Cheat Menu
 
Someone who will support my idea:
What about a own cheat menu at START/options, instead off press up, down, right, left at the options menu.

How about no cheats at all.

I agree with TripHammer.

Besides, we've already got the Fake console, which you can use to "cheat" if you must.

Battlefront is not a game where cheats are needed.If you are like my little brothers friend(he uses invincibility every time he plays)than you must be terrible.I mean really its not that hard.

he uses invincibility? jeez, that just takes the fun out of the whole game, if u can't die.

LordOfTheFish 02-07-2008 02:55 PM

Not to metion he doesn't even play in elite. :P

If you don't like cheats then don't use them, it's as simple as that, no-one is forcing you. The cheats are usually put in during development, and in the majority of games the devs see no reason to remove them, because there isn't one.
Most people who use cheats don't do it because they're sh*t at the game, they do it because its fun to run around pwning up as opposed to getting killed moments before taking a command post.
It would just be stupid for them not to put in the cheats because a few whiners think it "takes the fun out of it". The cheats simply being available doesn't ruin your game, but for those who think that the cheats are fun for when the game gets a bit old (or yes, hard) then a lack of cheats would immediately ruin the game.

TripHammer 02-08-2008 03:34 PM

Yea.. I'd agree with that. I have no problem with cheats in single player. My problem with them lies in multi-player mode. But that's a null issue in SWBF2.

LordOfTheFish 02-10-2008 03:54 PM

Cheats, can be fun at times I agree with you on that. But I just dont think I like using them in Battlefront.Unless Im trying to figure out how to get on the Tall platforms in kashyyyk or something like that.

NL_Sudentor 02-14-2008 02:39 PM

Cheats suck, just show skill and play fair!!!

deathclone 02-19-2008 03:12 AM

i use cheats if i try the level fr months and cant do it. which has never happend. i agree cheats can be fun but yea THEY TAKE THE FUN OUT OF IT and so far no one agrees cheats except for the guy thats said u dont hav to use em. bu im not sure if he agreed i didnt read all of it. but all of us guys on the forums r pros right? if i could be a trooper mos eisly assult i would own all the jedi

jawathehutt 02-19-2008 03:21 PM

I dont actually play bf2 anymore so I probably suck at it

DeadYorick 02-26-2008 02:01 AM

Cheating is bad Mkay

But I learn it as a habit to find out if the game has cheats or not. I usually do a playthrough of the game using cheats to find out the plot of the game and how hard it is. Then I play the game not using cheats.

Yeah me to.If there was such a thing as pro I would probably be considered one. I also trounce around pwning every Jedi I see. Now I actually Play against other player and I don't use Jedi. They do though. Its a fun and effective way to show your skill.

I agree with machinecult, if you don't want the cheats, just don't use them. Besides, I have my own ideas for the kinds of cheats available, and the ways of getting them.

1) The "I suck at this" cheat: lose the same battle 9 times on the easiest mode at easiest possible odds and a window will pop up saying, "Do you want to actually win the battle?" with Yes / No options. Selecting yes gives you loads more ammo, loads more health, higher damage shots, and a buddy following you around. This ensures that even the guys who REALLY suck at the game can, eventually, get through the game. Once you've beaten the battle that was giving you trouble, however, these go away. Selecting "No" simply lets you keep trying to win.

2) Various unlockable levels of "Shield Generator" which gives you an extra bar of "shield" health sort of like in BFII, but regenerates after a time of not getting hit. The second highest level (available after playing through a story mode on hardest difficulty) would be a quickly regenerating shield that basically makes you so tough only a rocket, lava, or an AT-AT's foot can take you down. The absolute highest level is pure invulnerability from anything and everything; swimming across rivers of lava to find hidden, amusing easter eggs would become possible with this activated - stormtrooper rock concert, anyone? You'd first catch sight of it through a sniper rifle, probably, then activate the cheat and swim on over.

3) Various unlockable levels of a "buddy" ranging from a tiny little orb used by jedi to train their lightsabers and does nothing except draw a few enemy shots away from you to a fully fledged assault droid you can ride on if you want. Again, it would be unlocked after playing through on hardest difficulty.

4) Various unlockable levels of "Ammo Packs" which give you stages from a single extra clip of everything to unlimited clips (my favorite thing to do on BFII was run around with an infinite rocket launcher & grenades and watch stormtroopers get launched by the fireworks) or even simply an endless clip (infinite ammo with no reloads required). Playing through on hardest difficulty unlocks the unlimited clips, and playing through a SECOND time on hardest would unlock the endless clip option. A separate option for vehicles would simply reduce the reload time until the endless clip becomes available.

5) Unlockable levels of "Coolant injectors" which increase the overheat times and lower cooldown times for blasters and cannons that use overheating as a limiting factor to how much you can fire them. The ultimate level (zero heat-up from firing) would be achieved the first hardest-difficulty playthrough.

6) More force energy available for a jedi's force powers, you should know the drill for the restrictions by this point.

7) More energy for actions such as running fast, jumping, etc. You know the drill.

There's probably more, but remember: the cheats are only for singleplayer or local co-op modes, and each cheat would have varying "intensities" if you will. If you're against all out unlimited ammo, but would like to have a little more ammo for that one thing you're always running out of, you can do that. If you want to turn on the impermeable armor for a brief moment to run screaming from a pursuing vehicle until it runs you down, then you can do that too. If you want to grab a sniper rifle and a jetpack, and turn on the option for unlimited jetpack fuel, and fly around sniping headshots like Fett would, then you can even do that (until you get skewered by a passing speeder).

The cheats would be unlockable, simply there for those who want them, and have varying levels for anyone who wants to use them. Even I admit that playing invincible is just no fun, but I'd like to be able to last a little longer than twelve seconds in an intense movie-like firefight before dying, and something like this would allow me to do just that. Games are made to be fun, and having cheats available in some obscure section of the in-battle options menu would allow more people to have their own kind of fun, especially the people who just want to correct the little things about the game that irritate them (such as dying TOO quickly to have fun, overheating too quickly to kill much, or just plain not being able to "blow **** up," to quote the folks at Insomniac.

Having cheats also means you can literally unwind after getting angry at someone without getting frustrated by anything. That's something I do sometimes myself, after a day of getting annoyed by preps and evil teachers, I just want to sit back, relax, and annihilate a few thousand hostiles singlehandedly. Oh, wait, if I want to do that I just play DW, nevermind. (If you know what that is, then you understand). But I digress. My fingers are getting stiff and I'm trying to eat. Peace out!

After playing for the first time ever with cheats(btw, thanks to triphammer and the other folks at GT for investing so much time into finding them), I think it is a decent thing, as long as there is absolutely no way at all that they could ever be used in multiplayer

Yes but preventing from multiplayer....
That's the real deal.
It will be difficult but i agree with you, that it must be prevented at multiplayer gaming.

I don't want wallhacking, statspadding, aimbotting, invisible cheats.
damn you are unskilled when using cheats.

And a tip for cheat users. When a map is difficult, just start playing mario for the coming 10 years!!!!
