Do you have 100% in Aliens Versus Predator? Have you played through each of the levels a bunch of times? Have you unlocked all of the cheat options? Want some more Single-Player content? Well, this guide will show you how with Console Commands and Debug mode.
If you are like most people, you like messing around in single-player games. A great way to do this is console commands, whether it be invincibility, or exploding enemies. Limitless options are at your disposal with Single-Player console commands.

Aliens versus Predator Classic has unlockable cheat options within the levels themselves. But some of them are pointless, and you may play some only once or twice. The best way to have fun in Single-Player is Debug Mode.

This guide will show you how to use Console Commands and Debug Mode in Single-Player.
Enabling Debug Mode
First things first, you have to enable Debug mode. Not every command needs to be done in Debug mode (Example: Version), the ones that are 'cheaty' (Example: God mode) must be done in Debug. Open up your Steam Library, locate Aliens Versus Predator Classic 2000, Right-Click Aliens Versus Predator Classic 2000,Click on Properties, Click the 'Set launch Options' button, and type '-debug'. Alright, you have enabled debug mode, easy, right?

After launching up Aliens Versus Predator Classic 2000, you should notice the Multiplayer menu is missing. This means debug has been successfully enabled.
Debug Command Notes
Now we get to the meat and bones of this guide and debug mode, the commands.

To open up the console, press your chat button (Defaults: T and Y)

A few things to note while entering commands:
-The command MUST be written in CAPS, otherwise they will not work.
-You must delete SAY first, then type in the command you want and press Enter. When you want to close the console, re-type SAY and press Enter.
-AI spawning only works if the species you are trying to spawn is already in the level, if there aren't any aliens in a level, you can't spawn aliens. The same goes for predators or marines. However, there is a program you can download to circumvent this. Read Olde's guide on that here.
Debug Mode Commands
These are commands that will only work in debug mode.

GOD - Enables and disables invincibility

GIVEALLWEAPONS - Gives you all weapons (primarily for Marine; for Pred its usage is to be able to use the pistol and disc in Waterfall and Area 52)

GIMME_CHARGE - Recharges the Predator's Field Charge

LIGHT - Spawns a light around you, everytime you use this command the light gets brighter.

MOTIONTRACKERSPEED # (# is a number between 0-16) - Changes motion tracker speed (marine)

MOTIONTRACKERVOLUME - Changes motion tracker volume (marine)

TIMESCALE # (where # is a number between 0.995-4) - Adjusts speed of game

WIREFRAMEMODE # (where # is a number between 0-3) - Toggles wire frame mode; the differences were much more apparent in Gold Edition, here there's basically only two modes.

LEANSCALE # (where # is a number between 0-10) - Adjusts amount of tilt when sidestepping

SKY_RED # (where # is a number between 0-255) - Adjusts red tint in sky

SKY_GREEN # (where # is a number between 0-255) - Adjusts green tint in sky

SKY_BLUE # (where # is a number between 0-255) - Adjusts blue tint in sky

SHOWFPS - Displays frame rate

Disabling Debug Mode
To disable debug mode, once again right click on Aliens versus Predator Classic 2000 in your steam library. Then click on properties, then set launch options. Delete "-debug".
A question you may be asking
Your Question: "Is this cheating?! Can I get banned for this?! Why are you teaching people how to cheat?!"

My Response: "No, no. Debug Mode only works in Single-Player, so don't worry. If you are modding or cheating in single-player you aren't going to get into trouble. Obviously, I don't condone cheating or hacking in Multi-Player, it ruins the game for everyone else. I have ran into many hackers in my days and I hate it as much as the next guy. Hacking in Multi-Player isn't okay, and this guide isn't showing you how to hack Multi-Player. Debug mode only affects Single-Player, don't worry."

RQ which levels have predators when you play as an alien? I'm on Earthbound, typed the command to spawn a predator, yet nothing happen, not even the message that pops up when you try spawning in a NPC type that's not in the level (for example, the message you get when you try spawning another alien on the alien missions.) is it bugged or can you only spawn Predators on the bonus alien levels?

Is there a possible way to play as Alien in skirmish mode, and if so, is it possible to play as the different variants?

Can anyone help with scrolling down in the main menu? i can not use mouse or any keys to select anything. The only two keys that work are Enter and Escape.

Just want to play a game from my child hood.
Thanks in advance for any comment with helpful advice
