Megaman X4: Stylish Run
« on: March 24, 2011, 01:01:07 AM »
I decided to undertake a challenge for Megaman X4, called the Stylish Run. What makes this run stylish, you ask? Here I play under the following conditions:

- No damage
- No armor/heart tanks
- No boss weaknesses; weapons are okay otherwise, and Reaper Sigma is an obvious exception.
- This run uses Hypershell's custom MMX4 PC hack, which changes X's voice actor to that of Mark Gatha. (Thanks!)
- Custom BGM is added to the game by replacing the source files of the game. This allows custom music while still keeping the game's sounds intact.
- I also use X's alternate color just because it's awesome!

These conditions not only make the game challenging, but it'll be a unique run due to the modifications.  This should help it stick out from the other runs that are floating around on YT.  Anwho, here are the ones that I've finished so far:

Alright, finished with
Jet Stingray
now.  Definitely wasn't as easy as I thought it would be.

Web Spider
is a-finished.  Switched recorders so the quality's better than the last 3, not that those were bad at all.

Here's
Storm Owl
, arguably the hardest Maverick fight in X4.  Good thing he wasn't in a bad mood when I got to him.  :|

Well, as for the sound effects, Hypershell made a hack a little while ago of X4's PC version.  This hack changed X's voice clips to ones from Mark Gatha (X8-CM), and Zero's to Lucas Gilbertson (X8-CM).  The Iris death scene is re-dubbed IIRC

In case of the BGM, MMX4 PC uses .SE files for the music.  Funny thing is, they're just WAV files under a different name.  All I had to do was convert some of my songs to the WAV format, and from there replace the ones in MMX4's respective music folder.

Yeah! Rocking that Volcano Valley! I must ask though, what songs are you using? I know a few of them (Adabat Day for Web Spider, VV Act 2 for Magma Dragoon.) but others are kinda confusing.

So, what I'm trying to say is, can you please put up a tracklist? :)

Oh, I forgot to mention that the boss theme is the Weather Channel Storm Alert theme (2006).  Yes, I fight bosses to Weather Channel music.  ůVů

Well, with this semester winding down I was able to take a little break and clear the short and sweet
Space Port
stage.

Where can I download the voice act hack?

Right here

Yeah, I consider them the scariest "normal" enemy in the game.  They're bloodthirsty and scrolling them off of the screen is a chore in itself.  They're surprisingly intelligent, too.

Well, I've been putting this off for a while due to a number of reasons (college, general laziness, etc), but here's the next installment of the run;
Final Weapon Part I
!  For whatever reason Fraps didn't want to record the cutscene involving Double slaughtering the reploids, leaving only audio with a black screen.   X(

If that counts as a hint then a truck crashing through your wall counts as subtle.

You win for using Battle for Survival for the double fight. Well done, one more stage to go.

For those curious, yes, I am still working on getting the last part done.  I hope to have it finished within the next couple of days; losing out to Sigma's dumb debris attack is soul-crushing after trekking it through to him without prior damage.  X(

Posted on: July 15, 2011, 00:28:03
Well, I
finished it
, though not in the way I would have liked.  I ended up having to split it between the mavericks and Sigma due to a certain move (more in the excerpt from teh video description below):

Well, wasn't sure if I wanted to or not, but I'm gonna go through it as Zero now.  So the first segment is up now!  Same conditions as before, more or less:

- No damage
- No sub/heart tanks
- No boss weaknesses; special techniques are okay otherwise, and Reaper Sigma is an obvious exception.
- This run uses Hypershell's custom MMX4 PC hack, which changes Zero's voice actor to that of Lucas Gilbertson. (Thanks!)
- Custom BGM is added to the game by replacing the source files of the game. This allows custom music while still keeping the game's sounds intact.
- Black Zero FTW!

Some songs will be changed around and some will remain the same.
