Stage 3 is such a ramping up :lol:

Clearing 600K by a little now, but that stage 3 boss is hard. Must conserve bombs!

Anyone doing better than 130K or so by the end of the first stage? Wish there was more to squeeze out there somehow...

So I credit fed to the end to check it out, and :shock:

Ignore what I said above about level 3 ramping it up. Level 4 is about the same, but levels 5-8? Fucking nuts. I'll be happy, at this rate, if I can ever GET to level 5 legitimately. There's some crazy shit on the later levels, the final boss is a hard case, and this game doles out punishment - especially if you are trying for score.

As you can see, even on shmups.org, there's only one ALL: http://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic.php?t=11950

Great game, though!

Also: having sound problems? Here's the awesomeness you are missing: http://nicoviewer.net/sm5262843

There's another ALL in the thread, from about a month ago, but it hasn't been added to the table yet.

DocHauser - 871,490 - Stage 4

I'm a bit preoccupied with the tournament over on shmups forum, but I had time for a quick credit on this. For some reason, there was a glitch when it went to the high score table, and it still showed an old score from a while back, instead of the score I just got. The real score was still shown on the attract-screen, though (top left).

Getting your shot up to full power then losing a life can result in you losing all your power-ups, which is obviously a bad thing. I lost my first life against the Stage 3 boss, though, and an F pick-up was dropped on screen, which - when collected - instantly returns you to full power. I'm not sure if the F icon appears on the Stage 3 boss, or if it's dropped when you die with max power. It certainly comes in useful, though...

Anyone else get a weird glitch where when you bomb once, it immediately auto-bombs the rest of your stock, and then when collecting a Bomb power-up it instantly uses it? this happened to me a couple times already on both my modded xbox and my laptop, with a variety of controllers :? really strange...

FUCK! They started already?!! I wish I had known they were doing it early this year (it was in late July the last two years and in late August before that). :evil:

Why did they start early? Why didn't any of y'all say something? Who all from RB is playing? :?

Goddammit that is always one of the highlights of my year for playing games, period. fuck.

EDIT: Wait, this isn't the team based, dex-run tourney? phew. Is that not happening??

Different tournament, run by trap15. No teams, just individual ranking.

http://shmups.system11.org/viewtopic.php?t=45795

So far we've had Armed Police Batrider (Special Course) in week 1, and currently War of Aero in week 2.

I presume the yearly tournament will take place at the normal time. Is there usually a Racketboy team?

Probably have to be registered at shmups to be a part of that, huh?
