This is the new thread for ADK's 1996 versus stg, Twinkle Star Sprites. Also included is SNK Playmore's 2003 PS2 sequel Twinkle Star Sprites: La Petite Princesse. Old thread

No continues, all defaults. State which game/mode you're playing.

Getting consecutive "perfect" bonuses yields additional points each time. From what I've observed, the order goes like:

1,000>2,000>3,000>5,000>7,000>10,000>15,000>20,000>1>30,000>1? (might be zero sometimes)>30,004>2,304

And then it seems every one gives 2,304 thereafter, meaning it would be wise to reset them. I'm not 100% sure about these, but the 1 happens consistently.

The old thread hadn't been updated since 2006 so I've started a new one. All scores that were posted over the years have now been added. I'll be adding my own score as soon as I can beat Memory :)

I'll have to try some of the other characters in character mode, they seem to be much more lucrative

I think this is about as high as I can go, I just can't score many points in the early rounds.

Good scores from Seahawk and shadowbringer, on the update now.

EDIT: I'm removing the Enhasa and NANA scores from the table until further notice, I just noticed those scores have continue markers. EDIT 2: So does the shadowbringer character mode score. If someone can give me a legitimate reason why these scores don't end in 0 then I'll put them back.

Twinkle Star Sprites: La Petite Princess

Mero - 1,737,810 - Load Ran - 25 - 4

Image

I haven't got a clue how I scored as high as this. 1.4 million of this score comes from level 4. All I know is that it was a really long fight (that I eventually lost) and I collected lots of items and killed lots of death attacks. I find it hard to believe that I scored 1.4m just by chaining alone :? .

EDIT: Can someone with lagless MAME please watch shadowbringer's character mode run and tell me how he ends up with a 1 at the end of his score? I'd watch it myself but I don't have a computer >_>.

If it turns out there's a legitimate explanation for it (and there may well be) then I'll reinstate the scores that I've removed. On reflection I think it must be more than just coincidence that 3 players have posted "continued" scores, especially as I know that enhasa and shadowbringer are both very good players.

I don't know how to reproduce the bug (it occurs right at the first stage, in my Memory playthrough), I've gotten the last score digit to 5 once (on the first stage iirc), this particular input file was made on wolfmame, but I don't know why, wolfmame couldn't play it anymore (the game gives a Memory Card Error message during boot); maybe I've replaced the TSS rom (and the backup rom also doesn't allow me to play the input file).

Thank you for the compliment, but honestly there's a long way for me to get to Enhasa's (among other skilled TSS players) power level :p

Great score mero! Congratulations.
1.4 million in only one stage? That's pretty amazing

Yeah, looks like it's a bug, I also noticed in the old thread that Gemant says that the world record for this game ends in a 9, which pretty much confirms it. I'll reinstate the scores that I removed immediately. :)

Yeah, if I knew how it happened then I could try to do it again and score even higher. Initially I thought that because I collected loads of $ items that maybe in this game the value maxes out at 100k instead of 10k like in the original, but I did a few more runs trying to collect lots of $ items and dragging fights out for a long time but it didn't work. The fact that the game only lets you see your score between levels and at the end is utterly stupid, I just don't know where those points were coming from, or even how much the $ items are worth. I severely doubt that it was just by chaining alone, even though it was long fight.

Twinkle Star Sprites: La Petite Princesse

Mero - 12,211,330 - Friesia - 18 - 6

Image

I decided to take another shot at pulling off a big score on TSS:LPP and came up with this. :o

As before, the vast bulk of this score comes from one level (about 11.5 million from level 5). I chose Friesia because her extra attack is crap, to give me a better chance of dragging the fights out as long as I could. On level 5 of this run I managed to do just as I'd done my 1.7m run, drag the fight out for ages,collect all the "$" items and kill all the death attacks.

I'd been hoping just for something better than the 1.7m, I couldn't believe it when I saw I'd got 12 million.

All I can think of is that there must be some sort of multiplier connected to killing the death attacks, even if the "$" items max out at 100k there's no way I could have scored this high with them.

I wish this game would let you see your score during the game :(

Here's my score for Giga Wing - sorry, I mean Twinkle Star Sprites: La Petite Princess

Mero - 1,112,315,200 - Friesia - 16 - 6

Image

According to the score counter you see between levels the game should counter stop at 99.9r million, but as you can see the high score table has 2 more digits (with room for one more O_0).

If anyone can shed any light on how I've ended up with 1.1 billion then I'd love to hear from you :)

Just so I know before I submit my score and Wolf replay (I have one ready to upload), is there a specific regional version to use for the NeoGeo TSS? The hi-score and replay I have is from playing the US version.

Got the ISO of this recently, but this scoring system also works for both Story and Character Modes of 'La Petite Princesse'?

Oh, and let me simplify the values mathematically:

10^x, where exponent x is the number of coins collected.

I haven't done it in story mode but I'd assume it's the same.

Guess I'll post this here: in TSS:LPP, in order to display score during a level, press L1 (this is the default button for this command, it can be changed in the Options menu... on the button config menu; the fourth item that a button can be set to, a string of 5 kanji, is the display score option).
