Unseen Objects

Given its topsy-turvy development cycle and sheer number of unused graphics, it should be no surprise there's unused code lurking around inside the game.

A big cheers to Mr_Beacon00 (信标先生) for working out a way to see these! His code replaces the crate near the start of Mission 1 with whatever object ID is assigned. To see these for yourself, it requires the usage of Cheat Engine 6.83 and this .CT address table. It's optimised for use with WinKawaks 1.65.

To use:

If there are numbers under the Values column, success!
If not, double-click the Address of the cheats and confirm that the .EXE file under Pointer matches the .EXE at the top of Cheat Engine's window. If the Address is "WinKawaks.EXE+473300" but the window says "WinKawaks 1.65.EXE", you'll have to add that "1.65" to it!

This code will modify the object ID of the crate at the start of Mission 1, but only when it is off-screen, before it has 'loaded' into the level; no change will occur while the object is on-screen.
"Obj" is the primary object ID, while "Sub ID A", "B", etc., are modifiers that vary from object to object; some will change enemy behaviour, some determine what objects crates and prisoners are holding, movement speed, direction, and other properties.
For best results, make a save state before the crate appears so you can quickly change values, and set all Sub IDs to 0.

Another big shout-out to Ivo for investigating and compiling the ID list at the bottom of the page!

ID: 80

A variant of the kamikaze bikers seen in Mission 5; these ones have a sidecar whose passenger throws grenades high in the air as they drive past.

ID: 160

An elk. When Sub ID A is set to 0, it looks left. At any other value, it looks at the screen. It's otherwise a background detail that cannot be interacted with.

ID: 171

An unused gatling gun that once belonged to the Mission 1 boss! It can be mounted like any other turret by jumping onto it, transforming the player into a white soldier! It fires three slow bullets automatically once mounted, and again every five seconds. It cannot be fired manually, and no points are awarded for killing enemies with it.

ID: 193

An unused rocket turret that once belonged to the Mission 1 boss. Like ID 171, you turn into a white soldier when riding it, but this one is fully under the player's control - it can turn left or right and fire an infinite number of missiles on command. The missiles only detonate when hitting enemies, otherwise they just phase through the ground.
The direction the missiles fire doesn't line up with where the turret is facing - in fact, it only seems to fire correctly when you don't change its default direction!

If Tarma mounts either of these turrets, the soldier's palette will be yellow/brown.

ID: 180

A little otter. A background detail that can't be interacted with.

ID: 181

A little flopping fish. A background detail that can't be interacted with.

ID: 199

A running lady from Mission 5, in an otherwise unseen red palette. All villagers have palettes in teal, blue and red.

ID: 209 ~ 219

This group of IDs runs through all the villager children - crying, running, shirtless, and bug catcher, in teal, blue and red palettes. Only the crying and bug catcher kids are seen in-game during the ending, and only in blue and red palettes respectively.

ID: 222 ~ 226

These IDs feature totally unused NPCs intended for Mission 5 or the ending sequence. The first comes in three colours, while the latter two only in red. They have no animation and are totally static.

ID: 277

Beige platforms; 276 is flat, while 277 is a diagonal block. Likely used for preliminary environment building. The flat platform appears in 9 Stage and can be moved around, but I can't find that function for these ones.

ID: 292

It's the Metal Slug! Changing the Sub ID B will change how its vulcan behaves, locking it in one direction and only allowed to turn 45 directions away from it. Value 0 is up, 1 is left, 2 is down, and 3 will make it behave like normal; there's no option to lock it facing right.

ID: 318

The Metal Slug's ejected turret. Normally the turret flies into the air and explodes when the Slug is destroyed, but this one has a downward arc and has collision with terrain. The game freezes when this object touches the ground though, but if you're lucky you may see a frame or two of its unused animation.

The IDs below are listed in decimal. Cheers to Ivo for cataloguing and describing these.
