The ASM scares me every time I have to dive into one of these games, but it is what it is.
Question then, do I need to work on a specific ROM or disassembly to keep things compatible with this HD pack?
I prefer to build on what was already done as much as possible to avoid reinventing the wheel as it were.

A hack that adds Timeman, Oilman and Bondman would be my dream hack too! As far as keeping things compatible with this version, the only changes the patch makes by default is the changes to various tiles which are otherwise identical to other tiles (this is so the HD pack can pick up and support those tiles) and a few minor level edits, I think in Fireman's stage mainly. Then there's the music patch and the pause patch. Otherwise, it's just plain old MM1.

If you wanted to build off the most "necessary" changes, use the Pause Intact NES music patch so all the graphics and level tile edits will work right out of the box. However, some of the tile edits I made were quick and dirty since I didn't need to care what vanilla graphics look like so long as the tiles were not duplicates. You'd probably need to revert some of the changes later to make a non-HD Pack release that doesn't look messy in spots.

Might be easier to just build off a vanilla ROM, it wouldn't take much for me to re-implement the modified graphics and and level edits afterwards.

i was just curious about this whole dispute thing you mentioned. -

do you know if it was just some random youtube user that complained about it ?? or was it from an actual real named company ??

No idea unfortunately. As far as I can tell, Mega.nz doesn't list anywhere who actually claimed the copyright unless I went forward with a formal dispute, using my name and address. The thought crossed my mind quite a bit about it being some random person on the internet, but I don't know either what it takes for a claim to be filed with Mega. I'm sure I've made a few enemies due to my rants about most of the Legacy Collections or who knows what else.

That said, removing the music has seemed to please whoever it was, so maybe it was actually Capcom. I'd still be sort of surprised by that because from what I've seen, they've been fairly accepting of fan projects and I don't see why using chopped up versions of their music is any different than using their original, unedited sprites and BG graphics... which 99% of fan games do.

Any updates on this or MM2 Super yet?

Is there a way to get this with a music pack?  Or does anyone have a copy of the original upload?

Unfortunately I'm left wondering similar. While I recognize that the copyright claim means the original is likely no longer an option, I'm hoping someone has a more original music pack available, as comments alluded may be the case in time.

This stinks sadly. I really wanted to see how well the remixes would go with this version

I have the last version with all the remixes still intact. Anyone who wants it, just shoot me a PM.

Hi all, many apologies for the delays but the music packs are releasing today. Life has been really busy with my new job and burn out is definitely a thing when working on these packs. Very intricate process, probably more so due to the extra steps I want to take for organization. I'll update this post later with links as well as the main post. Both packs will be released today as well as previous remixed music included in the original pack. All these are easy to interchange or mix and match. Thanks again to RushJet1 and bsolmaz13, as well as previous remixers CosmicGem, ACC:XESS and TwelveDust for all their incredible work.

Work will continue when possible for Megaman 2 though I'm also working on a side project which is long overdue as well which should come out first.

EDIT: Here we go! (Copyright reminder, all these are fan remixes, no original Capcom music is included) Enjoy!

I forgot to mention earlier that the tracks go into a folder named BGM in the main directory, that turned out to be the issue for a user on the HD Pack Discord. Try that perhaps  :)

 How unlucky...guess you can try archive.org as acediez's Mega Man X5 stuff was safe since then, and is safe now.

Yeah I'll try Archive.org too. Thanks for the idea. For now, I've put everything (including the pack itself since my Mega account is now permanently suspended thanks to invalid copyright claims) on a Google Drive account.

Is this complicated to install? Could I get the graphic pack + emulator whatever, download + install in 15 minutes? (assuming high-speed connection)

Not really. It didn't take me all that long to download Mesen and the apply the graphics pack.

Hi thanks supergamerguy. It looks like Axlguy is also making an hd pack for MM2 which is awesome. Personally I like that game better and it's also cool when in later mega mans you can slide and get a charge shot. Also who can complain about free?

I can't seem to get the music packs to work either.  I've followed instructions and created the BGM folder but no dice.  The textures work so this is a head scratcher.  Any help would be appreciated!

Remember to copy one of the "Music Remixed" patches from the Customization folder. Note that doing that will invalidate your save states with an error message saying something like "ROM not found", because replacing the patch changed the resulting ROM, making it invalid.
