Right, I forgot there's separate palette sets for highlights (charging, shooting).
This should cover it:

Quote
Ultimate Armor Palettes - Charging and Shooting (X5):

Ultimate Armor Palettes - Charging and Shooting (X4):
0000F7896F91D7AD1ACBFBAED3890E955CE3B7C2B09DAF95B5B257AA929D9291
00001ACBFBAED389D3890E955CE3B7C2B09DAF9592915CE32AE6C6D104B9E1B4

0000DFD37FAAD7A9DF90EB94BCFFB4DE2FD269B9C49CC8EBCCFE2BFA87C9E3AC

These are not immediately next to the other ones, so you'll have to look for them separately (the palette files has all the base colors first, including special weapons, and all the charging/shooting palettes after).

Now that I think of it, you should look for TWO complete sets (unarmored base, armor, and all the charging/shooting ones). One for the player file, and another one for the boss fight at Zero Stage 3.
And besides that, a single instance of only the armor palette (second line of the palettes from my previous post). This is the one for the armor/character select screen. You won't be able to neatly replace the unarmored base colors for this one though (without coding a solution at least), because the game uses the same base palette for all the armors in this screen.

Mega Man X5 v1.6.4 bugs, typos and suggestions report using emulator ePSXe205 part 2:

Before that, I notice other things as well.

Since the Improvement Project v1.5, during the Mission Complete Report, Alia no longer explains about:
- equipped weapons by browsing L1,R1 button
- all enemy has a weak point
- may create weapon and other items by defeating high level boss
She explained about getting DNA data, skip these 3 and ask which item to be created. Is that intention?

ITEM OBTAINED           Old script name                       New script name
-------------           ---------------                       ---------------
C-BALL                  CRYSTAL BALL                          Orichalcum Ball
ENERGY CART             ENERGY CART                           Energy Cartridge
LASER DEVICE            LASER DEVICE                          Laser Device
HYDROGEN                HYDROGEN                              hydrogen
ORBITER WING            ORBITER WING                          Orbiter Wing
ORBITER ENGINE          ORBITER ENGINE / BOOSTER              Orbiter Engine
FUEL TANK               FUEL TANK                             Fuel Tank
BOOSTER ENGINE          BOOSTER for rocket                    Booster Rocket
As you can see, the name for the Parts in Old script is quite faithful with the one in ITEM OBTAINED.
Is it possible to change the name for the Parts in ITEM OBTAINED to be identical with the one in New script?

Mission Complete Report:
Suggestion: Crescent Grizzly had ORICHALCUM BALL!
Alia:
Crescent Grizzly had
ORICHALCUM! This should

you! you won't get away
Spiral Pegasus:

n) Suggestion: (Alia's Mission Complete Report. When parts needed.)
    Alia:
    I didn't expect to fight with the Repliforce again.
    I guess it was inevitable since most of their members have become Mavericks.
    Fortunately, the devices for the shuttle were not damaged.
    However, that is not the case for the Repliforce Air Fleet.
    It won't be safe out there anymore.
    Please come back to the Hunter Base.

    Please come back to the Hunter Base.

3) Dark Necrobat's stage
a) Suggestion: Change "space shuttle" to "Space Shuttle" and "facility, too..." to "facility too...". (Play as either X or Zero when need the parts)
Alia:
laboratory... Why don't you
borrow a Fuel Tank for the
Alia:
space shuttle? But before
you do that, there is
Alia:
something strange about the
planetarium... So, the
Alia:
Sigma Virus has already
polluted this facility,
Alia:
too... Your visit to the
planetarium will be
Alia:
very interesting, I guess.

b) Suggestion: Change "the track" to "its track" and "place" to "platform"

Watch out for the track! It
isn't moving on the right
Alia:
course! If you sense any
danger, jump to the nearest
Alia:
place as soon as possible!

