Welcome! I know there's an IRC channel where a number of the folks hang out, but I'm afraid I'm not sure about Discord or other chat clients.

Mods: would it be worth stickying this thread?

How's it goin everybody! Finally decided to join this forum after lurking for a few years.

My first Shmup was Star Fox (If you can call it a shmup) followed by Raiden Trad on the Snes.

I'm a big fan of 16-bit and 32-bit era gaming in general so SNES, Arcade, PS1 and even some Turbografx and Genesis games. If i could find an affordable FM-Towns or a Sharp X68000 i'd probably own one of those too.

My favorite shmups of all time include Gradius V, Gradius Gaiden, R-Type Leo, Star Fox (Again, don't know if that one counts lol), Xexex, Strikers 1945 II, Batsugun and Giga Wing.

Hey guys, I'm new to the forums and I've been playing shmups for about two years now so I'm pretty new to the genre too (compared to most people here I would assume). I began with Touhou 7 to get me started and went all the way to 11, but I eventually moved on to the popular steam games such as Mushihimesama, Dodonpachi Daifukkatsu, Crimzon Clover, and Ikaruga. Mushihimesama Arrange is undeniably my favorite right now, but I look forward to exploring new games with you all 8)

Hey guys,

Long time gamer, it's the oldest thing I know :) Recently have been dabbling in modding and RGB. I have a software background but lately more and more I'm wanting to go the hardware route and that's where modding is coming in for me. It's filling a void in a hobby I love.

Thanks!

Hey guys, new member here. I joined a while ago, but it took me a while to just absorb all the information going around this place.

I'm 29, have been playing game since I was like 3 years old, and actually I'm not that big of a shmup fan. I used to play lots of Astro Warrior on the SMS, but always preferred other genres. Way too much trial and error for my taste, I guess. I do find myself playing stuff like Cho Aniki, Panorama Cotton and Undeadline from time to time though :P

I joined because I'm currently developing a shmup and this place became sort of a gold mine for knowledge. I'm also curious to see what my game will turn out like.

Also, pardon me if my messages get a little confusing. English is not my first language, so weird stuff tends to pop up from time to time.

Welcome to the forum! :D

Kiwi : I can relate starting out with Touhou too! It's a good way to be introduced to shmups, as long as you try other types of shmups as well and see what your tastes in this genre exactly are.

NitroFrost : There's an entire section of the forum dedicated to hardware stuff so you should feel comfortable there!

juju : Oh nice, I look forward to seeing what kind of game you are working on! Don't hesitate to post stuff about it in the dev section, and maybe even a demo if you have one.

Hi all. I'd never played shooting games until last month, but after trying out a bunch of them in MAME, I was hooked, and finally completed my first 1cc tonight with R-Type Leo. It is a very exciting process, and I'd love to repeat it with more difficult challenges overtime. I'm also thinking about creating a youtube channel to upload my playthroughs with commentary as a nice, gradual way to track progression. Apart from STGs, I'm a big fan of action RPGs, and enjoy rhythm games and platformers as well. I suppose that's all, really. If you have any questions, feel free to PM me. This place seems cool. Nice to meet you!

Hi everybody. I'm new to the forum so I thought I'd introduce myself. I'm mainly into the Raiden series and spinoffs pre-Raiden 3. My main hobby is modding consoles for things like RGB, region switches etc.

Hello everyone,

My name is Jose Luis (Tatsujin09). I come from Spain and I’m a big fan of the olders shoot’m ups from the 80’s. My favourite ones are Terra Cresta, R-Type and 1942. I own the original PCBs, and I play them once in a while with my supergun.

In console I like the Sega Saturn great ports as Batsugun, Battle Garegga, Strikers 1945, Guardian Force and Blast Wind...among others.

Hi everyone! I am kind of new to retro gaming. During this year I have taken the step from emulation to the "real deal" by reacquiring some of my childhood consoles such as the Mega Drive. A couple of months ago I bought my first PVM and have fallen in love with scanlines! I especially like how good late-era-2D-games look, such as Symphony of the night and Street Fighter 3. This forum has been a great resource already, so I figured I'd register and show my support!

Hello, everyone. I'm letmetrythisname / lmttn. I forgot I had already made an account on here, actually. I'm not very good at shmups, but I really enjoy them (and arcade games in general). The shmups I've spent the most time on are probably the first two or three Gradius games as well as some Battle Garegga and Dodonpachi.

welcome, new members.
I'll soon give my feedback to the devs that want to make a significant addition because of their love for the genre.

Howdy, I'm Josh, and as an avid collector of many an arcade PCB, I thought it relevant to join!

I make home made cabinets, mainly because I live in Australia, and that remoteness makes it hard to find parts.

At the moment my beloved CPS2 version of Progear No Arashi is in my sit-down upright, and Espgaluda is on my cocktail cab.

The only boards that are giving my trouble are my V-V and Dogyuun PCB's, and both have a similar problem of an unstable, shaky image. I've tested on both and LCD and CRT monitor, and the result is the same. So... gotta fix those boards one day.

New member here. My favorite shmup is Ikaruga. I’ve played a lot of em and plan on playing some new ones soon. I plan on buying a Japanese Saturn for Radiant Silvergun and DoDonPachi. Currently I mainly play Ikaruga on PS4.

Newbie. I won't be getting any highscores, but I enjoy SHMUPs. I'm currently playing Blue Revolver and Ikaruga. Crimzon Clover is cool, but I wish the star visibility/count wasn't so excessive. Apparently the option to tone that down was a feature in the original doujinshi game, but I guess the publisher wanted to include it for the retail release. I see that a few manga were scanlated here. I scan manga, interviews, etc. as a side hobby, so I can provide raws if someone wants to work on something. Just shoot me a message.

Hello

My name is Alex, I grew up in Toronto and spent almost every weekend at the Arcades. I loved it. I once had a ton of Atari stuff, I had some real rarities but sadly most of it go ruined in a flood, including my iRobot Logic Board which to this day still hurts.

Right now I collect a lot of old Macs and am still very much into gaming but not so much the new stuff, I love the old games. What can I say, I was born in '68 so …

Currently I am getting into the Sony KV line of displays and maybe here and there I will pick some up if they are cheap. I don't have a ton of room in the house, 3 kids and all but if I can I will try to get at least one or two more. One day, these maybe really hard to get. Oh and for some reason, the Sony CRTs are by far my favorites.

Yeah that's about it for now, I am still discovering this forum and all the amazing conversations that I found here, hey that's why I signed up! :)

Cheers!
—Alex

Hi guys, I've been using the site for a long time now in lurker-mode, but I figured i should start contributing something if possible. :) I've been playing games since the 80's and still tend to keep playing the old school stuff (8/16/32-bit era) including arcade games.

HELLO,
HELP
NO ONE WILL APPROVE MY POSTS. IT'S BEEN OVER A DAY AND I'M STILL WAITING!

UPDATE:
Thanks for the approval and hello everyone. Happy to finally be here lol. I'm new to retro gaming specifically, but not to modding or emulation.

I have retro consoles from PS2 (mod), Wii (mod) Xbox (mod) 360 (mod) retro emulation...
I have a hdbox pro I'm gonna try using for my ps2 on flat screen. Just got it but got it for a KILLER deal. Reviews were pretty good for it, if you can't afford framemeister lol. Guess testing will tell. ..
I have LOTS of gaming accessories for pretty much all systems as well.
But enough on my stuff for now.

I mainly joined for one reason only but I can see me using this forum for other reasons. :-)
Why am I here?
I seek help on modding my crt TV for scart.
Now, before you roll your eyes, I've watched all the videos and read many posts and I'm not asking you to spoon feed me answers. I've got skills in soldering and I've worked with electronics. I would not consider myself a novice.

I posted a thread about my Toshiba TV....any one who I could bounce my idea off of would be greatly beneficial. Please help if you can.

Thanks again and greetings everyone!

What's up guys? Glad to be here, been lurking the past year a bit.

I kind of got back into gaming just a few years ago after rescuing some old stuff my younger brother and I kept at our parents' house (Unfortunately my Missile Command machine needs some work and the keys are missing. I used to have it in my college dorm room!). I found great enjoyment of finally putting all these systems back together. While playing through these games again i found I enjoyed playing shmups the most, that return to simplicity yet still challenging gameplay was very refreshing.

I remember skipping my bus home from Jr. High to go the Pizza Hut across the street to play Galaga, as well as seeing the game for the first time in 1982 when I was 5. I remember Satan's Hollow and how it freaked me out (I would later start a band called Satan's Hallow based off the game, a band that I had just recently broke up), I remember how 1943 blew me away when it was first released. Before I had an NES I was able to play Astro Warrior on Master System, so that's what I asked for for Christmas. I received the NES instead, and the first game I rented was Life Force. I was jealous of those who has the TG16 that could play Blazing Lazers and Super Star Soldier, and Genesis owners who could play Gaiares. I got the Super Nintendo though, so at least I had Gradius 3 and Axelay. My first ever imports were Marvel Vs. Street Fighter and Radiant Silvergun for Saturn, along with the Action Replay to play them. I loved the Dreamcast, but shmups for me never happened there.

So i re-bought another Xbox 360, and with that I discovered some of the great shmups on there that I wasn't aware of when first owned the system. I hadn't heard yet heard of the developer Cave actually until I played Guwange on XBLA. After I talked to a friend about getting into to these again, he gave me his 360 SFIV arcade stick since he got a new one, so that made playing shmups even better.

My brother then gave me a MAME disc with 1500 or so arcade games on it, so I ran it on my laptop and bought some $15 arcade sticks of ebay. So I can play most of those now, but there's still a few I haven't. I don't use MAME exactly, just this disc.

Unfortunately my brother just passed away this summer at the age of 37. The last time I saw him was at Galloping Ghost Arcade in Chicago this past Christmas. His girlfriend gave me back my Saturn that he'd been borrowing the last 16 years. My latest purchase has been Soukygourentai.

I also recently made a Japanese account on PSN and downloaded Einhander, Harmful Park, Gaia Seed, etc.

Now I need tips on how to score in Battle Garegga.

One more thing, can anyone identify the shmup at 20:25 in this video? Thanks!
