Scoring system


"Grazing" is the act of having a bullet pass near one's hitbox. The graze counter will increase at a slow rate for as long as the player remains near the bullet. If one continues to graze a bullet for a short time, the bullet will release a graze item, which adds 5 graze to the counter.

Chapter Finish Bonus

The Chapter Finish bonus is awarded whenever the player passes a waypoint. The player's graze and the proportion of enemies defeated in the chapter are totalled.

Replay and verification movie

feos: After finally having figured out everything, I can accept this submission, as it syncs on a (super recent) hourglass release. It's a post-game completion category, beating the hardest level on hardest difficulty. The verification movie successfully created a save game which this run syncs from. After the stage is beaten, the movie creates an internal replay file and goes to the main menu. All that has been verified.

The game is quite freakish to get to sync, but I still dumped avi (menu and main footage in different segments, with a bit of overlap), so it's good to accept technically. On VMs it's acting strangely, but my real XP installation happened to be compatible with these timings.

Even though it's a movie that looks more impressive than average Moons, I'll leave starring it for later, when people are able to properly watch and enjoy it.

fsvgm777: feos is going to provide me the AVI dumps. Once I have them, I will start encoding it.
