Save game bug
The original release of this title may corrupt the save game. This occurs when the game is loading a new section of the mansion and your character moves back into the old section of the mansion and/or walks against one of the walls. Then, multicolored textured polygons may appear from random spots on the sides and top of the screen and stretch to the vanishing point in the center of the screen. These stretched polygons may even completely obscure the screen. If the game is saved while the polygon bug is in effect, it will be retained in the save game. Some corrupted save games may lock up the game when loaded.
If you stop moving when a new section of the mansion is being loaded, the bug will not occur. As an added precaution, use multiple saved games.
The The 3DO Company should be contacted to arrange a trade-in for a corrected version of the game. Another solution to the problem is to use the option to fix the corrupted file available on the The 3DO Game Guru list of Killing Time items.
To enter cheat mode, start a new game. Games in progress cannot use the code. On the "Player's Name" screen enter ".EVORGRAH" (Professor Hargrove's name spelled backwards). Note that the period (.) is the first character in the code. Select a difficulty level, highlight "OK" and press A. The sound of a harp will confirm correct entry of the code. The cheat mode will stay active until the 3DO is reset.
After entering the code, you can enter many options in the name box using the following password key. The password is made up of two periods, the starting location code, and any other options from the list below. For example: ..AT123ABCIQ will start the game in the Attic with three winged vessels, three keys, invincibility, and map coordinates.
Starting locations: The game will start in the corresponding room at 50% health, a pistol, and 30 rounds of ammuntion, unless you specify other options.
