        Rise of the Triad, also known as ROTT, is certainly Apogee's
        greatest achievement yet.  It's full of surprises, has mind
        blowing graphics and sound, and in my opinion is worth every
        dime Apogee asks for the registered version.  However, it's not
        for the sensitive or younger player.  Young people under 14
        should not play this game due to its explicit, occasionally gory
        violence.  However, for the mature player looking for a howlin'
        blast-fest, this is a terrific game!
 
        Register the game!
 
        This file contains a complete list of cheat codes for ROTT.
        Most of the cheats have two codes; one is a normal word and
        the other is a three letter acronym preceded with a "\"
        backslash.  Either cheat code has the same effect.
 
        A note about ROTT powerups:  There can be two powerups active at
        a time.  They are displayed at the top of the screen a little to
        the right of center.  There are two "groups" of powerups; you
        can have one powerup from each group active, but powerups from
        the same group will override one another.  For example, if you
        have bulletproof armor, activating a gas mask or asbestos armor
        will replace the bulletproof armor.
 
        In addition, most of the advanced weapons are exclusive.  You
        can have one or two pistols (dual pistols look great but an MP40
        is better), and an MP40 submachine gun, and ONLY ONE OF:
        bazooka, heatseeker, drunk missile, firebomb, flame wall, or the
        "Hand of God".  Hit 1 to select the pistol, 2 to select dual
        pistols, 3 for the MP40 and 4 for the advanced weapon.
 
        In order to use any of the cheat keys, you have to first enable
        the cheats by typing DIPSTICK while in the game.  Typing it
        again will disable cheat keys.
 
        After you've enabled cheat keys, I suggest first using the
        CHOJIN cheat code.  It will make you invulnerable to enemies and
        hazards such as moving walls and spinning blades.  However, no
        cheat code will save you from dying if you jump off the edge
        of the game.
 
        I am fairly certain that this is a complete listing of cheat
        codes.  They are all grouped in one place in the ROTT.EXE file
        and are easy to find there.  Without further ceremony, here they
        are.
 
        ----------------------------------------------------------------
 
        Cheat Key: DIPSTICK     Also: \ECC
 
            This toggles (enables and disables) all the rest of the
            cheat keys.  Without cheat keys toggled on, none of the
            other cheats in this file can work!
 
 
        Cheat Key: CHOJIN       Also: \WWW
 
            This puts you in "Woundless With Weapons" mode.  It has two
            effects.  It makes you invulnerable to enemy fire and the
            various hazards of the game.  It also gives you unlimited
            ammunition for all your weapons, no matter which weapons you
            happen to be using!  This should be the first cheat code you
            use if you plan to cruise through the game.
 
 
        Cheat Key: GOTO         Also: \GTL
 
            This selects a new level.  You get a nice menu to select
            the level of your choice.
 
 
        Cheat Key: SIXTOYS      Also: \GAI
 
            This appears to give you all four keys and a bulletproof
            armor.  The message "Items-A-Plenty" confirms this cheat code.
 
 
        ZDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD?
        3 The following are "Type 1" powerups - selecting one of these   3
        3 will cancel another Type 1 powerup in use.                     3
        3                                                                3
        3   Cheat Key: TOOSAD       Also: \GOD                           3
        3                                                                3
        3       This puts you in God mode.  This is not the same as the  3
        3       God mode of previous Apogee games; this mode is truly    3
        3       neat!  Your height increases by about six feet - you     3
        3       look down on your enemies as if they were children.  And 3
        3       your weapon is the Hand of God - the most powerful       3
        3       weapon in the game, it is a "smart" weapon that kills    3
        3       many enemies at once.                                    3
        3                                                                3
        3                                                                3
        3   Cheat Key: FLYBOY       Also: \MER                           3
        3                                                                3
        3       Here's another great cheat.  This lets you fly!  No more 3
        3       bouncing up to ledges or negotiating complicated         3
        3       catwalks!  Using it is like flapping wings - you have to 3
        3       keep hitting the space bar (or the joytick/mouse button  3
        3       defined as the "Use" button) to stay aloft.              3
        3                                                                3
        3                                                                3
        3   Cheat Key: BADTRIP      Also: \SHR                           3
        3                                                                3
        3       This cheat code is rather crippling, but it is a         3
        3       testament to the imagination of the authors.  It's       3
        3       called "Shrooms" mode, and basically it's a bad drug     3
        3       trip!  The whole room swoons and rocks, and enemies are  3
        3       just colored silhouettes!  Good luck aiming that MP40!   3
        3                                                                3
        3                                                                3
        3   Cheat Key: BOING        Also: \ELA                           3
        3                                                                3
        3       This is another somewhat negative cheat, but it's also   3
        3       interesting.  You have no inertia, the floor offers no   3
        3       friction, and the walls are perfectly elastic!  At the   3
        3       slightest movement, including a hit from an enemy or     3
        3       recoil from your weapons, you start bouncing around      3
        3       almost uncontrollably!                                   3
        @DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDY
 
