How big a part of a good score run would typically be from excess speed-ups?

Any surplus speed-up is worth 5,000 points which adds up quite nicely. I don't have precise numbers, but looking at my MD scores I got with and without maximizing the speed, I had a difference of roughly 700,000 points over the course of almost two loops, so let's just say 300,000 to 350,000 points per loop (the values are extremely similar in the arcade game). If you manage to beat the game without dying it's obviously quite a bit more, if you barely beat the loop it's consequently less.

While it is more or less optional in the original Tatsujin, you definitely have to play like this in Tatsujin Ou, you need every single life you can get to clear the loop. It doesn't help that enemies are worth so little in that game, too.

So, basically around 25% of a decent player's score?

Yes, that seems to be pretty accurate. While on the topic of Tatsujin, I recently discovered that you're either guaranteed or have a really high chance of getting two extends out of each of the first two coloured crates in the PCE Tatsujin, but only in the first loop. :o If you play well enough you can start the third loop with over three dozen lives, it's quite comfortable (not that it would make said loop much easier in any case...).

FINALLY cleared Gokujou Parodius including the Special Stage. This one has been eluding me for some good time, so glad to have this in the back. Also got a Gallop 2-ALL prior to this which is neat since I believe there is not a single 2-ALL video (outside of that useless World of Longplay run) out there.

Now I'm ready for the Parodius Da! 2-ALL, Shepardus. :mrgreen:
