    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    7.  OTHER NOTES
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Your Score grade is determined by increments of 5,000.  So if 29,615 is a B+
    for a certain stage, 25,001-29,999 is a B+, 30,000-34,999 is an A-, 
    35,001-39,999 is an A, 40,000-44,999 is an S, and so forth.  If 38,298 is an
    S for another stage, then 35,001-39,999 is an S, 30,000-34,999 is an A, 
    25,001-29,999 is an A-, and so forth.
    
    When completing a stage with full life, you are awarded 10,000 points
    (Life Bonus).
    
    The Time Bonus is affected by how fast you complete a stage AND by either 
    your Hack spec, other spec or parts(in some way).
    
    To get an S Rank in Score, you generally want to be +-10 seconds within the 
    S Rank in Time.
    
    Destroying soft bricks, getting packs (power-ups), destroying enemies, 
    opening doors, going through teleport pads, and getting a Life Pack when at 
    full health, will all increase your score.
    
    Killing more than one enemy at once using the same chain of bombs/flames will
    grant you a score multiplier by how many enemies you have killed.  For 
    example, if you kill 3 enemies at once, with each enemy worth 300 points, 
    you will receive 1500(300 + 300 + 300 * 3) points.  If you kill 2 enemies at 
    once, with each enemy worth 100 points, you will receive 300 100 + 100 * 2) 
    points.  The multiplier is applied to the enemy who dies last (is hit last)
    's point worth.
    
    Star (Magician) Bomber and Cute Pink can be used to get the majority of 
    S ranks of all total stages.
