S-Ranks

Max grind is 250
You name your S-Rank when you have completed all of the stages in under 7 hours. Go to the counter and you can choose your weapon from the ones above. You are not allowed spaces, lower case letters, or special characters like "%&^*. Your name for the weapon has to be 8 letters or less.


General Information

Offline and online c-mode are seperate. ie you can not do up to C5 offline and then do C6-C9 online.
If you do everything under 7 hours in one go, then redoing any stage and completing it, will get you the Gods Shields.


This is by no means a FAQ. It just answers some of the more common questions. If you think anything should be added, then reply here and I will add it. If you need anything more specific, then just create a new thread and I'll reply as soon as possible. Let's try and keep this thread to common questions peeps :) ;).

Thanks to GOLDIE for adding the items for people :)

Well, I have just lately started doing C mode myself, with my Majic character, Where are the C mode meetings held? I am only up to C 2. Did it in about 12 minutes, so I think I am doing somewhat decent for my first C mode stage. XD Anyway, Id like to join too! I really want an S rank all of a sudden. MY friend gave me an S rank rod, but I want to try and get my own offline. See you guys around!

I woundt bother with Multimode Cmode, It sux in my opinion. And there is too much blood shed in my house if someone dies at the boss.

that is true whenever the person gets killed we start arguing on why it was his fault and they start saing that we dont cover them and then all h@#$ breaks loose.

As long as you complete the challenge and get back to the lobby, it will save whatever time you have done for that level. So you can do the quests in order over a few days or months if you want. You can even go back and redo the ones you have done before if you want to get a better time :).

Duo
22-02-2004, 12:16 AM
But do i have to do it all in one sitting to get an S-rank?

decswxaqz
22-02-2004, 12:21 AM
No. As long as your time is under 7 hours, it doesn't matter how long you take it do it.... oh I see the misunderstanding now :).

When you do (for example), C1. You get one time, which is how long you take to complete that level, start to finish. For example, 20 minutes. You then move onto C2. This would take 1 hour to do from start to finish. So your total time up to now, is 1 hour 20 minutes. But you could do C2 a year from now, and it would be the same time.

Just as long as the time you take to complete all C9 levels totals 7 hours or less, you are ok :).

what if you want more of the items you can get (like a god sheld and crazy tune) do you need to play through all of cmode agan?

decswxaqz
31-05-2004, 07:17 PM
Yes. If you have already got those items on that character, then you have to complete c-mode on a different character. So you could get (on one char) all 4 of the god shields, a S-Rank and a 'joke' s-rank (Crazy Tune, Flower Bouquet etc), and an Ep2 S-Rank.
But if you got an s-rank the first time through, you can just complete any c-mode map again, and it will give you one of the shields. Do it again, and you get the other one :).

I don't know why nobody bothers to ask me to help with Cmode, I legitimately earned all 14 ep1 sranks and I'm now working on my 3rd Ep2 Srank. I will more than happily help the people of this site in Cmode.

Dkgamer
23-06-2004, 03:54 PM
Ive only tried offline cmode once, and i dont know how to get to the boss
room on the forest, how do you get past the big thing blocking the
teleporter?

Lionheart
23-06-2004, 05:46 PM
Have somebody stand on the floor switch in that room, that lowers the laser fences and then have one person run through and warp then take the warp immediately behind them. They will be behind the big black thing that blocks the party's way. Then they just have to hit the switch to move it out of the way.

Dkgamer

Lionheart

don't mention it. If you ever need help again, check out my challenge mode guides in the guides section. I only have C8 and C9 left out of Ep1 and I'll have Ep2 done by the end of July (but that's online only so I guess you don't have to worry about that).

Can someone fill me in on what c-mode is? And if me and a few buds beat it in under seven hours, would we all get the special item?

Lionheart
12-07-2004, 05:36 AM
c-mode is Challenge Mode (like the title of the thread says) and if you and your friends beat it in under 7 hours, yes, you would all get a special Srank item.

wow erm i didn't realise you could earn so much offline thx alot am gonna start doing that soon but should i wait untill i get on ult and earn afew weapons or are the weapons i can earn on that better for ult ??? help

challenge mode can only be done on Normal difficulty and you can't bring in any of your weapons/equipment when you do it, so you don't have to wait until you're at Ult before you start, just get 3 good friends over and do it.

Im doing c mode with a friend (android hunter and force) and it is extremely easy, just give all of the scape dolls to the force and have them die when the run out of tp.

Lionheart
16-07-2004, 06:34 PM
well...no there's more to it than that. You don't just have them die when they're out of tp because oftentimes there is a health ring nearby (or the FO is about to level up) so they would've just wasted a scape doll. This goes for items as well (mates and fluids alike), don't bother using them if a ring or level up is nearby. If any of you have questions or problems, just read my challenge mode guides. Not to mention the HU has to be very experienced to be able to fight without dolls (and know where to go etc), and if you two are only doing it with yourselves alone, you will run into problems by C4 or C5 and your times will be terrible for all of them.

