Cheating in Half-Life DC

Post by mankrip » Mon Aug 06, 2007 6:17 pm

This game has several great parts, but I can't stand the boring parts anymore. For me, the boring parts are the "walk as slow as possible or they'll see you and you're dead" ones. I guess I'm playing it in hard mode, but I've started playing it some years ago, so I don't remember.

My question is: is there any penalty if I use cheats in this game, more specifically the "Dreamcast gives firepower" (infinite ammo) cheat? By penalty I mean stuff like not seeing the "true" or full ending of the game.

I'm not sure about cheats but I'm sure there's a save for Half Life with all secrets open on the VMU backup CD by bucanero, there's a download available over at DCEvo:

Half-Life had a lot of cheats, when I downloaded it came with a notepad file that had all of them.

It has been quite a while since Ive played but there was always one cheat I could never get to work. I always used cheats every time I played though, without them the game just isnt fun to me; probably cause I am just plain bad.

Dreamcast @ Wikipedia
Though Dreamcast was officially discontinued in early 2001, commercial games were still developed and released afterwards, particularly in Japan. Unreleased games like Propeller Arena and Half-Life continued to become available to the public through warez groups and independent hackers.
This is a well known fact, and if somebody is asking for Halflife cheat codes for dc it's obvious He/She has downloaded it.

It's not like I said I downloaded half-life via www.fuck-you.com

I would imagine this thread would classify as warez bragging though?

Thanks Bilal, but I already knew the cheat codes.

This topic isn't about having the game or not, it's about being penalized or not for using cheats in the game. But nobody seems to have understood this point anyway...

That was mainly aimed at Bilal, not yourself though.

I had spent quite a bit of my earlier Dreamcasting with the formerly stated unmentionable, and the differences between the PC and DC versions are negligible at best. If you know the console, you can do and see a lot of cool goodies locked away from prying eyes.

For instance, I'll give you something to chew on:

Open Console (~ on KB), type 'menu debug'
