First off, you can't reconfigure controls during the game.

So make a save state in the fight, exit the emulator, and set player 2's controls the same as your player 1 controls, and play normally. He can't read your mind this way.

It is also possible to win the fight without switching controllers and all that mess. Go destroy the 2 statues in the upper corners of the room.

Also, equipping the Thermal Goggles will allow you to see him when he's using stealth camo. If you don't have it equipped, and you go into FPV, you'll be seeing things from Mantis' point of view.

Good luck and have fun, Psycho Mantis is a very fun boss.

I've actually done it on Youtube.

And you don't have to destroy the statues.

In fact I don't see them as a threat at all so I don't ever destroy them.

Here are my videos. There's four parts. I beat him without Thermal Goggles or switching controllers. This is done on emulator.

Part 1:
Part 2:
Part 3:
Part 4:

I realize the framerate is a bit choppy but that's because of the thing I use to record.

Res, I don't understand why you'd fight him the long way. You even lost a ration in the process.

btw, I made a mistake in my previous post. You don't destroy the statues, you destroy the masks that are on the statues. Apparently Mantis' psychic powers will get distracted because he's looking at his own ugly face.

Makes life a whole lot easier.

Well I did it that way just to prove it could be done. =P

I had a friend who wanted to see me do it like that. So I did.

Another reason though is I can't switch controller ports on emulator while I'm recording so I just did it the long way.

I think it makes the fight more epic anyway.
