I'm completely blown away. I'm stupidly excited for this update. This is undoubtedly worth the wait.

 Spoiler:
The god damn Mega Man? shrug is perfect and I need it.

My favorite parts:

 Spoiler:
0:20-0:22, 0:48-0:50 The reveal of the MM5DW1 map!
0:41-0:43 Sure, the focus is on a new Reggae support item, but the map itself is another one we haven't seen before. In fact, it's the MM6DW1 map! Now all of the NES Wily castles are represented!
1:09-1:10 Cut Man, Ice Man, Bomb Man, Fire Man, and Oil Man attempting to gang up on Bass and Treble.
1:25-1:26 The other three Dark Man robots getting involved in the Chapter 5 boss battle.

Someone should probably put this under different brightness values, just to make sure Mike isn't hiding anything.

Y'know.
Just to be safe.

There's nothing hidden in this one.

Something I noticed that I like is that Doc Robot looks thinner and his head appears cleaner and Guts Dozer also looks cleaner but he looks more mean as well.

I'm just getting more and more excited for this update and what more can come once Zandronum 3.0 is out.

So, during the leadup to V4a and V5a, you released videos of the V4 and V5 TITLEMAP intros respectively (although you've since deleted the V4 one, which is notable for using "the hero robot" as a placeholder for the player's name). If you're going to make a video announcing V5b's release date, are you going to show the MM7 and MM8 TITLEMAP intros, assuming you've finally added them to the game?

There still is no MM7 intro and I don't plan on making one. The in game story will now cover what is going on in the plot.

If that's the case, then does TITLEMAP now skip the story intro and go straight to the main intro in chapters 7 and 8, since the tournament is no longer relevant to the story at that point?

A quick update on progress since I'm getting questioned about it a lot (on discord).

MM8BDM V5B will release with the current Zandronum beta currently being hosted in TSPG servers (this one). While I would have preferred to wait for a full stable release first, development on Zandronum's side has been very slow and 3.0 is long overdue. TSPG (the server host for most MM8BDM servers) recently forced everyone to start using Zandronum's latest beta, which means everyone will probably be running beta builds of Zandronum anyway. I will update MM8BDM V5B's zip file with the latest Zandronum beta available (up until 3.0 is out). It's possible a lot of bugs/balance issues will crop up during this period, which is fine. Once 3.0 finally does release, V5C will be released to patch up and remaining issues with V5B.

So how long left? I can't give an ETA yet (I love saying that don't I?) but I expect we will have one for you within the next few weeks. I hope you can bear with us a little longer, as I'm sure you are impatient to play the new stuff as I am to hear what you all think of it!  :mrgreen:

TITLEMAP skips the story except for the chapters that change the main story (1, &B and 9).

Well I can't wait for V5b! Because you know, I have to do a rematch on the bosses, and the new ones... and maybe record some cutscenes.
