The saga continues...

Welcome back to the Sonic Wings/Aero Fighters 2 and 3 high-score board.

I have one demand: that if a score is submitted using emulation (MAME, Nebula, etc..) I ask to use the Japan V1 MVS bios (for Sonic Wings) or the USA V1 MVS bios (for Aero Fighters). I am not accepting new scores otherwise (Europe, Asia, etc..), unless you're on real hardware which is not as easy to change the bios. For now I will accept all formats; MVS, AES(home), & Neo-Geo CD. Until I learn more on whether or not the home versions have distinguishing/changing features from MVS, they're ok.

Rules: difficulty - Level 4, lives/fighters - 3, continues - none, & auto-fire - permitted.
Extends:
AF2 - 200 000
AF3 - 300 000

Enter score as follows:
Code:
NAME - SCORE(no commas) - PILOT(S) - STAGE - VERSION (REGION)

To determine if the stage you ended on in AF3/SW3 is A, B, or C, refer to this chart:
http://vignette3.wikia.nocookie.net/sonicwings/images/4/42/Chart.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20091108025745
With 2 options: A = left & B = right. With 3: A = left, B = centre, & C = right.

For more information, consult the Strategy board and index.
Given the simple nature of these games, perhaps the Sonic Wings Wiki will have what you need for both 2 & 3.
Some discussion can be found here, in the old thread.

there are 3 versions of AERO FIGHTER 3 / SONIC WINGS 3.

1. USA
2. EURO
3. JAPAN

If you have a Neo Geo Jap (MVS or AES or NGCD), your game will be Japanese.
If you have a Neo Geo Usa (MVS or AES or NGCD), your game will be Usa (not multiple ending and little differences with Jap version).
If you have a Neo Geo EuR (MVS or AES or NGCD), your game will be Euro (super difficult bug, no flag in characters select screen etc.)

If you have a Japanese AES Cartridge, but you have a Neo Geo Euro system, your game will be Euro.

Once I get a decent Neo Geo stick and sort out my MVS' colour output problem hopefully I can produce something better than this.

After many failed attempts against the final boss I was glad to finally be able to beat him, I must reckon I must have fallen at the final hurdle more than 10 times. During all those attempts I only saw one of the alternate final bosses once (the ghost boss, and died on him straight away).

I didn't last very long on the second loop (suicide bullets) but was just glad to have cleared the first loop.

Now I just need to track down a Sonic Wings 3 cart....

Posting this for now but I'll try to get something higher before I shelve it.

This game's the fastest 1st loop clear I've ever done, it must've only took about 20 credits (I only do full runs btw, I don't credit feed to practice). Definitely easier to clear the loop than AF2/SW2.

And yeah, my Asian system recognises the game as Sonic Wings 3 not AF3, which I didn't expect when I first tried it. The game must have been released as SW3 in Asian territories.

EDIT: Don't take it as gospel but I think the Asian version of SW3 is the same as the Euro version. I've just seen this video of Euro SW3 and it looks exactly the same as what I've been playing.

This is for AF2:

shmuppyLove - 332500 - HI-EN - ??? - MVS (US)*

Can't remember what stage it was, and it doesn't record it on the hi-scores :'( I think 1-5 or 1-6.

The * is because I'm using a UniBios v2.3 with the auto-fire cheat enabled, but no other cheats. I didn't see it mentioned, auto-fire is ok?

Auto-fire is allowed, whether it's hardware or software based. Scores updated - AF2/SW2 breaks 20 entries!

Aero Fighters 2
Ruldra - 944 500 - Spanky - 2-1 - MAME (AF2)

I was struggling with this game, experimenting with a lot of ships but I could only get to stage 8. Watched Mero's replay, picked the dolphin and was very surprised at how strong his shot is, wasn't aware of that. His small bombs are a lifesaver too, they absorb the bullets. Saved me a couple of times.

Glad I could clear this, it's the shmup I played the most during my childhood.

Aero Fighters 2
RFP - 816 300 - 1-8 - Hi-en - MAME

Haven't touched this in a while and was determined to improve from the old score. A bit of bombing on 1-8 which can be improved on especially since I entered the boss with 0 lives and 0 bombs. I've got Australia down without issue the question now is getting a good spawn of the random stages. Brazil <-> New York then France seems to be ideal.

Sonic Wings 3
RFP - 2 597 300 - Blazers - 2-ALL - MAME

I got lucky facing Soh-Takeko on Mars since she is easier to deal with than the default Mars boss. She however gives far fewer points (about 100K less) so it is better to face the flying saucer. Stage 15 (so 2-6B) had a strange twist as the boss was not the P-61 doppelganger but instead was the enemy you face in AF/SW2 shown here: Image
All that happened was a grey coloured version of that tower enemy simply fell over backwards, just the same as what happens when it falls off the building in AF/SW2. No bullets, no points, nothing. Strange outcome as I've never seen that happen before. With a normal occuring enemy run I can probably crack 2,9 million on a good one.
My route was 1-1, 1-2A, 1-3A, 1-4A, 1-5B, 1-6B, 1-7B, 1-8B, 2-1, 2-2B, 2-3B, 2-4B, 2-5B, 2-6B, 2-7B, and 2-8B.

Very rare indeed, I've faced the first loop boss many many times and I've never seen him, the odds of him turning up must be 100/1 or something.

Anyway, congrats :)

Probably 1/256 chances. Very lucky with Mambu Boss, but not lucky with second loop (stage 12), because I played the impossible "Mato Grosso" stage, and I miss 3 lives :shock:

Image

The good second loop is New York (stage 12) where is possible play until stage 14 (see my previous play of 1,458,xxx).
