Warhammer - Shadow of the Horned Rat Game Cheats
Instructions are for Windows 95 only although this will
probably work with Windows 3.1 as well.
Start the game as normal
Load any saved file
Now press ALT ESC this will change Warhammer to a window
Start WORDPAD from the START PROGRAM ACCESSORIES menu
Open file :SHADOW OF THE HORNED RAT\SAVED\ARMY.MRC
Now the fun begins.
Modify any unit listed or add new/killed ones. Add magic
items or spells.
You may modify the number of troops or Active troops given after S_SIDE as
You may change any of the values after S_MOVE as they represent the stats
from the book. Increase Move (Non mounted only), Weapon Skill, Balistic
Skill, Strength, Toughness, Wounds, Initiative, Attacks, or Leadership.
If you know the names for magic items you may add them to any units after
the banner line.
If you know the names for spells you may add them to any wizards after the
To help you with these review the .MRC and .BTS file in directory SHADOW OF
THE HORNED RAT\FILE\SCRIPT
You may copy complete units from the MRC files. Do not forget to update the
number of units
Many other things can be changed such as armor, weapon, balistic weapon,
etc. However these use codes and not names so you will need to
experiment. Once you have finished save the file and return to the game.
Use the maximize button to get the full screen. You will now find all
these values reflected in the troop roster and everywhere else.
you can only modify ARMY.MRC after loading a game as it is stored
in memory after this.
Also the amount of gold may be modified using a hex editor from any saved
file in :SHADOW~1\SAVED\SAVEGAME.
It is stored at location F0 in the file in reverse hex form ie F7 01 = 500.
I recommend copying ARMY.MRC and SAVEGAME. before starting and the
usual disclaimers are in effect, you do this at your own risk.
P.S if anyone knows how the number of wounded is recorded/calculated drop
me a line.
