All Cheat Codes

Common Commands:

  • ping = Returns “Pong!”
  • hello = Returns “Hey!”
  • clear = Clears the console window of entries
  • history = Returns previously entered text in the form of an array (sorted form most recent to least recent)
  • reload = Reloads scene (Highly recommended not to use during level, currently softlocks game)
  • handsfree = Automatically activates notes (Also sets “clean_game” to false, resulting in no progress, money, score, etc.)
  • nofail = missing notes does not take your hearts away (Does NOT effect “clean_game” stat)
  • hidehud = Toggles all hud element visibility
  • fail = Forces FAIL event
  • end = Skips to end of level (If “handsfree” was used, the command will go back to level select, otherwise it goes to successful level end screen and subsequent cutscene)
  • clearsaveonly = Resets save data (Shop purchases, money, level progress)
  • clearalldata = Resets all game data (Save Data and Options)
  • resetsteam = Resets Steam Stats (No noticeable effect currently)
  • opendata = Opens user data directory (The directory your save file and settings are located in)
  • logs = Opens beat_banger.log file
  • givemoney [int] = Adds [int] to your current money amount (e.g. “givemoney 1500” returns “Gave player $1500” and adds $1500 to total money)
  • setstartingbeat [float] = Used before entering a level, offsets starting beat (and subsequent beats) by [float] seconds
  • calculatebeat = Honestly, not really sure how to use this command
  • rewind -[int] = Reloads level at [int] note. Note: “-” is required before [int] otherwise command leads to softlock
  • setnotespeed [float] = Sets speed at which notes appear from off screen [Default value is 350, I don’t really recommend changing this, some values can lead to a softlock
  • saveload = Saves game, then loads game
  • freecandy = Unlocks all levels (Must use on level select screen [Unlock state gets cleared after leaving screen, to permanently unlock all levels, complete last level and previous levels will be unlocked])
