Check if any of this applies to the Mac version too and get better documentation.

Debug Menu

On the Windows version of the game, use the -W command line argument as documented below. Then, simply right clicking inside the game window will bring up a menu with many options, including a debug menu. Most of the features here seem to have been removed, including a show console function. After right clicking, and selecting "Camera User", then "Viewport 1", you can now use a freely move the player around the level.

Unused Console

Not much is known about this console, other than it has a menu option in that debug menu that's called "Show Console". However, there are two unused dialog boxes found in the game's files associated with this unused feature.

Command Line Arguments

There are two ways one can activate these in Windows:

  1. By going into the command prompt to where the game's executable is stored and typing in the executable name, followed by the arguments.
  2. By right clicking the game's shortcut and clicking properties, you can add various argument after the game's location in the target text box. The letters are case sensitive.
  • -mce, Loads Windows Media Center if found on the user's PC.
  • -W, Leads game in debugged window mode
  • -L, unknown

Unused Text String

There is an unused text string reading "Fullscreen" which resides under GameSetup. This was probably going to be used in the final version, but was cut for unknown reasons. The developers have privately mentioned a windowed mode option, so this may have been cut at the last minute, with the -W command as the main alternative option.
