Unused EXE resources (PC version)

The EXE resource MENU\SHOWTIME shows a menu which has the items "Open F12" (ID 101), "Load file" (ID 102), "Play F11" (ID 109) and "Exit F3" (ID 107). However, these keys do not work.

There is also a file open dialog at resource DIALOG\1536.

Note: The resources of a 16-bit EXE file can be viewed with the tool "Borland Resource Workshop".
