Legacy of Kain - Soul Reaver: Debug patch

Hi there,

Here is just one of the many small things I want to share. I have many 90% done projects and it has become quite difficult to find time to finish them. So here is my first attempt since a long time to release something new!

Some months ago I was digging in that game binary, almost out of curiosity. I remember reading somewhere online that the PSX and PC versions had debug menus. With no surprises, I found out that the debug strings where also present in the Dreamcast retail version, meaning there is a change to re-activate the debug features. I think the debug menu is interesting on this game. Many features are like cheats but some others make the game funny to play with: you can start a new game and right away equip Raziel with the Soul Reaver sword or enable Raziel capabilities like passing through barriers, etc. :-)

Note that this patch is for the PAL-UK version of Soul Reaver on Dreamcast. If you want a patch for the other versions (like PAL-FR, PAL-ES, or even NTSC), send me a link to a gdi dump.
