Amiga - Hidden Credits screen

Post by Adz.M » Mon Sep 23, 2019 3:32 pm

The Amiga version of Magicland (depending on what ROM you have) has a hidden credits screen.

As mentioned on some Amiga sites, press the DEL key while the loading picture is displayed, and when the game should start, it will instead load a hidden demo file on the disk (HAM.PIC) that contains the following message:

Thought I'd check this out as I do have all the Dizzy games on my Clionto Amiga emulator ...only to discover that every single one is a cracked version :v2_dizzy_crazy:

It does work on some cracked versions.

The ROM I have it works on has this filename.
Magicland Dizzy (1992)(Codemasters)[cr TRSi].adf

It doesn't work on the 'Dizzy Collection' compilation version though.

Also, here are the tracks contained in the hidden credits, the 4th track is just the Magicland theme.
