Trap Door Discovered

Trap Door Discovered

I had originally included in a special "trapdoor" in the 95LX help screens for Hearts & Bones -- a series of screens displaying all of the lab and marketing folks that I knew of who had worked on Jaguar. It took three screens full of first names and last initial. I told my manager about it, and since HB.EXM was in the hidden _SYS directory, and accessing the names required special knowledge even once you got the game going, he seemed inclined to leave it in. Then, about one or two weeks before code release (to get the ROMs made), a Quality Assurance person at HP discovered a "secret" screen that had been included in one of the Lotus components by one of the Lotus engineers, listing seven or eight Lotus engineers and what they had done on the project. Phone calls ensued between HP and Lotus management, both agreed the screen should be removed, and on the next build it was gone. This decision also caused the removal of the credits screen in HB.EXM. (The feeling was that, no matter how careful we were, SOME people who had contributed to the project would be left out, and that wouldn't be fair.)