c) Suggestion: Mavericks, and everyone will be dead! (Play as X on 3 different events)
Dark Necrobat:
Mavericks, everyone will be
dead! Squeak! I'll start the

space colony. Please return


4) Burn Dinorex's stage
[This stage makes Alia looks like a rookie navigator. If someone guides me this way while I'm driving, I'll be mad!]

a) Suggestion: There's a Booster Engine in this lava area. (Play as either X or Zero when need the parts)
[If you decide it to be Booster Rocket, you need to change the name of the ITEM OBTAINED, BOOSTER ENGINE and etc listed below.]
Alia:

choice but to proceed this
way. The lava comes at

d) Typo and suggestion:
    Can you see the rock shelter below you? The temperature is lower than the other side of the rock.
    If you take shelter from this kind of rock, you may be able to avoid the lava.
Alia:
Hmm... Can you see the rock
over there? The temperature
Alia:
is lower then the other
side of rock. If you take
Alia:
advantage of the rock, you
may be able to avoid the
Alia:
lava. Wait behind the rock
when the lava comes, then
Alia:
proceed with care.

e) Suggestion: 1) Change both 'this way' to 'straight'. 2) If you go down, use the Ride Armor to go through the lava area.
Alia:
Our path divides... You can
go this way, or you can take
Alia:
the other way below... If
you go down, you'll have to
Alia:
go through the lava area.
If you go this way, you'll
Alia:
be free from lava, but...
You can't proceed with the
Alia:
Ride Armor because a huge
rock blocks the way. Which
Alia:
way will you choose? The
decision is yours...

that you're hiding here.

X:
Earth... Hand over the
engine quietly!

h) Suggestion: (Play as X when need the parts)

Burn Dinorex:
Yes. Whatever you say... You
do realize that no one will
Burn Dinorex:
say that, right? So do what
you always do and take it by
Burn Dinorex:
force. If you can beat me,
that is. Heh heh heh...

i) Typo and suggestion: (Play as X when no need the parts. Doesn't matter whether the colony already been destroyed or not.)
    Have you come to kill me too? I'll stand and fight! The world is ruined, so there's nothing to lose but fight with all we have! To the death!
Burn Dinorex:
Maverick Hunter, destroyer
of Reploids... Have you come
Burn Dinorex:
kill me, too? I'll stand and
fight! The world is ruined,
Burn Dinorex:
so there's nothing to do but
fight with all we have!
Burn Dinorex:
To the death!

i) Suggestion: door-is it my time to go too? (Play as Zero when need the parts)
Burn Dinorex:
door-is it my time to go,
too?

j) Suggestion: No. I just came for your Booster Engine. (Play as Zero when need the parts) [See a)]
Zero:
No. I just came for
your Booster Rocket.

k) Suggestion: You also want my life, don't you? And, you want it through a fight, don't you? (Play as Zero when need the parts)
Burn Dinorex:

Well it doesn't matter, we
Signas:

b) Suggestion: (Play as X before battle)
    1) And it really is life-threatening work as you just go all out.
    2) So, this time around, I'll kick it up a notch too.

bother. That is my job.
Dynamo:
Although it's
life-threatening work, since

Dynamo:
a notch, too. Are you ready?

c) Suggestion: Both you and Sigma are always in super intense mode... Don't lump (Play as Zero before battle)

you're doing. You, Sigma,
you're always in super

here without any armor...
Dr. Light:
But it's very dangerous to
go without adequate
Dr. Light:
equipment. To finish this
battle, I'll give you the
Dr. Light:
Ultimate Armor. You can
perform its Giga Attack, the
Dr. Light:
Nova Strike, unlimited
times. But don't get lazy
Dr. Light:
and depend too much on the
power of the Armor.
Dr. Light:
The end is near...
Good luck, X!

b) Suggestion: I wasn't able to create Armor for you...   (Play as Zero)
Dr. Light:
Zero... I wasn't able to
create armor for you...

