The Road to 50 Million - Commentary series with Bigalski - Episode 12 up

Post by JTB123 » Wed Jun 26, 2019 7:56 pm

We're all in now :biggrin: Before I dig into the craziness of this series I have to give a big thank you to Unwary who made this possible. I put together the save for this series years ago by completing every mission on very hard with the aim of doing a full series to get 50 million and thanks to Unwary providing me an HDMI splitter you guys don't have to watch this is -240p.

The goal is pretty simple, get 50 million but there's a few things to go over. I'm going to be taking the first successful run of each mission completed on master ninja but I am going to be aiming for the best run I can get apart from missions which are incredibly annoying. For example, POTMN3 and DOTF3. Other than that I am going to try and get the best I can as this is going to be the beginnings of the MM video thread I want to start as well.

I'm not going through these missions in any particular order so each video will have a variety of missions for the most part but I will be posting all the videos separately as well but these will be without commentary.

First video is up and hopefully me and Al can record at least one per week going forward.

Enjoy :thumb: :kungfu:

Great series and glad you're making all the vids for NGS MM. Informative and fun for sure.

I love seeing this, a complete playthrough for every mission here on NGS, since NGS is like the lower quality wine compared to NGB. Still amazing though that you do MM with good explanation.

I actually want to know, what is the potential maximum for MM

Thanks Julius, I've got a lot of Sigma stuff planned over the next few weeks and I've been having a blast going back to it after all these years. I've managed to bag a few high scores on video to which I'll put in the video thread once this is all sorted and edited.

What's this bug with the Karma Window and having to disable it before missions end? I haven't heard about that before.

If you completed certain missions with the karma window open it would remove the multiplier so missions played on MN would give the same score as Normal I think.

Fortunately this only cost me one decent run so now I make a habit of turning it off just before the mission ends just in case.

Hello everyone. The following missions have the karma window bug: PotMN4 (Murai), AL1 (Smaugan), MD1 (Gamov), MD4 (Helicopter), CG4 (Rachel v. Murai), BotA2 (Spirit Doku) and GotU4 (Fiend Murai). So for those missions, close the karma window before you finish.

As Massaca said already, a huge welcome to the forums.

First of all: thank you for joining us here on NGrealm
Second: Thank you for all the missions that are bugged. This is a huge help for all of us.

Thanks, and no problem guys. Just helping out where I can. Probably learned about it way back from Bigalski’s old videos or on the old forum.

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!

Welcome to the boards Warphoenix! Great to see you on here :thumb:

Episode 6 is now up, just a heads up regarding some of the Rachel missions that I'll address in another video but her sideways and backwards rolls are actually very good. It's only the forward roll that is complete rubbish. Me and Al recorded the last few episodes before I did a lot of her missions no hurt which made me really dig into her moveset more.

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); substituting in the high(er) scores on those equivalent missions in NGB, the potential cumulative total for NGS MM could be as high as 61.5 million.

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

Post by JTB123 » Sat Aug 03, 2019 8:29 am

Parts 7 and 8 are up now, only have a couple left to record for now so this series is almost all wrapped up.

It would be awesome to crack the 60 million barrier for MM. There's still a few missions left I want to redo so there's more points there.

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 your advantage karma-wise :smile:

Which Sigma missions are you thinking of going for WR/maximal points on JTB? Personally I'd like to see you take on NP3 given your aptitude for the 100-man missions :thumb: The record currently is 1763k, and I got 1740k playing exclusively with the UF - I reckon 1.8mil+ would be possible, what do you think? I really need to work on PotMN2, possibly 3, NP3, AL2, possibly 3, AL4, MD2 and 3, and DotF2, given what people have achieved on NGB for those equivalent missions.

NP3 is definitely on my hit list, MD4 as well.

I want to go back and improve on POTMN2 and MD3 as well. The max for NP3 is tricky to determine but I think 1.8 mill would be a near perfect run. The mission would be so much better without those damn monk fiends, they ruin your UT setups so much :banghead:

Here are some old NG Sigma mission mode videos made by Hamufurai back in the day. Just uploaded them to google drive. I’ll let someone else archive them on their YouTube account. Let me know if there are any problems with the link.

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.

Welcome to the site KG1000 and Warphoenix!!

Thank you so much KG for sharing his vids . I was able to download them and I'll talk to JTB about uploading them to Youtube.

Do you have any other old vids that were lost when IW's shut down or any others in general?

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.

I will update the threads tomorrow for these and may just list them as private on YT. That way the thread will still be able to link to them to watch.

Hello again everybody. I have about 20 gigabytes of older NG videos, most of which are not on YT as far as I am aware. I assume many came from IW. The collection includes NG, NGB, NGS, NG2, karma runs, and other stuff. Here it is:

Mission Mode - 15 files - 660 MB
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1ywHPl ... _JK9rhaWc3

NGB - 118 files - 6.5 GB
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1MouTW ... pRUA2TM0_D

NGS - 29 files - 2.1 GB
https://drive.google.com/open?id=11Ho8j ... LTwd_zRmRR

NG 2004 - 2 files - 9 MB
https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Pa3Ik ... KR-XGU951v

NG2 - 72 files - 10.5 GB

Thank you but I couldn't download any of them except for the NG 2004 vids and those don't matter since they are two of my old very crappy vids. =) Could you try and upload them to MediaFire as they seem to big for Google Drive but that's just my assumption. Hopefully that will work. Sorry for any extra work but having more of the history of the series would be awesome.
