HELL YES I love this game. Its a shame this game adds the extra lock options has unlockables though. I definitely prefer to play like that. If anything I'll keep a extra score for it as an aside for shits and giggles.

I assume the STV version of Terra Diver is accepted as well?

Absolutely. It should be identical to the Saturn versions.

I noticed something very odd while playing Otokuyo tonight on my newly acquired Model 1 Japanese Saturn. I was playing on Arcade Difficulty (5) as I usually do on my Model 2 US Saturn and the game was noticeably more difficult. More enemies, the enemies were more aggressive, there were more bullets and the bullets were faster. Even bosses were starting patterns they normally don't unless I have the difficulty set to 6 or 7.

I erased any saved data from the Action Replay 4 in 1 menus and tried again with the Action Replay unplugged. I thought maybe I was experiencing some kind of cheat device deterrent. :twisted: But that wasn't the case. It was still much more difficult than what I had experienced when playing on AC difficulty in the past on my US Model 2 Saturn.

So I hooked up the Model 2, erased all saved data and started on AC difficulty. Just as I suspected, the game was quite a bit easier.

Can anyone else test this? Is it a difference between Japanese and other region systems, or a difference between Model 1 & 2 Saturns and not region specific at all? Is non-Otokuyo affected?

I have experienced little differences in loading and game play between Models 1 & 2 with other games in the past, but this is the first time I have seen differences this extreme.

I also posted this on shmups.

I've only ever played the original JP release on a JP saturn, so can't comment. I've played the STV version of Terra Diver as well and don't recall significant differences between the two.

Maybe once enough scores are posted, it'll have to be separated...

How is the shmups forums thread separated?

That's just it. So far I appear to be the only one who has noticed and commented on this behavior. I posted in the shmups strategy thread for Souky as well as in NeoGAF's Saturn appreciation thread (bottom of page 7). Shmups is kind of slow going (it's an old game), but the GAF thread kind of exploded for a bit. We should have test results from different MAME and Saturn regions soon enough to confirm.

If true, it would definitely mean hardware region would need to be posted along with scores.

Then again, it could just be a weird quirk with either my US or JP the Saturn. However, given Souky's track record when it comes to hardware region differences, I just don't think that is the case.
