                      and weapons have their graphics changed to a Christmas

Impossible difficulty setting:
Press [Shift] + G at the difficulty selection screen.

Suicide difficulty setting:
Enable the "Impossible difficulty setting" code, then press [Shift] + ]
at the difficulty selection screen.

Wild detail mode:
Run the Tyrian 2000 setup program. Highlight the "Game Detail" option 
and press W.

Christmas mode:
Open an MS-DOS window and change the current directory to the Tyrian 2000
game directory. Type file0001 yesxmas at the DOS prompt, then press Y when
prompted. This will change various items, weapons, ships, and sounds to a 
Christmas theme. 
Note: Christmas mode is date-sensitive and will only be remain active until
December 31, 1999.

More ships:
Press [Tab] + 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, or 0 during game play to get different
ships. You can edit these ships by going to "Start/Programs/Tyrian2000", then
select "Ship edit". Choose "Ships", then edit them as desired. Activate the ship
by pressing [Tab] and whatever number ship you are doing for player one, and 
[Caps Lock] and whatever number ship you are doing for player two. In a game,
get this ship by pressing [Tab] and the corresponding number.

Lord Of The Game mode:
After enabling the impossible and suicide skill levels, hold [Scroll Lock] + L
+ O + R + D. 

Glitch: Incomplete Bosses:
Destroy some Bosses before they completely enter the screen (for example, with
Level 11 Laser, on the Tyrian Ep. 1 Boss). Their back half will appear without
the rest of the ship. 

Glitch: Gravity orb treasure:
On some of the asteroid levels, a "gravity orb" (small red and green orb that 
push you sideways) may slide in from the side. Fly directly over it , and it 
will act like a treasure and disappear, with a sound as if you just collected
a treasure. 

Hidden subgames:
Tyrian has too many hidden subgames to mention. Luckily, finishing each one 
gives you the password for the second. To access the first subgame (which is 
basically the same game, only with a "mutated" ship), go to the main menu and
type: TECHNO
