STYX STRIKES BACK!!

All difficulties and versions are accepted. When submitting score, be sure to note which version was used. This is most important for Thunder Force AC in which the difficulty differs from region to region, so please state if you're using Japan or not. For the record Japan TFAC is more challenging. I suspect most if not all submissions will be 1CC/ALLs so the STAGE entry regards the starting stage(TF3 only). If one did not clear the game please note where the run ended. Default lives and no continues. Auto-fire in TFAC is allowed.

Does my record still count if I used my FSTE's autofire?

Feels like forever since I've played this, looks like I still remembered all of the important stuff. Used MAME's autofire (delay 2). Thanks to gs68 for talking about it on IRC :)

For stage 2,
- There is exactly one fire pillar that doesn't stop firing; it's marked by a fire pit with fireballs on the left.
- Right at the beginning of the high speed section, there's a Shield. It's really in your best interest to get it. (Luckily there's a second one later in the stage if you miss this one.)
- Make sure to grab the Wave powerup here; it works wonders on the rocks.
- For the big laser shooting things, STAY STILL.
And if you get to stage 3,
- For the mines, a trick to avoiding their explosions is to deliberately move close to them, then retreat back.
- I believe there is another Shield here.
- For the boss, lower your speed to 1.

Also, if your version of MAME supports it, or your controller has it, use autofire. TFAC has stupidly weak autofire (as well its sorry excuse for a SNES port).

Analog controls aren't exactly suitable for a game where you move in only 8 directions. What controller are you using?

That's odd; is the D-pad pressure-sensitive (like the DualShock2's)?

Okay roadrunner, seriously, you suck. TWO stages? TFAC and TFIII--especially on NORMAL--aren't that hard. It should take you no more than 1 or 2 days to get the entire game down to a 1CC.

You just have to learn to memorize the stages one by one. I also don't understand how you can lose all your lives at the 2nd stage.
3rd button changes your ship speed, but technically, that should be the first button. since button 1 = change speed, button 2 = shoot, button 3 = shot change.

Well, too bad. I also got bitched out when I complained about TF3 having "unfair" parts.

If you think this is hard, you should try TFII on the X68K.

Find a version of MAME that supports autofire, or use Joy2Key to make an autofire key/button.

Really, there's no shame in using external autofire for this game; I don't want to mash the fire button either.

If you still can't 1CC TFAC with autofire, you're a faggot.

I guess ~1,320,000 should be the maximum to get if I´m not missing something. Saturn version seems to offer more points somehow. But I think at first I´m trying to get a better Mania run. I don´t really understand how The Coop get´s that many points on Mania because you lose thousands of points if you begin on Hydra, so that´s lots of thousands with the Mania multiplier.

Done. :)
Milked the enemies very much in both runs and don´t see further great improvements coming. But I still don´t understand The Coop´s Mania score. I´ll write him a PM and ask how he did that.
