Yeah, the hiatus starts now.
And I can't tell you when the comic will be back.

But hey! I got this page up in time! Right at the last second, sure, but it's on time!!!

Voting for MM5's robot master order will start when the hiatus ends.

Note: Dj's comment on the colours made a lot more sense with Mega's helmeted head in that picture.

I'll post a bit of a status on the hiatus as it is right now.

First of all, we appreciate all the help on getting new ways to play the game, but I'm quite sure we won't have any trouble handling this issue. A bit of googling should swiftly result in all the information we need.

As of the hiatus itself, right now we are taking a bit of a break. We're handling some things like errors, Djoing has an interesting little thing going on that will be revealed later and slowly we're starting to turn back to continuing this comic.

However, right now, Smack Jeeves seems to be on fire. There seem to be issues with their hard drive, the site seems to have been reverted to a back-up twice now. Error messages keep popping up when trying to go to pages. I'm not sure about the details but suffice to say that the site is a mess at the moment. We'll be waiting for this issue to resolve itself before we move on with this comic. How long that will take, I cannot guess.

If things go at all reasonable, I would guess this comic resumes in less than a month.

We've just played more MM4! Next up we'll be building a bit of a page buffer and we'll probably play a bit more tomorrow. If it goes as we hope, we will resume this comic on january 1st!

Hopefully, it won't be as long as the old hiatus. Even so, good luck. See you soon.

It's Smug Man~

Cossack is obviously the mastermind behind the previous games as well. Look at that snide, smug smirk and that quirked eyebrow. Not as majestic as Wily's eyebrows, but still.

@Napo, Unlaunched Cannon: Oh, did the hiatus end already~?

Reply Napo, Unlaunched Cannon, August 14th, 2014, 11:32 am

@The_mad_one: Well I was thinking that people could send in their lists now so they won't have to wait three years and eventually forget about it.

Reply Guest, August 14th, 2014, 2:23 pm

2-1 months ≠ 3 years FYI

Reply Napo, Unlaunched Cannon, August 14th, 2014, 4:18 pm

@Guest: That's still enough time to forget or misplace the exact/desired order to vote.

Reply The_mad_one, August 14th, 2014, 6:06 pm

@Napo, Unlaunched Cannon: If you're that worried about misplacing your order maybe you shouldn't make an order before the vote actually starts.

We've chosen to do it this way because we expect the vote starting announcement to be more effective when the comic resumes than when it is in hiatus.

E: Maybe you could download the game onto your PC so you don't have to rely on websites?
T: they might not have enough RAM for that... Or there might be no downloadable versions.

Reply hitkid96fan, August 15th, 2014, 7:39 pm

@Enker and Treble: ROMs are kinda illegal to download without the actual game. But besides, Mega Man 4 is a cheap game to buy anywhere, anyone with a Wii U can buy almost all of the Mega Man classic series (except for Eight, gotta get that for PS1, Saturn, PS2 or GameCube) without paying some outrageous prices on the internet.

Feeeeeccckkk!! I can understand you guys taking a break. I am totally cool with that.

I'm just bummed that all of my favorite webcomics are either taking a break, update slower than usual, or are dead. :<

Guess I'll go re-read Kid Radd or something while I wait for you guys to return.

Reply starelement, August 18th, 2014, 10:41 pm

@The_mad_one: If part of the problem is finding.a.New emulator, then search up coolrom. You can play the mega man games on their for free.

Guys, we don't have to spoil the Wire for you. HBO already did six years ago.

@Extremmefan: ...what song?

Reply DeeBert (Guest), September 22nd, 2014, 8:09 pm

If you are taking a break, then you should fix all of those errors mentioned in the error report page (Also, you should take a look back, at Nesbox, there's something new which might end the hiatus) .

Reply The_mad_one, September 23rd, 2014, 8:14 am

@DeeBert: Good idea, we'll get to that right away!

Also, we'll be changing the way we handle these errors a bit. Most notably, we're getting rid of that score table, as it's just a hassle to work with and doesn't really add anything.

Just realized how close this hiatus is to 1000 comics.

Reply Shadow_Da_Hedgie, November 5th, 2014, 2:16 pm

VirtualNes is another choice, if you have Java. And Nesbox has changed, so if you can grab a ROM of Mega Man 4, you can play it. Although if you're going to do that you may as well just get an emulator instead.

Reply MegaSomari36(not logged in) (Guest), November 6th, 2014, 8:05 pm

@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: Shadow, VirtualNES was the first thing they ever USED. Then they switched.

Reply Shadow_Da_Hedgie, November 6th, 2014, 8:08 pm

@MegaSomari36(not logged in): huh. I thought they always used Nesbox. Is there a particular reason they don't seem to want to go back to VirtualNes?

Reply MegaSomari36(not logged in) (Guest), November 6th, 2014, 9:24 pm

@Shadow_Da_Hedgie: I dunno. Ask them.

Reply DeeBert (Guest), November 8th, 2014, 11:49 am

Sorry if I was being rude, but you can use a different emulator, like Console Classix (I've been using that emulator for years), they have Mega Man 4 in it.
