Scrapped Secret Players?
Stored at x3637C is a list of names and PINs:
MARTIN 0000 CARLOS 0000 CARLTN 0000 EUGENE 0000 DIVITA 0000 JAPPLE 0000 TURMEL 0000 NILS 0000 KRILLE 0000 GLENN 0000 TOMMY 0000 TORE 0000 COLIN 0000
In other versions of the games, these are used to access secret players by entering them at the name entry screen. Doing that here, however, results in nothing happening. That, coupled with the fact that all of the PINs are 0000, indicates that the secret players were cut from this version at some point during development for whatever reason. Also of note is that most, if not all, of the (planned) secret players are members of the development team: Carlos Pesina, John Carlton, Eugene Geer, Sal Divita, Mark Turmell, Nils Erik Hatlem, Glenn Kristofferson, Tommy Svensson, Tore Blystad, and Colin McMahon. The identities of JAPPLE and KRILLE are unknown.
