Thanks to Unwary I can finally get around to doing some Sigma videos that aren't in negative 360p resolution :biggrin:

Got some mission mode videos planned as well but starting off with something I never got around to finishing on my old PS3 due to the yellow light hitting it which was my normal karma run.

I saw the video on YouTube. Very solid and nice score to start off your run. I believe that you can get 1,023,000 on Chapter 2. Cloud98 has the current highscore on Chapter 2 Normal difficulty (appr. 1,008,000). Though I have to say, Kelll got 23,12million with a Chapter 2 score of 1,002,770. If My disc reader didn't fry back then, I would have restarted my run starting from CH3 because I got a CH2 score of 1,005,790 which is 3,020 points higher then Kelll's.

I got a link to my CH2 video if you want to watch it and see what you can improve with all the knowledge you have from these games.
But this link is just an example video on how you can approach it: www.youtube.com/watch?v=Makl4APMAy0

Thanks Julius, I couldn't remember the trick to getting the extra enemies in chapter 2 so went with killing some extra. I'm just going for what I'm happy with on this run, already there's a lot of points left behind. Hopefully someone will go for a full blown run and record it :)

I wish I could. But stupid disc reader has fried out though my HDD remained untouched. If I get another PS3 I'll go for a full blown run. In the meanwhile, I'll save up for a new PS3. I'm in a lunch break now from work. I will be back tonight

Wow I wished you would have DMed in Discord if you wanted to know. On the 1st fight after Masakado, kill 3 enemies behind the save statue to spawn 12 enemies in that encounter.

Jules, I looked for a new PS3 recently and here in the UK they cost as much PS4s. What are the prices like around you? I hoped the PS5 would run PS3 games natively since there is a PS3 emulator out there, but whatever, I'll take it.

Saw the chapter 4 video. I would love to go for a full blown run in future days

Just watched the video of chapter 5. Why is this score in red?

I put the chapter score in red as Rachels scores don't add to the total until the end of the game. Just a way to keep track of them.

Oh, like that. BTW, I will have a new PS3 system soon. Then I can go for a full blown karma run. I already have some vids ready for the first 5 chapters.

I do believe I can beat Kelll's score with only a slight margin, though I do believe that I might get at least 50 to 60k more then Kelll. It is a work in progress, so I will lose some points here and there. Just trying to find the optimal strategies for a maximum of karma.
