Cheat Codes:

    While playing the game, press (Left-Control)(Left Shift) and the number seven (7) all at the same time. A console will appear. You can give yourself stuff by typing "give item number" (ie. give mushroom 100) that will add 100 mushrooms to your inventory. The console asks for a password, but there isn't any. Here are some codes to try:

  1. noConCollide (clipping mode, walk-thru walls, etc)
  2. conCollide (turns off clipping mode)
  3. setFirstPerson
  4. setThirdPerson
  5. exist
  6. listActive
  7. handsOff
  8. show
  9. The command "teleport" will allow you to place Conner anywhere on the map. You would type "teleport" in the console and then press (Left-Control)(Left Shift) and the number seven (7) to exit the console. Bring up the big map and click anywhere on it. Conner will end up there. Caution: placing Conner up high where he will fall to the ground will cause his demise. Enjoy! teleport (type this and your map clears completely. Click on the current world's map and Connor will be teleported to that spot. Click somewhere high on the side of a mountain, though, and Connor could fall to his death! (This only works in the land you are in - all others go away.))
  10. To get gold use (give SilverCoins #). From: H R
  11. debug (crasshes game)
  12. Lookup
  13. Bump (makes Connor move a little bit forward and through walls)

    Give (allows you to give Connor stuff that he hasn't gotten yet, provided you know the programmer's name of the object. Some of them are pretty weird because they were made early in the design. For example to give Connor more money you would type "give silvercoins 100" which would then give him 100 gold pieces (they originally were going to be silver). Other things you can give Connor are heath items (mushroom, sacredwater, crystal, elixeroflife), magic items (clarity, invisible, invulnerable, strength), and rocks (rock). You can also give him armor (leathergloves, chainmailsuit), weapons (flamesword, icecrossbow), and inventory items (mold, ashes, goodskull). There are too many items to post here, but I'm sure someone will figure them all out. (Rocks don't seem to work?))

  14. Mask
  15. console
  16. Run
  17. alias
  18. god (of course there has to be a god command, it makes Connor practically invincible. He can still die from the River of Death and from falling great distances - mainly because it would have been a pain to program - so don't be too confident. However, monster's can't hurt you! (Didn't try this - what's the purpose of playing?))
  19. ungod (back to normal)
  20. ruth (easter egg)
  21. jeffo
  22. leslie
  23. welch-piel (easter egg)
  24. adam
  25. oscar (easter egg)
  26. rocket (easter egg)
  27. testCast (longpause, dunno what it does)
  28. ;The following are "Set" variables, and can be used in the script file for permanent usage set KQConner::reincarnate true/false (if you die, you come back to life instantly) set allowAltEnter true/false (useful!!!)
  29. ;The following are for use with the "give" alias, to basically give yourself items...remember, some of these are not things Connor should really have, so giving them to yourself may crash the game. ;Weapons---Completely raped from the item file. IT IS CASE SENSITIVE in alot of cases, so just use caps where they apply and you won't go wrong.

    Easter Eggs From:

    These four can only be done in Daventry. After getting into the console,

  165. type "oscar" to see a programmer's bassett hound floating around Connor.
  166. type "ruth" to see the wedding picture float around Connor.
  167. type "welch-piel" to change the painting in Connor's house to show someone's wife.
  168. type "rocket" to show some rockets floating around Connor.

    Risque Easter Eggs

  169. Click the ice sceptor on the sylph (in dod) to hear some off-color outtakes by Connor.
  170. In the Frozen Region, when you first get there, draw your weapon and talk to the first ice nymph outside. Make sure you only talk to each nymph once. He'll put away his weapon after that. You must talk to the nymphs with your weapon drawn. Redraw your weapon and talk to ice nymph on the right inside. Redraw your weapon again and talk to the ice nymph on the left. Then click three times on the left wall on the sqaure that is 'down creation, over completion', or down 3 over 7, and hear some innuendo between Connor and Freesa. MiriyaP
  171. From: I think your walkthroughs and cheats are great! I went to this one place on the web and this one man said for kings quest 8: "look for the apple on the tree". What does that tell me? The easter egg was, "drink some reveal potion, and then go to the tree on the left of sarah's house.Click on it , and connor will be naked with a miniture mask on his d***. Anyway I think your articles are great, and I hope to see more. PS. you can use that easter egg if you want.

  1. From: Alex Allen When I open the cheat console, what exactly do I type to get god mode? Your page is confusing. Please tell me which of these I have to type: give god, give god 1, and god. ANS: Did you try them all? What did you find out?
  2. From: Lansburg Sent: Wednesday, December 15, 1999 2:00 PM Subject: king quest cheats 8: teleport(give full map +press on map and that is wear you teleport ANS: We got this one already. See number 9 under cheat codes. Thanks anyway!
  3. From: Michael St. John, Sent: Wednesday, December 29, 1999 3:01 AM, Subject: King's Quest 8: I love your web site, and I recently visited it for "King's Quest 8: The Mask Of Eternity." I had a question, and I was wondering if you could answer it. You list the cheat code to create any item in the game, and you have a list of all the items. However, I can't figure out which item is the "Ice Queen's Scepter." Can you please tell me the code to create this item? Sincerely,Michael
