I noticed that entries for Grandia's debugger was added to the wiki, and I remembered that Grandia actually had a sample version released a few months before the release of the game on the Sega Saturn. I decided to investigate a little bit and noticed that the game actually left it's DEBUG.BIN in the /GRANDIA/BIN file this time around. The file contains the following string " F:0006 GameArts Co.,Ltd.All rights reserved.". By changing the four digits to something other than 0006, you can produce some interesting results:




I changed 0006 to 0001 and replaced the file in the disk image with cd-replace.

I just wanted to point this out since the Sega Saturn version came out first and this is all from a version of the game that came well before the actual game was released. There might be some more goodies we can salvage from this version.

I'll update the post with more once I find something.

There is a Grandia Prelude for the PlayStation as well. Any major differences?

For convenience of making this trial version

The movie size, video quality, and framerate will be different between the trial version and the retail version.

In the retail version, you can enjoy movies with higher video quality.
