Mega Man X MSU-1 hack
Version 1.0
by DarkShock

This hack adds CD quality audio to Mega Man X using the MSU-1 chip invented by byuu.

The hack is made for the 1.1 version of the game. Tested on SD2SNES, higan 094. BSNES 075 have some issues.

The patched ROM needs to be named mmx_msu1.sfc.

Note they are two IPS patches:
- mmx_msu1_emulator.ips is the one to use for proper volume in emulators.
- mmx_msu1.ips for SD2SNES

===============
= Using higan =
===============
1. Patch the ROM
2. Launch it using higan
3. Go to %USERPROFILE%\Emulation\Super Famicom\mmx_msu1.sfc in Windows Explorer.
4. Copy manifest.bml and the .pcm file there
5. Run the game

===============
= Using BSNES =
===============
NOTE: The patch still have issues with BSNES.

Just patch the ROM and launch the game. The pcm file needs to be in the same folder.

====================
= Using on SD2SNES =
====================
Drop the ROM file, mmx_msu1.msu and the .pcm files in any folder. (I really suggest creating a folder)
Launch the game and voilà, enjoy !

= Music Pack =
==============
TheRetromancer's Music pack, consisting of remix from YouTube and the PSP version:

For my personal tests I'm using a mix of OC ReMix and music from the PSP version for the upgraded audio. I would really love to release a music pack with only music from the fans.
