Debugging Files

Elementary, my dear Cactus.
This needs some investigation.
Discuss ideas and findings on the talk page.
Specifically: Can this debug mode be reactivated in some way?

Three unused files can be found on the disc, all of which contain code and strings meant for a debugging mode. It would've been controlled using a keyboard and a CD-i dev kit.

cdi_dogd

The first, largest file is cdi_dogd, a debug version of the used file cdi_dog. Its contents can be sorted into three segments.

Segment 1 deals with the gameplay itself, and contains error strings, location variables, and so on. Some parts would be reused for later CapDisc DVC titles, with a select few even having unchanged "DOG DEBUG MENU" text.

The second file is cdi_driversd, a debug version of the used file cdi_drivers. It has 10 additional kilobytes of data spread throughout the file, including these strings:

The third, smallest file is cdi_dogd_data, a debug version of the used file cdi_dog_data. The only change between the two is the addition of a kilobyte of data near the end of the former.
