Mega Man 3 Improvement

Hack of Mega Man 3

Description:

This is an improvement patch for Mega Man III/Rockman 3. It has many improvements to the game + MANY bugfixes that existed originally in MM3.

Anyone is free to use this for their own Mega/Rock 3 hacks, and any new ones in the future.

Please only use the appropriate patch depending on what ROM your using. The megaman3 patch is only for the English version and the rockman3 is only for the Japanese ROM.

The author will not list all the changes here, they are already listed in the readme. A youtube video was uploaded also to demonstrate many of the changes. Please see the “Video Comments.txt” for the link to the youtube video and to use as a guide to note the changes you’ll see demonstrated.

An ASM file was used from the Japanese ROM hacker named Puresabe, known best for Rockman 4 MI (Minus Infinity). It implements some gameplay physics mods that he presented to me. NOTE: It already has been applied to both English and Japanese versions of the patch.

The ultimate version of Megaman 3

Reviewed By: Satoshi_Matrix on 15 Nov 2012

As a huge Megaman fan, I am delighted to see this excellent hack.

While not a new levels/graphics hack, this one aims to fix virtually everything that was wrong with the original Megaman 3. Bugs, glitches, debug leftovers and general errors in the code have been ironed out, and some useful general changes have been added to improve the game. 

There are small graphical fixes instances with parallax scrolling, including that weird glitch near Shadowman’s portrait on the robot master screen and the star field moves at a different pace, creating a better sense of depth in Geminiman’s stage.

As with Megaman 4 onward, you can re-enter stages alrady beaten, although the boss doesn’t reappear, and exit the stages too by opening the weapons menu and then pressing select.

Best of all, you can now change your weapons on the fly using the Select button, which in the original game doesn’t get used at all.

Using Select to change weapons (and access Rush abilities) changes the gameplay by making the game much faster and more fluid than the original game. No more hitting start and sorting through your gear to find Rush Coil - just press Select until Megaman turns red!

Unfortunately, as it stands now, the script hasn’t been altered at all, meaning all spelling errors are still present. Hopefully this can be fixed in the near future.

If you’re looking for a superior version of the old classic Megaman 3, you just found it.
