PCB / Muchi Muchi Pork PCB fixed itself?
« Last post by EOJ on August 25, 2023, 07:11:22 PM »
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.

Starting July 29, 2024, the Microsoft Store on Xbox 360 and on marketplace‌.xbox.‌com will no longer be supporting purchases. This includes games, trials, add-ons, avatar items, apps, gamerpics, game trailers, and videos. It also includes purchases like gamertag changes on Xbox 360, Xbox Live Gold subscriptions, in-game purchases, and Movies & TV. Games and content purchased before that date will still play as intended and content redownloads will continue to be supported for owned content.

If you intend to redeem any codes for Xbox 360 content via your Xbox 360 console, then you will need to redeem them to your account before July 29, 2024. After that date, they may no longer be redeemable. Gift cards and subscription cards will not be impacted.

If you want to buy any digital games or DLC that is not BC with current Xbox consoles, the countdown is on!

Thanks, think I'll stick with 360 for all of them even as a new player- feels bad to have to have a terrible version of II tacked onto the PS4 release and I still get a physical release for the shelf on the 360 (complete with hilariously cringey marketing blurbs (that reflect the direction Cave themselves went in to appeal to the Japanese market)).
DS is pretty even between PS4 and X360. I haven't played the Switch version, but the extra lag there knocks it out of contention (this is why I don't buy Switch STGs in general).
DSMBL is better on PS4 than the X360, due to the slightly more accurate slowdown replication.
DSII is still best on the X360. The PS4 version is rather poor. Outside of the lag issue the Switch port is apparently pretty close to the X360 version, but not perfect.

Basically, if I want to play DS or DSMBL I'll probably go with my PS4 copy (though I am happy playing the X360 ports as well). If I want to play DSII I'll play my X360 copy.
Considering it's been like a year and a half I guess no fixes are coming for DeathSmiles II on the PS4?

So for the best versions, do you still have:
DS - Xbox 360/Switch/PS4 (seems very similar for all of them)
DSMBL - PS4 (Switch/360 lacking slowdown?)
DSII - Xbox 360 (still better than the Switch version of I & II?  PS4 is apparently garbage)

I don't have a way to use my stick on Switch and generally don't buy shmups there because of the additional input lag...  But it seems like if you're buying the I & II bundle it might as well be on the Switch so II is at least somewhat playable?  PS4 version is still cheaper than a disc copy of Deathsmiles on 360 so I guess it's still worth a buy on sale but wow how do you mess up one of your release versions that badly?

Oh wait, curse my need for achievements.  I would be subjected to lots of II if I bought the PS4 version...
