Plasmo requested that I take over this topic via DMs yesterday, so I'm going ahead and doing so.

Each game is going to have seperate tables, & each ship will have their own table, due to different playstyles. There is a Exa port coming out in the near future; might look into adding that if it has differences compared to Delta.

Old thread can be found here: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=18327. I will update the rest of the board later today, and possibly add another column for replay links.

Please use this format for submitting scores:


Please use this format:

score & name & power up level & area (clear / -) & rollbutton used (yes / no) & ship used & platform (MAME/PS2/PS4/Steam/Switch)

Medium Unit
Axion-μ



Axion-R


Blanche





Revision
Axion-μ


Axion-R


Blanche




Delta
Axion-μ

Psyvariar: Revision
61,817,800 & maximo & 264 & X-D & Yes & Axion R & Steam

Image

This run went fairly well from getting my highest end of stage 2 level ( 73), finally over 10k buzz in a run for photon, and some extra buzz here & there. Very surprised that I made it through X-D stage with only 1 bomb. Getting the extra lv ups for the final form gave a noticeable damage boost on gluon; will need to continue studying his attack patterns ( even if I'm slowly getting the hang of them).

Edit 6/17/2020 Psyvariar: Medium Unit (Axion R)
54,558,170 & maximo & 384 & 6-B ALL & Axion R & Steam
Image

ez 3 cycle gluon milk was enough to get over 50 million. Probably going to see if I can record a similar run in the near future.

Edit 6/18
Psyvariar Revision:
62,236,600 & maximo & 272 & X-D & Yes & Axion-R & Steam
Another run with silly mistakes; another game over to gluon. Replay is linked on the chart above & here: https://youtu.be/M-z1fjz3A_c

Psyvariar Medium Unit: Axion R
56,439,720 & maximo & 385 & 6-B ALL & Yes & Steam https://youtu.be/Vf52x-dxH4I

Great run, especially on 4-D/6-B compared to previous PB attempts. May push for 60 million if I can find additional optimizations elsewhere.

Psyvariar: Medium Unit
16,009,710 & Prinny & 123 & 6-B ALL & Yes & Axiom-μ & Steam & Video

I'll most likely try to tackle Revision before I consider trying to improve this. I'll need to study the bosses a bit more and figure out how to milk them.

Nice to see a new thread; sad to see Plasmo pass on the reigns but it's good to continue to maintain activity for such a fabulous game. I've practiced a little bit on and off and I am rusty so I am a ways away from getting back to my PB... But I don't plan on letting Maximo hog all the fun with 60+ million scores.

Prinny, nice on the MU clear! I'm really intimidated to learn MU scoring and routing; I feel like my mind is so used to Revision's "as many buzzes as you want" playstyle that I'd be inadvertently killing myself left and right.

A new PB for the first time since February! This doesn't change my standing in the leaderboard at all, but it's nice to know that I can get back to where I was months ago. This was at the tail-end of three hours (spread over two nights) of heavy full-run grinds. This probably was not the way to go about things especially given the games' excellent practice mode, but I had it in my head and couldn't change it... to my detriment.

I choked to AFX and lost two lives there. I decided to soldier on expecting to die at graviton like I usually do. Miraculously I survived that hellish boss fight. I usually pick 4-C because it's easier to level up there, but since I wanted to specifically get a new personal best, I knew that end-of-stage bonuses were everything, so I chickened out and picked an easier, but far less lucrative 4-B, Zero Space. The level is so short, damn. The boss went down like nothing too, with no time to milk it. That and being nervous on my last life I decided that I wasn't going to try and go for 'gluon pace' with it. Barely any levels gained in 4-B, the scoring potential seems so low compared to all the shit flying at you in 4-C Colony.

One HELL of an update coming through! The race to Gluon is on again! :mrgreen:

66,943,600 & EmperorIng & 267 & X-D & Yes & Axion R & Steam & https://www.twitch.tv/videos/776947856

Image

This run has equal parts stupid mistakes (death on Photon? Check! Death at BJOK? Check!), and sheer dumb luck dodges that can only happen in Psyvariar. With those two elements in play, a whole bunch of individual practice and grinding resulted in my finally overcoming the hump of X-C, with a clutch fight of Weakboson on my last life giving me access to X-D, finally.

