Spider-Man 2 is the second game based on the second Spider-Man movie by Sony Pictures.

GAME.INI

GAME.INI is found in the root directory, which contains:

[Strings]
SKU=SLUS-20776

[Ints]

[Flags]

SLUS-20776 represents the US version of the game.

Unlike the GameCube release of the game, this file is read at run-time. Variables may be added to the file, however with most debug functionality disabled.

Variables

These variables, when enabled, have a noticeable effect in-game:

Variable Result
LAUNDRY_LIST=0 Sets the chapter of the story that the player is in.
GOD_MODE=1 Enables god mode. The player is unaffected by enemies' punching or shooting.
SHOW_PERF_INFO=1 Shows performance stats, such as FPS, # of verts, # of polys, and # of nodes. This is displayed as a box in the top right corner of the screen.
COMBAT_DISPLAY=1 Displays two lines of text on the bottom of the screen. CURR represents the current attack or action being performed, and NEXT represents any attack or action that may be performed after the current attack or action.
NO_LOAD_SCREEN=1 Skips loading the current savegame, intro movies, and title screen. If LAUNDRY_LIST is set to anywhere above 0, it will skip the new game intro.
COMBO_TESTER=1 Allows the player to test combat combos while in the air.

Debug Information

While most of the debug features have been stripped, performance and combat information may still be viewed by setting the SHOW_PERF_INFO and COMBAT_DISPLAY flags to 1.

The game with SHOW_PERF_INFO and COMBAT_DISPLAY set to 1.

Debug Text

For nearly every chapter, there are pieces of debug text that provide exposition. These strings are found in AMALGA.PAK.

Chapter 4

==DEBUG TEXT== UPON GAZING AT THE BEAUTIFUL SKYLINE, SPIDEY NOTICES A PLUME OF SMOKE COMING
FROM A NEARBY BUILDING.

==DEBUG TEXT== UMMM... THERE'S A DUDE IN A RHINO SUIT. KILL HIM.

Chapter 7

In Chapter 7, Pride and Prejudice, there are debug subtitles that slightly differ from the retail game's actual voice lines. For instance, in the mission's introduction cutscene, Mr. Jameson refers to Madison Square Garden instead of just sports arena.

Debug text shows some events for both challenges.

==DEBUG TEXT== BZZT! WRONG PIT, NO SCORE!
==DEBUG TEXT== OOOH ONE FOR QB!!! TOTALS: SPIDEY [score] ... QB [score]
==DEBUG TEXT== SCORE ONE FOR SPIDEY!!! TOTALS: SPIDEY [score]
==DEBUG TEXT== OUCH! YOU'VE BEEN HIT [#] TIMES.

There is also an additional challenge that has been cut from the final game.

(DISAPPOINTED) WELL... I KNEW THAT WAS TOO EASY A CHALLENGE FOR SOMEONE WHO HAS OBVIOUSLY GONE TO SUCH LENGTHS TO CREATE HIS RUSE. 
LET'S TRY SOMETHING THAT WILL ENTERTAIN OUR AUDIENCE A BIT MORE... 
YOU'RE REPORTED TO HAVE ASTOUNDING STRENGTH AND BALANCE.  
HERE'S YOUR CHANCE TO PROVE IT...IF YOU CAN.  
THIS CHALLENGE IS SIMPLE.  
LIFT THREE WEIGHTS, CARRY THEM ACROSS THE PLATFORM, AND THEN DROP THEM OFF AT THE FINISH LINE.
