 Post subject: RQ: Progear boss 1 exploit

I was wondering how one successfully exploits the glitch present when fighting the first stage's boss. Here's a video of it, but there really isn't any explanation with it. Does anyone here know?

Thanks!

Not one Progear player here knows how to do this?

Yes, but this is beyond the standard 'stream of jewels' sort of thing.

The boss stays in that pattern way longer than normal. I think it has something to do with suiciding to the pattern when it starts, that then causes the boss to shoot that pattern longer.

I dimly recall long ago that someone said it was apparently a 'banned' exploit.

Can it theoretically go on for ever like that?

That's interesting. The suicide at the beginning of the pattern does seem to have something to do with it. The player also seems to keep shooting while the glitch is taking place; maybe this suggests that it can't go on forever. Anyway, it does seem to be somewhat of a novelty and not that plausible in a true run...I personally wouldn't use it in real play, just wanted to know if anyone had any info on it.

Ex Goku has the same video on youtube somewhere, with an FAQ how to do right this.
As i remember, it is almost impossible to work this out

It's tricky, for certain, but far from impossible. As already mentioned, check out: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ChkcL6C6iV8

You need to get the boss into his final desperation state - and the only way to do this is to suicide into him when he is almost dead, so he actually has negative damage remaining - he will then shoot a continuous stream of bullets aiming continuously and directly at you (if he doesn't start tracking you when you re-appear, you've done it whilst the boss was too strong and lose!).

Clearly you need to leave at least 2 of the guns/sails intact (and almost destroyed, since you have to do the next bit quick), destroy the first in fighter mode (i.e. tapping A or pressing C button) to power up to diamonds (this won't work if you don't get immediately up to diamond ring level as the cascade range of diamond is largest), and then immediately gunner-shot (hold A) the second destroy them into diamonds, without hitting the boss itself (one hit will kill now). Immediately let go of the A button to suck in the diamonds, and the stream begins!

Once the stream starts, it will typically carry on for a little while (circular motions tend to keep it running), so long as you don't run into a bullet before it gets (quickly, I might add) transformed into a diamond!

As a word of advice, if you can't turn the final stream of bullets from the last wave of enemies into a continuous stream of diamonds (see any superplay to see what I mean), you aren't ready to try this! :p

It is also not particularly worth it (especially on the second loop, since losing a life then is likely to cost you a shedload of jewels), except to show off XD

No, for two reasons. One, bosses will self suicide after a predetermined time. But more importantly, the stream usually cuts off after 15 seconds or so!
