               -------------General Hacking Help-------------

Hacking is pretty straightforward, you continue moving from drive to drive,
using the newly accessed commands to drive you deeper down the rabbit hole.
If you decide to have a go at it by yourself, please note that any time you
type in a command, it appears in the command column at the left, so just
move over there and click on it instead of typing it out each time. There
are even many commands that allow the seconday action to pop up over there
as well (the DIR command for example will pop up the contents of any prev-
iously listed drive or folder)

Below is a list of most of the commands (these are the .EXE files) found 
while hacking, and what they do. The prenthesis after each contains the 
drive you will find it on.

REBOOT (A) - restarts the system if you get stuck, start all over
HELP (A) - if you type another command after HELP, it tells you what
           the second command does (kind of like this guide)
CLS (A) - clears the screen
LOGIN (A) - allows you do get into the network
DIR (A) - shows all of the files or folders in a specific drive or folder
EXIT (A) - leave hacking
READ (A) - used to view .TXT files
ECHO (A) - repeats whatever you type after ECHO (useless?)
VIBRATION (A) - vibrates the controller
BEEP(A) - makes a series of beeps
CHEAT(A) - enter cheat codes into the current save game file you are using
VIEW (B) - used to look at images, maps, art, etc.
VIRTUAL (B) - used to access the virtual network drive
TRACEKILL (B) - will terminate a trace program
DROP (B) - will stash weapons into your saved game file if you know the
           appropriate codes
PLAY (B) - used to view the FMV files
DECODE (B) - can decode items found in 'the real world'
ROOTSEARCH (V) - designed to find the password to the ROOT folder
DIAL (V) - calling phone numbers
MAIL (V) - access an email account
PORTKEY(V) - opens a PORT with an appropriate code
TRAINING (RAM) - can access training scenarios
HANDSHAKE (RAM) - reaches out to vessels patroling in 'the real world'
READBIO (RAM) - can read BIOs of characters from the game
EMP (LOGOS) - fires an Electro Magnetic Pulse (a weapon for Sentinels)
-----
* ENCODE - this allows you to code a word and use it in DECODE later
           this command is only available in PAL (mostly European) 
           versions of the game

                -------------------Story-------------------

Obviously, if you bought this game you are familiar with the story of the
Matrix. However, if you have yet to see 'Final Flight of the Osiris' then
you should know that the Osiris was a hover ship (like Morpheus' from the
original movie) that goes to the surface of the Eart and finds that an army
of Sentinels are massing around a huge digging machine. The machine is 
positioned above Zion, so the last sanctuary of humans is in serious
jeopardy. The Osiris is detected, so they decide to jack into the Matrix
to try and get the message out of what they witnessed. Just before their
ship explodes, they manage to get a package in the mail.

Technically, you don't need to know any of this to play through the hacking
section, but if you're like me, you will want to step over to the actual
game once and awhile (if nothing else, to boost the amount of unlocked files
you will find in the hacking section)

                ----------------Walkthrough----------------

Below is a copy of exactly what will appear on your TV screen. I took the 
shortest route possible to unlock all of the drives and folders. In a later
version, I might include some of the other things you can play with while
hacking, but for now, this will just get everything available to you. There
are some areas where you will find five astericks (*****). This indicates
that I have included something that is not directly on your screen (such as
a voice talking to you). Finally, note the five astericks in the section
for unlocking the B drive's tools with a binary code. This is to indicate
that the code will be different every time you play. You will go through
a few attempts before finding the one you need. Okay, let's turn that
computer on!

Hi... Sparks here... I can't chat for long, I am monitoring

What's up?
NOTHING
Hold on, I see you accessing my disk drive.
You're getting good!
Thanks for that file you just sent me... What is it?
WHAT FILE
Hold on, can't chat now, that file you gave me is corrupting
the screen...

OH SHIT! -It was a Trojan. It's infecting our onboard computers...
It's trying to find a broadcast output. Trying to shut it down...
It's rung the bell, I'm scanning movement. -Sentinels inbound.
The virus is spreading. It's locking down my controls... I've
lost control of our EMP, my monitors are down... If you're
reading this, run EMP.EXE on the LOGOS drive. You have the only
port open to my onboard computer...

A:\> EMP
He he he... I was just kidding! Holy crap, no need to take me
seriously! You would have left me without a pot to piss in if
the EMP had really fired.
Oops, I forgot.
I have unlocked a present for you.
Think of it as a gift, for doing so well.
It's in the loading section.
Enjoy! :)
I also tried to record a message from Neo for you. Got most of
it...

I agree with him about the skills bit.
If you find any white rabbits, I'll do the cooking... :P
Time we both got back to the mission.
You're done here, Bye.

                ------------------Cheats--------------------

I have seen MANY cheats out on the web, and half of them don't work. What's
listed here does work, and furthermore, you'll know they work because the
program itself will say so - explicitly. If you type in the all weapons
code, it will say "All Weapons unlocked." To activate any of these, use
CHEAT and the code, such as CHEAT 0034AFFF.

