Lovely stuff. Zaarock's got skills. There does seem to be a decent amount of depth to it. Reducing your bombing and dodging more as you gain confidence so you can get the 999 chains. So yeah, lag's a biggie dodging patterns like that (and that's just stage two!)

Unfortunately I can't help but think that if Tanoshimasu could've improved it, they would've. It's not like they knocked this up in five minutes. I don't think they'll get back to you and say "oops, sorry, we forgot to optimise the settings in Unity".
The scoring system is quite similar to Daifukkatsu 1.51 (not 1.5). Chain through the stages, bomb on the bosses for score.

I think the bomb system is closer to Akai Katana Shin than anything else. You basically have the katana throw in that game: gauge instead of 'bomb' stock, player doesn't have invincibility, they generate score items while passing through enemy hitboxes and the player wants to pick up the items as quickly as possible. That's even down to items being drawn over the enemies in both games and Type-II being able to aim katanas while Type-I can't. Using on bosses is more of a coincidence of them having a big hitbox & no reason not to use up chain at the end of each stage. Just like AK using them on a cluster of enemies boosts the current chain a lot so you don't need to start in 999 to reach it mid bomb.

Good points about the comparison to Akai Katana Shin!

That's no coincidence. That's game design. ;)

Bit of random information, I had assumed the Aka & Blue poster would be JB2 size but it's actually international A1, if anyone else is looking to frame Exa posters. I assume they will all be this size @Shou ?

Cool. I've ordered a frame.

Really like the software kits by the way. Fits nicely on the shelf, all the artwork is rolled, no extra poster tubes to store.

I'm skipping Akyrios btw. Have barely scratched the surface with A&B. Very tempted by Shikhondo though.

Your control panel looks great, but the sentences the characters say on the top marquee are (incorrectly) horizontally mirrored.

@Shou, how are high scores saved on this thing? If you remove the cart, boot the motherboard without a cart, then reinsert the cart (when it's off of course), are the high scores gone? If you switch cart slots will that clear high scores as well?

We already lost one set of scores by doing something wrong. Don't really want to lose another set.

That's terrible. :cry:

You would assume it saves on the cart and that it would not be erased when removed.

Would love to hear Shous side of this story.
Somehow I doubt you will.

I'd rather we didn't get into developer hearsay or second hand news and just got a first hand update please Shou
This got linked to on Shmups:



It's not too bad. Surprise, contracts need to be looked over. Business is pretty cutthroat. Anyway, some amusing details in there.

Pretty unprofessional that they'd post that publicly. Personally I couldn't care less about contractual squabbles. The only people interested are those who have been slagging off the system since day one for no particular reason.
