The (Complete) Mission Ranking Guide

Kinda dumb how you split one mission per post. You could have easily gotten 3 or 4 maybe more missions per post and saved some space. Certainly better than the last topic though.

Also...

THE MISSING INGREDIENT!!!!!!!!!!!

Difficulty Multiplier
Human = 0.85
Devil Hunter = 1.0
Son of Sparda = 1.8
Dante Must Die = 3.0

HOWEVER, there seems to be some funky rounding going on in the calculations. The formula almost works...

Examples:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6VI5waz6H8
Mission: 07 (2,500 clear pts)
Difficulty: DMD (3.0x)
Clear Time: S (3.0x)
Stylish pts: 12,126
Orbs Found: S (2.0x)
Bonus & Penalty: No Item (1.2x) No Damage (1.5x)
DH Rank: 478,592 pts
(12,126 + 2,500) x 3.0 x 3.0 x 2.0 x 1.2 x 1.5 = 473,882.4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iWp4-KxvPWo
Mission: 12 (1,000 clear pts)
Difficulty: SOS (1.8x)
Clear Time: S (3.0x)
Stylish pts: 8,051
Orbs Found: S (2.0x)
Bonus & Penalty: No Item (1.2x)
DH Rank: 117,309 pts
(8,051 + 1,000) x 1.8 x 3.0 x 2.0 x 1.2 = 117,300.96

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zt6lHsim41s
Mission: 05 (1,500 clear pts)
Difficulty: DH (1.0x)
Clear Time: S (3.0x)
Stylish pts: 6,954
Orbs Found: S (2.0x)
Bonus & Penalty: No Item (1.2x) No Damage (1.5x)
DH Rank: 91,304 pts
(6,954 + 1,500) x 1.0 x 3.0 x 2.0 x 1.2 x1.5 = 91,303.2

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5fB4m7rR-ws
Mission: 02 (1,500 clear pts)
Difficulty: H (0.85x)
Clear Time: S (3.0x)
Stylish pts: 7,797
Orbs Found: S (2.0x)
Bonus & Penalty: No Item (1.2x) No Damage (1.5x)
DH Rank: 85,348 pts
(7,797 + 1,500) x 0.85 x 3.0 x 2.0 x 1.2 x1.5 = 85,346.46

FYI I pulled this info off this thread at devils-lair.org... http://devils-lair.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5334

I had noticed DMD scores were 'about' 3x higher than DH, this rounding thing must be explained away though!

How many nerd points do you have?

I've actually already gotten an e-mail regarding those multipliers, but I'm reluctant to include any such information until I hear something from Capcom.

Still waiting on that one. -_-

I used some algebra to figure out someone's Style points today, and the number he posted was EXACTLY what it came out to....so I'm fairly certain you can post these difficulty multipliers. I'll list the equation and the answer below, just incase you still need more proof:

(1500+X)*3*3*2*1.5*1.2=540824
X= 15192 (exactly what he posted later on!)

Quick little question. On the actual Total Ranking screen, what are the purple icons with numbers next to them? I'm thinking they're Combat Adjudicators, but I don't understand the numbers next to them.
#97C16Posted 3/29/2008 3:05:42 PMmessage detail
Ok, I figured out that they're the secret missions. Nevermind.

Good news, folks--Seth finally got the info. He hasn't posted it yet (something about writing the reply and losing it in his 150+ open Firefox tabs), says he'll give it to me when he's back at the office tomorrow. He also warned me that he didn't get such great answers, so not to get too excited, but we'll see what's what when he posts it.

Alright, it wasn't particularly helpful. In fact, the only difference was the insertion of something called a "rank multiplier" into the equation. I'm assuming this means a difficulty multiplier, because it can't refer to Stylish Rank (the multipliers simply run too high!) or to mission rank (which is determined by the equation itself), though I've asked Seth to clarify if possible.

His clear time ranking table is identical to mine, including the obvious typo, so that one wasn't Prima's fault.

No info on how many orbs are needed for 100%, either. -_-

For now, I'm going to cautiously include the difficulty multipliers devised by fans, until further word can be gotten from Capcom.

Topic doesn't include s rank requirement for orbs. :(
