Trivia

There are a number of differences between the original arcade version of the game and its pc port, which include:

Missing frames of background animation.

statues on Bison's level can't be broken

moves that needed all three punch or kick buttons to be pressed at the same time can now be executed with just the medium and strong buttons.

Bison's body dissapears after the Akuma/Bison cutscene (originally he remained on screen while you fought).

and the screen was resized (the arcade screen is 384 Wide x 240 High while the pc screen is 320 Wide x 200 High). This does not mean that the graphics were scaled down, they were in fact kept intact, so you end up with a smaller play area, and bigger looking sprites.

Also, the german version of the game has all the blood removed.
