Hi all. I'm Zach, and I think I recently messed up my PVM, so I thought I'd join the forum that Google links me to for nearly every CRT-related question I have! I mostly play Super Mario World rom hacks that are of the Kaizo difficulty.

I submitted my first thread to Hardware yesterday, but I haven't seen it get approved yet. This isn't a "what's taking so long" question AT ALL, but I'm genuinely curious if I submitted the thread correctly. I don't see anything in my user cp that indicates that I submitted anything, but I just don't know how the cp displays posts awaiting moderation (if it does at all). Thank you! I really look forward to chatting here about my PVM issues!

Hello,

Used to be member here many years ago early 00's couldn't recover my old account and i must've created a new one and never used it
as life took over but have got back into games through the Psikyo collections on Switch. Mainly interested in older games many of which seem to get a new lease of life on modern systems which is great.

Hi, I'm new here and new to Shmup's too. But recently I got interested in this kind of genre, I've only played R-Type, Gradius and Sonic Wings on Snes (pretty much a newbie on the surface).

So, I'm looking for where I could start my "jorney" into this properly, cause there are countless games to play! (also, sorry if my english is bad, I'm not a native speaker!). :mrgreen:

Hey there!!

Before I started playing shmups, I had a weird relationship with video games. Most of my friends played them, and even my parents played them, so I was raised in a game-positive environment, but I never connected with the medium. I played some games, mostly Flash games online and cheap plug-n-play arcade consoles, but nothing really clicked with me. However, when I played Deep Space Waifu, (yes, I know, don't laugh :roll: ) I instantly connected with the medium. After learning that game was a bullet hell shoot em up, I searched out Touhou, remembering it too was a bullet hell, and I instantly became attached to the series. While originally I only really played Touhou, I started to broaden my horizons. Harmful Park was the first horizontal shmup I played, and I enjoyed it immensely.

As far as my favorite shoot em up game, it's hard to narrow it down to just one. As I'm a big PC Engine fan, I absolutely love Magical Chase. The visuals are outstanding, but not distracting, the controls are fun and easy to use, and the shop system spices up gameplay, reminding me of a similar feature in Fantasy Zone. Considering I'm still quite new to the genre, I'm not very good at Radiant Silvergun or Ikaruga, but I adore both games, of course. I'll always respect every game in the Touhou series for really pushing me towards the shoot em up genre, and my favorite game throughout the series is probably Phantasmagoria of Flower View, since I'm obsessed with competitive split screen shoot em ups. Speaking of, Twinkle Star Sprites is also a favorite of mine.

Hopefully this post wasn't overly wordy. :)

Hi fellow shmuppers :D

Thanks to Ikaruga I've gotten into shmups at the end of last year and have been hooked ever since.
I find it kind of fascinating to have found a new hobby I like so much at the ripe age of 35.
So far I've been able to get a 1-all on Dragon Blaze and 1CCs on Esprade (arcade mode), Aka to Blue (on mobile) and Mushihimesama (Maniac Mode).
Kind of jumping in between Espgaluda 2, Futari and DFK right now to decide what to tackle next. Any suggestions?

Cheers (or Prost) from Germany,
miwa

Hi,

also someone from germany here. My name is Frank and I am 35 years old and play games since I'm little.
Always liked the more "retro" games with sometimes just "simpler" gameplay. Like Pinball, Fighters and Shmups.
Enjoying playing these games on various platforms, at the moment: PC, PS4, Xbox One, Switch, RG300, Mobile.

Best Regards
Frank/metalnarf

Hi, I'm a game developer, working in the industry since 93, on the technical side. I'm now developing a kind of Shmup, not really a regular one, with some twists :) I've played to the very first Shmups when I was young, like Space Invaders, Galaga, later 1942, Xenon 2 and Alpha Mission 2 on Neo Geo.

Hi,

I'm living in Sydney.

Gyruss has been my favourite game since I was a lad.

Have seen shmups.system11.org popping up a lot in my searches and wondered what it was about, Shoot 'em up's, now I get it!

Cheers
Richard

Yo, 'sup y'all?

I think I'll mostly be here to do some reading (and learning!), but an account may come in handy so why the heck not?

Hello everyone. I’m living in Kentucky. I used to live in louisville near downtown, but i moved back with my family out in the country due to COVID-19. I’m a shmup enthusiast returning to this forum after a long absence... my favorite items are my TG16, turbobooster, with Turbo Everdrive, MVS board with Sonic Wings 2&3, Psikyo Sengoku Blade PCB, and Chipped Sega Saturn with a stack of CDRs. I’m relatively young for this scene, only 24 years old, and have been previously been put off from other communities for certain crazy people bashing me and calling me a hipster incessantly for liking “old” stuff. This forum on the other hand seems really chill, and i think i’ll fit in better here than the ridiculous facebook groups. :)

Hey folks. Mainly here for hardware chat as a PVM owner but I did import a Saturn just to play Salamander Deluxe Pack Plus (more specifically Salamander 2) so I guess shmups are pretty good too.

Hi, my name is Marina. I think my first shooter had to be Galaga on those plug-n-play TV systems. I got into Gradius and Touhou in high school, and after an 8 year hiatus I'm back on the STG train.

Currently learning Gunbird 2 and Crimzon Clover World Ignition. I start biting it around stage 3 in each of these games. I'm pretty new to danmaku style games compared to stuff like Lifeforce (which probably used to be my favorite), and Touhou's super-slow bullets never properly prepared me for this kind of dodging.

hello

I got in to shmups via DariusBurst Chronicles on the Vita, in particular the DLC - the majority of which i had never heard of (pretty much everything except the sega franchises were unknown to me). Since i started to get in to the genre i got an X360 and am trying to improve my skills.

I have a single 1cc on Mushihimesama Futari novice mode (first attempt!) which i know is a joke but now trying to 1cc the real thing. I am practising each level/boss until i can no miss/no bomb with confidence. I have Ketsui on order which was my favourite ship from the DBCS DLC.

I also play other classics on the Vita via retroarch in tate mode (Battle Garegga, Batsugun, EspRaDe etc.) but this is more casual than the 360 activity due to the small screen.

Thanks

Hi everyone, happy to finally make an account and participate after being a lurker. Recently I’ve gone down the rabbit hole on restoring and modifying retro gaming consoles. There have been numerous times where I’ve done research on a particular device that has brought me to a thread here on the forums. Looking forward to chatting!

Greetings! Good to know there are still forums out there in this age of social media. I'm a shump fan and a hobbyist game developer. I'm a fan of the Touhou series and Danmaku Unlimited games. I used to play games like R-type and Lifeforce back in the days. Currently working on a shump which I plan to sharing in the near future. Nice to meet you all!

Hi! Xyanide is my first and only shooter I played. The game is fantastic and the cutscenes are even more awesome. After finding the rubber band to get the Xbox disc to open again, I been practicing to get to Ace difficulty. This a a game not well-known so it feels lonely to play it myself.

Other stuff: I played Pokemon, well I used to. Sword and Shield looked awful so I never bought them. Also, I'm doing some comic art as well.

Hi, I'm Nik and I've just joined because I enjoy reading and talking about shmups. I'm 42 years old and have been playing computer and video games my whole life. I've always had a soft spot for shmups, but recently this love has grown massively. I can't say exactly why this happened but I guess it has to do with being burnt out from other genres and having gained greater appreciation for the lean, straight-to-the-Point game play loops. I don't mind dying over and over as long as I make some progess or beat my own shitty score. I always try to get as close to 1CC as possible and have this mental thing where I can't get myself to press continue, even if that means I will be stuck in a level for ages or even forever.....I've been following forum discussions and watching endless videos about shmups in recent last months, and thanks to all the good info and recommendations, I've been able to learn and catch up on a lot of great games I wasn't even aware of. Now I try to get my hands on every good shmup I can, and have built a collection with enough variety as to never get bored. I like both old school and bullet hell styles, vertical or horizontal....
The first shmups I remember playing were on C64 - 1942, R-Type, Airwolf..stuff like that. Nowadays I´m a console peasant and mainly play on Ps4 and Switch, but want to expand to other formats ....time for a new PC and hopefully a Polymega, when it comes out and has been shown to work well enough.
Some of my favourite games at the moment are Dariusburst CS, Darius Gaiden, ESPrade, Ketsui, Psyvariar Delta, Devil Engine and Battle Garegga Rev.16. Fixed up my old PS Vita today just to play Dariusburst CS on the go - sooo nice. So thanks for all the tips and advice....I´ll be around.

Hello, I'm new. I have browsed this forum many times over the years looking at the arcade stuff. I'm not into vertical/horizontal shooters (shmups) but I have fond memories of Galaga in my youth and Einhander in my teens. I joined mostly to for the tech stuff people are making and enjoying. The shumps forum being one of the last bastions of the old age information sharing. My favorite video games are fighting games and beat'em ups. Final Fantasy Tactics is my favorite game and the N64 is my least favorite console. Hopefully I'll contribute something meaningful despite not using forums all that much.

Hopefully everyone is doing ok despite these crazy times, the year 2020 is a blowup, and have a great day.

Hi friends! I'm a fan of shmups and came here to find info on what's good to play. I was a fan of this style back in the Dreamcast era but haven't kept up with it. I recently got a good emulation setup on my main TV with a simple arcade stick so now I'm hunting for some good shmups to get back into it.

Hello everyone! I'm Rudie Radio Waves. I'm friendly, I'm from Italy and I enjoy occasionally torturing myself through very hard shmups! I'm not very good at them, but I'm getting better.
I also enjoy art and media of any kind.

Hello everyone,

My name is Wes and I have recently found the deep rabbit hole that is retro gaming using RGB. I started by wondering how to hook up all my old consoles to a flat-screen tv, now many hours of reading, watching, and a lot of money later I have finally made an account on this forum which guided me along the way.
