Long time lurker, first time poster.
Just thought I'd contribute my score on Metal Black here, because I'm really happy with it (i'm really not a good player by any means)
I might post some scores on some other games, but they're definitely not as great. :oops:

T4N3 - 580.400 - All - Shmupmame

Run done live on Twitch, replay here.

My goal is to get over 600k, once it's done I'll probably move on to Border Down :D

Since WR uses autofire, there's no reason to hold myself back. :oops:

T4N3 - 652.820 - ALL - Shmupmame (Autofire ON)

Less than 100k between this and WR, could have reached the 670k extend if I had a better Bonus-B and did better milk on Omega Zone.
(didn't clock it and killed it a bit too fast)

Good stuff T4N3, I just finished watching the archive. I knew you'd be able to do it. :>
Onward and upward? :3

Wow, just when I thought I had the western record, a new challenger appears :!:

I thought I would stop after this score but the surprise I felt when I saw T4N3's score and replay has encouraged me to make this the only game I play.

In fact, since the year began, other commitments haven't given me a change to play shmups at all actually and I was thinking about dropping the genre/forum all together. However, Metal Black's atmosphere still has me hooked.

Here is a breakdown of my score:
( I hit pause at the end of each of the following to write these down)

End 1: 52,590
Bonus time left: 14 sec
Beginning 2: 81,590
End 2: 169,080
End 3: 254,440
Bonus time left: 29 seconds
Beginning 4: 313,410
Beginning 5: 423,620
Beginning 6: 493,160
Final score: 613,100

Aleksei - 613,100 - All - Shmupmame

I'm looking at YOU, T4N3. 8)

Well done, first member to crack the 600k barrier. Tried watching a bit here and it looks good. Nice score heading into the final stage.
Kudos to Aleksei as well.

Bonus time left: 17 sec

End 2: 172,890
End 3: 256,750
Bonus time left: 23 seconds
Beginning 4: 309,750
Beginning 5: 425,830
Beginning 6: 492,150
Final score: 625,190

Aleksei - 625,190 - All - Shmupmame

Finally hit the 700k milestone! :P

T4N3 - 709.440 - All - Shmupmame

Can be improved slightly with better bonus, last boss, and milk Ghost until timeout, but I'm not sure if I want to go for that, hehe. :oops:

Thanks to BIL and Limbrooke, and also Icarus, Aleksei and Aquas for the motivation.

Always failed when beam-dueling with Daio :cry: , though I can get a better score if I didn't skip the Over Ride stage.

The trick with Daio/Gishiin is to proactively, and repeatedly, hit the trash balls with an L3 beam. You'll bust straight through them before they can fire theirs, doing a chunk of damage to the beetle in the process. Recharge to lvl3 while the beetle gathers a new ball, and repeat the L3 beamings until done. It's a groove thing. ^_~

Touched this game now, and this. Unfortunately I mash Z button for fire instead for A during Blackout stage when the enemy counter was 5. :lol:

Speaking of mashing, I didn't use autofire - pls correct ;3

Or speaking of not mashing, rather! For fellow non-autofirers, remember: pump don't pound!

Blinge - 455,510 - ALL - ?? - ShmupMAME

Does this count as autofire: I had my 3rd button on my arcade stick with turbo on for just holding in downtimes.
But the 1st main shot button was normal, and gives a higher rate of fire anyway by default, with the on/off tapping rhythm.

Guess I'll call that no autofire.

The game might not be able to handle the autofire rate you set. A proper setting is significantly faster than rhythmic tapping. I assume you're using ShmupMAME v4.2? Try setting the rate to 1 or 5.

No that's something subtly different ;3 I definitely find a nice steady pumping rhythm gets ace results and a steady stream! In Metal Black!
