Megaman X: Capsule Remix

Hack of Mega Man X

Description:

This is a patch to Megaman X that makes four changes:

1. All Upgrade Capsules can be obtained with good platforming skills. There are no pre-requisites to obtaining them.

2. There are no forced Upgrades. The Boots Capsule in Chill Penguin can be skipped, and Zero no longer gives you his Buster.

3. The Hadoken Capsule can be obtained the FIRST time you go through Armored Armadillos stage with all Weapons, Capsule Upgrades, Heart Tanks, and Subtanks.

4. Wolf Sigma (the final boss) now takes increased damage from Rolling Shield (3 dmg) and X-Buster Charge L3 (2 dmg). Additionally, he takes damage from X-Buster Charge L2 (1 dmg) and the Hadoken (1-hit KO).

This patch was created for two groups of people:

1. MEGAMAN X VETERANS If, like me, you have played and beaten Megaman X more times than you can count, this patch is for you. By taking away the pre-requisites for obtaining Capsules, it allows those familiar with the game to experiment with new paths. You can start on any boss and end on any boss without worrying about too much backtracking. You can also obtain the Hadoken without as much tedium.

2. MEGAMAN X SPEEDRUNNERS Megaman X is the only game in the series where a Low% speedrun requires the player to get the dash boots and the arm upgrade. This patch was created to allow for no-upgrade and buster-only speedruns. It comes with an official challenge for any speedrunner to complete a Low% No-Upgrade Buster-Only run.
