DarkSamus' title screen improvement will be optional, for people (like me) who like consistency and want to keep around the original title until similar patches exist for X1/X3 (so get to that pronto!).

Amazing! Thank you very much!

Is the X1 patch compatible with the japanese version? So it can be used with the Rockman X retranslation.

Cool! Is the X3 one Zero Project compatible? X3 hacks should be Zero compatible by law.

Right now I'm handling the final stage bits of the game. Going good though! There may be some other thing that I've always found a bit dumb in X2: The final stage. That one's just Magna Centipede's level and it always bothered me. Restarting this fillery-feeling rethread everytime you lose against one of the final bosses also isn't much fun. Is there a way to disable most of the final stage, or maybe even make a teleport in the rematch stage, that leads straight to the final boss rooms?

Hmm to come back to this...
Maybe a better thing, that also would cut down retry time, is making it possible to skip cutscenes, or to make cutscenes only play once, at the first time you are about to battle the final boss.

I don't think there's a version made for the 1.1 version of X1...

Both versions of X1 are supported (1.0 and 1.1 for both USA and Japan ROMs). This is stated in the readme I included.

UPDATE: Actually, nevermind. Snatched a Mega Man X (USA) (Rev 1).sfc from somewhere and it actually works as intended, no garbage logo at all.

I don't know what difference these versions would ever be able to make for a patch that changes graphics that are the exact same between both versions.

THANK YOU SO MUCH. Testing compatibility with the Spanish Translations...

X2 and X3 works fine, but X1 causes a glitch that makes all item drops disappear when they touch the ground...

So, is anyone up for a playtest? I feel kinda iffy about releasing it straight up without some kind of testing for stuff that could be better. To be fair the suggestions of repointing and expanding text space have made me felt a bit like my relocalization may not be good enough. This feeling can be washed away by getting some feedback on the hack  :)

Just drop it here as it is and let people test it before you submit it to RHDN. You can release it as a v1 and, if you feel like it, you can go for a v2 later on, expanding text and using the retranslated script, etc.

Here it is! Patch it to the average X2 ROM (headerless) and it should be all good! The main patch includes the relocalization and MetalWario's sprite fixes. Darksamus' title screen patch is included as well.

Issue report: The music stops at Wheel Gator's capsule. To make things worse, the game softlocks.
