Unused Sega Art

The 1988 Sega logo art can be seen in VRAM, after the 1989 Sega logo screen, but after a split-second, it gets overwritten by numbers.

Hidden Text

This string is found in the notes section of the ROM header, only in REV00:

programmed by waka,hama thanks OHE R/D#1

"waka" and "hama" are likely Masahiro Wakayama and Takahiro Hamano, respectively.

High Scores

Hmmm...
To do:
Figure out the rest.

The default high score table uses developer names. The "Beginner" course seems to use surnames, while "Junior" uses given names.

Rank Beginner Junior Potential Developer
1st SAE HIR
2nd MAE KUM
3rd HAS MAS
4th KAM CHI Chikako Kamatani
5th WAK MAS Masahiro Wakayama
6th HAM TAK Takahiro Hamano
7th UNK GER

The other two tables may be for "Special Thanks". The names are the same on both lists, except for the last.

Rank Senior Expert Potential Developer
1st KAN KAN
2nd OHE OHE
3rd KAG KAG
4th MIZ MIZ Matsuhide Mizoguchi
5th SAT SAT Sat Man
6th TAK TAK
7th MIY MAK

NAO

Entering your name as "SEX" on the high score screen will change it to "NAO".

Revision Differences

Controls

The steering controls are less sensitive in REV01, so the handling of the bike is much tighter. In REV00, it's very easy to drift all the way to the other side of the road when making a turn. In REV01, it takes more time to move from one side of the road to the other, so you're less likely to drift off-course.

Graphics

A couple billboards on the side of the road were also changed. These are easiest to see on the "Expert" course (Europe).

REV00 REV01
SuperHangOn-Morobare-REV00.png SuperHangOn-Soroban!!-REV01.png

"Morobare", an obvious parody of Marlboro cigarettes, was changed to "Soroban!!". This was likely due to the lawsuit Philip Morris had filed against Sega in 1991 for parodying its brand in Super Monaco GP, which lead to an accusation of marketing tobacco to children.

REV00 REV01
SuperHangOn-Bridalstone-REV00.png SuperHangOn-Genesis-REV01.png

"Bridalstone", a parody of Bridgestone, was changed to "Genesis" with a pointing hand. The outline of the original design can still be seen.
