You have been invited to play poker with a hyperkinetic rabbity thing, an egotistical wrestle man, a violent mercenary, and a very hardcore gamer. The gameplay itself is rather mediocre, but the real hook is the hilarious dialogue between the characters.

Difficulty Select

The file "pokerconstants.lenc" found in the "0_4.ttarch" archive is where the difficulty select is stored. Unlike the final game, this file mentions an easy mode, the final game only has normal, and hard.

[kDifficulty_Hard = 3
kDifficulty_Medium = 2
kDifficulty_Easy = 1]

Unused Save Slots

The game mentions in it's code with in the file "mainmenu.lenc" found in the archive "1_CelebrityPoker_pc_data.ttarch", there are three save slots, despite only one being used in the final, and it does'int function like most other TellTale game.

local kPlayGameButton1Name = "ui_menu_PlayGame_SaveGame1_title"
local kPlayGameButton2Name = "ui_menu_PlayGame_SaveGame2_title"
local kPlayGameButton3Name = "ui_menu_PlayGame_SaveGame3_title"
local kPlayGameButtonStartName = "ui_menu_PlayGame_buttonContinue"

Debug Functions

This game as usual with most TellTale games has code for a debug mode, found in the "gametable.lenc" file in the archive named "0_5.ttarch".

GameTable.GetDebugMode = function(self)
  return self.debugMode
end
GameTable.SetDebugMode = function(self, bDebug)
  self.debugMode = bDebug
end

The game's "1_CelebrityPoker_pc_data.ttarch", contains a file dedicated to debugging named "debug_celebritypoker.lenc". Other files also relating to debug materials found in the same archive is "debug.imap", "debug_cards.scene", and "logic_debug.prop".

Hidden Developer Messages

Throughout the game's files are various developer messages that are used in print commands, possibly in a log window during development.

Found in gametable.lenc in the same archive as the debug mode.

GameTable.GetNextNonBustedPlayer = function(self, player)
  local allPlayers = self.players
  local index = table.find(allPlayers, player)
  local startIndex = index
  local nextPlayer = nil
  repeat
    index = index + 1
    if #allPlayers < index then
      index = 1
    end
    if startIndex == index then
      Print("NO NEXT NON-BUSTED PLAYER, aborting")
      return nil
    end
    nextPlayer = allPlayers[index]
  until not nextPlayer:IsBusted()
  return nextPlayer
end
GameTable.IsCalledAllIn = function(self)
  if self.edgeCaseAllInBigBlindHasLessThanSmallBlind then
    return true
  end
  if #self:GetActivePlayers() == 2 and self.bigBlindAllIn and self.smallBlindStillCanAct then
    return false
  end
  local anyAllIns = false
  local numNotAllIn = 0
  for i,player in ipairs(self:GetActivePlayers()) do
    if player:IsAllIn() then
      anyAllIns = true
    end
    if player:GetChips() > 0 then
      numNotAllIn = numNotAllIn + 1
    end
  end
  if anyAllIns and numNotAllIn <= 1 then
    Print("NO BETTING, ALL IN IS CALLED")
    return true
  end
  return false
end

Dummy File

"dummy.prop" is as it says, a dummy file.

Test Files

There are two files in the "1_CelebrityPoker_pc_data.ttarch" file, one is "poker_backgroundtest.d3dmesh", and the other "poker_backgroundtest.prop".

Unused Dialogue

Several unused audio files exist in the game, and can be extracted with the Telltale Speech Extractor program.

Max

Max has the most unused sounds of any character in the game.

Check-check-double-check!

Would have been used when Max checks.

I'm gonna check. Yep. Still here.

Another checking dialogue.

You'll take it and you'll like it!

Would've been used upon being the last to fold.

[239153176]
Animation=
Extra=
Category=MAX
Speech=[Remember that part of him IS actually made of money] {confused1}Actually, my small intestine {happy1}IS clogged with a roll of Sacajawea dollars I wanted to smuggle into Canada...

This line uses developer text relating to the dialog.

Heavy

Meant for when Heavy folds, as he says "No" in Russian. (The alt in the filename suggests this)

[239153158]
Animation=
Extra=
Category=HEAVY
Speech={furious1}[Offended, no one knows why] WHAT?! I AM NOT MOONLIGHTER!

The speech portion of the file also shows developer text about the dialog.

Tycho

Whoever knocks me out of the tournament is the proud new owner of that slightly-used garment.

Implies that Tycho was originally going to buy-in with his sweater. In-game, he buys-in with a watch. Thought, Tycho and even the host didn't reply to the players that whoever knocks him out will receive his watch.

Host

An alternate of the Host/Winslow's line "The player has...".

Murder

These lines were either meant for an additional bonus or for a promotional game at PAX where the people would make scenes to find out who committed a murder at the Inventory.

Host: It appears there has been... a MURDER!

Max: Remember, kids: Crying is an invitation to the crypt.

Host: Just goes to show that anything can happen at the Inventory.

Max: Uhh... you know there's an actual dead guy here, right?

Unused Textures

Hmmm...
To do:
There might be more. Also, what appears to be leftover textures from Sam & Max are in the game.

Pnati env street.png

A photo of the main street from Sam & Max: Beyond Time and Space is in the game's files.

Pnati holdem cards.png

Leftover graphics pertaining to TellTale Texas Hold 'Em, TellTale's first game.

Pnati obj 105nametags.png

Bob's name tags from Sam & Max.

Pnati obj dust.png

Pages from a magazine? Whatever they are, they don't seem to be used. Its internal name is obj_dust.
