Mega Man X MSU-1 Audio

Hack of Mega Man X

Description:

This patch is intended to replace all the music from the 1993 SNES game, Mega Man X, with full CD-quality streaming audio using the MSU-1 audio specification created by byuu.

This patch requires the MSU-1 audio ‘chip’ to function, and as such will only function properly with the higan and BSNES emulators, as well as the SD2SNES flash cart.

However, the .spc fallback routine means that if the MSU-1 chip is NOT detected (such as in an emulator that does not support it, like ZSNES or snes9x), the standard audio will play, leaving the game to play as if un-patched. Non-destructive patching, FTW.

A link to a pre-assembled Audio Pack can be found in the Readme.

User Review Information

Seems rather busticated

Reviewed By: Chris Miller on 13 Mar 2015

That is one big honkin’ download for an SNES game.

The file format used here can’t even be played on VLC or any other player I’ve dug up, even ones that are supposed to handle PCM files.

There are any number of file formats that would work better, like mp3, ogg, flac…why would you want to saddle players with files that are ginormous and can’t even be read by anything? It confers no advantage whatsoever.

Version 1.0 Recommended - No
