Quest 4 Cheats and Debugs
pod debug patch (8 KB)
This patch allows you to instantly travel to any of the SQ4's time
era's. This comes in handy when you've got an old saved game, but
forgot to write down the proper timecodes. The zip file contains
two files, namely script.531 (for the disk version) and 531.hep
(for the CD version). They are to be applied the same way as the
timer fixes: copying them into the right SQ4 directory, updating
patchDir/patchPath settings in RESOURCE.CFG or WIN\SIERRA.INI if
necessary. To enter the debug code, just go inside a time pod and
click on Roger's left shoulder. This should bring up a text box
with all the SQ4 time era's. Go pick one! Please note that this
patch is for advanced users only.
a rare beta version of Space Quest 4 out there, which contains Sierra's
debugging codes. This beta leaked from Sierra about six months before
the game was officially released. It was distributed by a cracker
group known as "The Humble Guys" (or "THG" for
short). Besides the debug codes, the game appears to be very buggy
and crash-prone. The debugs of this cracked version are listed below.
- Alt A gives
current status of Ego
- Alt B displays "Script .943 not found" and exits to
- Alt C display changes to the priority bands. These are the rough
areas which control the priority of objects to each other. Hit Alt
C again to return to game screen.
- Alt D Debug on/off toggle. This has many commands of it's own,
most of which are probably the same as the Alt commands.
- Alt E Gives info on available objects. The objects displayed vary
according to where you are.
- Alt F Gives available memory parameters
- Alt G Allows you to change variable values, if you know the variable
- Alt I Displays all the possible inventory items and lets you get
anything you want. Just click on anything, or everything, you want!
Getting things this way can cause the game to behave in strange
- Alt M Adds 20 buckazoids to your bankroll.
- Alt N This is used to save bug reports (for the code jockeys to
- Alt P Another screen mode, similar to the Alt C screen. To exit
this screen, hit Alt C twice.
- Alt R Gives the room number and additional info for the current
room. Use these in conjunction with Alt T.
- Alt T Can teleport you to any room. If the room number you enter
does not exist, you get dumped back to DOS. Here are just a few
valid room numbers:
25 to 115,
in increments of 5, are the rooms you begin Space Quest in. Room
72 is the manhole.
