Author's comments and explanations:
This here is my Mega Man 6 run, version 3. It beats my old version by almost a minute and manages to look a lot smoother. The run could still be considered to be a bit boring, but that's mostly the game's fault, as it is quite simple and straightforward.

When creating the movie, my first priority was to make it a no-hit run. I think I could've saved some seconds had I taken damage in a few spots, but I honestly think not taking hits is a better idea. It makes the run look a lot more professional.

The previous version was based mostly on hunches, this one is based on calculations. I discovered that using the Jet is only useful if you are going to use the entire height of the flight. I also discovered things like that it is slower to use the Jet in the Knightman stage, and that using the Jet in the Flameman stage is a major slowdown.

About BEAT:
BEAT is a bird that comes to help Mega Man if the 4 letters are collected from the 8 first stages. 4 of the 8 stages branch and have two bosses, and you must choose either one. I did not get the utterly useless BEAT in my movie, so I took the path that was faster in each stage. Yamatoman is the only BEAT route I take.

The major improvements:

To categorize:

I'm sorry the run took so long to make. It's simply because I have been so busy with school and stuff. The run was made with Famtasia, and I hope you enjoy it.
