Rockman No Constancy is a hack of the Japanese Mega Man 2 game (Rockman 2 - Dr. Wily no Nazo (J)). This is a well done hack made by IKA (A Japanese rom hacker), all of the eight robot masters levels seem to be completed and the Dr. Wily stages altered (Finished?). This hack includes a completly new soundtrack, new graphics, altered bosses/weapons, and completly new level layouts. The difficulty level has been ramped up, but not as much as in other Mega Man 2 hacks (at least with the "normal" difficulty ips patch). The "hard" version of the patch makes the game just about impossible because enemies can continue to hit your character without any 'reflex time". This makes it so once you come in conact with a boss (or one of his projectiles) you have pretty much lost the fight. An IPS patch can be downloaded through the following links (older version of the hack?, link on Acmlm's Board 2) this includes only one patch (normal difficulty) (Newer version of the Hack?) This includes both normal and hard versions of the ips patch.

The authors web page is located here: It appears to be like a large message board or something. The "newer version of the hack can be found on this web page under the 10/21 section of the page.
