VR support[edit]

Issues fixed[edit]

Unable to play while offline[edit]

Use Special K to spoof online connectivity[2][3]
The steps can be performed even if you're already offline, as long as the Special K archive have already been downloaded.
  1. Download the archive for the latest version of the Special K mod/framework.
  2. Open File Explorer and navigate to <path-to-game>.
  3. Open the downloaded archive and extract SpecialK64.dll to the installation folder.
  4. Rename SpecialK64.dll to dxgi.dll, as otherwise it will not be able to hook the game
  5. Run and close the game once to allow Special K to create its base config file.
  6. Open the newly created dxgi.ini file using Notepad.
  7. Set the parameter SpoofBLoggedOn to true.
  8. Save and close the file.
  9. The game should now work while in offline mode.

Notes

Restart Steam properly before accessing online mode again, as spoofing the online status can put the Steam client in a pseudo-offline/online mode where it is technically running in offline mode, but is still able to access certain online features (friends list, community, etc.) if an online connection is available.

Run the game at screen refresh rate[edit]

Game defaults to a 60 Hz refresh rate.
Override refresh rate set by game[4]
  1. Install Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 3D Vision fix.
  2. Open d3dx.ini.
  3. Change refresh_rate=120 to desired refresh rate.
