I guess you need to time the pause insane and then shoot Jon in the arm or something. Holding Z should cause the gun to shoot asap, at least it did on n64.

I thought about that and i did get 3.71 by shooting him in the leg, but it still seems very very hard to get another .05, even with a perfect armshot?(it's not that much closer than his leg). 

I experimented a bit with using the aim crosshair at the very last second and maybe being able to hit sooner but all i got was 3.75...

I have Duel A 3.66. It isn't as easy as it seems
There is a lot more to this level than meets the eye. For example, you don't hold just right on the movement stick.
The closer you are to something, the bigger it appears, and the more it takes up your vision. Well to get as close as possible to the person you are shooting is the goal here. The more he takes up your screen = the closer to the side of the screen his arm is. Therefore, you want to always be moving towards him. Since you are turning, moving right, at first, is moving to the side of him, then as you get closer, it's moving toward the other side. This will still get you 3.xx (3.70-3.76), which is why it didn't matter in N64, but it doesn't cut it for 3.66. Basically, you have to rotate the movement stick as you are turning so that you are always moving toward him and a bit to his left(your right) side. If you are just going for 3.68 (A score i can almost consistently replicate), the movement averages out at backward-right, as if you were trying to speed strafe right, but backward. (or left, if you turn left). Start out holding backwards on the movement stick, do the pause when the "F" in Falcon 2 is showing, and rotate 90 degrees slowly as you are turning. Once you shoot him, you should be strafing toward his left(your right) side.

tl;dr - You should be able to pause with the "F" in falcon showing, hold in the fire button, and hit him as you come around. Use the movement stick.

Also, on my .66 run I shot him on his LEFT foot (The aiming was absolutely wild and chaotic. I looked almost straight down, then shot him on the way back up, and i wan't holding the trigger as i turned. I DID NOT expect it to be .66). Based on this fact, I think 3.65 is possible. Someone will beat my score again!

Oh yeah, also managed to get 6.7x on Defection A and ~2:11 PA (good for 3rd)

I still drop down onto the nearby rail for a split second to do the defection glitch. It seems to work every time and I just can't seem to land into the glitch like the 5 second strat uses. I was able to nail it the first ever time trying amazingly, but couldn't get it the next 40 or so. Oh well; doing it my slower way still got my 6 on A and 36 on SA so I'll take it.

sry bout that It's just that defection is like the only level i can play somewhat good and i like to keep my sweep there for as long as possible (Besides i had been planning to get somewhere 35'ish for a while now).

Interesting Duel stuff, hadn't thought about moving closer to him. Gonna try that next week when i get a chance to play again.

Duel A 3.68

Got this pretty fast. It's really difficult to do the turning, backstrafing and stuff at the same time though...

MBR Agent:    1:34.23 (20th)     a 10 second cut.

G5 Agent: 49.65 (18th)     I'm still really sluggish on the pipes, haven't tried the dropping down and running in the open door after deploying the camspy. I just drop and shoot the guards :-/ room for improvement.

G5 Agent:   1:03.76 (20th)  

Villa Agent:   1:19.55 (23rd)   I lose time on the snipers, but I realized my straffing problem, so hopefully I should be more consistent from now on.

Rescue SA:    2:52.66 (13th)

Lowered my Pelagic agent time too, and had a failed run where I got to the last door by 51, and I quit out where Elvis stands for 58 secs. The 2nd guys animation seemed to indicate he was gonna complete but I musta sped off too soon.
Also a few times, but not often, before Jo gets to finish her sentence, she says "pull the plug on this!" sooner than she normally would. Anyone else had this happen?

Ya that has happened to me only once and I haven't been able to find a way to do it consistently, It would be a nice timesaver.

Hi, I would like to ask everyone of you some things about this game (Perfect Dark arcade):
1: Is this game faster than N64's version?
2: How can I obtain this game? I don't find this information anywhere...  
3: Does anyone know if I can play on my Xbox adapting my N64's controller? I know I can adapt other USB's controllers but N64's is the one I play  better with, and I am buying an N64-USB adaptator.
4: Do I need to have an Xbox live account to play Perfect Dark arcade? Or it's only need to upload my personal records?

