Code Explanation
BJYT-AA4A Master code (improved). Only needed if you get a blank screen when using the codes. Also makes the game load faster. Probably not needed on real hardware.
RF5A-A6ZA + RF4T-A6WT Can always see the entire map. Just scroll the screen in any direction and you'll be able to see everything.
AK8T-EA7Y + B5YA-AA5C Can place your new buildings anywhere on the map. For example, you can place a vehicle or troop factory right next to the enemy base, put a refinery out in the sand dunes, etc.
GKPT-JACA Harvester only has to collect half as much spice before it returns with a full load. This means the harvester will return twice as fast and you will be given credit for a full load of spice, even though you only collected half a load. May also affect enemy harvesters.
DFPT-JACA Harvester only has to collect 1/4 as much spice before it returns with a full load. This means the harvester will return 4 times faster and you will be given credit for a full load of spice, even though you only collected 1/4. May also affect enemy harvesters.
AC4A-NAFT Refinery doesn't use any energy.
HC3T-P958 Windtrap produces twice as much energy.
BW3T-P758 Windtrap produces 5x as much energy.
4C4A-NRFR Refinery holds 2000 units (instead of 1005). May work on silos as well. May also affect enemy refineries.
YC4A-N8FR Refinery holds 4000 units (instead of 1005). May work on silos as well. May also affect enemy refineries.
ACZA-BA2T All vehicles and troops take no damage. Can be turned on or off at any time. Also affects enemies, so use with caution. Can be very useful.
AK0A-JA34 1 hit destroys any vehicles, troops, or sand worms. Can be turned on or off at any time. Also affects enemies, so use with caution.
AM6T-AA24 All buildings take no damage. Can be turned on or off at any time. Also affects enemies, so use with caution.
AM6T-AA3C 1 hit destroys any building. Usually, several buildings will be destroyed with 1 hit. Can be turned on or off at any time. Also affects enemies, so use with caution.
AMAA-NAH0 The blue trikes (Atreides) move very slowly.
KSAA-NAH0 The blue trikes (Atreides) move faster than normal.
NXAT-NAAJ The blue trikes (Atreides) do 100 damage per shot (instead of 8).
4DAT-NRAJ The blue trikes (Atreides) do 2000 damage per shot (instead of 8). You can destroy any vehicle or building in the game with 1 shot.
3DAA-NAGE The blue trikes (Atreides) can take twice as much damage before they are destroyed.
JDAA-NNGE The blue trikes (Atreides) can take 10x as much damage before they are destroyed.
ADAA-NAGL The blue trikes (Atreides) cost nothing to build.
K5AT-NAAG The blue trikes (Atreides) can attack any target from anywhere on the map, no matter how far away it is. This means you can attack enemy bases from the safety of your own base.
7Z2A-LGAA Automatically win mission 1 (Atreides House only).
BB2T-LRFC Start mission 2 with 1800 credits (Atreides House only).
MK2T-LYFC Start mission 2 with 2650 credits (Atreides House only).
