What are fullchan's favourite shmups?

What are the mechanics that make you shit blood?

Are you a scrub that's never 1cc'd a single fucking thing?

I've been playing Psikyo's catalogue relentlessly lately. Not much progress with anything but Sengoku Aces, but tonnes of fun has been had.

>The game AI is the most interesting aspect of Zanac and will make every game experience different due to it's sophistication. The AI adapts to many aspects of the player, for example what weapons the player has and what level they are. Most importantly, if the player fires more, the AI reacts by sending more powerful enemies. The AI is designed to exploit any potential weakness in the player's current weapons and also how much of a threat the player presents due to the amount of shots fired and the power of the current weapons. This means that very few things are static in the game. The AI's difficulty can be lowered under several conditions, one being the destruction of a SART, a type of enemy that occasionally files along the sides of the screen then darts back up. On that note, the AI reacts very violently on the use of the Field Shutter and will send out many waves of enemies in an attempt to destroy the shield and the player.

How common was this kind of TECHNOLOGY in retro shumps?

dynamic ai/difficulty (rank)? pretty common..
it usually comes in the form of not dying, not collecting surplus power-ups (or power-ups period, as in soukyuugurentai), not bombing, killing too many enemies, etc.

Rather than ask you to list them, as that would probably be pretty dull for everyone involved: what was the most difficult for you to clear? Was it also the most satisfying to bust?

Have you cleared them all via emulator, or some in the arcade?

I've always loved shmups but to get good at them you need to memorize tons of shit over a long period of time. And somehow, she is actually secretly the best scorer in sonic wangs and I think I'm the first even before the japanese to realize it. She's the fastest and her bomb stops time allowing you to collect medals at max value.

Yes, although the scoring routes don't feel as fun anymore.

How many of you who are actually half decent at shmups feel that, at some point, "getting good" becomes too much of a chore and diminishes your love for the game? Or is the feeling of achievement in perfecting a run ultimately what makes the genre fun for you?

>My arcades never had shmups in them…

I never really cared for the genre a whole lot back when they were more plentiful. So I feel like while I definitely saved loadsa emone, I lost out on experiences that guys like you never even had a chance at…

In the time I've been playing I could've learned electrical engineering or something. It's seriously a huge waste of time to go for anything beyond a 1cc or friendly competition.

Out of the dozens (probably 100+) of shmups I've played, the only ones that could hold my attention for more than 10 minutes were Super R-Type, Touhou (mostly PCB and IN), PowerManga and Chromium BSU. And the latter 2 only due to needing some diversion during long nights of writing Linux programs.

I'm kind of new to retro stuff, but I've run into a problem with a certain game and this is the best place to ask.

I got Lightening Force (Thunder Force IV) recently and I would like to play it, but every time I start a level (and when I start level select), it's as though the dpad was glued down right. Other games work fine and I tested the game in the store I bought it from, so I know it works good.

The only thing I can think it might be is my controller, but I only have one at the moment so I can't quite test that out very well. I have tried starting levels and unplugging the controller just before they begin, but the result was the same in that my ship would just fly straight to the edge of the screen.

Any ideas?

Sounds like it's your controller, bub. I haven't played LF IV in ages - are there any options screens where it can bug out? It'd be mighty strange if it was only doing it during levels.
