Always make a backup copy before making any changes. Open the
“anachronoxanoxdataconfigs” folder and edit the File,
“Default.cfg”, with any text editor. Look for ‘set debug 0’
and change the 0 to a 1. Press ~ to display the console window,
then type invoke 1:86 to unlock the cheat menu.

See Sly’s head:
In the Whitendon Ice Caves, in the intermission sequence before the Boss, you
can see Sly’s head on a snow mound.
8 Cobalt Crawlers:
To get the 8 Cobalt Crawlers easily, use the invoke 1:86 code to enable cheat
mode and select to “Choose Map” at the cheat menu. Select “Democratus Surface”,
then “Ballotine/Doren/Whitendon” in that order to go the Whitendon map. Once
there, open the console window and type invoke 87:3035. There will be a dialogue
— click through it, and receive a cobalt crawler. Repeat it another seven times
to get the eight needed to assemble Hecatomb, the game’s most powerful Mystech.
Note: This is only useful once you have passed the Elementor introduction by
Grumpos in Hephaestus.
To get flower petals to upgrade your Beetles in the Elementor window without
having to exit and reenter the area you found one in, or wait for it to
regenerate, open the console window and type invoke 30:2000. You can keep
doing this as many times as needed with a regeneration time of a few seconds,
as long as you are in an area where there actually is a lifeflower.
On the Sender Station, build up some money by buying Shamfoofa Shells from
Sandie (in the Starports) and selling them to Vince (in the Longe of Commerce).
When you manage to stock up enough money, buy about 400+ or 500+ shells from
Sandie again. You must have at least 1 Life Flower Petal to do this trick.
When you try to sell your rare item (the Flower Petal), you will notice that
you can only sell a Twin-Scaled Underplate instead. Sell this item to get 5000
loonies. By doing this, you only subtract 1 Shell from your inventory. Keep
repeating this to gain a large amount of money.
Lots of money:
1.Goto Sender station.
2.Make sure you have at least 2 Life Petals. (You can only get one at a time, but
they respawn when you leave the area and re-enter. There’s one in the Mystech
tunnels, and one to the right side of the entrance to Pump 7, behind a tree in
3.Goto one of those vender robots, and buy some Shamfoofa Shells.
4.Then choose the “Sell your rare item” option, and there should be a “Twin-Scaled
Underplate” option. Sell that. You get a good sum of money for each one you sell.
Only the count of Shamfoofa shells is detracted, not the Life Petal count.
5.Repeat: buy lots of Shamfoofa shells, and then sell the Underplates.
Note: that this also works for some other items that the vendor sells, but the
Shamfoofa shells produce the best results.
If you install the 1.02 patch, A taxi service is included in the game to shorten
your run from one area to another. This comes in useful when you’re trying to get
around on Anachronox.
In game cheat menu:
The cheat console can be activated without modifying your Anachronox config file.
To do this, simply enter the game and hold ALT SHIFT and F10. Now when you press ~
the cheat menu appears. Hold the three keys again to remove it. A small cheat panel
that allows you to modify your characters and inventory can be accessed by typing
in ‘invoke 1:86’ in the console.
