Nope. Still getting the same problem. Every time, it tells me that it's either in an unknown format or damaged. As far as I can tell, it is a standard RAR file, which I can usually open no problem.

 also, I'm already out of bandwidth. No there is no reason that should be the problem.

Killing robots in megaman series has never been portraied realistically, or violently. It looks pretty cartoonish to me. I can go "oh wow pretty rabbit!" and kill it and move on and never ever think "wow megaman is such a coward for killing the robot that looks like an animal".
The robots are creations of Dr. Willy and are programmed to kill megaman. Maybe Dr. Willy thought that making them look like animals would create a small feeling of moral doubt in megaman, making it easier for the robots to succeed in their mission?
Anyway, the game needs enemies. Do you propose they should just look like regular machines and not resemble any form of living organism? Wouldn't that make it super boring?

I'm a vegetarian btw.

 to each their on, but I personally do not feel comfortable playing my game. Also, I would love, for once, for a game to have boring villains. it always feels like the villains are unique and interesting but not the heroes, as opposed to the other way around or possibly having them both be unique and interesting.

I'll try it a third time, I guess.

Allow me to alleviate your stress then

Shove a bunch of words down my throat that I didn't say while ignoring what I did say, sure

I'm the problem, whatever

Aaaand unsubscribed

You used the "we are human" argument, which implied a lot of the things I said. I commented on the relevant things you said. Sigma, vile and those others clearly have non-human allies. X does not. The few non-animal villains don't make up for animals making up MOST of the villains and zero of the heroes. As for the demonizing of animals: while humans=good/everything else=bad stories have always been a thing, they have only become super prevalent since the late 2000s.

"Unsubscribed?" Unsubscribe to what? I have nothing to subscribe to.

Hi man, what's exactly the problem? Trying to download, or extracting the file?

 I downloaded it twice and it seemed to have been corrupted both times. Anyone else having this problem?

While this is an... interesting read, I'm told that graphics hacks are among the easiest to make, so have you considered firing up Tile Layer Pro and hacking the game yourself?

Yeah, but I've never been able to make good Sprites that would work in Megaman X. Plus I always end up feeling daunted by all the Sprites I need to edit. From what I can tell of the dimensions, it wouldn't be too hard to edit a dog face on x, but even with a lot of the Sprites having similar faces, that's still a lot of Sprites to edit. Sometimes I wish someone already made Sprites. Maybe this is just my way of admitting I'm lazy.

That being said, it's not the only issue. I do have a bilateral injury in both hands, and using the mouse for too long is kind of painful. I probably just need a mouse with less resistant buttons but I don't have one right now.

You. People like you who seem to think that being human means we have to portray humans in a narcissistic light. People who writes stories as if people are that fucking shallow that they absolutely cannot accept the idea that other life exist as anything other than objects, and that the most relatable hero is someone who acts exactly that way. Us being human does not excuse ourselves for writing  stories as if the universe revolves entirely around us. And just so we're clear, writing stories that star humans isn't the problem, it's writing stories that portray literally everything else as disposable, which media constantly does.

Again, these are real life problems that modern media treats as good things. These are also problems that modern people see as good things. I will not support media that does that. I'm sorry if that offends you, but I'm not changing my perspective. Having non-human characters that aren't villains or treated as objects won't kill you, and I'd even argue that it could lead to better and more creative storytelling..

The Street Fighter 2 NES Graphics hack seems to be corrupted. I've tried downloading it twice and I've gotten the same problem.

Interesting take...

What are your thoughts on Sigma? Serges? Agile? Violen? Vile?

All also human-looking. And then, what about the Mets, the Hogans, the non-humanoid and/or purely machine-like enemies which are in the X series?

It's true that the 8 stage bosses which you end up fighting are animal-themed, but by and large, this theme does not carry to the rest of the bestiary (cyber-bestiary?) of the games.

Also, are human beings not also animals, from a certain point of view? Our cells aren't plant or inorganic matter, they are literally animal cells, as defined by our biology.

My big problem is that we, the human race, are responsible for the endangerment of over 30,000 different animals, including many of the animals that make up boss fights in this game. I also feel like compassion towards animals in general is dying in Modern Man. We are constantly portraying Hunters as these holy and perfect human beings , and do not give me that bulshit about how hunters are all so beneficial to the environment, because I've heard it a million fucking times and I am fucking sick of that. In my experience, a lot of hunters I know are very manipulative towards ecological science, and usually won't even lift a finger to save animals unless animals get to suffer in some way. Regardless, we also have an unnecessary obsession with hunting any amount of modern day hero is that happened to be Hunters is, honestly, infuriating.

