Easter egg in the Gamebase frontend: who can find it?

Fri Sep 20, 2013 7:08 pm

Since the first version of the Gamebase frontend, a nice easter egg is hidden in the program.
It's still available in the latest (v1.3) version of the frontend.

I wonder how many Gamebase users are aware of this little bonus.
There's no reference to it in any documentation I've found, so you have to find out yourself how to activate it and what is does.

So here's the challenge:
- Try to find out how you can activate the easter egg in the Gamebase frontend.
- Tell us how to start it and what it does.

The answer can be found by analyzing the source code, which is available here.
Non-coders (including myself) should also be able to find the easter egg in the frontend, as long as you search in the right direction and think logically.

If nobody finds it, I will post the answer here after some time.
