Samurai Spirits IV: NGFL High Score Challenge
Finally it's time for another Samurai spirits HSC, we've reached part 4 in the saga. Also remember to join the GOTW discussion, see link below. Good luck with the scores...

Samurai Spirits IV GAME OF THE WEEK discussion thread:


The rules:

* Play whichever version you like: NEO GEO MVS / NEO GEO AES / NEO GEO CD / EMULATOR

* Difficulty: MVS - level 4 / AES - MVS setting

* Lives: Default setting

* Credits: 1

* Multiple runs as training is of course allowed. Also if you manage to surpass your previous score then just post it and I'll update the first post.

* No cheating with any kind of UNI-BIOS is allowed.

* Miss-using bugs or glitches in games in order to boost you score isn't allowed and if discovered will lead to disqualification of your score.

* No cheating in Emulators such as autofire, Pausing or infinite lives are allowed
(or any other effect you can use in emulators to make the game easier, score higher etc)

* Photographic proof is not needed as I believe that we are all honorable people. If you like though you can attach a photo or a mini-clip with your highscore.

* State which platform you played this game on.

* The goal: Highest score possible.

* How to present your highscore to make my work a lot easier, EXAMPLE:

User nickname: Score: , Character: , End level: , Difficulty level: ...and other facts

There will be no closing dates for the different HSC threads. They will always be there ready to accept new challengers. But I will start to award the winner a medal as soon as scores are posted. And as I said the challenge will always be there.

If you have ANY questions about this NGFL Highscore Challenge, don't hesitate to contakt Me (priest) who's the mod. for this thing...

I tried once but couldn't beat Zankuro, since SS IV has time based score you should beat the game. And now i'm busy with playing KOF XIII. :$ But i will try again.

Welcome! Scoreboard and medals are updated.

Any more takers...?

Wow, there aren't that many people that tried the SSIV challenge:(.

Here's my result after a few days of attempts:

Player: freebie, Score: 09:11:80, Character: Tam Tam, Style: Slash, Played on: Finalburn Alpha, Difficulty level: MVS/4

I believe I can do a better result Smile (Galford beat me one round). So there is room for improvement.


A little bit of improvement Smile. Here's the result:

Player: freebie, Score: 08:01:25, Character: Tam Tam, Style: Slash, Played on: Finalburn Alpha, Difficulty level: MVS/4

Some fights could've went faster, but overall I'm glad with what I got. I think, something like 7 min. finish is plausible and within my realm of possibility.

Great time Freebie. Nice to see someone else taking part in the high score challenges. Perhaps people didn't enter this challenge because you have to be able to 1CC the game to take part.
Thanks merlin. As one of my favourite fighting games (in a very specific way), I never thought I would have a chance in a HSC. I remember long ago, before I even had connection to internet, I played the game just out of pure joy/aesthetic/atmospheric feel that it creats. Back then I never actually got the chance to reach to the castle/Amakusa (who I never guessed is actually a man) Grin. Didn't even know about character moves and that game had combos etc. I just mashed buttons and something cooled happened Grin. Overall I played with Ukyo (favourite character to this day) and got to learn some of his moves by accident, but still the game was hard as hell.

Oh well I got carried away Smile, recently I even have/ing the chance to play online on Supercade against other people (on GGPO never had luck to meet someone). Learned little bit about the game, watched some (supposedly) pro games and so on. That borught me back here as a desire to try my abilities appeared Smile.

You are right, maybe because you have to finish the game to get the chance to input your three letters is the reason not many people tried. But I don't think that should be an obstacle, what stops you from posting just your time and last battle you fought for example?

Besides that, I believed that game is more "famous" or at least, I suggested more people like it or would've tried HSG. I know that SS2 on more peoples tops amognst the series, but for some reason I thought SS4 would come right after, and that would bring more attention. Well wrong suggestion/expectation Smile.

I'm remembering Garou MotW as well, maybe I can get the chance to improve my old reulst there Smile.
It is a fantastic game and still my favourite Neo Geo fighter. Unlike you however I'm not very good at the game but in the future I will put a lot more effort into getting better like you have done. I have never even cleared the game on one coin so I think it's impressive that you can do that.
Freebie: Welcome to this HSC, sorry about my lacking ability to update as of lately...'Life sometimes happens' Smile

Scoreboard is updated.

Very kind of you merlin Smile. I wouldn't say I'm that good, but it is nice to be at least familiar/knowledgeable with the game. Best time I've seen/watched was 5 min. something, and I'm sure there are others that are better than even this Grin.

priest thanks, but second place Grin?
Ummmm...Yea I was a bit sleepy yesterday while I was updating, but that´s hardly an excuse. So sorry, I have corrected the scoreboard now Flowers
