Debug Menu

This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.

Terminator Genesis Debug Menu.png

Game Genie code VMLA-98DJ will load a debug menu, similar to those found in other Virgin games, in place of the options menu.

The available options are:

  • Press A - Infinite Lives is now: Exactly what it says on the tin.
  • Press B - Start Game on Level: Ditto.
  • Press C - Photograph Freeze: Press Start at any time to freeze the action on-screen.

Text for the menu is stored at address 28C5:
