View Full Version : DRIV3R (PC) Cheats Menu

In DRIV3R for the PC, there is a menu labeled "Cheats" under "Options", but it is greyed out.
I understand that beating the game on the consoles enabled this menu (correct?), but this doesn't appear to be the case for the PC.
Initially, I was able to activate the menu by manually editing front.MEC in a hex-editor, but after a little more rooting around I also found a way to enable the cheats by hex-editing the ProfileData file for my DRIV3R savegame, so it's obviously something that's supposed to be saved to your profile.
In case anyone's curious, you open the ProfileData file in a hex editor and change the hexadecimal values at the following locations from 00 to 01 to "Unlock" that cheat's toggle in the Cheats menu:
1A4 - Unlocks the menu itself
196 - All Missions
198 - All weapons
19A - Unlimited Ammo
19C - Invincibility (In Take-A-Ride)
19E - Immunity
1A2 - All Vehicles

However, I was wondering if there was another, more conventional way of activating the cheats.
I can find no mention anywhere of cheat codes for the PC version of DRIV3R to activate this menu.
Now that I know how to activate the menu items, it doesn't really matter, but my curiosity is piqued.

in your message it says to change the 00 to 01, but at the locations given there is no 00. can you help me? or could you just send the edited front.GUI file to me via e-mail?

I guess it's a good thing I subscribed to the topic...I was darned surprised to see the reply notification over a year after my original post.

However, I'm not sure why you wouldn't be seeing the keys in the expected locations. Out of curiosity - what IS there? Are there 01s or something else? I might have to spend a little time re-familiarizing myself with the file to give you more general instructions.

After re-reading your message, are you editing the front.MEC file or the ProfileData file? The one you want is ProfileData.

I've tried them both but cannot find these numbers...


BTW:
just out of curiosity... which hex editor did you use while modifying these number?

You don't edit front.MEC, you edit the "ProfileData" file for your Driv3r savegame.
And you edit it in a hex editor.
Each of those addresses (locations in the file) will have 00 or a 01. More than likely, they'll all have 00. Changing them all to 01 will fix it.

You need to go on another website and download the save file then open the file and change all the oo to 01 but ive not got there yet.
WARNING:IT TAKES A VERY LONG TIME!!

dude i know where you are coming from cant find any of the 19s (19a,19c,19e) but can find 1A2 if this is the case chance the values of 1A2 from 00 to 01 i used xv132 hex editor for this (click on first 00 in 1A2 line then press insert untill u see the box in bottom left hand corner change from insert to overwrite then type in 01, it should swap to next box overwrite all 00 in that line ONLY CHANGE 00's)
got the hang of it? now do the same for 17C and 1C8 and bingo it should be all unlocked

can you email the file?

ReverendTed

The file will be your individual savegame and profile data, so if I sent you mine it would be my settings and so forth. (Again, I'm surprised at how long after the original post that this thread is still getting replies.)

Thanks for this. really helpful. just a shame that it requires hex editors rather than cheat codes

I can't find anything you mention.
No 109, no 1A4, no nothing.
Just a bunch of random numbers and letters. :P

ReverendTed

The file will appear to be lots of random characters, that's normal. The 109 and 1A4 refer to addresses (basically "locations") inside the file.
These addresses are only meaningful when you're using a Hex Editor (not Notepad or Wordpad).
At those addresses, between all the other gobbledy****, you'll usually see "00", which will need to be changed to "01".
I know it's kind of complicated, and it's sad because it never should have been broken in the first place.

Ah, thanks, I found it!

All cheats on + infinite mass (+ always pressing burnout instead of accelerate) = aaaw yea.

I know this thread is really old, but would anyone have a Player Profile that is already set up?
I have tried many times to get this to work, but cannot. Thanks.

Hi. I know this post is from a really long time ago, but I've just started playing driv3r again. When I look in my files, I cannot find 'ProfileData' anywhere on my computer. Any idea why this may be the case and what I can do?
