I know what you mean though, I can never seem to get much from it, I usually have about 1.8mill when its dead - I just try to grab a 5 chip from one of the small vehicles just before it dies. Man I'll never get any good at the scoring in this.

I believe the system works something like this:a) If you kill an enemy while pressing A, you get extra chips based on your current chip "chain."b) If you kill an enemy while your options are in lock-on position, you will apply your multiplier to the kill (and lose some of it in the process)c) There is lag between a and b while your options are moving into position. You can exploit this to get extra chips without sacrificing any of your multiplier.

That's all about it and you can perform this trick on basically every enemy or even boss-part in the game. Good spots to make use of it are the huge sole ships right after the midboss in stage 2 or the 1st form of the midboss in stage 4. That one is pretty risky though and I am not able to perform it, but it can be seen on the Ketsui DS DVD.

I can get up to 80mil after the 3rd boss, but from then on it's gonna become catastrophic. Maybe 100mil after stage 4, then 130 after 5 like I used to.
