Megaman 3 Japanese Style Title Screen Update v2.22

Hack of Mega Man 3

Description:

Update and improvement of the FlashPV hack http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3789/, which in turn incorporated the kuja killer hack http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/992/.

And what it does:

  • Updates the FlashPV hack to version 2.22 by Kuja Killer.
  • Redo the word ‘Mega’ from the title to conform to the other games in the series.
  • It is offered in two versions, with or without subtitles.
  • Returns the energy bar to its original position as in the other games, thanks to the G30FF tip.

Thanks immensely to RealGaea who practically updated the original hack, my role was only to have the idea of ​​the update and then put some finishing touches on. Unfortunately the normal game version is not yet ready, watch for future updates.

A hex editor, Tile Layer Pro, PPU viewer from Mesen and Lunar IPS were used.

User Review Information

Major bugs, non-improvements intact.

Reviewed By: Mr. Pennington on 23 Dec 2020

I think the Kuja hack seriously needs to be dropped as the new baseline for Mega Man/Rockman 3 improvement patches. It stepped well outside the realm of “improvement” and has seemingly only complicated subsequent hacks. This one, if I’m understanding, incorporates an OUTDATED Kuja version. If you (like me) never encountered the “blinking enemies” issue before, you will here. I turned it off once I reached Needle Man and the Gemini Laser shot blanks.

I was glad to see the boss energy bars returned to the correct side of the screen and the tadpole eggs reverted to their original, stationary sprite, but the rest of the Kuja version’s artistic liberties remain intact. The description for this hack states that the boss energy bars were returned to the left side of the screen to maintain continuity with the other NES entries. Why, then, does Mega Man remain in place after unpausing, which he cannot in Mega Man 4? Why doesn’t gameplay pause during health/weapon refills, like EVERY ITERATION of Mega Man? Why do I have the ability to toggle weapons and exit stages? What earthly reason would one HAVE to exit or revisit any stage in Mega Man 3? Proto Man still nonsensically dons the Break Man mask in plain sight. Ect., etc., etc.

I hope someone eventually just starts from the ground up with Mega Man/Rockman 3 improvement patches. It seems fairly obvious to me what the game would’ve most likely been if production hadn’t been rushed. Hopefully, a hack will eventually just DO THAT. With all that said, even if you welcome the artistic liberties, the hack’s broken.

Version 2.22 Recommended - No
