Quoted from PanzerFreak:
Yeah, bit worried about that. I'm playing the new code leaving ghost target mode shot spotting off, and not letting scenes be marked completed if they are not completed by the player. Every other setting is the new default. I think those two adjustments make the game a lot more challenging, and for the good to great player will make mode progression more rewarding.
I plan to always have GB in my collection so the two adjustments above are a must in my opinion. What's cool is you can play a God mode based game with friends with a quick setting. Then again I don't want to see any spoilers for that mode lol.
Quoted from luvthatapex2:
Its easy to make the game harder (settings, move the outlane posts, etc) but its impossible to make the game easier. Now its easier, its your turn to tighten up the settings to your liking.
Agreed. I am going to have to take some more time to play and find what I need to tweak.
I did notice right away that letting scenes marked completed if they are not completed was far too easy for progression.
Personally, I never felt the original code was "too hard" but I know im in the minority with that.
