Are you a bad enough dude to
One would think the GBA version of Sorcerer's Stone would be like the one on Game Boy Color. They would be wrong.
Check if the remaining strings from this full dump are used.
There are some unused strings, probably used in a debugging menu while in development. However, this menu doesn't seem to be accessible in the final game.
22:Music Test 23:SFX Test 24:Chapter 25:Load A-H 26:Load I-Z 27:Version
Is there a way to access this in-game?
Among the names of various areas is this handily labeled string. What exactly this "broom challenge" entailed is unknown.
Broom Challenge - Unused
Are any other lines listed in the text dump unused?
At some point in development, the Sorting Ceremony from the film and book were to be a much longer cutscene that would have run in the game itself. The first unused line was to be spoken by Ron.
Hello, you must be Harry Potter. I'm Ron Weasley. We're supposed to be in the Great Hall for the start-of-term banquet. C'mon, this way.
This line may have been spoken by Snape, as he and Quirrell are often seen together in the entrance hall in the final game.
All first years into the Great Hall, Potter! Hurry up, boy!
This line is clearly for Quirrell, judging by the stutter:
P-Pleased to m-meet you, Mr. Potter. I think y-you should be in the Great Hall.
Dumbledore gets a word in next:
Welcome to Hogwarts. My name is Albus Dumbledore and I am your Headmaster. You are each about to be sorted into one of four houses: Gryffindor, Hufflepuff, Ravenclaw or Slytherin. At the end of the year the house with the most House points will be awarded the prestigious House cup. I hope each of you will bring credit to your house.
One other item before the sorting. This year the 3rd floor corridor is forbidden to all who do not wish to die a painful death.
Our illustrious caretaker, Mr. Filch here, will be making sure none of you strays into the 3rd floor corridor by 'accident'.
McGonagall would then have called several students up to sit beneath the Sorting Hat. In the final game, only Harry is seen beneath the Hat. Interestingly, the chair that the children would sit on while wearing the Hat is in the map for the Great Hall in the final game.
Difficult. Very difficult. So where shall I put you? Not Slytherin, eh? You could be great, you know. Well, if you're sure better be GRYFFINDOR!
This line may have been spoken by Ron.
Over here, Harry!
The last line of this cutscene. From here, the text dump goes straight into the dialogue used in the first level.
