I don't think this file was ever finished, it ends very early in the production stages. Still, its kind of enlightening to read how the process took place, up until the point where Seth stopped writing about it that is.

As far as really useful information, there isn't much here, I'm thinking that perhaps it belongs in the miscellaneous group rather than in development. However, I did find one little gem of information that I've never seen talked about before: sp_picfreeze , an undocumented command that allows you to move a sprite that is part of a sequence without cycling through the sequence itself. Seth used it for the ship in Mystery Island.

If you have a few minutes of free time and need something half-way interesting to occupy your brain waves, this MIGHT be worth reading.
