Re: MM High Score List (27th Aug 2019) - Current Total - 60,020,363

Just edged past hamufurai's old CG3 record (Save Rachel) with 935,352 (148k ET/UTs, 20k essence, ~400 secs and full health). Not a lot to say about this mission: UT the ghost fish pairs at the start for four UTs, collect the final pair's essences, then UT the eight archers and collect all of their e...

Re: MM High Score List (27th Aug 2019) - Current Total - 60,020,363

Two new records today: PotMN1 with 751,010 (89k ET/UTs, ~17.5k essence, 26 enemies, ~225 secs and ~30 percent health), and GotU2 (UF Clone) with 560,005 (53k ET/UTs, ~170 secs and ~30 percent health, including UT'd clone essence w/o benediction [8,928]). PotMN1 is a tricky mission to get top-tier sc...

Re: MM High Score List (27th Aug 2019) - Current Total - 60,020,363

Just broke the MD1 (Gamov) record with 492,207 (35k UTs, 3,388 essence, 110 secs, ~60% health). Been wanting to break this one for a long time and finally had an insane run that didn't go down the pan at the end :yahoo: Hamufurai's 473k vid shows that you can score lucky UTs on Gamov with the Dragon...

Re: MM High Score List (27th Aug 2019) - Current Total - 60,020,363

Scratch those totals - just got the new record for GotU1 (Lunar Clone) with 790,185 (83k ET/UTs, 138 secs, ~60 percent health). Pretty happy with the score, as I landed all 15 incendiary shuriken UTs on the clone for 75k, then four lunar ETs (three using the in-air hit-and-windmill shuriken-trick fo...

Re: MM High Score List (27th Aug 2019) - Current Total - 60,020,363

After finally getting round to revisiting MM, a few small updates needed here. CG4 is now 528,422 (37k UTs, ~1.5k essence, ~100 secs and ~70 percent health), FC1 is 959,002 (145k UTs + DDB'd essence, ~240 secs, ~5 percent health), and FC2 905,577 (115k UTs + DDB'd essence, ~200 secs and ~80 percent ...

Re: Mission Mode Videos: High Scores, Speed Runs, No Hurt Runs (29/07/2020) 58M on video!

Have you checked out Dark Hazuki's lunar strat that doesn't involve any damage other than that of the lunar UTs? It's on YT as 'Dark Hazuki Karma strategies' uploaded by xfactorhatesu. Haha, thanks for a blast from the past. I hunted that video down and watched it. Can't believe it's 10+ years old....

Re: Mission Mode Videos: High Scores, Speed Runs, No Hurt Runs (29/07/2020) 58M on video!

Really nice work Kelll :thumb: This is a great way to get a pretty high number of UTs, and in good time too! I believe the DDB UT finisher to get the clone's essence doesn't work in NGB like it does in Sigma (although I could be wrong there, please correct me if so). Given the damage that the windmi...

Re: MM High Scores List (29/06/2020) - Current Total - 58,806,400

No worries man (apologies for the novel :smile: ). The lunar UT/camera control stuff is quite hard to explain, really you've just got to keep practising it in-game and it'll become more apparent what works and what doesn't. Yeah I would like to make some MM vids in the future - I've got screenshots ...

Re: MM High Scores List (29/06/2020) - Current Total - 58,806,400

Hey TGD, so my HS strategy for BotA2 turned out to be a slight variation on Hamufurai's 1055k vid (I didn't even know if Hamufurai had used the same core strat as me until some of his old MM vids were posted by kg1000 just last year). As you show in your vid, the trick is to keep Doku on the outside...

Re: The Road to 50 Million - Commentary series with Bigalski - Episode 9 and 10 up

Thanks Bigalski! Do you (or anyone else) remember if hamufurai had any more vids on IW beyond what kg has posted? Would have really liked to see his 641k PotMN4 (Murai),1637k NP4, and 1012k AL2 (Yotunfrau) runs, as those scores in particular are seriously impressive.

Re: The Road to 50 Million - Commentary series with Bigalski - Episode 9 and 10 up

Thanks so much for these vids kg! Never thought I'd get the chance to see more of hamufurai's gameplay as I wasn't on the NG scene until after IW had gone down.

Just got two new records: 863,607 on DoTF5 and 1,774,737 on NP3. The 863k run was not too far from a perfect run realistically speaking, could have had one more UT in place of an emergency-release ET for ~871k but the imps don't tend to cooperate for individual UTs very often :smile: While I'm fairl...

Re: The Road to 50 Million - Commentary series with Bigalski - Episode 7 and 8 up

The UT glitch with Rachel where she doesn't appear to hold the hammer can be triggered fairly consistently right at the start of UC5 (Doku) if you jump backwards into an OLC. However, in UC5 the resultant ET/UT still awards you the points and doesn't kill the Silver Samurai, so you can use this to y...

Just got the new record for NP5 with 1,213,632 (170k UTs, ~15k essence, ~270 secs). Incredibly I only got knocked out of 1 UT by the Wisp Phantoms during the second half of the mission (decided to opt for charge-release-charge rather than going for OL UTs), and went from 94k to 170k during this phas...

Thanks JTB, good to be on here! :thumb: As for what the potential Mission Mode maximum is Julius, as you can imagine it's difficult to give a precise estimate. I've worked out the theoretical maximum for quite a few of the missions (pretty accurately on those for which I hold the current record); su...

Re: The Essence Guide. (updated with full Mission Mode breakdown)

After a brief discussion with JTB, decided to post this here for others' insights. Yebyosh's old NGB Essence FAQ quotes an essence multiplier of 1.20995 (+20.995%) when Armlet of Benediction is equipped. This conflicts with the 1.206 (+20.6%) stated above - in my experience with Sigma's Mission Mode...

Hey everyone. In addition to the above missions, UC2 (the infamous double tank mission) also suffers from the karma window glitch. Good to know when going for a karma run on this mission!

Hey everyone, good to finally be on the forums.
