  1. Version 1.2.0

    2 downloads

    This is a Python 2 script with a bunch of text files used for randomizing Mega Man Battle Network 3. I've taken some liberties to make it more interesting to use. Credit goes to Mountebank, Samfin, Dabomstew, Prof.9, Rockman.EXE, and potentially other people I don't know about/forgot for the original MMBN3 Randomizer I found on Github. Features Supports both Version White and Version Blue! Thanks, Hart-Hunt! The original randomizer featured randomizing of Numberman Code Prizes that give Battle Chips, Battle Chip Folders, Green Mystery Data, and Virus Formations. Those are still here! Lots of text files. They hold a bunch of data that you can mess around with to some extent. Just be sure to back things up in case something goes wrong. Various modifiers are asked of you right off the bat when opening the script. These include Battle Chip Damage and Enemy HP Multipliers and Variance Values, as well as a Custom Run seed and a "Chip Code Roulette" Mode! If a Run Seed is not supplied, it will generate one based on the current time. More details can be found in the included Notes.txt. Instructions Download the randomizer and aquire a rom of Mega Man Battle Network 3. Either version works. Unzip the randomizer into its own folder. You'll need WinZip, 7Zip, WinRar, or whatever else you prefer to uncompress .zip files. Put the rom of MMBN3 White into the folder, next to the randomizer and the text files. Rename the rom to white.gba or blue.gba for their respective versions. Run the Python Script. You'll need Python 2 installed to be able to run it. The script should open a Command Prompt window and ask you to type in some values. Type in what it asks, whatever you feel like will work for the most part, except typing in nothing in a couple of cases. It should be asking for a "Seed" now. Type in anything, it can even use a string. Or don't and let the script generate one. You should now see a bunch of values flood the window until it finally says done and a generated rom named white_randomized.gba should have been created. Open rom_randomized.gba in an emulator to see your changes! Known Issues/Caveats The rom must be a clean copy of Mega Man Battle Network 3. The rom must be in the same directory as the Python script and MUST be named white.gba for the White version or blue.gba for the Blue version. ROM Checksums These checksums are from a clean, self-dumped MMBN3 White rom. If you're going to use this randomizer, you'll need a rom that has these checksums. CRC32: BE4410A MD5: 68817204A691449E655CBA739DBB0165 These checksums are from a clean MMBN3 Blue rom. If you're going to the use this randomizer, you'll need a rom that has these checksums. CRC32: C0C780F9 MD5: 6FE31DF0144759B34AD666BADAACC442
  2. I believe that's probably what it does, though I'm unsure if the story will reflect the changes in its text. Also, I might have to fix a potential bug with the Tutorial's Folders when using Chip Code Roulette Mode 3, the Pseudo Random one. That one is the least-tested and I just realized the tutorial requires two chips to have the same code, so I might have to add some extra code just so the Tutorial folder is functional. EDIT: The Tutorial Folders are still functional, I actually left their Chip Codes untouched by the Roulette Modes. EDIT 2: The All Star mode had a bug where it would not make every letter of every chip the Asterisk symbol. This has been addressed and I've updated the files. Also, I've found out that the Chip Traders and Blue/Purple Mystery Data are not changed at all within the randomizer itself, and I have no idea where to start looking for their offsets. If anything, I'd rather leave them alone for now though, as you basically get every chip just by playing the game anyway. Expect to have some abnormal codes if you're playing any of the new Chip Code Roulette Modes though. This was due to the All Star mode bug mentioned above. NOW it's fixed. EDIT 3: The Chips the game requires you to have are read correctly in the other modes, even though their codes are different. I tested it live on stream using All Star mode, so it should work with the other modes just as well.
