Post Skill Ratings

I just completed The Phantom Menace on PlayStation. After suffering the death of Qui-Gon, I faced another miserable indignity at the end of the game. My play was rated as that of a "Tew Leki Dancing Girl" (I think). Does anyone have the comparative rankings achievable for TPM game? Is "dancing girl" really a poor score?

I'll see if I can dig up my old list. I think the Twi'Lek Dancing Girl is a 3 or 4. Don't feel bad, tho, because I know how difficult the final level is. Dying and/or restarting can affect your score, and with all the jumping between the rings, dying happens early and often. We put the scoring system in there as basically a 'difficulty' setting, so that if you breeze thru a level, your score goes up, making the enemies move a tad faster, and shoot more accurately. And, thus, if you die a lot, it becomes easier. Then, at the end, we wanted a 'ranking' system so that you might want to play the game again, so we just reported that number on a chart, showing how you finished each level. That's why almost everyone's score goes up and up, and then maybe takes a step or two down for the Final Battle level.

And an e-mail is sent to all your friends automatically, making them all laugh at you. Your mom and dad are contacted and they laugh as well. You get a shock from your keyboard, your speakers laugh at you, and your computer's hard drive formats. Your basement floods and your car breaks down. Oh and you lose your job and your gf leaves you for the mailman...

I'm telling ya those guys at Big Ape don't like cheaters!

Any cheats? Or just the ones that heal you/ give you weapons? Please tell me codes like "perf" and "naughty naughty" won't give me a bad rating?
And---does a trainer affect it?

Ah - good point, and here's what I believe to be true about the 'cheater' rank:

If you use a cheat that changes your life amount and/or weapons or ammo, that is a 'cheater' cheat.

Now, I don't know if using a skill level cheat like 'istink' or 'ireallystink' (those adjust your skill level downwards) are considered a 'cheater' cheat. Do so at your own risk

what about the naughty naughty cheat??? that's my FAVORITE since you can see the people upclose, and it looks more real (it's hard to control when in close combat, but you can shoot down battle droids without them even noticing you (which is kinda cool). How many different questions are there and how many answers to them are there that you ask/answer the different characters?
