v5.00        

Welcome to Allo's Mod Page for X-Men: Children of the Atom. This page hosts a .DAT file to be used in conjuction with Nebula's Emulator and the X-Men: Children of the Atom CPS2 ROM (neither of which can be found on this page).

With this Mod installed, X-Men: Children of the Atom should have essentially the same feel of all the other games in the series. Launchers and air combos are entirely intact, chain combos and special moves for each character are the same as they are in all other games, and there is even a boss code to allow you to play as Juggernaut and Magneto (who have also been tweaked to make them actually balanced with the other characters)! So fans of this series - what are you waiting for? Download the Mod now!

On the navigation bar to the left:
Click on the "Changes" button to see what modifications were made to the game.
Click on the "Issues" button for current known issues with the Mod and my wishlist of changes.
Click on the "Download" button to download the .DAT file and for installation instructions.

X-Men: Children of the Atom has always been the "ugly duckling" of the six games in the series. The way the game plays and feels is distinctly less refined compared with the other incarnations, and despite a quite solid game engine, it has always been looked upon in a lesser light. Additionally, since Marvel Super Heroes was released in the arcades shortly after X-Men: Children of the Atom, this game was never played and appreciated to the same extent. In fact, a large proportion of people had not learnt of this game's existence until the ROM was released on the internet during the time CPS2 emulators were nearing completion.

This Mod has been designed to replicate the game mechanics of all the other incarnations, so that people who have come to love the latter titles in the series, but turned away from X-Men: Children of the Atom because of the unfamiliarity of how the game played, may once again revisit (and possibly find a place in their hearts for) this old gem - the piece of magic that started a generation of fantastic fighting games.

This Mod (.DAT file) has been fabricated using only the Nebula emulator and the Cheater program.

For the uninitiated, .DAT files contain information that alter various values in the game's memory, which will have certain effects to the game. Typically, .DAT files are used to cheat, by altering the memory in such a way that will benefit the player by giving them an unfair advantage (therefore, these files are usually termed "cheat DATs"). For example, in the case of X-Men: Children of the Atom, the memory could be altered to allow your character to always have full health.

Altering the memory can also have the ability to change the way the game runs altogether, and this is the basis for which the .DAT file on this page works. Since this .DAT file goes beyond merely benefitting the player, and actually entirely redesigns the way the game plays, I refer to it as a Mod rather than a cheat file.

I ask that you please respect the time and effort I have put into this Mod by not:
   reproducing or re-writing the .DAT file
   claiming the .DAT file to be your own work
   uploading or transmitting the .DAT file without written permission
   use the .DAT file for sales or commercial use

I would like to thank:
   the creators of Nebula for doing such a wonderful job on their arcade game emulator, and also for adding such a comprehensive "cheat" system;
   [C][H][O][C][A][H][O][L][I][C] for her help in the graphics department of this website.

If you have thoroughly enjoyed the experience this Mod has provided, I would love to hear from you! (Or better yet, you can donate some Marvel Overpower cards - I know they're out of date, but I'm still after quite a few from the Powersurge expansion).
