There is an error in your Tatter River guide too. The TC headed for the yellow HQ has wrong directions.

I think I've got something of a strategy down for C23. I've got the map finished in 9 days for a score of 412, which is good for 3rd place so far. Power isn't an issue, but technique is the main concern. In order to break Tabitha's base, you need to force joins. I think that is why swifty delayed the capture by a day.

9 days yes. I think Swifty's score may be the max score already because 9 days give IIRC 140 Speed.

9 days is 140 points. I assume he takes the 10 point loss in speed to make up in technique.

Postby -STL- » Fri Jun 08, 2012 2:05 am

442 would be if the AI builds from every base every day. (Well techinically on top of that the AI could build sea units)


C20: 10/447 2 lost (Inf/Mech), 4 built (AA, T-Cop, 2 Fighter), AI had 28 units. So yeah I need to lose/build 1 less or the AI would need to build 1 more XD
I also got a 9 day win, but 450 probably can't be reached in that time.

C25: 12/442 Perfect 12 day win (142 Speed), win by rout. 0 lost/built, AI had 42 units (2 loaded T-Cop destroyed, they made the AI build more, so it wasn't a loss), so exactly the 40 needed for 150 Tech.

C6 8/425 (125 Tech)
1 day faster but 9 days was already 150 Speed.

We could get 133 Tech by not building the Anti-Tank, delaying to 10 days would still get 427 points.

Re: Single-Player Maps High Scores and Strategy

Postby -STL- » Thu Dec 27, 2012 3:43 am

Yes indeed, 9/433 without building the Anti-Tank. That should be the maximum score. The only way we could get higher Tech now would be allowing Black to capture the Base and build from there XD
But I doubt we would get any good power, because we would have to 2HKO every unit he builds there (Tank spam)


On Fragment Islands I got 10/450.
First 450 seemed clearly impossible, I got step by step more power and finally got a 448 while my the best maxing gave 449 with 2% away from 450.
Then I found that we can avoid blue building an AA, which allowed 2 less 2HKOs XD So 450 was very easy finally.


Now I'm working on Jay Island, Swifty and me both have 25 days there.
Here is a 13 day capture on blue (Swifty took 14 in his 25):
I'm not sure what to build for fast Yellow/Black captures yet, but a Day 10 Battleship might be good.


Day 1
Build 2 Bikes

Day 2
Move Bikes east
Build Lander

Day 3
Capture 2 cities with Bikes
Lander 2S3E

Day 4
Finish captures
Build War Tank

Day 5

Day 6

Day 7

Load CO into War Tank, load into Lander, move Lander 5S
Build Gunboat

Day 8
Finish captures
Lander 5S, drop CO War Tank E
Gunboat 2S3E
Build Inf

Day 9
Capture NW City with full HP Bike
Capture other City with 4/5HP Bike
Load Inf into Gunboat, move 6S
Drop War Tank W
CO War Tank 2W1S, destroy Art

Enemy Day 9
MD attacks Gunboat
War Tank attacks CO War Tank, keep 7 and leave him with low 6 or 5 HP

Day 10
Finish capturing
CO War Tank destroys War Tank
War Tank 1N1W
Lander 2N1W
Gunboat 4S, drop W

Enemy Day 10
Keep 7HP with War Tank

Day 11
CO War Tank destroys Inf
War Tank destroys MD Tank
Inf 1W, capture HQs

Enemy Day 11
Keep 7HP with Inf

Day 12
Continue capturing
CO War Tank destroys Tank

Day 13
CO War Tank 2W, destroy Inf
Join War Tank 2S1E, join
Finish capture

I don't think that C22 is possible in 9 days even if power & technique are ignored.. destroy western missile with CO bember on 6 days. so can be built bomber in northern airport on 6 & 7 days. then destroy the units around Penny's HQ with three bombers, two w-tanks, two anti-airs & mech by 9 days. and start capturing HQ with bike.

(note: produced unit, day1 rig, day3 bomber, day4 load Lin into bomber, day6 bomber, day7 bomber)


Finally got around to play C22 for real, got 9/440 (140 Speed).

