Rush Coil Bugfix

Hack of Mega Man 5

Description:

This is a bugfix for the Rush Coil for Rockman 5.

When Mega Man jumps next to the Rush Coil, the Rush Coil jumps with Mega Man.

With this patch, Mega Man can now jump on the Rush Coil even if he is next to it.

This patch is compatible with the US version, too. This may also work with some hacks.

Not Game-Changing But Nice To Have

Reviewed By: Eldrethor on 16 Nov 2018

I’ve always had a love-hate relationship with Megaman 5’s iteration of the Rush Coil ability in that although I like that they were trying to not rehash the exact same function for the third time, the result is a version of Rush Coil that didn’t particularly feel great, and it didn’t really change the core game mechanics in any meaningful way.

Puresabe’s hack corrects a bug in which Rush Coil triggers if Megaman were to jump straight up while directly overlapping Rush, but the thing is that in all the years that I’ve played this game, I seldom encountered this bug because my intuition was to always jump towards Rush, and I rarely ever found myself in situations where I really had to make the jump while overlapping the two.

With that in mind, this hack makes very little difference in a normal playthrough, and will probably only affect players who need the pixel-perfect precision for, let’s say, speed runs. Yet despite that, I found comfort in knowing that Rush Coil will work correctly when I need it to, and it works its magic without breaking anything, so I’m more than happy to recommend it over the original stock game.
