Guardian Force still has severe input lag in MAME at the time of writing this, most of which is still there even when playing on an actual ST-V. Trap15 has a patch available here that removes some lag, feel free to apply it at your leisure. Saturn port appears to have an equal amount of lag to the patched ST-V version, needs confirmation.

trap15 - 5027650 - Stage D - ST-V

P2 side.

Got owned near the end of the boss, it's too scary and P2's red bomb is too shitty, I think I dumped 3 bombs on it out of fear and it barely helped. By the way, your score entry stuff should include the player side I think.

Added.

Everything the P2 tank has is shitty compared to P1, far as I can tell. Maybe the yo-yo is more effective in certain situations due to it returning faster, but that's about it.

I like Red's normal shot better due to the extra range, and Green's constant bouncing is more useful than it being stuck out in front of you forever like P1. Yellow's changing of the secondary lasers to fixed-direction makes it a bit shitty, Purple's puffs being wide is extremely awful, and and Blue's slight extra spread is basically pointless. The bombs seem mostly worse overall though, which is a shame.

I'll probably go back to P1, but I really do like Red and Green on P2 a good bit.

trap15 - 6846780 - P1 - Stage F - ST-V

Replay, from stream: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ApVvnV267qI

Really coming along, this run was my first time into Stage E and Stage F, so I had no idea what I was doing pretty much. E seems not-awful to do well aside from some cheap stuff and the fairly-hard boss, F I have no idea because I barely saw it.

Will probably stick with P1, the extra damage for P1's red and P1's better bombs are really worth it, even if it makes my runs a bit less consistent.

An immensely uneven run, salvaged only by nabbing those elusive Stage F bonuses at the 30-minute mark.


EDIT: Hooray for 11th hour chain-drops. The quest continues. :roll:

EDIT#2: I can live with this.

Removed player sides, because seriously, what do you have to be smoking to play as the P2 tank?

Nice job on the B boss. Another good replay all-around.

Oh, how precious little I knew about Guardian Force until recently. Everything appears to be more-or-less finalized now (famous last words :roll: ) Of course, if anyone sees a way that those milking routines could get any more anal, drop me a line. :mrgreen:

Replay isn't too terrible, apart from a dropped 50K chip here, a missing 10K cannon there, some embarrassing flailing around at the beginning of Stage G... My showing at the later-game roulette felt better than usual, at least. (unless you count that 120K bonus I was denied during the Stage E boss fight, fml.) I'd say this was it for me, but I'm a master of changing my mind, so who knows?

trap15 - 9,078,010 - ALL - ST-V (De-Lag)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kwr1BtNSEnE

Wow I can't believe that happened, fuck. I had been thinking I've still got so many credits to go before I'll be capable of 1CC, but here we are. I think I want to keep playing still, I think if I just carry purple through to stage G I can get probably 11m easy. Thought out my route and there's no good reason I couldn't use purple through stage F, so might as well.

What a good game.

It was the first run of the night! I'm pretty sure I couldn't follow it up, so I just ended it on that haha.

Thanks, me too :) I forgot that this game is a dream to play.

trap15 - 11,243,860 - ALL - ST-V (De-Lag)
(replay coming soon)

At last, I'm done with this game. Was real good fun, just lots of places I was losing focus. Really jammed out some runs today and this was the result, quite happy with it.

Y'all gotta play this game more, for real.

Hats off to ya, Trap! Will definitely check that run out later.

Much as I yearn for competition, I can't say I blame you for hanging it up at this juncture... it takes a special type of crazy to even want to push it to 12 and above. :P
