Article #12 (25 is last): From: ah499@cleveland.Freenet.Edu (John Daniels) Newsgroups: freenet.sci.comp.atari.product.jaguar.hints Subject: Alien vs. Predator cheat codes Posted-By: xx004 (aa399 - Len Stys) Date: Thu Feb 16 21:59:42 1995 Here are the original postings (more or less) by Purple Hampton followed by several postings that some users made who didn't think that Purple's were very clear. As usual I don't have the original poster's byline for attribution. --- Alien vs. Predator - Cheat Codes Part I This is the first of two parts of a cheat code. Best used for when playing as a Marine. Below are a few definitions: Hold= Whenever it says "hold" a certain key, you must do so throughout the entire process. Press= Whenever it says "press" a certain key, just press the key and move on. To Activate the code do the following from within the main game screen: 1. Hold PAUSE 2. Hold OPTION 3. Press the "1" and "3" Keys 4. Hold the "2", "5", "7", and "9" keys together YOU WILL HEAR THE PREDATOR LAUGH TO CONFIRM THAT THE CODE HAS BEEN ACTIVATED!!! This code enables the following functions: SECURITY CLEARANCE Press OPTION + 6 To Raise Security Level Press OPTION + 9 To Lower Security Level MOTION TRACKER Press OPTION + 8 To toggle tracker on/off WEAPON ACCESS: Press OPTION + 1- 4 To access Marine Weapons (1=shotgun, etc...) ALL WEAPON RECHARGE: Hold OPTION + Press "1", "2", "3", "4" at same time --- Alien vs. Predator - Cheat Codes Part II: 1. Press PAUSE 2. Press OPTION 3. Press 6 4. Press 1 + 3 5. Press the following sequence: "B" , "A", "9", "A", "9", "A", "*", "OPTION", "6", "#", "*" , "*", "OPTION", "2", "OPTION". YOU WILL HEAR A SECOND PREDATOR LAUGH TO CONFIRM!!!! PART II Function Keys: This second code gives you all of the functions listed in Part 1 of the code but the main function of the second phase of the cheat is that you will never run out of energy or ammo as the bars will replenish themselves as long as you have something from the start (meaning if you don't have any smart-gun ammo when you activate the cheat, you still won't have any once it's turned on... at which point you use the ammo replenish function as described in cheat code part 1...) OPTION + A Raises you a level in the base OPTION + BLowers you a level in the base OPTION + 5Toggles Cheat Mode On / Off --- Subject: That AvP cheat code ...I had a lot of trouble with it. The instructions posted here are quite vague. So, here is how you REALLY do it... First, start a game. When they say "main game screen", that's not the title screen. That is the screen where you are playing a game! Next, hold down the pause button. Then hold down the option button. Don't push them at the same time -- do them in order, so you've got the HUD and game-save options on screen. Keep holding them both down through the rest of the sequence. Next, press 1 and 3 at the same time, and release. This will make the option stuff disappear. Finally, mash the 2, 5, 7, 9 keys at the same time. You are still holding pause and option, right? Yeah, it almost takes three hands, but you can do it. The predator will laugh then. Now all your codes are enabled: OPT+6 = increase security clearance OPT+9 = lower security clearance OPT+8 = toggle motion tracker on/off OPT+[1-4] = toggle various weapons OPT+1,2,3,4 = resupply all ammo (a bit tricky to hit all those buttons at once) You can also use the code for the Predator. It doesn't seem to do anything except give him weapons, but that's cool. You can start a new game with zero points, give him all the weapons, then cruise around invisible, slaughtering marines right and left. It can even give you a subtle advantage as the Alien. You can disable your claw attack. Then when you select tail or bite, that weapon will stay ready to strike -- makes it faster to bring into action. This works really well for the tail whip, because it can reach out and paralyze a marine before he knows what hit him. It's neat to see the tail tip hovering in the upper right corner of the screen, and use it to open doors.
