    On those games, the sign after a mid stage boss (ex. Angel Island Act 1 boss) keeps giving you 100 points per hit. Would this be allowed or banned? To me, this is leeching.

    Theoretically, it IS leeching. In reality, with a 10 million point counter, /100 is 100,000 sign bounces.

    IF you can do 100k sign bounces, AND do it with OUT making it a marathon....then I don't see why not :P.

    100000/60 =10000/6 =16666. 6-I minutes at a second a bonce =2777.6-I hours.

    I do not think its an issue

    Actually, I'd email the current Genesis ref on that one. Since the timer I think has stopped at that point, it would be considered leeching, since if you can keep the sign bouncing, you're in no danger of dying. Again, I'd email the current Genesis ref prior to making the attempt.

    oh sorry Russel...I thought I posted that underneath it.

    also thinking about it, I don't think its possible to permanently bounce the signs. Even if you were willing to spend a week+ on it, the sign does get faster and faster.
