Notes

  • Built one month before the final US build (the first retail build).
  • Titlescreen has "Pre-release alpha build 36" written on the top right corner of the screen.
  • The Options menu has a different lay out. The final build contains a Control Option sub menu with sound settings at the root of the menu, as well as Cheat menu. In this build, Control and Sound are under different sub menus and there's a Display submenu that was removed from the final which allows you to change the screen's aspect ratio. This build is also lacking any cheat menu.
  • This build gives you the option to choose from Training, Act 1 - Louisiana, Act 2 - Argentina, and Act 3- Germany when starting a new game. In the final, you can only choose from Training and Act 1 - Louisiana at the start of the game.
  • Different loading screen. The final game uses a unique background image while the game is loading the stage. In this build, it uses the same image from the title screen and all of the other menus. The loading bar is green in this build and red in the final.
  • When starting the Training level, you are given control at the start in this build. You have to walk up to Mynce to begin training. In the final build, the dialog/tutorial begins as soon as the level starts up.
