Some fixes, just realized this game does player sides, etc. God, please let there not be Raizing button differences.

Considering adding a field for the multiplier, like Mars Matrix. Would anyone be interested in that? It's not as "necessary" in GW as in MM, but it'd still be nice to have I think.

I might just make a new topic for Score Attack, if I ever do. That would let me split by character, and both threads would just plain look better. Only thing is, nobody really played Score Attack even when the game was popular. If anyone wants to submit Score Attack stuff here to build interest, I wouldn't mind, but I can't add a section for it just yet. If anyone wants to start a board for it themselves, I wouldn't really mind that either.

To be completely honest, I kinda wish arcade GW never existed and there was just the DC version. It's a great port, and it'd make my job way easier. Takumi's DC ports seem like strict upgrades over the arcade versions, similar to Gunspike.

Would also like to open a difficulty 8 section or topic in the future. If I do, I will probably make that a separate topic.

What's the difference between player sides?

No idea so far, I'm just trying to avoid anything resembling the Raiden situation. If it's annoying, I can remove it. Assuming everyone just used 1P side, I think I can safely assume that...

Enemies are slightly weaker when playing 2P side (or you're slightly more powerful). It definitely makes a difference when milking the "orbs" on the train stage (see 5:40 in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wgPieC_Z1Uw).

I guess also it's possible to get better boss-times for stage 5 and 6 than on 1P side. I'm pretty sure it's the same for both Japan board and other versions. My score was 2P-side, and definitely Third_strike's too.

According to TANINI's Giga Wing guide, it's because some enemies are weaker on the 2P side. I don't know why this is a benefit, though. Here's the guide:

Fuck.

Acknowledged. Thanks for the guide.

Willing to bet it works exactly the same in the Dreamcast version.

Dreamcast - Jap. Version

Stuck in the Widerstand

bottino - 25兆4915億2731万5000 - ALL - 1P

An old score of mine.

I plan to revisit this great game in the near future in order to improve my paltry score, but I want to acquire more experience within the danmaku sub-genre first.

Probably will use a different ship as well, just to spice up things a little bit.
