Got a bit of a challenge just for the heck of it: Throw a Calmarius element into the mix.
Complete a normal insane-max with 100+ shields left.

Didn't play for quite a time, but yesterday I turned Descent on again. Improved level 7 from 7:03 to 6:21. Still improvable, but that boss fight was close to perfect.

Can't help the impression that that boss dies way, way too quickly, even on Insane. Isn't he supposed to have like 4000 hp, compared to a Super Hulk's 325? I thought 4000 was the post-nerf value, apparently it was pre-nerf, though for some reason got carried over to Descent2.ham. Weird :D

Idk how many hp he has. But he has same amount of hp on all difficulties. It was the only time when it took me just two cycles (+ a few random shots while fighting red hulk).

In D1 perhaps boss life isn't determined by difficulty level, but in D2 it sure is. Also, according to descent2.ham he does indeed have 4000 HP. But then again, I believe that he was nerfed in Descent version 1.4, as people complained that he was too challenging, and his hp was cut in half. That's why I was wondering whether this 4000 figure was before or after the nerf. I'm forced to conclude that it was before the nerf, as the level 27 boss is indicated to have 7000 HP, and I sincerely doubt the first boss would have 1k hp more than the final boss.

I dunno... The final boss seems to take a few less hits to kill IMO - but you do have to consider you get mega missiles by then :lol:

And lots of invulns make the fight really easy.
You're right that it's pretty difficult to compare.

Hi, Phozon. Thanks. I though about it and also wrote a message to Spooty on youtube long time ago, but he didn't answer. I also did quite worthy IL collection on hotshot (no death), but I saw there is only full game category on speedrun.com.
Btw great record on trainee, I really like your run!

Ah right, yeah he seems to not have been around doing this stuff for a while. Had to tweet@ him last time I wanted to contact.
I think i'll try to get in contact for making me a mod, so i can try and set up some single level categories and go from there. :s
And thank you! 8)

Hey Everyone!
If you want to stick these on a Leaderboard,
I believe I have set it up on THIS PAGE: https://www.speedrun.com/descent1/individual_levels

Also,
a question: Do you think the Any% Single Level runs should be cold start? (not that there's much interest of that one).
because I wouldn't want to go through all the levels beforehand -eg: until lvl 20- to get the best weapons for just one level.
Oh, and if so, how would secret levels work?
