Hidden Confidential Message

It's a secret to everybody
A message from a work-in-progress build is still in the game. The subroutine to display this message starts at 000FF6, but it's not referenced at any point in the code. Enter this code in MAME's alexkidd.xml cheat file and enable it to see this message in place of the high score table.

  <cheat desc="Confidential Message">
    <script state="run">
      <action>maincpu.mw@002D70=2D72</action>
      <action>maincpu.mw@002D82=E274</action>
    </script>
    <script state="off">
