Okay, about my 3rd run through (not counting one failed attempt at HardCORPS [img]/forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img] )

Skill: 83.42
Challenge: 50.08
And here's my title:


I think the "playing at work" thing comes from pausing so frequently to look at my stats [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Towards the end it was alternating between Head Hunting and Sharp Shooting, but I'm still not quite sure which is better...

On my new run I'm obsessing big-time about accuracy on the Magnum. At the start of Trainyard, here's my current title:

Dexterous, scope-eyed Captain John Blade: Magnum Master who never needs a scope.

Man, how many different variations does this thing have! [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

All the way *left* -- as in, the easiest setting and quickest to help? really?

Just wondering cos I'm amazed to see a Challenge level of 80.89 if you've got those sliders to the left. Unless perhaps the way it works is different from what I've been thinking.

Intriguing...

Err right rather. The difficulty slider was all the way right, the Challenge slider was all the way left.


EDIT:

Okay I can't edit the original. But it should read:



Difficulty slider was all the way to the right, Challenge slider was set to "Quickly" all the way left.

Sorry for any confusion. I'll need to try HardCorps mode next.

Sweet. Thanks for clarifying, I was just like... wha..? [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] cos such high challenge ratings are so rare; that's the 2nd highest I've ever seen!

I think I will try the quick adjusts next run thru [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

whew! After a very gruely intense challenge i finally was able to beat HardCorps mode with the default setting. Sadly, when I tried to take a screenshot of my stats it did not show on my folder when i pressed F5 but i did manage to save the stats and upload them. I got around 3000 hardcorps score. Has anyone else beaten hardcorps mode besides ertertwert?

I tried the F5 screenshot too, unfortunately, it didn't save, so I had to go back in and use the old standby of PrntScrn.
I exited the game, opened Irfanview and pasted it, cropped it and uploaded it.

I haven't even had a chance to play since last Monday. Hopefully I'll get in some Hardcorps time sometime before I go back to work Weds,

Okay, just finished another playthrough... probably my sixth. Figured I would post my stats this time.

Accomplished, Mind blowing, Death dealing Lieutenant John Blade: Tank

Skill: 90.44
Challenge: 40.25
Instantaneous Challenge: 42.81

Man is that a big difference. Here are my stats before the patch...

Accomplished, Wicked, Death dealing Major John Blade: Tank for hire

Skill: 90.25
Challenge: 61.66
Instantaneous Challenge: 98.35

Hi, just completed my first run through of the game (only got it today!). I had both sliders set over to the right. At the end my title was:

Death Walking, Big Spending Sublime John Blade: Combatant For Hire.

However my favourite title that I had at one point about halfway through was:

Sharp Shooting, Speed Killing Badass John Blade: Warrior For Hire

So I put that one in my sig [img]/forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Next run through will have to be in Hardcorps mode... though I think that will prove to be very tough!

Both the Skill and Challenge ratings were 75 (to the nearest integer).

I'm wondering whether the "challenge" rating is how difficult the system thinks you are finding the game to be? Mine was lower when I was finding things easier and doing better, but it went up when things got tough and I started to die more. So perhaps it is best to have a low challenge value?

Great game by the way!

Pretty damn proud of myself, first atempt at HardCORPs mode. Made it right before the boss fight, but went after the last secret... and I messed up there. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Also did it in about 2 hours thirty minutes.

Thanks guys.

I know I can do it, and with that last secret. But when I ported in I kindof stood there a bit to long. Those turrents tore me up and then I was SOL.

For those people who have been playing on HardCORPS: do you also have the other difficulty sliders over to the right? I had one attempt at HardCORPS so far (with the sliders to the right) and died in the trainyard with a score of about 1500 I think.
