Does "default settings" mean no C full auto?

I just got a pretty good score and I'll be sad panda if I can't submit it ...

First time playing DDP. 1-all wasn't very hard. blind NMNB 2-1, too. died to the first bullet in 2-2, it was pretty silly. with decent knowledge of the game, this should be beatable withn the first 4 stages or something.

Not played DDP in a while, think there's a possibility I might be able to see the loop at least. Here's a score to kick things off:

| SSL | 27,643,620 | http://postimg.org/image/vyiktvmdn/ | 1-6 | C-L | ShmupMAME 4.2

Can probably get an 8-digit score, but I'll post that for starters.

Make sure you post ample seizure warnings if PoDD wins. I'm not even epileptic but I get a bad headache/eye strain even watching streams of the game.

lots of early gunbird specials for DDP I see, anyway heres my run:

| ASV | 33,901,490 | http://postimg.org/image/gnyp25v4v/ | 1-ALL | C-L | MAME 0.150


edit: there are no good choices, everything except Mazinger Z is lame + I haven't played + is on lunatic modes, I voted for Mazinger Z but I doubt it'll win. Well whatever, I said I'd get into ZUN one day, why not start now?

We should let the lowest scorer choose the next poll :P

I'm so terrible at this game I don't even know why I voted for it. I hadn't played in a few months and just out of the blue I had my best run yet, reaching the stage 5 boss, but with a score so puny I won't even bother posting for the moment. I can't chain shit, captain.
Also I spent most of the day playing Kamui and was mildly surprised when my laser didn't cancel bullets here and I died at the very first enemy shot.

Voted for PoDD. Out of the Touhous I played, PoFV is easily one of my favorites, so I can only hope this one is just as good.

Took a while for me to realize that Ship C was best for scoring. Used A-L for the longest time before that.

Updated the OP for scores so far. Apparently, everyone uses Ship C :mrgreen:

No, A-L is the highest scoring.

This.

Played properly, A-L has the highest score potential because its thin shot and fast laser movement allows for the most flexibility in chaining and controlling chaining. The problem is that you have to actually know what you're doing to use it because it is a thin shot type. C type is just easier to get an early loop score with if you're not good at chaining otherwise, because using the spread shot in popcorn dense areas like stage 5 will automatically make long chains without requiring much effort other than not dying/bombing, and obviously is easier to clear enemies with so you won't need to worry about bombing yourself out of tricky spots as much.

:lol: I didn't write that but that wishful thinking has convinced me to consider Namco shmups before ZUN in the future; I can't even think of a single Namco shmup I've played actually.

This is more or less along the lines of what I was thinking :)

Yeah mazinger z is fun but you will spend days resetting stage 1 once you realize how the scoring system works. Pistol daimyo is just good clean "bad game' style fun. Perhaps to help with the variety a bit, maybe random.org a player in the top 50% as the third nominator?

Well. Looks like I'll be getting some Touhou practice soon enough anyway, judging by the poll for the next game.
