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.

Other Reviews Unfair

Reviewed By: Krazzyklown on 10 Jun 2018

Most of the no recommendations are from people who either couldn’t get it to work or were upset at the size of the music pack. This is not a fair way to judge the mod and is more projection.

The mod works as intended with only minor bugs in looping as reported by qwertymodo. If you do not like the remixed tracks (not the best) you can get a more faithful pack here.

Overall, this hack is wonderful.
