Mega Man X: NEW Hard Type
Mega Man X: New Hard Type is a WIP retake of the Mega Man X: Hard Type mod. It greatly expands the scope of the project with the addition of new modding tools that allow more radical redesign of the levels.

List of changes for the final version:

Level changes: Every single level will be redesigned from scratch. More enemies, completely new, reimagined areas. Upgrades locations completely relocated and others. Note that while this is called "Hard Type", it's simply a reimagine of the old stages with a more competent difficulty curve, and should not be mistagged with names like "Kaizo". Such concepts are out of this project's scope.

Gameplay rebalances:

Upgrades get a few more uses for further rebalance between them.

  • X starts the game with dash enabled.
  • Leg Upgrade allows for higher jump height, and decreased wall slide speed. When combined with the Arm Upgrade, it also allows for faster ladder climbing.
  • Head Upgrade recovers half of a SubTank's capacity each die X dies.
  • Body Upgrade now only reduces 25% of incoming damage.
  • Arm Upgrade functions the same as the original: Enables third level charge of the buster and allows for special weapons charging.
  • Hadouken is not longer a 1-shot and it's easier to fire / land. Details to come.
  • Zero gives an upgrade to X after the Vile battle. No spoilers.

Other gameplay rebalances.

  • X gets a SubTank for every 2 SubTank Pieces. By grabbing all 4 SubTank Pieces, you get 2 SubTanks total. SubTank Piece Counter added in the pause screen.
  • Infinite Lives. Death Counter up to 999 added in the pause screen.
  • Weapon speeds get rebalanced. Weapon damage gets rebalanced. Weapon usage cost gets rebalanced. Duration of Sting Chameleon's charged attack gets rebalanced (Yes, I typed that separatedly).
  • Invincible frames after hit are slightly reduced (emphasis on the word slightly).
  • Health drop rates are unchanged.
  • "Spec Mode" (Little button in the bottom left in the Select Stage screen) now includes difficulty labels for all stages, so the player can pick a stage with the difficulty they want most. They also include the upgrades in the stage as well.
  • Stages can be exited at any given time, with no need to beat them first. Only notable exception is Highway Stage (since it's the Intro Stage).

Enemies get their fair rebalance, as well.

  • Enemies get faster and more reactive.
  • Enemies deal more damage.
  • Enemies are more grouped and better synergized.
  • Enemies drink your tears.
