Re: Top Story/Chapter Scores: Updated 04/10/2020 - Now includes HP1

I just noticed that I'm both #5 and #8 on master ninja. Can someone quickly remove my #8 spot?

Re: MM High Scores List (21/09/2020) - Current Total - 58,841,795

I actually scored 25 million on every single mission and scored 50 million on Eternal Legend, putting my total at 1.2 billion! :yahoo: I don't need to show video, just trust me guys. :thumb: Jokes aside, it's remarkable seeing people still pushing this game as far as you are all these years later.

Re: Master Ninja - DS only, no UT, no Ninpo, no Healing, no Izuna Drop, no Fun

Wow, that's the worst. Almost making it to the end of a long and really hard challenge and dying because of some random BS. Hopefully your Xbox won't crash on your way to save after the challenge is done :facepalm2:

Are you getting the run on video?

Re: Master Ninja - DS only, no UT, no Ninpo, no Healing, no Izuna Drop, no Fun

Are you letting yourself use smoke bombs in the challenge? If so, they are useful for disabling the cat fiends' dodging. Cat fiends love to target you when you're in the air so try and stay grounded whenever you can. You can counter the second hit of their basic swipe attack, every other attack brea...

Re: VH karma run/MN karma run update thread

I have my Awakened Alma fight on video and it is the only clip of my MN run I have on my YT channel right now, so I'll share the video here. Awakened Alma went extremely well, I got nearly 220,000 points out of her.

Re: VH karma run/MN karma run update thread

Got chapter 15 and 16 done now. Not quite 25.1 million but I'll take it. I secured the #5 spot for MN. Here are my new scores for those chapters:

Chapter 15: 2847050 (24563530)
Chapter 16: 507490 (25071020)

Final: 25071020

Re: VH karma run/MN karma run update thread

Yes, I plan on making mission mode videos. Getting mission mode stuff on video is much easier than getting a full story mode run on video. Once I finish redoing chapter 15 of my MN run, I will start diving into mission mode. I don't have a proper capture system yet so I have to make do with the Xbox...

Re: VH karma run/MN karma run update thread

Little update: I stand by my statement that I'm never doing another full story mode karma run again. Even though my master ninja run "only" ended on 53 hours, it was still quite the ordeal. However, I still had a save at the start of chapter 15 left over, and in my run I kind of rushed through chapt...

So here are my first attempts at karma running mission mode, I started off with FC 4 and 5. My FC 5 score is 633500 right now, but the screenshot of the score isn't uploaded yet. If anyone has tips for me to improve, please tell me, because it is time for me to move on from story mode to mission mod...

Re: VH karma run/MN karma run update thread

I'll post all my chapter scores for each of my new runs that I have finished. I don't really want to do any more story mode karma runs for the time being. I do want to dive into mission mode, though.

Re: VH karma run/MN karma run update thread

Finished chapter 12. Chapter 12 went incredibly well, I got the high score for it by more than 30,000 points. I did do all town fights except two in this chapter, but still. High score! However, I did have to redo the ice caverns and most of the lava caverns because of bad essence management. Fortun...

Normally they'll roll before they go for their grab. Sometimes they can just jump right at you with the grab but that's incredibly rare.

Re: VH karma run/MN karma run update thread

Happy 4th of July if there are any Americans on the forums! Anyways, it's been a while since I've given an update on my run so I'll go ahead and do that now. I made it to chapter 12. I'm going to do all the commando fiend fights in this chapter just because it will make chapter 13 much easier. Also ...

Re: VH karma run/MN karma run update thread

For MN, I hope to get into the low 25 million range. As of the middle of chapter 9, I am almost 300,000 points ahead of my old MN run, so I feel that I have a really good shot at getting 25 million. Since there are so many more points in the later chapters, the gap between my old MN run and my new M...

Re: VH karma run/MN karma run update thread

Alright, I made it about a third of the way through chapter 8. I'm pleased with how chapter 7 went, Alma was much less annoying on this run than she was on my VH karma run. On this run, she took me about 15 minutes. On my VH run, she took over 5 hours. I can get this run done pretty quickly because ...

Re: VH karma run/MN karma run update thread

I just finished chapter 6 in the run. I'm very happy with how it went, I got almost 2.5 million out of the chapter. The archive challenge was fun. I didn't bother getting any fights on video because the chapter is mostly farming. I'm now almost 200,000 points ahead of my old MN run and I'm only just...

Re: VH karma run/MN karma run update thread

Alright, I've started redoing my old master ninja karma run. I'm halfway through chapter 4 right now. Chapter 1 was kind of mediocre, but chapters 2 and 3 went really well, I got into the top 3 for both of them. However, I lost around 7,000 points near the end of chapter 3 because the final gauntlet...

Re: Karma run redos and other fun stuff

Thanks, Kell. I'll leave going for a crazy VH run to you. I understand what your game is with leaving those two fights for chapter 12. Farming zombies with the level 1 Dabilahro and also the level 1 Lunar will get way more points with celerity. In the fiend challenge, the UF would tear through super...

Hey fellow Ninja Gaiden players, I've decided that I'm going to eventually redo all of my karma runs which I don't have scores written down for. I'll make my own thread so I don't keep flooding the story mode score thread with my posts. When I'm done with my VH karma run, I will redo my old MN run, ...
