Hello to all,

Sorry to take on your time, but I was wondering if some of you might have access to some of the freeware shmups from Weva. They seem to have disappeared from the net entirely:

http://weva.style.coocan.jp/

the forums has made passing mention of SOLL DEGA and I would also be interested to know if MELISSA could be found.

Should a lucky soul have them, could they please share them?

Many thanks.

Yes. Sadly nothing on that front. I managed to snag the new version of gstyle but nothing else.

Everything has been aggressively pulled off.

There are vids of soll dega floating around though...

The page is still being updated - have you tried finding a way to contact the admin to ask if he's willing to repost them?

One guy was able to upload the 'new' version of G-STYLE, which had more of an original look, instead of being a Gradius/R-Type game (which is on Gradius Home World).
http://www.mediafire.com/file/8vgnhwyksg0cc8i/G_STYLE_R_New_Version.zip/file

However, I cannot launch it at all, it always spits out an error message with DirectDraw, even with various changes to compatibility and such. Also, it has no music. There apparently was a CD version, which had music, but that's only a hearsay, Marirsa100 edited the music in, when they uploaded the complete playthrough of it, which is where the link originated from.

So I spent some time figuring out how to get this running, just for fun I guess. lol.

And I got it working on my Windows 10 PC! You need to run it through this program: https://sourceforge.net/projects/dxwnd/

And run the program as administrator. It's actually a really neat program that should be helpful for all sorts of old windows games. Tons of settings to play with.

DxWnd doesn't work at all for me, it still spits out the error message. And yes, I am still using Win7, because I don't have my new PC that long and I won't update to Win10.

That's the error I'd get before messing with DxWnd. Did you try different setting? Like manual dx 1-6, window and resolution settings, etc... I would guess it should be possible to get working using the tool.

I can’t test this game sadly.

To anyone who have, might you have come across any author contact info?
