I think that playthorugh of the beta on Twitch actually reveals all the tricks and also how you solve the game. Of course this version is slightly different.

That's true. If you want to see that playthrough you can see it here:

This is of the original hard version which had a couple of bugs which have since been fixed and I have moved a couple of things around, but the overall hack remains very similar.

Just found another minor issue, which needs to be implemented. You know how sometimes the heart container animation doesn't work. This is due to all definitions for the heart containers are actually false:
current values are 26 in hex or 3E in hex, which corresponds to 38 and 62 in dec. Both are regarded as LiarHeart and MuteHeart, which I actually don't know why were they programed, but it seems that they actually give a heartcontainer in the Japan version. The actual correct value for a heart Container is chest prize 63 in dec is 3F in hex. So that's easy fixable.

I'll add this to the list of changes from release candidate v1 to v2.

I actually knew about the heart containers, and chose to use those ones rather than the ones which fully heal you (like the one in Sanctuary in vanilla). I had the option of both.

The ones I've used are the type you receive after boss fights, which increase your maximum health by 1 and current health by 1, but don't refill you to maximum health. I felt these were better suited to a Kaizo!

I was wondering where the difference is.
In this case they must be all put to 3E (get container and no helth refill), since 3F is (get container and health refill), however some values are still 26, which need to be changed to 3E. But there are no 3F values, so that's ok.

So here are the types of heart containers:

1.) hex value 26= heart container which does not travel up from the chest, but rather stays on place and goes directly to Monologue/dialog. If no monologue, like in Kaizo, there basically is no animation, and in vanilla game this type actually also refills your health.

2.) hex value 3E= heart container which travels normally from the chest up (animation), usually received from the defeated boss, thus no monologue at all. This container does not refill your health.

3.) hex value 3F= heart container which travels normally from the chest up (animation), planed to be received in a chest, it does thus has normal monologue message. This container also refills your health.

So to sum it up, the 3E is correct value for Kaizo.
