Mega Man X3 MSU-1 Audio

Hack of Mega Man X3

Description:

This patch adds support for CD quality audio to Mega Man X3 and Mega Man X3 Zero Project using MSU-1 chip invented by byuu. So far, it is only supported and tested on bsnes, higan and the SD2SNES flashcart.

If the MSU-1 is not detected, the patch plays the original music, thus the patch works on all emulators (but it is less fun to listen to).

The link to the audio pack is included in the README file. It uses the PS1/Saturn music that was edited for looping and volume boosting.

ROM / ISO Information:

  • MEGAMAN X3
  • 2097152 Bytes (16.0000 Mb)
  • Padded: Maybe, 2887 Bytes (0.0220 Mb)
  • Interleaved/Swapped: No
  • Backup unit/emulator header: No
  • Version: 1.0

Great for those that prefer the SNES version, but...

So far a minor issue I’m seeing with the Zero Project emulator MSU-1 version of this patch (encountered with Zero Project v4.1) where there’s an oddity of sorts with Zero’s graphic in the opening cutscene. I can confirm it doesn’t happen with Zero Project v4.1 by itself, this graphic error pops up after applying this patch after the Zero Project patch. I hope DarkShock can look into this error that is occurring. Another very minor nitpick is that the Maverick introduction music still uses the SNES version. Other than that, this is a worthy addition to the MSU-1 ROM hacks available since this ROM hack gives Super Nintendo players the ability to enjoy the remixed CD soundtrack from the PlayStation, Saturn, PC ports without having the load times of those ports bog things down.

Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
