Quoted from Pozzest01:
I have a question on the warp ramps Chad. When you get to the warp ramps mode it scores one million for every ramp shot. When the mode is over it scores the ramps again. So it scores each ramp you make twice? Once instantly when you make the ramp and again at the end with all the ramps made together?
During End Of Ball Bonus, you will "cash in" your Warp Factor level. Every 0.1 Warp Factor is worth an additional 100,000 End Of Ball bonus. During End Of Ball, if you have increased Warp Factor at all, it will display the Warp Factor level and then it will display the amount of points it was worth. So, don't tilt and lose it if you got way up there. You can always check your current Warp Factor level via Instant Info.
And yes... as you are increasing Warp Factor in the game, you are also collecting 1 Million for Ramp Millions. Those Ramp Millions points are immediate.
Please note, you don't have to wait for Warp Ramps mode to be able to increase Warp Factor. You can increase Warp Factor at anytime in the game as you collect Ramp Millions (shoot both ramps quickly to start Ramp Millions). However, Warp Factor will only increase by 0.3 during each Ramp shot during Ramp Millions. But Warp Factor will increase by 1.0 during each Ramp shot when Warp Ramps is active.
I tried to make it so achieving Warp Factor 9.9 would be generally achieved during Warp Ramps mode since the Warp Factor increases much more when this is active. If you fail to achieve Warp Factor 9.9... but instead you get way up there... like 8.0... you can try to get to 9.9 by activating Ramp Millions and try to finish it off with the 0.3 Warp Factor advancements.
The jackpot for getting to Warp Factor 9.9 does not have to happen during Warp Ramps.
The keen eye will notice that during Warp Ramps mode, the Ramp flashers all flash every 1 second. The mode is 30 seconds. At the half way point (15 seconds remaining), you will hear the "Those Ramps Are Worth Millions" voice call again. This is to help the player keep track of how much time is left.
Also, the Warp Ramps mode will NOT end if you are in the middle of a Ramp shot loop, even if the 30 second timer is expired. So don't give up!!!
