Note This exploit was possible in v2.8.3. It was fixed in 2.0.5 and can no longer be performed.
This exploit allowed players to bypass the first level and skip ahead to Slough Creek. The consequence of this glitch is that you would begin without a mate to help you, but the game remains playable in this state.
Putting this glitch into action was as simple as starting a new multiplayer game in Slough Creek. While Slough Creek was loaded in memory, the player would quit to the main menu and begin a new single player game - not quitting the application - while the second level is loaded in memory, the game is tricked into starting a new game in Slough Creek and behaving as if the player is in Amethyst Mountain.
It should be known that saving the game and reloading will return the player to Amethyst Mountain, so the glitch is short-term unless pups have been born.
Modified data filesEdit
It was formerly possible to modify wolf data due to an absent encryption check in a publicly released build, accidentally disabled by the developer, which is normally enabled to prevent file editorial and other such tampering.
While disabled, it was possible to edit wolf files and saved data, allowing for a variety of "hacks" (though really more along the lines of "cheats") including but not limited to the assortment of rainbow-colored wolves, size manipulations beyond WQ's normal range (WolfZilla), and illegal room capacities in multiplayer. Note that any players still using hacked multiplayer games may be reported for abuse and can face consequences for the continued use of altered data, because "editing files to alter functionality" is against the rules.
