(BUR) Copyright check (added 05.10.07):
As most of latest Konami games, this one contains some sort of copy protection. At the game start, the program performs a self-test for presence and integrity of the CHR bank with copyright tiles, part of copyright message screen for presence "(c) KONAMI 1991" string, and finally part of code for checking first one string. ;) If tests fails, the game switches to the "hardest" mode. Regular difficulty of the game increased automatically up to value 5. Although the most of difficulty related tests are depends on zero/non zero values, at least one could be affected with a higher values than 5.
