A prototype of Vigilante 8: Second Offense for the Dreamcast.

Notes

  • No logos, opening screens, sequences, etc. It goes straight to the main menu
  • Main menu itself is different
    • No music
    • Different button symbols (for all menus)
    • Different spinning cursor (tire instead of 2-faced smiley)
    • No flip-away transition when making a selection in the menus
  • Options menu is also different
    • Selections are simple text (not on plates)
    • Different background behind the title logo & selections
    • Lineage portraits have the central 3 boxes filled with portraits and they're colorful (related to unlocks?)
    • "VMU" is "Memory Card", and no "Back Story" selection
    • Swapped buttons between going back and main menu (although it is redundant, in general). Navigation buttons for various menus are generally different.
  • In 1 Player Mode, Quest and Arcade have swapped positions
    • Quest and Survival are not accessible
  • Placeholder names, like "Harbor Level" in the stage select. Also, the interstate "V8" sign stays in the same place.
  • Lots of differences in the character select: portraits, stats, names. One portrait even somewhat repeats
    • Selected characters have no voice clips
  • There are no loadings screens; instead, the current screen freezes as the next part of the game is loading (such as entering the gameplay)
