That's a brilliant feature, and a fascinating insight into the design of the game. Platoon was one of my favourite Ocean games on the 64, and features like this are things that you would rarely have the chance to see if you were just a "mere" gamer!

Cheers for that! Glad you liked it. Not much of this material has survived and one of the purposes of the website is to show everyone the bits and pieces like this from back in the day that do still exist as people, like yourself, seem to be interested in it.
Luckily, I saved everything I could get my hands on from when I worked at Ocean. There's lots more to come.
