    Skilar had once said that he used CrookedPoe's optimized Link patches to create his adult Link model see here (https://i.ibb.co/410NRwz/imageedit-22-8531936831.png), that's why I credited CrookedPoe before. But it turns out he DID NOT use his optimized model... As I thought in the first place... So I edited CrookedPoe's credits to just include his work on the Majora's Mask Jumps into Ocarina of Time port. Just needed to correct this.

Mega Man X SA1

Hack of Mega Man X

Description:

SA-1 is a co-processor present in some SNES games. Being roughly four times faster than the main CPU it can significantly improve a game’s performance and that is the purpose of this hack, to remove slowdowns present in the original Mega Man X.

Other changes include:

  • Leg Dash defaulted to the L button.
  • Generated passwords are saved into SRAM
  • Control scheme saved into SRAM.
  • Subtanks stop depleting at full health.
  • Disabled double-tap to dash.(optional)

ONLY APPLY ONE PATCH:

  • mmxsa1.ips
  • mmxsa1_double_tap_disabled.ips

Besides zsnes, it should run on all emulators.

Rom disassembled with: https://github.com/Dotsarecool/DiztinGUIsh

SA1 code based on: https://github.com/VitorVilela7/SA1-Root

ver. 1.2:

  • Disabled double-tap to dash made into a separate patch.
  • Fixed Chill Penguin’s frozen statues collision.
  • Fixed C. Sting palette effects.
  • Fixed graphical glitch on sea and sky stages.
  • Fixed the amount of health provided by Subtanks.
  • Control scheme saved into SRAM.

Great hack, but needs some bug fixes

Reviewed By: drunk_caterpillar on 25 May 2020

[Edit] There’s a bug in the charged version of the Chameleon Sting. The character still flickers but now the colour of X doesn’t shift through different hues.

I originally had tried the v1.0 patch and, while impressed, couldn’t recommend it because there were a handful of bugs that held it back from being better than the original release. With the v1.1 update though, the SA-1 version works nearly as well but now with SRAM saving, a few QoL improvements, and more consistent performance during strenuous scenes. This is the way I’ll be playing Mega Man X from now on and I totally recommend it, although there are still one or two bugs that need fixing.
