A. General Hacking

===============================================================================

First, go into the hacking section of the game and select a file that you'd 
want to hack.

NOTE: After using a .EXE file, it'll stay on the left side of the keyboard.  
And you can use those executable files just by clicking them.  There is really
no reason to type everything out just to watch an image or enter a cheat.

Press any key to continue...

type 'HELP DIR' -> DIR A: -> A:\SYSTEM
                             A:\TOOLS
                             A:\TEXT

A:\SYSTEM 
1) REBOOT.EXE     ( reboots the system.  Erase all used commands.  
                    Erase entered cheats? )
2) HELP.EXE       ( used to list description of files, eg. HELP DIR )
3) CLS.EXE        ( clear Screen )
4) LOGIN.EXE      ( used for going into Drive B:\ )
5) DIR.EXE        ( list everything in a directory, eg. DIR A: )
6) EXIT.EXE       ( exit the hacking )
7) READ.EXE       ( to read a .TXT file, eg. READ A:\TEXT\NOTE2.TXT )
8) ECHO.EXE       ( prints out a line, eg. 'ECHO ABC' will prints out
                    'ABC', also has ECHO ON/OFF )

A:\TOOLS
1) VIBRATION.EXE   ( vibration test. [ 1 - 100 ], eg. Vibration 100 )
2) BEEP.EXE        ( beep test.  [ 1 - 8 ], eg. Beep 5 )
3) CHEAT.EXE       ( to enter Cheats,  eg. CHEAT 13D2C77F )

NOTE: ALL .exe FILES IN A:\ CAN BE FROM THE BEGINNING USED WITHOUT UNLOCKING.

A:\TEXT
1) NOTE2.TXT      ( password for B:\TOOLS\VIRTUAL.EXE )
2) MANUAL1.TXT    ( information on the OHS-T1 Personal Computer - ie. junk )
3) MANUAL2.TXT    ( more info on the computer security - ie. more junk ) 
4) PASSWORD.TXT

AFTER THIS POINT, MOSTLY EVERYTHING NEEDS TO BE UNLOCKED IN SEQUENCE
Also, IMAGE AND MOVIE FILES CAN ONLY BE VIEWED AFTER OPENING B:\TOOLS

type 'LOGIN' to execute LOGIN.EXE
Enter Password:  GUEST
( Can also login as as "FREEMIND" to hear a message from Morpheus )

You'll now be granted access to Drive B:\

DIR B: ->  B:\ID
           B:\GUNS
           B:\FMV
           B:\MAPS
           B:\CARS
           B:\TOOLS

Note that images and movies are unlocked as you play through the game.

B:\ID      ( list of images that can be viewed using VIEW.EXE )
B:\GUNS    ( same as above )
B:\FMV     ( list of .fmv that can be viewed using PLAY.EXE )
B:\MAPS    ( list of maps )
B:\CARS    ( list of car images )

As for B:\TOOLS, you need a 5 digit access code that is binary encrypted.

Binary ->  Can only be either 0 or 1

This number is actually random.  First type in ' 00000 ' and it'll tell you
how many numbers are correct, and how many of them are in the correct places.
Try it out a few times and you'll eventually get it.

B:\TOOLS
1) VIEW.EXE       ( to view image files  eg. VIEW B:\GUNS\380.IMG )
2) VIRTUAL.EXE    ( to access your virtual drive )
3) TRACEKILL.EXE  ( To reset if you accidentally inputted 'BLUE' in the puzzle
                    for VIRTUAL.EXE )
4) DROP.EXE       ( to drop/put a weapon into the matrix e.g.  DROP JXTRR10 )
5) PLAY.EXE       ( used to play .FMV files eg  PLAY B:\FMV\0.FMV )
6) DECODE.EXE     ( read 'decoding' section in 'Miscellaenous Info' )

For VIRTUAL.EXE to open your virtual drive, you need a password.
You can get this password using READ A:\TEXT\NOTE2.TXT to get the password:
'FROZENFISH'

Now, open VIRTUAL.EXE using the password 'FROZENFISH' and you'll be given a
puzzle to solve:
1) BLACK    ( reset and you'll have to try again )
2) BLUE     ( you chose the 'BLUE' pill and time is running out, now quickly
              type 'TRACEKILL' to avoid being traced ! )
3) RED      ( the solution you'd want )

IF YOU DON'T TYPE 'TRACEKILL' RIGHT AFTER HAVING 'BLUE', YOUR SYSTEM WILL BE 
REBOOTED. ( Can anybody make a small ASCII image for the symbol 'RED'? )

After entering the correct solution 'RED', you'll now be granted access to
the virtual drive.

DIR V:\ -> V:\TOOLS
        -> V:\ROOT

V:\ TOOLS
1) ROOTSEARCH.EXE ( executing this will grant you an ADMIN password )
2) DIAL.EXE ( connect to a particular number, eg. DIAL 0012135550142 )

V:\ROOT
1) MAIL.EXE             ( to read your mail )
2) PORTKEY.EXE          ( used to connect to Trinity, read below )

Now, type 'MAIL' and you'll be asked for an ADMIN password.
This is the password you get by executing ROOTSEARCH.EXE, the password is 
'THISISNOTREAL'.

