Introduction

With Debug Manager you have a system of hotkeys to display debug information about objects and game systems in X4 Foundations. There are two levels: Level 1 is selection of a Debug Module, Level 2 is selecting the Debug Mode within the Debug Module. A Debug Module usually groups information and manipulation on one type of objects or game system.

This key (located usually above the TAB key and labeled different in other languages) enables these additional keys for the debugging function. This includes using the Function Keys without Shift.

Each Debug Module displays a list of usable keys on top of its debug information. Function keys have to be used together with the Shift key unless additional keys are enabled.
