The original EGA (TXT file) version of the game game has an built-in debug mode that can be activated and turned off simply by typing the phrase "razzle dazzle root beer" at any time. This debug mode was for programmers and beta-testers to bypass long or difficult sequences. NOTE: These codes do not work for the VGA (icon) version.
Once the debug mode is on, you can hold the ALT key, and press the key indicated, to activate a command. These commands can be use to edit your character's statistics and skills; add items to your inventory; and even teleport to almost any location in the game.
The cheat mode is automatically turned off when you exit a particular game screen. However, it is recommended that you explicitly exit it by typing the phrase before leaving the screen.
Some codes have been known to cause minor bugs and/or glitches in the game, so be careful. You have been warned!

To edit your character stats in a saved game, you will need a hex editor with search capability and a calculator that converts decimal to hexadecimal. This works in all of the games.
Those with lockpicking skills and a lockpick or a Thieves' toolkit can use this pseudo-cheat or trick to improve their lockpicking skill very quickly.
