Debug Mode

There was a significant difference in the debug modes available between Leisure Suit Larry 6 VGA and the enhanced SVGA edition. The VGA release supported a fully featured debug mode while the enhanced version was shipped with the remnants of some debugging 'helpers'. Surprisingly, and unlike most debug mechanisms, these are always active and thus could possibly be picked up by a casual player.

For owners of the VGA version, drop in the contents of this file into your game directory. When the game is next run, you'll be prompted for a location to start in. Each separate location has a unique number (press Alt-R for room info) and you can quickly jump (via the Alt-T, Teleport, command) to each.

The remaining elements of debug mode within the enhanced edition are still actually worthwhile mentioning - certain actions could be triggered by clicking 4 times with the "hand icon" on the following list of objects:

Front desk lobby

Left chandelier - Gives stuff to fix cellulite machine
Right chandelier - The maid's cart is now upstairs
Ashtray - Gives you ThunderBird's sequence
Counter door - Gives you Char's sequence
Counter top - Gives current free memory

Hall with elevator

Plant above elevator - Shablee has the gown and gives Larry the condom and champagne

Larry's Room

Overhang above toilet door - Gets the plumber to work on sink/toilet