c) Suggestion: 1) X... Even the Lifesavers...?    2) Just as I expected... He's come this far, and the virus is everywhere!    (Play as Zero)
Zero:
X... Even Lifesaver...?
Why are you here?
Lifesaver:
Look at him...! Just as I
expected...he's come this
Lifesaver:

everywhere! Yet, he hasn't

d) Not sure: "missions like these..." / "mission like this..." / "missions like this" ?    (Play as Zero)
Zero:
YOU go back to the Base! I
don't need any help with
Zero:
dangerous missions like
these...

e) Suggestion: (Play as Zero)
    X:
      ...But if you still won't go back, I'll force you to do so!
    Zero:
      ...Look, I really didn't want to reach a point, where I'd have to fight you.
      But if I must, so be it! Let's go, X!
X:
...But if you still won't go
back, I'll force you to!
Zero:

must, so be it! Let's go, X!

f) Suggestion: (Play as X vs Zero) [To me, there's some awkwardness in the conversation. Very unnatural.]
    X:
      Zero... I knew you'd be here...
      I've come to bring you back to the Base.   [edited]
    Zero:
      I feel something here...
      Almost as if...
    X:
      Zero, it's too dangerous!    [edited]
      You'll end up being infected by the virus...
    Zero:
      You've...been checking my virus readings, X?   [Not sure: 'readings' or 'reading']
    X:
      Yes, I have.
      Why aren't you taking any damage from the virus?   [edited]
      Instead, your power is rising?! Why?!   [edited]
      This isn't the time to fight when we still have a mission to accomplished, but...I'll bring you back no matter what it takes. [edited]
    Zero:
      Are you saying you're willing to take me down?   [edited]
      X, you can't fight me.
      Your kindness is also your weakness.
      I know you're worried about me, but I'm fine.   [edited]
      Trust me.
     X:
       Zero, I don't want to lose you again...   [edited]
       I'm really worried and I do trust you, so...I will bring you back by force!   [edited]
X:
Zero... I knew you'd be
here... Zero, I've come to
X:
bring you back to the Base.
Zero:
I feel something here...
Almost as if...
X:
Zero, it's too dangerous.
You'll end up being
X:
infected by the virus...
Zero:
You've...been checking my
virus readings, X?
X:
Yes, I have. Why aren't you
taking damage from the

virus? Instead, your power
is increasing?! Why?!
X:
This isn't the time to fight
when we have a mission to
X:
accomplished, but... I'll
bring you back no matter
X:
what it takes.
Zero:
Are you saying that you're
willing to take me down, X?
Zero:
X, you can't fight me. Your
kindness is also your

weakness. If you're worried,
I'm fine. Trust me.
X:
Zero, I don't want to lose
you... I'm really worried
X:
about you and I do trust
you, so... I will bring you
X:

g) Suggestion: It's no different than your old readings, but... (X vs Awakened Zero)

So it seems. The data says
just as much... It's no
X:
different from your past
readings, but... "There are

h) Suggestion: I got hit by Soul Body... (Play as X after beating either Zero or Awakened Zero.)
X:

3) Cutscene after Virus Zero's stage 3
a) Suggestion: 1) ...No, I won't allow you!    2) ...No! I won't allow you!!   (Play as either X or Zero)

I know everything you're

Wha-what?! You pitiful fool!
Zero:

you to!!

b) Suggestion: I haven't really completely reawakened you yet... (Play as either X or Zero)
Sigma:
Dammit! I haven't
completed you... I will

c) Suggestion: ...No, I won't allow you!   (No more Zero)

Sigma:
See you soon! You, the
strongest Reploid!


