Iji:

I want Kat's glasses!
Okay, thanks. IIRC the trope page currently follows the "two different weapons" hypothesis, but I'd take either one.
They Called Me Mad!! I decided to show them all; but when I looked on my works, oh mighty, I despaired: for it made me realize they were right.

Heh. Let's see how Maximum Charge General Tor vs. Massacre and plenty of Velocitor and Devastator go. Near 50 ammo for each, lv. 2 attack (kill-less run, what's the point of attack). This also lags A LOT, especially when using the BG attacks.

Also, why is there a gap between the Velocitor and Massacre? The former is no.16, the latter 18.

[up]Probably the banana gun. Very ammo-inefficient, but can reach some targets other weapons can't.

I do wonder how I got faster on my zerokill run.
2:23.36 "kill everything",
1:57.00 "kill nothing".
also, how exactly do I get to Sector Z, as you can't amass enough Tasen points to get a rocket launcher in Sector 1. (comment: never mind, I forgot they start at lv.1 not lv.0; though how you get in on Hard or above is a mystery) Reply to [down]: I got the good ending (had to really to get 0 kills) so no

Killing takes time. A no-kill run involves a lot of running. Especially if you play it sincere, rather than reflector-happy.

Also, was there any difference in how much exploration you did?

[up][up]Getting toSection Z:nothing says it has to be your rocket launcher if someone nearby has one instead.

hm, why does it fail to get past the loading screen when I try to run exe in GM5.3a, it spits out something about "registered version" and a bunch of errors, then essentially crashes to rom_main.
also, [up] somewhere, there's no room sectory or sector10 in the gmk - it skips from sector9 to sector11 (Krotera fight) - so Sector Y must be just built off Sector 1.

Heh. Maximum Charge Sudden Death Sector General Tor vs Sudden Death Iji + Velocithor. It comes down to "who can do damage first".

[up] If you mean the .gmd, you need the registered GM 5.3A to compile it. And yes, Sector Y and Sector 1 are the same room.

So, I've been curious. Is there a specific reason why Iji's so tall? I mean, even for men 190 cm is generally not that common, at least as far as I know. Is it just so, to make the sprite scale properly, or maybe for some other reason? By the way, I've been thinking about how does she appear in comparison to other humans, but I haven't come at anything conclusive whether this is a family thing or not.

Maybe it was to make certain enemies seem terrifying in hindsight, while not making them hilariously huge. Iji's huge, but that Annihilator is still five times her size!

Yes, it was to let the enemies be big by human standards without Iji being visually smaller than everyone. Also, her apperance was partially based on a friend I had in school who was around 185 cm.

Ulti: while you're here, what's the requirement for getting a new sector to work? I'm trying to make a Sector 0, but it gets stuck on the "loading, please wait" screen.
(I do have registered Game Maker 5.3a now)

also, please explain why outfit Iji has seperate blacked out sprites than normal Iji

IRC room, I have.

There are many, many requirements for getting a new Sector to work. I haven't touched the code in ages, so I can't help you with the specifics, sorry. Start by looking through the scripts belonging to anything named "sabot" (the world controller objects).

Alternate outfit Iji has a different silhouette, hence even her blacked-out sprites are replaced.

Hmm, I should probably install this game again and start over now that I have new computer and I didn't take my old save with me... Maybe this time I'll be able to get all secrets on first run, I mean if I remember right, its impossible to get all secrets on pacifist run right?

You can't get every poster, but everything else is fair game. Except maybe the banana gun. I generally just don't even try to bother with that thing.

^^Eh, I want to have one play through where I get everything so it might as well be "Kill everything" playthrough leaving me to play all rest of playthroughs pacifist way

Ah, but "kill everything" plays also make you miss things, most notably the super weapon which you can only get if you were a pacifist the whole game. I forget its name.

Basically, it's impossible to experience EVERYTHING in this game first time 'round.

Scrambler's not too hard. So long as you know the trick to the last room anyway.

@Sabbo: I know, but its not like I can kill Yukabacera(or whatever his name was) on 0 kill playthrough tongue

Anyhoo, so TVT says that original reason why Remar had only three survivors in 1.3 being female was that Adam And Eve Plot was impossibly, but umm... There is no need to prevent that since without cloning or genetic engineering or anything, two three people is way too small amount since generation two would be forced to retort to incest to continue population meaning that they would be doomed off anyway <_< Or was it just to prevent implications of it?

Exactly, they don't, I only pointed that out as hypothetical only way to avoid incest with Adam and Eve plot and Tasen are sterilized anyway, aren't they?

I'm just confused about why TVT page claims that as the original reason when those are the facts <_< Or was sterilization thing added later?

i always had the headcanon that Tasen could breed with Humans for some reason, since they're pretty humanoid themselves

Eh, I know that tasen and komato are apparently really mammals, but I always liked them more as scaly since they look pretty reptilian to me <_< And as everyone knows, reptiles are superior to mammals, especially when you ask me :P

(Also, that wouldn't make sense since Tasen and Humans aren't same species and even if they were both primates, billions of years of evolution on separate planets would make breeding impossible)
