I've still a handful games left I'd like to clear or at least put more effort into before I decide that my struggles are in vain (most notably some more Konami games, Raiden DX and Varth; I also think I might be able to beat Valtric...), but I could try to create a compilation of my own (not sure whether to only include arcade games on that one or also the console stuff?). I'll do it when I reach 400 1CCs (which is 17 games away) at the latest, probably earlier than that. :)

Mission accomplished - got the Konami games, Raiden DX, Varth and an assorted number of other games out of the way (including some Dooyong games Image) for a grand total of 400 1CCs. I'll probably work on Valtric in a sporadic manner so as to not despair. Didn't think I would find this many games, frankly, that was immensely satisfying. The list will come soon. :)

This deserves a double post for I just cleared Valtric - turns out the game is not nearly as hard once you figure out the secret technique against the final boss. Image Really glad I cleared it, there's not a single full run on YT unless I'm mistaken, time to change that! And that second loop. :shock:

Congratulations Perikles !

400 1cc's is a sick achievement. It is good to have trusted 1cc/knowledge base which definitely is your YT channel. As a person who 1cc'ed over 90 games in real arcade environment , I think I can imagine what you came through to do it. Let's not forget it is not only about the numbers - you didn't avoid hard games clears. Thank you for your effort and for your YT videos descriptions - always interesting to read and mentioning regional/set differences info is very helpful at least for me. Keep'em coming - we want more !

Wow, 400 1ccs is something else. Congrats Perikles.

Got the clear on Dodonpachi last week using Type C/laser. Getting to the second loop sounds like a whole other challenge though, might take a break before going for that. Not quite 400, I think this was my 11th clear :)

Hey everyone, what's up?

Not long ago (Back at noon-time), I finally got my 1st Hell Mode ALL! Clear of Blue Wish Resurrection! I used the Blue Wish ship for this one! :D

Image

I wanted to get this one ever since I got both the Eden's Edge Doom Mode ALL! Clear and the Eden's Aegis Hell Mode ALL! Clear (Wait off), so I went right for BWR Hell Mode after I got those 2 down! It was a bit on the tough side, actually (I opted to use Blue Wish instead of Blue Peace), and it took a little bit longer than expected to get it (I went out of town for all of last week, so that contributed quite a bit to that), but I got through it, and by the end of March, to boot! :)

Battle Traverse Extreme 1cc.
Figured I should clear this since no-one else has done it so far.
Extreme is kinda weird. It looks very overwhelming with the crazy amount of bullets and the walls of suicide bullets that appear if you lock shot too much. But there is a ton of slowdown and cancelling so it's not -that- bad. It's definitely easier than a Hard 2-ALL, especially with the TLB being much easier. There is so much slowdown going on in this mode that it actually turns a 30 minute loop into a 45 minute loop, it's pretty crazy. The bosses are probably the hardest part of Extreme, since there is no cancelling there. Video

Oh yeah I also did a DFK Ura 2-ALL and a DFK BL Strong 1cc I guess.

As I said on your video - thanks for that. Interesting that you mentioned the Hard 2-ALL - I've never seen a video of the loop. Do you intend to do that one too some day?

Zaarock has a run up to 2-4 here. I believe this is the TLB.

R-Type 2-ALL.

The only other R-Type I've ever played is R-Type II for one of the tournaments.
Tried the first game after seeing Icarus stream it and saying that R-Type II is apparently by far the hardest in the series.

Well it was indeed much easier. Beat it in 2 days.

Thanks! I've had the game since Decemeber but I've only actually played for about ~15 hours (most of it in boost).

Finally obtained a single credit clear in Pulstar last night. I lost a couple of lives at the final checkpoint in stage 7 (I totally thought my run was over) and another life or two at the final boss... I think I had 2 lives remaining in stock once he died. I'm going to keep working on the No Miss as I really don't feel like trying to practice that double suicide nonsense on the stage 8 boss' final form.

I finally cleared Gaiares on original hardware. I played it on and off for a couple years but started getting more serious the last few months. I did use a cheat code for level select for practicing purposes. I guess like an old school version of modern day save states. But I did a full run to clear it. I feel so proud!! There was a time when I didn't even think I can get past level 2, let alone beat it. Anyway , I wanna hear your guys opinion on the difficulty as far as 16 bit shooters go. Ive played a few 16 bit shooters and this to me is without a doubt the hardest one.

1CC'd Virtua Cop for the first time! Don't know if I'll ever 1CC the sequel, though.

Perikles has the most experience on the forum (and perhaps the world lol) when it comes to 16 bit shooters, and has cleared literally hundreds of shmups. He created a list of relative difficulties in this thread: viewtopic.php?f=1&t=59651

I believe Gaiaries is rated somewhere in the middle of the pack in terms of difficulty.

Raiden II 1-ALL.
The STGweekly episode reminded me that I always wanted to play this so I did.
The game itself isn't that bad, but you can't make a single mistake or else it's pretty much instant game over.
I did get super lucky with the full power drop, that's super rare.

Wow, Raiden 2 is savage. Nice work, Jaimers.

Got my first Toaplan 1cc this week with Sky Shark. Such a simple game as far as mechanics go, but a lot of fun. Still have the music stuck in my head.

Image

Thought I would stick with Toaplan and move on to Truxton next. Holy, the difficulty sure ramped up with that one. Still struggling to get past the 3rd stage... any tips would be greatly appreciated!

-From stage 3 onwards stick with the blue laser, it's a fast popcorn killer and covers most of the screen
-Use bombs a lot, the game is based around them, planned bombs for sub-bosses/bosses are especially good/deadly, remember to approach them because the bomb range is limited.
-Memorize the enemies coming from behind, they really aren't that many, I recommend you to stay on the bottom-center most of the time.
-The checkpoints aren't as bad as they seem, recovering in the final stage is completely doable so practice those a bit

This helps a lot, thanks for the tips.

Questions about Speed pickups. I know for top score you want to max out your speed for the bonus pickups. But I'm playing for survival and it gets too hectic after about 2 speed ups. Is it beneficial to avoid speed ups and keep it manageable?

I would love a Truxton 1CC but god damn that game is tough. It's probably next on my list after Futari Original and Maniac.

You can go either way. The thing about playing for score is that you also earn quite a few more extends than you otherwise would, also helping survival along. The first time I've played this game (on the MD, which comes fairly close in terms of structure and challenge), I also only picked up two speed-ups, later on I maxed out the speed in all three versions. It definitely takes some time getting used to, but once you memorize where regular enemies come from and accept that you really want to bomb some of the more dangerous (mid-)bosses into oblivion instead of actually dealing with them, the high speed generally has more advantages than disadvantages.

How do you play Truxton/Tatsujin "for score", and how do the speed-ups help with that?

Collecting extra speed ups after reaching maximum gives bonus points.

Oh christ. Count me out :P I'd probably lose way more lives to flying all over the wazoo than the number of extends I could ever collect. How big a part of a good score run would typically be from excess speed-ups?
