Various updates
Site news, by Dr. Cossack on 26 June 2001 at 0:00

New Fan Art
Spring Man sent me another of his great Fan Art pictures, so I added this one to the Fan Art section. This time, he drew an original character: Venom Hydra.

New Faxes
Capcom Japan blessed us with another update to their great faxes. This time, two faxes are related to the upcoming Mega Man games:

The first fax shows more about Forte EXE (Bass EXE) in Rockman EXE (yes, Forte is in EXE 1. No known word about EXE 2 yet. Don't be mistaken like most people.) We see Mega Man EXE fighting him, then how Forte attacks the ennemies. Click here to view the fax.

The second fax is dedicated to Mega Man Xtreme 2 and X6. Capcom Japan finally put up some pictures of X6, something they didn't do before (last screens were from Capcom of America). We have some new screenshots of Xtreme 2, with the stages of Flame Mammoth, Sting Chameleon, Launch Octopus, Toxic Seahorse (yes, an X3 stage!) and another stage I don't recognize... We also see Iris and the new enemy (Soul Eraser). Iris isn't looking exactly as she did in X4. She doesn't have her hat, and her chest doesn't have the same colors. Finally, at the bottom of the fax, we see some screenshots of the Intro stage of X6. Click here to see this fax.

New Rockboard Translation!
Projects, by Dr. Cossack on 18 June 2001 at 0:00

New Rockboard Translation Patch!
After a long wait, I finally did another translation patch for the Rockboard translation! Here is what's new:


  • The title screen is completely in English now.
  • Some of the in-game menues have been translated.
  • The Met Race mini-game has been given a custom font, and is now completely translated.
  • Some of the setup menues text as been improved.
  • A small part of the in-game text has been translated.
  • I've learned a lot more about how the game works, so I'll be able to work faster.

The new patch brings the game to be 10% translated now. I've also updated all pages related to the Rockboard Translation to show the current translation status. Get the new patch now!

Release dates
According to the Mega Man Battle Network page on Capcom website, MMBN is now scheduled to be released on the October 15, 2001. Another delay for that game...

A bit late, but...
This was reported a few days ago, but I couldn't post it here before. On Capcom Japan website, at this page, you can see another upcoming event for the Japanese company. There, gamers with a GBA and Rockman EXE will be able to unlock a new character for the game: Forte (Bass) EXE! Fans of Bass will be please to know that he is in the game.

Rockman EXE 2 as also be announced, with a novelty that was only going with the original series games so far: the infamous "design your own robot master" is opened for EXE 2! This means that some robots we will encounter in this game will be done by fans!

Capcom Japan released the series of fax #148. This time, we can see some more Rockman EXE figurines that are going to be released in Japan soon (if not done already). I'll try to get my hands on those too, to add more stuff to my Mega Man Battle Network Merchandise section. Click here to see the new fax.

Thanks to Servbot #20 for the news.

Message board reopening!
I completed the update on the Message Board, so you can now post again! To know exactly what's new, just enter the System Announcements section. Go ahead to see the changes!

Fan Art updates
I made two mistakes when I last updated the Fan Art picture: one of the picture wasn't even uploaded, while the Mega Man X picture by Chicoboltsi wasn't the latest error... But errors are now fixed. I also added a great picture made by Spring Man. Be sure to check out his "Feud" picture from the Fan Art section!

Downloads notice
I added to the Downloads section a quick notice: the infamous Wily Wars save state work only for the english version of the ROM, not the Japanese one!

Message Board is down
Site news, by Dr. Cossack on 6 June 2001 at 0:00

I'll be using the next couple of days to improve the Message Board, so it will be down during that time. Sorry about it.

Also, I got an e-mail from someone called "Max". If you read this, I cannot answer to you because you gave me a wrong e-mail address. Can you please send me another message with a valid address? Thanks.

Minor update
Since Bolt Kraken left my message board, I removed the notice about the share of the board between the two of us.

Rockboard translation progress
I did more work on the Rockboard translation today. The Met Race mini-game is now translated at approximately 60%. I didn't changed a lot of text, but I figured out many details about how the game is working to generate the text strings, so it will help me to understand how to hack it without creating errors.

Work, work...
I'll be working a lot of hours this week, so I may not be able to do much progress on anything... Sorry about that. I have 3 months out of school, but I'm working most of the time...
