Been a while guys!

Just had this run on twitch. Full bomb bonus going into 2-4, first time I ever did that! Played a bit panicky after finishing 2-3 as I knew I finally beat my old score, but this time, I did it getting an ALL as well! 8)

JPN PCB all defaults

STG - 128,519,130 - ALL - Ring/Nail (Lx0, Bx1)

Wow, congrats STG! Nice to see that your PB's now an ALL too!

I guess I might as well post my score from a while back since it's apparently not the lowest here:

Japanese version
Shepardus - 15,052,840 - 1-ALL - Bolt - Nail - (A+B+S fwd gunpod form.)

Thanks man, nice seeing all the practice translate into something tangible. I still got some more work to do. ;)

Updated.

I need to reach out to some of the other HS board maintainers and see what they use to update the scores. I need to clean this one up a bit, but there has to be a better way than way I have been messing with lol.

Thanks NTSC-J and sorry about that, my schedule was a little erratic this week and I didn't play much or during my usual times at night.

Next goal, hmm... beat 136 million? ;)

Honestly, I'll be looking at improving a few different things: first remove the few bombing spots I use on my line in 2-4 (and that I have down to 1 now on a "good" run) and hopefully remove a bomb or two on 2-5. Then just improve my play on Korogis (especially the one fast moving right-to-left attack you simply have to sight dodge), Kraken (there's a few patterns I can improve here), and Volvox.

Volvox is an interesting one as I found out on the final TLB portion of that fight he actually does have some kind of shield when you bomb. I measured out the time between one of my earlier ALL runs and compared it to hoge_master's flawless handling of it and he shaves basically a minute off that section by not bombing. I tried getting a good rhythm and managed to do most of the damage when I had just one life left, but I still heavily bomb that part. Would be nice to improve that, especially since I'm throwing away a million on every bomb I use!

Other than that, I might also try to improve scoring on the first loop, as there's a lot of techniques that I seldom use that could greatly improve my score. Or only attempt the second loop with the full bomb bonus, but that's going to throw away a lot of attempts/practice and I don't think my game is quite there yet.

I'm still having a lot of fun playing this game, and I do feel like I could definitely score higher and play better, so I'm going to keep at it! My run above I was completely in shock by finally getting to 2-4 with a full bomb bonus and it (unsurprisingly) resulted in a near immediate death, so I didn't get to capitalize on it. Next time I'll be much more relaxed. :)

Hey all! Got a new top score this evening, NMNB until 2-4. Sadly no ALL with this run, which is kind of funny considering I had no problem getting to Volvox 3 times yesterday, and then having a real good run that I just collapsed on earlier today... But hey, it is what it is!

Here's the vid on twitch (https://www.twitch.tv/gunnerstg/v/77403184), I'll add the better quality version of it I captured to youtube this week.

Wow, awesome job STG! Congrats! Great to see that you're still working on this. Great video as well, I'm really liking the cam by the stick.

Thanks Battlesmurf, and thanks pestro87, I was hoping the cam added a little something extra to watch in the stream! :D

Yeah, I still thoroughly enjoy playing the game and feel like I can improve some more, next I'm going to stop using bombs on 2-4 (at least for the stage) as I'm pretty confident with my line. And build up some better consistency on 2-5, that's my goal now!

Nice job Shepardus!

Funny day for shmups for me, first I 1CC both Mushihimesama's Original and Maniac modes, then I had this. And someone (Van Artic?) was asking me when my next PB was, guess it was today!

Shame I couldn't 2ALL it, I got to Volvox the run before but no ALL, so while it was disappointing in this run I couldn't capitalize on that part I wasn't too upset with my performance. :D One death early on, then NMNB until just past the 1-up on 2-4 (first death was on Kraken). After that I kinda fell apart lol.

Just had this run on twitch, almost hurts turning off my supergun seeing that score ranking screen! Next thing to do: work on NMNB-ing 2-4. And I think I'm not that far off in doing so, just need to consistently get the 1up in that stage without bombing... Always more work to do! :D

STG - 165,397,600 - ALL - Ring/Nail (Lx3, Bx1)

And the full run is watchable in my highlights now: https://www.twitch.tv/gunnerstg/v/109056187

Uhhh, well... That was rather soon! Full bomb bonus kept right until the end of the fight with Kraken in 2-4, it broke my heart to use a bomb but I had no choice. Such a crazy pattern. I'll be uploading the run to youtube once I process the vid, as I didn't feel like streaming tonight (sorry). :( Wasted a lot of resources early in 2-5, but it went rather well overall. Good way to end 2016!

Impressive! RAR's score doesn't seem too far away now...

I like the death in 1-2 :P

lol!

Thanks Shepardus, yeah, it's pretty wild to think that I'm even approaching 200 mil at this point, let alone RAR's score. I still have plenty of room for improvement, which will be fun to do! :D

If you beat my score, it'll have taken someone over 7 years to finally beat me. Crazy.

I have no plans of ever picking up the game and going for a higher score again. I've been pretty much retired from shmups for over 7 years since I set the high score in Progear.

Keep up the good work.
