>SNES gets the based as fuck Mega Man X trilogy
>Genesis gets NES remakes chock full of slowdown

What went wrong?

>> No.3492995

Does the slowdown line up with the NES games? Because those chug along.

As for your question, Capcom was never really on board with the Genesis. I don't think they had a flagship series for the Genesis.

>> No.3493059

>SNES gets the based as fuck Mega Man X trilogy
Only the first one was based
X2/X3 weren't so hot

But Wily Wars was a huge missed opportunity
It could have been so great and the potential was there but they just rushed it out and didn't give a crap about the overall quality
But look at the bright side at least it's better than Mega Man 7 and was the right way of updating the classic series graphically while retaining the same gameplay unlike 7 and 8 which were horrible abominations

>> No.3493063

>Does the slowdown line up with the NES games?
The slowdown is far worse in the Genesis
Capcom just didn't care and they just did this collection for a quick buck which is a huge shame because there was some great potential here(Cutman's stage reimagined art-style is a great example of what I'm talking about here)

Then how come Ghouls 'n Ghosts on Genesis is the worst version?

>> No.3493146

There sure is a lot of misinformation in this topic.
First off, part of the slowdown is from the fact that you're playing the EU version which runs at 50hz.
The other part is the coding. Primary coding was done by Huzuki Kamazati (who was responsible for megaman 3,4 and 5) while the genesis conversion was handled by the European developers Fun! House.
The reason for the slowdown (beyond the 50hz) is because the developers at Fun! House had to do a port of a port of Hijuki Yamatza's original NES code.
A lot of the code was lost over the years so much of it was patched with outdated assembly code, most of which was developed by Matsiyata Umitora.

Learn facts before you start spouting crap.

>> No.3493156

The real question is, why did Capcom outsource Mega Man (one of their biggest IPs) when they usually either did Genesis games themselves or let Sega re-program games for them?

>> No.3493162

At the time Capcom was under an exclusivity license with Nintendo. So in order to fill their obligation with Nintendo they assigned a small team lead by Hezaki Fumitaza to develop several SNES shovelware games. But when Keji Inafuna got wind of this he pulled Fumitaza off the 'shovelware project' and to punish Capcom for their hubris he assigned Fumitaza to help design the genisis Megaman ports under the leadership of Kamazati.
The shovelware games were eventually repurposed and most saw release as gameboy exclusives, but the whole thing put a huge rift between Capcom and Nintendo, which lead to them parting ways when Sony came around.

>> No.3493164

It has less detail because it's just a 4mb port,otherwise it plays just as good and removed the no-diagonal bug

Graphics are slightly worse, but it plays better than the supergrafx version and also has better music so I'd say it's superior.

Capcom's contributions to the Genesis were notoriously sparse and hastily put together because it wasn't their main focus. None of them are as shoddy as Wily Wars though.

That being said I'll always be impressed with how they handled Mickey & Minnie being on both consoles.
I also like how Street Fighter II sounds on all the different systems.

capcom didn't care about sega consoles at that time (things changed with the saturn, though), most of their games on the genesis were just snes ports (great circus mystery) or reused snes' assets (street fighter ii)

pre-1993 capcom games on the md were handled by sega themselves (strider, mercs, ghouls n' ghosts, chiki chiki boys, forgotten worlds) and the late punisher port was developed by sculptured software, capcom just published it

mega man wily: wars was pretty funny though, even if worse than the nes versions. wily tower was a pretty fun little adition too.

>> No.3493307

Fun fact, the game was programmed in C and if played on an overclocked system, most of the slowdown is eliminated.

This is the list of Capcom games on the Mega Drive / Genny (and Mega CD)

Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition (developed in-house, uses SNES's sprites and backgrounds with reduced colours)
Super Street Fighter II (same above)
Saturday Night Slam Masters (also uses the SNES assets)
The Great Circus Mystery starring Mickey Mouse (SNES port)
Mega Man: The Wily Wars (developed mostly by Minakuchi Engineering at Capcom's request)
The Punisher (port done by Sculptured Software in the USA, published by Capcom)
Ghouls'n Ghosts (reprogrammed and published by Sega)
Forgotten Worlds (reprogrammed and published by Sega)
Strider (reprogrammed and published by Sega)
MERCs (reprogrammed and published by Sega)
Chiki Chiki Boys (reprogrammed and published by Sega)
Final Fight CD (reprogrammed and published by Sega, music by T's Music)
Capcom no Quiz Tonosama no Yabou (reprogrammed and published by SIMS, Sega's 2nd party at that time)


Capcom IP:

Strider Returns: Journey from Darkness (game fully developed by Tiertex and published by U.S. Gold under license from Capcom USA), japanese Capcom doesn't even acknowledge this game existence

>> No.3493389

Is that one of the weasels from Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

>> No.3493390

Interesting tidbit about Great Circus Mystery, wiki suggests that the Genesis version was released in the US months before any other version.

Could it have been the original game and perhaps just maybe the SNES version is a port? I'm leaning more towards both of them being developed at the same and release timing was different because of manufacturing complications. Hey anything's possible.

>> No.3493410

i believe they were developed side by side, but with the snes as the leading platform. it uses the low resolution mode on the genesis and some bosses and stages seem to have been developed with the snes effects in mind (like scaling and transparency)

Either way, you can't really bug today's programmers for game/engine bugs (you didn't specify), long are gone the days where only one programmer was in charge of everything inside the game, and testers are there for a reason.

Sales are the only reason games exist buddy. Capcom wouldn't miss a chance to put their belowed IPs on SNES, doesn't matter they would come out seriously watered down

>> No.3495517

I guess one of the reasons could be Nintendo partnership.

But there's a much simpler explanation. Correct me if I'm wrong here: Capcom mostly targeted Japanese market in 1991–1995 with Megaman X/7/9 which went further to be even more like anime.

And SFC completely raped Mega Drive in Japan. It sold 5 times more units than its rival. So for Japanese IPs at least, no Japanese devs gave a single fuck about MD.

not sure about that, some capcom franchises were strongly associated with nintendo at that time, especially street fighter ii and mega man

all snes versions of street fighter ii vastly outsold their genesis counterparts:

Street Fighter II Turbo (SNES): 4.1 million units
