User Review Information

Two great features, one broken feature

Reviewed By: G30FF on 30 May 2019

The sliding and charge shot features of this hack are excellently implemented, and if they were the only features this hack added, I would recommend it without question. However, there is one additional feature that is inconsistently broken: fast weapon switching by pressing Select.

At various points in the game, using this feature will cause the graphics to become garbled. After it happens, it will keep getting worse until the game becomes unplayable and crashes. I’m using version 1.1 on the no-intro US Mega Man 2 ROM, and I’ve verified this behaviour on lr-nestopia and lr-fceumm Retroarch cores. I can most often see this problem in the hallways before bosses, but I can sometimes see this earlier in stages. It is not consistent, but it’s there.

This hack is otherwise excellent, and if this bug can be fixed, I would recommend it wholeheartedly.

Version 1.1 Recommended - No
