Developer / Filler Text

Like ESPN National Hockey Night and ESPN Speedworld, this includes some goofy filler text.Starts at 5DF4F:

This is the way we pad the ROM, pad the ROM, pad the rom...
Boy, you sure are wasting lots o' bytes.  Learn to be
more frugal.
Still more space to pad? Why not add another sound or two.
Youd think that game programmers today would be more careful
about using all available ROM space, but I guess not. Four
score and seven years ago yatta yatta yatta. Who the heck is
looking at this anyway. This is a ROM, no one sees this, WHO
ARE YOU, WHAT ARE YOU DOING HERE? Quit snooping around and
play this great game.

This is followed by text from a proprietary development tool. This doesn't appear in the other games:

~BPC-LINKB v1.8                   (by John Rehling/Mark Lyons)   July 1, 1993
~WUsage:     ~Ylinkb ~Y linkfile  ~y[ > file.BUG ]~w
Links and optimizes BIN files for S-NES games.  Tries to arrange
the BIN files to make best use of the 32K blocks.  Generates a BIN
file containing all data, and an INC file containing equates for
all of the included files.
~WStructure:~w The linkfile contains the following information (line-by-line):
~b Output filename
Base starting page
Files to link & optimize (one per line followed by label)~w
Blank lines and comment lines starting with '~G;~w' may be included.
Each filename must be followed by the label to use in the INC file.

Regional Differences

Title Screen

International Japan
Flags More flags

The Japanese flag replaces Canada's in the JP version of the game.

Announcers

International Japan
Flags More flags

The announcer was localized (whatever that means) in the Japanese game. The tie, desk side texture, and hand shading were also changed.
