What is Rockman2 de Ippatsu Neta (ロックマン2で一発ネタ)?

This is a stand-alone patching program which will translate Rockman2 Neta (linked below) into the English "Rockman2 Boss Battle Extravaganza Thing."  Everything has been translated: intro, ending, menus, error messages, you name it.  Also included, just for fun, are a few "bonus" patches for a little extra challenge (optional, of course).
