Cyber Troopers Virtual-On: Oratorio Tangram M.S.B.S. Ver. 5.4, known as Dennou Senki Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram M.S.B.S. Ver. 5.4 (電脳戦機バーチャロン オラトリオ・タングラム M.S.B.S. Ver.5.4) in Japan is an update to Dennou Senki Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram M.S.B.S. Ver. 5.2 and one of three major revisions of Cyber Troopers Virtual-On: Oratorio Tangram. Ver. 5.4 is often considered to be the de facto version of Oratorio Tangram - it was originally released for Sega Model 3 hardware in 1999, then ported to the Sega Dreamcast later in the year.
Strictly speaking, the Dreamcast version is known internally as Cyber Troopers Virtual-On: Oratorio Tangram M.S.B.S. Ver. 5.45, as although it is based on Ver. 5.4, it contains some stages from the original Cyber Troopers Virtual-On and can be played in Ver. 5.2 mode once the option is unlocked.
Ver. 5.4 is much the same game as Ver. 5.2 but addresses perceived balance issues among other minor changes. It is also the first version to be released outside of Japan, although the Dreamcast port was not released in Europe. It was followed by a final revision, Cyber Troopers Virtual-On Oratorio Tangram M.S.B.S. Ver. 5.66
