Ok – fine. I admit it. I’m a Lego and Star Wars geek. So it’s no surprise I love this game. That’s why, when I heard there was a cheat to make a Santa Claus figure(http://www.rebelscum.com/story/front/LEGO_Star_Wars_II_Easter_Christmas_Egg_102422.asp), I rushed to try it out.
Something about the cheat bugged me though. After you input the TYH319 beard cheat, you activate it by turning on Disguise 3. The old Groucho glasses are then Disguise 1. But what about Disguise 2? There has to be a 2, right? But how to find it?
Maybe, if I can find the TYH319 code in a file somewhere, the Disguise 2 cheat will be somewhere near it. As luck would have it, I found TYH319 with the first thing I tried – I ran strings.exe on LegoStarWarsII.exe. And right near it was CL4U5H, the code for the Claus hat and clothes. Smack in between them was NBP398. Was this the magic string I was looking for?
Yep. Try it out. After entering it, go to the Extras menu and you’ll find Disguise 2 is available. It’s your very own shiny red nose!
DISCLAIMER: I only tried this on the PC. I have no idea if it works on the consoles.
BTW – if anyone knows how to take a screenshot in this game (maybe of Vader or Yoda with the red nose) I’d be happy to post it. (A note to the comedians out there – I’m looking for a way in game to take a screenshot. The print screen button rarely works in games. And yes – I did try it.)