If you get a bad time total can you go back to an earlier stage with a bad time and fix it?

Orphen

Offline C-mode also has the crappier S rank items. And this thread is so old, Lionheart hasn't been on this site since like, half a year ago.

decswxaqz
16-11-2004, 10:19 AM
Yes you can. Although I think it will record your last time rather than your best time. Maybe some else can confirm it?

i'm pretty sure it saves your best time over your last time

That may not be the case. If you are constantly travelling through highly populated servers, as well as Vega, that's why. It doesn't matter what kind of adapter you're using.

after completing one stage you can quit and save and next time you get on you can start at the next level. At least thats what I've heard, I've never even beaten the first stage of c-mode yet! :D

Just wondering, when you do c-mode does your level revert to one or something?

Ivan
12-06-2005, 09:42 PM
Just, for c-mode yeah. When you do C-mode you start at certain lv capable of completing the lv. Your normal level isn't affected.

Forge
16-06-2005, 09:27 AM
In Multimode, you can play C-Mode by selecting it from the Mode Select after you have chosen characters. Just note that your character will start Stage 1 as a Lv1 basic character, and you'll have 50 minutes to beat the Dragon. However, you'll return to your normal level in normal Story mode...

do i need to use four players to complete challenge mode or can i do it with jus two? thanks

Querytansytt
09-07-2005, 01:28 PM
you can do it with two players and with four and with three

Forge
11-07-2005, 10:39 AM
However, I think that C-Mode changes depending on the number of players you have. For example, you'll find more difficult enemies earlier with 4 people than with 2.

I'm not entirely sure about this, but I'm sure someone can clear it up (probably Kefka)...

EDIT-

Right, I've been thinking something. I want my HUnewearl to get an S-Rank Claw, but she'll be terrible in C-Mode. Is it possible to trade S-Ranks at all? Alternatively, I could drop it in offline Battle mode and pick it up with a different character?

I have two options - find someone who'll time attack with a HUnewearl on the party, or somehow give the final Claw to my HUnewearl after attaining it with another character (probably a HUcaseal).

Rena

Does the game save your C-Mode level?Because me and my brother got to the second stage,then died.

jarl
14-04-2006, 12:56 PM
@ forge: make a hucast, or whatever, get s-rank claw, go into a normal multimode game, drop the claw off your hucast and pick it up w/ your HUney. done.

@ rena: yes. when you start again, you will go back to the second stage.

Challenge mode, last stage.

Me and my friend are going through Challenge mode, he is using a HUcast and I am using my RAmar character. We are struggeling however, I am 4 levels under my comrade, we do well until we get to the final enemy.

I die whenever he uses his light move, which is not good because most of the enemies can kill me within two hits, all it takes is for me to get hit by the dark belra's claw and im K.O'd.

I was just wondering if I should leave it to luck by finding fair decent armour with slots then finding a light resist somewhere. Or is there another way that I can make it easier for myself?

dnd
02-08-2007, 11:17 PM
i belive you need 221 hp to servive that attack (iirc)

Xylen
05-08-2007, 10:08 AM
Right me and my Friend have completed Challenge mode (to be honest once we actually said to ourselves its time to play properly it was no problem at all).

Well my time was 12hrs 15mins approx 32secs

Now that got me a rank A and I was dissapointed in the item I recieved for it Gods Shield Seiryu (I think :S).

Well me and my Friend was speculating, if we got the Gods Shield for getting and A rank at the end of challenge mode, if we managed to shave some minutes of certain stages on Challenge mode, would our rank change to S AND would we get a different Item (a half decent one)?

K_I_R_E_E_K

I know you don't play the game all that much but your quite knowledgable about it.

dnd
05-08-2007, 02:24 PM
you need to get the time under 7 hours (online anyway i dont know if its diffrent offline) and i belive you get to choose a wep out of 3 or 4

K_I_R_E_E_K
05-08-2007, 03:17 PM

(not sure, i just reminded myself of an old topic)

Xylen
08-08-2007, 04:51 PM
well I'm just after better armour, or possibly Items for my slots. I dunno why I'm doing alright...

but yer, 7 hours... it sounds kinda hard, especially seems as our line up, I might have to find two extra PSO players in my area, two mages a ranger and a hunter is no force to be took idley

nomercy

I think the quipment you find is only stored for use in the main mode once you complete C-mode, considering when you begin you are level one with basic equipment.

Xylen
14-08-2007, 12:32 AM

nomercy
20-08-2007, 07:54 PM
C-mode begins all players at level 1. You must fight your way through the areas, leveling up as you do so. However, it's timed, and the better time you get at the end, the better the items you recieve.

Well, I'm new to this place, and I was wondering if there was ANY way at all to get the S-Rank weapons on offline C Mode.

Since all the official servers were shut down for the G-Cube version, I can't go online except for a private server.

I just saw the S-Rank weapons and how special they are, and I later found out that they are online only! Can anyone please help me with this? Would I still get them on the personal server? (Schtserv.com)

(Sorry if it sounds like I am begging, as I basically am.)
