Patch quick-fix

The patch needed a quick fix. Apparently the Link Navi quest bug was no isolated incident. The routine for enabling leveling status for Link Navis interfered with the flag that allowed you to play as them. The routine has been fixed and labeled now. If you are ever stuck at this part now, just keep trying to exit until you can return to the real world. Thanks to Prof. 9 for the fix.
Also, the Falzar RV battle has been added. I know expert players won't have a problem, but it's a nice bonus battle for getting absolutely everything. After obtaining all 9 icons, go to the CopyBot Comp and Falzar RV becomes a random encounter.

Mega Rock Patch V3.02 can be downloaded from the link below.

Now is probably the best time to start working on Hard Mode. I assume the major bugs are already taken care of. I was planning on using the OSS mugshots of Lan and Megaman fr Hard Mode. I tried to get rid of the awkwardness. Tell me if something is still odd about them.

These are the originals.


Here are the modified ones.

I don't see the difference. O_o

I'm seeing some artifacts on Lan's bandanna. What did you change?

Hey nice job on the patch.

Hm, I think MegaMan's right eye (the eye on the left) makes it look awkward, because it makes it seem like he's staring to his right with shifty eyes or something. I'd rather see it drawn more like the original, so it's like he's looking straight ahead. The palette fix is nice though, to give him the proper green eyes, and I like how the shoulder stands out more.

As for Lan, it's pretty nice. Personally, I'd prefer his nose more centered though... Maybe closer to this:

Anyways, good luck on your patch!

The nose could use some work I guess. But on Megaman's eye, I practically remade the whole thing. At first I didn't change much but then it started to seem more cross-eyed like the old one was. My aim was to get his right eye to look like it's in the same position as his left eye.

Nol said...

Yeah, I saw what you're trying to do. I think maybe raising the eye on the left (his right eye) might work better.

Just a rough edit to give you an idea:

I changed his nose angle too, but I don't think that's really necessary. I drew a new mouth for fun too because his current dull expression annoys me. >_>

Anyways, yeah, I think if you raised the eye, then it would look more like he's staring straight. The eye on the right could have the right edge of the white part coloured with a skin tone too to make it look smaller. I think because the white of his eye is so big and angled that it looks like the eye is staring more to his right.

But anyways, it already looks good as it is, so I don't think you need to spend much effort on it.

Mega Rock.exe said...

I see. I still must take into consideration that the original had some correctness. The nose could be moved though and I modified the eye slightly. The dull expression will match the mugshot in the end though. Just wait.

Mega Rock.exe said...

Is this more correct?

Nol said...

Yeah, I think the nose move helped, and the eye looks cleaner now. I like the brighter yellow too. Good job!

Mega Rock.exe said...

I'm somehow still bothered by it and flipped it around to find more errors. I hope I didn't ruin it.

I found a new bug while I was playing.

The game freezes if you try to skip the cutscene after you beat FBeast Megaman and if you try to read normally it fades to black after you go through all the text and just hangs at black screen.

Mega Rock.exe said...

Oh, that's terrible. If you have a save or state save, please send it to me. I will try to fix it ASAP.

Heres a link then.

Mega Rock.exe said...

Save doesn't work for me. Did you have cheats on?

Anonymous said...

Yeah, I'll get a new save up for you in a few minutes.

Anonymous said...

Actually, scratch that. It looks like my save file got erased, so I'll have to get back to the point I was at.

Mega Rock.exe said...

You don't have to. I got it working. You were using VBA-M with lots of cheats on. It's very difficult to load on another VBA because of the cheats.

Mega Rock.exe said...

Your progress is still there and the save is still trying to be fixed.

Mega Rock.exe said...

Temporary fix. You're at the Colonel battle with 100HP on state save 2. Good luck.
