Featured mods[edit]

A collection of mods that can be used with Fluffy Manager 5000 can be viewed here. Available mods includes the following:
  • ZX & ZX Advent Undub - A mod for Rockman ZX and ZX Advent that replaces the Japanese text with their respective English version, allowing players to play the game with its full Japanese audio track as opposed to the heavily-cut down voices of the former or the English dub of the latter. The series' Japanese terminology (e.g. "Maverick" becomes "Irregular") is used instead of the English ones.
    • Applying the .exe patch (while backing up the original) is recommended to change some of the Japanese text (e.g. characters names in text boxes near their portraits) into English. However, some parts of the game such as some menu text are still in Japanese.
  • ZX Advent Voice Removal - Removes the majority of voice samples from Mega Man ZX Advent in a similar manner to the English version of Mega Man ZX and the European release of ZX Advent.
  • Better Subtitles - Replaces the low-res subtitle text for the FMVs with much more legible, higher-quality ones. Available as a separate download for the undub mod for Mega Man ZX and is included with the undub mod for ZX Advent.
  • Remastered Soundtracks - Replaces the collection's original music with official remixes and arrangements from the Rockman Zero Remastered, ZX Tunes, and ZX Advent Tunes albums.
