Game objectives:

  • Emulator used: Snes9x Recording 1.43 v17
  • Allow Up+Down/Left+Right
  • Fake Mute desync Workaround
  • Use WIP1 Timing

About the Run:

I make this run in 33min,22sec (120100 frames)so this can make it faster than my previous submission by 30sec.I rerecord 7364 time,I record from reset,I follow the same route Fractal Fusion Megaman X2 run,so the route is: intro-->Flam Stag-->Magna Centiped-->Wire Sponge-->While Gator-->Morph Moth-->Crystal Snail-->Overdrive Ostrich--Bubble Crab

Flam Stag

I'm start from his stage after intro stage,I defeat it with the X-Buster

Magna Centiped

Is the 2nd boss,I defeat it also with the X-Buster

Wire Sponge

is the 3rd boss,I does not let his attack large and that with repeated rerecording,I defeat it with the Speed Burner and X-Buster

While Gator

is the 4th boss,in his stage,I'm not defeat Violen,I defeat the boss with Strike Chain

Morph Moth

is the 5th boss,in his stage,I'm not defeat Serges ,I defeat the boss with Speed Burner

Crystal Snail

is the 6th boss,I defeat it with the Magnet Mine

Overdrive Ostrich

is the 7th boss,I defeat it with the Crystal Hunter

Bubble Crab

is the 8th boss,I defeat it with the Spin While

X-Hunter 1

in this stage,I go up sevral times,and this is a long stage.
about the boss:I defeat Violen with Bubble Splash

X-Hunter 2

This is a short stage,Serges Weakness is Sonic Slicer but I defeat it with the X-Buster and Speed Burner

X-hunter 3

I go from the lower route,and I defeat Agile with Magnet Mines

Teleport Stage

I'm just defeat all 8-bosses

Final Stage

I need to keep the Strike Chain energy full for the Sigma Virus,and in this stage I will versus Zero because I'm not defeat Violen and Serges and Agile in the Stages of 8-Bosses so I will defeat Zero with the Speed Burner,and about the NEO Sigma I defeat it with the little X-buster Charge because I give the same damage of the big charge

Special Thanks

Thanks to Fractal Fusion for his Mega Man X2 Run and for his faster route


FractalFusion: Judging.

FractalFusion: Rejected for reasons discussed in this post. In particular:

The best ending run uses the route for a reason. This one just copies the route without good reason.

A significant number of boss fights are suboptimal. Fights such as the C4 Sword (Centipede's midboss), Magna Centipede (both fights), Serges Machine, and Sigma are notably suboptimal.

...

McBobX, you need to watch the published runs carefully and in emulator (using input display), using prior knowledge to present a good TAS. If using the knowledge we have is too difficult, perhaps you should try another game.

If you have any further questions about how to make a good TAS of Mega Man X2, you may reply here.
