Does anyone know of a setup code specifically for Chuck E. Cheese locations? Because there's a couple of ASCII phrases burned into every BIN ROM I've scanned.
WELCOME TO/CHUCK E. CHEESE'S/WORLD PARTY!
Welcome to/Chuck E. Cheese
Plus five character names (CHUCK E, HELEN, MUNCH, PASQUALLY, and another name I forget). I wonder if their images are also burned in the ROMs as well.
Also, the phrase:
THE OFFICIAL PINBALL OF TPO,JAPAN
is in every ROM.
There also appears to be an embedded command language in Stern ROMs. I've found sixteen UNIX-like command-line utilities, and a number of switches. You can hook up a USB device to a pin and do diagnostics? That would be very useful.
Just reporting in on some unusual things.