I built Day 1 Tank, Day3 Bomber, Day 4 CO into it, Day 6 Bomber.
In fact there is a bit room, so it would been possible without the Day 6 Bomber.

how do you get 400 in freehaven? and the guide for moving on is full of errors (for 378 pts). and how to get 5 days on c10? and how to make the 2 fighters move west on waylon flies again?

How to get the highest scores as on Cyberscore? Any of them needed. How to make the 2 fighters go west on c20?

I am so happy right now. Thank you Gippy for reviving the game with your speedrun. Perfect Power. Perfect Tech. The BC is no longer lost in order to bait the Fighter to get the 5 days rout. I use 2 full HP AAs and sandwich the Fighter from North and from South so it has no escape, and 2HKO it.

Unless a 4 days rout is possible, this score is perfect.

This score took me 9 hours of non-stop brainstorming and reloading to get. Only stopped to have dinner and go to the toilet a few times.

Edit: units set to AI Defensive can actually move out if it’s to shield another unit (Duster, Fighter and Bomber have been seen moving to shield Rockets in some cases).

Re: Single-Player Maps High Scores and Strategy

Revival of this game?

Other early campaign maps of interest:

C8:
I got 7/436 with perfect Tech (missing in the first post) with 7 enemy units built.
It can be improved with 6 enemies built (out of a theoretical maximum of 7 = 2+2+3) in 6 days to 6/438.

C10:
A lot of room there.
FIrst off we lose an Inf at the start, which can be avoided but a lot of units will be damaged if you do so.
Tech could also be improved by having the AI build more, in fact you can get him building 1 more IIRC by destroying a loaded T-Cop but this way doesn't gain anything.
The map can also be delayed by 1 or 2 more days, the current bests are 7/432, 8/431 and 9/432...

Turns out that it’s possible. Got 4/399 150S 137P 112T on DS, lost the BC to bait Fighter. I’ve been trying so hard but for the life of me I cannot improve Power to the point where it makes a new high score. AAs are still useless (only STL will get that). There are so many possibilities on this map, you could either build a unit (I find Recon to be the most useful) to try and increase Power, or do any sort of different kind of movements. The AI has so many possible movements, some of which sometimes look impossible, some of which MOST of the time look impossible. Me and STL have gotten the 2nd Duster to move 7sq E of Waylon, which I call the “perfect Duster movement”. Too bad this is exceedingly rare and I have no idea how to reproduce it, it would help a lot in increasing the Power score as then you wouldn’t need to bait it with Missiles and make them go to 9HP, decreasing their power and also blocking the Mech’s advance, if you happen to need it in that direction. The Rockets are also a b***h, even on D1 they have 2 possible movements, one of them makes the win impossible as far as I’m concerned. They fear your range a lot, using Recons and the BC accordingly can help in making them move where you want them. Then there’s the Defensive Fighter, which for some reason can decide it doesn’t want to suicide on Waylon, apparently. So many things. I cannot max Power, and I hate this map for it.

New high score

C7 A Kind of Home 4/404 150S 146P 108T

Taking a break seems to have made me a lot smarter, finally got a decent Power score. BC lost to bait, Recon built for Power. This map is so stupid, I need to build a unit for power, but 3 of the pre-deployed units aren’t even used once. Also, I hate the RNG so much. It has showed me before 2 movements that would give me 150P, but it never does them again when I actually need them in the strategy. This score was a byproduct of my attempt to get 149P, and when it failed I changed plans on the fly. Expect a 1 point or so improvement in Power soon.

Edit: C7 A Kind of Home 4/405 150S 147P 108T: http://i.imgur.com/h6rPGdP.png

So disappointed in the RNG for this map. I raised Power by using the 3 units that went previously unused. This map is stupid.

