Title Screen Restoration and Minor Graphics Fixes

Hack of Mega Man 4


The Japanese version of Mega Man 4 has an unused tile in the title screen graphics that perfectly fits into the black space at the bottom corner of the helmet’s ear. This patch uses this tile for its intended purpose.

This patch also fixes some probable mistakes and regressions from previous games:

  • Correct Roll’s face palette when the screen turns sepia (part of her skin was eye-colored)
  • For the ending, add a pixel of hair by Mega Man’s neck (match Mega Man 2)
  • For Mega Man’s run sprites, add back part of his shoulder and layer his face so it is under his arm (match Mega Man 1 and 2)
  • Fix Rush’s menu animation so his back leg bends instead of using a duplicate tile of his standing leg (match Mega Man 3)

Nice Touches!

Nice touches here and there :D

Megaman 4 is relatively underrated, and it is in fact full of great ideas and better music.

Fixes like this are always welcome! It’d be perfect a fully compatible patch with Japanese Title Screen hack.
