Early game mockup

In the "TEST" directory are the 3D model "TOWN.TMD" and corresponding texture "TOWN1.TIM". These show a small portion of the town populated with three residents. The model and texture data are appropriate for use on the PlayStation, but too high quality to be used as real in-game graphics. These resources can be loaded into MilkShape 3D and give the following scene:

Sh-towndemo.png

The residents have no corresponding texture data. These assets may have been used to initially visualize what the game looked like. Another model, "OB.TMD", shows a storefront on a street corner but has no associated texture data.

Unused audio

The file "1ST/COATION.VAB" (Caution?) contains two copies of the following sound clip:

As the "1ST" folder contains resources used during startup such as the Konami/KCET logos and other warning screens, this clip may have been played for a particular screen.
