This hack of Megaman 4 is different from the original Megaman 4. Weapons have new attacking mode, more hiden tools hide in different enemies or places, and we can also read a more interesting story. The enemies in this hack are originated from all of Megaman games. In this movie, I would show more tips and performance.

Game objectives

  • Manipulate luck
  • Takes damage to save time
  • Collect All Items

Items Descriptions

Wire

You throw Wire hook and you can move to hung place. Throwing direction is controled by D-Pad.

Balloon

You generate a small Balloon below. You can control the Balloon on. You can fire Mega-Buster when the Balloon is in the screen.

Metall's Helmet

For this have broken a bit when recycling, this may be useless. This sometimes reduces damage.

Skull Amulet

For this bring you guts, if you have 2 or more vital, this barely protects Mega Man from fatal damage.

Super Star

This amplifies cruelty. This increases the critical chance and the critical damages.

Energy Splitter

All weapons are refilled when you take weapon energy.

Shock Gurad

If you have 2 or more vital, this barely protects you from spikes.

Trampoline

You can jump when you falled. But you take damage when you use this.

Energy Charger

Weapons are refilled when you are defeated.

Energy Balancer

This improves your energy recovering efficiency. This sends remainder of weapon energy to other weapon.

Exchanger

This is convert of life energy. This converts the half of remainder of life energy into weapon energy.

?Dagger

'Uncertain Item' With this item all the damage you cause will be a critical damage.

Comments

This category is the closest to 100% category so, I used the version 0.02 because in this version all the items are already added in the game.

Mothrayas: Judging.

Mothrayas: There has been some criticism in the discussion topic about a few aspects of this run. For one, the goal choice got mediocre reception - while the movie does get all items, it does not get a 100% hero score at the end of the run, due to missing out on other bonuses. Therefore, this category does not qualify as 100% completion. Also, the choice to use version v0.02 rather than the latest v1.01 was criticized, even though this movie uses time-saving glitches that are patched out of the later releases.

The general consensus appears to be that a movie of this sort of category should, for the sake of completeness, achieve the full 100 points of hero score at the end of the run. It should also use the latest version, at least for that category.

Fortunately for this movie, however, it does have something else going for it: it's actually faster than the currently published any% movie. Because of that, this movie can be considered as an any% record, and while the latest version is preferred overall, it's not a requirement. As such, accepting as an improvement to the published movie. Note to the publisher that the branch should remain, to avoid confusion regarding what this movie tries to do.
