Beneath a Steel Sky deutsche flagge


Cheats + Codes + Trivia




There are some small bits and pieces about Beneath a Steel Sky that don't fit to the topics of the rest of the pages. So these things pile up here now.








LINC Codes



The original floppy disk version of Beneath a Steel Sky included a copy protection using Codes, which were subsequently removed in the CD-ROM versions. As a result of Beneath a Steel Sky being freeware, these codes have become public domain. When playing BASS in ScummVM, however, these codes are never needed as ScummVM has permission to bypass the copy protection even in the disk version.
But if you still play the old Version of the game, maybe you have some original discs still floating around and play on old hardware or under DosBox or on the Amiga and perhaps you lost your Codes this might be usefull for you.
So here we go, the LINC Codes are as follows:

* Amritah Cola Company: 704723
* Anchor Insurance: 520228
* Beaudin Beauty Salon: 293852
* Blayde´s Emporium: 293944
* Celestial Sandwich Sushi bar: 257303
* Cole Brothers Gathering: 113668
* Dreamtyme Imports: 127813
* Frank´s Fisheries: 492132
* Hammond´s Drug Store: 113322
* Hvengelmir Heating Company: 180400
* Keading Memorial Pipe Company: 520394
* Martell´s Wine & Winkle Bar: 127174
* Mudd´s meat by-products: 305662
* Nonesuch data system: 386253
* Peejays Bakery: 284764
* Richy´s Metal Heaven: 386651
* Security Services Social Club: 815931
* Sqwak Security Systems: 284291
* The Piermont foundation: 704417
* Ultars Eatery: 257925




LEVEL WARPING


Warning! This feature might crash Beneath a Steel Sky; the safest way to perform this cheat is if you just started the game and enter the debugger before you do any other action.

To enter the debugger, press CTRL-D. A text window will open. Type "section 0" and press enter. Type "exit" (and press enter) or hit ESC to exit the debugger.

Now the screen should fade out and fade in in another location in the game.

The following commands are available:

section 0 - on the fire escape, other side of the police hq
section 1 - after Foster escapes the furnace room
section 2 - Belle Vue
section 3 - ground level
section 4 - in the collapsing tunnel
section 5 - LINC
section 6 - final scene, Rob entering the council room

NOTE: these codes weren't accessible in the original Beneath a Steel Sky game, they were merely meant as helpers for the programmers of BASS.
If the game should crash after using the debugger, please DO NOT bother the ScummVM team. The information presented here is rather inofficial.

...thanx to Clem for this nice info. More from him on his website mentioned on the links page!



SHOW THE GRID


To enter the debugger, press CTRL-D. A text window will open. Type "showgrid" and press enter. Type "exit" (and press enter) or hit ESC to exit the debugger.

Now you should see a grid of white boxes on every screen, roughly denoting where you can walk.

The interesting thing is that the programmers also added some secret messages (such as "HELLO!" or "TONY")

(To turn the grid off again, just enter "showgrid" once more in the debugger window)
