I found something in Hunting Unlimited 2010 you might be interested in.

#1 Post by EibeAxxt » 12 Nov 2020 17:41

Alright bois, found something interesting to show you! This will be a long one, so be prepared. The game that i inspected was of course: Hunting Unlimited 2010. The game by itself sounds boring, but its one of my childhood games AND also one of the better if not the best hunting games out there. With this in mind, i had to mess with the game. The first thing to note is that the same company that made this game or SCS Software, also made a Truck Simulator game. The important thing is that BOTH games use a engine called Prism3D. If you search: "prism3d console commands" you will see there are commands for Truck Simulator. Some commands are same on Hunting Unlimited 2010, but most of them aren't. So what commands are in Hunting?
Image
These are most of the commands you can modify in the console. There are other ones, and i will be talking about some important ones. To find this commands, you need to open the base.scs file with WinRAR or 7zip, where inside of the file are basically all the models, scripts, exc. The file name of the commands are config.cfg.
But 2 commands aren't noted here which i say are interesting.

Code: Select all

map
and

Code: Select all

cheat
Map is used to load maps you normally play the game. The thing is, there are maps you SHOULDN'T play, where developers used to experiment them or used somewhere else! The maps im talking about are these.
Image
Let me explain what map is and how to access them. To access any of these 4 maps (or all of them) you need to enable the console. To enable it, you need to open config.cfg and insert these 2 lines:

Code: Select all

uset g_console 1
and

Code: Select all

uset g_developer 1
Uset g_console is already there in the config file, you just need to switch it to "1". After changing the code, open hunting unlmited and you should be able to open the console by pressing the key `. you can hit TAB to see the codes you can use. We need map, so just type map and then name of the map! For example, the map "ad" is a map that appears only in the main menu and can't be accessed. BUT, by typing:

Code: Select all

map ad
You can load the map and play it!
This is how the main menu map looks like: Image
And this is how is looks like when accessed. Image
You have no cursor, there are no sounds expect the water you hear everywhere and any map you access, you can only quit by typing in the console "quit". Now lets see some interesting ones!

Code: Select all

map trophy_room
Image
This place appears every time you finish a mission. It basically show you where you shot the animal, how big, tall it is and so on. Here is how it looks like when you normally finish a mission:
Image
There aren't any other maps called trophy_room, but yea, there are other variations.

Code: Select all

map ai_test
Oh boy. This is a really nice one. This is a place developers experimented with the ai (duh). The items seem to float, so when you shoot them, they fall. its really interesting how its made, so here is a picture of this map:
Image
I also noticed that you can actually enable the HUD! this is cool because normally when you hit F5, you immediately finish the mission. This isn't a mission, so this happens when you hit F5: Image
You probably noticed there is a bomb in the background. You are not wrong. That's a bomb. Image
The bomb isn't found anywhere else in the game so this is the only place that features this bomb. Kinda weird, but its there.
The next command where i need YOUR help is this one:

Code: Select all

cheat
This is where i was confused when i saw it. If you type just cheat, it does nothing. Typing cheat 1, also does nothing. I tried everything, it doesn't do anything. Until i looked at the game files.

Code: Select all

df_hlp06_txt02:"<br offset=20><align hstyle=center><color value=@@rgb_sbtn@@>Cheats<color value=@@rgb_nbtn@@></align><br offset=5>@@game_name@@ does have some cheats, but we will leave that up to you to find them! Have fun!"
I realised at the start of the code it says: hlp
This means its in the help section of the game. And i was indeed right!
Image
So in the end, i will need your help. If anyone can help me find the cheats for this game, i would be the happiest person in the world! There are no forum posts about this, no information about ANYTHING i found in this game.
I also found some MORE things that are very weird. Like for example, in the Documents/Hunting Unlimited 2010/saves folder, you can edit your save file. whats even better is that there is a line that says:

Code: Select all

def challenges {
	last_mission:"11"
	last_tier:"0"
So, we can edit the code to say last_tier 9 and skip the 8 tiers you have to do normally, right? I realised at that moment i was very wrong.
Image
THIS is what happens if you change it to a tier you can't access. The tier number is 0, name is "KILL ALL THOSE ANIMALZ", there is only 1 mission named "Challenge" where you have a score of 999. You can't play the map and as soon as you switch it to a tier you can access, this screen is gone.

Thank you for this community, because there is nowhere else i could share my research with you all!

So i did some MORE investigating in the game.

The bomb model i mentioned on the post is actually in the previous game! It was used as a gamemode model, where you would defend your house against birds who would drop bombs(???) You shoot the birds adn if you don't kill them in time, they will drop the exact same bombs like in 2010.

Also. There is a file in the game of Hunting Unlimited 3 which i don't know the name off (cause i uninstalled it), but i think it was called axe.bmp.

There is a part of the axe, and a chopped off finger with blood next to it. Why? Don't ask me.

SCS, you need to speak up ;)

:D I beta tested almost all the games except hu1 and hu2 and know they put things in the games called eggs. We had a blast beta testing these and deer hunter. Ita was a foreign student whom though he didn't beta test he found and put in many of the other items or found some of the odd eggs into the other games as hu game patches from hu4 up thru hu2010. He did use some of the older games to add things. I've played all the games and made and debugged many of the Missions in the games. The bomb you mentioned was in hu1 or hu2 in their Missions section. there used to be a forum that we had tournaments on. But believe they shut it down due to lack of interest over these last few years. Enjoy the games ..spent many hours enjoying hunting tournaments over the years and building missions. Made many friends across the World. Friends here too from the SCS guys.

That's really amazing! I hope you and your friends are doing well. I just wanted to ask you a question or two about the easter eggs. Do you know what the easter eggs were? And how do you activate them? If you don't remember, it's totally fine :D

Stay safe!
