Hacking the Matrix can give you access to cheat codes, weapon drops, tons of bonus images and information, a special multiplayer fighting mode, and more.
To start, highlight hack and enter it. If you have multiple logs then just choose the log you want to hack for. You will then see a screen showing basically a computer screen. heres how to control what your doing; the X button will choose commands and press keyboard keys, the square to backspace or cancel commands, the L1 will jump your cursor over to the quick commands list, and the R1 will quickly jump to the Return key.
As you learn new commands, they will be added to the quick command list.(quick commands are the words on the left they are there so you dont have to keep on typing words ovber and over) You can use the EXIT command to stop hacking. exit and help are the only quik commands that you start out with
The first command you know is HELP. Typing HELP followed by a command, such as EXIT will give you information about that command, as well as add the command to your quick list. For now, just type HELP by itself and you will learn the DIR command. when you typ help youll always get an example in this case its HELP DIR. The DIR command lists all the files available in any directory. Type DIR by itself to see the list of directories currently available. so far you will have system, tools, and text.
Type DIR SYSTEM to see some commands in the SYSTEM folder. when you press enter youll get a list of diforent items one is reboot thats not really a good idea to type because you might have lost where your at but in this case its ok to type it just be warned that it will reboot the 'computer'.To find out about each command, type HELP then the command name. Now use DIR TOOLS to see more commands you can use. Again, type HELP then the command to find out how they work. if your not sure what it does you always need to check first, with help. One of the commands you will learn from tools is the CHEAT command. Use this command followed by a cheat code you get from this site to activate or deactivate a cheat. Finally, use DIR TEXT to see the text files. you can not read these things unless you type read and get it in your quick box. using the read command read all the texts available.
Use READ Note2.txt to learn about a password you'll need later. remember this for later or of course you can always just refer back to this folder.
type in the word LOGIN it will ask who this is and you just type guest. you logging in will access the B: drive. Just like with the A: drive youll see in DIR, use DIR to see all the directories, then use DIR on each directory to see what is in it. When you try to use DIR on the TOOLS command, it will ask for a 5 digit binary password.
Binary means just 1's and 0's, so enter any 5 digit code with just 1's and 0's. The correct code is random, but it will give you hints each time you try. Use the hints until you figure out the right sequence.
In the TOOLS directory there is the VIEW command, which you can use on any image file to view that image. Also is the PLAY command, which you can use to watch an FMV movie. Only images and movies that you have unlocked from playing the game are available.
To continue hacking, run the VIRTUAL command, and enter the password you got from the text file in the A:\TEXT\ directory. Now you will be given a picture puzzle. The solution is random again, but there are 2 possible outcomes. One outcome will give you a warning and then a trace will start. To stop the trace, you must quickly type in TRACEKILL and press enter. If you aren't fast enough, you'll have to start all over! Then go back and try the picture puzzle again with the VIRTUAL command, and make a different picture to try to get the other result.
If you get the correct result, you will get access to a V: drive. Use DIR on the V: drive to see yet another TOOLS directory. Use DIR on it to get the ROOTSEARCH and DIAL commands. Use ROOTSEARCH and pay attention to the password it finds, and you will then be given access to the ROOT directory.
The ROOT directory has a MAIL command. Use the MAIL command and enter the password you learned from the ROOTSEARCH command to read an e-mail containing some phone numbers. Use the DIAL command followed by the first phone number in the list (just type the number, leave out the dashes) to hear a recording. Repeat for every number in the e-mail until you get a recording message and are given a 3 digit number.
To use this 3-digit number, use the PORTKEY command followed by the number. This will let you talk to a game character. Just answer the questions and you will get access to a CRACK command with instructions on how to use it. Just type CRACK 8RAM to get access to the RAM drive.
Using DIR on the RAM drive and its directories, then use the HANDSHAKE command to have another conversation with a game character. During this conversation, use the EMP command as requested. This will unlock a fun multiplayer fighting game that you can access by loading your saved game from the main menu, then pressing left until you get to the multiplayer option.
Other useful commands are DROP, which allows you to drop weapons into the game maps you have access to so you can pick them up while playing. There is also a command that gives you access to a sword, but only after you have beaten the game once.
