangle to log printf information.
  • Square to toggle Debug flag on or off. It's not clear what this does.
  • X to log printf information.
  • R1 to log printf information.

If the text present at memory address 0x002C84A0 spells the ASCII text DEBUG, debug mode would also be enabled if the game was booted via host0. The file path presumably would have to be host0:/home/ps2/the_black/image/disk/.
