People seem to have trouble with the easter eggs, so I'm gonna give some directions (I thought they were all so obvious):

Firstly there's access to the sound test hidden on the main menu. It's a small hidden button that's attached to the top left video screen. Mouse around the swing-arm joint.

In the Masking section there's a button in the shape of a lady's panties in the right side of the screen about half way down. You can click it at any page, but if you have trouble, flip to the page with the actual female figure and point to her nether regions. This takes you to a night club scene with some info on the music used in the tutorial.

At the end of the credits sequence there's a rather large button in the shape of a bar wrapped around one of the lines of text that hangs on the screen as the music fades. This will take you to an object viewer. You'll have a spy glass to view descriptions of some of the various objects that were made for the tutorial. There are several pages.

Also, if you're paying attention, there's several places during the tutorial where there's a funny-looking black scribble down near something. That scribble is very small text that you can zoom in to actually read about where to find the Easter eggs.

For the sake of my ego, I hope the headache didn't result from the tutorial...

...wouldn't it be funny if I attached my ego to this?

Helbereth responds:

I put directions for all the easter eggs in the author's comments...

I did that about 4 months after release, but I still get occasional e-mails about them...

I guess people really don't read those.
