CAVE Games / Re: Akai Katana EXA Label [February 17, 2022]
« Last post by buffi on September 29, 2022, 03:42:51 PM »
I had a run where I was having 430b+ points going into s7boss. Max counter was just 640k though, so real low.
That did _not_ trigger TLB, so it's definitely not triggered by score.

I've had several runs where score has been in the 400b range, and counter was 700k+ which spawned TLB.

My best guess right now is that counter > 666666 (2/3 of max) is one trigger, but dunno.

Did some tests for the EXA Label TLB triggers :

Lost 0 life and used 4 bombs : yes (Haven't tested Lost 0 life and 5+ bomb used, but I would assume it's "yes")
Lost 1 life and used 2 bombs : yes
Lost 1 life and used 3 bombs : no
Lost 2 lives and used 1 bombs : yes
Lost 2 lives and used 2 bombs : no
Lost 3 lives and used 0 bomb : yes
Lost 3 lives and used 1 bombs : no
(Haven't tested Lost 4 lives and used 0 bombs, but I would assume it's "no")

So I assume these 2 conditions to trigger the TLB :

- No miss until Stage 7
or
- Use a maximum total of 3 lives and/or bombs until Stage 7

There is at least another condition that is multiplier/counter or score related as some runs do not fulfill these 2 conditions above and still get the TLB.

Anyone on the JP twittersphere know what the TLB requirements for Exa Label is?

I was surprised when I triggered it for the first time yesterday (https://youtu.be/tWVtbIK-4QM).

Sortof assumed you needed no miss or hit max multiplier, but here i reached it at last life and max multiplier x7.
Maybe just having a score high enough is sufficient?

Think my previous times reaching last boss (non-TLB) has all been below 400b

I did a quick search, and only found one tweet discussing this:

https://twitter.com/dbacohukai/status/1506267560169275393

He says there is a "no miss" requirement for the TLB on the Nesica version of Shin, but this is not present in EXA label (which you already discovered!).

I improved my X360 SDOJ score today:

11,735,625,345 - ALL (Lx3, Bx1)




Only one death away from reaching Hibachi! Playing the X360 version right after the PCB reminds me of how much easier it is, but it's still a lot of fun, and the Training Mode is very useful!
