In the Hacking engine, instead of using "GUEST", you can LOGIN as "FREEMIND" or "COWBOYCURTIS". The system asks if you would like to hear a message from Morpheus. If you accept, it will tell you to press a number from 1 to 5. There are five messages to hear.
To unlock the swordfight, follow these steps. Open the Hacking program from the main menu. Open a file that has the game completed. Note: You must have completed the game first in order for this cheat to work; and the game file you select at the Hacking menu must have the game completed. Type "LOGIN" and press Enter. Type "GUEST" and press Enter. Type "DIR", then a space. DIR should now appear in your command list. Access the B Drive through the "DIR" command. Select TOOLS from the B Drive. It will be locked and will ask you for an access code. The access code consists of 1s and 0s. You must guess the access code, as it is different each time. It is only five digits long. Once you have access to the TOOLS on the B Drive, type all the .EXE files (without the .EXE after them). For example, type "DECODE" then a space. DECODE will now appear in the command list. Repeat this for all other .EXE files in the TOOLS folder in the B Drive. Now, access VIRTUAL on your command list. Type in "FROZENFISH" as the password. An authentication test will start. An image of a Chinese symbol will appear, but it will be scrambled. The image is broken into 9 squares, and each square will have five different choices. You must change all the pieces so that a complete image appears. You have a limited amount of time to do this. Once you guess a correct image, the timer will stop and you will be taken back to the hacking screen. Look at the top of the screen. If it says "Solution: Blue", then the line will be traced and you will have to enter "TRACEKILL" and then press enter as fast as possible or all progress will be lost. Once you enter TRACEKILL, you will have to start back at accessing VIRTUAL on your command list. However, if it says "Solution: Red", then you will hear a message from Neo and get access to the V Drive. Open the V Drive and get all the commands from the TOOLS folder on your command list. Open the ROOTSEARCH program. Now, open the ROOT folder in the B Drive and get the two commands there on your command list. Enter the MAIL command and type "THISISNOTREAL" as the password and type "YES". You will get a list of phone numbers:
Select the DIAL command and dial "001949555010". You should get a message from Persephone. Next dial "0013105550111". You will get you a message from Trinity. She will give you a number. Select PORTKEY and enter the number. She will start to talk to you. Type "NO" to both questions and she will give you a program called CRACK on your command list. Open it, then type "8RAM". It should look like this: "CRACK 8RAM". You now have access to the RAM drive. Go to DIR on your command list and access the RAM drive. A list of folder names will appear. Open the TRINITY folder. Get the Training command on your DIR by typing "TRAINING" then a space. Go to your command list and select TRAINING. On you command list, a file called SWORD.DSK will come up. Select it. It has now uploaded the sword onto you character in the Matrix. Quit the hacking program and select "Save Progress". You can use the sword when you start that game file. It can be used in any stage, but will only a[[ear when fighting enemies by pressing [Punch] + [Kick]. You have to enter it again when you turn off the game. Go to the Hacking program, select that file again, select TRAINING, then SWORD.DSK.
Note: The game must be completed first as both Niobe and Ghost in order to unlock the swordfight.
If you complete the blue combination for the virtual command, it will hack your system. Once you complete the blue version, Neo says that if he can track you, so can they. A countdown from 1000 begins, and your command list freezes. The total countdown takes less than twenty seconds, and when it finishes, all of your commands are gone and you have to start again.
Once you unlock the sword, instead of pressing "[Punch]" + "[Kick]", press "[Action]" when approaching an enemy (as if you were going to disarm them). Instead of doing your disarm move, you will take out the sword and slice them up, killing them instantly.
After you have won the game on a file, complete the process of unlocking the sword. Once done, if you open another file you can use the sword in that file.
Multi-player mode character selections
When entering multi-player mode, you do not get to choose which character(s) you would like to fight as. Instead, the Matrix selects two pre-set opponents depending on which scenario/background you choose. Note: Much like Morpheus vs. Neo in The Matrix, multi-player mode is essentially a training ground to hone your standard skills. Focus is unavailable for use in the Multiplayer program. You must have two Dual Shock 2 controllers, as the original Dual Shock analog controller does not work. There is no background music to accompany these battles. Below is the list of backgrounds/environments that are used in the single player game itself, and the characters the CPU will select upon choosing a certain background:
The Pit - Player 1: Seraph, Player 2: Ballard
The Ballroom - Player 1: Niobe, Player 2: Ghost
The Bedroom - Player 1: Cujo, Player 2: Vlad
The Atrium - Player 1: Sewing Woman, Player 2: Janitor
The Alley - Player 1: Firebird Man, Player 2: Police Car Man
There are also two other levels which are famous areas from The Matrix film, which can only be found in multi-player mode:
The Dojo - Player 1: Niobe, Player 2: Trinity
The Subway - Player 1: Morpheus, Player 2: Agent Smith
Neo and Morpheus views
Note: The following will not unlock Neo and Morpheus as playable characters, regardless what the messages that appear state. In the Hacking mode, after unlocking the DECODE.EXE program, type "DECODE IAHSZWQLFZC". The following message will appear:
"Valid code found.
You will also hear Morpheus say "You have access." Morpheus and Neo are now viewable in the "view" section of Hacking mode, where you can get the stats and pictures of various characters in the game.
If you type "DECODE DBIUHU7XDTSMZYO", the following message will appear:
"Valid code found.
You will also hear Morpheus say "You have access." Even more characters are now viewable, such as the Merovingian and Bane.
