Post Rankings on Sega CD
Does anyone know how the game ranks you on the Sega CD port?

Is it how good you are at certain things (eg, not being clueless, how many times you die), or how does it work?

Unfortunately, it doesn't rank you at all. However, you can get a different end game screen for a reason unknown (best guess by anyone is that it's for beating the game with either no saves or no deaths).



It seems timestamps don't work, so skip to 48:24 to see it.

Actually it does rank you... :mrgreen:

I'm not sure, but I think your "ending rank" is based on all of the "Shooting Sequence" scores you earn?

GILLIAN: What, me a General? This I can deal with! For a military man like me, it's quite an honor!

MIKA: Have a safe trip, Colonel Seed!
GILLIAN: What, me a colonel? This I can deal with! For a military man like me, it's quite an honor!

MIKA: Have a safe trip, Major Seed!
GILLIAN: What, me a major? That has a nice ring to it!

MIKA: Have a safe trip, Captain Seed!
GILLIAN: What, me a captain? Not a bad first rank for someone like me who was in the military!

MIKA: Have a safe trip, Second Lieutenant Seed! I'm a second lieutenant as well, so let's try to work well together when you get back.
GILLIAN: What? I'm a second lieutenant? How come my rank is even lower than what I had in the army, eh?


I obtained Captain the last time I played...which is lower than my forum rank here (Major) lol! \:D/

Well I just got schooled. I've played the game at least three times and have never noticed anything besides captain (in hindsight, I think I got major once), so I had no idea that there were any other ranks. I'd assumed that Gillian being called "captain" was foreshadowing that he would be the new J.U.N.K.E.R. chief.

So what do you have to do to achieve general? Never take a hit? I can't even fathom doing that on the last insector shoot out.
