...Well, all the articles here are, in a way. But this one moreso, and the article may contain incomplete information and editor's notes.

Volleyball and Birdie Putt is an add-on for the Nicktoons Plug & Play game that adds said additional two games.

An input test. Notice how it contains a C button, even though no such thing is on actual hardware. Pressing this button in MAME doesn't seem to do anything.


Another checksum test of sorts.

Unused Music

Track 5

Track 5 is an unused fanfare sound effect.

NK Lockout

Just like all GameKey cartridges, a test is made to make sure its running on their branded hardware.

In this case, it does a check to see if it is running on an NK unit. If the check fails, an error message will appear.

This can also sometimes be done by messing with the cartridge on startup. This error does not seem to ever occur in MAME.
