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.

A highly recommended patch!

Reviewed By: BulkSlash on 09 Jun 2020

I can definitely recommend this patch, just load up Armour Armadillo’s stage and watch how the mine cart zooms through the last section with all the flying enemies without a hint of slowdown. It actually feels like the game is running too fast because I’m so used to the slowdown there!

The addition of saving the controls and password to SRAM is also a welcome feature. If I had one wish, I’d like to see a patch for the Japanese ROM too.