Type in 'Y' when you're asked if you want to read your mails, and you'll be
given the following:

DIAL:
001 - 949 - 555 - 0112 ( does not connect )
001 - 714 - 555 - 0187 ( does not connect )
001 - 213 - 555 - 0142 ( for a message from Morpheus )
001 - 310 - 555 - 0111 ( for a message from Trinity )

Now, just dial it to Trinity, you'll the given the code '942'.
Use this number, and execute PORTKEY.EXE by typing 'PORTKEY 942'

You'll get a chance to chat with Trinity, enjoy the moment! ^_^
( Just type anything when she ask you questions. )

You'll then have CRACK.EXE downloaded to your V:\ROOT directory.
Execute the file by typing 'CRACK 8RAM'.

You'll then be given a random code.  Mine here is AGHR22M5.
At this point, you can then access your RAM drive.

RAM: -> RAM:\TRINITY
        RAM:\PROG
        RAM:\BIO

RAM:\ TRINITY
1) TRAINING.EXE         ( used to execute the .DSK in RAM:\PROG )
2) HANDSHAKE.EXE        ( execute to connect to Spark )
3) READBIO              ( to read the .bio in RAM:\BIO )

RAM:\ PROG
1) SWORD.DSK

RAM:\ BIO
This directory only contains the character bio of the character you're using
in .BIO format.

********************

OPTIONAL:

If you want sword play in the game, you should can type TRAINING.  Then you'll
be given an example TRAINING RAM:\PROG\SWORD.DSK

Type that in there, and you character can now use the sword for disarm moves
and barehanded throws.

You can turn off the sword by resetting the game.

SWORD.DSK is only available if you load 'hacking' with a finished game save.
However, there is a trick to this, you can finish the game with any character,
use that file to hack and activate the sword.  You should then load the game
with any other file, and the sword can still be used, even if it's a file at
the first level.  ( Thanks to sixstring for this info)

NOTE:  Since the SWORD.DSK file is the only training file I know, it's very
possible to have other .DSK in there that we do not know about.  Please email
me if you know anything else.

********************

Type in 'HANDSHAKE' to connect to Spark.
After a hilarious conversation, you'll be given access to the LOGOS' system.

DIR LOGOS:\ -> LOGOS:\SPARK
               LOGOS:\ART

LOGOS:\ SPARK
1) EMP.EXE   ( triggers the EMP shockwave on board of LOGOS )

LOGOS:\ ART  ( contains a bunch of image files )

To finish off the hacking, type in 'EMP.EXE'.  You'll hear a message from Neo.
And you'll be given multiplayer mode.  Your hacking session is now officially 
finished.  Have fun with the rest of the game!  ^_^

B. MISCELLANEOUS INFO.

===============================================================================

*****************************************************
Cheats  ( eg. type in 'CHEAT 0034AFFF' )
*****************************************************

Quite a number of cheat codes given out there do not work, so here's a list
that I've actually tested myself: ( re-enter the cheat to deactivate it )

IMPORTANT: All these cheats are not assoicated to one particular file.  
If you enter a cheat in the hacking session for one file, it'll still be
activated for whichever file you load.

0034AFFF - All Weapons Unlocked
1DDF2556 - Infinite Ammo
69E5D9E4 - Infinite Focus
7F4DF451 - Infinite Health
13D2C77F - Unlock Bonus Test Level ( Spark's Construct from 'load game' )
FFFFFFF1 - Invisibility
D5C55D1E - Multiplayer Fighting
7867F443 - Faster Logos flight speed

*****************************************************
Spark's Training Construct
*****************************************************

At the beginning, only 1 red door can be opened.  Go in there and to the far 
wall with two buttons, where only one is accessible at this point.
Pressing the button will start the first mini-game.

Mini-Games: 

Objectives:
1) Prevent enemies from approaching.

NOTE: The weapons will respawn, and you can stand on the table, make use of
      them. (the M16 is your very best friend)

2) Shoot the platform so the enemy will fall before he reaches either side.
   (unlocked by getting a score over 20 in mini-game #1)

3) Eliminate 21 enemies before you die.
   (unlocked by getting a score over 20 in mini-game #1)

4) Punch/kick/throw the enemies off the platform.
   (unlocked by eliminating 21 enemies in mini-game #3)

I have yet to understand the 'Swats vs. Prisoners' mini-game in room #2.

NOTE:  The 4th mini-game is actually a lot more fun than it looks.  Try jump-
       kicking your opponent near the edge.  If they're not close to the edge,
       kick them down anyway, then run up and kick them while they're on the
       ground.  Do not ever lock-on or focus, as they take away your precious
       time.  It's possible to kick over 80 enemies off within the time limit.

*****************************************************
DECODING ( eg. type in 'DECODE IADYSFNYC' )
*****************************************************

DECODE.EXE is basically an executable used to translate the content/hints
given on the stratgedy guide and the website of the game.  They're not very
useful by themselves, but if put together, they can provide hints in solving
some of the puzzles, as well as unlocking new things in the hacking session.
(Thanks to bluejeans)

Try these out:

IADYSFNYC
DCAYOE7VDSZZCKO
EABXMSXAMA7EUNGD
