Hi all!
I'm a relatively new shmup player and I am trying to complete my first 1CC of R-Type arcade (World Rom). I have manage to find some pretty good strategies for most levels and bosses just by reading these great forums and watching runs on youtube, but I am struggling to find a consistent method in defeating the stage 5 boss.

This boss seems to be absolutely random in it's flight patterns and speed, I have read you can manipulate it's speed depending on your ships starting position but this does not seem to work for me. More often than not the boss comes charging at me at full speed usually making it's way to the top left position. With this pattern I struggle to dodge it's projectiles and most times will be hit. If I do manage to get the slow pattern this fight becomes significantly easier.

So basically I'm asking what methods I can try to receive the slower pattern and if I do receive the faster pattern what are my best strategies at this point.

Thanks heaps in advance!
