That's a pretty good score for SWS. Which route did you take in stage 5 & 7?



Bosporus then Moskva, I believe it was. I know whichever stage has all of the fuel tanks that have bonuses, I just hugged the top of the screen as much as I could, and got at least an extra 70K or more in points right there.

I also did some digging, and apparently if you clear the game with a character, regardless of continuing, you get a 2nd WWII style plane for everyone, with different weapons and bombs.

Yeah, I tried that out a while ago. You also get a new (more difficult) first stage when you use the new plane.

Very minor improvement, but this time I got to the final stage mid-boss.

Should have cleared Sonic Wings by now. With Kowful, I no-miss/no-bombed the first 4 stages, used one bomb on Stage 5, so that's the last two stages with all lives and potentially a dozen bombs...and I still didn't beat it. Went back to Keith again and got this score:

SONIC WINGS

538,700 - DocHauser - 1-7 - Keith - MAME

Final boss, if I'd got the monkey boss I think I'd have cleared it this time, as I had a couple of bombs to spare. Instead I got the rocket thing, which is harder.

A minor scoring tip for Sonic Wings (maybe it applies to the other games in the series, not sure) - you can have 6 bombs maximum. If you collect another you get 10k for it. Only chance you'd get to collect them is on stages 5-7, so I guess it's not worth a huge amount of points (unless you can beat the 2nd loop as well without bombing).

Cleared the first loop in Aero Fighters 8)

AERO FIGHTERS

755,500 - DocHauser - 2-2 - Kohful - MAME

Made mighty hard work of that (as evidenced by all the stage 7 scores below it), but I got there eventually...

SONIC WINGS SPECIAL

476,100 - DocHauser - 1-9 - Captain Silver - Saturn

Don't know if anyone's tried the Time Attack on SWS. My best run so far has been 2:05.70 with Captain Silver. Might be possible to get under 2 minutes, just need to time the bombs perfectly...

Good stuff, Doc.

I gotta sit down and beat these damn games; I'm so close to 3 of 'em.
I just haven't had much time since Wed.

Cleared SWS 8)

SONIC WINGS SPECIAL

625,200 - DocHauser - ALL - Captain Silver - PSP (PSX version)

No loop in this one. Went the Bosporus/Hawaii route. The mid boss in the final stage is the major tough bit, the end boss was pretty easy. Actually, it was the first time I'd reached it...

Yeah, I credit-fed the 1 time because I wanted to see Volk's 2nd plane; the Hawaii mid-boss was definitely harder than the final.

AERO FIGHTERS / SONIC WINGS: (SNES / SFC / ARCADE / MAME)
1. 755,500 - DocHauser - 2-2 - Kohful - MAME
2. 468,900 - ExedExes - Villiam - 1-6 - MAME

I play the snes version every once in a while, and I just want to say that I'm very inspired by your scores. How did you achieve them? Playing through on hard I'm only at about 190K points without losing any lives [Zone 4 I died] (best I've managed so far)... Does difficulty impact how many points you get? (Drunk and can't remember right now)...
I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes.
