Zero Project

Hack of Mega Man X3

Description:

Note: This requires a unheadered Mega Man X 3 (U) ROM!

A modification of Mega Man X3 that modifies and edits many aspects of the game to allow Zero to be fully playable.

A few features taken from the read me:

  • Play as Zero anytime except areas where he’s unavailable such as the introduction stage.
  • Zero is able to use sub-weapons, however, CANNOT use the Hyper Chip.
  • Zero is able to air dash.
  • Z-Saber damage varies depending on boss strength. (Based on speed/power combined)
  • Zero is able to gather Heart Tanks, Energy Tanks and Ride Armor chips. He’s able to fill sub-weapons and Energy Tanks while also able to use them.
  • Zero can use Ride Armors.
  • Updated dialogue to reflect both characters being playable.
  • Zero can obtain capsules and use their abilities to an extent.
  • Zero has new animations for charged Triad Thunder, Ray Shot & Gravity Well.
  • X and Zero are swapped during events. If you’re Zero, X will appear, vice versa.
  • X and Zero have completely separate dialogue.
  • The game remembers who you played as last after you’ve beaten a level or died.
  • Mega Man X2 Feature in which you can shoot both buster shots at once and both will deal damage instead of the large wait time.

Etc…

Lots of Fun!

Reviewed By: Fakade on 30 Jun 2016

This definitely gives a breath of fresh air to X3, one of my favorite Megaman games of all time. Very well done, and thanks for all the work!

Just to note, you have to relearn the game a bit. Zero has different hitboxes than X, so some strategies might change a bit. I don’t want to spoil all the differences, so be sure to check it out!

One thing I did notice was a bug of sorts. If you get Zero’s saber for X (in Sigma 2 stage), you can still switch to Zero from the stage select screen. You cannot swap to X when you are in a stage, but this gives the player both X with Zero’s saber, and Zero still playable. I did not complete the game on this, so I don’t know how (or if) the story is updated or not.
