Control Lion Head Studios logo

When the game loads and the Lion Head Studios logo appears, you can control it when all the balls tip out. To quit, press [Esc].

All costumes/sets/decades unlocked in Sandbox mode

Note: This procedure involves editing a registry value; do not attempt this if you are not familiar with working with your system registry, as a mistake can cause serious problems with Windows. Start Regedit and use the "Registry/Export Registry File" menu option to create a backup copy of your original registry. Search for "Allow any Decade" with Regedit. Double click the "Allow any Decade" entry and change the value data to "1". Start Sandbox mode to have access to all decades and just about all of the sets, costumes, props, etc.

All sandbox rewards

Note: This procedure involves editing a game file; create a backup copy of the file before proceeding. Use a text editor to edit the "unlocking.ini" file in the "c:\documents and settings\[username]\application data\lionhead studios\the movies" directory. Note: This file is not created by the game until you get the first reward in Story mode. Replace the current content of that file with:

    highest_decade = 2100

Gain experience quickly

This procedure requires that you create a file and place it in your "\gameinstall\data" directory. If at any time you wish to revert the game back to its original state, simply delete the file. All of the original scripts can be found inside the "MISC0000.pak" file. Create a file called "experience.ini" containing the following information, and place it in the "\gameinstall\data" folder. This will make your already hired people gain experience in large chunks, instead of in tiny increments, and will also make the people you hire start with maximum experience.

Better ground

This procedure requires that you create a file and place it in your "\gameinstall\data" directory. If at any time you wish to revert the game back to its original state, simply delete the file. All of the original scripts can be found inside the "MISC0000.pak" file. Create a file called "ground.ini" containing the following information, and place it in the "\gameinstall\data" folder. This will make any ground type pretty and boost your lot prestige, and will also make people run "concrete speed" on any ground type.

Less stress

This procedure requires that you create a file and place it in your "\gameinstall\data" directory. If at any time you wish to revert the game back to its original state, simply delete the file. All of the original scripts can be found inside the "MISC0000.pak" file. Create a file called "mood.ini" containing the following information, and place it in the "\gameinstall\data" folder. This will make people not get as stressed out over things as they normally would. They may still become stressed, but with this script it is easier to manage them back into "happy" stress. It also decreases the time it takes for them to de-stress at bars and such by a substantial amount.

Increase relationships faster

This procedure requires that you create a file and place it in your "\gameinstall\data" directory. If at any time you wish to revert the game back to its original state, simply delete the file. All of the original scripts can be found inside the "MISC0000.pak" file. Create a file called "social.ini" containing the following information, and place it in the "\gameinstall\data" folder. This script will make social engagements between people increase their relationship bar by much larger increments, instead of the normally tiny increments, thereby building good relationships in much less time.
