So, the difference is the title screen ("E") and the Konami logo animation?

Can you dump that European version?

Anyway, what makes you think it's European and not some older version of the Japanese version? Or perhaps even a beta version of the Japanese version? (As it seems to have a bug and an older logo screen.)

Hello!
Don't know how wrong is to bump such an old thread (sorry!), and probably it's not that interesting, but...
I realized that the Italian pirated version of Antarctic Adventure is indeed based on the European version of the game. Everything matches - apart from the Konami logos and the map GFX brutally violated.

I don't know if the European proper dump mentioned by @Guillian was ever shared, but you can basically check it
here {mod: link removed}.
You may also obtain a (messy) European .rom just by removing the .cas pirate loader (you can also phone the pirate: he put phone number and address visible with a HEX editor:D)
Skilled hands may also re-integrate the garbled GFXs, I guess - or maybe there's no need for it as the proper dump is floating around somewhere...

Thanks!

I see you are "only" referering to different versions of the ROM "software", but I do have 2 different versions of the Antartic Adventure "hardware" as well, this measn the look&feel of the cartridget itself it´s a little bit different, one of them used the most recent form-factor with the konami logo on then backside of the cartridge, while other one is plain, However the box, insert and user manuals are exactly the same ones...