0034AFFF - All Weapons Unlocked 
FFFFFFF1 - Stop Enemies From seeing You  
D5C55D1E - Multiplayer Fighting  
7867F443 - Faster Logos Flight Speed 
13D2C77F - Unlock Bonus Test Level 
7F4DF451 - Infinite Health 
69E5D9E4 - Infinite Focus 
1DDF2556 - Infinite Ammo 

You should be aware that enabling these cheats without finishing the game
first could prevent you from doing so. In some cases, if the enemy can't
see you, they won't open doors to come get you, and you can't proceed.
Also, some of the cheats forces a grenade to drop as soon as a level starts. 
If you are with a secondary character and they get killed, your game is over.
It has also become a problem for many gamers technically. That is, using 
cheats seems to cause the game to freeze MUCH more frequently.

Two cheats have caused more problems than I have ever seen before. So, I will
try to explain what is going on with the Multiplayer code and the Bonus level.
Once you unlock the Multiplayer, you MUST have 2 Dualshock2 controllers 
plugged in (A PS1 Dualshock Analog controller won't cut it). Load one of your
saved game files. When the screen comes up where you get to choose a level,
press to the left (and keep pressing) until you get to the multiplayer section.

As for the Bonus level, once you load it, you must leave the hacking section
and load a saved game. Press to the right (to the left goes back toward the 
start of the game) and there is the bonus level. Once inside, enter the red
door and go past the tables to the far wall. Press the red button to begin the
sequences.

Speaking of the websites, if you sign up for the email announcements, you
will be sent this message:
>You've chosen to Enter The Matrix(TM).  Jack In.  Load Up. 
>Go to http://www.infoyouaskedfor.com/r.cgi?=m4196_7427188 
>Enter:
>Username: Niobe
>Password: sQuiD
>And Hold On.
They are both case sensitive, so watch as you enter it in. You will be 
dissapointed to find that all you get is the code listed above (13D2C77F).

                ------------Hexadecimal Codes--------------

The official Matrix website has a unique link to Enter the Matrix. It is the
hexadecimal code station. Using the cheat codes from Enter the Matrix, as well
as other codes yet to be found, you can convert them to a string of binary
codes and input them into the website. Valid codes will bring up "goodies,"
but at the time of this version's release, many of the linking web pages were
not ready (they come up as "Data not yet compiled"). Hopefuly they will be
ready in the near future, so I reccomend going back periodically.

To find the hexidecimal code station, you have to log into 
http://www.thematrix.com at high bandwidth. When you reach the opening page,
there is a menu bar at the top that looks like a lot of television screens
(ala the hovercraft command stations). To the far right of this menu bar is
a plain gray bar with an orange button below it. Click on the orange button.
A small panel will open up with the options of "help" or "low bandwidth." Just
to the right of the "low bandwidth" option is a small gray square - click on
it, and it should turn green. A lagre access panel will drop down to cover the
menu bar (it will say "ZION83N6" on the left side). Click to open it and
reveal a binary code input. There are several you might put in here, but the
one we want is:

01101111

This will open the hexadecimal code panel. The "rules" on how it works are
clearly posted there. Basically, you can turn codes from the game into a binary
form and you will get access to some goodie. Below is a list of known working
codes (as of 6.15.2003) and what they lead to. The ones marked as "Data not
yet compiled" are thought to eventually lead to something - so check back.

           ---------------The DECODE Conundrum------------------

Another big section asked about is the DECODE program. If you can find the
codes (said to be located at the websites - see PASSWORD.TXT - and in the 
official game guide), you can enter them with the DECODE program. I've tried
a few that I've found, and they are pretty simplistic. They translate to say
such obvious things as "SPARKS" and "VIRTUAL DRIVE" so I don't see the point.

However, Unamuno decided he wouldn't let that rest, so he took it upon himself
to do a little research. Below is an excerpt of the email he sent me.
"After failing to uncover the underlying encryption formula, I appealed
to some of the people at Bradygames, who published the Official Strategy Guide
for the game.  Christian Sumner, the Project Editor for the ETM Strategy Guide,
sent me the following table of encrypted terms and translations:

You will notice that the vast majority of these cannot be translated
using the DECODE command.  Some of them I’m not even sure what the
English phrase pertains to.  In addition, I have come to believe that
the information necessary to uncover the underlying encryption formula
was housed at the unfinished websites, www.danielinstitute.com or
www.omegahardwaresolutions.com.  It appears this aspect to the game was
a casualty of the rush to development.

* Encrypted words that can DECODE (translate)"

In addition, I have posted the copies of the emails Unamuno
(a.k.a. Sean) sent me. They are interesting in themselves.

Hey Sean, 

I was the project editor on the Enter the Matrix guide.  You recently wrote
in and expressed concern that "Warner Bros. and Shiny are no longer
operating certain websites (www.danielinstitute.com and
www.omegahardwaresolutions.com) essential to translating many of the
"encoded terms" found in the Strategy Guide." Let me assure you that the
websites are in no way essential for translating anything in the guide.	If
you work your way through the Hacking element of the game, you'll eventually
come upon a program (DECODE.EXE) that will allow you to translate any of
those codes that are in the guide. Other codes are scattered throughout the
guide that offer different things, but the ones that are seen as coded words
can all be taken care of with DECODE.EXE.

