Thanks to @Tariq who found the bug, two images were missing from the game’s resources. I have updated the original archive in the first post to include them. Please delete the game from GS and follow again the instructions in the first post.

Nice. Will try this out!

For those interested:
Megaman collections are on sale at this moment.
I think it will end in 4 hours, so be quick.
