Quick access to Hard-difficulty

There's a quicker way to access the Hard-difficulty. One that doesn't require you to finish the game on a lower difficulty level first. Use the Windows registry editor (c:\windows\regedit.exe) to view the system registry branch [HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Capcom\RESIDENT EVIL2].

This branch contains a registry key called "Install Flag". Change the hexadecimal value of this key to 000007ad. This change makes Hard-difficulty immediately accessible. This one is handy to all those veteran players who have uninstalled and then re-installed RE2 on their system and want to play on Hard-difficulty NOW and not later.

Secret Rebecca's Picture

Just like some common versions of Resident Evil 2, you can get this secret picture. In the Police Station, go to the S.T.A.R.S. office, then check Wesker's desk for the note ''It's trashed. Someone must have searched the desk...'' to be shown 50 times. Then you will get the Film D. Bring it to the Dark Room below the stairs and you take ''Recruit'' picture of Rebecca.
