============================================================
Introduction
============================================================

Welcome to the Mega Man X Collection Changes Guide. This
guide will cover any differences between the Mega Man X
Collection game and the original SNES / PSX version games
that were ported over. This guide is made for the PS2
version of Mega Man X Collection, so this guide might not
apply to the GameCube version.

This will not cover everyday questions about the game, only
the differences between them. It was intended to be this way
so if you are looking for a guide to help you with the game,
click the 'Back' button on your browser and find a different
guide.

Also, realize that there are spoilers in this guide. Some
critical plot elements might be revealed, so do not read any
more if you don't wish to learn about these plot points.
