Bug Description

For example, when I tried make it so, it didn't work.

In fact the only cheats that I could get to work were (though I'm not sure I tried all of them listed in

glittering prizes
it is a good day to die

I didn't try all of the others but the ones I did try didn't work.

You can see cheat in wargus/scripts/cheats.lua

Note that cheats are enabled only in single player mode.

Yes but they don't work even in single player mode.

After messing with wargus/scripts/cheats.lua, adding messages at various points, the following cheats do not work:

"hatchet": enters correct if statement, never returns from SetSpeedResourceHarvest
"normal debug" and "fast debug": enters loop, never completes iteration. SetSpeedResourceHarvest also suspect
"make it so": detects speedcheat flag, enters loops, never completes iteration. SetSpeedResourceHarvest also suspect
"fill mana": enters loop, never returns from SetUnitMana

Obviously "there is no aliens level" doesn't have a function, but it triggers the if statement and makes it to the return true. "disco" executes cleanly but I play with music off so I don't know if it works correctly.

Other tested cheats (all working): "glittering prizes", "on screen", "fow on", "fow off", "unite the clans", "you pitiful worm", "it is a good day to die".

It also successfully makes it to return false if you pass something that isn't listed.

I read "fix is released" but I don't understand...
I want to skip some campaign levels but it does not work. I have Warcraft II Wargus 2.3

How do I use other cheats like "Tigerlily" to jump levels ?
or "There can be only one" for campaign victory.
  I'm trying all googling, checking cheats.lua - it's not there.. why would you not enable some cheats whilst you did so amazing remake of whole game... ahh. So how to do it ???
