Other mistake: On the thrill rides tab, find the ride: Top Spin. In the description of it, they spell heels wrong. They spell it heals.
Other mistake: Even though premium cards are supposed to be unreloadable without using certain item cards, if a premium card is put second or third in a sleight, it can be reloaded normally.
Bug: If you drop paintbrushes out of your inventory, they float and are able to carry you on top of them, which you can do over and over to get really high on top of something.
Continuity mistake: During the Kronos campaign as Chaos, Eliphas the Inheritor can "ascend" to his final Demonic form. However, despite the in-game unit being granted a different, more appropriate voice for his new body, Eliphas still uses his old one for the various bits of communication that go on between him and the other faction Generals.
Continuity mistake: Indiana first meets Wu Han in this game, just a couple of weeks before the events of the Temple of Doom film. However, when he dies in that movie, he says they have been on many adventures together.
Other mistake: In the Repton 3 and Repton 4 portions of the game, if you are killed by a spirit or fungus while taking a diamond, the game doesn't give you the 5 points for that diamond. On the Repton 3 screens this means you cannot complete the level.
Factual error: Organization members Xigbar, Xaldin, and Lexaeus' real names are misprinted in the English version of the game as Bleig (Braig, Xigbar), Dilin (Dilan, Xaldin), and Eleus (Eleaus, Lexaeus).
Bug: Go into 2 player mode, and let player 2 pull out the Katana. If player 2 turns on CJ and kills him with that sword in such a way that his head is cut off, he will respawn in 1 player mode with no head. Just a neck stub with blood constantly spurting out. You can walk around and continue on as headless CJ until the game is reset. All of CJ's spoken lines are cut off after just a couple sounds as well once this happens.
Continuity mistake: When Bernard talks to Green Tentacle after releasing him, he asks about the bowling ball in the room. Green Tentacle says that Purple Tentacle brought it in after he grew arms. In the final part of the game, the player has to get the bowling ball and use it. However, this part is set BEFORE Purple Tentacle grows arms.
Bug: When magnetic ceilings are found, and you fly towards the ceiling, while in midair, pause and take off the iron boots. You will be able to walk without iron boots.
Bug: In the few instances where you can hit Marshal Jackson with the lightning cheat, he remains upright even after being depleted of his 2,500 life points. (I've tried that stunt in El Paso).
Other mistake: The main character somehow finds Richard Aiken in a corridor that is locked with the armour key. The key is at the other end of the mansion so how did he get into the corridor without breaking the door down?
Character mistake: During the exchange level (first level) if you jump in the truck and the guards don't notice you, you'll eventually get to the gate. You'll hear the guy driving the truck say that there are 20 cases of wine. But if you count all the cases there are only 19.
Continuity mistake: When you are romancing a governor's daughter, and the city she lives in is captured by another nation, a new governor with his daughter is installed. This new girl looks completely different from your old romance (and her father is a completely different person), but she nonetheless remembers you. You are still at the same stage in your relationship, even if the girl has never met you before. You can even (for instance) rescue a blonde Dutch woman from her captors, and end up returning with a black-haired Spanish girl.
Bug: After getting all 120 stars and using the cannon to get to the top of the castle, if you walk around enough at the highest point you will fall through the roof and into a hidden dimension of the front wall. Going through the door itself will not let you escape, so you must jump through the wall to reach the outside.
Other mistake: When you are at the X-games and doing the street contest, at the first spot there is a cameraman that floats about three feet up in the air next to the halfpipe.
Other mistake: Go to the Day-Care Man. When he asks you if you want him to care a Pokemon for you, answer YES, but in the Pokemon list, press B to cancel. He'll say "All right then, Come again." However, the "Come" shouldn't be capitalized, it should be "come". This happens because this is a shared text, so when you answer NO to his question, he'll say "Come again", and that's why it is capitalized for this text. However, it is still a mistake. This was made due to a similar text error in Red/Blue, but this mistake was created.
Bug: If you stand in front of a bug or a fish and press start right after swinging a bottle at it, you can put another item in the bottle's place and turn it into another bottle. When this happens, the erased item cannot be recovered, and the new bottle will retain the limitations of the original item (for example, turning the Claim Check into a bottle will still be unable to be used by Young Link.).
Bug: On the road between Talewok or Gwernia and Erromon, there is an enemy rat that can cause the game to crash. When you come to the area with three signposts near a big lake, you're close to where he is. If you found this area earlier, it's the same spot where that hilarious cinema scene with the guy in the forest who was afraid of monsters occurred. Follow that path around the bend, through some pine trees, and you should come across a Giant Rat at the top of a hill. Try to avoid this enemy! Whenever I engage him, he causes the game to crash. I'm not kidding! The screen goes blank, and some text shows up and it actually says something like, "System Crash", and then some other text that makes no sense to me. My suggestion is to save near the signposts, then try to sneak past that enemy. If you engage him and nothing happens, don't worry about it. But if your system crashes, there IS another way to get to Erromon. You'll have to look for an opening in the wall along the road (you'll pass through some pine trees.) You should pass a treasure chest along the way. You'll emerge out onto a high plateau with another treasure chest. There's like a round, stony area in the middle of the plateau. You'll have to run down off of it and find the road. Continue taking the road West to Erromon.
