My first no-miss clear in AK (PS4)!  :righton: Done with the stock PS5 controller.  :cool:

427,111, 340 - ALL [Lx5, Bx3] - Type 3



Replay is on the PS4 leaderboards, as usual. Pretty good from start to finish, except ST5 where I only got 90mil. I usually get around 98mil there.

Another Akai Katana (PS4) increase:

419,195,720 - ALL [Lx3.5, Bx5] - Type 3



One death in the middle of Stage 3, with several million lost in the stage due to that. I also messed up the scoring on the ST5 and ST6 bosses.

After playing Arcade mode (PS4 port) more in-depth, I can confirm no-miss rank begins at least as early as the start of Stage 3 (not the start of Stage 5). But, if, for example, you die on the Stage 2 boss, and no miss to the start of Stage 5, the bullet patterns in Stage 5 are close to those you would see after no-missing the game to the start of Stage 5. Perhaps not quite as dense, but certainly denser than if you die on the Stage 4 boss and start Stage 5. Typical Yagawa-style, the longer you survive without dying, the greater the rank becomes.

The number of lives in stock may also play a role. For example, starting Stage 3 with five lives in stock instead of four or three.

Finally got over 400mil in Akai Katana (PS4)!

409,017,690 - ALL [Lx4, Bx3] - Type 3



Replay is on the PS4 leaderboards. I'm really loving this game now that I understand the intricacies of the scoring. My ST1-3 patterns are pretty solid, but I still don't have a clear pattern throughout ST4 or ST5, so I'll start practicing those in training mode.

Very impressive, as usual, buffi! Your pdf reads like an article in an academic journal.

Thought I'd post this here as well, since there might be interest here.

I spent some time doing research on how the CV1000 Blitter works. There's a pretty long doc describing it here.
https://buffis.com/research/cv1000-blitter-research/

It's not fully complete (see future work section), but this should cover most of it.

Last score from me for 2022. Getting close to 400mil in Akai Katana, but not quite there yet!

393,452,120 - ALL [Lx4, Bx4] - Type 3



Pretty good run except for Stage 3, which I messed up. I got 87mil there in training mode today, but only 73mil in this run.

I think Tamashii might be included. Ditto for the "Dodonpachi III" ROM. M2 are known to include international or rare arcade ROM variations.

I doubt DOJ X-Mode will appear. M2 did not include in their PS4 Ketsui port the excellent Ketsui X-Mode that 5pb made for the X360 port, after all. I suspect 5pb owns the rights to their own arrange versions.
