    And to bring us back on topic, I have started the Saturn Street Fighter journey!
    Street Fighter Alpha: Warriors' Dreams/Hidden content - Sega Retro
    I am sort of trusting that Akuma can be permanently unlocked as described, whereas I can cheat my way to beating Bison and getting Dan to challenge me quite easily (curiously there didn't appear to be any taunt requirement like the internet says, I just won 6 fights in a row on hardest difficulty and he showed up), getting all those super combo finishes will be a pain!

    EDIT - hmm, but on a second high difficulty playthrough with the save reset, Dan didn't challenge, so maybe there is more to it. How annoying. Testing continues.

    The easiest method to fight Dan in Alpha 1 is to have the same end-of-match win quote appear five times in a row. You can influence this by holding a button after the last round was won. After the 5th time, Dan will challenge you next stage.

    Thanks, and indeed, if I'd just read a well researched FAQ like this one (instead of trying to pick apart the usual confusing cheat pages), I'd have discovered that I hit the third(!) method of getting Dan, there's a random chance it happens if you fight Adon at the right time on the hardest difficulty. But yes, I need to include the code for forcing a specific win quote as well as fleshing out the various ways of getting Dan. Then that should be everything covered for that game.

    Out of curiosity, did you try out the CPS Changer 'ura' mode? Must admit that until I went down that internet rabbit hole, the only thing I knew about it was that it was a home version of capcom's cps1 arcade hardware. The history around it is really interesting.

    I used to play that version of SFZ when it was first added to Callus (before even XOR-based CPS-2 emulation), and used those codes myself. That's how I remembered what they did, since I thought it was odd the 'full character select' modified the 3rd row to have 5 spaces centered, rather than 4 with the split being along the center line of the screen.

    Road Rash CD does indeed appear to have nothing, but Road Rash 3 has three title screen codes that give you a bit of money, better bikes and skipping to level 2 or 3 which are actually real. I was sure given how weirdly specific they were that they were made up, but they all work.

    Road Rash CD is a very strange version, basically Road Rash 3 graphics mixed with a CD sound track (based on the 3do version apparently, though I've never played that one) and some low quality FMVs. A classic mega cd quick and dirty port. Although thinking about it, I might quickly try the Road Rash 3 codes on it, given that it's the same engine just with fancy sound.

    EDIT - 4 title screen codes, and no they do not work on the cd version, it doesn't have 2 player support at all!
