hack timer <- cant u guys just freeze timers with 1 button?
It could all be combined into one key, but the hacks are all done in seperate places. It's not just one bit of the game to hack in order to get them all frozen. Also if someone reports some sideeffect, then it's easier to troubleshoot exactly which hack option is causing it, rather than having no idea on which of the 4/5 options is an issue.
i will have to revisit the XP option and see. I am certain that it is the correct value but perhaps there is more to it than just increasing that value. Would it be easier if I just made an increase LEVEL option instead?
That's why the idea is to turn the options on only when necessary in the first place. So if there are no enemies around, you won't be needing god mode etc. I know it can be a bit of an inconvenience, but with a game like this it can be necessary.
