To use a cheat code in most versions of Strife, one simply types the code while playing (this also applies while in automap mode). After the last letter has been entered, a message of acknowledgement will appear at the top of the screen. The status bar and ingame view may also change, depending on the effects of the code. All of the codes for the original game work in all source ports, unless otherwise noted. These codes do not work in the shareware version.
Note that using any cheat code in The Original Strife: Veteran Edition disables achievements.
