OK. Let me start by saying I could not believe my eyes when this happened.
THIS IS REAL
THIS IS NOT A JOKE
NOT A JOKE
I accidentally entered a code on my Arcade 3S setup (Supergun + TV) that lets you fight Gill every single stage. I was fiddling around with my joystick and the Start button didn’t seem to be working. I hit it several times. I checked my wiring for problems, looked up, and all of a sudden:
It was First stage: Gill. 2nd stage: Gill. 3rd Stage: Gill. 4th Stage, I tried to switch characters after losing (to Dudley), and it went back to normal opponents. So, switching characters seems to nullify the code.
I started out as IBUKI somehow. I don’t recall even seeing the character select screen.
I HAVE NO IDEA HOW I DID THIS. But now we know it’s definitely in the game.
To clarify: this is ARCADE 3rd Strike, Japanese version A.
