Can I just ask please, on MJR's screenshot, what do the four lines of Japanese text with the % scores relate to? I can't find a translation.
Thanks!

Your skill (determines the end of stage bonus and is composed the the following three percentages)
Enemy destruct rate
Radar destruct rate (= secrets uncovered)
Guts bonus (relates to how "risky" you play, i.e. amount of time spent in top half of screen, scratching of bullets, etc. In the arcade version you can get really hight guts by keeping the start button depressed during play, doesn't work in the PS1 version though)

Tried this for the first time a while ago and found it a lot more fun that I had thought. Will play more.

Erppo - 4,892,020 - 1-5(c) - 2P - Novice - PS Arcade difficulty

NMNB until the final boss, which I messed up completely. Got all the radars and all bomb pick ups as yellow. Could probably break 5M with a bit more effort but I think I'll look at the other courses instead.

Nice job 8) , I find the Novice course to be harder than expert for some reason.

Thanks guy. That's weird advice. I'm pretty intimidated by expert course. I'm just tryin' to get a 1 life clear to mix another video. Hopefully I can get out of this with a better score. I dunno if I wanna worry about TLBs 'n remembering 9 more gold pyramids. This whole game is a silly psycological battle with greed. 'Not sure, it didn't look like clearing with spare lives gives a better score. I felt dumb not knowing where the stage 3 1up is, but it's not in the strat guides, so...

Secret is in the last crate just before the first big stretch of water, about a minute into the level. You need to allow a certain tank to back into that crate, and then you have to wait about two more seconds for a 1up to pop out: nico clip

It's more a bit of trivia than something you'd want to go for in a score run. There's no spare life bonus for clearing Novice, and even if you learn how to get the extend without bombing, you're still sacrificing the medal or Miclus you'd get by blasting the box.

Nice!

Bumping this also reminded me to post my old scores for the other modes here too. I really need to get back to this game.

Erppo - 3,437,990 - 1-6 - 2P - Advanced - PS Arcade difficulty

As soon as I get a new PSX console, this won't go unanswered! :twisted:

Quite a few enemies slipped through the cracks, but medal timing went pretty well.

The major improvement came from the third boss, for which I finally learned the long 'n lucrative method after years of settling for the instakill. Seven million or bust!

Nice job, I'm sure you'll reach 7 mil easily. Also, about the third boss, are you sure it's better to make the fight last longer than just finishing it off quickly? Does milking this boss yield more points than getting the timer-based bonus for killing it faster?

Since the boss timer doesn't start until you blow the cover off, it's actually possible to keep it intact to the end of the canal while you time medals and kill things. Then when you're good and ready, you can remove the cover and get the 3-4 second boss kill.

Here's what I've been doing: youtu.be/v182xBa24Tw

That looks like a great strategy, I'll give it try sometime. Also, this might be off topic, but can anyone tell me if this is actual Raiden DX arcade artwork, just like the description says, or if it's from another game. http://m.flickr.com/#/photos/diptera/4209645640/

I mistimed some Micluses so I can definitely eke out a bit more.

I think 7.2m will be a good point at which to cease spamming the thread. :P

Edit: I uploaded a slightly lower-scoring run here.

Sorry if this off topic again, but does anyone know what it says in the yellow subtitle on the title screen of the PSX version of Raiden DX?

Got back to this great game to fix some things with my Expert score.

Erppo - 4,651,350 - 2-1 - 2P - Advanced - PS Arcade difficulty
Image

Death in 1-3 kind of ruined the score and I bombed several times in 1-8 because I'm a coward. I guess practicing 2-1 at least a bit would have helped too :lol:.

I finally got back to this game after a while, and my skills are rusty, although I managed to improve my Novice and Expert scores somewhat.
Here are my new scores
Emo Fox Jet Pilot - 4,450,560 - 1-5 - 2P - Novice course - PS Arcade difficulty
Emo Fox Jet Pilot - 4,118,430 - 1-6 - 2P - Expert course - PS Arcade difficulty

Scratch my last Novice score please, here's my new one:

Emo Fox Jet Pilot - 4,538,020 - 1-5(c) - 2P - Novice course - PS Arcade difficulty

I am super happy though because I made it through with no deaths, but I bomb spammed against the 3rd and 5th bosses. I also missed the Stage 3 gold pyramid because I always confuse it with the spot of where it is on the Expert Course.
