1st Warning (1985-1990, 1993)
Warning: On a black background, we see the word "WARNING" in a large red LCD font as the generic warning text in white types out below.
FX/SFX: The warning text typing in.
Availability: Seen at the beginning of 1985-1986 tapes before the "Spinning Scimitar" logo begins. It is also seen at the end of 1986-1990 tapes after the "Other S From Hell" logo ends. This warning screen has been plastered on some 1993 tapes at the beginning after the "Gold Bars" logo ends. (the silent version in particular; it's currently unknown if it has appeared on any tapes with the infamously scary regular version).
Scare Factor: None, unless you want to count the fact it proceeds a scary logo. Regardless, this is one of the more unique FBI warnings out there.
2nd Warning (1985-2000)
Warning: On a black background, there are the words "NOTICE TO USER" and below it is the warning text.
Variant: On Starmaker Entertainment releases, the warning text is orange.
Availability: Seen on certain Simitar tapes from 1986-2000.
Scare Factor: Low.
3rd Warning (1990?)
Warning: On a black background, we see the red word "WARNING" flying in as the generic warning text in white types out below.
FX/SFX: The "WARNING" text flying in, the warning text typing in.
Scare Factor: Low; the word "WARNING" flying in may unnerve some.
4th Warning (1990-2000)
Warning: On a black background, we see the word "WARNING" in a tall red font that flashes. Underneath it, we see white text.
FX/SFX: The flashing red on "WARNING".
Cheesy Factor: Not as wordy as the previous warning, but the flashing red "WARNING" may cause seizures.
Variant: There is an early version of this warning where the red "WARNING" text is in a different font and is a bit narrower.
Availability: Rare. Seen on some tapes after the "Gold Bars" logo ends. It is also seen on some DVDs before the Simitar DVD logo begins.
Scare Factor: Medium to high; the rather tall font for "WARNING" and the flashing may be very unsettling.
