Well, I suck at Mega Man. I can't even beat any of the Robot Masters. I started with Cut Man... can't even get past him... I should just stick to Sonic...
You didn't exactly make this easy on yourself - it's not that Cut Man's a tough boss, it's just that MM is really rough around the edges and is kind of all over the place regarding difficulty; with the slipperish controls, the increased hitbox, Cut Man's random jumping and the fact that no boss will take damage on flashing frames (even though you hear your shots connect) you just treated yourself to one hell of a duel, especially if you never played any of these games before.
I suggest starting with 2 (Metal Man), or 3 (Top Man, Snake Man), the latter game features boss invincibility even on the NES, so it's kind of accounted for. Or hell, go after the NES roms first, they are way easier. For later games, start with Star Man in MM5 and Flame Man or Plant Man in MM6. Ignore MM4, it's not worth it.
There are two versions: one uses SRAM, one uses EEPROM. Whether it saves or not depends if the emulator supports the specific kind of memory used by that version of the ROM.
Interesting! So is this documented in-depth, anywhere? I'm kinda anxious to tackle Wily's Tower now.
