I was playing a few hours ago and visited the Mythril guy who said I escaped 0 times. Just now I revisited him, and he said I escaped 1 time already.

But my issue is I've never held L and R to escape from a battle or used a Smoke Bomb (and its very easy to tell - I fight all my battles and kill everything, even Midgar Zolom). I was wondering what could have caused the counter to go up?

I was wondering if there's a way to identify what made my counter go up and how?

EDIT: BTW, if it helps, the first visit was just after I got the Buggy after completing Corel Prison+Chocobo race. The second visit was right before Aeris death scene when I didn't fight Jenova and decided to backtrack across the world getting secrets and such.

EDIT2: Thinking of it, perhaps it was Dio's Gold Saucer Challenge? After I beat a round of enemies, I opted not to continue and just move on. Does that increment the counter?

Before reading your post, the first thing I thought of was the fact that you may have escaped from the Battle Square, but I can't be 100% sure. I would have to test to find out, but if anything I'd say yes, your single escape came from the Battle Square

If you test and find out, please let me know! Don't have highwind and don't wanna do the trek to check

I had a look at the field scripts, and the only thing that ever calls upon the variable that deals with escape count is the script found within the sleeping man's cave, which means if running/quitting the battle arena does count towards your escapes, then it is dealt with internally when inside the Battle Arena mini-game.

Super, super busy for the next few hours, but I'll do a hard test later today (meant to do it yesterday but I completely forgot lol)

IIRC getting blown out of battle by the arena's ghost ship enemy counts as an escape. I think I had a similar issue years ago when doing a PG... It's the first thing to come to mind.
I never gained supreme ulti-complete status. I projected my mind ~3 years into the future and realized it was going to be a waste of time.
