A prototype of Namco Museum Vol. 2 for the PlayStation.

Notes

  • English localization prototype. Comparable to the final US build. All files are the same file size, time stamp, and count.
  • Contains thousands of ECC/EDC errors but they don't affect the files on the disc for some reason.
  • Only three files have changed:
    • DIPSW\DIPSW.EXE has "Registerat reception. New card?". In the final, it reads "Insert a registered Memory Card ?".
    • MUSEUM\MUSEUM.EXE only contains two byte changes in comparison to the US final.
    • MUSEUM\FRO.TIP only contains a couple of non-error byte changes in comparison to the US final.
  • Because the timestamps all match the final US build, despite these changes, an accurate build date cannot be determined. The build date is based on what's physically written on the disc.
  • Miscellaneous Notes:
    • Game is emulatable: Yes (as of April 17, 2021).
    • Game contains dongle protection: No.
    • Game contains debugging symbols: N/A
    • Dump was originally scrambled: No
