Ultimate Cheat v2.01 by Ted Shutes is excellent.

By far the best cheat for Dink out there, it allows you to do a slew of things. You can increase your stats and gold, make Dink teleport, save anywhere you want, make him "fly," unlock a locked screen, and more. My personal favorite is the option to increase the speed at which Dink walks, as I've always thought it was a little too slow. The only negative thing I encountered is that if I use the "kill all enemies on screen" function when there are a lot of enemies on that screen, I crash. I suspect that's more of a problem with my machine, though, and not this cheat.

It's very user-friendly and easy to install, as well. You merely place the "key-67.d" file in your Dink Smallwood story directory, and presto. I do highly suggest renaming your key-##.d file, though. The 67 is default, meaning to bring up the cheat menu in-game, you press the "c" key on your keyboard. Since certain d-mods use that key (Fiat comes to mind), you're going to want to change it. I renamed mine to "key-192.d", so that it comes up when I press the "~" key.

It really is the ultimate cheat.

The ultimate cheat is actually one of the best tools to help debug DMODs when beta testing. You can see a number of things going on when using this file, like number of scripts running etc.

I used this file to isolate a couple of bugs in PQ with scripts not killing themselves properly and thus masses of instances being created (this is bad).

I've never used it to cheat as I have my own standard "cheat" function which restores life, adds some gold, unlocks screens, and raises or lowers stats as I find this enough to use to get around most buggy DMODs.

As this download includes the original ultimate cheat (ver 2.01) and this new author debug one (ver 3.1) you have an option of which one to use.

Of course it is possible to actually write a DMOD that negates the use of this kind of cheat, but then even if you do that someone will crack the anti-cheat and come up with a cheat that will work for the specific DMOD.

Purpose: This file lets you cheat in D-mods.

Installation: You have to copy the button6.d to the story folder. If the D-mod already has such a file, you can use the cheat.d file, that has an extra feature, namely kill all enemies by equipping a weapon. You then have to attach this script to a sprite by using the editor.

Use: Press the M button.

Good: The file is easy to install. You have a lot of possibilities to choose from. You can raise attack, defense, magic, lifemax, restore lifemax, kill all enemies on screen (when also using cheat.d), unlock the screen, add or remove gold, make Dink walk over low hardness, and change speed.
You can also warp to a different screen or a different spot on the same screen. When you want to warp to a location on the same screen, you will see a yellow sparkle: just move it to where ever you want to go and press enter. When you want to warp to a different screen, you can change the number of the screen. You can also see the current vision number of the screen.

Not so good: The readme.txt says that you have to use the cheat.d file if the D-mod already has the other file, but if you do that, you also have to copy the button6.d to the story folder, otherwise the cheat will not work. When only using cheat.d, and when pressing M, you will see Dink saying that he has not got a map yet. Using the editor can be a bit difficult for those who do not know how to use it and just want to play a D-mod.

Overall: A very good cheat.

Fit for: Everybody who wants to cheat.

Purpose: This file lets you not only cheat, but gives also real useful information.

Installation: Copy the key-67.d or key-67.c file in the main dink story folder or in the story folder of the D-mod you want to use cheat in.

Use: Press C while playing and a popup appears with several options.

Good: Easy to install. You have a lot of possibilities. You can raise attack, defense, magic, lifemax, restore lifemax, kill all enemies on screen, unlock the screen, add or remove gold, make Dink walk over low hardness, save at any time, and change speed to fast or very fast.
You can also warp to a different screen or a different spot on the same screen. When you want to warp to a location on the same screen, you will see a yellow sparkle: just move it to where ever you want to go and press enter. When you want to warp to a different screen, you can change the number of the screen.
You can also set beacons so you can store a location in the game and later return to that beacon. The xy co-ordinates where Dink is standing will be the co-ordinates for the beacon.
You can also change the keys you are using by renaming the key-67.c or key-67.d file
The ‘show information screen’ is handy, since it gives you the number of the current screen, the x and y co-ordinates, the current vision, magic, weapons and speed, and the number of scripts used. That could also be useful when you are testing your own D-mod.

Not so good: The game crashed when using the ‘kill all enemies’ option (both on the fireball and the large explosion). Sometimes the game freezes after you return to windows and then back to the game.

Overall: Indeed ultimate cheat. And a lot of information too. A shame about those bugs.

Fit for: If you do not use the options that causes a game crash, this is a good download.

Cheating is a must. I'm not saying you can't play a game without cheating, it's just funfunfun. But, you'd get sick of it if you don't do anything else. It's quite interesting to see how a game changes when u use cheats. I like this one best, it's easy to use, you can do almost everything you want. Pretty nice. (exceptional is the term)

well...read the description- the only thing u can say is WoW...

basically the usual cheat-gold modification,possible stat changes, warps, beacons,destroy all enemies on screen, but it's easy to understand and over all very good, my cousin downloaded it and loved it, so he recommended it to me and he was right its a very good cheat, one of the best if not The best,I used it on Fiat, I changed the key etc. you could use it on dink original but thats easy as A$$ anyway overall: very good, easy to understand,couple new options,installation doesn't take long, very good A+, there was only 1 bug I saw and that was my comp crashed when I used the "destroy all enemies on screen" cheat, but I think thats because I used it when there was god knows how many pillbugs around me that aren't worth killing so I used the cheat, I think just way to many things it killed at the same time, but still, -0.2 for that small bug but it's very good I recommend it to anyone and everyone A+...

Not too bad, but I still like version 3.1 better.

WHAT IT DOES:
-------------------------------------------------------
You can get more or less gold, replenish your health, save anywhere, use up to 3 beacons,increase our stats and your health total, injure the enemies on the screen with a medium or large fireball (medium fireballs burn trees on the screen), you can warp to a differant screen or spot on the currant screen and view information about the screen you're in.

In the end, it is very user-friendly and really worth downloading.

This is plain excellence. A trainer in it's full glory, and yes, it is the ultimate cheat utility. Well, almost. Anyway, here is what you can do:

Add 50 Atttack, Defense, and Magic and take it away.
Choose three different speeds
Increase Life by 50
Get info on certain thing
Warp to different screens, or a different part of it
Kill all enemies
Fly(Walk over rocks and water)
Save anywhere
And other stuff

The only con was that the stats couldn't be modified on their own, but still, who needs that?

This is one of the must-download non-game files. Basically it does not have any new cheat options compared to the original Ultimate Cheat, but it does fix several bugs over the original version and also adds a few more options.

The stop-entire-game function in most of the choice menus is nice, but it might getting a little annoying or buggy if the other in-game script having stop-entire-game function, too.

It would be even nicer if Dink's stat can be changed even more flexible.

The .c file is awesome for dmod authors who want to learn some nice tricks about scripting.

This cheat is the best cheat menu out for dink. It has a menu type interface that allows you to select what you would like to do with dink, instead of a default stat boost which most cheats do. It also has a default stat boosrt option built in if you want that to0.

This is great. A must for any d-mod developer, and a strong "should" for any player. (especially when playing some of the buggier d-mod) Lots of nice improvements over the original. One more that isn't on the list: it comes as a .c file (as well as .d). so now you can see how it works or edit it to suit your needs.

I recomend renaming it Key-123.c (F12) or some other more obscure key since some d-mods (Fiat) use the C key already.

I give this a 9.9 not because it's necessarily perfect, but because it's better than the original which has that rating and because you shouldn't think think twice about getting it. (A rating higher than that would be pretty meaningless anyway)