4) Alia's briefing before the final stage.
Suggestion:
   Alia:
    It must be Sigma's reading...
    I can't think of anyone else except him!
    Sigma is surely behind all this...
    I won't stop you from fighting anymore...
    I'll just leave everything in your hands...
Alia:

5) Final stage
a) Suggestion: (Play as X before Sigma's first battle. It doesn't matter whether Zero is available or not)
    X:
      Why did you do all this for? What's the point?!   [edited]
    Sigma:
      Because of Zero... And to awaken Zero from his false self.   [edited]
    X:
      What?!
    Sigma:
      You see, over the years, I've done all sorts of research on both of you and learned a magnificent truth.   [edited]
      I wanted to see Zero's true form more than anything...   [Miss out this line earlier. Anyway, no change]
      Therefore, I spread the virus across the world to purify his body.   [edited]
      However, that wasn't enough.
      So I took that old colony, turned it into a virus colony and let it fall to Earth.   [edited]
      The result was exactly as I predicted.
    X:
      You did all this for something so petty?!   [edited]
      The Earth was almost destroyed!
    Sigma:
      Fortunately, there was a group of daredevils called the Maverick Hunters that managed to prevent the world's destruction...   [edited]
      But alas, most of the Hunters have become Mavericks... Heh heh heh...   [edited]
[Blah x2]
X:
What did you do all of this
for? What was the point?!
Sigma:
Because of Zero...to awaken
Zero from his false self.
X:
What?!
Sigma:
Over the years, I've done
all sorts of research on the
Sigma:
two of you and learned of
a magnificent truth. I
Sigma:
wanted to see Zero's true
form more than anything...
Sigma:
so I spread the virus across
the world to purify his
Sigma:
body. However, that wasn't
enough. So I took that old

colony and turned it into a
virus colony and let it fall
Sigma:
to Earth. The result was
exactly as I predicted.
X:
So you did all of this for
something so petty?! The
X:
Earth was almost destroyed!
Sigma:
Fortunately, there was a
group of slackers called
Sigma:
the Maverick Hunters that
managed to prevent the
Sigma:
world's destruction... But
alas, most of the Hunters
Sigma:
have also become
Mavericks... Heh heh heh...
[then blah x4]

b) Suggestion: (Play as X before Sigma's 2nd battle. It doesn't matter whether Zero is available or not)
    1) Be it friends or foes, you'll still fight them.
    2) The truth is, this time, I had quite a good partner... He supported me in many ways.
[Blah x3]
Sigma:
You're the best... Friend,
foe, you'll fight anyone.
[blah, blah]
Sigma:

time I had quite the good

c) Suggestion: (Play as X after beating Sigma's 2nd form. It doesn't matter whether Zero is available or not)
    1) You can't stand seeing others get hurt, can you, X?
    2) I'll take your cherished Zero... We'll go to hell together!
[Blah, blah, blah]
Sigma:
Gha ha ha ha ha...! You
can't stand seeing people
Sigma:
get hurt, can you X? You can
take the pain that I inflict
Sigma:
on you, but Zero's pain
hurts you more, doesn't it?
Sigma:
I'll take your cherished
Zero...we'll go to hell
Sigma:
together! Farewell, X!
Gha ha ha ha ha!

d) Suggestion: (Play as Zero before battle against Sigma)
    1) ...Shut up! Shut your damn mouth!!
    2) Even if you strike me down, death still awaits you...
[Blah x17]
Zero:
...Shut up! Shut your damn
mouth?
Sigma:
Even if you strike me down
now, death awaits you...
[Blah x4 then battle begins]

e) Suggestion: (Play as Zero before Sigma's 2nd battle)
    1) Tell me... Who is stronger, you or X?
    2) Who cares... Show yourself!
    3) So Zero, I met this old man and he told me you were the world's strongest.
    4) Bug: Sigma:
                 strongest in the
                 universe...
        Suggestion: Sigma:
                            Who is THAT old man?!
        [Either 'exclude all those lines and the dialogue box' or 'change it to something like I suggested'.]
    5) He seems to know quite a lot about you... Almost as he's your father!
Sigma:
Heh heh heh. You really are
the best, Zero. Tell me...
Sigma:
who is stronger, X or Zero?
Zero:
Who cares...show yourself!
Where are you, Sigma?!
Sigma:
Heh heh heh. Don't get so
worked up. I'm here... So
Sigma:
Zero, I met this old man,
and he told me that you were
Sigma:
the world's strongest. Tell
me, who is that old man?
Sigma: [Bug]
strongest in the
universe...
Zero:
...No idea who that is.
Sigma:
You should know him quite
well. You meet him in your
Sigma:
dreams, don't you?
Zero:
I don't know... I don't know
anyone like that.
Sigma:
He seems to know quite a lot
about you...almost like a
Sigma:
father!
Zero:
Shut up! This is the end!
You're finished, Sigma!

