Graphics

Can be seen with the image modifier 8075C41B ???? (U), which replaces DK's model; the last two are ROM offsets.

  • 008D: banana cam photo with garbled pineapple texture. Model may or may not be used, but the texture isn't-- it's a blown-up copy of one of the pineapple frames with no alpha transparency

Reference Stuff

(.bins refer to the decompressed game files)

  • Text dump
  • Asset map (mainly for kiosk/final comparison, but the text sheet covers all versions)
  • 0FB42C.bin is DK Arcade-- interestingly no Ikegami Tsushinki text
  • 1010FD.bin is Jetpac
  • ScriptHawk: main, flags, docs
    • Contains lots of interesting technical info for all versions of the game

Other

  • Some code-ish stuff in 0D4554.bin (but no actual text)
  • Unused SFX from E3
  • Sudden cutscene view when walking through a shop's exit
    • Actually due to lack of a loading zone (the same thing can be seen in other exits when changing the game mode to another value), but still... why would there be a loading zone there? Seems to indicate the shops could be freely roamed at one point
