God I hate 5-2 :(  I lost 4 sodding lives on it there.  2 of which were during the stage :whyioughtta:




I've given up hope of the 1CC and I'll just focus all my efforts into a gnarly stage 1 score.  

No more 2.3 million for me every credit :D

freddiebamboo - 32,272,960 - 5-2

Lost 3 lives in quick succession on the first form of the last boss.  I lose soooooo many lives trying to pick up power ups after dying on bosses it isn't even funny.

Still, I made it over 30mil which I'm happy about :D

BTW, what do the gems next to some of the stages mean?

I wonder if MrMonkeyMan will throw up a score? If so, we're all doomed.

I thought the green gems next to the stage scores indicate the highest recorded scores for that stage?

Great score btw. :righton:

Cheers mate, I think you're right about the gems, although I could have sworn I've done better on 5-1 before.

Meh.

Icarus - 35,571,070 - Stage 5-2 - (PS2)



Mistakes all over the place, including running into a random bullet during the stage3 midboss, and twice somewhere in stage4. Credit ended at Jakou, first form, second bar. About a few hits before the break. -_-;;

Replay recorded.

First night of play after returning home from London Meet VI. Wiped my old scores, so I could record my progress. Still need to get some sharpness back, and try to recall all of my old routes through the stages.

On a related note, managed to break 1000 Gold before stage1's Seseri with Tateha, for the first time ever. My best previously was 999, several years ago...



Quite a feat for me. And yes, I suck. -_-;;

I don't think I've ever gotten 1000 gold on stage 1, w/ either character.

Nah, you should enter a score anyway dude. I plan to, despite the fact my total time on arcade mode is around 3-4 hours, and my score is ubershit. :)

Plus you stand a chance of being picked to select the next challenge. ;)

EDIT: How in the hell are you people getting your gold to near enough 1000 on stage one? That's gotta set you up for a hell of a lot of points by the time you complete stage 2.

By the time I defeat the first boss I think my gold counter is around 350-450, with a score of 1.4 - 1.6m. :(

With great difficulty.

In reality I average between 900-940 Gold before the stage1 boss, and yes, it does help stage2 scoring greatly. With a decent start (say, around 900 before Seseri v1), I can finish stage2 with over 10mil (taking around 7mil+ from the stage itself). The problem with pushing for 1k Gold on stage1 is managing Tateha's attacks in Kakusei Mode, but recently I've worked out a few new tricks, compared to two years ago when my control in most games wasn't as refined.

If you're interested, a couple of old (read: two years old) stage runs are located here:
http://www.ikaruga.co.uk/files/fw/st_espgaluda/

Improved my stage2 (now 7.6mil) and stage4 (now 8.5mil). Both recorded.
Still working on sharpening my stage3 and 5-1.

Score update over the weekend, maybe.

@harlequin: i think you should post your score anyways, it's nothing to be concerned about  :)  if i was embarassed about each time i've posted a crap score i would never turn the computer on  :lol:  plus, like kaede said, you might get to choose next month's game  ;)

Thats a very nice stage 4 score Icarus :cool:

I've been putting off refining my stage 4 due to the safe, comfortable route I meander through it with, but my scoring is very poor there so I'll be going to work adding a mil or two on my score with it.

And cheers for linking those old vids :)

Can anyone take a stab at how many points you're sacrificing when you die around the end of stage 4 or beginning of stage 5?  Too much math going on for me to figure it out.

Getting better at stage 1, but 3 mil is my top score.  Just realized I was missing some points on stage 2 as well.  Now to just not die all the time.

I played a couple credits last night, got 20mil-ish scores up to the last stage. I totally forgot all the patterns in this game. I plan to practice some more this weekend.

Managed to get a credit in tonight:

EOJ - 28,237,580 - Stage 5-2

Died on the very last form of the last boss. Not bad considering I got to the 5-2 boss fight with no spare lives left.

It only took me a day or so to get back in the swing, but I totally forgot all the shit on the last boss.  He's kind of an asshole considering the curve of the game.  5-1 is a bit harder than I remember as well, althugh I don't think I ever really got very good at the last part, or Seseri for that matter.
