I don't think I'll buy this one as I have no desire to play DOJ ever again. But I'm sure it'll be great. I'm hoping a new SDOJ home port follows in 2024, maybe by City Connection. Their Akai Katana and DS/DSMBL ports are great.

By the time a new Ibara port appears I'll probably be too old to play these games. :laugh:

I'm just catching up on the news.  I heard about the port but it didn't trigger a great deal of excitement.  I'll buy it of course, but meh.

I was going to reply to the earlier posts that were discussing Ibara, but they are old at this point.  I still can't believe I'll have to be buried with my Ibara PCBs, apparently.

980mil in Espgaluda 2's 360 Mode with Ageha, by LYX:

I think this is the WR in 360 Mode (which does not have the Arcade game's tutorial glitch that allows you to score about 5mil more in ST1). It's also a no-miss clear!

I did the TGA test in the extended test menu. It took awhile, but I found one frame of one sprite that was causing the previous issue. In frame 01E4=228, I found the glitch:

All the other frames of this sprite are fine, for example 01DA=218:

However, after doing this test I played again and still didn't see the glitch on the sprite in-game. Maybe the game is not loading that glitched frame, it's just skipping it? That's the only thing I can think of.

No other glitches were found in any other sprites, thankfully.

I asked about this on the Arcade-Projects forum and received some helpful replies from buffi and rtw:

Neither is sure exactly what happened in the case of my PCB, but they post some interesting possibilities.

I played 3 more credits. Still no sign of this previous glitch.

I've listed it for sale in the market forum at a discounted price, because I can't guarantee the glitch won't return. But I've tested it enough today to be satisfied that the glitch is not currently present.

EDIT: Tested 3 more credits, including one on the 2P side in case that made any difference. Still no glitch!

In mid-June I noticed (in a few credits) an apparent graphical glitch on the right side of one ship sprite in Stage 2, after the midboss. This sprite does not occur anywhere else in the game, and the whole section only lasts about 20 seconds. A very minor "glitch" IMO. Here is a video I took of it back then:

After noticing this apparent glitch I put the PCB away and I didn't play it again until today. Much to my shock (and delight) this glitch seems to have disappeared!! I played two credits to confirm, and both times it was nowhere to be seen. Here is a video I took today:

So how did this PCB fix itself? Some built-in Yagawa error-correction when rebooting the PCB and loading the EEPROM?

Anyway, I will put this up for sale here soon.
