Patch:F10 P Cheat

From KeenWiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The F10+P or pause cheat is a cheat in Keen galaxy that, in Keen 6, crashes the game. it was intended to be used during playtesting to freeze the action until a key was pressed. This is not to be confused with the pause window; a window that appears when the pause break key is pressed as well as in other circumstances such as when saved games are loaded.


Fix cheat in Keen 6

This patch 'fixes' the cheat so that it no longer crashes the game but instead works as intended. The original cheat accidentally calls some buggy code present in all Galaxy games but never accessed.
