Ultima VIII: Pagan (DOS)
|Ultima VIII: Pagan|
This game has debugging material.
|This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.|
Are you a bad enough dude to
I can't believe it's not Ultima!
- 1 Ending Test
- 2 Debug Mode
- 2.1 F8 Menu
- 2.2 Button Commands
- 2.3 Avatar Menu
Create a file in the STATIC directory called I81B4U83.ICU with anything in it. Now there will be two new options in the Avatar's diary - one for viewing the ending sequence, and one for seeing the Developer Quotes.
The filename spells out "I ate one before you ate three. I see you." That's... probably an inside joke.
Ultima VIII continues the series' tradition of having monstrously comprehensive cheat modes.
Crack open GAMEDAT/AVATAR.DAT in a hex editor, then change both 2A and 2B to 01.
Document this fully.
Press F8 at any time to bring up this buggy, buggy menu.
Press these buttons at any time during play to toggle them. Or you can activate them in the Toggles corner of the F8 Menu.
Hackmover (H Key)
Pick up anything. You can even stuff bits of the environment in your inventory! Can't carry around NPCs, though. But you can kill them by repeatedly picking them up and dropping them from a height.
Power Avatar (P Key)
God Mode by any other name.
Footpads (F Key)
Displays a grid over the gameworld, presumably related to collision.
Egg Bounds (E Key)
Displays egg boundaries. Duh.
Once debug mode is enabled, opening this menu is pretty easy: Just left-click the Avatar. A voice will shout "Cheater!" and laugh at you, and the menu will open.
Skip to any "cutscene" sequence in the game.
Lets you cast any spell in the game.
Brings up a crosshair. Upon clicking an NPC you'll be given information on their location and current animation.
Brings up a crosshair and asks for a Spell Caster that must be a sorcerer and not the Avatar.
The Avatar tells you the time.
The Avatar says "You now have the key."
The Avatar says "You have returned the staff."
Brings up a crosshair. Upon clicking an NPC, you'll be given various options to decide what you did. Once they pass, the NPC you clicked will call for a guard, and Beren will show up and judge the shit out of you.
Does exactly what you think.
Brings up a crosshair. Upon clicking an NPC, they will be dealt untold amounts of damage, usually killing them unless they're immortal for plot purposes.
Lets you spawn Blackrock Fragments or Energised Fragments.
Brings up a list of cryptically named options. Some spawn items, while others just make the Avatar say "Bzzzzt! Thank you for playing."
