Mega Man X SA1

Hack of Mega Man X

Description:

SA-1 is a co-processor present in some SNES games. Being roughly four times faster than the main CPU it can significantly improve a game’s performance and that is the purpose of this hack, to remove slowdowns present in the original Mega Man X.

Other changes include:

  • Leg Dash defaulted to the L button.
  • Generated passwords are saved into SRAM
  • Control scheme saved into SRAM.
  • Subtanks stop depleting at full health.
  • Disabled double-tap to dash.(optional)

ONLY APPLY ONE PATCH:

  • mmxsa1.ips
  • mmxsa1_double_tap_disabled.ips

Besides zsnes, it should run on all emulators.

Great hack, but needs some bug fixes

Reviewed By: drunk_caterpillar on 25 May 2020

[Edit] There’s a bug in the charged version of the Chameleon Sting. The character still flickers but now the colour of X doesn’t shift through different hues.

I originally had tried the v1.0 patch and, while impressed, couldn’t recommend it because there were a handful of bugs that held it back from being better than the original release. With the v1.1 update though, the SA-1 version works nearly as well but now with SRAM saving, a few QoL improvements, and more consistent performance during strenuous scenes. This is the way I’ll be playing Mega Man X from now on and I totally recommend it, although there are still one or two bugs that need fixing.

Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
