Unused Sounds

Placeholder Audio

Some of Plankton's tutorial lines are recorded by someone who isn't Doug Lawrence, and likely a developer.

Audio Subtitle
Pacing is the key to a great cartoon, keep your cartoon to under 60 seconds or you're gonna lose your audience's attention.
If you can't say everything you need to say in eight scenes or less, you may prepare yourself for a sequel.
Sorry kid there's no room in the timeline for that. If it's absolutely integral to your scene, you're gonna have to either move or delete some things to make some room.
Easy hot shot, only four visuals effects per scene. You ain't big time yet.

Debug Text

A debug text file aptly named debug.txt can be found in the game's main directory. It seems to handle some of the game's resources, such as the 3D renderer and the amount of memory available for the game.

[#speed: 3798, #OS: "Windows XP, version 6.1", #memory: "2047 MB/2047 MB", #renderer: #directX7_0, #devices: [#openGL, #directX5_2, #directX7_0, #software]]

Lingo

Used for error logs in the swf files.

Developer Messages

Throughout the game's cast files are filenames left by a disgruntled developer who clearly had some grievances during development.

  • In vwdirect.cxt are two graphics named Burn_In_Hell_Macromedia_Programmers and Macromedia_Director_Is_A_Piece_Of_Shit, which are just black and white boxes, respectively.
  • In help.cxt is hlp_pl_pr_intro_211_Fuck_Rault.mp3, which is otherwise just Plankton's help dialog.
