Hmmm...
To do:
Document the prototype version.

A western-themed shooter similar to the arcade game Blood Bros. Well, I say western themed, but there's huge robots. Probably best not to ask, honestly.

Debug Mode

Debug Mode

Starting at SNES address $02DDDC are the broken remains of a debug mode. Unfortunately, it wasn't updated along with the rest of the game during development, so as a result, most jumps to subroutines in other banks are to invalid addresses. However, it is possible to at least partially restore it.

Hmmm...
To do:
This section under construction.

Debug mode instructions:

  • D-Pad: Highlight an option, change index values.
  • L + R + Select: Exit menu and submenus(?)

BGM TEST

Press Start or X to play a song. This version only goes up to song $10, unlike the music test in the option menu that has a max limit of $17.

SE TEST

Press Start or X to play a sound effect. The max selection is $7F, but sounds only exist up to $43.

OBJ TEST 0, OBJ TEST 1

OBJ TEST

It's currently unknown what, if any, differences exist between "OBJ TEST 0" and "OBJ TEST 1".

Instructions:

  • D-Pad Up or Down: increase or decrease "No," (animation frame).
  • Hold B, move D-Pad: move crosshairs.
  • Hold X, press Up or Down: increase or decrease "PAL" (palette) index.
  • Hold R, press Up or Down: change "FILE" on the right side of screen.
  • Hold L, press Up or Down: change "FILE" index on the left side of the screen.

Unused Graphics

Careful, you'll lose an eye.
This page or section needs more images.
There's a whole lotta words here, but not enough pictures. Please fix this.

A graphic of the word SAMPLE is stored alongside the title screen.

Hidden Text

These developer credits are located at 0x1BF in all versions of the game. Similar text can be found in other Natsume games for the SNES.
