stuff I've found

hi guys!

here is some stuff that I found lately that maybe you didn't know about

if you reload while Twinsen is blowing Gawley's horn, he will reappear with the horn in his hand

you can speed up the game by pressing alt then f12 and then you let go of alt and you can move around really fast. It could be usefull in practice run to speed up cut scenes.

If you are playing the cd version you can use hotkeys for items:

clover : c
mecca : m
Gawleys horn : g
protopack : j
holomap : h
show fps : f
arm magic ball: 1
arm saber : 2

sadly these apparently don't work on the GOG version appart from the holomap wich is useless

btw what is the "swamp rat"?

Everytime you post something on this forum it's like finding a wrapped up present, full of great new things. I'm gonna try these things out immediately. The hotkeys specifically i think would be of great use, instead of wasting time through inventory navigation. And this speed trick, it's nothing specific for dosbox or anything no?

About the swamp rat. The trick itself is when you're throwing your magic ball at the computer in the teleportation center, instead of destroying it with your magic saber. You do it when you're on your way destroying the telepods, by lining yourself up with the cables and hitting the computer with your ball from there. It saves much more time, unfortunately i have no video to show it in action.

As for the name itself, it's a misquote from Doc when he tried referencing the "womp rats" quote in Star Wars. He just called it the swamp rat trick, and i continued the misquote just to annoy him.

Amazing yes! The shortcuts need to be added to the GOG version. Someone needs to contact them! As for the speed trick I guess it's more like from the emulation.
