Mega Man X3 - Zero Project V4.0 (Base Mod)

Hack of Mega Man X3

Description:

Note: The project comes with a separate .txt inside for the new locations of many RAM values used in this project since most of the original Game Genie codes used will no longer work due to vast amounts of location changes. Use this file for various cheating needs.

A large modification of Mega Man X3 that allows Zero to be fully playable. Among this, there are vast improvements over some aspects of the original game along with a plethora of new features such as a Save/Load system. Also, the game has been modified to be ‘FastROM’ as well so some slow down has been reduced, but it’s still prevalent throughout the game.

This version is considered separate from the original Zero Project since this one has such an entirely rewritten system from the ground up and separate features that people may or may not like compared to the prior version.

The project comes with four separate patches:

  • Unheadered for an unheadered ROM
  • Headered for a headered ROM
  • Unheadered with Zero sub-weapon colors (Uses X’s) for an unheadered ROM
  • Headered with Zero sub-weapon colors (Uses X’s) for a headered ROM

This is so all grounds are covered for mistakes on patching minus the wrong ROM.

User Review Information

Replaces the original as the definitive version.

Reviewed By: MisterGuyMan on 28 Jan 2020

I liked MMX3. The game was good enough but much weaker than the other two games of the original trilogy. This mod makes it not just a worthy sequel but possibly the best of the 3.

The ability to play as Zero, and a balanced alternative to X rather than a mere reskin, is game-changing. X is like Batman who can exploit weaknesses to win battle with prep. Zero is Wolverine who goes into battle blades swinging. Using Zero is like playing the game for the first time.

Apart from Zero, small QoL changes are very welcome. New Game Plus and a save system are cherries on top of an already great improvement.

Version 4.0 Recommended - Yes
