With the final category that Zil held gone, I now hold every single record in the game! This is the next big milestone my journey has lead me, after nearly 6 years. The Crazy Man has plotted his revenge to come to fruition some time in the future, but I will be ready for the attack. For now, 3 billion total score is the next big achievement that will keep me going...

I got a 73m PB on the same day that I decided to save, as it has my longest Round 1 against Yumemi ever (20:57). Sadly I died in the end but a clear would've allowed for 81m or higher with that run.

This run can only be rivaled by the Chiyuri run. All the stars aligned, completely outlandish luck, this category is dead.....

Coming back from my longest break so far, to breach the 100m barrier on Hard! I could get even 110m probably if you go really hard on Yumemi with superb luck, but my work on this game is about done, so probably a no.

KirbyComment - 106,552,090 - C - AutofireOff - Screenshot - Video

I had the intention to reset this run because of how bad the early-game was going. After Stage 7 I was almost 9m behind, but the endgame went so well I went to 2m behind + 1 life ahead after Chiyuri and almost 10m ahead from the clear! My first round Chiyuri clear is my best ever on Hard too!

After my Lunatic 1cc, I've gotten interested in PoDD scoring. After scouring the Internet for all the information I could find on game mechanics and scoring strats (admittedly, 99% of which came from KirbyComment or Zil, both of this forum), I've started trying Normal score runs and a few runs on other difficulties. My current goal is Normal 50m Mima/Chiyuri, although I'm currently maining Chiyuri. Here's what I have so far! (Also, please excuse the bad cropping on the images - you can see the emulator window outline).

Easy - Chiyuri
Christian Azinn - 28,847,620 - C - AutofireOff - Screenshot

Current Easy PB. Wasn't going so hot until Yumemi suddenly died out of nowhere on Round 1, giving an 11m clear bonus. Kind of mixed on this one; I could've milked Round 1 longer if I'd paid attention and stalled accordingly, but I was also on last hit, so I'll take it. Pretty proud of this score, I don't do Easy much.

Normal - Chiyuri
Christian Azinn - 40,189,060 - C - AutofireOff - Screenshot

Current Normal PB. The whole run went fairly well, although Yumemi Round 1 was shorter than I'd have liked it. Regardless, a 6m clear bonus from Round 2 kicked it up to just over 40m, my previous goal. Next is 50m, I guess!

Normal - Mima
Christian Azinn - 38,929,850 - C - AutofireOff - Screenshot

My Mima PB, just shy of my Chiyuri PB. I can say Mima feels easier to use, especially with how quickly her charge shot kills bosses, but I prefer Chiyuri's ability to skyrocket the spell points pretty much whenever she feels like it - I just need to get better at reading the AI's screen.

Normal - Reimu
Christian Azinn - 34,110,720 - C - AutofireOff - Screenshot

I forgot to take a screenshot of the score screen, so here's a screenshot of my high score page. There it is on line 5. For one of the early hit shots, she took a surprising amount of time to kill Yumemi, I wasn't even able to get her on round 1. I don't really like her charge shot, either.

Normal - Kana
Christian Azinn - 34,051,330 - C - AutofireOff - Screenshot

Same issue as Reimu, but the charge shot deals a fair bit of damage if you can place it on top of a boss, and all her offense is hot garbage. With a Level 2 spell that barely spawns any reflectable pellets, the most pathetic EXs in the game, and a decidedly meh boss, I didn't expect this high a score.

Normal - Rikako
Christian Azinn - 29,182,840 - C - AutofireOff - Screenshot

Again, forgot to screenshot the score screen so here's the high score board. Having done my Lunatic 1cc with her, I thought Rikako would be comfy to use; turns out I still can't get used to the slow charge speed for Level 2s, and they barely spawn any pellets anyway. Not particularly great for scoring, it seems.

Normal - Kotohime
Christian Azinn - 29,153,340 - C - AutofireOff - Screenshot

And again! No screenshot, here's the high score screen. I think there's a lot of potential with Kotohime, but it'll take a while to get used to timing the Level 2 so it gets reflected as well as possible. It's not called a "sh*tstorm" for nothing, after all.

