May's challenge is Futari 1.5's Maniac mode with Abnormal Reco. A formidable challenge, it should hopefully produce some fun competition. I realize many people do not have the PCB nor access to one, but I do want to include some newer games in these competitions.

RULES: all defaults, 1 credit, etc.

I played 2 credits today, and my best score was 91mil up to the ST3 midboss. It's pretty tough! I did clear Original mode with Ab Reco (with 250mil), so I think (=hope) it will just take a few days of practice to get used to playing with her in Maniac.

3rd credit of the day.:D

196,226,943 - EOJ - Stage 4 (Boss)



Still quite difficult to control her, but I'm slowly getting the hang of it. The key is using the C shot most of the time, especially during any heavy bullet spreads, and mainly using the A shot only at close range and on the bosses. The A shot is quite handy when you need a quick boost of speed away from a swarm of bullets. Just be sure not to ram into another swarm of bullets in the process!:laugh:

for stage 2, how do you jack up your counter at the start?  and is there a safe-spot on the boss's last pattern?

abnormal reco is a really tough character to use :whyioughtta:

It's harder to score, but that's what makes it a unique challenge. When she's fully powered up, it's actually easier with her than with Normal reco, at least in terms of survival. Her C shot in Stage 5 can just blow through everything.

I have a 400mil ALL vid with her I will upload for you guys in minute.

lol. I tried to play again after coming home late from a night out. Let me tell you, drunken Futari is not a good way to achieve a high score or make any progress whatsoever :laugh:

Yeah, we should decide on something. Obviously this month's competition was another dud. :(

Any other suggestions? Want to do a deathsmiles one? Or Pink Sweets?

how about something that'll get more participants, like donpachi, or dodonpachi?  :D  a MAME-able game would be more popular, i think; and i could do with a good excuse to boot up DDP :oops:

democratic idea: choose whatever ship-type you want, as the DDP table in the forum doesn't separate ship-types.  

nutball idea: score is irrelevant.  winner is the person who can reach the highest stage

I really like this idea, and it means I stand a chance of beating my DDP PB (I tend to score better when I'm not thinking about score). BL-type would be an interesting challenge though. :)

Maybe an old favourite on 'very hard' difficulty? Might be interesting. Might not be.

I vote for default difficulty setting.  I'm a default whore.  But then again, I've got a lot of new PCBs I need to try out, so my participation will be limited.

I have to get an arcade stick for my computer sooner or later. Maybe I'll do it for this competition. :) I love me some DDP.
EDIT: anyone know if this stick is any good - or does anyone have any recommendations?:
