Exploring the OverBlood 2 Debug Menu
In the process of putting together this website I came across a page on The Cutting Room Floor detailing the debug info for OverBlood 2.
After getting into the debug menu and taking some time to play around, I recorded the below video in which you can take a look at some of the areas you cannot freely explore during a regular play-through of the game, see some weapons not seen during the regular game and more….
For anyone interested in exploring the debug mode themselves, here is how I did it…
Using the ePSXe emulator and a Japanese ROM file, OverBlood 2’s debug menu can be accessed by loading the following cheat codes;
Once the cheat codes have loaded, simply start the game before activating them. After the cheats are activated, press “L2” during gameplay and you should see the debug menu – this did take some trial and error to get working, so be patient.
Once you are in the debug menu, you are able to jump to the following locations within the game using the screen which displays “Episode”, “Block”, “Localno” and “Program” – simply input the following codes;
Carmine Lake Scene (night): 1011
Billboard Island Control Room: 1601
Navarro’s Flying Fortress: 1611
Gunner Scene: 1621
2nd Computer: 2202, 2262 (note, this can cause the game to crash!)

I’d like to give a huge shout out to Tunedi for helping me access OverBlood 2’s debug menu, and also for providing all of the above codes – ultimately making this post possible.
