RAMZAI, BHEAD, SPINE, TANGY, DSTEUZ, ASMAN, COOLER, ROD, probably there are
some more ones. (- SunmaN)

"Facts of Life" by Witan (Party 2)
Like with Unreal, you can run "facts p#" to get to a specific
part of the demo. I think "p5" is the house-techno part.
(- Phoenix[Hornet])

"Final Boom" by Spirit (Bizarre '95)

Run "legend -cpu" to display a CPU usage "meter" throughout the demo.
The higher the grey level, the less power the CPU is using.

"Pure" by Quad (The Party '98)
/setup set video mode.
/save save all data to disk
/load reload all data
There are no "hidden command line switches", although the infofile
hints at it. They have planned some hidden messages, but they had to
remove them due to size limitation when decided to put one more effect,
the last raytrace part in the intro. (- Sarix[Quad])

Press 'S' (shift+s) when the intro asks for the gus port for saving all
the textures, and 'L' (shift+l) for loading data from disk.
(- Sarix[Quad])

"Tahma" by Recreation (TDMC 2)
Type "Tahma jee" for choosing the screen resolution of the demo.
(It's written in the textfile.) (- rod)

"Theta" by Quad (Wired '98)
Press 'S' or 'L' (in upper case) when the intro asks you about the gus
port number, it saves or loads data (music and textures) on/from disk.
(- SunmaN)



Other Tricks
------------

If you have the EGG 2 music disk by Kosmic and Airframe by Prime try this
one. Go into EGG and *start playing* one of the songs. Press ESC after a
few patterns, quit and then go and run Airframe. Lo and behold, Airframe
is now running at twice the speed you are used to. Ditto for Cyboman II.
(- Maverick[Serenity], taken from DemoNews #88, April 30, 1995)
[If I recall correctly I tried this and it didn't work.. maybe Mav just
has a funny-acting GUS :) -Phx]

"303" by Acme
Any key you press will jump an effect, you can watch them
until the musicsync catches on. (- ps & d-lee[exceed])

"Avena Kinetik" by Distortion (1995)
There's a 3ds ascii file at the end of the exefile, which you
can modify to change the object in the demo. I don't know
whether it is the secret part or not but it's silly. (- rod)

"Cyboman 2" by Complex (Party 4)
If you run Cyboman 3 by Plant, then run this intro, the shading in
Cyboman 2 will go from gouraud to flat. (- Trixter[Hornet])

"Dance, Move, Shake" by Kosmic (1997)
For fun, change the speed of DMS.S3M from 4 to 2 and watch the demo fly.
If you're bored, you might want to try changing it to 8 too. :)
(- Phoenix[Hornet])

"Dyslexia" by Threesome (NAID'96)
Run Dyslexia on the following days and the wormhole graphic will change:
10/31 - Halloween
12/25 - Christmas
12/14 - Ms. Saigon's birthday
1/21 - Kneebiter's birthday
3/12 - Mobydisk's birthday
4/7 - Tronster's birthday
(- Kneebiter[Threesome])

"Elektroniks" by Doomsday (Abd '97)
This demo lets you compose your own demo using the same exefile.
Download "DSYS33.ZIP" (available at ftp://ftp.scene.hu/pub/Source/demo/)
for the description of the scripting language.
It can be used in "I Wish I Was a Skijumper", "Boost", "Stigma" and
"Off" as well. (- MRI[Doomsday])

"Gazoline 2" by Recreations *new*
Password for .zip file with demo data is "kakka". (- SunmaN[THROB])

"Heartquake" by Iguana (ASM '94)
If you rename HEARTQ.004 to some .EXE (except HEARTQ) and run it, you will
be able to fly around in the landscape part forever (see keys above).
Also, the "Iguana's Disco" guy doesn't dance (no music?). This EXE ends
at the morphing part, so hitting space bar during that will crash the demo.
(- Kneebiter[Threesome])

"Latex" by Blank (Symp '96)
If you press Escape at the beginning of the 'World Domina' face part,
you'll then be shown the inside of the head, which still manages to morph
into the inflating/exploding one.
(- Phoenix[Hornet])

"Magic View" by Dubius (Abd '96)
Search for 'configuration' in mview.exe and you will find the configuration
file of the first part of the demo. Now you can change the resolution (logos
will be messed) and some other things. Config files for other parts lies
just one after another. (- Yarpen[Substance])

"Stars" by Nooon (ASM '95)
If you have a dual-monitor system (Hercules+VGA), the
Hercules display will show a Nibbles-type game which you can play.
(- Cool-Hands)

"Wish" by Majic 12 (In Bloom '93)
If Wish doesn't work on your machine and says "File error", try to
write byte 75h at offset 21Ah in the file wish.exe. (- SunmaN)

"Xtal" by Complex (1995)
You can remove the 50Hz mode by writing byte C3 into
offset 10C50E in the XTAL.EXE, but that pretty much spoils the demo.
(- JMagic[Complex])

Thanks! Really big HP's collection :)
Anyone else?

Nice list! I guess I'll try a few ones I didn't know.

I that can be of any help to complete your list, here is how you can access hidden parts in some of our demos:

Vodka Demo (Atari)
In the main menu, bring the spaceship to the upper left corner and shot the 'NOT ES' logo, that will load the Black Cats hidden screen.

Virtual Escape (Atari)
Press ESC during the boot, a 'Loading hidden part' bouncing logo should appear followed by the big 3D screen.

Kings of the Playground - Evoke 2004 64k invit (PC)
F1 and SPACE once the cubes started spinning will display a few hidden greetings

All Ümlaüt Design demos had hidden parts from Perec to Structure, and the final version of 73 will have too :D
added on the 2005-10-09 17:59:51 by Gargaj Gargaj
Hmm, I see there are not just hidden parts on that list, the last two ones for example are just "bugfixes" :-)
added on the 2005-10-09 18:20:59 by sparcus sparcus
Btw, just remembered this one:

Phase 2 by Nostalgia ends with a screen filled with what at first glance appears to be a whole pile of identical scrollers, but they're not all identical :-)

Peanut by Efreet runs in negative colors if you hold the N key on start. This is hinted at if you run the "version" command on the intro executable.
added on the 2005-10-09 20:43:54 by Blueberry Blueberry
