USA v02.00(14/06/2004), Enable INTC Spin Detection, Enable Wait Loop Detection, mVU Flag Hack, MTVU, Most, if not all, songs are playable (haven't played all of them yet.) Maintains 60FPS with no dips (the game is not GPU-intensive, as the only thing rendered during a song is the fretboard. The background is a video.), None that I know of.