Edit2: C7 A Kind of Home 4/408 150S 150P 108T: http://i.imgur.com/2bVLyOo.png

Even better usage of those 3 units. Except one of them doesn’t get used again. I’m actually really happy about this score, maxed score for 1 lost (99% surely inevitable) and 1 built (maybe improvable), I didn’t expect to get this even without Godly RNG luck. :D

Edit3: I think I know how to get 4/412 but it requires either rare or impossible RNG. /// Well even just getting the Recon kill looks hard. And it would probably require the perfect Duster movement to even win. Rockets aren’t a problem.

Edit: I give up, I’m never getting the perfect Duster movement and Def Bomber Arty bait, which are necessary for 4/412.

Re: Single-Player Maps High Scores and Strategy

2 new highscores from my side:

C10: 7/439 (150-150-139) (from 7/432)
The AI built 2 more units than the previous HS run. It built 2 units every day.
In theory 3 units (T-Cop + 2 Infs) could be built on a single day but I never saw that happen, even T-Cop + Inf already required manipulation.
Not losing the Inf at the start would improve the score to 445, but a lot of your units need to be injured in that process, so I'm not sure that it's possible.

C16: 7/450 (from 8/450)
Used a CO Tank instead of building a MD and COing that. It's still an elegant run as you destroy most enemies besides a few escaping Infs.
The theoretical maximum is 6/450 (AI must build 10 units for perfect Tech and has 2 bases) but that would need to be more of a HQ rush then.

8 day rout, this is now almost certainly maxed out. Even if 7 days were possible, I don't think you could ever do in perfect Tech or Power.

C21 and C23 left to work on, then maybe improving C25.

Re: Single-Player Maps High Scores and Strategy

Postby STL » Tue Mar 17, 2015 9:24 am

Here is how to capture Blue and Yellow in 9 days:
From Day 5 onwards units could be build for the future capture of Black, the S APC could also be moved different from Day 7 on.

Day 1
Build SW APC

Day 2
APC 1N
Build NW, SW, SE Inf

Day 3
NW Base Inf 1S, load into APC, move 2W4S, drop S
SW Base Inf 2W
SE Base Inf 2W
Build SW Bike, NE, SE Infs

Day 4
NE Base Inf 3E
SE Base Inf 3S
Bike 1N4W
NW Inf 3S, load into APC, move 3S3E
NE Inf 2W1S
S Inf 3W, cap City
Build NE, SE Infs

Day 5
SW Inf near Red HQ 1S, cap City
3 other Infs near Red HQ 3E
Bike 1W2S, cap Base
NE Inf near Blue HQ 3S, cap City
SW Inf near Blue HQ 1W2S
APC 1S5E

Day 6
NE Inf near Red HQ 2E
W Infs near Red HQ 3E
SW Inf near Red HQ, finish capturing City
Bike, finish capturing Base
NE Inf near Blue HQ 2S
SW Inf near Blue HQ 2S
APC 4S2E, drop E

Day 7
NE Inf near North Yellow Base 1S
NW Inf near North Yellow Base 2E
SW Inf near North Yellow Base 1N1E
SW Inf near Red HQ 1E, cap City
Bike 3S, cap City
NE Inf near Blue HQ 1S
SW Inf near Blue HQ 1S
Inf near Yellow HQ 3E
S APC 1S3W

Enemy Day 7
Blue Art must move 1S of the Blue HQ
If you followed the guide exactly this will always happen.
However Blue could make a Tank instead of the Art and the 9 day cap will not work.

Day 8
Join Infs near North Yellow Base in Woods
SW Inf near Red HQ, finish capturing City
Bike, finish capturing City
Inf near Blue HQ 1E2S, cap HQ
Inf near Yellow HQ 1N1E, cap HQ
S APC 1E2S3W

Day 9
Finish capturing Yellow and Blue HQ

I figured it out a day later and uploaded a vid on YT so that I wouldn’t forget it again. Considering I’ve pretty much stopped competing for Cyberscore and as a result I don’t care anymore about hiding strategies, I’ve made the video public now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7WnqU4zV4Ic

Lots of RNG manipulation goes into it to get favorable movements at every turn. If you see the vid “jump”, that’s me loadstating to get better luck. The vid can be used on the main site if anyone wants to put it there under the best score strategy or whatever.

