    DESCRIPTION

    Virgil's debug menu is an addition to Virgil's dialog. It gives you a number of cheats to easily test various things right from the start and/or just fool around. All new commands are available via the questions' branch.

    LIST OF FEATURES

    The debug menu lets you do the following:

    * Mark all map locations
    * Get highest training in all skills
    * Get free fate points, XP, gold and character points
    * Get the ability to sail your own ship at anytime
    * Change the story status
    * Change your alignment and aptitude
    * Add or remove any blessing or curse
    * Use teleportation without the spell and regardless of your stats
    * Change your race and gender at anytime
    * End game and play slides at anytime
    * Go to normally unreachable locations such as the Isle of Despair and the Void at anytime
    * Come back to Arcanum from the Void
    * Get spell mastery at anytime
    * Spawn a random monster for your own amusement

    INSTALLATION

    Just put the .dat file into your Arcanum folder. If you're already using an older version of the debug menu, then delete it ("data\dlg\01324Virgil.dlg"), otherwise it won't work.

    Already the first version was extremely useful when quick tests of specific characters and such were needed. This one, however, seems to be a masterpiece in its category. You have my gratitude for creating this fine tool, Drog.

    A truly magnificent piece of work!

    Now all I need is a way of spawning any item and I'm all set up for testing!

    When I click on the link to get the Virgil's cheat menu, I get a 404 error.

    Most propably that link won't work for a period of time, at best. Worry not, however: It may be a temporary solution, but I uploaded the file HERE.

    Forgive me, I've put this file into my Arcanum folder (the same folder as the level cap remover which works, this verifies it's in the right folder... right?), and I can't find out how to work it?

    I will never. Your sins are too great.

    Yes, we're talking about the game folder, the one where you can find, say, the Arcanum.exe file.
    All you have to do is place the ArcanumXVirgilDebug.dat in that folder. Once that's done, talk to Virgil, choose the "questions" line and an additional [DEBUG MENU] question will be there.

    Drog is dead.

    I killed him.

    No, really.

    The body is still in the cave.

    the virgil debug/cheat menu would be nice IF it was actually posted on the site...i just spent the last 20min looking for it in the DL section AND the all the links i could find on it gave me a server 404 page not found error. Ive been playing arcanum for a few years now off and on and have DL several of the modules etc...as well and loved them and i come here to the site daily to check on things and read more about the mods and plans for them etc...as well as to check on the potential issues people have with them before i choose to install them or not. Any help with this would be appreciated

    Hey Guys,

    I finally found an old version of the Virgil Cheat, the one that make you crate a dlg, scr, and protrait folder.

    And I found the ArcanumXVirgilDebug. I followed the instructions, and I am sorry to say, it did not work.

    I even used variations of the instructions.

    I would love to try this Virgil hack, if anyone can explain how to install it, and make it work.

    Thanks,

    Don Santiago de Quixos

    Should be a simple matter, really.

    You'll have to create the following paths manually:


    Put the .scr in Arcanum\mods\Arcanum\scr\

    The .dlg file goes into Arcanum\mods\Arcanum\dlg\


    And all portraits to Arcanum\mods\Arcanum\portrait\


    This should over-ride any files used by the game in those directories....regardless if you have a mod or not. I do believe you must have at least the 1074 patch, however.

    I'm curious why is the old version preferable to the new one.

    Test 'er out, Muro. See why. I'm assuming you have a link to it or perhaps have it in archive?
