Not here, but Exile games occasionally had bugs that require using cheats to move around obstacles. The worst was having your money go negative.

Cheats can cause unusual side effects.

I am unaware of any cheats for Geneforge, probably because I do not seek them out.

In-game cheats in Geneforge..are usually buff, gold, and exp..the exp given is based on your current level..and gets lower as you get higher..the gold cheat appeared on G1 and G2(?), disappeared in G3, and reappeared in G4, as I remember..gold given also decreases..now you're aware of it..

For the sake of it..I only use cheats when testing things out..

(spoilers)

I only use:"iloveserviles" and "ihateserviles" so I could get all the treasures and training and power and wealth and canisters...

Edit-I also use script editing but Im not sure is it in category of cheating.

The money cheat isn't in G2 or G3 at all and only appears in early versions of G1.

Its true.For example if you in G4 in Quimma-Uss use cheat to kill the unbound you wont be able to exit labaratories cause they are not supposed to be killed.

That taught me not to use cheats.

Cheats break the game way too fast, and are obviously not necessary. Just lower the difficulty level if you're having trouble, or you could get into a lot more (like LaKiRa@ said).

I learned this truth the hard way in G4. My character was no longer challenged by anything, and I never used cheats again.

Dikiyoba uses cheats to do exploratory type things (like to check various endings) but not at other times.

If I ever use cheats it's for entertainment not for progress. I do however do minimal script editing.

Aye..I use it just to measure how much stats I can put into creations and what is the more optimum way of progressing..

Basically..quicksaving and loading is cheating itself..

For the most part, I only cheat to heal myself or replenish my essence or spell energy. I know there are cheats to reset your canister count, but I no longer use them, as I can't remember them (I'm also too lazy to look them up).

I've done that a few times with G1-G3. Interesting, huh?

Their are different versions of the game, and each new version has less (usually) bugs.

Usually the only version available to download is the most recent. However, if you really want an older version, I would suggest browsing other websites that have download service for Geneforge.
