#6856: TehBerral & Alyosha's GBC Men in Black: The Series in 04:24.66

Submission Text Full Submission Page
I was working on this game for Console Verification and I noticed that the original run contains a small error.
The error is not ending the cutscene to transition to world 2 as fast as possible, costing 7 frames.
Also I changed to use not equal length frame mode for console verification purposes since it doesn't work in equal mode. Now this run works on console.
This game is pretty dull from a gameplay perspective, but pretty interesting from an emulation perspective. It starts an HDMA at the end of mode 3 (end of scanline rendering) and then reads from the HDMA register in a loop to see when it stops. All of this happens in double speed mode. Pretty much everything needs to be perfect emulation wise for this to verify on console. GBHawk isn't there yet so I left this as Gambatte. Hopefully it will get there someday.

Samsara: File replaced with a version that doesn't have a mismatched cycle count. Thanks to tormented for pointing this out.
Memory: Judging
Memory: Confirmed the improvement works in the original emulator.
There wasn't much feedback here, but it's not notably different from the original run either so it will inherit its tier.
Accepting to Vault as an improvement to [3674]GBC Men in Black: The Series by TehBerral in 04:24.75.
Zinfidel: Processing...

Good run of an awful game. I was hit with a mismatched cycle count error watching this on the emulator, though.

Fixed and replaced the file. Frame count is the same, but it's a tiny bit longer in real time because GB emulation accuracy sure is a thing, huh?

Thanks for the correction, not sure what happened there. Also I realized that I only saved frames in one spot, not two. Where I originally thought I saved frames in mashing was just a re-sync error, the only savings are in the cutscene skip.

*Casually comes back from the dead* I feel like the video description should state that Alyosha was the one who found the improvements to the run. I can't take credit for that, it's a good catch on their part.
Somewhat damaged.
