Patch:F10 M Cheat

From KeenWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The F10 + M or memory cheat in Keen Galaxy displays information about the current level's memory usage. This is useful for modders as it shows how much memory is free for use by more tiles, sprites or music. This is the original purpose of the cheat and it is of little value to players.

Notice that the text is set out so that the varying values can be inserted into it. This leads to some unusual arrangements.
