Debug Menu

Acactussayswhat?
Please elaborate.
Having more detail is always a good thing.
Specifically: What flag, exactly? Where is this flag located in memory? More info is a good thing.

Right now, the only way to active this debug menu is via changing a flag inside the memory.

FPS counter Object counter Heap size Object size
Silver 1999 active debug fps.png Silver 1999 active debug 1.png Silver 1999 active debug 2.png Silver 1999 active debug 4.png

The following snippet shows the function which checks the flags and calls the appropiate debug render function. In my case the byte flat is located at 0xD00E2501 and can either be 1,2 or 4. The fps counter flag is located at 0x01250ECC and can either be a 1 or 0.

Unused text in memory

Hmmm...
To do:
Describe the importance of the text.

0x4BCDFC in the game's executable contains a bunch of weird text strings:

Baked potatoes can be very hot
Don't put babies near hot fat
Organic tomatoes make you grow breasts
David could be gay
Pascal bracket style can result in ridicule
Cigarettes can damage your health
Artists
Silver can only help you lose weight as part of a calorie controlled diet
Your house is at risk if you do not keep up repayments
Empty vessels make the most noise
The Truth is out there
The End is Nigh
Don't put your daughter on the stage Mrs Worthington
Microwave ovens can damage your mobile phones
