Vette! (Mac OS Classic)
Vette! was one of the first open world driving games, boasting a fully 3D simulation of the streets of San Francisco.
MENU resource 666 contains no items, just the title "VETTE! Demo" preceded by 29 spaces. Here's what it would look like if added to the menu bar:
However, the only demo to resurface is a self-running one, in which MENU 666 is titled (with no leading spaces) "VETTE! Demo - VETTE! and Color VETTE! by Spectrum HoloByte". In this non-interactive demo, it replaces the File through Tour menus completely.
Resource 177, the High Score submenu of the Options menu, is misnamed "High Screen". This title is overridden in-game by the corresponding item of the Options menu.
The "β BETA β" menu was probably used during beta testing. It offered a peek at the offscreen bitmaps (except for Screen 5, I guess)...
...and the ability to jump to coordinates on the map:
If the copy protection trivia challenge is failed twice, the player is allowed to race anyway...but the gearbox is jammed, reacting randomly if at all to the player's input and never exceeding second gear. After a couple minutes of this frustration, the following message is shown and the game quits.
- Version 1.01 (1 May 1991) made the police less aggressive on freeways and bridges, and able to ticket the AI opponent if it broke the law. A "Restart Race" command was added to start a new game with the same settings.
- Version 1.02 (23 June 1992) reduced the manual lookup copy protection to a single question the first time the game is played. The page numbers for the questions were advanced by two to match the second edition of the manual.
