Re: Master Collection Changes

I tested that as well and it seems very inconsistent. Against a normal soldiers assault rifle I got knocked out of aiming mode every time. Against the turrets in chapter 11 they didn't knock me out of it, maybe it's due to distance or what inputs you are buffering. I always hold block+X to cancel th...

Master Collection Changes

Will make another forum if there are enough changes to warrant it. I'll just update this as I go through the game and note down any that I find. Sigma 1: Mission mode time scoring is like NGB and NGS, not like it was in the actual Vita version. More testing needed but 200k difference between mission...

Re: Karma run work in progress (Chapter 5 complete)

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.

Re: Karma run work in progress (Chapter 5 complete)

I didn't think of that now you mention it due to the extra scarab you get in chapter 9. I'd say it's definitely worth it for the first few fights of chapter 10 if you can grab it early, it shouldn't take much time and as long movement is on point you should have the time to get it.

Looking at the video again this would have been my pattern: First two fights - Save Bikes - Save Lily key door & Ninjas - Save Bikes & blue door - Save Farm Kills - Save Save statue ninjas - Save Plaza door & both ninja fights before Hydra gauntlet - Save Whenver you see a transition in my videos is...

This will be an interesting watch :) I remember this is how most people got all the weapon achievements back in the day but it was done on Acoyte.

Re: Karma run work in progress (Chapter 5 complete)

Awesome job man, really enjoying the run. At the risk of stating the obvious don't forget the crazy number of kills for chapter 6, if you're getting really frustrated with the run a break can just be the thing. A week away from it really lets you recharge and come back fresh.

Re: Karma run work in progress (Chapter 4 complete, OOHRAH)

This game will be truly savage on a karma run, somtimes you just have to know when it's better to come back later. I don't normally play for anything longer than half an hour depending on the fight, if the game doesn't give it you in that time odds are today just isn't that day. I was playing the cr...

Re: NGB and NGII master-files lost/scattered, unrecoverable

Oh man, did they give any idea of when this happened? Guessing if it was recent we were pretty lucky in a way to get NGB and NG2 remasters on the XB1.

That really doesn't bode well for ever seeing the HPs return either :(

Re: Karma run work in progress (Chapter 3 complete, finally)

Been ages since I did chapter 4 but from what I remember you have to never look at the enemy on the balcony across from the blue wire. If you kill him off screen the time won't show up and you can UT the other guy, you will lose the credit for that kill but the UT is worth more overall. Might just n...

Re: Karma run work in progress (Chapter 3 complete, finally)

Probably sound like a broken record at this point but are you doing mock runs to map out your route so you know you have enough time? Odds are on a karma run you are doing to be running every fight down to the last second, so do the chapter before hand in one go with the pattern you have in mind and...

Re: Karma run work in progress (Chapter 3 complete, finally)

Nice work man, must be karma running in the air because I had a great session on chapter 14 earlier. I really hope the master collection gets more people into making vids for Sigma 1.

Do you know what kind of score you're aiming for on this?

Changes and Additions compared to Sigma/Black - Last Update 15/03/2021

Dusted off the old Vita this week thanks to a YouTube comment reminding me that I never wrapped up all the trophies in this game and it's really got me hooked. For one I forgot just how impressive this game is running on a Vita and second there is a lot of new content in this game and changes. Seein...

Re: The Challenge of the Gods

Are all fights and Tests of Valor a requirement? This run sounds pretty juicy I have to say. Despawning is allowed, so far nobody has attempted the rod of trials fight... We try to despawn as little as possible tho... For example, skip the talons to not make the rod fight spawn, and instead just fi...

For future scores though It's easier if you just wait until the run is finished, then I can just update the thread in one go.

Re: Mission Mode Videos: High Scores, Speed Runs, No Hurt Runs, Wooden Sword Runs (07/12/2020) 58.7M on video!

Bit of a throwback, I added a segment for Wooden Sword runs on master ninja :) There was a bit of debate way back when over what really qualified as a wooden sword run; for instance if someone used mainly throws on man sized enemies instead of the wooden sword but for now I think as long you use the...

End of Chapter Clear Time and Kills.

Long overdue getting these posted here. For anyone wanting to karma run, you need these :thumb: Remember that you must finish a chapter under the time in these tables so the clear time is 1 second less than the full time allocated.

Is that for HP1 or the regular game? For the normal game that does seem like it'd be way too high.
