If you've invested a decent amount of time in Mega Man Legacy Collection you've no doubt noticed a few audio and graphical hiccups. The Steam version is the worst offender at the moment: sound errors, black screens, Windows 7 compatibility issues, and so forth. Fortunately these problems have not fallen of deaf ears; Capcom and Digital Eclipse are reportedly working on fixes.
Capcom USA's Ray Jimenez sounds off on the Steam forums:
First off, I would like to apologize on behalf of Capcom and Digital Eclipse on the issues that some of you are having with Mega Man Legacy Collection. Both Capcom and Digital Eclipse have been watching the forums and are aware of the issues that are going on. We are currently collating data and in the process of coming up with fixes. The team at Digital Eclipse are extremely hard working, but they are a small indie team and it will take a while for fixes to be made and sent through QA.
So, please bear with us. I hope some of the work arounds your fellow Steam users have found can help for now, but we strive to have these fixed naturally. Please check in on this thread from time to time as I’ll use it to update you on our timeline and what fixes are going up.
The game's producer, Frank Cifaldi, adds:
Hey, MMLC players: We're monitoring threads and are aware of issues. As Capcom says, fixes are coming. I can't get more specific than that.— Frank Cifaldi (@frankcifaldi) August 28, 2015
@Omaewamo there are two separate audio issues, the crackly distortion is mostly exclusive to ps4. we suspect the popping is related too.— Frank Cifaldi (@frankcifaldi) August 28, 2015
@Omaewamo the incorrect notes are exclusive to xbox one and pc, and we have a fix already— Frank Cifaldi (@frankcifaldi) August 28, 2015
Long story short, Capcom is committed to hammering these issues out. We can't say for sure when they'll be live, but it's happening. Stay tuned!@Omaewamo yep, that specific issue has to do with the particular way ps4 handles audio vs. microsoft.— Frank Cifaldi (@frankcifaldi) August 28, 2015
so, that's the "authentic" and "most faithful" port that you need to patch it up? i've got another reason on why the anniversary collection is the superior one.ReplyDelete
Sure you do, what with Anniversary's input lag, messed up 2A03 playback, warped audio in Mega Man 8, the complete ABSENCE of the ending screen in Mega Man 7, all of which can never be fixed either.Delete
lag input? you mean the tiny little delay that doesn't change much? 2A03 messed up playback? did you checked this lazy collection? it has more issues than anniversary could ever been. warped audio in MM8? what issue? the absence of the ending in MM7? yea, that's BS.Delete
As opposed to the entire absence of Megaman 7 and 8 (And Power Battles/Fighters) altogether in this, hmmmm?Delete
Neither game is perfect. I remember people complaining about the Anniversary Collection when it initially came out.Delete
Guess what: If you're a longtime Mega Man fan that's played the NES games and still owns an 11 year old PS2 game, this game wasn't made for you. I know it's hard to swallow but there it is.
actually, it's pretty easy but the problem is this lazy collection hasn't done anything new to this collection. they could've fix the slowdown, add difficulties, make saves only happen after i finish a level, have a complete work add-ons, have an option for playing the original NES music and psx arranged music, have an actual challenge mode not take segments from the original games and claim it's an all new challenge, have a video showing us "the making of mega man" document video, have the wily tower like in sega megadrive version and an actual turbo button that deals damage to regular enemy.
half of those things i mentioned are in the anniversary collection. what's this lazy collection excuse? a 1:1 perfect emulation? wii, 3ds, wii u and ps3 already covered those games on classic section.
At least Anniversary Collection had 7/8 and the spinoff game... This game literally has less games to worry about and still arguably messed up worse at launch than that game.Delete
And at least anniversary collection has the excuse of needing to do 3 platforms with different hardware... it's supposed to be easier porting between Xbone/PS4/PC.
Tired of people saying the Anniversary Collection is great. It's garbage compared to Rockman Complete Works 1-6 for PlayStation®. The only reason you'd get that is for a legit copy of Rockman: The Power Battle and Fighters, but even that might have been watered down...Delete
Why don't they just release the Complete Works to the west?Delete
Different people value different things.Delete
For some people the Anniversary Collection is great.
people who say anniversary collection is better are like those who say wily wars was better......Delete
Mega Man Legacy Collection gave steam error Solve problem better Blu Ray Disc without problem Graphics and sound available Microsoft DirectX and Safety Blu Ray Against PiracyReplyDelete
I won't be happy until they fix the Wily Warp exploit in Mega Man 2's Boss Rush challenge. The other fixes are great and all, but that exploit is the only one that bothers me on a personal level because warping to Wily Castle from Air/Bubble/Heatman's room should not trigger a victory!ReplyDelete
Yes, I know why it does that, but that just makes me all the more angry.
Hilariously enough, I kind of just assumed the audio distortion I heard a few times was the game being emulated properly. The NES had its fair share of hiccups too after all.ReplyDelete
I still get a black screen I have moved on though a fix is whatever to me, my money is somewhere else now.ReplyDelete
Wait a minute... They STILL didn't fix that audio distortion before release? I heard this during one of the videos and figured that would be something fixed before everyone purchased this, because that bug was pretty obvious.ReplyDelete
Well, at least they're aware of the issues. I can't get this until the 3DS version arrives next year, however. I hope none of these issues are present in that version.
They also didn't fix the various colorization errors people noticed.Delete
They just didn't care.
At least you guys get to see the menus all I get is blank and sound, the games run but still..............Delete
How did it make it though Qa in the first place?ReplyDelete
The "Bug Fix" package is coming October 23rd. You can get it from the Capcom eShop for $4.99.ReplyDelete
This sounds suspicious. Updates are usually a free thing. New content, on the other hand...Delete
game doesn't seem formatted for my 16:10 monitor, hope they fix that. Also mouse cursor needs to gtfoReplyDelete
