Miscellaneous tidbits that are interesting enough to point out here.

Debug Menus

Apply the below code to re-enable debug menus. Note that the script debug menu and the main debug menu only half work in the USA version. The script debug menu doesn't work in the JP version and the main debug menu is not found in the JP version either. The script loader only works in the JP version as the "think" script files were removed from the USA version. Refer to the game's note page for valid battle debug menu scripts for the "think" files and the script debug menu.

With the Re-enable Debug Menus code active, press one of the following buttons to enable a debug menu when you have control of a character:

  • Select for Battle Debug Menu.
  • L3 for Script Debug.
  • L2 + R2 for Main Debug Menu (USA only).
  • R3 to disable debug menus (only works in some menus).

Debug Information

This reports various system statistics. It also will render debug menu text.

Main Debug Menu

Strangely enough, this is only present in the USA version of the game. Unfortunately not many options work here since this menu requires a network mode pointing to several files on a computer. Viewing the font file, system memory locations, and pad information work. No other options do.

Battle Debug Menu

This allows you to set battle parameters, choose monster sets to fight, the area to fight in, and set character statues. Setting muteki (invincibility) on doesn't work. The menu only works in the Japanese version.

Script Debug Menu

This allows you to load map files, although this doesn't work correctly any more and will crash the game after one use. Only works in the USA version.
