Oh, you bet it's super hard... unless you know the secrets
Unfortunately, I see no easier way to do Totem challenge missions on Super Hard
Those missions are the only ones that kinda put me down in this game. Because you NEED to be lucky for your rival to destroy a certain amount of totems so all of them can be destroyed before the time runs out, but the AI is broken in that game mode. Like, 7 out 10 times I play, the rival get stuck somewhere in the map and then I have to destroy all the totems by myself which seems to be impossible.
The broken AI must be a bug from the game itself and has nothing to do with the translation, but I can only hope that someone, someday, will take a look on it and try on a tweak to fix that.
I'm completely stuck at Totem challenge in Shinobi Village(Grand Prix Race #4) on Super Hard because the stupid rival only destroys 2 or 3 Totems and then get stuck at most of times.EDIT:
I forgot to mention. In case you have a weak computer like me, and is running this on No$GBA 2.6a with NO$Zoomer, you can fix the timer issue(which leads to instant lose) by activating Other > EXTRA > EX 0
and you can also fix the issue posted by Supper
that leads the game to crash after visiting a shop that is all sold out by activating Other > EXTRA > EX 2
EDIT #2: Today I had about 4 bugs from the shops even having Other > EXTRA > EX 2
enabled, so I don't know. Also, I began having some weird "The ROM Crashed" errors right after doing a purchase from any shop. It's really weird that this all began to happen to me all of the sudden. I've had been playing this game for 2 days without any problems before that with EX 2
enabled. I'm at mission #73, if that has anything to do with it.
