    TIPS AND TRICKS
    • Time-release bypass: You must have access to the machine's test mode to use these codes (note: There may be 2 test modes available on the machine. It's not the Service Mode dip switch).

    Enable Gourai Early: It normally takes 200 hours for Gourai to become available. If you have access to the machine's test mode, you can enable Gourai in less than 5 minutes.
    • Enter the Sound & Voice menu in test mode.
    • Input this code with the Player 2 controls: Left, Left, Right, Right, Guard, A, B (a sound will indicate that the code was correctly entered).
    • Exit test mode without any other modifications.
    Gourai will now be the middle character on the character select screen.

    Enable Dark Pulsion, Dixen EX, and Wise Duck Olrosso early. It normally takes 600 hours for Dark Pulsion, Dixen EX, and Wise Duck Olrosso to become available.
    If you have access to the machine's test mode, you can enable Dark Pulsion, Dixen EX, and Wise Duck Olrosso in less than 10 minutes.
    • Follow the steps in the 'Enable Gourai Early' code if you haven't already done so.
    • Enter the Color menu in test mode.
    • Input this code with the Player 2 controls: Down, Down, Up, Up, B, A, Guard (a sound will indicate that the code was correctly entered).
    • Exit test mode without any other modifications.
    Dark Pulsion, Dixen EX, and Wise Duck Olrosso will be available to the right of Rafaga, but will only be usable in Hero Challenge mode.
