The Mega Man Battle Network 4 maps are now finally complete thanks to Mega Boy's efforts. All areas are done, in the new style of course. This means that all of the six main games are covered, along with Rockman EXE 4.5.
The ever-going Fan Art section now holds two new pictures from two new artists. Tiga1000 went for a feminine twist of Mega Man with a picture featuring "Mega Man Woman". The second artist, DarkShadow, chose the ever-popular duo of X and Zero. The two new pictures are here.
This update also marks the opening on a new page within the music section: fan remixes! Brian Bibbo approached me with four solid remixes based on the Original series. You can download his take on the Air Man, Crash Man, Flash Man and Spark Man themes in the newly-opened page. I also now accept music submissions. As such, if you sequenced or remixed a theme from any Mega Man theme, send it my way! I'll take MIDIs, MP3s and modules (IT, S3M, etc.)
I have updated the main page layout to improve it in some ways. First of all, you probably noticed the new "Latest news" header. I think it adds a little something that was missing on this page. I also copied the RSS icon to the top of the news to give it some added visibility. On a side note, the RSS feed has been updated a bit to fix the reported update times (they were off by a few hours), and to carry some more information.
The right sidebar now features a "Random quote of the Day", which displays a new quote from a random Mega Man game every day. The list of quotes was compiled thanks to some help from Breakman.
Finally, another new item on the right sidebar is called "Help this website!". Several people write to me offering to help with the website in some way, but they usually don't know what they can do. This new list features several interactive sections of the site where user input is especially welcome. When I'll have more options for interested users, they will be added to that section.
Here is a description of the various options now available:
Now that I'm done playing through the main story of Mega Man Battle Network 5, I've put the maps for that game in a proper order. Just like with the previous games, you'll find them in different categories along with the correct names for the various areas.
Mega Boy still has some love for the Mega Man Battle Network games, as he updated his Mega Man Battle Network 1 maps to match with the style he used in his last few updates. The new set of maps is easier to understand since it uses the same display style as the game itself. If you're struggling to get through that annoying PowerPlant stage, those maps will definitely help you!
