I am asking about japanese ROM/Beecard Jet Set Willy.

There are several differences between Hudson Soft release and original Software Projects Jet Set Willy. Some differences in Hudson Soft release:

-original title screen removed, now there reads just "Jet Set Willy" in white letters, no music, no scroll text etc.
-in-game music is changed, now it plays easily recognizable If "I was a rich man".
-Monty Python game over screen removed, there reads only "game over" which does not even flash
-game over screen does not return to title screen, but game starts again when you press space
-sprites are removed, now all enemies are software sprites, can be easily seen when enemy touches Willy
-game runs slower, probably because game now uses software sprites only.
-jumping noise is changed, now it´s more like key click-click-click-click....
-jumping key is changed
-now you will hear key CLICK noise playing non-stop on the background when you press walking key
-flashing background shapes doesn´t flash anymore, in example the church cross is not flashing in "First Landing"
-room names are deleted
-now borders doesn´t change colour anymore when you enter a new room, now borders will stay grey all the time

There are way too many lives added also, spoiling the game. I guess some hacker has added them to make game easier.

My question is, could somebody Jet Set Willy ROM or Beecard owner please confirm, are way-too-many-lives added in ROM or Beecard version?

Where are the owners of Jet Set Willy Beecard? I know many Jet Set Willy Beecards have been sold during years, so there should be at least one owner among MSX Resource Center members. Smile

If those extra lives are added by the hacker, some cartridge dumper should be interested to get original Beecard version dumped, if original Beecard version doesn´t have those extra lives. Smile

I had got the bee pack cartridge until 1992 when I sold it.

It was a bad game, I played it a few times and I don't remember too much. But, yes the song was "I was a rich man" and Jet Set Willy title without graphics, very sad.

Thank you jltursan! Smile Please let me know the results! Smile

Sure, graphically it is not the finest MSX game, but for me it still has it´s own charm, there´s so many things to do and many different things to see. Smile

I have dumped my Jet Set Willy and it is the same that in GoodMSX. It has 15 lives, click sounds, etc...
