Here's the thing. From a fresh new save file, the target here is to collect as many challenges as possible on one single segment and beating the game.  This isn't a Time Attack, but a Challenge Attack, so I can take all the time in the world to gain more challenges, as long as it is under an hour.

You can still download the video of this amazing achievement down here:

I did this one without even thinking straight and on one attempt (on a night in November 12th).
The results were alright, but after I beat it, I realized I didn't plan things good enough.

If I can just get more than 60% in one shot, then I'll be happy. ^^

I'm surprised that I didn't post in this topic earlier. Good show Vixy! Any plans on pushing further than 64 percent though?

interesting run. well done, and it was still done really quick.

What happens in Vegas stays on Youtube. I also stream on Twitch from time to time.

Nyuuu, I did get 60% single-segment this time, but I failed by buying the Hairstyle Book and died once. :'(

Video will show up in a moment. After that, I will try it one more time without death (some other day).
I will get 62% next time, unless you can help me plan some more achievements to beat. o.o

Posted on: November 23, 2008, 01:05:58
You can now download the 60% version.
Next update should be 62% or more, then there's no more updates after that.
Why? Because I wanna go back to normal speed runs. ^^

If you still plan on doing this again Vixy, perhaps you could do a test for me (or maybe I'll get Satoryu to do it... gotta love being able to see other players' challenges in the All Clear rankings)...

Bust A Move: Can't miss with the Mega Buster. But it doesn't matter if you miss with a special weapon. Does the Rush Coil/Jet count as a special weapon for the purposes of this challenge as it does in encore?

Well, I'd assume if it works in one, it works with the other. I say this only because it's a known fact that Proto Coil and Proto Jet are different from the actual Proto Buster, and the same may apply here (Rush's buster isn't the same weapon as the Mega Buster despite being virtually identical). I know this is the case in Conservationist, as I tried to do it and Encore on the same file through Rush, and despite not using a drop of weapon energy for Encore, it wouldn't give me the former. That's why I say Conservationist has nothing to do with weapon energy and everything to do with the amount of times you use special weapons. I summoned Rush a lot for Encore, which is free, and didn't actually use him, but the mere act of summoning him apparently counted as a special weapon use.
If I'm right about Bust A Move (that Rush's buster can miss all it wants because, despite being absolutely free and totally identical, it is NOT the same weapon), you may be able to add Encore in on top of that as well... though that looks like it'll be tough to work in.  Splash Woman and Magma Man look okay for Encore (good Mystery Tank usage should guarantee Quick Draw M in WC4), but the other six look a little iffy, and you need two of those.

For Mr. Trigger Happy, you'd need another test, whether hitting the spike balls in the WC1 fight counts as a hit when there's no spike shooter behind them.  If it does, you could get that, Eco Fighter, and Marathon Fight all from the same battle with no risk to Bust A Move.  You could continuously hit the balls for no effect as long as a shooter exists somewhere else, so you could dwindle the boss down to one and leave him to rot for several minutes while you rack up the 500+ Mega Buster shots.  If everything works out, that would upgrade the percentage to 66% for only a little time lost (64% if Encore can't be done).  If summoning Rush is a problem, just run him out of energy first.  The buster part will still work.

It's a thought if you're still interested.  I'm really itching to confirm that Bust A Move theory, but I'm not willing to delete my save file for it.  Mr. Perfect was quite hard to do, after all.

fat chance. i don't really care about completing the challenges.

though if you want to see what challenges i have gotten, i should still be on the All Clear Top 10.

How do you think I got the idea to heckle you about it? ;) Besides, Vixy is the one I'm asking anyway because she's the only one who would have a reason to care.  Kind of a longshot either way though since her interest appears to have waned and I knew there was a good chance you didn't care at all, but the only other way I can get an answer is to put the Rush Buster idea in my guide as a fact and see if I get any angry e-mails about it.  Unethical, yes, but in video game experiments, my moral compass is rather broken, and I have all the reason in the world to think I'm right anyway. 8)

I'd love to keep my "No Coffee Break" challenge for the run, and fix my "Invincible" one.
That way, I show that I have endured through all the stages without dying and without tanks.

Oh, I haven't given up on this "challenge" run yet. I'm going back to it for sure.
I should make a test run first and see if Rush Buster doesn't add to the miss counter.
Otherwise, I have more than enough reason to use Laser Trident for Encore.

Thank you all for the support. ^^

If I'm right about Bust A Move (that Rush's buster can miss all it wants because, despite being absolutely free and totally identical, it is NOT the same weapon), you may be able to add Encore in on top of that as well... though that looks like it'll be tough to work in.

Master ZED... Mission Failed...

I only used Rush Buster and the special weapons. I never used Rock Buster at all.
But Rush Buster still seem to count when you attempt Bust A Move.

Wily Stage 4 and Results...

My original idea was to fight the robot masters in Wily Castle without a helmet so I can get Headbanging.
I was trying to get Headbanging on the last run, and I have to see if I can manage to do it on a new test run.

The first to give me a test result will be mentioned in the credits, for however much motivation that gives anyone.

I guess that would be me then. '>.>

Crud... it didn't occur to me that 0 shots might be the same as 0% accuracy until you said that.  You never missed, sure, but you never hit either.  It's unfortunate that the game doesn't clarify that you have to use the Rock Buster at some point.  Logically if you never used it, you never missed with it either, and that's all it appears to ask of you.  Then again, Conservationist specifies weapon energy and not the amount of times special weapons are used, and using Rush Coil just for the free buster managed to ruin that without a drop of energy lost.  I've rewritten my description as a result.  I'd be rather surprised if the failure didn't stem from that.  What sucks is that if accuracy is what it's going for, one lone hit would have been enough to get Bust A Move. :(

I can't very well ask you to do the test again because of my own blunder though, so I apologize for wasting your time and thank you for what you were able to provide.  I've also mentioned you in the credits anyway because the fact that the Mega Buster must be used is new and relevant no matter the inconclusiveness of the test. :)

Oh don't worry. I can play it again. I won't be restarting my system data just yet, so there's plenty of time. ^^
