Breaks Mega Man 1 Wily Stage 2

Reviewed By: KalasZX on 15 Apr 2020

I want to like this patch. I really do. It addresses some of the issues that make me not to play these versions of the games. But the cure is worse than the disease.

There is an absolutely insane amount of slowdown in Wily stage 2 in Mega Man 1. When I say insane, I’m talking about it taking close to a minute for Mega Man to beam into the stage. The emulator states it’s running at 60fps, but in reality the game moves at less than 1fps. The issue was present in Fusion and Regen. No amount of overclocking in Regen could counteract the slowdown. My computer was not able to overclock it enough to get it anywhere close to normal speed before my processor tapped out. It got to around 5fps of gameplay before my processor hit 100%.

Additional issues: Input delay is not fixed. At all. Sliding under the boss in Wily stage 1 when it is moving still results in taking a hit. Other slowdown issues are exactly as they were in the original.

This patch starts to address the issues that make Wily Wars the worst rendition of the first 3 games, in theory. If it didn’t break that stage I would call it a solid step in the right direction. That none of the other reviews got fan enough to encounter the bug makes me wonder how long they played or if I’m just the only geek that still plays the first game.
