Star Wars: Starfighter is a game where you fight Hollywood celebrities with fighting stars from the Star Wars universe.

To do:
  • The game tries to load COMMLINE.TXT at startup as evidenced in the debug console line "open name cdrom0:\COMMLINE.TXT;1 flag 1 data 434d8". What happens if it finds it?
  • There are many, MANY repeated calls of "usbkeybd0: led_transfer_done -> 0x4" that spams the debug console. Do debugging features activate if a USB keyboard is plugged in?


Europa Platform Text
A lot of leftover text from when the game was known as "Project Europa".


The following can be found by entering the respective code at the Code Setup screen.

"Unused" Codes

HOTEL and SIZZLE show DEFAULT.PSS, a simple scrolling "DEFAULT". They seem to be placeholders for more developer messages.

Also in the cheats.con file are four codes which can't be entered as there aren't any numbers in the codewheel.

defproc Code_extra1
        CD_RunStep codeextra1

defproc Code_extra2
        CD_RunStep codeextra2

defproc Code_extra3
        CD_RunStep codeextra3

defproc Code_extra4
        CD_RunStep codeextra4

Crash Handler

With the help of an emulator and Cheat Engine, you can type numbers into the cheat menu. This allows you to enter the "Unused" Codes. All of them play the "DEFAULT" movie listed above. However, entering one of these codes a second time does the same thing, but crashes and shows a crash handler with debugging information (memory used, memory free, etc.) and tries to output a log to development hardware.