f) Suggestion: (Play as Zero after Sigma's 2nd battle)
    1) I'll...take y-you...down with me!
    2) Looks like X is nearby... Shall the three of us die together?
Sigma:
Gwaaaaaaaa! Damn... But I
won't die alone! I'll...
Sigma:
take y-you... down with me!
Zero:
You're a mess. What can you
do now?
Sigma:
Gha ha ha ha ha! Looks like
X is nearby...shall the
Sigma:
three of us die together?
You won't feel lonely if X
Sigma:
is with you, right?
Zero:
Wait! Don't you dare touch
X!
Sigma:
Let's go to hell together!
Farewell, Zero! Gha ha ha!


6) Ending cutscene (X's bad ending)
a) Suggestion: One week later...
One Week Later...

b) Typo: The answer is no.
X:
...You're still going on
about that? The answer is
X:
No. I don't remember
anything...

c) Suggestion: ...You see, everyone knew about the renowned A-Class Hunters, Captain Zero and Captain X...
Hunter B:
...You see? Everyone knew
about the renowned A-Class
Hunter B:
Hunters Captain Zero and
Captain X...  The two of you

d) Suggestion:
    1) Poor X.
    2) I have no idea... Maybe it disappeared on its own? Otherwise, it was deliberately erased...
Douglas:
But, why was only Zero's
memory data erased?
Douglas:
This guy, X.
Signas:
I have no idea...maybe it
disappeared on its own?
Signas:
Otherwise it was
deliberately erased...

e) Bug: Missing 'X:'   [I would have prefer you to combine the two lines together in a dialogue box.]
    Typo: a utopia       [I thought you should've known that already after major ovehaul on X6's script]
    Suggestion: E-"Elysium"...?
X:
Well... I've got it! I want

to create "Elysium".
Hunter A & B:
E-Elysium...?
X:
Yes, an utopia called
"Elysium" where humans and

f) Not sure: There's no looping in the 2nd soundtrack where the scene change to the 'One Week Later...'. I mean is that how it should be?


7) Bug: Black screen freeze instead of restarting the game after pressing any buttons when displaying PLAY TIME and HUNTER RANK for beating the game.
[The same thing happens if you decide to wait until the screen showing secret input to get Ultimate Armor and Black Zero.]

Forget what I said earlier. I finished the whole possibility already.
I modified 5), but I can't post the new 8 ) and 9).
Already exceed 15000 characters again.
The latter two aren't important as no bug or typo detected. They're merely suggestion.

Okay, my final report:

8 ) Ending cutscene (X's good ending)
Suggestion:  [Should we change the script a bit so it can faithfully serve as prologue for X6?]
   1) Three weeks later... / Three Weeks Later...
   2) A giant Maverick has appeared at the Eurasia Ruins: HORIE 2146 Block Area!
   3) "Keep your wits about you", everyone...
   4) We might have gotten a bit rusty after a short break...
   5) Since the recent incident, Captain X's eyes have been as stern...and sharp as that other one...
   6) I'll keep on fighting!
Three Years Later...
Alia:
A giant Maverick has
appeared at the HORIE 2146
Alia:
Block Area! Go into action
immediately!
X:
I'm heading out! Keep your
wits about you, everyone...
X:
We've been used to living
in peace...
Hunter A:
Since that time, Captain X's
eyes have been as stern...
Hunter A:
and sharp as that other
one...
X:
I will face any enemy now...
as long as I have this
X:
Saber... I'll fight today,
too! Zero, we'll fight
X:
together! We'll be together
forever, Zero...


9) Zero's Ending cutscene
[Aside than the "did" to "am" which Fionordequester posted earlier, I don't find anything wrong.]


