End Credits

  • The end credits have a special coding mechanism, as well as a unique .tbl file.

Per usual, the end credits consist of a series of tasks and names. The tasks are displayed in small, colored capital letters (red, yellow and pink). The names are displayed in large, white capital letters. Probably the greatest mental hurdle to get used to is the necessity to encode each *name* twice; the large, white letters are stored as top/bottom halves. As such, one actually programms a line of "top" values, immediately followed by a line of corresponding "bottom" values. Consult the following table for the respective codes:

Character - Top Half - Bottom Half

A - 5D - 83

B - 5E - 84

C - 5F - 85

D - 60 - 86

E - 61 - 87

F - 62 - 88

G - 63 - 89

H - 64 - 8A

I - 65 - 8B

J - 66 - 8C

K - 67 - 8D

L - 68 - 8E

M - 69 - 8F

N - 6A - 90

O - 6B - 91

P - 6C - 92

Q - 6D - 93

R - 6E - 94

S - 6F - 95

T - 70 - 96

U - 71 - 97

V - 72 - 98

W - 73 - 99

X - 74 - 9A

Y - 75 - 9B

Z - 76 - 9C

(period) - 9F - 37
