Unused Graphics

Nbajamarc-session logo.png
This "NBA Jam Session" logo can be found in the UG18/UJ18/UG23/UJ23 graphics ROMs. This was in consideration as an early title for the game, so this logo may have been intended for the title screen.

Nbajamarc-goal front.png
Immediately following the above logo is this front-facing basketball hoop. Originally, when performing certain actions, it was planned for the camera to change angles to face the hoop head-on. This graphic appears to be a remnant of the idea, and ended up being used in the Starring screen of the sequel.

Unused Palettes

At 581F4 and 582D0 in the Version 2.0 interleaved UG12/UJ12 program ROMs, these yellow and green skin color palettes can be found. In the file PALS.IMG in the source code, the yellow skin color has the name FL_B_p, while the green skin color has the name FL_G_p. The B and G in these files are extremely likely to stand for Bart Simpson and Godzilla, respectively, as they were at one point planned to be included as secret players.
