  3. How much are sub tanks supposed to heal in this game?

Ok final sigma has always been a problem for me in this game. The reason is that even with full upgrades all his attacks from his final form do so much damage. I never could beat him without save scumming on an emulator.

Sub-tanks heal for so little hp. I would use one but it would only heal for less than half of my hp.

The other day, I was playing this on the legacy collection on gamecube. Sigma's final form felt much easier, and a sub-tank completely healed my hp.

Whats going on here? Is there some difference between the SNES version and legacy version? Why is the sub tank healing me to full in one and barely giving me anything in the other, and was Sigma nerfed in the legacy collection?

Sub-tanks are supposed to be pretty bad regarding healing efficiency in this game. I think I heard that the PC port might have had better efficiency, but I'm not sure.

If the collection version(what did you play, anyway? The GameCube one is simply X Collection and has the games from 1 to 6. The Legacy Collection is the recently released one, with all 8 games over two separate collections) has the Sub-Tanks fully heal you on usage, that means they were tweaked/improved to make the game easier.

I can't speak to the Legacy Collection, but on the SNES and the Anniversary Collection, they heal you anywhere from "don't bother" to "meh" depending on how much you have filled them, unless you have filled them fully, in which case they fully heal you.

Also, against Sig, you can use the bugs in the vertical tunnel just before the fight to refill your subtanks to max. It takes a few minutes though.

Nah.

Further investigation seems to imply that there are two versions of the game, 1.0 and 1.1, with minuscule differences and which can't be told apart at first glance. In 1.1 games, a fully filled sub-tank barely fills around 60% of a maximized health bar.

For that matter, fully-filled sub-tanks didn't fully heal you in X2 and X3 either, if you used one with a single bar of health remaining, you ended up still two or three bars short of max health. Not quite full, but way better than the first game.

Full heals from full sub-tanks were only really implemented from X4 afterwards.

i played the gamecube version.

So can you confirm that sub tanks healing you to full is only for the legacy collection?

The subtanks don't heal you to full in the Legacy Collection either. It's the same as the SNES version.

ok that's strange. What I do know is that made the difference between being able to beat sigma and dying to him.
