Why do players avoid treasure in Gauntlet?

In all of the high-scoring runs of Gauntlet that I've seen, the player makes a conscious effort to avoid picking up treasure unless it is blocking a path. What's the reasoning? Does it increase rank or speed up your health loss?

MaxSpeed's 1CC of Strikers 1999 is quite nice. He pulls off the double technical bonus on 1-6 and 2-7 (missing it on 1-7).

Maybe the score should be a Cadash style score; base it on the frame number of something. Just random numbers, but: If you finish the game, the score is the frame number. Lowest number wins. If you don't finish, it is the score = 50,000 - points. This would prevent leeching and encourage speedy comp...

Sorry to thread hijack. But are you the same Innuendo from the Strikers 1945 Plus video on youtube.com?

Players at MARP are welcome to play at harder than default settings. Nothing wrong with trying to score higher by using a higher difficulty. This seems contradictory as you should then be able to play on easier skill levels to yield less points but get further (I know that's not the case). It annoy...

I agree with ghemant here, playing on 2 lives isn't fun[/quote]

Striker 1945 Plus settings?

What are the appropriate settings for Strikers 1945 Plus?

I thought it used to be Starting with 2 planes in reserve. But when I tried recording recently (Wolf 108) it started with 1 in reserve.

Which is it?

Is there a Trojan replay where player finishes the game?

I know it's not the best way to maximize score, but I'd like to see a clear of the game. Does one exist?

That was an excellent replay. I always thought the p51's charge shot was useless. Completely wrong.

Cool videos. Thanks for uploading.

This is one of my favorite fighting games - I just can't get good at it.
