Before you can use cheat codes, you must either use the cheat code "cheat on" or press Shift+Backspace. You should get a "Cheats enabled" message when you do this.
To use a cheat code, press Enter, type the code, and press Enter again.
Cheats marked with "✗" can crash the game. Try to avoid using them.

Drive mode is an experimental feature in which you can control a unit using the arrow keys. Since it is experimental, it requires cheat mode, and is not available in multiplayer games.
To enter drive mode, once you're in cheat mode, select the unit you want to drive, press Spacebar and then press Shift+D.
These instructions only apply to 2.3 and higher. For older versions, see wiki:cheats.
