Mega Man Network Transmission is the estranged cousin of the Battle Network series. Returning to the series' roots, the developers hoped to show a new generation of Mega Man fans the joys of a platforming-adventure title...and instead created an unintentionally-challenging monster of a game that rivals even the most grueling of classic titles.

Difficulty aside, though, the game is a wonderful one to play through if you can muster up the courage and patience to handle it.

Hmmm...
To do:
  • Look into whether LightMap files are used.
  • Difference between the Japanese, US, and European title screen logo.

Unused Graphics

Present in /EnvMap/, these were likely used for graphical testing. Interestingly, the second image seems to be a picture of Chicago, with the John Hancock Center on the far left.

Developer Tools

In various folders, especially those marked test, there are a few reoccurring developer tools:

/EnvMap/

  • EnvTexMake.bat
  • RockmanPicConv.exe

/LightMap/

  • LightTexMap.bat
  • RockmanPicConv.exe

/LoopDemo/

Regional Differences

Hmmm...
To do:
Upload screenshots of Title Screens from Japan and International releases.

In the international versions, voice clips where Lan says "Rockman" are removed since all the voice acting is in Japanese for all versions.
