    That's the video I saw... I now at least know what the Power Ups are...

    I have the PCB and as good as the PS2 port is it doesnt compare to the PCB, congrats

    As far as Karous goes, the shots that you really need to avoid are the circle shaped ones that cannot be canceled by your shot or sword. All shots except for big laser beams can be canceled by the shield. And of course the d.f.s. protects you from everything. That help any?

    Just make sure you level up that sword the most.

    I've no room for a cab either-->supergun hooked up to VGA monitor or a small Sony PVM. Used PVMs are pretty common on eBay--just make sure you get the right kind.

    The fastest, easiest way is to only use the sword to attack enimies. What I like to do is build up my D.F.S. and when I activate it I just put my ship on top of a large enemy and only use my sword while the D.F.S. is active. It causes big damage and quick leveling up. Son of a bitch this game rocks so hard.

    Yes. Button 4 is the weapon change button, and you need to change your weapons throughout the game if you want any hope of scoring well or beating the game.
    Button 3 is the rapid fire shot. Too bad they didn't give you the different control options like in Galuda 2, as mapping rapid fire to Button 4 for people with 3 buttons setups would be ideal. I rarely use the rapid fire button, could easily play without it or just tap the A button when needed.

    Yeah, I do the same with EspGaluda II. I just don't map button D. Don't need it really. Are there any other shmups that absolutely require 4 buttons? Just curious because I'll be using a 3-button only control panel.

    How are you doing with DoDonpachi Dai Ou Jou? Having a hard time? I'm planning on getting the PCB pretty soon along with a few other shmups.

    On topic: I'm currently playing DoDonPachi on my Saturn. I suck. I can barely get to the second boss with 1 credit.

    i did the popular NES sleeve mod, except the NES sleeve was too thick and wasn't working well for me, so I used some thin plastic from a baseball card sleeve and coated it with scotch tape on both sides to give it a little more thickness. Works great. It wasn't difficult. Just be sure to have canned air.

    thanks for that response. I may get another one some time when I get bored of my GB micro.



    As for shooters, I'm hoping some will have arrived in the mail today. I've got my fingers crossed (X (only not thumbs))
