Starship Troopers [cheats updated]
Gain More Experience|
To have your troopers gain more experience after each battle, go to
the "stta\units" directory and open the st_db_attr file in notepad. Go to line
26. It should start out as:
26 1 0 0 15 0 0 1...
Change this line to
26 1 0 0 200 0 0 1...
You can try other values besides 200 to tweak the experience growth of your
Tip: Ammunition is a scarce commodity. However, using the right bullet for the
job helps. Use the small arms for the in-your-face bug work. Save the missiles,
grenades, and nukes for the bug holes and Tankers.
Tip: Heavy nerve gas is a gutsy way to ruin a bug hole's day. Make sure that you
have a squad covering the poor soul hoping to drop the gas down the hole.
Tip: Ambush Arachnids whenever possible. Use three squads to form a U. Run a
couple of Mobile Infantry under the bug's nose and lead it back to your trap.
Rinse and repeat for the large bug swarms.
Just go to your Starship Trooper directory and then the mission directory. Go to
each mission dir and look for interface.txt files, open the file, change the
different values in equipment from 3 to 12 or 18. *Note: make sure once you
change the value in one file, the rest of the files must be changed as well, if
not the next game cannot be played.
Increase Storage Depot Ammo
Open the st_db_attr file in notepad and you will see on line 29, 6 positions back, there is 10000. Add another zero to that figure.
Early Weapon Availability
Just go to Starship Troopers directory and then the mission directory. Go to the
mission directory and look for the interface.txt files, open the file and you
should see a whole bunch of items in the "Excluded" area, just delete all these
lines. Do this for each interface.txt file and you'll get all the weapons and all
the tech soldiers (MIST, psychic) before they would have been given in the actual
After making it to the last level you cant get through cause the Royal Warrior Bugs dont let you? Heres a cheat that will get the job done.
Enter the Missions folder that you can find in the main directory. Look for another folder named c3m7 . Open it and you will see a score of text file in a sequential order from bh_1_1 to bh_b6_3 . These are instructions for the bug holes and they decide which bug will come out of a specific bug hole. All of these files contain instructions for the Royal Warrior Bug apparent by the line bug_type = royalwarrior 100 .
Edit the line to bug_type = warrior 100 and you wont face these scary bugs anymore. Once this is taken care of, you can handle anything since most of your troops are in 1st Class Marauder suits armed with double chaincannons. Make sure all the lines in the files (bh_1_1 to bh_b6_3 ) are edited. I recommend that you copy the folder c3m7 somewhere else before tampering with it.
