Hydlide 1 Easter Egg - Hydlide 1 for MSX - Programmer's Hidden Message
Programmer Eiji Kato has hidden a personal message in the code of the game Hydlide 1 for the MSX computer version. Here are the instructions to find this egg:
1. Open the "Hydlide 1" MSX ROM file in a hex editor;
2. Go to offset 0x5000.
3. Look at the right side of the window, where you can see the ASCII characters of the ROM starting from offset 0x5000. The message is written in both English and Japanese language (with latin alphabet). This is what you will find there (the message itself was written all in caps and this is exactly the way you will see it in the ROM dump):
