GameShark codes
GameShark codes: Power Up Boko: by Vilurum

Debug room:
Note: This trick requires a GameShark or Pro Action Replay cartridge. Enable the following code in the North American version of the game:

D00705E8 010F
800704A8 0001
D00705E8 010F
800704AA 0049

Enable the following code in the Japanese version of the game:

D006F308 000F
8006F1C8 0001
D006F308 000F
8006F1CA 0049

Load any saved game, enter a town, press Select + L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 to activate debug mode, then refer to the following guide. Note: Press L1 + L2 + R1 + R2 in the Japanese version of the game.

If you have debug mode enabled you can get Seifer and Edea in your party.

Use the following trick to use the debug room without always using a GameShark. Borrowing a GameShark and enter the debug room while standing at the entrance to Dollet on Disc 1. One of the people in one of the rooms (refer to the debug room guide) will allow you to change which disc you are on. Choose Disc 4. Find the save point (also in the guide) and save the game. The game slot should say "Dollet - Town Square" and say "Disc 4" in the disc indicator. Reset your game without a GameShark, and select that game at the load screen. It will say "Please insert Disc 4". Put in Disc 4, and the debug menu will eventually load. Note: That the only way to exit it is to reset.
Information in this section was contributed by Evan.

To exit debug mode without resetting, make sure the GameShark or Codebreaker code is active. Then, while in debug mode, press R1 + R2 + L1 + L2 + Select to return to main screen. Talk to the man in the bottom right corner, then select the "To Main" option. He will give you a selection of parts in the game. Select the one you left off at. Note: There may be a glitch. Ignore it, as the game will not crash.
Information in this section was contributed by Cyclops537.

The easiest way to get out of debug mode is to go to where the Garden was before using the cheat. When you are finished using the cheat, talk to the person at the bottom right corner of the screen and choose "Fly to world". If you choose "Fly to world" when you are in Esthar without the Ragnarok at Balamb, you will not be able to continue the game. You can now fly back to where you were.
