Propellerhead Top Tip

Look away now if you are a fan of the Windows game Minesweeper because the spoilsports at Propellerhead are about to reveal a hidden secret that will allow you surreptitiously see where mines are located on the grid. All you have to do is open the game, move the mouse cursor to the game panel, type the following code: xyzzy then press Shift > Enter > Enter. You should now notice a small white dot — just 1 pixel in size — appear in the top left hand corner of your monitor screen. If you now move the mouse pointer to the game grid every time it passes over a mine the pixel will turn black. 

It’s okay, you can look now, we’ve finished… For more tips and tricks like this pop over to the BootLog website at www.rickmaybury.com
