A late prototype of Midway Arcade Treasures 3 for the GameCube, released on Feb 13, 2023.

General Differences

To do:
Check for any Debug functions
  • Disc Title is GS rather than Midway Arcade Treasures 3
  • Many files on the disc differ when compared to retail
  • A couple .bat files are leftover
  • opening.bnr.bak is a leftover from Midway Arcade Treasures 2

Title and Extra Content Menus

  • With EXTRA CONTENT highlighted, it shows Super Offroad previews on the cabinet screen, rather than the credits
  • Selecting CREDITS in the EXTRA CONTENT menu does nothing, as the file credits.bik is not present
  • EDDY is spelled as EDDIE
  • Different background, which is not animated

Pre-Game Menus

For some of the games, there are a fair bit of differences found in these menus:

  • More window transparency
  • Fonts are really blurry
  • The highlighted option was darker, and changed to a brighter blue in the final
  • Lacks the OPTIONS text in the upper right
  • Game Setting was changed to Game Settings
  • Autosave defaults to Off
  • Game Settings or Controller Setup menus usually have different defaults and options. For example, in Super Offroad, the Women's Clothing option defaults to Bikinis and it lacks the Continues setting
  • Most games lack any Bonus Content, simply saying HISTORY
  • Badlands, Race Drivin, and Super Offroad load the game before the Press start to play text appears, rather than after pressing start

Some pre-game menus are closer to the final's design but the Game Settings or Controller Setup menus usually have different options and defaults.

In Game Menus

  • Some control screens had minor differences to the GameCube controller graphic, plus an option to select configurations
  • When exiting some games, the autosave window doesn't appear. For other games, when it appears, it dims the screen less and says No, disable auto-save rather than just No
