Alien: Isolation

Cheat Codes:
------------
Submitted by: David K.

Disable introduction sequence:
------------------------------
Enter the "\Steam\SteamApps\common\Alien Isolation\DATA\UI\MOVIES" folder and move the
following files to a temporary folder: 

"AMD_IDENT.USM" 
"CA_IDENT.USM" 
"FOX_IDENT.USM" 

-=Change field of view=-
Use a text editor to edit the "ENGINE_SETTINGS.XML" file in the directory: 
"\Steam\SteamApps\common\Alien Isolation\DATA". 

Locate the following lines: 

 < setting name=”Field Of View”>
 < quality name=”47? float=”47.0? precedence=”7?>
 < quality name=”50? float=”50.0? precedence=”6?>
 < quality name=”55? float=”55.0? precedence=”5?>
 < quality name=”60? float=”60.0? precedence=”4?>
 < quality name=”65? float=”65.0? precedence=”3?>
 < quality name=”70? float=”70.0? precedence=”2?>
 < quality name=”75? float=”75.0? precedence=”1?>
 < /setting>
 
Increase the 75.0 value, which is the default setting, to any number up to 100.


Blade Runner reference:
-----------------------
Enter Sevastopol station in mission 2. After checking in with the android, explore the 
station to find origami foil unicorns in various locations. This is a reference to another
Ridley Scott film, Bladerunner, where Harrison Ford finds one at the end of the movie.


General Tips:
-------------
* Sound is huge in this game. Make sure you have the TV cranked up or headphones on so 
  you can listen to the Alien, just as it listens for you.
* Never run. Ever. The Alien hears louder footsteps, so running is almost always suicide.
* Avoid fighting other enemies. The Alien isn't the only threat in the game, but stealth
  is your best approach even against other humans and androids.
* Watch out for the Alien drool – that means it's in a vent above you. Walking under 
  the Alien guarantees death.
* The flamethrower and molotov are two of the only items/weapons that work against the
  Alien. Burning the Alien can often save you from instant death, as it runs away from
  the fire.
* Alien: Isolation is very much a trial-and-error kind of game. The Alien will often 
  find you, so it's about adjusting on the fly and doing your best to move quietly at
  any given moment. Don't feel too bad if you die a lot in the process.
* Craft items often. You don't want to be holding onto materials for a long time, 
  otherwise it's just a waste.
* Two simple words: save often.


Higher shadow map resolutions:
------------------------------
Use a text editor to edit the "ENGINE_SETTINGS.XML" file in the  directory.
"\Steam\SteamApps\common\Alien Isolation\DATA". Locate the following lines.

 < Setting name="ShadowMapResolution">
 < !-- resolution in pixels. -->
 < Quality name="512" int="512" precedence="1"/>
 < Quality name="1024" int="1024" precedence="2"/>
 < Quality name="1536" int="1536" precedence="3"/>
 < Quality name="2048" int="2048" precedence="4">
 < DefaultRequirements>
 < WindowsExperienceIndex type="GPU" value="7.6"/>
 < /DefaultRequirements>
 < /Quality>
 < /Setting>
 
...and change them to: 

 < Setting name="ShadowMapResolution">
 < !-- resolution in pixels. -->
 < Quality name="2K" int="2048" precedence="1"/>
 < Quality name="4K" int="4096" precedence="2"/>
 < Quality name="8K" int="8192" precedence="3"/>
 < Quality name="16K" int="16384" precedence="4">
 < DefaultRequirements>
 < WindowsExperienceIndex type="GPU" value="7.6"/>
 < /DefaultRequirements>
 < /Quality>
 < /Setting>
 

Increased draw distance:
------------------------
Use a text editor to edit the "ENGINE_SETTINGS.XML" file in the directory.
"\Steam\SteamApps\common\Alien Isolation\DATA". Locate the following lines.

 < Setting name="Level of Detail">
 < Quality name="Ultra" float="1.0" precedence="4"/>
 < Quality name="High" float="0.9" precedence="3"/>
 < Quality name="Medium" float="0.75" precedence="2"/>
 < Quality name="Low" float="0.6" precedence="1"/>
 < /Setting>
 
...and change them to: 

 < Setting name="Level of Detail">
 < Quality name="Ultra" float="2.0" precedence="5"/>
 < Quality name="Very High" float="1.0" precedence="4"/>
 < Quality name="High" float="0.9" precedence="3"/>
 < Quality name="Medium" float="0.75" precedence="2"/>
 < Quality name="Low" float="0.6" precedence="1"/>
 < /Setting>


Easy "My Turn Now" achievement:
-------------------------------
At the start of Mission 4: Seegson Communications, as you go through the long hallway,
you will see a friendly android (robot that looks like a human). Attack him a couple of
times with the maintenance jack from behind. This will put the android in combat mode,
and he will counter all frontal attacks. Run away and hide until the android goes back
to his post. Then, sneak up to him again, and perform some strikes from behind. Keep 
repeating this until he is dead to get the "My Turn Now" achievement.


Easy "One Shot" achievement or trophy:
--------------------------------------
Play under the Novice difficulty setting. Quickly open the menu before you dying in 
order to continue. If you actually end up dying, do not load the current saved game. 
Instead, use the second option to load the previous save. Although this will resume 
the game further back, it prevents the death from counting.
