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.

Attitude

Adding the line

Attitude=1

to hegames.ini or scummvm.ini will have extra scenes in certain rooms.

  • Room 28 causes Buzzy to burp during one of the dialogues, when using the Buzz option to explain the area.

  • In Room 36, when clicking on the first man waiting in line, it always shows the animation of pulling a rabbit out of his pocket (it is very rarely seen otherwise).

  • Room 25 adds an extra dialogue option when clicking on the second man waiting in line and increases the chance of seeing Elvis going down the escalator.

  • Room 37 changes the dialogue used by the parking attendant.

Unused Music

In the finished game, the waiting room plays music from Putt-Putt Goes to the Moon and Freddi Fish. However, there is also music from Putt-Putt Joins the Parade and Fatty Bear's Birthday Surprise leftover in the game data, despite never playing. There is no known reason for these going unused; the fact that the used music was composed by The Fat Man and the unused music was done by Tom McMail may have something to do with it though.

Unused Sounds

File Notes
An unused radio static sound. As the person changes it, several excerpts of the click points of the game and part of the unused song from Freddi Fish and the Case of the Missing Kelp Seeds are heard.
An unused human chatter. Possibly, it was for the waiting room at the airport, since in the final version, you only hear the music and the announcer.

"Lost Luggage" Level Editor

By entering PORKDUDE as the name for the Time to Play games, the level editor for Lost Luggage can be accessed. Once you go into Lost Luggage, press the "c" key to go to it. Upon doing so, you are greeted with the message

Welcome, PorkDude - Master Baggage Handler - Construction Privileges are ON.

It also gives a "Help..." button, but the help file for this editor was excluded in the final product.

The editor is very simple to use. Use the arrows to scroll through the parts and click on to select it. Left click to place it on the grid, and right click or select the blank piece to remove it. When you are ready to test the level, press C again. Be warned that levels cannot be saved, and if you fail the level it will reset back to the regular one.
