RGC - 39,927,180 1-6 - C-S (204 max hit)

Hilarious run using Mame32 Plus! 0.99 (inp file saved)

Can someone tell me the best version for recording inp files in future? 0.99 seems to have save states and cheat options (not that I would use them).

It was all going so well until stage 5, then it just turned into one of "those" runs. Looking at the replay, I was doing some farily silky dodging on all 6 stages, interspersed with ramming into rogue bullets that I'd already spotted and planned my path around. You know that feeling when you start getting ahead of yourself; the simplest shit catches you out while the complex is (dare I say) a breeze? Well it was like that. I was too in the zone. The best bit was my tactical not-bomb, where I purposely waited til I was overwhelmed, then prodded the surface between buttons on my HRAP. It was a case of laugh or cry. :whyioughtta:

Due to Kaneda's great score, I've chosen him to pick the game we'll play for July. So please let us know your choice by July 1st, Kaneda. Remember, you can make it as specific (particular mode and/or particular ship/shot type) or broad as you like.

Busy... too busy to devote time to this game.  It deserves way more than a month.
One day... just not any time soon.

I'm annoyed we ran out of time on this one -- I'm ready for a 50m+ score, just haven't had the time to sit down and string it together. More consistently chaining stage 2 now with around 475max hit. Started practicing chaining stage 4 the other night..that's pretty tough.
