Unused Subtitles

Most Humongous games have inaccessible subtitles, and this is no exception. To activate them, add

TextOn=1

to either hegames.ini or scummvm.ini.

Birthdays and Holidays

The help file shows how to activate special birthday messages in case parents want to for their children. Add

BirthdayMonthX=M
BirthdayDayX=D

to hegames.ini or scummvm.ini, where "X" is which birthday number it is (in case you want to have multiple birthdays, so for a second entry it would be "BirthdayMonth2" and so on), "M" is the month number, and "D" is the day number.

So, for example, if you want it to work on May 16 the lines would be

BirthdayMonth1=5
BirthdayDay1=16

which will add the following things:

  • Clicking on the mailbox outside of the farmer's house shows a present instead of a chicken.
  • Clicking on the shutters plays a sound clip of a group of people shouting "Happy Birthday!"

In addition, two holidays can be celebrated: Halloween and the Fourth of July.

  • The Halloween changes occur if the calendar is set to October or early November, which adds a jack-o-lantern in front of the farmer's house and plays a Halloween message in the shutters.
  • The Fourth of July events occur if the calendar is set to July 1-4, and clicking the chimney will shoot fireworks.
