Really? I only found PAL releases of Altered Beast (Activision) and Super Hang-On (Electric Dreams). In case you have the USA adfs of these two games, please can you zone it?

@amighista: Sorry for asking the question but do you have any suspicion/information that the NTSC releases of those games may have additional or different content than their PAL counterparts?

Perhaps force playing the PAL releases in 60hz will give overall the same result as you would expect from the NTSC releases?

I might be wrong but i remember Super Hang-On USA to be without that ugly intro screen present in the PAL version, while Altered Beast USA was released in only 1 disk, contrary to the 2 disks PAL release. About your second question i see your point and you are totally right, my request is mostly for collecting purpose and sentimental value.

Ugly intro screen; you talking about this?

Personally I think it's quite cool

I hope in 1 disk version they didn't remove Altered Beast ending as this may be the best part of game.

Fair enough, for a 1988 game I thought it was cool

It feels a bit too amateurish to my taste, i much prefer the one present in the ST version: http://www.mobygames.com/game/atari-...eShotId,74103/

Interestingly, that Amiga intro screen seems PAL optimized, but the game itself benefits from being played at 60Hz.

2 disk Altered beast runs fine in NTSC mode, doesn't even fill the screen either. Don't think there is a 1 disk cracked ADF avail for this game.
