Mega Rock Patch Preview 2

I'm making excellent progress on my patch. Perhaps even to finish this week...

Today I'm announcing the second biggest addition to the patch. It sort of coincides with the first addition. I have converted the Stuff Toy Shop Comp to the Stuff Toy Zone. This area can be considered a bonus area since the extra stuff will go here.
The map's color palette is a reversed version of the ACDC HP  palette. No new characters have been added to the map, though. No NEW characters.


 The meat of the area is the random encounters. Over 20 battles can be fought here and almost all of them will be unlocked in some way. From the start, you should be able to find the battle above. The Test Virus is a tough enemy to defeat due to the high HP. The Test Virus also drops plenty of rare goodies, including Secret chips. If you S-rank the battle, there is a 25% chance you'll get one of the Arm Chips from the Test Virus.


Ghost Data Navis will also be fought here. GD Navis all share a similar color palette and are extremely difficult versions of the original Navi. There are GD versions for all Link Navis. All GD Navis drop rare chips and Secret Chips. If you're lucky enough to S-rank them, you'll win a Giga Chip! For Falzar-version GD Navis, you get secret chips as 9 and S rank.



Finally, after you've obtained the Beast Link Gate icon, you can find this battle. Falzar and Gregar Beasts in their Omega version. As you can see, Gregar Beast has his Fire Sword attack again. Thanks to Prof. 9 for making that possible. His AI has been rewritten to resemble Falzar Beast's AI more. This way, GBeast won't be using Double Slash 97% of the time. The attack is kind of glitchy and the red sword slash sprite doesn't appear. The attack also hits instantly, so it's unlike other swords. Also, if you look closely, you'll see I got rid of that "Megaman gray" that used to be in the white part of the sword. Most of the older chip attacks were using Megaman's old sprite's palette or a variation of it. Back then, the color white was almost always replaced by a high-gray which looked really bothersome on swords. But that's just minor changes.
If you happen to S-rank this battle, you WILL get Double Beast. It's part of completing the Secret Library.

There is still one MAJOR addition this patch will feature. Prof. 9 is almost done with it and the reason he is working on it is because the idea requires extensive ASM hacking.

This is Agro.

For the Toy Stuff Zone, I could help you rearrange the area itself. Maybe edit some OW characters or their position. POSSIBLY text.

The area doesn't need any rearranging because it doesn't need to be changed. The text is already being handled by Prof. 9. I could probably figure out how to move the characters, but you can do that if you wish. I just don't know if the character positions have to be changed for every point of progress in the game.

sohi636: If only there's a way to put back the crossover quest (django and hackjack)

You know I've never even seen your patch. It's pure coincidence.
