Yeah I don't know. I got the 1CC a few days ago on the psx port at default difficulty. It wasn't too much of a task. I suppose I should just try to clear the game in MAME now , and make note of any differences.
I believe that's the same w/ the J-version, too. It's been a while.
And yes, it's not a hard 1CC at all. There's a few tricks you need on the last stage. Canon Dancer is much more punishing, but if you memorize the few bits, and take Stage 4 (I think it is) slow, you can do it. Awesome game(s).

Yeah, I could have sworn that the Japanese Playstation copy of Strider 2 that I owned 10 years ago had the printing on the discs swapped, but the Japanese copy I own now has the correct printing on each disc.
I've played Cannon Dancer a few times. I've played the actual PCB once. It's on my list of games that I'd like to take some serious cracks at.
