Links to stuff

Hey there!

It's no surprise this blog is long-abandoned. (The real stuff happens on Twitter these days.) But that doesn't mean this doesn't continue to be an important destination to certain visitors. One reason people may land here is for various downloads I've put up over the years. Below are links to two important collections which may be hard to find now.



Remember this early mobile game? Rockman Xover is a now-defunct original MegaMan/Rockman mobile game from Capcom which featured lots of crossover content from other MegaMan series. It was rather simple to pull the content from the server as it was getting added. As a result, this is a very complete collection of the content that was released for the game. Content from various servers and extracted contents from the app are included. The biggest attraction is all the card art which often featured art rarely seen in such high quality before.


Back in the mid to late-2000s, Flash Player was king when it came to interactive web content. As of this writing, Flash will be discontinued in 4 days and will be prevented from running at all 2 weeks later. Back in its heyday, Capcom sites for the then-new Battle Network and Star Force games used Flash all the time. These sites usually included assets which are hard to find elsewhere then and still are now. I've consolidated all the Flash site collections I had backed up and put them all in one ZIP. The collection includes the raw Flash files and the files decompiled. Inside are files for the following: Ryuusei no Rockman 3 site, some old MegaMan screensavers, Battle Chip Stadium site contents, Capcom USA's MegaMan site, MegaMan NT Warrior site, MegaMan Zero DS collection site, MegaMan Legends 3 site, Rockman EXE 6 site, and many more. It's really unorganized, but it's a lot of stuff.

If you have any other backups of things I may have missed, please send it over. The worst thing that could happen is if these sites, their content, and their experiences could be lost forever.


And one more thing that I worked on this year: ripping all the sprites in every GBA Battle Network game (and BN5DS). Sure, Sprites Inc. exists, and it's a great resource. But all that stuff was hand-ripped back in the day. Something I've wanted to do for a long time was automatically rip all the sprites from all the BN games in a consistent and complete manner. And that's what you'll find in this archive. The sprites are extracted and converted directly from the game, retaining their original categorization, animation count, and origin point (hint: it's the center). It's not as nice to look at as a sprite sheet, but it's very thorough. And because something like this can be automated, so can the production of animated GIFs based on the output frames. Yes, there are animated GIFs of every sprite in the series now! The only thing I couldn't figure out is how to crop all the frames consistently, since you may not always need the blank space around it.

Unused Models Revisited

Remember those unused 3D models found in the first Star Force game that had nothing to do with the game? The Battle Network ones? It's one of my top posts.

Well anyways, thanks to a regular visitor of this blog named "Black Ace", I've taken the models and resources and tried opening them in the now abandoned Mario Kart DS Course Modifier. It's amazing what people can do when they want to modify their favorite game. Such tremendous progress!

So with that, it brings nearly flawless support for viewing NSBMD models, exporting them, and even viewing its animations! Take a peek below for the full scoop.

Wow BN4 Translation Are Awful

Can you believe this game came out over 10 years ago? Let's look over again at how vague, bad, or outright wrong a lot of the BN4 chip descriptions were.

Unused JudgeMan Attack Finally Fixed

Some people may recall a mysterious unused attack discovered a few years ago in MegaMan Battle Network 6 where JudgeMan speaks during battle and summons mysterious objects. Well recently, GM and I looked into that again and made some fantastic new finds!
