Development

There are several debug console commands that help you to debug the game faster.

  • toggle_freecamera: Will allow you to move the camera freely around in the map. By default the keys s, y, x, c are used to move the camera. (Use the key v to place the hero at the center of the camera)
  • hero_pos: Set the hero position. You can also use (by default) the key v that is bound to spawning the actor at the current center of the camera.
  • give_allitems
  • give_key [<amount>]
  • give_gas [<amount>]
  • give_kashes [<amount>]
  • change_scene <scene_id>
  • toggle_debug: Allows you to activate an in-game debug menu with the right mouse button
  • toggle_godmode

There are a few more commands - just use the help command to get a complete list of the commands
