Dam received very little in the way of prerelease coverage compared to other stages. As a result, very little is known about its development history, outside of what leftovers remain in its setup file.


Known ChangesEdit

  • Bond originally started the mission with an unsilenced PP7, but also had access to the silenced PP7.
  • The final objective (Bungee jump from platform) was completed immediately after the player gained control of Bond. More than likely the action block for the ending was unfinished at the time.
  • The guard patrolling the first guard tower wore a hat.
  • At least one of the guard's along the dam towers wore a hat.
  • Secret Agent had the same objectives as 00 Agent does in the final.
  • The covert modem connection screen was originally white with lights on it, and it didn't have a screen. That model, identified as "PsatboxZ, is still in the ROM and immediately follows the satellite dish.
  • Manholes were located along the stretch of the dam, rather than (or as well as) infront of the towers.
  • The two last towers had electric doors on the bottom. There are no doors there in the final game.
  • The shadow from the open ceiling in the secret ops room was in a 3x3 grid, rather than a 4x4.
  • The lighting in the secret ops room was brighter, with a lack of shadowing near the back.

This video shows the first three changes, along with the former Bond actors' likenesses being used on the file select screen.

Action BlocksEdit

  • 040B: This block sets an aircraft rotor speed, despite the fact that there are no aircraft in Dam. However, a plane flies over the Dam's reservoir in the film, it's likely that the same thing was intended to happen in the game as well.
  • 040E: Loops forever.

Prerelease Text FileEdit

SubDrag discovered a Dam text file in Perfect Dark that has several differences from the one in the final version of GoldenEye. Interestingly, none of the strings for the mission select briefing are in the file, only the ones used by the watch menu. There is also no text for object interactions, nor the rename strings for the covert modem. The complete text file is reproduced below.

mi6 has confirmed the existence of a secret chemical warfare facility at the arkhangelsk dam, ussr. its heavily guarded location and workings are a cause for major concern. nerve gas produced there has been turning up in the hands of hostile regimes around the world and deals with international terrorists have been rumoured. this facility should be destroyed without prejudice.
the area around the dam is well defended against a full scale military attack but they won't be expecting a lone agent. i've looked at the recon reports and decided that the easiest way to gain entrance to the weapons factory will be to bungee jump down the face of the dam. safe and simple. just throw yourself off the top and remember to look before you leap old chap.
information concerning shipping and contacts is stored on a computer system in a secret ops room within the dam.with this covert modem connected to their satellite link we can intercept this data when a backup is carried out.
hardly a lover's leap, james. be careful though, i hate to think of you falling for anyone else.
neutralize all alarms
install covert modem
intercept data backup
bungee jump from platform
Byelomorye Dam, Archangel, USSR


For comparison, the final version's text file follows.

Nerve gas produced there has been turning up in the hands of hostile regimes around the world and deals with international terrorists have been rumored. This facility should be destroyed with extreme prejudice.

Q had an idea about that.

As for getting down the dam, use the bungee rope. At the bottom of the jump, use the piton gun. Simple.
