Quote from: talos91 on August 08, 2018, 04:54:52 AMBTW the Retroarch genesis plus gx core can eliminate the slowdown completely of this game with its overclock option, it is even playable on Android phones using Retroarch. All we need now is a hack to switch between special weapons with the trigger buttons without having to open the menu.
Quote from: pianohombre on August 11, 2018, 12:38:25 PMI'm not sure if y'all are familiar, but since the game was originally released in Europe/Japan it's set for 50hz televisions. Patching the game region to US changes the frequency to 60hz and speeds up the game. There's also a cheat code you can use to get more bullets on screen, and to walk without pausing. The patch hosted on this site also allows SRAM saving, rather than EEPROM which causes errors, allowing you to play the final Wily Tower after beating all 3 games. If any of you have downloaded the multirom set for ps2 soft-hack that lets you play snes, nes, and sega games on the PS2 the Pgen emulator doesn't shade the bosses you have defeated in the Boss Select screen so it's harder to keep track of your progress.As for switching through the weapons one problem with this is that on the original Sega Genesis controller there is no select button, L or R triggers, and only 3 buttons (A,B,C) on the controller. Also, I was briefly working on this and it looks like the Pause menu is necessary for loading some important function in the background. I was able to hack the RAM to change Megaman's suit (that corresponded to the weapon upgrade) and this immediately changed the suit on-screen, but when doing the same for his weapon it would not upgrade his weapon on-screen. Even after hacking the RAM to give him appropriate weapons you still need to pause the game for it to change the graphics, store all the crap in VRAM, and apply the new specs for the weapon.

Quote from: JustJeff88 on August 11, 2018, 04:32:26 PMWell, thank you for doing the leg work. While disappointed, I wonder how they made it work for the collections that appeared on GameCube/PS2/Xbox, because those had shoulder-button weapon switching.I do wish that more Genesis emulators had overclocking abilities, as being able to get rid of slowdown is a big QoL improvement. Looks like Japan has both. Gens supports NTSC USA/Canada (60), NTSC Japan (60), PAL Europe (50) and PAL Japan (50)
Quote from: tc on August 11, 2018, 06:36:10 PMAnniversary Collection was based on the PS1 Complete Works versions.Television in Japan uses NTSC at 60hz.Very easy to test on Wily Wars. The Japanese version is region locked, it will not play on a 50hz system.Those emulator settings are the four Genesis region jumper configurations. (inside a model 1 Genesis, look for jumpers labeled JP1 through JP4)In practice though, this PAL Japan mode is rarely used, and some emulators don't support it.
Quote from: JustJeff88 on August 12, 2018, 04:19:36 PMI wanted to mention that the Regen emulator, like Gens, does create a .srm file for Wily Wars when the game would normally save. However, for whatever reason, it doesn't load the save on Regen when I restart or do a hard reset on the emulator. I don't know if this is a bug or an incomplete feature as Regen has effectively been abandoned, but one works and the other doesn't.I had forgotten about that, having never played the CW versions. Thank you for the information.
Quote from: gadesx on August 15, 2018, 12:05:34 PMThere's a way to put the music with the tempo from pal version at 60hz? I prefer the music slower, after play the pal original game since the release. But hz-speed seems to be related as usually.
