Curse of the Azure Bonds Cheats

Here is a list of the cheats I’ve found so far in Curse of the Azure Bonds.

Adding STING to the command line (first parameter) will:

  • Skip the Title screen
  • Allow toggling debug mode, press CTRL+D. Output is put in the DEBUG.txt file. While in debug mode:
    • Each executed Byte Code is logged to the debug file
    • Press CTRL+Z to dump the affects that each party member has
    • Press CTRL+C to exit the game straight away

Adding Wooden to the command line (second parameter) will allow you to:

  • Display the area map in all areas
  • Skip the copy protection, so you don’t need the code wheel, not that it matters as most abandon ware sites have the cracked version.
  • Turn on “Free Training” when in a trainer, press J. This means:
    • You don’t pay the 1000 gold pieces
    • You don’t need to have the required EXP to train
    • Your character doesn’t need to be conscious
    • Training centers will train all classes
    • You will be given the required EXP to be the level you have just trained for
  • Pressing Alt-x or ‘-‘ (minus) in combat will cause “The Gods intervene!” and kill all enemies

Thus you would type “start.exe STING Wooden” at the DOS prompt.

I hope this helps someone may be stuck in the game.

Edit: Here’s a video showing these cheats in action.
