Enable Cheat Mode in Windows and Linux

  1. Start the game with the ”--cheat” command line option.
  2. During game-play, press left shift & backspace simultaneously.

This should result in a message “Cheats enabled”.
If it doesn't, you are probably using an old key-map & should reset it. See below on how to reset the key-map.

Enable Cheat Mode in Mac OS X

Version 2.0.7

  1. Navigate to the “config” file located in: Users/(User Home
    Directory)/Library/Application Support/Warzone 2100 —> config.
    Replace (User Home Directory) with the name of your home directory.
  2. Make a backup of this file. Right ( or Control ) Click & go to “Duplicate”.
  3. Now right click on the original file & go to “open with” –> Text Edit.
  4. Find the line that says “debugmode=0”.
  5. Change the “0” to a “1”. It should now look like this: “debugmode=1”.
  6. Save the file & open Warzone.
  7. When playing hold down “left shift” & “delete” at the
    same time to go into debug/cheat mode. A message should pop up &
    say “CHEATS ENABLED”. The word “Debug” should also appear at the bottom
    of the game screen.
  8. Now hit “t” on the keyboard to enter chat mode. Type in the cheat codes & hit return.

  3. Navigate the folders till you find warzone2100.sh. It should be in these folders; Contents/MacOS –> warzone2100.sh
  4. Make a backup copy of the file at this point. Right click on the file & go to “Duplicate”.
  5. Open the warzone2100.sh file in TextEdit. You might have to
    right click on the file & go to “Open With –> Other”. Then
    select “TextEdit” from the Applications folder & click on “Open”.
  6. You should see this in TextEdit:


MYDIR=`dirname “$0”`
cd “$MYDIR”
exec ./warzone2100 --datadir ../Resources/data

  • Now add ” --cheat” at the end of the line “exec ./warzone2100
    --datadir ../Resources/data”. Don't forget to include the space after
    the ”/data”.
  • It should now look like this:


MYDIR=`dirname “$0”`
cd “$MYDIR”
exec ./warzone2100 --datadir ../Resources/data --cheat

  • Now save the warzone2100.sh file & start the game.
  • When playing hold down “left shift” & “delete” at the
    same time to go into cheat mode. A message should pop up & say
    “CHEATS ENABLED”. The word “Debug” should also appear at the bottom of
    the game screen.

Resetting your keymap

To reset your keymap:

  • Go to “Options” in the main menu.
  • Select “Key Mappings”.
  • Then click on the trash can in the top left.

Cheatcodes do not work in multiplayer games unless you have a debug binary! Skirmish is not considered multiplayer.

All these cheats can be entered as chat text (press “t” to open up the chat console).
Some cheats will only work in campaign mode.
