Mother 1+2 is a port of Mother and Mother 2 to the Game Boy Advance. While 2 got a few bug fixes (as well as inferior audio, which is inevitable with any SNES-to-GBA port), 1 had a whole slew of improvements, many of which came from its then-unreleased English version.
Assemble these and post comparison with used graphics.
0x6F57B4 contains a version of the game selection screen with English text for the prompts.
The remixed Mother cave theme is still present and still unused.
Mother 2 Debug Mode
Having more detail is always a good thing.
Specifically: What do the options do?
The easiest way to access the debug menu is by changing the the data at ROM offset 0x1F0-0x1F3 from A5 37 01 08 to 55 7A 00 08. Doing this will auto-boot the game to the debug menu. Press Up/Down to select an option, A to go into that option, and B to go back to the previous option. Here's a list of the menu options translated:
1. MAPセレクト１ = MAP SELECT 1
オネット = ONETT ツーソン = TWOSON DG谷 = DG VALLEY (Grateful Dead Valley, or Peaceful Rest Valley) ハッピー = HAPPY (Happy Happy Village) スリーク = THREEK (or Threed) ウィンターズ = WINTERS グレープ = GRAPE (Grapefruit Falls) サターンバレー = SATURN VALLEY
2. MAPセレクト２ = MAP SELECT 2
ドコドコ砂漠 = DUSTY DUNES DESERT フォーサイド = FOURSIDE FO地下倉庫から = FO[urside?] Underground Warehouse (the back room of Jackie's Café in Fourside) サマーズ = SUMMERS サマーズ海上 = SUMMERS SEA (when you're going to Scaraba) ランマ = DALAAM スカラビ = SCARABA ダンジョン男 = DUNGEON MAN