  3. MMBN3 White Randomizer I found the original MMBN3 White Randomizer a while ago and decided to tweak it to make things more interesting. Here's the list of changes: Removed the VarSwrd damage penalty (Was 60, now it's back to its default of 160). Added the ability to change all Battle Chip and Program Advance damage values directly with text files. Added the ability to change Virus and Navi HP directly with text files, though I don't have their names listed anywhere, so good luck with that. Added Game Modifiers to play around with Chip Damage/Enemy HP Multipler and Variance values Chip Roulette Modes Added the ability to type in a Seed for the randomizer. It also saves whatever seed you use to a new file for sharing purposes. If you don't supply a seed, it generates one. These are all explained in the included NOTES.txt. Credit goes to Samfin, Prof.9, and Rockman.exe for the original program, and myself for the tweaks. NOTE: This requires Python 2.7 in order to use it without issues. I tried porting it over to 3.3, it was a headache to figure out so I just reverted those changes. Also, I'm no super-genius of a programmer, so don't expect any updates to this from me. As much as I would've like to modify other aspects, I'm just not smart enough to. If you're wondering how I figured out all of this, I used a Hex Editor and notes I found on a major Mega Man Battle Network site, as well as some Python help resources. Known Issues: Jelly Viruses, specifically their wave attack, will crash some emulators while creating sprites in other emulators. I'm not sure if this is an emulator-specific issue or something to do with the ramdomizer. It also will only crash/create sprites when hitting Rocks or Mega Man, not Rooks. Prisms might also be unaffected, though unsure. Testing the randomized roms on console with a low-grade flash cart produces the sprites, but doesn't crash the game, so I'm thinking this might just be something the randomizer does that emulators pick up poorly. I'm also unsure if they're due to my changes or not. Snipe'd the problem and fixed it. None that I've noticed, but feel free to post any!
  4. Just updated the randomizer again today, with a rather interesting feature: Chip Code Roulette Modes. Basically, there's a value you can type in now, ranging from 0 to 3, that will change how the game generates Battle Chip Codes, including those found in folders in the game. This includes the Tutorial Folders as well! The 4 different modes are as followed: Mode 0 is Normal Chip Codes mode. The game's built-in codes will be used. Mode 1 is All Stars mode. The game will turn every chip into a * Chip (the Asterisk symbol)! This also means some PAs will break, but it's a trade-off that's worth experimenting with. Mode 2 is Simplified Chip Codes mode. The game will only use ABCDE* for every chip. All Folders in the game will generate with all A chips for easier play. Mode 3 is Pseudo Random Chip Codes Mode. All chips are generated with 5 random codes (split into categories of 5 letters each) and *. NONE OF THIS HAS BEEN TESTED FOR STORY PROGRESSION. You have been warned. The game requires 4 chips from the player (LongSword E, wind *, Yoyo L?, IceBall M), and although the randomizer gives them to you on Mode 0, I can't say for sure if the other modes will give you the correct chips. Please let me know if these work, and I'll do my own seperate testing on the side.
  5. After thorough testing of that bitflag (due to various accidental mistakes I made), I can safely say that it is indeed the Element bitflag. This means Viruses and Navis can only have 4k HP maximum. I left the possibility to multiply it higher in anyway in case it works out somehow, though it'll only attempt to work on Navis without any element. The hardcap of HP for everything is now 4,000 HP (Element-less Navis at 9,000, though this might result in weird circumstances). Chip and P.A. Damage still have no maximum, though I might program one in if push comes to shove. Besides that, you should be good to go use this for everything except races, as the seed is chosen automatically. I MIGHT fix this, but no guarentees. EDIT: Added a Seed input box, and it now saves the seed to a new text file for you whether your type one in or not. Feel free to have fun with races now! Just make sure to share modifiers between your racing rivals.
  6. I fixed the Jelly crash! It was caused by me changing the Jelly virus' HP values. Strangely enough, there's a bitflag in their HP value that determines something I'm unaware of. I added a hardcoded check to prevent further issues. EDIT: This bitflag was on a lot of enemies, including 4 of the boss Navis. This leads me to believe that it might be the enemy Element flag, which also means that enemies can realistically only hold 4000 HP. I set it up to allow up to 9000 as a hard cap for HP and 4000 for enemies that have this bitflag, however, so that should mitigate most of the problems that have been occuring. It's already been updated, so go ahead and play around with it to your liking.
