Anarchy (Atari ST)
This game has a hidden developer message.
As with Blood Money, Wayne Smithson scattered several messages in the first handful of sectors on the game's disk, including the boot sector. The hex addresses listed below apply to the .stx dump of the original 1990 release.
WJS DESIGN, PARK MILL HOUSE, STANNINGLEY ROAD, LEEDS, LS12 3LR. BOG OFF!
Hello, are you looking at this with a sector editor? If so, does it make any sense to you?... I thought not!!!
Favourite things: Harpo's Pizza, Cartoons (especially Road Runner), Steve Wright in the afternoon, Ferraris, Loud music, Coffee, Paintballing, Cinema, Computers (nah!), Hi-tec gadgets, Black Adder, The Jeans ad with the dog guarding them on the beach (burble burble).
Welcome to Wayne's wonderful world of protection, how far can YOU get? This sector is pretty tame, its only text! It may still be of some significance though... who knows? Any of you into paintballing? If so, get in touch (address in sector 1), I'd love to shoot a few hackers! The site (Transcan) is near York, you have to be over 18. Finally, if you must hack this game, knock it out as a demo by only leaving a couple of levels in it, don't steal from me 'cos I can't afford it! GOOD LUCK! - Wayne :)
HI TO MARK (GUIDO!), NEIL, OZZ, DMA, P.P. (DON'T RIP!)
I've got a long green Phantom (on 0898....)
sussed yet? And when you have, what happens next? You'll have to re-write my loaders for a start, I use a 12x 510 byte sector format on some tracks! HAVE FUN!
Present in the IPF dump after those messages are these:
Hi to Richard, Paul, and everyone else at the Leeds 16 bit club. Also to The Lost Boys who I met at last years PC Show, don't stick this on one of your menus guys!.... A WELL DONE to ST Action for bungling the ANARCHY/IT CANT BE DONE demo! (just kidding Jason!).
The Transcan Barbarians paintball team are here..... GOD, DOING SECTORS IS BORING, BORING, BORING! LUFC, going up!
