I’ve noticed some differences between running special in Jap and Us region arcade modes specifically with the violence soft dip settings. Was hoping someone could shed some light on this.

In Japan / arcade mode the soft dip violence setting provides 3 levels (1,2,3) 3 being the maximum violence.

In us/ arcade modes;however, we are presented with 6? As the violence setting is now called “Violence/SP”
1/without (white blood, dumbed down fatal)
2/without (white blood, full fatal)
3/without (red blood, full fatal)
1/with (white blood, dumbed down fatal)
2/with (white blood, full fatal)
3/with (red blood, full fatal)

Not sure what the with and without is referring to as I performed a fatality at level 3/without and got the full animation.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
