Just so you know, we don't cover debug modes when they're an integral part of gameplay.

MacFORTH Artifacts

Once again, the MacFORTH development system leaves bits of itself strewn around...

Finder Icons

ChipWits (Mac OS Classic) - BLKS.png

ChipWits 1.1 contains this icon for a MacFORTH blocks file.

Race Car Simulator (Mac OS Classic) - 4th APPL.png

ChipWits 1.2 contains the blocks icon, plus an app icon that it shares with Race Car Simulator.

Version String

Both circulating versions have the same owner resource, which appears in the Get Info window under later versions of Mac OS. It too belongs to MacFORTH and not ChipWits.

About Boxes

This credit screen hides in ChipWits 1.1 as a PICT resource:

ChipWits 1.2 was compiled by a later edition of MacFORTH, which self-advertised under its tagline.

1.2 also has this placeholder header for a custom about box...

Its called Hello, World! and if ur impress u can send me $15 ShareWare

...but since ChipWits has no about box, none of these graphics have anywhere to show up.
