Most AGI games still have the debug code that developers used while the games were being developed. Most of the games activate their debug modes by pushing the ALT-D key combination. The other games use a "magic phrase" to enter the debug mode. Once activated, here are commands that can be used.
|TP||Teleport to room.|
|SHOW PRIORITY||Displays the current rooms priority bands and control lines.|
|GET OBJECT||Get any inventory item.|
|GIMME GIMME||Get all inventory items.|
|SHOW FLAG||Displays one of the 256 flags.|
|SET FLAG||Set one of the 256 flags.|
|RESET FLAG||Clear one of the 256 flags.|
|SHOW VAR||Displays one of the 256 variables.|
|SET VAR||Change the value of one of the 256 variables.|
|POSITION||Change egos position.|
|SHOW POSITION||Show egos current screen coordinates.|
|OBJECT NUMBER||Displays list of all the objects and their object numbers.|
|OBJECT ROOM||Displays which room an object is found in.|
|ROOM||Displays room number.|
|SET PRIORITY||Set the priority of ego.|
|RELEASE PRIORITY||Release the last priority that ego was set to.|
|NOTE: Only the TP and SHOW VAR work in versions of the AGI games included with the collections.|
Of all the AGI games, it is unknown whether the KQ4 256K version, MH1, MH2 and Mixed Up Mother Goose have a debug mode or not. KQ4 will almost certainly have one, while MUMG probably doesn't even though its words.tok file has all the debug words contained in it. Manhunter 2 has some kind of debug mode which allows you to teleport and change variable values because there are text messages in the first LOGIC file along these lines. Manhunter: New York probably has the same debug mode.
To access the debug mode in King's Quest I-III (in the newer versions of the game most of the debugging options won't work) while playing press Alt+D. Two information boxes will appear. Press Enter to get rid of them. Enter the right command to enter debug mode.
|Gold Rush||type "bird man".|
|Kings Quest I||Alt+D and Enter twice|
|Kings Quest II||Alt+D and Enter twice|
|Kings Quest III||type "rats ass" or Alt+D|
|Kings Quest IV AGI||Alt+D and Enter twice|
|Leisure Suit Larry 1||Alt+D and Enter twice|
|Police Quest 1||type "stink bug".|
|Space Quest 1||type "backstage" or "dbg".|
|Space Quest 2||Alt+D and Enter twice|
Here are a few interesting tricks to help you deal with that intolerable wizard in debug mode (). Type:
|enchanter status||Were wizard is, when he'll return, etc.|
|do chore||To have your task done for you.|
|sleep enchanter||To put him to sleep.|
|bye bye enchanter||To kill him.|
While playing, press Alt+D. Two information boxes will appear. Press enter to get rid of them (in the newer versions of the games though, most of the debugging options won't work).
|tester||Displays Rogers screen coordinates.|