        Cheat Key: GOOBERS      Also: \GOO
 
            This restarts the game.
 
 
        Cheat Key: WHACK        Also: \OOF
 
            You take a hit point.  "Ouch!!!!"
 
 
        Cheat Key: SPEED        Also: \RFA
 
            This turns on auto-run mode.  When you move while the Shift
            key is pressed, you are in "run" mode, and your movement is
            twice as fast.  You also have twice as much momentum.  This
            cheat code puts you in run mode full time.  The Caps Lock key
            has the same effect.
 
        Cheat Key: PANIC        Also: \PAN
 
            This resets you to basically just a pistol, no keys, no
            armor or powerups.  "Back to normal.  Ah."
 
 
        Cheat Key: DIMON        Also: \DON
 
            This turns on "light diminishing" - the property of the game
            in which objects appear dimmer when they are further away,
            especially in low light.  This is normally on anyway.  The
            game looks more realistic in this mode.
 
 
        Cheat Key: DIMOFF       Also: \DOF
 
            This turns light diminishing off.
 
 
        Cheat Key: LONDON       Also: \FON
 
            This turns on "Fog Mode" - the scene looks as though there's
            a light fog.  This is actually on by default in one level.
 
 
        Cheat Key: NODNOL       Also: \FOF
 
            This turns "Fog Mode" off.
 
 
        Cheat Key: SHINEON      Also: \SON
 
            This turns on "light sourcing" - the property where
            light-producing objects such as lamps, torches etc. appear
            to be the source of some or all the light in the area.  The
            game looks more realistic with this on.  This is normally
            on.
 
 
        Cheat Key: SHINEOFF     Also: \SOF
 
            This tuns light sourcing off.
 
 
        Cheat Key: GOGATES      Also: \L8R
 
            This takes you back to DOS without any further ado.  Very
            fast.
 
 
        Cheat Key: GOARCH       Also: \ECL
 
            This lets you "wuss out" on a level.  It's like you
            completed the level except that the game tells you you've
            wussed out and gives you a benefit-of-the-doubt bonus,
            before going on to the next level.
 
 
        Cheat Key: GOTA386      Also: \CON
 
            This turns off the cielings and floors, leaving them solid
            color.  Apparently this is the normal mode when the game
            runs on 386 machines.
 
 
        Cheat Key: GOTA486      Also: \COF
 
            This turns on the cielings and floors.  Since I have only
            tested the game on a 486, I have no idea what will happen if
            you enable this on a 386.
 
        ZDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDD?
        3 The following are "Type 2" powerups - selecting one of these   3
        3 will cancel another Type 2 powerup in use.                     3
        3                                                                3
        3   Cheat Key: SHOOTME      Also: \BAR                           3
        3                                                                3
        3       This gives you "bulletproof armor", making you           3
        3       invulnerable to projectile weapons.                      3
        3                                                                3
        3                                                                3
        3   Cheat Key: BURNME       Also: \FAR                           3
        3                                                                3
        3       This gives you "asbestos armor", making you invulnerable 3
        3       to fire traps such as the floor flamejets.               3
        3                                                                3
        3                                                                3
        3   Cheat Key: LUNGDUNG     Also: \GAR                           3
        3                                                                3
        3       This gives you a gas mask, saving you from poison gas    3
        3       (where everything looks green).  This is kind of neat    3
        3       because it looks like you're looking through a gas mask! 3
        @DDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDDY
 
        Cheat Key: HUNTPACK     Also: \OFP
 
            "Outfit Player".  This gives you four keys, a bulletproof
            armor and a bazooka!
 
