Mega Man 7 Refit

Hack of Mega Man 7

Description:

Have you ever noticed how completely useless the Mega Buster is in Mega Man 7? How about the really short invulnerability period Megaman has after being injured? Have you ever wished someone would come along and do something about it? Well, you’re in luck because someone finally has!

Introducing “Mega Man 7 Refit,” a ROM hack which makes Mega Man 7 a little more like those old NES classics in a few minor, but significant ways:

  • Shorter charge times mean you can fire more Charged Shots more often! Teach those robots a lesson!
  • Increased invulnerability makes scooting across spikes much less tricky! Just don’t take too long!
  • Refreshed graphics, such as fonts which harken back to those old NES classics! It’s so old… it’s new!
  • Is there more? You’ll just have to play it and see!

So if you’re looking for a little change to your boring old Mega Man 7 gameplay experience, give this hack a try! It may satisfy that itch for something slightly new!

Decreases slow-down!

Removing the charge animation also makes the game run better when too many sprites were on screen!! AMAZING! Would love to see him charge up without holding gun out though to stay in line with the NES style changes. Speeding up text with B button in scenes previously not allowed is AWESOME as well! SO thankful for this patch!! I love it!

Did not work with MSU-1 patch because Burstman and Springman freeze the game when hit with a buster shot.
