Hmmm...
To do:
Examine this compendium of audio clips.

Dummy Files

DUMMY.STR is the FOX Interactive logo, albeit with a watermark for the shareware version of VideoFramer.

There are also two TXT files with short development notes, titled DUMMY.TXT and DUMMY2.TXT.

File Text

Unused Levels

Hmmm...
To do:
See if there are any other unused oddities relating to this level such as music.

school.s3d

There is a full but unused arena based on Springfield Elementary School. It can be seen by swapping the text krusty.s3d with school.s3d in BIG.BIN, which will cause the game to load the school level instead of the Krustylu Studios level.

bigape.s3d

An arena with a picture of the developers and mascot of Big Ape Productions drawn as Simpsons characters. It can be loaded with the same method as the aforementioned level but with the text bigape.s3d.
