Blocken (Japan)

0.37b5 [Nicola Salmoria]

< Japan >


- When finishing game on the fourth course (you must select it just after pressing start on the begining of a game), after 2 ending screen, you got a cell testing screen instead of the programmer team credit (you must reset the game to get out of there). blocken137b8gre YMI

- Some of the enemy voice are totally wrong (like the purple bird having a girls voice, or the ship-robot saying "I'm the champion" when losing, etc...). blocken337b8gre YMI

- In Attract Mode, on the demonstration play (one versus another), after about every second the screen freezes for a while (about 5-10 frames), then continues normally then goes another freeze and continues and so on, until the demonstration leaves. Other attract mode "items" are unaffected by this. FPS counter stays a solid 60/60. blocken059gre_1 Kale

- Regardless of the course chosen, in the first intermission there's no road on the map. This happens on every play (not only the first). In the second and successive intermissions the road is present. blocken059gre_2 Kale

- Turn on flip screen then reset and the graphics are messed up. blocken0111u5gre Speedfreak