Normal - Marisa
Christian Azinn - 29,107,210 - C - AutofireOff - Screenshot

What is it with me and 29.1xx million scores? Anyway, Marisa's interesting to use, the small spread but instant piercing of her charge attack is unique. Her Level 2 spawns a bunch of pellets but I found myself hard pressed to find a situation in which the AI could actually reflect any of it.

I should try the other shots soon, especially Yumemi. I've done a few Hard/Lunatic score attempts, so I might as well submit them here.

Hard - Chiyuri
Christian Azinn - 62,815,700 - C - AutofireOff - Screenshot

This is probably my proudest run of any I'm submitting. Despite a slow Stage 1-6, and Kotohime being mean to me, a stellar Chiyuri Round 1 kill and my longest, highest scoring Yumemi Round 1 on any difficulty so far added up to produce this absolute beauty of a score. I doubt I'll be able to match this anytime soon, and I don't plan on scoring Hard seriously for a while anyway.

Lunatic - Chiyuri
Christian Azinn - 65,313,220 - 9 - AutofireOff - Screenshot

HooOooooOOOooooly **** what on EARTH was that run?! My absolute first time trying Lunatic scoring (that is, the first run I didn't reset before Stage 5) I thought I was done for after Reimu and Marisa ate my lives like candy, but through ten runs' worth of dumb luck on Kotohime and Chiyuri, I was able to clear both of them by the skin of my teeth. After that, I proceeded to die within the first minute of the Yumemi fight, but the spell points and clear bonuses from Stages 7 and 8 added up to make this excellent (?) run. After this, I'm definitely staying away from Lunatic scoring for a while - I need to git gud (and probably not play Chiyuri, lol). Screenshot is of high score screen because it was a game over.

Lunatic - Rikako
Christian Azinn - 44,464,890 - C - AutofireOff - Screenshot

My Lunatic 1cc. Not much else to say, I wasn't really using scoring strats (and I hadn't even considered scoring at the time) but I might as well submit it. Early miss to round 6 Mima, then a miss to Chiyuri and an incredibly close Round 3 kill on Yumemi. Again, high score screen screenshot. I do find it quite funny, though, that even had my Chiyuri run game overed to Stage 8, it would still have beaten this run in score.

Lunatic - Reimu
Christian Azinn - 32,250,760 - 8 - AutofireOff - Screenshot

Again, might as well submit this, and again, high score screen screenshot. I remember this run clearly, though: a miraculous no-miss pace into Chiyuri and then an enormous trainwreck to her. Ah, well, it is what it is.

I've started streaming on Twitch so hopefully I'll have videos for my future PBs to submit (as long as this cruddy laptop can handle OBS and an emulator simultaneously). Until then, that's all, and I can only marvel at how Kirby gets his ~70m Normal runs.

Hey hello Azinn! Nice to see somebody show up on this forum to share some scores. I see you're the same person who recently followed me on Twitch. I'm not sure if you're aware of this page as you were scouring for information? This page contains all of the subtle and miniscule details regarding PoDD. This game is incredibly deep and more things continue to be figured out, both by players and the ReC98 reverse engineering efforts. In any case, this might also be an interesting read for anybody else looking around on this page.

Now for what I initially came here for...

Hard - Marisa
KirbyComment - 93,716,770 - C - AutofireOff - Screenshot - Video

Incredible progress has been made in my time PBs surviving the first round of Yumemi on Hard. My PB I think was lying around 10 minutes (I never documented this specific round on Hard). I improved this to 12 minutes, 13:23 and now 16:23 with this run! Completely outlandish! Originally I was trying to do a route where I forced myself to win the first round of Yumemi by getting there with no lives left. I thought this might make PBing more consistent, however I was having some trouble. This run I switched to a route where I basically just replace the life on Stage 7 to Stage 9, so I have a spare life. The first round I ended up getting, would've given me around the same score had I won this round, compared to what I ended up getting. Let this be an indicator how incredibly difficult it is to make winning the first round worth it score-wise on Hard. With 16 minutes I was teetering on the edge of winning Round 1 being worth more, or less. The only reason I was even trying to win the first round on Hard, is because I can survive the longest with Marisa. If anybody has seen how I played with Ellen for example, there is just no chance.

It also seems my recent Ellen score was skipped in the scoreboard update.
