Make Trespasser Secrets Your Home Page

Miscellaneous information about the game:
- There are six commonly available executables for Trespasser, and one
unavailable executable. The unavailable executable is the Beta
Trespasser exe, presumably version 115. Of the other six, three are
provided on the CD. These three are all version 116, which does not
have the INVUL or TELE cheats enabled. Of the remaining three, two are
available from the patch. These two are version 117, which does not
have the INVUL and DINOS cheats enabled. The last version is from the
Demo. It claims to be version 117, but it doesn't have the INVUL,
DINOS, or WOO cheats enabled.
- To add new levels, it is necessary to copy the entire Trespasser CD
to your hard disk and install from there. This also speeds up the
game. If you're a real Trespasser fan, using the 640 megs or so is worth
it. :) (If you are low on disk space you can delete everything except the
DATA directory once you've installed the game.)
- A note on the cheats. Some of
these, like "woo" and "loc," function as toggle
switches. If you save a game and then reopen it, the state of toggle
cheats is indeterminate. The state of the cheats is not just associated with
a saved game, but also with your current Trespasser session. Say you save a
game one night with "woo" turned on. The next day, you start a new
session with a different game. You turn on "woo." Then you decide
to go back to your saved game. When you load it, the "woo"
instruction is executed again. This turns the cheat off. Put another
way, the saved game just holds the instruction "woo," not the
equivalent of "woo = on." Actually, however, the game is not that
logical. Sometimes the cheat status seems random when you load a saved game.
Upon doing so, check the status of your cheats, especially "woo."
Pull out a weapon and fire it. Then store it and pull it out again. If you
now have less ammo, then "woo" is turned off. Use the cheat to
turn it on. Saving a saved game that you just loaded may reset the cheats to
their original state in the saved game. [Thanks go to Tom Wolery4
for this information.]
Known built-in cheats:
- Automatic aim correction - hit SHIFT+CTRL+left
mouse click while holding a gun and the game will automatically align the
gun sights. This cheat only works in the retail version of the game. This cheat
has been disabled in the Demo and Retail Patched versions.
- Given the manner in which these cheats
are stored in TRESPASS.EXE, it is extremely unlikely that there are any
other cheats utilizing the invisible text window. There may be other
"cheats" built into the system based on certain key sequences
(like the CTRL+SHIFT+F11 level cheat). If these cheats exist they are
holdovers from the GUIApp used to test Trespasser levels.
- Toxin Rifle cheat -
The tip of the toxin rifle is lethal in the Testscene. It is not lethal in level 6 (Ascent
part 1, as.scn), nor in Level 5 (Lab.scn). In fact, in Level 5 it's not actually a
Toxin rifle. For sound effect and rate of fire the properties of that
rifle are the same as a Toxin rifle. For damage, range, and ammo it is the
same as a Calico MP50. Other levels have not been tested yet, but there
are no Toxin rifles in the playing area of those levels.
- Shock Absorbing cheat - If Anne lands on an object instead of the ground
she can fall/jump a lot farther.
If you are moving using the direction keys and hit CTRL+F11 at the same time
Trespasser will continue acting as if you were still holding the direction keys down.
This cheat does not appear to work with firing or jumping, but does work
- At the load screen, hit CTRL+SHIFT+Q+W and a box
will appear containing the filename of all the levels including the secret
ones. Select the one you want to play and click OK.

- While playing the game, hit CTRL+F11 to activate
an invisible text window at the lower left-hand corner of the screen and
then enter one of the following cheats and hit CTRL+F11 to close the
invisible text window. While the window is open you can enter more cheat
codes but beware - the dinosaurs are still active.

1 The Test Scene at night was not changed by the patch but
because of the way the patch works, it doesn't appear when the CTRL+SHIFT+Q+W
cheat is used. To restore it, copy the files TestScnNght.grf and
TestScnNght.scn to the PATCH\ directory where you installed Trespasser. (The
night scene uses the WTD file from the normal test scene - but don't copy it or
you'll overwrite the patched test scene.)
2 The demo scene is only available in the demo but can be
copied into the retail or patched version. To copy it into either
version, you must have installed the game from your hard drive. (I
get to take credit for this hack/cheat. :)
Add the demo level to the Retail version:
Copy the demo-130.pid, demo-130.swp, demo.scn, demo.grf, pv.wtd to the DATA\ directory where you copied the CD.
Add the demo level to the Patched Retail version:
Copy the demo-130.pid, and demo-130.swp to the DATA\ directory where you copied the CD.
Copy demo.scn, demo.grf, and pv.wtd to the PATCH\ directory where you installed Trespasser.
3 Usable - this indicates which version of Trespasser
this cheat exists in. An exclamation point (!) in front of a letter
indicates that the cheat exists but is disabled. A question mark (?)
indicates that I do not know if the cheat exists in that version. I know of
six versions of Trespasser:
- b - Beta, used to create the Brady Official Guide to Trespasser
- w - There was a pirated version of Trespasser
with just the first level floating around the net. I managed to obtain this and it is
identical to the Retail version of the game except that it only has level
1 included with it. It has been removed from the listing above.
- S - the "shareware" version - Though referenced in a review
this was actually just the demo. It has been removed from the
- D - Demo, the demo (version 117)
- R - the retail version of the game (version 116)
- p - the patched version of the retail game (version 117)
If anyone has the beta version, I'd sure appreciate a copy.
4. Thanks to Tom Wolery for letting me know about the
parameters for the SORT cheat. You'll be seeing a lot of thanks to him
throughout my site - he did a LOT of work to find the information I've
