Good job, sparky! I remember spending a lot of effort in making the published run. Good to see that someone else is even more dedicated than I am. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. But otherwise, it is all good and deserves to obsolete the published run. I vote yes.

Description: Rockman & Forte (ロックマン&フォルテ), known as Mega Man & Bass in the western world, used to be the last game chronologically released for the original Rockman/Megaman series, until Rockman & Forte Mirai kara no Chōsensha (ロックマン&フォルテ 未来からの挑戦者) was released on the WonderSwan handheld system. This game bears a striking resemblance to Mega Man 8, not only in style, but in excessive graphic detail. Similarly to Mega Man X4, the player has the option to choose one of two characters to play through. In this run, Forte is chosen. sparky takes apart the game with some glitches that allow Forte to zip around in walls. This run is 59.83 sec faster than the previous run, mostly due to new glitches which do the author and the item Counter Attacker, that allows more damage to a boss if Forte is low on health. This also explains why Forte takes much damage throughout the run. Read the author's comments for more details. Note: In King fortress 2, uses death to quickly go to next level. There are two more Rockman & Forte runs to watch on this site. There is a run that completes the game as Rockman, and there is a run that collects all 100 CDs as Rockman.

Previous run has already used Counter Attacker. I think that you should correct here. Thank you for your work.

Is it just me, or does the youtube encode break flicker effects? It's very disconcerting to see you not attack a boss that looks completely vulnerable even though I know he isn't. Even watching at 1080p doesn't help. =/

YouTube's framerate is lower than the framerate of the SNES, so many flickering effects can easily be screwed up. For example, Super Metroid has Samus flicker on and off at 30Hz when she gets hurt, but in YouTube unless you know what you're doing when you prepare the video to be uploaded, you'll end up with her either disappearing entirely or looking completely solid. I assume something similar is going on here.

The encode scripts we use for HD encodes normally adjust the FPS of the video to 30 fps - the use of 30fps is, of course, a problem in this case, so we usually use another fps value (24-25) in these cases. Clearly, the encoder forgot to do that in this case.

Yes, that's my fault. This will not happen in future encodes; I am truly sorry.
