Please note that the following cheats do not work for the gog verison of Creatures.
If you know how to access cheat modes in this version, please let me know.
To use these cheats you need to run RegEdit.exe that is in the Windows directory
Or merge the correct file from this zip
Follow the following folders
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Software \ Millenium Interactive \ Creatures \ 1.0
Select the "Privileges" key, its value should be "User".
Change to "Doctor" or "skirty" if you have the Observation Kit (version 1.04) , "Darwin" or "Cheese" if you don't.
Be careful as you can also pick up scenery objects for example the underwater foot, pillars, plants, fire, drips, waves, rocks.
When you load up creatures Doctor and Darwin cheats open a blank empty world, from which you must load one, Skirty and Cheese will open World.sfc by default.
DOCTOR / SKIRTY
When you start the game with Doctor cheat enabled, Eden.sfc is loaded initially
Skirty loads world.sfc
New, Open, Save the World, Save As - to control which world is being used
Infinite scroll - allows you to scroll to any part of Albia
Create a male norn, Create a female norn - creates artificial banana norns
Force Ageing - forces current norn to age by one step
Instant Verb Vocabulary - teaches the current norn all verbs, it also changes what your norn calls itself, so re-register them in the Owner's Kit
Creatures Burble - allows you to switch off norn sounds
Infect Current Norn - does what it says
Euthanasia - kill current creature
This menu contains many options, but all are unfortunately unselectable
General affects of the cheats:
Right click picks up and drop norns, shift and left click allows movement of any object (even those usually unmovable). Remember that the game treats objects picked up in the two ways differently, those picked up in the normal way are "carried" and those shift-clicked are "edited".
Remember that you need to save the game on exiting when using any cheat as they remove the exit saving function.
At the moment only the sounds your creatures make.
Goto the same part of the registry as for the Darwin cheat and find the 'Sonic' key.
Changing the value of this to 'bibble', 'nilnilly', or 'Barney' will change the sounds your Norns make.
This will probably get on your nerves very quickly.
To make it so that the game will run without the CD, either use BORG - it will open Creatures automatically when it is run. Or try the following method:
1) Go to the "INTRO" directory of the
2) Copy the file "SMACKPLW.EXE" to the creatures directory on your hard drive.
3) run RegEdit.exe from, your Windows directory
4) Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Millenium Interactive\Creatures\1.0\
5) Edit the "IntroPath" so its value is the the path of your Creatures directory
Hey presto! your game will now run without the need of the CD
Open up RegEdit, and find the entry:
Under there there'll be a version key, like "0.1".
Inside that there should be a key called "Eggstra", with a value of six characters. Each character represents one possible egg in the hatchery: if it's an "x", it means the egg's been used. Alter it to "0", for a female or "1" for a male.
