Developer Message

There is a message within the game's BASIC loader. While it is technically used, it's not visible as it is normally black text on a black screen. This makes it impossible to see the text unless the game is hacked.

Hello again
Yes its me, the person who allways ends up doing the masters for elite games. 
I cant think why i dont even work for elite, i work, or should i say own
xcel software anyway they pay me enough to put my multi colored loader on there games
so who's conplaning.

and its nearly twelve now, I hope you keep listening to prince, and even if you dont 
i hope you keep buying games and enjoy reading all of my little messages.

You will find them on most of the new elite games and all of my games from Xcel 
but remember, dont tell anyone or they wont ask me to do any more, and then how will