 
        Cheat Key: 86ME         Also: \DIE
 
            Feeling suicidal?  This will kill you.
 
 
        Cheat Key: REEN         Also: \REL
 
            This re-starts (or, RE-ENters) the current level.
 
 
        Cheat Key: JOHNWOO      Also: \GW2
 
            This gives you dual pistols!  You get two shots every time
            you fire, and it's reminiscent of watching an old western,
            except it's in the first person!
 
 
        Cheat Key: PLUGEM       Also: \GW3
 
            This gives you an MP40, a submachine gun with a decent rate
            of fire.  Although this is not the most powerful weapon in
            the game, I find it the most murderously satisfying.
 
 
        Cheat Key: VANILLA      Also: \GW4
 
            This gives you a bazooka, which is a straightforward
            single-shot rocket launcher.  It's a good basic
            anti-personnel weapon if you don't mind being splattered
            with the body parts of your victims...
 
 
        Cheat Key: HOTTIMES     Also: \GW6
 
            This gives you a heat-seeking missile.  It's good for
            fire-and-forget killing without making much effort to aim
            it, but it can be distracted by heat sources, such as
            torches.
 
 
        Cheat Key: BOOZE        Also: \GW7
 
            This gives you a Drunk Missile, which fires several rockets
            at once.  The rockets generally travel forward but their
            flight is erratic and their exact target is never known.
            This is usually not a problem; at least one of the rockets
            will likely hit what you aimed at.
 
 
        Cheat Key: FIREBOMB     Also: \GW5
 
            This gives you a Fire Bomb, which launches an incendiary
            cluster bomb.  Quite devastating.
 
 
        Cheat Key: BONES        Also: \GW8
 
            This gives you a Flame Wall ("You Filched a Flame Wall!")
            which is a sort of upgraded Fire Bomb.  It creates an
            inferno along the wall it hits, taking out everything along
            its path!
 
 
        Cheat Key: SEEYA        Also: \GWC
 
            This gives you the Hand of God - it's the weapon from God
            Mode, but you don't grow in height.  Since this is a weapon
            choice and not a powerup, it doesn't "expire" after a short
            while like God Mode.  The Hand of God is really neat; it
            vaporizes most enemies and can take out several at once.
            For a fun time, enable both this and "ride" mode (see
            below)!
 
 
        Cheat Key: RIDE         Also: \CAM
 
            This toggles the "Missile Cam", so that each time you fire a
            projectile weapon, your view follows the missile until it
            hits!  This is usually more of a distraction than a useful
            feature but if you're using the Hand of God, it can be quite
            nifty!
 
 
        Cheat Key: WHERE        Also: \HUD
 
            This toggles the Heads Up Display, which is a set of
            numbers, presumably giving your gamefield co-ordinates, in
            the upper right corner.
 
 
        Cheat Key: \FUN
 
            I am not sure what the purpose of this is.  It appears to
            lock or pause the computer until you hit the Escape key.
 
 
        Cheat Key: RECORD
 
            This lets you record a demo!  Just type this and the game
            will ask what level you want to start from, then just start
            playing.
 
 
        Cheat Key: STOP
 
            When you are recording a demo, this "stops" the recording,
            and prompts you for a demo slot in which to save the demo.
 
 
        Cheat Key: PLAY
 
            This plays back a demo you have recorded!

        Other useful keys:
 
        F11 - changes the "gamma correction" level.  This can be used to
        quickly brighten a dark scene.
 
        Tab - Activates a level map, showing all the areas you have
        entered.
 
        Caps Lock - toggles Auto-Run mode.
