  • 1605 -

I guess this can be called an easter egg.
This was our first foray into working with a somewhat popular property
The prior branches, they were cut just because they weren't high enough quality
or too drastic a change.
The workflow was surely quite different, But i can't really complain
I'm glad this branch is as is.
It was our magnum opus.

  • 1993 - Lamp Oil? Rope? Bombs? We don't have that.
  • 2011 - Wrong password screen, Zachary

The Palette

The palette's GUI.

Pressing "V" opens the palette. The palette has a list of every block and item (except for the safe block), sorted in order of their IDs. The palette is in both Lilypad QA and Cypress. Cheats must be enabled in order to use the palette in Cypress.

There are two categories, items and blocks. Clicking an item drops a single item, while clicking a block drops a stack of said block.

Numpad Cheats

Note: Numpad cheats can easily be spammed, which can lead to lag and crashes.

Numpad cheats, sometimes called "chat cheats" or just "cheats" are a more primitive way of spawning in items. Numpad cheats are in every playable version of AlphaVer except Cypress. To activate cheats in Alpha Unr.Preview2, enter 2259403-191299 before entering the access code.
To use cheats, you have to:

  1. Open a menu, such as the chat, inventory, or pause menus
  2. Enter the ID of the block or item you want using the number keys on the numpad, note that entering an ID using the standard number keys will not work.
  3. Press the + button on the numpad to create the block or item with the ID you have inputted.
    • If you made an error or want to enter a new ID, press the - on the numpad to clear the inputted ID.
    • If an inputted ID exceeds does not correspond to any block or item, the text (INVALID) will display under it.
    • If an inputted ID exceeds the 32-bit integer limit (2,147,483,647), then the text (ERROR) will be displayed under the ID.
