- Dictator again, different video uploader.

I don't know who it is, but I think this is the best SFII World Warrior Hack I have ever seen in my life. These videos seem to look like the hack is 100% finished. Yet, there is little to no information of this particular hack in progress. I'm trying to do more research on the author(s) of this hack, but all I picked up are SNES hack versions, or older unfinished hacks like Yumeji's version. The videos above are the only things I can find about this particular Arcade SFII hack being in existence.

I'm not entirely sure why this hack being held back by a couple of people. I would really LOVE to play this hack. :)

Yes. To be exact, the way they were programmed in the original SFII World Warrior is much more different than the way you could play tas hem in SFII'CE. :)

Here's the info about the Boss differences for anyone who does NOT know.

* M.Bison/Vega (Dictator)
 - All attacks use fierce punch sound effect.
 - Psycho Crusher only hits once. Beginning frame lasts a little longer before flying forwards.
 - Scissor Kick/Knee Press is a single Fierce Kick attack rather than a special move.
 - Slide is used with standing light kick, instead of crouching strong/fierce kick.
 - Head Stomp links either into a Skull Dive, or a Reverse/Backwards kick, exclusive to SF2-WW.
 - Crouching Punch attack is missing recovery frames.

* Balrog/M.Bison (Boxer)
 - Has a stationary Turn Punch special move.
 - Standing Medium & Fierce Punch attacks are reversed as morre known from Champion Edition.
 - Missing a tripping attack.
 - Missing throw frames.

* Sagat
 - Standing punch animations are reversed.
 - Tiger Shot throw frames have shorter recovery times.
 - Missing a tripping attack.
 - Missing throw frames.

* Vega/Balrog (Claw)
 - Guarding has no stand frame.
 - Climbs on invisible cages on a stage.
 - All crouching kicks trip opponents.
 - Rolling Claw only rolls once, no matter which button is suppsoedly pressed.
 - When claw is attached, most stand/crouch attacks usually miss opponents when walking against their bodies.

So yea. A lot of M.Bison's attacks in this are World Warrior exclusive, which this hack will allow us to play the bosses this way. :)
It seems like it's unreleased hack from what I can tell from doing research. But I don't know what they're waiting for to release it. It looks finished to me.
