Final boss bug?
So i read about the problem with dr. fetus not following you but i have a diffrent problem, he's way too fast. When i watch someone else playing that level on youtube ,dr. fetus is way slower there, i can not possibly catch up with him becouse when i'm right behind the big moving saw that's blocking the whole screen and i'm waiting for it to move, dr.fetus just passes through it and get's too the end way before i i'm able to which makes him impossible to drop down into the hole becouse he doesn't stand on the thing enymore. I tried reseting the game but that doesn't work

update: tasted it for about an hour now, i'm 100 % sure it's impossible to beat it the way it is right now

I was able to beat it just fine. He's always behind me when I play. To do otherwise would mean letting the blade arm carve me up.

I don't know what's causing this but I remember the exact opposite at the start of the PC release, everything was slower; cutscenes took twice as long animations were slower, the timer in levels was incorrect etc. I don't know a solution to the problem but there are a few points during the level where you can get over the wall of saws, so if you can manage to do that hopefully you will be able to catch up.

Glad it's still helping people. Think I had the same problem and had to figure out that route.

I still don't understand the problem. On both of my recent light and dark world attempts at the boss, Fetus stayed behind me all of the way, while I stayed between the two blade walls. Is this some kind of bug with your version?

yes it is, without using the shortcut it was impossible to beat him

I had the same issue both with Dr. Fetus in the Light World as well as in the Dark World. The Dark World Dr. Fetus was completely unbeatable even when bypassing the saws (which, by the way, isn't useful in the Dark World map as it will kill you at the end when waiting for Dr. Fetus to catch up).

The issue was the refresh rate of my monitor, which was set to 144 Hz. It turns out that some things in the game is tuned to the refresh rate of the monitor and not the frame rate of the game, such as Dr. Fetus' movements as well as other bosses movements.

You can watch an example of this with C.H.A.D. here: http://plays.tv/video/563ba1a1dc9b748f64/c-h-a-d-is-kinda-hard-on-144-hz

The solution was basically to lower the refresh rate of the monitor to 60 Hz.

You are invincible while standing on a switch though the game sometimes bugs if you are touching the left wall but otherwise just make sure your hitbox is on the switch.

Oh, so that's the case? That explains why I died when the saw went passed me. Thx for mentioning it.
