New Mega Man X7 translation project
X Series, posted by Dr. Cossack on February 21, 2017 at 23:51 [Link]

As some of you know, Mega Man X7 received a PC release several years ago, but that only happened in Korea. As such, the dialogue and text is hard if not impossible to follow for players living in other regions of the world.

To help with that, Twig released two patches to swap the Korean data with the English set, essentially turning the game into an English release. This made the game very playable, but the work wasn't complete either.

To further improve on this, Gnite has released a new set of patches for the game. These focus on the audio aspect: they replace more dialogue with the English version, especially on cutscenes, along with correcting the pitch of several effects. These files, along with the installation instructions, are now available on his website.

This is a work in progress that should see future updates to correct even more issues, so I suggest that you keep an eye on Gnite Productions for new information!

First details on the new Mega Man TV series
Misc Mega Man, posted by Dr. Cossack on May 26, 2016 at 13:33 [Link]

Fresh off the (virtual) press, the first details on the upcoming Mega Man TV series have surfaced on Capcom Unity. Here's the basic setting of the upcoming show:

"The new animated Mega Man series will follow Aki Light – a normal, upbeat, and above all optimistic young school-aged robot living in Silicon City. He soon learns that deep within his programming are secret protocols that allow him to transform – giving him nanocore armor, a Mega Buster, and the iconic helmet to turn him into a superhero – Mega Man!

Promising exciting new technologies and new robots, the series will follow the adventures and trials of Aki Light – a.k.a. Mega Man – as he faces off against threats to Silicon City, while trying to keep his superhero identity a secret and maintain a normal robot schoolkid life. "

The series is scheduled to air next year, to mark a reboot of sorts of the series that lines up with its 30th anniversary.

Sixteenth anniversary!
Site news, posted by Dr. Cossack on May 6, 2016 at 22:01 [Link]

The clock keeps on ticking, and the Mega Man PC Website: Dr. Cossack's Lab turns 16 today!

Once again, the past year has been rather quiet for the franchise as a whole. The Mega Man Legacy Collection has been released on multiple platforms, giving players a chance to replay the earliest six games of the original series. Unfortunately, Archie's ongoing Mega Man comic series was also put in hiatus, which is likely to turn either in an outright cancellation, or a reboot to go along Capcom's upcoming Mega Man TV series. That's set to debut next year, and one can likely look forward to a tie-in game or two, yet to be announced.

Thank you for being around to this day!

The form used to e-mail me directly has proven to be unreliable lately, so I've removed it entirely. You can always reach me by sending a proper e-mail or contacting me through the forums.

If you tried to send me a message in the past month or so and I haven't replied to you, it's entirely possible that the message got lost. Don't hesitate to try again!

New Mega Man TV series coming in 2017!
Misc Mega Man, posted by Dr. Cossack on June 2, 2015 at 14:43 [Link]

Hot off the press, Capcom USA just announced that a brand new, animated Mega Man series would launch in North America in 2017. This timing coincides with the 30th anniversary of the franchise. The new project will be managed by Dentsu Entertainment USA, who also obtained the worldwide rights for the this new Mega Man franchise on television. Production itself will be done by Man of Action Entertainment, the studio responsible for the Ben 10 and Generator Rex series.

There are few details available at this point, which isn't too surprising considering that this project's release is still two years away. Any tie-ins, whether merchandise or games, would be announced at a later time.

Fifteenth anniversary!
Site news, posted by Dr. Cossack on May 6, 2015 at 13:42 [Link]

As the sixth of May rolls around, once again the Mega Man PC Website: Dr. Cossack's Lab celebrates another anniversary, making this the fifteenth!

This has been a quiet year for both the franchise and this website, with no new game announcement to talk about. The Mega Man comic from Archie is still going strong, with a new crossover with the Sonic series starting next month. Meanwhile, Capcom is still pushing more games from the past to various virtual console platforms, and I'm working on a few projects of my own as well.

Hopefully, something interesting will be announced sometime in the future so we can do more than stare at tumbleweeds. In the meantime, thank you very much for your ongoing interest in this place!
