There are several difficulty changes made in the US version of the game compared to the Japanese version of the game. Notably the US version is much harder/frustrating/punishing.

If a set is ever created for the SegaCD variant, I just wanted to suggest that it be based off the original Japanese version, and Supper's edit of the US version of the game which is just reverting the changes to be identical to the Japanese version:

If anyone needs it, the following is the US Patched version's hashes of Version 3 (2/24/17) ISO file. (WAV files are identical)

I will be working on a set for this alongside and . A plan will be posted soon.

I second that suggestion. any sega cd cheevs should be based on the unworked patches since the american versions were changed to make them much more difficult and much less fun.

No worries. We decided to go with the Unworked version of the game.

Renewing the set reservation on this. Hopefully it won't be much longer before it's finished.
