Mega Man 2 + Rockman 2 Sprite Lag Reduction Patch

Hack of Mega Man 2


This patch eliminates a gross inefficiency in MM2/RM2’s sprite buffer clearing method, reducing overall CPU usage by about 8% and lag by at least as much.

This patch has both Mega Man 2 and Rockman 2 versions: mm2spritelag.ips and rm2spritelag.ips, respectively.

For the people asking if this is related to Puresabe’s sprite lag reduction hack: not as far as the author knows. The author looked at his hack a little bit after the first person asked. The author doesn’t think they use the same method, but they can’t say for certain without taking more time and understanding his hack better.
