Diablo 2-
Windowed game
Start the game with the "-w" command line parameter to run it in a window on the desktop.

Cow level
When you have the Horadaric Cube, obtain "Wert's Leg" in Tristram (where you go to rescue Deckhard Cain). Go to the northwest part of the town and search the boy's body. Place both Wert's leg and a Tome of Town Portal in the Horadaric Cube, and it will open a portal to a hidden level filled with axe carrying cows. Do not go through the portal until you are over level 35 because the cows are quite numerous and strong.

Retrieving items after death
Save and exit the game after dying. Restart the game, and your corpse will be in town, allowing you to retrieve your possessions.

Avoid no-win situation
Press [Esc] when facing imminent death, then save and exit the game. Load the game again to start in town, where you can buy weapons, life, etc.

Gain money and items quickly
Travel past the Blood Moor and look for a cave. The cave has two levels, with a golden chest somewhere at the second level. Inside are usually health potions, mana potions, scrolls of town portal or identify, unidentified weapons and armor, and sometimes even a rare item that can be sold for a great deal of money. If you identify the item and it is something that you do not want, sell it. Save and exit the game. The next time the game is loaded, the chest will still be there with different items. This can be done as many times as needed.

More money for items
Identify or repair items before selling them.

Infinite one way portal
Cast a Town Portal from a safe location, then take the portal into town. Use the waypoint system and run to get back to your last location. This allows you to use the portal to go back into town an unlimited number of times as long as you do not use it from town to return to where you were previously.

Duplicate items
Note: This only works on Open Battlenet, as the characters need to be saved on your computer. This trick also requires two computers with two copies of Diablo 2. Get the items to be duplicated. Copy the "Save" folder from the Diablo 2 folder of that computer and paste it on your desktop. Go online with both computers and meet in a game. Give the items to be duplicated to the second computer, then save and exit. Press [Alt] + Tab] on the first computer to switch to Windows and copy the "Save" folder from your desktop back to its original location, overwriting its current contents. Return and join the other computer in the game. You will now have all your original items and the other computer will have a copy of them. Note: This does not work with the +1 Skill book from Act 2, as you are only allowed to do it once.

Doom 2:Hell on Earth-
Network cheat mode
Hold [Alt] and type "iddtiddtiddtiddt" in map mode.

Deathmatch cheat mode
