Main Debug Menu

Two debug menus that contain a variety of options can be enabled in this game. These debug menus are mostly the same as the ones in Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines.

When you first boot the game with the above code on, you will be presented with the first debug menu. Once in this menu, at anytime inside a sub menu, press Select + Start to return to the main debug screen.

  • PPD Main starts the game normally.
  • PPD Quick Start sends you into a level select sub menu.
  • Parameters allows you to set various other settings here, such as the character to play as.
  • PPD NIS Test allows you to watch all of the cutscenes. While watching a cutscene, press R2 to enter a frame by frame debug option. Press D-Pad Right while in this mode to advance a frame.
  • PPD Model View crashes the game.
  • PPD Item View crashes the game.
  • PPD Inventory Item View crashes the game.
  • Inventory Icon View displays a black screen.
  • ASYNC Test allows you to enter a free camera mode.
  • PPD Morph Test appears to make the game run really slow. It's unclear what this mode does.
  • DVD Menu Test softlocks the game.
  • PPD Skin tries to load something but never does.
  • PPD Particles enables some debug bars onscreen even when exiting this option.

PPD Quick Start

X-Files-debug2.png X-Files-debug3.png

The level select option. This will send you into any level here.

Parameters

X-Files-debug4.png

This option allows you to set the character you wish to play as and various other options. It's unclear if the Light Editor Enabled option works.

PPD Particles

X-Files-debug5.png

Probably a place to test VRAM usage. Leaving this option will show debug bars onscreen during gameplay.

In Game Debug Menu

With the code on from the first section, pause the game then press R3 while in the pause menu. This will bring up the debug menu. Exit the pause screen afterwords by pressing Start again. To exit the debug menu press L3. To bring it up at anytime again press R2 + R3.

There is a lot of neat things you can do here. Such as activate cheats, toggle display debug info, edit cameras and lighting, play sounds from the game, etc. On the second page of this debug menu you can enable miscellaneous debug displays:
