*If you are under 14 or have a Datel Action Replay, you may not read further*

Right that's that over with.

For those who might possibly be interested, rather than those who just want
to hack the program to bits....

Sega wouldn't let us have ANY credits on the game, so I thought we might
as well put some here.

I (Richard Aplin) wrote the Amiga and ST versions (though at the time of writing
- 12th Nov.1990 - I haven't started the ST conversion yet!)
I much prefer the Amiga (doesn't anyone?) so I have done that version
first, using all the extra hardware, then i'm going to bang out the
ST version when necessary.

"Uncle Art" (actually a limited company!) did the (not very good) music.
- Oh yeah.. Apologies and sympathy to Uncle Tom (the person!) for the
fuck up with his amazing Double Dragon II music!

The bitmap graphics were grabbed from the arcade PCB video output by Andy Heike
and Nick Vincent with the colour frame grabber, and the sprites were read,
decoded and converted from the arcade machine's Eproms by me. (Not a bit
of bloody help from Sega either!) They were remapped from 21 million to 16
colours by Andy Heike, Nick Vincent, and some students in Manchester.

I sampled the sound effects from the PCB's sound chip (not very hard at all!)

Tiertex wrote the protection check code (which is utter shit - well on form
for Tiertex!)

Steve Fitton and Tony Porter from U.S. Gold provided all the nagging and
hassle which was most unwelcome, but kind of expected anyway.

During the writing of this, I used:

3 Commodore A500s
21Mb A590 Hard Disk + 2.5Mb ram
Commodore A1000 + 2Mb ram
Tandon 20Mhz 80386 PC + 40Mb Hard Disk
Souped-up JCL Colourpic video frame-grabber
PerfectSound sampler

+Various extra drives, disks, etc,etc
Lots of coffee

Fun (Notice how the two are divided?!?)
Nintendo GameBoy (+Tetris & others)
Sega MegaDrive (+Ghouls'n'ghosts, etc)
Mr.Do! arcade board
Hundreds of records, tapes & CDs and a {} stereo
Sony Video Walkman (+Blackadder 1-4, Comic Strip, Young Ones, and others)
Roland D110 multi-timbral LA synth (rackmount)
Cheetah MS6 multi-timbral analogue synth (rackmount)
Yamaha TX7 FM synth (stupidly-shaped black box)
Casio FZ1 16-bit sampler + loads of disks
Alesis Quadraverb 16-bit digital fx processor (rackmount)
Fender Strat guitar (well, a cheap clone)
A couple of guitar fx pedals
DeskTech 6:2 mixer

US Robotics Courier HST modem (for P.D. BBSs of course)
Many gallons of beer, Black Bush whisky, Potheen (when available - cheers Mark!)
Various people's floors/sofas/etc in London when at computer shows
(most time spent at the bar)"

If you type in "Game Grumps" at the Museum Entrance, secret text will appear saying:

"Far behind the inventor you see a poster for Game Grumps, the popular internet series hosted by Arin Hanson and Dan Avidan. The poster is bright orange with text in BD Cartoon Shout font, and it features caricatures of the show's hosts sporting grump expressions.

[Note: This Easter Egg is brought to you by Vitas Varnas without the knowledge or participation of the Game Grumps, members of their families, deceased relatives, or people they hang out with in pubs.]"

This is a reference to the internet let's play channel Game Grumps and their logo which uses the font style mentioned above. Actor Vitas Varnas was also the one who had inserted the Easter Egg into the game, who has often contributed games to the show.
