    Note: This cheat is available in the Japanese version of the game. This mode does not protect players from drowning or being killed by non-VT sources of damage (like tanks or traps).

Use the following buttons. The gear shifter should be in "N", the flip switches should be in the "Off" positions, and the radio tuner should be pointing in the 9 o'clock position (cardinal left). Both large joysticks and the hat switch (Sight Change) should be in the neutral position. Each of the following buttons should be pressed after the previous entry within ten seconds (preferably less). On the left console, shift the gear from R, N, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, then back to N (start gear at N). Then, flip the toggle switches from its "Off" position to "On", then back to "Off: in the following order: Filt Control System, Oxygen Supply System, Fuel Flow Rate, Buffer Material, VT Location Measurement. On the left console, move the Sight Change stick (the hat switch) Up, Down, Left, Right. Then from that position (Right), do one complete rotation. Afterwards, move the left joystick (the big stick) Left, Right, then let it center. On the center console, press each communication button in order from left to right, then press F1: Tank Detach, F.S.S., F2, Override, Mainpulator, F3, Nightscope, Line Colour Change, Washing, Extinguisher, Chaff, Main, Sub, Magazine Change. On the center console, spin the tuner dial clockwise from the 9 o'clock position until it goes through each click (i.e., click through 12 o'clock, 3 o'clock, 6 o'clock back to 9 o'clock position). On the right console, press Eject, Cockpit Hatch, Ignition, Start, Open/Close, Map Zoom, Mode Select, Submonitor Mode Select, Main HUD Zoom In (labeled as "In"), Main Hud Zoom Out (labeled as "Out"). On the right joystick (the big stick), press Main Weapon, Lock On, Subweapon (the trigger), and proceed to move the right joystick (starting from a neutral position) to Up, Down, Left, Right. Then, from the last position, rotate it one full circle. On the foot unit, press and release the Left Pedal (Dodge), Middle Pedal (Brake), then Right Pedal (Accelerate).
