Thank you for playing Prales!

You should be okay if you got the game cleared Prales, but a quick note in case anyone missed the edits:

I had to fix a bunch more stuff folks discovered while I was sleeping. If you aren't running R4 be sure to redownload again. If unsure you can check from the Main Menu.

Came in to check the thread today and um, yeah, holy Black Heart abuse Batman :lol:

I ain't even mad, if you found that and managed to keep on playing for a goddamn hour+ then bravo. But you can bet your ass that'll be getting patched in the future though so nobody ever has to suffer that again.

I don't want to invalidate scores unless absolutely necessary but I do want other players to keep interest in this competition without being limited to "milk Black Heart for top scores". To keep the competition interesting then, I am adding Conquest Mode listings. 5-C and EX-6 will not be included for obvious reasons, and hopefully if there is any other problems with bosses like this we'll find out here but I don't expect any.

I also don't have much in the way of prize giving unfortunately but I will also be adding ALL players to the credits listings when they get made, with the #1 spots being given the title of "Absolute Madman" (or a name of your choice).

Yeah, scoring the BLACK HEART fight takes a while in R4.

I like the addition of the chain multiplier; it helps make chains worth more than a few 100k medals. :P

Here's my submission for the high score table:

EMRA & 109,752,499 & Raiden mk-II & STAGE EX-1 CONQUEST MODE
Image
Video here

This stage has one of the most difficult chaining opportunities. It is possible to chain most of the stage and also the boss phases. Since I was using a slow ship, I focused on chains instead of medaling. If I had a faster ship, I would have been able to keep my 100k medals, and my high score would have been 15 to 20 million points higher.

Go here for video

This one took me 63 tries because of the 74-chain at the end is extremely difficult to get.

Bit late in calling it, but that's a wrap!

I'm declaring the first place winner 'prales' the Absolute Madman and winner of this competition!

For your perseverance and absolute breakage of the current public build of the game, your name has been written in history. And by history I mean there's going to be a course in the upcoming Path Mode named after you, fellow shmupper.

For everyone else who participated, thank you for your support and your scores. I know there were some who were intimidated by the high requirements for this competition; fear not, there will be other opportunities. Ed and I will be continuing to make this game as polished as it deserves to be in the coming months/years/however long it takes and we couldn't do it without the interest and support of everyone involved.