X-D is the stage I'm least familiar with, but a little bit of practice play and general skills (be aggressive, tap the roll button to increase speed) allowed me to see that boss I've been waiting for years to reach! Even at my EXP level I was pretty amazed at how slowly Gluon's health drains. If I make it back here again I can be assured of a long grueling fight. I just need to use less bombs and have one less death, and maybe I stand a chance.

Was neat seeing you run this yesterday. Looking forward to seeing you get the TLB clear! :D

I just caught up with the rest of the video, and nice job on leap frogging to the #2 spot! Your Weakboson fight was pretty damn good; I usually skip some of the patterns near the end just to have more bombs for the nasty TLB ( and 1 extra life if possible; I usually don't get him with one tho)

This is gonna give me some more motivation to get back into Revision; haven't really played much of it since June (when I mostly started practicing for Calice Cup PC Special games), but I do want to get that X-D clear before the end of the year!

True to form, I ended up procrastinating on my goal to beat Ing's big PB, and beat the game on one credit. After checking out the Exa Arcade port of Delta last week, a fire was reignited in my heart and I ended up playing a few runs over the course of this week. Somehow tonight, I broke past my string of Graviton game-overs, and finally put this game to rest ( & made it to the finish line to beating Gluon!)

71,337,800 & maximo & 287 & X-D ALL & Yes & Axion R & Steam & https://youtu.be/y8N9Y3dsoeM

Image

I ended up having a great first 3 stages, including a great Photon fight. For the next set of stages through X-C, I focused on getting as many lv ups while playing it safe on the bosses. When I got to X-D, I was able to steamroll through most of the stage thanks to hitting lv256 right after Weakboson, and might be a great way to help with survival for any prospective players. I entered the Gluon fight with 4 bombs, and had some extremely lucky level ups on his second form, allowing me to no-miss the game!

At some point, I do want to spend a bit of time figuring out how you can get enough resources to milk Gluon for points, but Im happy with this run at the moment!

Impressive stuff Maximo! :D

I found out what a gem this game is thanks to their latest sale on Switch (75% off). Couldn't say no to that even though I wasn't too sold on the idea at first. More people need to play this, it's fantastic!

My ultimate goal would be to get a X-D clear, but for now here's the results for my X-C clear:

49,051,500 & SPM & 210 & X-C ALL & Yes & Axion R & Switch & Image
Image

I wonder what stages should I focus on to increase my level up to 218+ without getting into super risky territory...

Got the Delta clear earlier today as well!

73,718,300 & maximo & 291 & X-D ALL & Yes & Axion R & Steam & https://youtu.be/dylZgexWJsI

Image

Lost one life on Gluon, but otherwise I pulled through with some cheesy strats, especially on 4-C.

I'll also open up a table for Delta AC ( exa-arcadia) if anyone posts Delta mode scores from that version, as stage layouts and some enemy/boss patterns have been altered to be more diificult compared to the PS4/Switch/Steam version.

Edit:
Got a higher Revision run & broke 80 million!

80,268,400 & maximo & 305 & X-D ALL & Yes & Axion R & Steam & https://youtu.be/pX7yNkMhN0s

PB'd in Psy: Medium Unit on as well via Score Attack

23,430,500 & maximo & 193 & 6-B ALL & Yes & Axion R & Steam

(9/24) Slight pb in revision

84,202,800 & maximo & 308 & X-D ALL & Yes & Axion R & Steam & https://youtu.be/-ynNLx963z4

Broke the 100 million wall on Psyvariar Revision!

101,171,000 & maximo & 338 & X-D ALL & Yes & Axion R & Steam & https://youtu.be/6rjn8qGDACc

Learning Weakboson & Gluon's patterns will net you a ton of score if you can set it up correctly. I came into the Gluon fight with 6 bombs, and had 4 for his final attack pattern. I'll have to keep study's afx-2 to minimize deaths on the side turret milk, along with finding score gains elsewhere ( such as learning 3-C).

New community record on Psy Revision!

Image
110,179,100 & maximo & 350 & X-D ALL & Yes & Axion R & Steam & https://youtu.be/YJexDU-cd6Y

Not the greatest 2-D/3-C/4-D along with a dumb death on the AFX-2 side turrets & a popcorn on 4-D. On the other hand, a clutch Weakboson/Gluon fight made up for that difference. The #1 spot on Steam is only 115 million, so I'll keep pushing this game.
