I play Dodonpachi on my Xbox, using FBA.
Well, a few days ago I was playing 4th stage. The zone of the last red ship before the boss. I used a bomb (I guess that in that moment I had all the bomb, but not Maximum) just before getting the bomb that red ship drops. Got Maximum. I remain shooting while the score starts to grow, and grows more and more, to 500.000.000!! A little more and I get the WR
I don't know what's happened, it was the first time that I see something like this. I tried to repeat it in a next play but this doesn't work
I believed that sharing this would be interesting, to know if someone experienced something similar. My english is very poor, so it's difficult for me to respond possible quotes
Hi ! Thanks a lot for sharing this. Even though it might be an emulation issue; this may deserve some attention. When you talk about the "Last red ship before the boss"; are you talking about the ship which drops the bomb ? (see: at 11:45 in this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mPWyYMoG0dY
SInce your hit counter did not become crazy; there must have been "one hit" which gives a huge score; or a bug in the maximum bonus calculation. Do you remember which enemies you killed with the bomb and when exactly you used it ? Was it more at 11:43 ? 11:45 ?
Did you catch the bomb (from the red ship) IMMEDIATLY after bombing ?
Also; do you remember if your score was still increasing AFTER the last stage4 enemy (during the 3-4 seconds where we wait for the stage 4 boss, 12:03 to 12:07 in the video) ? In that case the bug would be a maximum bonus bug; and not a bug with the hits.
If you prefer to chat in another language; that is possible in French; Spanish and probably German
