    Eh, this face demo was available in Japan for anyone. Its part of the What's Shenmue disc. Its not at all rare. Look for an iso of What's Shenmue.

    I noticed in the video you have posted that the hair is quite glitchy. I'm guessing this is because you are using emulation rather than real hardware. This effect does not happen on real hardware.

    As always, thanks for sharing @Laurent!

    The fact that this comes from a GD-R, with only 1 copy known to be in public hands makes this an interesting and definitely a rare feat. Also as Laurent pointed out, the build is dated after What's Shenmue. So who know's what else is being stored on this disc....? Hopefully with the help of some crafty members here we'll figure out soon enough :)

    After? The build date is actually one day before the released version, at least the one that's in TOSEC. So this is technically a prototype.

    There are some code changes in 1ST_READ and some of the map info scene files got changed. One of the sprite files got changed as well. Not sure what these changes mean though...
