In Response To: Re: A Small Cedar Box (Hopper)

: The bit about how the game updates that flag is an educated guess, based on
: how the save file changes after playing with the flashlight.

I can confirm the educated guess, from looking at a disassembly of the 68K code from version 2.0.

Interestingly, the code also tests if the batteries are dead, and won't let you use a flashlight with dead batteries. Maybe the notion of batteries dying is a leftover concept from a previous version of the game. That would explain why you can even find additional flashlights, and why you can duplicate them. As I recall, there's an extra flashlight on Need a Light, giving the level name a second meaning. You'd have the Cedar Box by then, and if your original batteries have died when you get there it might occur to you to try making more batteries.
