I know I can do better. Last time I booted this little boy up was pre-Covid.

C'mon guys! Let's shoot some bullets!

He's just living in the past, but yeah, this thread is going to confuse some.

For Xbox, settings for difficulty are "Normal" or "Arcade"?

I'm assuming "Arcade", which one did you use?

Is the Raiden Legacy port on Steam okay to play?
I don't know the version, but judging by a quick google search it seems to be the same. I think we can include it.

PS- Sorry for the thread title mistake :D

Anyone have some tips for medal chaining? I feel like i get the medal pretty decently sized and then somehow end up collecting it by accident and having to start over. The mrdal's movements seem random as well so it's not like i cn reliably guide it to collect the other medals

I feel like anyone in Europe is morally obligated to hack a 360 with Raiden Fighters Aces, after the game kept getting pushed back and just failed to release time after time in an endless cycle of death. :lolz:

It's possible to get it on the first stage. It'll require some nerve and patience at first.

Kill quickly the first wave of 2 big planes. DO NOT grab the medals untill you get the Slave (power ups ok).

Try to kill quickly the other plane that drop an "S"(slave). Grab that S quickly. It will now attract the medals.

Then if you know +- the Patterns on where the enemies will show, swing your ship from side to side to clear the most guys and get the medals.

The big tanks will drop multiple medals.

If you do it right, you shall get the final medal (giant purple one) by the first boss. If you missed some medals, you will find a few small tanks that will drop medals.

There's also a way to grab a lot of medals in the first boss area which is to find the Micus. Jeep firing at it to reveal lots of medals. Unfortunately, I cant find it all the time.

Then, on the beginning of the 2nd stage, do not collect medals untill you get to see a big explosion. That will unlock the golden medals at 10k each. They will multiply up to 100k each as far as I know.

It happened to me that the value of the medals dropped,but I guess it was due to having lost a Slave or to have used bombs. I'm not sure, but they kept scoring up again.

It's easier said than done. I happen to restart very often on the first stage due to missing a medal, which is frustrating as hell.

Hope it helps.

BTW... it's not mentionned on the first post so I should ask.

Is it OK to do a run with the extra hidden chars (such as the Fairy) ? I like the spreadshot a lot lol.

I can't see anything on the web score wise, BUT, the hitbox is greatly reduced, so i would say we should let them out of the scoring table:
