but why if you have the arm upgrade(shadow/gaea buster) and try to use special weapons the game will freeze?
I'm not sure, but it's most likely because it's trying to access unexistent graphic files.
I've managed to keep them active with gibberish graphics by blindly skipping a few subroutines, but I didn't document any of that.

this option from the patcher is bugged, once activated it'll grant infinity activations to Normal X
I know. It's marked as EXPERIMENTAL. Didn't work on that one for long.

when loading the game from memory card regardless of Rank or amount of Nightmare Souls or anything, Ilumina will always be Lv.1, after some stages or rank upgrade her Lv. will update to the correct one

Good find!
Probably a vanilla bug?

and here a few things from DmgTables, High Max has an third DmgTable that only active when fighting Shadow Armor, i think this one is very important since if someone make an custom DmgTable and/or fight him as shadow with the incomplete armor option active, he will do damage only with the Saber and/or the saber charged(arm upgrade)

Good find x 2!
I'll keep it in mind.

and i think this one is missing from DmgTable only Metal Anchor(basic shot) and Blade Saber charged can destroy it

Noted!


Thanks!

I wrote a review about this project on its page. The X6 Tweaks project is amazing, but I don't like how lives are being handled. The level design is just too unfair to ask the player to restart the entire stage for things that most likely are not their fault, and to make them kill themselves to reset their life counter. I understand that the patcher allows an infinite lives option, but I want to offer two alternatives if the intent is to make the player approach situations more cautiously.

1.) Let lives reset upon entering a new stage or area.
2.) Reduce the number of checkpoints.

One of the reasons I like Metal Shark Player's stage is not just that it's one of the only well-made levels in X6, but that it asks you to go through a massive gauntlet without checkpoints. It effectively forces you to practice in that regard. Most other levels have somewhere like 5 checkpoints per area.

acediez

Just to be clear, you can go back to Continues taking you back to the checkpoint in the patcher tool (though last time I checked I think the description actually says the opposite? It's on my small fixes to do list)

2.) Reduce the number of checkpoints.

1.) This is something I've been thinking about too and would like to get implemented eventually. "If n of lives < default n of lives, reset". Shouldn't be hard.
2.) As much as I would like more in depth stage modifications (including moving checkpoints), that's well beyond the scope of what I would work on nowdays.

Agree. This thread is a Metal Shark Player-positive environment.

Hello, this mod is fantastic. However, when i try to open the custom patcher i got this error message.
I tried to open both on my PC and Laptop and it just the same. I wish there were a tutorial or error fix on this mod.

"Error: Invalid option
Specifically: x
Line# 1790: gui,Main:Add,Button,vTestButton gText x%x_btn02% y+-18, Test Mode
The current thread will exit"

I ran as admin too

I've never seen that error, but I know it's a GUI issue.
Try disabling DPI scaling.
From the readme:

Quote- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
IF THE GUI DOESN'T LOOK LIKE IT'S ALIGNING PROPERLY:
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
Disable DPI scaling for this program:
Right click on program, go to
Properties > Compatibility > Change high DPI settings
Enable "Override high DPI scaling behavior..." and select "System"

Please let me know if that solves it.
If it doesn't, I'll try to do something about it for the next update (whenever that might be)

EmBanGiay

Thank you for reply.

I tried the settings you mentioned but sadly it didn't work.
I hope we can have some DMs to communicate more easily.

Found a somewhat minor bug. If automatic crouching is enabled, these parts jutting out from the crusher won't kill you right away. It will still kill you after a few seconds if on solid ground, but if you're on the conveyor, they can't kill you at all since you'll slide away from its hitbox by the time it would.


EDIT: Turns out it can also happen on solid ground too for some situations. The game will sometimes shove you to the side.

All-Star-Super

I dunno if I'm being stupid or not but I don't know how to make the game work and don't know the things I need t run it, I'm still getting used to this new computer. Can somebody tell me the steps to run the game? Too much of an idiot to know.

This sounds like something to make a separate thread on.
It's hard to give help when we don't know what you've done.

If one wants to consider Canonical Megaman X3 Zero Project (Or the Xtreme 2), the dialogues between Dr.Light and Zero about Falcon Armor boots would go like this:

DR. LIGHT
Zero... Long Time No See...

ZERO
I... I remember you...

DR. LIGHT
It's good to know that X is still fine, but it's dangerous X to fight With incomplete armor in this virus situation...

ZERO
I See...

DR. LIGHT
I'm going to give you a program to modify X's armor. Analyze and upload this data into your safe memory and eventually a new armor will be completed. To ensure stability, this program has been divided into four segments. Once you've gathered and loaded them all, the armor will be complete - otherwise nothing will happen. Er... Her name is Alia, right? She can help you with that, I believe. Anyway, here is the Falcon Armor leg program. With these, X can fly through the air using an invincible Dash! He can also damage enemies simply by touching them. As for you, Zero... I'm afraid I can't analyze your body more yet, so I can't make any more improvements for you... I'm sorry.

ZERO
Thanks, but I don't need anything else anyway. ...But, I have something I'd like to ask you... Sometimes I feel like I'm accessing a deep memory... and in my mind I see the silhouette of an old professor. .. Do you have any idea who he could be...?

DR. LIGHT
I'm not sure... Maybe if I saw him, I could give you an answer. Maybe it could just be a fragment, caused by some mistake? I wouldn't worry too much about it.

ZERO
No, not much is on my mind. But when I got to see you again, I couldn't help but ask...

DR. LIGHT
I'm very sorry that I couldn't help.

ZERO
Don't worry, I wasn't expecting an answer. Anyway, I will arrange for X to receive this armor program.

Wow, I'm surprised this didn't come up before. Thanks for reporting it!
Still, there's probably more important stuff to tackle than optional hacks not included in the main patch. If I can't figure out a fix quickly, I will at least add an "EXPERIMENTAL" warning to that option in the patcher.

I don't know if anyone else knows this but when you use hydroga and shadow armor's high jump in Blaze Heatnix's fight you take damage from the top of the screen.Also have a few other bugs that could be fixed.

-Blaze Heatnix gets stunned from Zero's normal attacks as if he was hit with his weakness.
-Rainy Turtloid doesn't have I-frames when attacked from the front and Sigma's final form has no I-frames either.
-While the health filling issue has been fixed with the nightmare pressure it presents another problem in that when all it's HP is gone it's still alive.

I also have a few other suggestions if you plan on updating this in the future.

-Speed up uncharged ground dash and meteor rain's animations.
-Make the boss i-frames to that of X4 and increase the i-frames for when bosses are hit with the Z-buster.
-Have the option to nerf bosses like Infinity Mijinion and High Max and buff bosses like Ground Scaravich.
-If possible have a hex editor option to change damage values of individual enemies.
-Remove the RNG from central museum of that's possible or have the rooms determined by whether you enter the top or bottom of the totem poles.
-When adjusting damage values for common enemy shields it affects boss i-frames(not sure if that's intentional but I thought I'd bring it up).
-Add a diagonal rope for the secret area in weapons center and remove the nightmare that's right next to one of the rescueable reploids.

That's about all of my suggestions I can think of for now.

I know I had mentioned this in the thread before but I really love how in X5's tweaks it is possible to have a 100% collect in both an X or Zero only playthrough, and I hope it's also doable in X6's tweaks. The idea is since most of the obstacles in X6 that stops Zero from 100% is spikes, maybe we can have one of his moves functions as Dark Hold from X5, and the one I think of is Guard Shield. To achieve this I was thinking having the weapon's gauges depleting slowly overtime instead of per usage, and give it spike immunity during activation. I know I'm asking a lot and it will require a enormous amount of work which I can't imagine, but as someone with OCD, I really want to collect everything with Zero. Please tell me if it's possible at all. Thank you so much.

Seriously? This is getting old. I hope no one is going to explain this again.
If you mean Zero can neither collect the parts nor save Reploids at Inami Temple's and Northpole Area, you are wrong.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GOTjHHL4u9U
For Inami Temple's, look at 14.30 to 15.40. That is if you are extremely skillful.
Or equiped Zero with Shock Buffer and D. Barrier. Then, manipulate the invincible frame by purposely getting hit.

And 47.12 to 47.47 by manipulating the glitch at Northpole Area.
Or equiped Zero with Shock Buffer and D. Barrier. Then, manipulate the invincible frame by purposely getting hit by the Nightmare's meteor.
But it's also achievable with Tweaks Patcher without getting hit by the Nightmare's meteor:
Zero must be equiped with Speedster and able to use Ensuizan x3 in the air.
Then, time the double jump and use Ensuizan x3 to save Dante, the injured Reploids with Jumper part.

It is doable, but in a very unintuitive way that requires the skill of a speedrunning god. In this patch, X can grab the leg part of Shadow armor and straight up walk in, which I think is balanced and is what Capcom should done in the first place. I'm not against some hurdles for acquiring the collectables, but it shouldn't require you to do some Korean backdash while micro managing your stats like you're building a character in LOL.
