Below is the first Campaign cheat code:
- Click on Total Annihilation's Single Player icon.
When the Single Player Game page appears type
DRDEATH (it is not case sensitive). This will
cause a Cavedog Entertainment bone to appear
between the Load Game and Previous Menu icons on
the screen. Clicking on the bone will take players
to a special Play Any Game screen where they can
play any Total Annihilation mission, even if
they have not earned their way to that level yet.
Use the Write_HPI file to extract the totala1.hpi files. This tells you the files use.But I don't know how to
get it to work.
- Edit TDF files to edit the weapons, smudge, etc.
- Edit the FBI files to edit units.
- Edit the GUI files to edit the cursor, buttons, etc.
- Edit the BOS files to edit ingame explosions.
- Open the PCX (pictures) files to edit the icon pics.
- Open the WAV (sound) files to edit the sounds.
- 3DO - unknown
- COB - unknown
- FNT - unknown
- GAF - unknown
- To edit the new unit = Flakker, extract the file and change file that was extracted to the name 'AFlakker.ufo' to
'AFlakker.hpi'. Then use write_HPI on it. Then after the files are extracted change the name back to 'AFlakker.ufo'. I
don't know how to get my edited files to work. RGRDS Roland

Here is a cheat and some hints for Total Annihilation. By Geoffrey Giesemann
If you are defeated in battle you may still move on to the next battle. The next battle should be selectable in the battles
menu. Just click and start.
The last battles of the game are relatively easy if you are Arm. Just build tons of mines, tons of
collectors/reactors/geo-powerplants, add about 3 of every type of unit construction building. Set them all on en masse
and move the 'new unit location' to somewhere else (it gets crowded). Attack the doomsday weapons with merls.
Merls can fire outside D.day range and the weapon does not need to be visible. Because you can see all wreckages
you can attack with some Merls and an advanced radar. You also hit the 200 max unit limit.
Your units also get stuck around the battlefield because of wreckages. This is really crippling in narrow sections. Have
a few construction aircraft hovering around to help out in the clean up.

HI. I tried the codes you gave to TOTAL ANNIHILATION but some don't seem to work, especially +ATM which is supposed to increase Metal and Energy by 1000. I might have missed out something, though the other codes work (ex. +RADAR). Please update. Thanks.

for total annihilation, the +ATM cheat DOES NOT WORK. +radar does, but I can't get the +atm to work.

I don't know what people are talking about, +atm works fine for me. It really helps. At the bottom your page on total annihilation cheats, people had said the +atm cheat didn't work. But it gave me 1000 metal and energy.

- From: tpI have a question about editing the hpi files. Use the Write_HPI file to extract the totala1.hpi files. This tells you the files use. Where do i find the write_hpi file, or is thier another way the files can be extracted. Terry
- From: Mike Cabrelli HI I WAS WONDERING IF YOU KNEW WHERE I COULD GET AN EDITOR/TRAINER THAT WOULD HELP ME ON THE SINGLE PLAYER MISSIONS ON TOTAL ANNIHILATION
