Cool. I take it we can only post scores achieved this month right?

Think I'm gonna go for B type for sheer craziness. :)

Quick couple of credits tonight and they weren't too bad considering I've not touched DDP in ages.  I have entirely forgotten what to do on the stage 5 boss though, and got creamed in between bombs.

freddiebamboo - 40,424,720 - 1-5 - C-S

The inp is recorded if anyone needs it, but I wouldn't recommend bothering to watch it.

No max chain on the scoreboard jpj?

First and last scorepost from someone who'd rather be playing Gokujyou Parodius.

Icarus - 55,170,800 - Stage 2-1 - C-S - 392HIT



Second credit of two, on the first and only intended day of play. While I can still remember how to full-chain st2, and most of st5, I made a mess of them here, and don't really want to try anyway.

I expect to be beaten comprehensively by the Cave experts, so do your worst. ^_-

Crappy input provided for Wolf0.106.

From your namakoHQ posts it seems you've been over doing it on overly cute/disturbing konami games.

I prescribe chaining, pink bullets, a good bomb multiplier and, most importantly, a respectable score at this game ;)

I'll pass. I've had enough of enemy chaining games for one lifetime, thanks. ^_-

Played this game to death many moons ago, and I don't intend on taking it up again. This was more of a curiosity thing, to see if I could still hit the loop. Besides, cute/disturbing is goooooooood. Everyone needs a dose of 'weird' every now and again - too much 'serious' is bad for the health.

Good luck to everyone in this month's competition.

haha, me too.  i've had the board for about a year, and only just got round to playing it.  chaining seems harder than DOJ.  or is that just me?

chaining sucked balls in this run, and i don't think i had max bomb bonus at any time :|
but i did make it up to the section just before the last boss :)

toby - 65,486,810 - 2-3 - C-S (376 max hit)

No missed (one bomb) stage 6 (minus boss) for the first time ever, and got a pretty decent chain from it also. Pretty crap run otherwise, but got the no-miss bonus in 2-1 and 2-2.

And now, entering punkdom:

RGC - 34,381,040 - 1-6 - C-S (158 max hit)

Summary: Check out the terrible chaining! :D I think the only reason the score was as "high" as this was because I maintained max bombs until ST4 boss. I somehow missed the 1up on ST3, but made it to the loop 1 boss (died when he was down 50%ish). This was the PSX version too, which definitely seems harder than mame. Did not use any of the shitty inbuilt cheats, i.e. autofire or slowdown. I think next time I'm gonna stick with mame, despite yoko on 15". Save states are the only way to learn the order of every fucking tank to shoot.

toby - 82,174,190 - 2-3 - C-S (482 max hit)

I can finally chain stage 2 :righton: Died on the stage 1-3 boss so lost a few mil in bomb bonus. 72m after first loop. Replay available.
