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.

Awesome!

Reviewed By: ParkerMcFly on 07 Jun 2020

Similar to what the user nobi mentioned, I also noticed the glitch with Chill Penguin. His projectiles go straight through the first ice penguin figure he creates, but not the second.

This is still an amazing hack. Well worth everyone’s time to try out and experience!

My only pet peeve with this hack is that it doesn’t mesh well with the Air Dash/Wall Jump hack by Justin3009. If they could be mixed into one, this would be THE hack that everyone needs to default to.

Hats off to you! Excellent work!

QUICK EDIT: I’ve been trying my damnedest to get this to work with the SNES Classic. However, if I use it via Canoe, it crashes as soon as I turn it on. If I use SNESx9, the game lags to hell. I still believe this is one of the best hacks on RHDN, but I am disappointed that I cannot roll with it on my SNES Classic. If anyone has a work around, I would LOVE to hear about it.
