Mega Man X3 - Zero Project V4.4 (Base Mod & Source)

Hack of Mega Man X3

Description:

Note: The project comes with a separate .txt inside for the new locations of many RAM values used in this project since most of the original Game Genie codes used will no longer work due to vast amounts of location changes. Use this file for various cheating needs.

A large modification of Mega Man X3 that allows Zero to be fully playable. Among this there are vast improvements over some aspects of the original game along with a plethora of new features such as a Save/Load system.

This version is considered separate from the original Zero Project since this one has such an entirely rewritten system from the ground up and separate features that people may or may not like compared to the prior version.

Brilliant Redesign

Reviewed By: Aceearly1993 on 22 Jul 2021

If you love Mega Man X3 or the entire X series this is a hack you simply can’t miss by any excuse. Aside from Zero being fully playable through the entire campaign, the overall system received a well crafted redesign, fixed literally anything flawed in the original, and added some cute extras (a certain enhancement can be applied to Zero’s saber to generate shockwaves in New Game+ after meeting specific conditions) In general this is what X3 should be and deserves to be, reviews and words cannot 100% justify how brilliant this hack is and how well it improved from original, you must gain it through your actual experiences in gameplay. Also good luck to find a rom compatible with this patch, the process is very hard and costs me two whole days to get a workable one.
