Hmmm...
To do:
There are many, many more undocumented out-of-bounds items.

SpongeBob's Truth or Square is very loosely based on the 10th Anniversary TV special of the same name.

Given the developer, it could be considered a successor to SpongeBob SquarePants: Battle for Bikini Bottom and The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie.

Debugging Features

Debug Mode

Hmmm...
To do:
Experiment more! There might be more to do with the debug mode.

It's possible to trigger a debug mode by editing "SB09.ini". You will have to change three values in the game in order to see results.

You have to change EnableDebugControls, EnableFriendlyFly, and AllowMasterCheats values to 1 rather than 0 in a text editor. Then, you will need to scroll down quite a bit until you see "DebugMode". It will not have a value assigned to it. Press space and add a 1 (again, in a text editor.)

Debug Controls

The only known debug command is to noclip. The game will rather rudely call you a cheater, and you can fly around any map.

The text that says "Player #0 is a cheater. Flying"

Make sure to use a Classic Controller.

  • Toggle No-Clip: Minus
  • Fly Up: X
  • Fly Down: Y
  • Speed Up: Left Analog Trigger

Level Select

2B1456B278B3

Present outside SpongeBob's house are letters and numbers floating in the middle of empty space. Touching these grants access to most levels in the game through the scrapbook.

If you find a way to get inside Mermaid Man when upstairs in SpongeBob's house, the camera angle changes, and you can see the letters.

Unused Levels

Hmmm...
To do:
Get pictures of the levels from the footage on YouTube.

Exclusively in the Spanish version of the game are two cut levels found in the the PSP version, and are mostly as intact and playable as they were there. Given their inclusion in the PSP version and appearance in some trailers, they must have been cut late into development.

SL03.HO

"Bikini Bottom", loosely based on the Season 1 episode Culture Shock.

SL09.HO

"Krusty Krab", based on both the pilot Help Wanted and the Season 2 episode Welcome to the Chum Bucket. This level was briefly shown in the game's launch trailer.

Unused Models

Pearl

SBTOS Pearl.png

A model of Pearl found in the cut "Bikini Bottom" level. She is not animated in-game.

Checkpoint

SBTOS Checkpoint.png

A cut checkpoint model. The final game does not utilize specific checkpoints. The DS version uses a very similar model of this.

SpongeBot

SBTOS SpongeBot.png

A model of the SpongeBot from the cut "Krusty Krab" level.

Springboard Bot

SBTOS Springboard.png

A robot enemy found in the cut "Bikini Bottom" level.

1×1×1 Cube

Sbtos 1x1x1cube.png

A 1×1×1 cube.

SpongeBob's Truth or Square - 1x1x1 Cube in-game.png

Strangely, this can be seen in "Fun Times Jellyfishing with Patrick", likely due to an oversight.

Error

Sbtos-Error.PNG

Close to the ending of "Becoming a Fry Cook!!!" is an error model. It's unknown what model the error was trying to use.

Unused Textures

Coin

Sbtos earlycoin.png

An early coin texture.

Tospinkladder.png

Oddly enough, this was mapped to a ladder in the Mermalair, likely by mistake.

Wall-E

Sbtos walle.png

A leftover from Wall-E, Heavy Iron's previous game.

Unused Sounds

Filename Audio Notes
revbtest.wav.genh
A test sound.
bark_01.wav.genh
A dog barking.
temp.wav.genh
A splatting sound.
SPWN_place_holder.wav.genh
A placeholder spawning sound.

Unused Videos

V109.bik

A cutscene that was probably meant to play when you use the scrapbook for the first time. Notably, SpongeBob calls Sand Mountain "Bubble Mountain" in this cutscene, despite that name not being used anywhere else in the game. It is unknown why this cutscene was removed.

V20.bik

A trailer for various SpongeBob DVDs.

Unused .ini Files

There are a bunch of .ini files that are no longer used by the game, as they were "absorbed into the GoodEditor".

Console Differences

While the 360 and Wii versions are near-identical to each other, there are a few differences between the two.

  • The Xbox 360 version renders at 1280×720, whereas the Wii version renders at 640×480.
  • The framerate is 60fps on Xbox 360, while it's stuck at 30fps on the Wii.
  • Various sound effects have been downsampled on the Wii. This is most noticeable with the collection sound made by the Happiness Nuggets.
  • The Xbox 360 has the FMVs rendered in widescreen, while the Wii has them rendered in fullscreen. This results in the FMVs being stretched when the Wii's display mode is set to widescreen:
