Zx81 and Spectrum Football Manager had 99 to Continue? What was that? Well to choose the player you were picking you typed his number:
.. or typed 99 to continue? Where did I get that from? Well obviously it was not a number of one of the players, but why 99? Well it was actually from my experience programming mainframe computers. From 99 representing generic 2 digit fields.
The thing is, people remember it with affection as an oddity of the game, and I got asked to include it as a feature, so I did in the Version 1.05 release. A truly unusual feature to add! 🙂
(OK to be fair you don’t need to type 99, to continue 🙂
