New counter, Message board posts
Site news, posted by Dr. Cossack on 31 March 2001 at 0:00 [Link]

I changed the hit counter on the main page. I was using services, but they are no longer free, and I'm not going to pay 20$ / month only to know the number of people who visits here. I'm now using services (good website, by the way). Also, I'm looking for some feedback, so I made a couple of posts on the message board. I would really appreciate it if you took a couple of minutes to go there and tell me what you think. To see what I posted, go to the message board, enter the Mega Man section, then click on Mega Man PC Website comments. Go post there!

Mega Man EXE and SAR
Misc Mega Man, posted by Dr. Cossack on 29 March 2001 at 0:00 [Link]

Something new: I did a preview of the upcoming Mega Man EXE, so you can know a bit better what to expect in the game. It's still uncomplete, but all characters are there, along with a movie preview. Also, I added a link to see the introduction movie of SuperAdventure Rockman. If you want to know what is the graphic level of that game, check that out!

Some more links
Site news, posted by Dr. Cossack on 28 March 2001 at 0:00 [Link]

I added some links in the Links by Characters page. Those links were sent to me 3 weeks ago, but I forgot to put them up earlier... Sorry. I also removed the survey from the left menu, since I got all the answers I needed. Thanks to all of you who answered! In the next few days, expect more updates, as I have more free time to work on the website.

Quick update.

I added a link to my survey in the left menu. Please, take a few minutes to answer it! I need 50 people to answer... It's important for me!

I'm currently doing a school project. We are a team of 5 people simulating a shoe company. Because of that, we need to see what consumers wants while buying shoes. So, I took the time to set up an online survey to get your feedback. Please, would you spend a couple of minutes to answer it? It's important for my Administration class. Online survey about shoes. Thanks! On a side note, I removed the ICQ status indicator at the left, it was always on Disabled...

Lot of things.

Ok, I wasn't able to keep my daily updates running for long, but I'll do my best :-)

RIP Sega's President
Isao Okawa, who was the president of Sega, died yesterday of a heart failure. He was 74 years old. He recently gave a big donation (695.7 million $) to the company to help it to get over the Dreamcast losses. We don't know yet who will take Sega's lead.

Mega Man 5 for PC current status
I'm still working on that game. These days, I'm working on a level editor, so I can do the levels to use in the game. Also, when Mega Man PC is released, YOU will be able to create your own Mega Man levels using it! Don't you think that's a good idea? ;-)

ICQ and Rockboard screenshots
Projects, posted by Dr. Cossack on 8 March 2001 at 0:00 [Link]

I added a little picture at the top of the menu to tell if I'm currently online or not. Sometimes it will just say Disabled, without reason... at least it's there. Note that even if you see that I'm online, it doesn't indicate that I can answer to e-mails and such: I'm online half of the day anyway :-)

Also, I uploaded a few more screenshots of the Rockboard translation for you to see where this is going.

About the Wily Tower save state...
Site news, posted by Dr. Cossack on 7 March 2001 at 0:00 [Link]

Hello all! I was requested to specify that the Wily Tower save state was created by Havok, using Save State Master 7.0, made by Nightmare Zero. This neat software can be downloaded from Mega Man Masters.

E-mail script fixed
Site news, posted by Dr. Cossack on 6 March 2001 at 0:00 [Link]

Look at me, I'm updating daily, I'm updating daily! *ahem* Seriously, I'm finally able to update more often, as I promised after that website revamp at the end of January. On another note, someone warned me that the e-mail form in the contact page wasn't working. I fixed it, so you can now send me messages directly!

Blue, blue, blue!

Maybe some of you saw it, maybe some others like me didn't have the chance to see that Mega Man commercial airing at some channels in the US. I managed to find that Capcom is putting the commercial to download on their website! It's on their Mega Man page, available in two sizes.

Soul body...
X Series, posted by Dr. Cossack on 4 March 2001 at 0:00 [Link]

*X5 SPOILERS* Hello! This is a quick update to show you 2 pictures. It seems that most people never noticed that in X5: when you defeat Zero playing as X, or defeat X playing as Zero, your opponent will use the Soul Body against you. Since very few people ever noticed this, I got two screenshots of that final attack.

After some days (or is it weeks?) to work on it, I finally released MegaChess! This is a Chess board, playable on the Internet, against your friends! For more information, go to the MegaChess section to learn more about this. Let me tell you, that game is a lot of fun!

Battle Network Series, posted by Dr. Cossack on 1 March 2001 at 0:00 [Link]

There's a new fax on Capcom Japan website, showing new screenshots for the upcoming Rockman EXE: we can now see clearly Fire Man EXE, Ice Man EXE and... Number Man? It looks like that game will include some original bosses after all. I'm looking forward to this game...