Off-topic: STL can I see a picture of you? I really want to, because I don't completely remember what you look like.

Been playing Hourglass on emu, and wow the AI is either cheating or fudge weird. On D1 it can’t see your Mech but it still won’t move the Tanks forward if you move the Mech 2 squares. In general the AI seems to react differently to moves that it can’t even see, it’s dumb. I was trying to figure out the record on my own for a while but the map is really stupid and I couldn’t conclude anything. Hat’s off to STL. Followed most of his first 3 days before figuring it out, and his ending is better than mine anyway. Also the Inf attack on Wood Tank is stupidly rare.

Day 3:
- Move remaining Mech 1S1E and attack Mech, deal 5HP damage

As said before dealing 5HP damage is not necessary but it does make things easier.

-STL- wrote:Enemy Day 3:
- Both enemy Mech attack your Mech, you keep 2HP

This is straight up unnecessary. It’s very rare that being at 8HP with the Mech will lock you out of the victory.

If this doesn’t happen you can actually amend the strategy to still make it work, but it probably requires a lot of luck; I only did it with RNG cheats. It’s mostly the same, just bring Silo Inf South (to the Mountain 2N of Radar), 7HP Mech destroys Bike without moving (actually it was a Mech in my attempt, hmm…), join, Radar Inf moves 1N, 6HP Inf 2W 1S into Wood. E Bike will attack the 6HP Inf and be in range of Arty, W Mech will attack your Arty and be in range of Silo Inf, your 9HP (maybe 8HP works too?) Mech can kill the Tank and your CO Tank needs to be 7HP so it can OHKO the last Mech after the V Tank counter.

I’ve also seen the 7HP Bike not attack the Mech to go 7–3 once.

Edit: Holy fudge D1 is actually from DTaeKim’s GFAQs guide. :0 So I guess DTK + STL strat.

I’m trying to figure out C5 New Allies 6/450. I feel like it shouldn’t even be hard but it’s fudge impossible. :( You can only lose 1 unit and the AI can build 1 if you’re lucky and the Bike captures the Factory, I still don’t even understand when it wants to do that.

I got 6/435 with 2 units lost and AI 0 built. Lost Tank and Recon on D5 for baiting the 3 Tanks near HQ, one was actually S close to my Bike and I used Arty to bait that one, then shielded my Arty with Mech/Inf but the Recon/Tank had no way to escape. I captured the S City with the Bike. Got Recon to attack mine, destroyed it with Arty, then Recon went on City and with 9HP it went 8N to bait HQ Tank, kept 1HP to protect Bike cap (because the other Tank was still in range, the one baited by my Tank). I killed the other Recon by baiting with Plains Inf and OHKOing with Mech (4% counter, 85% attack). Only made those 2 attacks. If the AI Bike wasn’t actually stupid I would’ve been really close to the 450 since that’s 1 lost with 1 AI built. D4 situation: http://i.imgur.com/6J7spxp.png

I feel like I need to get the 2 Recons to attack something on D2 and be OHKO’d D3. http://i.imgur.com/SB1W9p1.png /// This would be good if the AI Bike went for the Factory I think… http://i.imgur.com/TMOs1Jm.png /// Hmm… http://i.imgur.com/SBAYQ8v.png got 6/443 from this. :( Still 2 lost, AI built 1… I don’t know how to cap the HQ without losing 2 units. ._. My Mech basically did nothing, it only shielded the Arty on D5. /// This seems like a slighty better position… http://i.imgur.com/0QjcQwR.png also, I’m getting 185 Power, I should try to find a way to make an attack to save 1 unit…

C5 6/450 http://i.imgur.com/yvCRNsa.png HAHAHAHAHA FUDGE YES!!!! This required a fudge ton of luck, but I only lost the Artillery in the end which I think is probably what STL did too, so I don’t think he had a better strategy… but he probably did. I’ll write a D2D after dinner. The trick I figured out was to put the Artillery on top of the allied City so that it would heal and take 3 attacks before dying instead of 2 (even on Wood Tank on Arty is 50% min).
