ROM Hacks: Roll-chan 3 Improvement RELEASED!
« on: April 10, 2016, 08:03:23 am »

Update By: Zynk Oxhyde

Announcing the release of ROLL-CHAN 3 IMPROVEMENT patch.

As many Mega Man fans may know by now, Mega Man 3 was released back in 1990 for the NES. However, along with the release of the game, it was already suffering with unresolved bugs and unimplemented features that could have made the game better. After 20 years, kuja killer created a Mega Man 3 Improvement (MM3I) patch for not only the US version of the game, but also for the Japanese version. It fixed all known bugs, like the Top Spin energy drain and the mosaic in the Stage Select screen; and he added more features for the game, like the Exit command and the real-time weapon switching. After the next few years, he made it as far as supplementing the game with an introduction movie, shown here - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bed6y5sX03E

With that achievement, Zynk took the time to create a Roll-chan version of the improved Mega Man 3 game. Applying the patch with the Roll-chan 3 was very simple, but with the changes made in MM3I, more hacking was needed. And with the new Intro-scene, Zynk made a Roll-chan version of it, too.

With all that, please enjoy Roll-chan 3 Improvement!

I really dig these Roll-Chan ROM hacks.  Here's a link to some gameplay footage.

Hope you all enjoy it!

A quick note.  This patch does work on the Retron 5 but you have to finagle the patch system, so to speak.  What had to be done is that a Mega Man 3 ROM had to be patched with the MM3 Improvement hack then that modified ROM was patched with the Roll-Chan 3 Improvement ROM hack.  From there Lunar IPS was used to create a new Roll-Chan 3 patch.  I didn't create that patch myself.  I tried to but beat kept failing on me.  So someone at the Retro5.net forums was kind enough to create it for me.

Thanks for featuring my work, DeathByBFG!  ;D
I've seen a lot of Roll-chan playthroughs recently, its a delight for me to see other ppl enjoying it.

Btw, with kuja killer's permission, later I'll release a straightforward patch for patching with a clean ROM rather than double-patching; per his recommendation, as well.

Update! The patches are now straightforward, meaning, no more double patching required!

Just patch those on an unmodified ROM.

Holy snap, yes...!  I'm all about this!  My favorite game, now improved with the power if Mega Man 3 Improvement, and further-enhanced with my favorite Light Labs robot as the playable character!  Awesome, awesome, awesome!!
I'm not that hard to find... if you know where to look.