Thanks. 
Let A be a pizza of radius z and height a. Its volume is V_A = pi·(z^2)·a = pizza.

extraction sa 1:35, rank 3

i'm almost 100% positive that strafing with southpaw isn't as fast as with normal settings.  i've tried with several controllers, and there's a notable difference between the max speed with the left joystick, and the max speed with the right joystick.  you can definitely see it and also hear it from the sound of jo's footsteps.  can someone else test this?

War A 27.9x?

Finally unlocked war Curious, is anyone using phoenix boosting yet? Doesn't seem necessary for sub 27 and i hope it's not cause looking up/down with legacy is nightmare...

Also what's the wr strat for Maian SA?

Wow, this game is really annoying.
Today, I bought a new xbox 360 controller. then I played air base agent.
I had 19.60 door in 5 mins of play!  my old best time is 20.2x door with old controller (took like 7 hours).
new contoller is really good.. wtf.

also I think I can get 46 extraction agent with this controller.

duel pa 0:10 (rank 7)
duel sa 0:06 (rank 4)

i still suck at strafing.  right now i'm just going to attempt to get top 10 times, and maybe play for some really fast times on levels i enjoy.  not really trying to resuscitate my speedrunning career here.  i'm still convinced southpaw is slower (henrik?)

More comfortable playing environment always helps me do better in games. Probably the same thing with a controller that you like better.

Meanwhile...my only PR in the past forever was Duel SA 6:80. It was second place, but now I am pretty sure it's third.

I really want to do better on Villa. I can do the sniping fine, but i can't speed strafe for crap. Southpaw most definitely feels slower though, so back to normal controls for me. Woohoo.

Why do poeple even bother with soutpaw? It's like the craziest of crazy control styles. 

If you want to speedstrafe, use legacy. Only problem with it is that you can't turn. Should still be way faster than normal control modes.

Edit: War A 27.50

I'm probably going to start switching control schemes in the middle of runs. It's gonna look crazy xD
I've gotten so used to the standard control scheme now that it's difficult for me to switch back to legacy style. It's like relearning how to ride a bike in a weird way.

It doesn't take that long to adjust if you try. I got used to it in a few hours.  

But yeah, combining styles is prolly best for most levels.

Edit: Actually now that i think about it it would make sense if you held the stick down while starting up console that you'd get cruise control, definately trying that out later.

so...taka is absolutely right when he says that the controller plays a big part in strafing.  i tried a wireless controller today and was able to strafe noticeable faster than with my wired controller.  however, i could only get the top speed in left strafe.  right strafe is still fairly slow.  it seems like when you hold the joystick in a certain position for three or four seconds, you achieve maximum speed.  very weird.  i cut 10 seconds off my invest and rescue agent times on first completions, lol.  now i'm pissed because i have to redo all the levels, but i should get some really good times now.

After an extremely long absence... I have returned! Mostly working on beating PA, but I have a few agent times I've worked on. I haven't quite got the hang of strafing yet though. Gamertag = Crucial Kenny if anybody wants to add me, it'd be nice to have some eliters to compare times to on my friend leaderboard.

Some mediocre top 100s.
Investigation A - 1:40.36  86th
Rescue A - 1:44.95  42nd
CI A - 58.20  70th

Great runs Taka! Does running around and shooting really help anything for Invest? 

Btw, i'm still really curious about this strafing thing, do you ever fail to hit the sweet spot? And any tips at all to how to perfect it?? I mean i've been playing for as long as anyone else but i barely hit it ever.

Deep Sea A 3:19

Elvis seems to cooperate easiest if you do first room pretty slow. Had 59 as best on first try but that kinda sucked.

I go for the Devastator because It saves a massive amount of time...without the devastator, how could you even get the time you did? I Can only manage 52~ with it.

Lol you're way off there. Basicly you only need a fast obj 1 complete, so therefor i open both doors downstairs first and then save all hosts upstairs(By shooting all 4 takers, not just opening a door). Then just get rcp and finish level. Don't forget to use both combat boosts since they save massive amounts of time.

Devastator should still save time i think if you do the old N64 52 strat. But above can do 45ish.
