Half-Life: Blue Shift
Add to this page!
Start the game with the "-console" command line parameter. Press ~ to display the console window, then enter sv_cheats 1 before loading a game or level to enable cheat mode. Enter one of the following codes at the console window to activate the corresponding cheat function.
|No clipping mode||noclip|
|All weapons||impulse 101|
|Set gravity; 800 is default.||sv_gravity <number>|
|Set jump distance; 10 is default||sv_accelerate <number>|
|Set skill level; 1 is easiest||skill <1-3>|
|Toggle third person view||chase_active <0 or 1>|
|Level select||map <level name>|
Use one of the following entries with the map <level name> code.
Enable the impulse 101 code. Once you are in
the main room, go to the bathrooms and open your locker. Take
out a powerful weapon or a crowbar and crouch down and start beating
(or shooting) the box. After beating the box with a crowbar over
50 times, or shooting it with a laser or some other powerful weapon,
it will break open. There will be a little live alien in the box.
You cannot do anything to it except look at it.
Start a new game and before the train stops moving,
enable the impulse 101 code. While the guard is trying
to open the locked door, press [F6] to do a quick save.
Get a weapon (pistol or crowbar recommended) ready. When he opens
the door, wait for him to open the door on the other side of the
room. Once that is open, shoot his foot. He will say something
similar to "What do you want on your tombstone?", etc.
and begin to shoot you. He will kill you if you do not kill him
first. If you kill him, you will not get into trouble (and continue
playing normally afterwards). Press [Esc] and load the
game that you quick saved. Do the same thing, and he will say
something different. At times, he will not attack. Do not do this
with any other guard -- when you shoot them you will be fired
for mishandling a firearm (even if you use a crowbar).
See Gordon Freeman
When you just get out of the tram and the guard is
having trouble opening the door, turn around. Eventually, another
tram will pass by with Gordon Freeman inside it, which is the
start of Half-Life.
After you finally get in the locked door at the beginning, find
the strips on the walls which will lead you to different areas
such as the armory and personal facilities. Find the one which
reads "Video Surveillance". Follow it to a security
room which will have monitors. Go up to each one of the monitors
and press "Use". One should show the shooting range,
and another will show a female in a hazard suit pushing a cart.
However, one of the monitors will show Freeman arriving at the
Anomalous Materials lab. He will walk past another scientist who
will say "Good morning Gordon".
Kill Gordan Freeman
On the train (where you start) enable the noclip
and impulse 101 codes. When the train drop you off at the
little platform, look at the platform that you just passed. Fly
over there, and if you get there soon enough pull out your crowbar.
Hit him until he explodes.
Suicide scientist witness
In the main lobby, go to the scientist talking to the
guard. After they finish talking, follow the scientist to the
top of the main lobby. When he goes to the side of the rail, jump
over it. He will look down and say "My God, what are you
doing?". When he says this, you should say in your head,
"Killing myself". You can refill on health by going
back up there and getting some drinks from the venders.
Fun with spawning
Enable cheat mode, then use the entities code
to get a list of the creatures in the location you are currently
in. Usually, when you try to spawn a creature, you have to use
the noclip code to levitate in the air and spawn the creature
nowhere near any objects. If a part of a spawned creature is spawned
within a wall, ceiling, or another creature, the game crashes.
However, if you enable the developer 0 code, the game continues
even if a spawned creature is stuck, but the creature has yellow
dots around it. Also, bind the spawn commands to unused keyboard
keys; for example bind X "impulse 76" or bind
y "give monster_scientist". The impluse 76
code works everywhere, and the hostile grunts created with it
are easy to place where you want them; as they appear in front
of you, rather than above. Now, enable the noclip code
and fly around pressing the bound keys. Watch as Barney's Aliens
and Grunts battle it out while Scientists run around being slaughtered.
At the beginning, when you go to the Personal Facilities
to get into your uniform, go to the restroom stalls. One will
be locked. Enable the noclip code and go through the door.
Look at the back of the door. One of the game's programmers will
be pictured there. This occurs again after you and Dr. Rosenberg
go down the elevator. At the room where you some out of the elevator,
there will be a fallen vent. Once again, enable the noclip
code to go through the vent. At the end of it, you will see the
same picture. (Screenshot 1)
The flashlight, on any level, does not always work.
If yours does not, make your screen resolution larger. If this
still has no effect, pause game play, turn it on, and continue
that way. Do the same to turn it off.
Start a new game, and when you enter the main room, go to the bathrooms. Look for a guard who is getting ready for work. Note where he is then quickly get your armor and helmet on and run to the nearest sink. The guard will start to approach your sink. When he is starting to get close, turn on the sink by pressing [Use] and move away so he can use it. While he washes, get directly behind him and start pressing [Use] about once every half second. He should be saying "Calhoun, I'm ", "Shouldn't you be on?", "Swing by later and ", etc. so he gets cut off every time. Soon, he will say"Ouch, Ooof, Arrgh, Ouch". Back away, the screen will turn black, and will say that you hurt or killed someone with a firearm, and will start over. What makes this interesting is that you haveno gun when this happens.
Play as Gordon Freeman
Enable the /thirdperson code to change your
screen into third person view. You will see the player as Gordon
Freeman instead of Calhoun, Enable the /firstperson code
to return to normal.
Kill Dr. Rosenberg and keep playing
After he says "I just want to get out of here,"
shoot him in the head and kill him. The message "Employee
assumed to have perished..." will appear and the screen will
turn black. When the elevator stops, the screen will light up
again, but the message will remain on the screen for a few seconds.
Play as long as desired in the lab, but do not go back up the
elevator or kill Simmons or Walter.
