Lotus III weird loading trick

Lotus III weird loading trick

Start this game up, right at the beginning before the "Loading" screen comes up hold your left mouse button.

It says for a brief second "SELF TEST CHECK TRACK" and then it scrambles.

after that nothing happens, its not really special probably a developer built in disk checker or something.

But i found it by accident on my real amiga

Not a loading "trick" at all and nothing weird either, just reads the tracks and displays a checksum once finished. Works fine in the original game.

Ahh ok, yeah like i said i discovered this by accident. it not really special tho.

I wonder if more games have these kind of "hold left / right mouse" loading things?
