The Sonic Heroes specific-character-only challenge topic
« on: June 15, 2007, 07:08:06 PM »
I just got the idea for this type of topic.  The rules are simple:  Use only one formation throughout the level.  You automatically switch to Flight on the bobsleds and trolleys,  so they don't count as switching formations for these challenges.  On levels where you can't switch out of Speed formation right away, switch to the necessary formation as soon as you gain control.  The TBG is not allowed, since it requires switching formations.  Death is not allowed, except for LJ-C, due to its complexity.  In team battles, you must knock all three off the battlefield without having the foes fall through the platform at the start.  When battling Metal Madness, you may use another formation to get all the possible power cores, but not to attack.  When battling Metal Madness, if the teammate you're using becomes trapped, use the character it switches you to until you can free said teammate.  You cannot, however, attack during this time period except at the Metal Overlord part.  I'll be updating this post with times anyone gets.  The top 2 times will be listed.  If no name is next to a time, it's mine.  The list below is complete to my knowledge.  If anyone finds a way to complete other levels with the specific formation or finds a problem with one of the bosses being unable to be defeated using only the specific formation, let me know all the details.

Ehh, why not minimal swapping? That would be more interesting because you could play in all levels. I've done all Seaside Hill except Rose's without swapping from speed formation but never for speed. I'll try it some time though ;)

I tried some bosses using only Sonic and had serious trouble with one of the last fleets on Robot Storm.  There's a hammer robot and some Pawns, then 3 hammer bots.  I had to team blast the fleet before the hammer+Pawn set, and manually charging the meter in Speed = fail.

How about you have to switch to Fly/Power immediatly and then stay in that formation for the entire level too?

I didnt read anything other than half of Groudons post so sorry if someone already mentioned that
Did you not think I had a mind?

JB mentioned something similar to that.  He mentioned minimal switching.  However, I find what I've come up with a bit more challenging.

Anyway, I vidded my SH-R Amy only run.  Check the first post for the link.

I had a win SH-S speed-only run until the very end.  I got 3:27.83.  That was a 3:26!  The teammates REFUSED to cooperate at the home stretch and I couldn't rocket accel... THAT WAS A FUCKING AWESOME RUN UP TO THE VERY END!

On my test run, I got stuck a little past the beginning.  Later, I'll see if I can figure out how to advance.  If I can't figure it out, I'll ask you for help.

For the boss Team Two with Team Sonic using Flight Formation only, I could count my fastest time on that stage. I only used Flight Formation during the battle, and I was just going for the fastest time. Therefore, I think it can be counted and put up on the chart in the first post of this topic. My time was 00:07:26. It was a surprise when I found out it could qualify. I also have a video of it.

There. Temporary default record until someone else submits one.
The moon is so red. Looks like it's going to be a fun night.
