Wow! it really feels like a finished product, I hope you make it through completely.
I like very much seeing word addressing for variables.

Have you used original code as a basis? Learn much that way?

Thinking of using it as a basis for an original game?

Wow ! didn't expected that :D It looks really good and even better than the original on some aspect (it feels more reactive / more dynamic). Also the graphics are very nice, very good arts conversion. I really hope you get it complete (just need a proper intro / menu screen and probably some other stuff). Keep up your awesome work !

Sorry for my weak English.

I'm doing the game 100% in asm using the Macro Assembler AS, the sound driver is the excellent XGM of the wizard Stef, the sound effects are of Rockman X4 - Saturn (PCM), the songs are of the incredible Savaged Regime, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9CzkswHHxQI
who kindly provided me with the original files.

The idea is to make the game 100% complete, but I always think that it would be cool to create a version exclusively for MegaDrive / Genesis using the assets of the 3 games of SNES, type a fan game, but perfect as possible.

Not exactly, the RAM map served me to use the same values in several variables, http://tasvideos.org/GameResources/SNES ... AMMap.html, but the routines are all done by me. The level_format is the same as the original.

With the engine ready and the tools that I have, I could use it to make an original game, but it is difficult to create the assets alone. I'm also planning to try a SunsetRiders port from Arcade for megadrive, but I'm having trouble ripping the original sprites.

Just logged here to thank you A LOT for this AMAZING project! Is like a dream come true.
I was amazed how you can show a lot of enemies at same time (more than in the SNES) without any slowdown. The AI of the enemies and the overall feel is so accurate to the original game too!
Looks like you completed the hardest things to do in a port!

If i could help you to finish this project...
Megaman X is so Mega Drive that a project like this need to be finished!

Nice to see that you want to port Sunset Riders to the Genny too, i could help you with sprites rips, art conversion, BGM, but lets finish Megaman X... PLEASE!

You may have already seen these items, but there's a ROM map and partial disassembly here: https://www.smwcentral.net/?p=viewthread&t=82064

...and some game mechanics are summarized here: http://sprites-inc.co.uk/showthread.php?tid=1794

Thank you *very* much for doing this! I appreciate your hard work and am excited to see the final product. Muito Obrigado. :D