Thanks for writing in!  The input of fans like you helps us to constantly
improve our guides.
Sincerely,
Christian Sumner
Project Editor
BradyGames

Hey Sean!

Sorry about the delay, we just moved into a new building and things were hectic
for a week or so. Okay, I know that this isn't the perfect solution, but I'm
sure it's one that will help you out. Here's the full decrypted list from
Shiny. [as above]

There are a TON more codes in there than made it into the guide, but you'll
find everything you need in there.  As to a patch or a decoding program, I have
no idea.  Shiny may have plans for this in the future, but they haven't
revealed it to us as of yet.

I hope this helps!

Christian

I have yet to see any real benefit to the DECODE program myself, other than
feeding the obsessions of people like Unamuno. I will, however, gladly
entertain any other insights into this field of study.

                ------------------FAQs---------------------

Q: How do I play with Neo (or Trinity or Morpheus) in the game?
A: As far as I know, you can't. There are multiplayer games that make
   Trinity and Morpheus available, but I have yet to see how those
   characters can be transported into the main game.

Q: How can I just watch all of the movies without having to play through
   the game each time?
A: The PLAY.EXE command on the B: drive (\TOOLS) will let you play all of
   the files in the B:\FMV folder. If you hack into a finished save game
   file, they'll all be there. Heck hook the PS2 up to a VCR, and tape
   'em all in a row so you can impress stupid friends. It is important
   to note that Niobe and Ghost have different FMVs. To actually see all
   of them, you will have to complete the game with both characters, then
   hack into both completed save game files to see them all. No, they won't
   come up in the same saved game file.

Q: Can you access the TRAINING.EXE program in the RAM:\TRINITY folder?
A: Sure you can. However, you need .DSK files to use it. If you type in
   TRAINING all by itself, it will give you the help response and the 
   example SWORD.DSK. The SWORD can only be loaded into a completed save
   game file, but once you load it, the game "remembers" it for any game
   that you load to play. You can use the sword by pressing the action
   button near an opponent. Instead of disarming, you slice 'em up. Nifty.

Q: Are there any other TRAINING programs?
A: I would have to say yes, but unfortunately, I don't know them. I
   will be happy to add any working ones you may discover if you send
   them this way.

Q: What does the ECHO program do?
A: It bites ass is what it does. No, really, it does nothing but
   display what you typed after ECHO. Heck, amuse those stupid friends
   and say you're talking to Sparks or Trinity again - even Neo!

Q: How deep is the rabbit hole? OR How far can you really hack?
A: I've outlined above as far as you can go in hacking. I am amending
   the Asides section to include miscellaneous items that don't progress
   you, but are still kind of amusing. I know the hacking section is
   short (if you know what you're doing), but you didn't buy this game
   for the hacking section, did you?

Q: How do I deactivate a cheat if I don't want to use it anymore?
A: Two ways. One - turn the game off. Two - enter the code a second time.

Q: C'mon, give me something I can really decode!
A: Hey buddy, that isn't a question. But I like your style, so try:
   DCAYOE7VDSZZCKO

Q: What is Sparks talking about, "I have unlocked a present for you ...
   its in the loading section."?
A: Its the multiplayer mode, but you still have to have that second
   DualShock2. Look above in the CHEATS section for more info.

Q: How do I use the DROP.EXE command to get weapons?
A: Use the VIEW.EXE command to look at any of the maps in  the B:\MAPS
   folder. On the map itself, the wepons drop location is indicated in
   red. In the bottom right corner is a seven character code. Use that
   code along with the DROP command to create a weapons stash. Example:
   DROP B1AXXF2 to make a stash on the second floor (P.O. Boxes area) 
   of the post office. Note, the only maps available in that folder are
   the ones you've played through.

Q: Could you please explain what the heck is going on with that code to
   get into the B:\TOOLS?
A: The B:\TOOLS folder has a (random) binary encryption. That is, it will be
   five numbers, all of which is either a 1 or a 0. Try typing in five 0s and
   it will tell you how many are right - such as three correct. Now you know
   that there are three 0s. Since the numbers can only be 1s and 0s, then the
   other two must be 1s. Try just inputting different combos of those
   numbers, 11000, 01010, 01001, etc. You'll hit it pretty quickly

Q: When I get to (insert level title here), it says loading, then only goes
   to a black screen and nothing happens. What gives?
A: Technically this question doesn't concern the hacking section, but it is
   by far one of the most frequently asked questions I get. Here's my form 
   answer - This "game freeze" has become a common problem with many Enter 
   the Matrix players. The only real cure I've found is to back up one level
   and play through it again. When you return to the frozen level 95% of the
   time it will work that second time. It is related to using cheat codes, but
   we really don't know why it happens for sure.
