Proto:F-Zero Maximum Velocity
This page details one or more prototype versions of F-Zero Maximum Velocity.
Two prototypes of the Chinese version were found within the iQue Netcard leaks at the paths netcard.7z\iqgba.tar\iQue-GBA\cvsroot\FZERO_for_GBA\rasheen\rasheen_1.bin (file modification date: 2006-03-24) and netcard.7z\iqgba.tar\iQue-GBA\cvsroot\F-Zero-One\F-Zero.gba (file modification date: 2006-05-22).
In the earliest build, "BIANCA CITY" is called "BA CITY" when starting a race. Also, the player's vehicle is invulnerable and automatically accelerates and drives very fast (around 600km/h). The player cannot use the brakes to slow down at all.
In the vehicle selection menu, the earliest build also features unique, localized text for the vehicle names. For example:
