Unused Graphics

In the Japanese version, a large '91 is stored with the title screen graphics, suggesting it was going to be part of the game's title. It is styled similarly to the one used in the previous game, Moe-Pro! '90: Kandou Hen.

Sound Test

In the Japanese version, at the main title screen menu (do not enter any options), hold A + B on Controller 2 and press Start on Controller 1 to trigger a sound test. Here, use Controller 1 to listen to music and Controller 2 to listen to sounds. This cheat is provided by the game in one of the messages at the ending credits, mentioned below.

Due to code redesign in the US version, this cheat doesn't work anymore at the main title screen menu, it will be treated as entering the OPTIONS mode no matter what option was selected before. Instead, at the title screen, you must select the PLAY option and press Start or A. Once the next menu opens, hold A + B on Controller 2 and press Start or A on Controller 1.

This code is unlockable and given to you in the ending credits screents by 'TAKE-1" programmer. See section below.

Unused Music

All of the music from Bases Loaded 3 is still in the game. Use the patch code 829B:??:24 to hear the unused music on the title screen, with ?? replaced with a hex number between 1C and 22.

Credits

In the North American release of Bases Loaded 4, after you complete the game, you are treated to a one-screen ending. However, when you beat the Japanese version, Moe-Pro! Saikyou Hen, you get the same ending screen, but there are game credits following. There are five screens, each with pictures of the developers and their own quotes. This is similar to Rambo for the NES, which had credits in its Japanese release, but were taken out of its US release.

Tatsuya is an alias for Tatsuya Nishimura, who left Tose shortly after the development of this game to work for Capcom. S.M is Satoshi Matsushita, who worked on several other Tose games. Some of these developers would return in Super Bases Loaded. However in that game, both versions have credits with quotations, but the staff pictures are absent.

The programmer "TAKE-1" is referring to the sound test cheat code that can be done on the game's title screen (see above).
