Debug dips are already in the game and vary wildly from cheats that are already in the UniBios, for example certain codes might let you run the game in its original graphical and musical state (see Puzzle Bobble's 'Arkanoid Mode') or allow you access to whole hidden menus ingame (see Pleasure Goal), they are also hardcoded into the games themselves by the developers so are entirely different from normal UniBios cheats (hence Raz sticking a mode in to switch them on :P) in addition, ocassionally (it's rare but it happens...) there might actually be a game that lets you cheat ingame in a way not supported yet by the UniBios - for example see the King Of the Monsters 2 invicibility cheat :)