All that being said, I cannot see X as a hero and I do not feel comfortable playing those games. That's why I need a non-human protagonist because then it won't be an embellishment of problems I see in real life that people treat as good things.

Short version: I play games to get away from humans and reality, and this game them right back into my face.

I've always had a big problem with the Mega Man X Games: X himself. The whole concept of this human looking robot going out and killing all these animal looking robots never failed to, honestly, piss me off. I know a lot of people question my opinions on "humans=good/EverythingElse=bad" type stories, but the reason I complain about them so much is that they embellish real life problems and treat them as a good thing, whether it's animal cruelty or human vanity or even discrimination towards animal lovers.

Unfortunately, changing X into proto-man doesn't get rid of my problem. I would love to see someone replace X with an anthropomorphic Rush or Beat or something that isn't human.

... Is no one else going to comment on how insanely sexist this is?

I swear I have seen a creature like that in the second image. Isn't that a boss from Castlevania portrait of ruin?

For anyone who is interested in playing homebrew games, I would definitely recommend that they give Anguna a try. It's an interesting dungeon crawler style RPG very similar to The Legend of Zelda type games. Both the GBA and DS versions seem to be the same overall with only a few differences in gameplay. I personally prefer the more classic retro feel of the GBA version, but both are fine. Make sure to look everywhere and collect any useful items you find. They will be needed latter on.

 I think the game would be ironic (and a lot more interesting) if you could play as a kangaroo.

Also, the game crashes everytime I try to save my game or continue after dying.

Besides the subtitle sharing its name with a cheesy Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles knock off starring anthropomorphic kangaroos, why is it warriorS? From what I can tell, there is only one Warrior.

As a person who has played F-Zero Climax, I always hated how unbalanced the game was. Some ships were extremely overpowered *coughelegancelibertycough* While others were impossible to control. You like playing blood Falcon in other games? Oh boy, you will hate playing as him in this game.

Haha haha ha! "I'm not a furry but it would be cool if we had this furry sprite hack... for furries."

<_<

 I already explained my big reason for wanting the hack, and it's not because I'm a furry.

16
You could replace X with Rush(who never actually appeared in the X series):


 that is probably what would make the most sense, plus he has existing sprites that might not be too hard to splice.

17
 I know this may sound like a stupid idea and reason for wanting a hack, but...



Have I ever told people that I enjoy playing Mega Man, but I absolutely hate Megaman X and zero? A big reason for that is because I absolutely hate X as a character. Let me just put it this way...

A big problem I have in the real world that I tried to get away from when playing video games is anti environmentalism, habitat destruction, animal cruelty and other forms of zoosadism. I also generally prefer not playing as humans in video game for this reason mostly. Despite that, I do not dislike Mega Man as a character. The fact that he fights alongside a robot dog, robot bird and robot cat tells me that he has consideration for life other than humans. It also helps that the vast majority of villains are other robot humans much like Megaman.

Mega Man X, on the other hand, is a zoo sadistic Eco Nazi. His enemies are mostly animals and he hasn't shown any consideration towards any creature other than humans. Playing his game towards the end would basically mean ensuring that this guy succeeds in his goals, and from what I can tell, his goals are pretty much only to save humans and to f*** with all other life.

Honestly, fixing this wouldn't be hard. Just change Mega Man X to look like a different creature. If he look like a cat or a dog or a sloth or, really, ANYTHING but a human, I would not be reminded so heavily of the reasons I play video games to get away from. Besides myself, a hack like this would also it appeal to furries. If you changed the levels as well, which wouldn't be that hard since there are programs, you could broaden the appeal even further.


Long story short, I'd love to see a hack of the Mega Man X Games that changes X from a human to an animal.

Edit: from what I can tell, Mega Man X's Sprites do not require extraction, and can simply be edited with tile molester or a similar program.

Those Streets of Rage 2 Sprite hacks just keep coming, don't they?

19
Would be more interested if all the bosses not reptilian took twice as many hits. Very Gnawty is satisfying to beat up, but he only takes five hits.

I think I do get some other things. The wall might actually look better if it was simplified. Also, the trees + the background are wrong. The trees should be their own tiles and not have a backvround.



Moderator Note:

Thread was locked because this is a for profit project and it also is somewhat beyond the scope of the site. We try to reserve Personal Project and Help Wanted Ad threads on this site for actual rom hacks. This would very loosely fall under homebrew, and even then only in the music aspect relative to retro game hacking. Since we don't intend the forum to be a place of financial transactions between members, including labor, this thread is somewhat at odds with that mindset. For now the thread has been left locked but not deleted so as to not erase prior discussion if any involved parties want to discuss this matter on another site or via PMs.
