Neighbours From Hell is a console remake of the first two games that were only released on Windows, combining the story of both games in one, and bringing a lot of new stuff to the table.

Build Information

Both platforms have a bldver.bin and cntver.bin file, showing the build number and compilation date. The Xbox version was finished first, in late October 2004, and then later in early December, the port for the GameCube was finished.











Revisional Differences

Since the GameCube version was finished later than the Xbox version, it contains several bug fixes, potentially newly introduced bugs and some minor changes.

Impossible Mode Level Icons

On Xbox, when a level is completed in Impossible Mode, it turns back to showing the level as locked. On GameCube it shows the regular unlocked level icons for all the completed levels, even though you can't play them after finishing in Impossible Mode anyway.

Vacation Clothing at Home

NFHCXBOX-FIN SUNNY-VacationClothing.png

One of the actions in the level Sunny, that being cutting the neighbors parasol, changes Woody's clothing to the vacation clothing while cutting.

Impossible Mode Crash

After Impossible Mode is complete, you won't be able to select and play any level in that game mode. Though the game still for some reason allows you to go in the menu, and if you press A, it'll crash the game.
