Mega Man X2 Comatability Fix Possible?
« on: 12/Jul/2015 09:10:02 PM »
I read in this post http://forum.retrode.org/index.php/topic,239.msg1732.html that Mega Man X2 is not compatable with the Retrode since it has 2 rom chips instead of one. Is this something that could be fixed with a firmware update? I'm sure that it's not that big of a priority since it's just one game but I wanted to know the possibility of a fix.

Look at this thread, from this post: http://forums.nesdev.com/viewtopic.php?p=108426&sid=7819b2aa13d85364259b71549ad1e451#p108426

Could that dump code somehow be added to a firmware update, or like a special version of the firmware for Mega Man X2?

We're preparing to release the sources to the firmware. From then on, if you have time, go for it.

I no longer sell the Retrode. For sales inquiries, please contact our friends at DragonBox.

That sounds like an end of official firmware support to me. Would I be correct?

Awesome! There can only be progress on its compatibility with this.

There never was official support for Mega Man X2. No "end" of anything, but a potential beginning of many things.

@Matthias_H has any further thought been given to releasing the source? (I realize there are multile reasons why you might not release the sorce, including a concern that you would need to put time into cleaning the source up and that such time might not be available). To the extent you don’t have short term plans to release the source, I would ask that you consider releasing it in the future if you ever decide to step away permanently, I think the recent work that has been done with respect to N64 save support shows how important folks having access to it can be.
