Shock Troopers: NGFL High Score Challenge
skytraveler
Thanks! That was Jungle Route with no transfers, by the way. Gonna have to work on LW a bit. I'd have thought Team Battle would be the stiffer line-up as I think a group is generally the more effective option.

Just now on MAME played with Big Mama on the jungle route until death on Stage 5 with 8,582,400 points.

Tip: When you are armed with only a normal machinegun keep tapping the A button instead of holding it down to get fast firepower equivalent to the Heavy Machinegun. Note that your position will still change with direction keys.

I've just realized there is a problem with this challenge. There are two different versions of the game and no-one who took part said which version they played. Some info from BBH's Shock Troopers page:

http://bbh.marpir...cktherapy/

Version 1
Lonly Wolf - One life, 128 life points 
Team Mode - All three characters share one life bar, 128 life points 
Medal rankings are shown before the level, and life-up bonuses are awarded

Version 2
Lonly Wolf - Three lives, 64 life points each
Team Mode - Each character has their own individual life bar, 64 life points 
Medal rankings are not shown, no life bonuses between levels are given

Which version is better? It's pretty debatable. I think the game is easier on Version 1, being able to take double the damage lets you play pretty sloppy, plus you usually get life back after every level. On Version 2, three or four hits will kill most characters so you have to be careful.


Another issue is that having blood switched on or off makes a difference to scoring. BBH wrote about it in the description of his Shock Troopers playthrough on youtube:

This score was done with the "Blood" softdip turned on, which is the default for US/Japan bios. On a Euro bios, the default setting for Blood is off. This actually makes a huge difference in terms of scoring potential. (I have gotten 37.6 million with the Blood setting turned off, but I do not feel this score to be valid because it is not the true default setting IMO)


So it seems it's possible to get a significantly higher score with the Euro BIOS.

I switched to rom set 2 and team mode and finally was able to get a 1CC which I'm very happy about. I can't make a video at the moment so I've uploaded the emulator input file

Team Mode (rom set 2 / Japan region default settings)

I had another try at 'Lonly' Wolf mode using Southern Cross. I think the mountain route is the easiest route although the jungle route is definitely better for scoring.

Merlin: Do you have any ideas as to how I should change the scoreboards, or do you want another scoreboard added.

Awaiting yours or anyone elses answer before updating the scoreboards...

Priest I think having separate scoreboards would be best just like in the Magician Lord challenge. We would of course end up with the same situation as in the Neo Drift Out challenge with quite a few 'unidentified' scores. As for the Euro bios blood scoring issue I mentioned maybe it would be a good idea to add a rule saying if people play using a Euro bios they have to switch the blood on?
