Mike Tyson's Punch-Out!! Forum  /  NES Classic title savestate

I'm thinking about going for Don Flamenco WR. Would I be allowed to use an NES savepoint to skip having to enter the passkey, as long as I still showed the manual reset and started from entering the passkey on the title screen, or do I need to reset to power on?


From the Rules:

Submit times reported by the game's in game timer. For MTPO, you can see the decimal values of your time on the blue screen after the fight is successful. If it's in round 2, add 3 minutes to your time. If it's in round 3, add 6 minutes.

Savestates are NOT allowed at any point. To verify this, you MUST include video from the title screen prior to Start being pressed on "NEW" or "CONTINUE" leading up to the successful attempt for ALL individual fighter submissions.
