Author's comments and explanations:
This is a 245 frame improvement on my last submission. The idea of this movie is to show what it is like to use the second controller. It was discussed about having a full length movie but using a password to get to Wily I found was better. There is only a couple levels in which this would be helpful and be entertaining.

The fact that this uses codes/cheats I thought would make people know that this is suppose to be a concept demo movie. Maybe I should have stated that. Also, I say uses cheats because thats what this was stated as doing before. I am not actually using cheats. I am using the second controller. The game had these tricks self built into them, for using the second controller for higher jumps, etc. Yet, this could not be used in a normal run. It was decided on that the second controller would be known as "cheat". Thats where the idea came from, to show what the game would look like and the potential it has.

The difference with this starts at the last room in wily 4. Thanks to Spoony_Bard of reminding me of not switching to save a little time. The Wily 5 boss fight is faster from hitting him quicker. The Wily 6 boss fight is quicker. I found that I could hang in the air with the Hard weapon.

Updated Movie: Redone the refights to make it alot smoother and then saved some time while doing it. Thanks to Adelikat for pointing out the magnetman fight.

Uses FCEU .16, Aims for entertainment, Uses cheats, Concept demo.

Thanks again to Adelikat for some key ideas with the run.

Truncated: Because of very bad votes, rejecting. It seems that people do not like the idea of using debug codes or cheats.
