The Cho Ren Sha 68k website seems gone. Is there a kind soul who could upload a copy of the game somewhere, for me? Since I am behind the great firewall of China, a service like Rapidgator would be ideal (Yes, sharing files is a nightmare for me). TA to any kind should who is willing to do this.

Anyway, GT's theme in Darius Burst is called "Hello 31337". What's the meaning behind that number?

http://shmuplations.com/zuntatadarius/
Quote:
Ogura: In hindsight, I think it’s fairly safe to say that the keywords in making the tunes were “prime numbers.” Although the way the producer Aoki expressed it and the way I did it were different, the belief that Darius sounds should be one of a kind was completely the same for us. The image I had in mind during the composition of the music was the establishment of a “network without a core” and “multi-dimensional structure,” but when I began thinking about the titles for the music, it became the keywords “prime numbers,” which were basically the words that related to the numbers that don’t have any divisors other than themselves. But there was more than meets the eye to it – a lot. Then I changed the thinking process for a bit, and came up with titles using some English words and numbers that had meaning to them, and then when I researched about them further, I found that those meaningful numbers themselves were prime numbers. It was also the case with G-Darius: these coincidental chemical reactions have been responsible for the creasion of the music for the Darius series (laugh).

According to this interview, the concept of prime numbers was used as an inspiration for DariusBurst tracks, and 31337 is a prime number. Not sure exactly why this specific prime number was chosen though. Perhaps it indeed could be a reference to 1337, since Ogura mentions looking for numbers and names with specific meanings.

Does this firewall block archive.org ? If not, you could use an archived version of the website to get the game : https://web.archive.org/web/20190726062 ... nload.html

Thank you Komrades! I can download everything just fine , but maybe I am overlooking something.

I recalled that the Windows 2017 version is compatible with Windows 10, but once I launch the .exe file (latest.exe), it seems to just crash without even giving me a specific error.
Any cues (e.g. What should I check, before trying to run the game...)?

EDIT: I get an error message saying that the game runs on Windows 8, when I do a compatibility test :oops:
Can you guys confirm that I can forget about playing this on Windows 10? (just to be sure...).

On that note, can anyone explain to me why we can download Battle Traverse from archive.org if it's currently been sold on DLsite? An old version or something?

Archive.org has a lot of things that are too close for comfort. Modern games that are being sold really should not be on there.

2017 seems to run fine in Windows 10 for me (Windows 10 Pro Edition, to be precise) - I'm running it straight from the archive file, if that makes any difference.

Thanks again Birru Zeppeli, but each version gives me the same compatibility problem.
I will try to spend more time with them this week-end, I guess...

:?

Yeah, while many things are there that are clearly of historical interest and are so old as to have limited commercial value any more, what gets uploaded isn't always vetted and you'll sometimes stumble on current commercial content. Support the devs where possible (DLSite is pretty easy to use, it's where I bought my copy of Battle Traverse).

I too have pondered exactly what's said before each boss.

In Saidaioujou, are the Shot and Laser difficulties identical in terms of patterns, density?

Thanks!

It depends on the mode. For the standard arcade modes, yes, Shot and Laser appear to be the same in terms of bullet patterns. However, for the Xbox 360 Arrange Mode where you play as Saya, Shot is Easy, Laser is Medium, and Expert is... Expert. :p
