I will not die until I achieve something. Even though the ideal is high, I never give in. Therefore, I never die with regrets.

My Final Thoughts: I love the game so much, I love the look, the feel, the music....everything. BUT.....This game pisses me off to no end lmao. I find hitboxes and damage inconsistent in multiple areas. Two good examples are the stage 2 eyeball boss, and the spiders on the final stage. There are times in stage 2 boss that I kill him in like 6 hits, and you know it's a hit because it makes an audible sound and flashes. Other times it takes me 9 hits! And those damn spiders on the final stage man......sometimes a charge shot wipes them out, sometimes it kills none, or 1 or 2 of em. It's infuriating lol. Still a great game all around, just very frustrating at times. I'm glad to be done lol.

I truly think I'm capable of a no miss of this given a bit more time (I should have started at the beginning of November lol). I may come back to it at some point and go for the 2-All and no miss.

Congrats Blur! Glad I caught the final couple stages on stream.

My best score to date is 605,130.

After a clear with the shadow force:
-The shadow force does more damage than the round force. (It seems like the cyclone force does damage comparable to the shadow force.)
-I think MetalFRO was right here:

The Shadow Force is interesting, but I think it might be one of those things you use when you've beat the game and want to go through it again and give yourself a challenge
-The second loop seems super cool!
-The second tier charges (both BEAM and HYPER) do a lot to help recoveries. But, because they are so useful, they dilute the difference between the force pods. The charges are a kind of lowest common denominator to get through anything, regardless of which force pod you picked.
-I'm gonna go get a cyclone force clear before moving on. :b

Was awesome to have you in the stream today man, thanks for dropping by! And I agree that 2nd loop seems like a blast! Let me know if you stream any of your attempts, I'd love to watch!

Nice work BlurSTG!!!

I didn't get to play much the second half of the month. But, I was able to get to Stage 3 on one credit and able to credit feed to Stage 5.

I was able to get appreciate R-Type games more this month after playing this one. I didn't really care for the series from what I played before. However, I think I adjusted my expectations going in knowing this series is not fast paced or a bullet hell type of game. I found some fun in treating this game as almost a side scrolling puzzle game where the objective was making it from one checkpoint to another. I'll definitely come back the series at some point. I've been meaning to try out R-Type Final (the first one) since I hear good things.

Peace y'all!

I'm still plugging away. I've finally got home after decamping for the second half of November for some family time, which means I'm finally playing the Super Famicom cartridge I bought instead of the Raspberry Pi. The SNES controller handles much differently than the Retrobit Saturn pad I was playing on. Much better ship control, but the buttons are farther apart and taking some adjusting. But! In my first run on cart + SNES + CRT I got about a 10cc and it was pretty breezy, hence why I want to keep trying. Hoping for some gains this week as I keep the memorization fresh in my head. I got all the way to the 5th stage on my first credit.

I've noticed how good the stars in stage 1, and here on the continue screen, look on a CRT.

Woo! I got a 1CC with a score of 612,910.

I was able to get much finer movement once I switched to the SNES and its controller.

Haha, nice. I'd still like to do it legit at some point, but the precision and memorization required are a tall order.
