The video above shows the translation an action. You can find out more about the patch and how to get it at The Rockman EXE Zone. Please, no emulation links in the comments! *waves finger*
Thanks for the tip, Django!
Fans have long compared the similarities between SEGA and Capcom's two iconic heroes, Sonic the Hedgehog and Mega Man. Both are blue heroes who fight evil scientists who send wave after wave of robot armies after them, and are frequently shown up by their red-hued allies. We could probably go on, but you get the gist of it; they're similar, but would anyone consider them interchangeable?
As you can see, YouTube user "Megamaniscrazy" did just that with Sonic's 20th anniversary game, Sonic Generations (hey, it's Mega Man's 25th, so why not?). There's less Buster-action than one would expect from the Blue Bombers, but it's overall still pretty amusing. Plus, Zero and Rayman get in on the action as well!
Incidentally, while the models for X and Zero look a little odd here, they do seem to match up rather well to the on-screen proportions they had in the Super NES games, do they not?
You can find more details here, though there doesn't seem to be a downloadable patch yet. Thanks for the tip, KKM!
Bypassing the menu, these hacks allow one to cycle through weapons and adapters with the start and select buttons (though I wonder how you'd get to your E-Tanks then). What's more, there is an option that lets you start the games with the weapons already acquired. This is particularly neat, albeit not tremendously useful, in Mega Man 2 and 3; allowing you to enter stages with the weapons from their respective Robot Masters, a feat not possible prior.
You can check out more videos like the above from other titles on the Press The Buttons article this is sourced from, as well as info on the hacking process. The hacks are not available to the public yet, but Guy is taking suggestions for the ideal means to distribute the modification. I might also ask him if he can do a hack that turns all the weapons to Metal Blade, and Mega Man has unlimited Metal Blades and he emits Metal Blades any time he moves and he's made of Metal Blades.
Thanks for the tip, Matt!
Once upon a time, almost a year ago (and before we widely employed the use of tags, apparently), we brought you a video which showed what would happen if Dr. Wily were to wise up and send all of his Mega Man 2 Robot Masters after Mega Man at once. Unfortunately for Wily, it still doesn't go in his favor. But... what if he were to instead send a whole platoon of just one Robot Master after the Blue Bomber?
Maybe Mega Man 2 is too hard for you. Maybe you can't get past Quick Man's laser beams, or Heat Man's lava pits, or you just can't beat Air Man. If that's the case, this hack may be for you. The Nintendo emulator FCEUX has a special scripting plugin called Lua, which allows for object manipulation like you see above. Aside from seeing enemy data, you can drag virtually any object; pulling enemies away or dragging Mega Man out of harm's way. Or, you can hit select and make Mega Man shoot frickin' laser beams out of his frickin' eyes. So much for Metal Blade!
Granted we don't condone emulation, but hey, maybe this is something Capcom would like to explore for those who said Mega Man 9 was too hard. Be sure to check out the Lua scripted Super Mario Bros and Super Mario Bros 3 too.
