Makes X5 a playable experience

Reviewed By: Supergamerguy on 14 Jun 2021

Even though I still didn’t like Mega Man X5 when I first played it recently, this patch made that playthrough bearable by removing one of the worst design choices this series has ever seen: Alia’s dialogue. I had a smooth experience when these text popups were absent, and when I watched some videos of the vanilla game and saw how frequently those text boxes interrupted gameplay, I was stunned at how they made it into the final game. This hack is worth recommending on that “feature” removal alone, and the other benefits are a nice cherry on top of this package.
