Create any of the following files in the root game directory:
zz_autobahn.cfg = Makes foreign cars selectable in multiplayer
zz_airlift.cfg = Modifies the Load Mission window so that you can
load any mission. Requires an existing saved game
zz_creditline.cfg = No cash limit in the trip missions. You can buy
anything that is currently available.
At the end of a mission, you are presented with a screen which enables
you to either Customize your vehicle, Quit or Continue. When you are
at this screen, ALT – TAB back to windows.
Go into the root directory where Interstate 82 has been installed. You
will find a file called “User” – This is the file which contains all
the information about what vehicle and weapons you currently have.
In the root directory you will also have a sub directory called
“Variant” – This is where all the information about other vehicles
(Including news vehicles created for the “Instant Action” missions)
You can view all these files with Notepad, as they are text files.
(You can view the names of the variants to find the correct vehicle
All that needs to be done, is to delete the “User” file, and
copy one of the “Variant” files into the root directory, and rename it
If you then ALT – TAB back into the game, and select “Customize Car”,
you should have your new vehicle in place of your old one.
(Note – The last vehicle you used in the previous mission, is
automatically selected when you rejoin a saved game. For this reason,
you cannot edit the “User” file before you start Interstate
’82 as it will be overwritten.)
Use notepad, or any other text viewer, to edit the “User” (Or any
variant) file. You can edit what weapons are installed, and can even
fit weapons that would not normally be able to be used on the selected
If you choose to replace a small weapon with a larger weapon, it may
not appear on the schematic of you vehicle inbetween missions – The
weapons should, however, appear on your car when in the game.
Go to any level and choose any car. Now park your car anywhere on the
map and take another car on the map. Go in the teleporter. Go at the
same place that you left your first car and you will see two of the
same car if the cheat worked. Do this if you need some cars in Instant
action mode. This code can be used unlimited times.
Like Taurus always says, “Never get out of the car unless there’s
a powered-up vehicle waiting for you a few feet away. Traveling on foot
is asking for trouble one bullet, and you’ll go down.
When using the N2O boost, make sure that the road in front of you is
completely flat. Hitting a small bump could send you sailing to your doom.
In the tunnel areas, keep those headlights on, and keep checking the map
for bottomless pits they may show up on the topographical chart.
In multiplayer racing modes, bringing along a big rig is always fun for
competition. “Accidentally” knocking opponents off a ridge is always good
for a laugh or two, but may get you booted from the game server.
