Mega Man X3 - Zero Project V4.0 (Base Mod)

Hack of Mega Man X3

Description:

Note: The project comes with a separate .txt inside for the new locations of many RAM values used in this project since most of the original Game Genie codes used will no longer work due to vast amounts of location changes. Use this file for various cheating needs.

A large modification of Mega Man X3 that allows Zero to be fully playable. Among this, there are vast improvements over some aspects of the original game along with a plethora of new features such as a Save/Load system. Also, the game has been modified to be ‘FastROM’ as well so some slow down has been reduced, but it’s still prevalent throughout the game.

This version is considered separate from the original Zero Project since this one has such an entirely rewritten system from the ground up and separate features that people may or may not like compared to the prior version.

The project comes with four separate patches:

  • Unheadered for an unheadered ROM
  • Headered for a headered ROM
  • Unheadered with Zero sub-weapon colors (Uses X’s) for an unheadered ROM
  • Headered with Zero sub-weapon colors (Uses X’s) for a headered ROM

This is so all grounds are covered for mistakes on patching minus the wrong ROM.

Words cannot describe how much BETTER this hack feels compared to the original. But I will try my best.

When I first downloaded this, I had my doubts. Mega Man X3 isn’t the best X series game out there, but it was good. This hack though… Perfection. It’s the perfect mix of Mega Man & Bass, Mega Man X4 and Mega Man X3 in one (in my opinion). Absolutely love this hack.

Pros:

  • You can play as X and/or Zero
  • Saving system
  • New Game +
  • Zero’s animations and weapon screens are amazing
  • The story text is perfect

Cons:

  • None that I can think of

Notes:

  • Not a huge fan of Zero’s recolors when using weapons. But not a big deal since there is a separate patch for just that!

= The Hyper Cannon mode does nothing for Zero when selected (as far as I’m aware). I feel it should be just left out.

TL;DR: I highly recommend this hack. 10/10!
