Hidden Level Editor Discovered in Rockman 8 Alpha Version
Hey, you remember that really early alpha build of Rockman 8 we released some years ago, right? It turns out there's something pretty neat tucked away in the code. A one Mark G. discovered an unused stage editor, accessible through a debug menu, which is far more functional than the one in the second beta. Furthermore, it's possible to test any modifications in real-time!
But how does one without ASM hacking know-how get to fiddle around with these neat tools? Fortunately, Mark has created a modified ISO of the alpha build, which contains this newly-discovered functionality, along with any details needed to properly use it. Feel free to download it here. Be sure to check out the included README file!
Mark also hopes to reverse engineer these tools into a PC application, thereby opening the doors to Mega Man 8 inspired fan-games. We'll keep you posted on future developments!
