Both the original arcade version and the console version have been patched.

The first version got up to v1.03. Its most significant balance change was removing Mature's infinite.

The console version was patched following the release of EX Kyo and Iori. EX Iori vs Benimaru had some character freezing glitch under very specific circumstances. EX Kyo's EX R.E.D. Kick would freeze opponents if they tried to command grab him at just the right moment. Never tested how easy this was to pull off.

As far as I know, Climax removed Billy's invincibility on HD activation mid-combo.

In summary, all the game-breaking stuff has been fixed (as far as I know), and Climax doesn't have any significant changes (again, as far as I know).

Yeah, Climax fixed a few bugs in the console ver.

Here's a partial list of changes:

There's also a complete change list (scan from arcadia magazine) posted somewhere here in this forum.

Also, in any case, a PC version should be the closest to arcade, since kofxiii board is practically a PC.

I was hoping one of the beta testers would speak up about the netcode, but no word yet... I hope that's not a bad sign, you'd think one of them would be enthusiastic about sharing positive news. Either that or the beta testers aren't at a level to tell what's good and bad netcode. Or maybe they're not allowed to talk about it.  :(
Kick, punch, it's all in the method. Not mother approved but totally kid tested.

^ I'm guessing the beta testers are under some NDA...even if they did speak they probably wont be honest about it to not deter players from buying it. I guess the true test will be when the game drops...I have a feeling that it won't be good again.

Or maybe the beta testers are just generic valve engineers who didn't care much about kof or fighting games in general.

Those kinds of testers just make sure the game works properly, nothing to do with the feature set of the game.
