I found strange text strings in the main file of Vice City (vc.exe)

When i am looking for game with Dev C++ program (to vc.exe), I found strange text strings which is probably written by the developers ( i guess.) So.. here it is;

"Can't find the f*cking animation"

"Haven't i told you i can't find the f*cking animation"

 

That is really weird actually. 

I think this text strings shouldn't be inside of the game.

 

So is this a kind of communication with developers while they are making this game ?!?!?

Hmmm nice bike

That probably is some internal developer memo or communication. Reminds me of the development log that somehow ended up in V's files, except that was a huge find since it showed at least two years worth of issues they were running into. Funny how these things end up left within the game and they're basically just hidden.

Those messages are from the development stage from the game. GTA III has some of them as well.

Maybe a stupid question, but are you looking on the original exe file or a no-cd one? Because one of my friends thought, this text might have been present in the no-cd one, to pass some file checks.

Original one. 

Cuz, if it wouldn't be original, the game shouldn't say "No disc inserted, Please insert VICE CITY PLAY disc" i mean...

right ???

Not exactly.

 

Think about a script like this:

if 1 < 2 then "You're right!"
if 1 > 2 then "You're wrong!"

Both text strings "You're right!" and "You're wrong!" will be in the code and visible when using a specific tool. However, in game you'll only see "You're right!". Why? Because the second statement is always false and therefore the text, even though it exists, it will never be displayed.

Now, same thing may happen in VC. Making a no-cd doesn't mean you remove a text string. The text remains, you just make it not to appear ;) .
