I have no idea unfortunately, I don't have those saves anymore. You could do a mock run for that segment and record it and then that would give you an idea of your in game at that point, as long as it replicates what you're planning it would be pretty accurate.

Ok, because for some reason between farming the kills and the drawbridge Hill save statue I spend 6 minutes while I'm way faster than that.

I'll see what I can do to save even more time on several gauntlets. Might even have to redo the lily key door and moat Road fights

I could redo those and farm at the same time my kills. Also I might have to do the bike, blue door and drawbridge Hill in one gauntlet

Bad news:

I wanted to give this another go but it seems that my last CH4 save is the only save slot that survived corruption :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead: .

I'll put the CH5 vid as private and remake the CH4 last gauntlet.

Hopefully I might get an even better score out of it.

Are you using PS plus to back up saves? Would definitely recommend that going forward.

That's a real shame but at least it's not a completely dead run. Always looking forward to more vids from the run :)

it is on my Us account and I cannot use PS Plus on that as I live in Europe and no credit cards are accepted

And I looked at your vids again, but I cannot see how I spend more time whilst saving less and doing certain fights a lot quicker. Every time I completed CH6 I was always 2 minutes over time.
I tried to see where I can shave off time but I think this might not work as my game is bugged to the limit.

I will put this one on Hold till further notice

Without seeing your video to compare all I can say is keep in mind what me and Al have said over the years when it comes to the lower difficulties and time. Every single thing you do can hurt your time, unless it's going to directly affect your karma then skip it. This can be something as simple as picking up an item you don't need or checking your menu more than you need to.

If you could post the video to private for chapter 6 I could do a side by side, I've never had any issues with the in game timer but you never know. You could also do a mock run to see what time you get just for a frame of reference.

Good news, I managed to recover my save file and decided to redo that last gauntlet from CH4. I scored a few points better than last time (685,550 to be precise)

And as for chapter 6 I cannot start it yet as I haven't redone CH5. I intent not to record this as Murphy's Law always interferes with my success

Little update here:

So for Chapter 6 I planned out the next, knowing I have to kill 8 enemies just to drag essence

Gauntlet 1:

Fight 1: 2 UT's
Fight 2: UT + ET (farm 2 kills before)
Fight 3: 5 UT's + 1 ET (farm 2 kills before) -> Save

Gauntlet 2:

Fight 4: 3 UT's (Kelll trick with the two rats + killing commander guy on balcony)
Fight 5: 2 UT's + ET (farm 2 kills before)
Farm 18 Kills -> Save

Gauntlet 3:

Fight 6: 2 UT's (farm 2 kills before)
Fight 7: 2 UT's + ET (Dragging essence from bikes if no reds)
Fight 8: UT + ET (smoke bomb after loading screen) -> Save

Gauntlet 4:

Fight 9: 3 UT's (farm 2 kills before)
Fight 10: 3 UT's
Fight 11: UT + ET (dragging essence from last fight)
Fight 12: Min 5 UT's (farm 2 kills before + completing within 30 seconds)
Fight 13: Min 6 UT's (trying to save as much time as possible)
Boss: trying to kill within 35 seconds

Desired score: 850,000 (Acceptable score: 835,000)