April 27, 2021, 11:44:32 am - (Auto Merged - Double Posts are not allowed before 7 days.)
Sorry, I forgot to include this typo I detected earlier.
(Play as X before Sigma's 2nd battle. It doesn't matter whether Zero is available or not)
[You can combine with 5) b) if you want. This is the Blah x3]
Typo: Remove 'to'
Sigma:
Heh heh heh. You really are
the best, X... The stronger
Sigma:
you are, the more I want to
to destroy you... I couldn't
Sigma:
even do it after making you
and Zero fight each other...

The input read is not an issue... In fact, for the current version's fast forward, I already added a custom functionality for the start button on cutscenes. The challenge was that every cutscene has its code for ending the sequence in the last page, and it was slightly different whether it should take you to the stage select screen (most of them), to another cutscene (enigma/shuttle), or the credits roll (the endings). I couldn't find a single "end cutscene" solution that would work as intended in ALL cases.

But anyway, since you guys reminded me of it, I gave it another go. I figured out one solution that would work for most of them, then added some hard coded exceptions here and there for the rest of them, and... good news! I actually have a proper cutscene (and dialogues!) START button skip implemented now. It's hacky af, but hasn't given me any issues (so far).



Let's take it one step at a time though. I'm saving this one among other cool features until after we're done polishing up the script/font release.
The next one will only be about fixing typos, bugs, and improving the text alignment/spacing. Once we test that one throughly, I'll consider the script work done and move on to give you more fun updates.


Magnificent find bro! You're our hero! The unknown more fun updates you mentioned caught my interest as well. Best wishes to this project!

acediez,

I just notice the word "saber" needs to be consistent.
I would suggest you change all the word "saber" to small letter while "Z Saber' remains as capital letter.
If I recalled correctly, the words "saber" and "Z Saber" only appear in Training stage, Zero Virus's stage 3, and X's good ending.
Please look back final report of my part 3:
8 ) Ending Cutscene (X's good ending)
X:
I will face any enemy now...
as long as I have this
X:
Saber... I'll fight today,
too! Zero, we'll fight

Also, be mindful if you decide to use some of my suggested lines. They might be grammatically wrong.
Sorry for my poor grammar.

That's very a good point  :laugh:
Either way, most of you just want to skip as much of it as possible!

That looks superb. Imma try it as soon as i can and see how it goes.
In case you haven't yet, give it a shot to the water level to make it scroll faster :thumbsup:

I have a few suggestions.

-Have it so that when you game over you start from the beginning of the stage when you continue.That way lives actually serve a purpose.

-Disable lives given by reploids.

-Have the ability to play as armorless X in the intro stage.

There's barely any collectible lives in the game, so those two changes combined would make things like Necrobat's armor and Kraken's stage rather miserable. They would be nice as an option, but I don't know if Acediez wants to make this project similar to X6 Tweaks in terms of customization or not.

Here's a suggestion for a future version of this great patch, if possible:
Remove the annoying beep that plays as the text renders on screen. I find it grating and completely unnecessary.

Or maybe replace it with the SNES text sound, which is less grating and quieter.

Never noticed that and I see your point about the armor parts in Necrbat and Kraken's stages being a pain.

Speaking of Kraken stage, it could be good to add a few dialogue sentences such as "the energy packs contain their own active triggers, so you can utilize them no matter your Z-Buster is fully functional or not" or something else to better explain why Zero can still use the Z-Buster to shoot energy packs to the wall, after his Z-Buster being damaged in the opening stage if player picks Fourth Armor X.

That scenario is no longer an issue as Zero will always have his buster no matter who you pick.

That being said, that is still one of the most frustrating parts of the game. Adding a couple more energy balls to the jet bike run so that it no longer requires perfection would be really nice.

I agree. That stage is one of the worst things in the game. Then again, I don't like vehicle only stages in platformers to begin with.

Have we seen the new MMX5 modding tool like Megaman X6 this yet? This would be fun like that!
