.INI file cheats
This cheat changes the file "defuser.ini" in the game directory where BioShock is stored on your computer. It is recommended that a back-up of the original "defuser.ini" file be saved prior to any alterations are made.
To enable the cheats, create key bindings line of code in the file (e.g. "F9=ghost"). The example sets the "ghost" cheat to the key F9. If F9 is pressed during gameplay, the "ghost" cheat will be activated. Here is a list of available cheats that can be bound:
