But it still isn't as good as the missiles.

Haha, thanks. I basically ignored medals after stage 3, and once I died there, my playing was a lot more nervous and improvised, with en even heavier emphasis on survival. There's not much of a "second place" for collecting medals, so if you miss even one in a stage, its better to focus on the 2000pt powerups when given a choice. I can get perfect for stages 1&2 so far, but don't really try after that.

This evening pinball outing really cut into my practice... tomorrow I must break 8m, bahhhhhh...

I realize its a little late, but here is a .143u6 mameplus build with the lagless patches applied. It has savestate support for air gallet and can do autofire etc.

I'm not going very far into the game, but I have no problem being very aggressive in going after medals in the first few stages.

And going after powerups (at full power) in the middle of the screen instead of a line of gold (2000 point) powerups about to leave the screen didn't look like a good decision to me (there weren't any enemies onscreen when that happened).

Anyway this sure is some sour grapes on my part, but I think there's definitely a lot of room for improvement. Once you get more familiar with the game, then that shouldn't be much problem. I hear you about being nervous - even the piddling stage 1 boss's first salvo (in its final form) still can scare me a bit.

Oh, definitely. I mainly uploaded the run because I wanted to learn about mame recording, and I was asked to. Re: inexplicably avoiding medals, often I did that just to stay on the safe side. Missile allows you a lot of leeway with positioning and all. Once I lost a single life I played super-conservative in hopes of at least getting the 3m extend bonus, but alas, that stupid plane in stage 6...

Trap, I think I'm going to have to step out. I thought my problem with last STGT was the games but I just don't like the format, and besides I'm really busy with clearing the Touhou games and college prep right now.

I liked this game. I liked it so much I stayed up playing it and woke up a couple of hours past the score submission deadline with my hands still resting on my stick. My arcade stick.

I will try to do better this week.

I didn't get to play this much. I lost power for a couple of days and have been busy with kids and school shit. Hopefully I have more time for the new game. This was a pretty good game though that I will have to revisit sometime.
