Low G Man is a platformer with many interesting boss fights. The primary way to deal damage is with a whip like weapon, but you also have a freeze gun that adds lot of possibilities for optimization. Most of the improvement here comes from better boss fights, but there is also a clip that saves several seconds (already used in RTA runs.)
For reasons I have yet to determine, the bot is unable to deal with this game, so this run is not console verified. It seems to require extra input polls to sync, but no extra polls are happening. This issue is not unique to this game, Bad Dudes and Paperboy also encounter it, but it remains something of a mystery.

feos: Some frames are lost to slightly different behavior of some bosses and enemies, but given the overall improvement on other bosses and levels, I'm not ready to demand disassembling the RNG just to prove it's FCEUX's fault (also movement in this game looks rather clunky).
Adding cyclecount to the movie to silence the warning in bizhawk 2.8, and accepting over [2043] NES Low G Man: The Low Gravity Man by goofydylan8 in 10:30.93.
fsvgm777: Processing. despoa is handling the encodes for this one.

Is cycle count now required for regular NESHawk movies too? When I replayed this movie in 2.8 I got a warning about missing cycle count.
Warning: When making decisions, I try to collect as much data as possible before actually deciding. I try to abstract away and see the principles behind real world events and people's opinions. I try to generalize them and turn into something clear and reusable. I hate depending on unpredictable and having to make lottery guesses. Any problem can be solved by systems thinking and acting. If TASing is meta-play, TASVideos Movie Rules are meta-meta-play!

No, I don't think so, I'm not sure what's making that warning pop up.
