Version differencesAlthough the game has been ported around, there are some differences between versions.
The PS2 version has quite some problems, some parts of the game are extremely slow and there are transparency clipping issues.
In the Dreamcast version, mushrooms spawn random items, Melfice's regenerator is invincible and the Millenia Zap! bug from the PS2 version doesn't occur.
The PC version has a setup program called Gmconfig which lets you assign the keys and resolution. Also on PC, only CD2 is the game disc, CD1 is solely used for installing the game.
