Done! Also thanks to you who was the first to tell how to get 4k in the "Goal" (don't know why I didn't try that before). :D

I don't think I'll continue playing this game, but really a good pick TRB!


So I can take some credit for the 500k+ score you just posted? :wink:

Yes no-one seems to be giving anything away, haha. Good game choice!

As far as I can tell you are invincible when in the air (jumping). This is especially useful for the bosses that move around a lot and very quickly, if they come close to you, you can just jump right through them with good timing.

Another great tactic is using the fairies to your advantage since they kill things just like your bullets do. Groups of cannons (Im thinking fire stages) with a crystal in the middle become much easier if you jump right into the middle, the fairy will spin around and cause havoc. Much easier than shooting them, IMO.

I probably wont have another attempt at this anyway. Maybe one day in the future

Agodzilla and RichyS both seem to have used the Magical Crystals (World, 91/12/10) (mgcrysto) romset instead of the correct Magical Crystals (World, 92/01/10) (mgcrystl) romset.

I see,now my last replay should be ok with correct romset,someone can confirm please?

Go deep inside the game fellow,if the WR is a million then you are *only* half away the "target" :)

Ah well, 47th place now and next to no time to improve.
Oh well ... Hopefully I can at least survive the second round :).

Cicca's replay doesn't playback. It desyncs on stage 1-3 and only plays back to 68,842. Mahlemiut tried it as well and gets the same thing. Cicca, you need to make sure you have nvram disabled when recording if you are going to use wolf143.

Don't worry. It's because if you click "LOADS" in the header, it will show only until 20th placed in the game (per_game=20). If you click in "UP", the 1000th placed will be shown, if it's one of the last 50 submissions. Anyway, your score may be submitted.

http://replay.marpirc.net/index.cgi?tua ... score=with

Hmmm... I know I can change other filters after that. ***PL*** is the only one that have permissions to change these links? In my opinion, per_game would change to 100 or higher, per_table may have the same value. And I would like to know the "attrib" to the screenshot value (sometimes I prefer 0).

Note: R1 time remaining is about 18 hours. Good luck!

I posted a score a few hours ago, saw it, but now it's gone. I figure I must have done something wrong with my recording or something? I don't know... If anyone has any idea and can let me know what it is and what I can do fix it, it would be greatly appreciated. I've got a better score already, and think I may even improve (hopefully!) some more before tomorrow evening. I'd love to get it ironed out so I can start putting up some decent scores is what I'm trying to say. :) This probably wasn't the best time for my first marp submission ever I guess.. :lol: but hey you have to start somewhere, right?.

giv, your score of 268,083 still shows up and has been confirmed.

How are you looking at scores that makes you think it is gone? Depending on how you are doing your search you may only be seeing the top X scores which doesn't include your score. You may need to change the "worst position to show" in the search criteria to a larger number (e.g. 999) and rerun the search to see your score. Your score is currently in 21st place for K9.
