While playing as Delphi in base missions, it is not necessary to hunt Vimps. You can also get soul energy from Sea Reapermen and the two kinds of Rippers that can burrow (but not the ones that approach the base along with the Reapermen.) In other words, you can hang around and defend your base while still powering the Persuader very nicely. With anything you kill, including Vimps, you have to get close to the body before it disappears to get the soul energy (fairly easy, but a complete non-issue if you use the knife.) The soul gauge is located between the spell icons.

Press T or Y during gameplay, then type MasterDebug as a case-sensitive code. Press KEYPAD ASTERISK to toggle debug mode. Press ~ while in debug mode to display the debug menu. You can also start the game with the -GCKMasterDebug case-sensitive command line parameter. Note: Debug mode can only be enabled in v1.0 of the game and was removed on subsequent patches.
To play the original, uncensored version of the Sea Reapers, enter the "bin" folder in the game folder. Move the "arpfix.gzp" file to another folder. To restore the game to normal, just move the file back to its original location.
