It handles like a cow but it doesn't matter if you nuke them all in one shot.

>>21097457
Even a cow handles better than it does. Its only good aspect is that it is massively unga.
>>
>>21098715
They really got max seethe after losing the Prototype Cerberus. Since after that they just needed more unga bunga.

Isn't Strike Bomber able to do the same even though they nerfed the Mega Wave Cannon in Final 2

>tout that the cerb is super powerful and shit
>forgot to give it a proper wavecanon so it cant escape bydospace
>something even a fucking POW armor could do
I would be mad too
>>
>>21099759
They lost the Prototype because they never bothered to give it a decent wavecannon. And this was AFTER hyping it up as something absurdly and ludicrously powerful compared to any ship at the time. Of course they'd seethe.
>>
>>21101285
>>21099943
I dunno the wave cannon tore through pretty much everything ELSE in Delta except that one issue. And the Anchor Force is just bullshit strong as it just trivialized everything, anchor on and just go full defensive and either the boss dies or you get full Dose and you could drop a dose nuke on the boss.

At least the Hades should have been able to do the job Charon was just obsession at this point.

Lets create an INTERDIMENSIONAL fighter without the means to get out of alternate dimensions! Nothing can go wrong! Lets also pump it full of bydo stuff to make it even better!

I mean if anything the plan was probably to use a DOSE attack to break through the walls in emergency situations or even just detonate the Anchor Force an last ditch effort
Remember this is before R-Type 2 on the timeline and apparently might be the first time they lost a Force without the ship it belonged being destroyed first.

Also the tech that the Proto R-13 had for Cyber Connector was advanced enough that the Warhead needed it. Actually thinking about it the R-9C's requirement of an Angel Pac was tied towards just having to dump as much raw firepower and overall performance into the Warhead as humanly possible even if it required removing most of the humanity from the human.

The loss of the Cerberus had ripples man...

>>21103843
Pretty sure what was left of him was long dead and what was left was just pure overgrowth over the controls.
>>
>>21104328
>Pretty sure what was left of him was long dead and what was left was just pure overgrowth over the controls.
The much darker idea would've been that the Bydo were using his body to control the Cerberus when we saw it in Final.
>>
>>21103818
Damn Bydo, invading other universes!
>>
>>21104668
Its canon that they do that on the regular.
>>
>>21104527
Oh it's probably that his corpse if anything is being directly puppeted. We saw that in Image Fight 2 with the Boonies controlling that dead OF-1's pilot as a puppet to fire on the main character in one of the cutscenes.
>>
Why does r-type have so much thought put into its lore even back when it was new?
>>
>>21105363
This series is fucked up and I love it. Especially starting at Delta.
>>
>>21105758
So with QT-Cat was it the capturing ship or the R-9 it had within?

>>21105397
It's the great mystery of the era. Even Gradius got a ton of lore back in the day
>>
>>21093555
I love Warrick Inc ships.
>>
>>21105798
What I'm more frightened to know is what the fuck happened between the destruction of QT-Cat and when we head back to our base in stage 6.
>>

>>21106042
That's the question is what caused the horrific trip to even happen and what happened there. did QT-Cat going boom leave some sort of dimensional anchor to happen and pull the pilots into a pocket dimension where it was more psycoresponsive resulting in the Stage 5 and the boss rush?
This would imply that if I had to guess the Delta's pilot is the same as the Arrowhead's one in R-Type 1 since where else are those damaged Bydo coming from?
I doubt it's coming from the R-10's or R-13's pilots and I'm pretty sure the playable POW armor's a non-canon Easter egg route.
So it just leaves the Delta for that source.

I'm still not sure about one thing. Did we ever get confirmation that the Prototype/Early Production R-9 being an Angel Pac user always being a two seater during R-type 1. Dragonfly shows it being a two seater (where by the time of Final it's the R-9A (Late) where it's a single seat ship with the standard Wave Cannon.

I'm just not sure when Angel Pac tech was fully developed since it seems to first show up with the R-9C.
>>
>>21106794
When was this announced?

>>21107294
Speaking of that R-9A was it it the one that came back from R-Type 1 or just some rando they saved?
>>
>>21107693
Pretty certain Delta stage 6 was announced as one of the DLC packs.
>>
>>21110238
Might as well just add every R-Type level at this point.
>>
>>21110552
I mean, I'm pretty certain that's the plan.
>>
>>21113125
Just wish they would add more launch sequences...

>>21105208
It is, but they really need to be put on a leash.

I could see a Bydo "skin" for when you're fighting them, but a Bydo-only craft that's R-fighter-themed would probably fall into the loop of people pining after it, especially since DLC has always been on the table with Final 2.

The Digitalius series are complete and utter junkies needing their fix or just having some really fucked up withdrawal symptoms.

>>21129291
I always imagined the Force units have limited sentience, and while normal R-Fighters are just machines the Rubicon line allows feedback from the force to the pilot through the fighter. In a sense the Force's personality would be the R-Fighter's personality due to umbellical chord nonsense
>>
>>21130137
Well the way some forces acted when faced with a bydo core seems to suggest there is something there.
>>
>>
>>21129306
If it's got a B-series ship yea it's alive and probably knows you by your using the cyber connectors to connect to it. It probably knows you more than any other human being ever could know after a while.
After all the connection does go both ways as you're getting sensory data pumped into your mind to improve performance. And with a B-series ship you're being fed what the ship is literally seeing but translated in a way that the human mind can process it.

Your ship is listening to your thoughts and acting to best perform them.
As it was in Firefox to use the ship's system to its fullest you must THINK the commands.
And when you're connected you probably can hear the ship talking back to you.

Any ship with a high enough Bydo coefficient is probably sentient to some degree. So yes, your ship knows what you've been jacking it to.

Although the Ragnarok MP and Ragnarok II don't have the issue of the hull ship superheating after using the Hyper Wave Cannon. So probably had to tone down some features to make it safe for regular humans, just like how they improved the Warhead so regular people could use it.

One thing I always wondered, with just how the Bydo work. How do they just not take over Earth with ease? Does humanity have some kind of counter that kind of works so the Bydo dont absorb them out of the blue?

The Fort Geirrod Siege sucks as the GZRA. Each entryway is heavily defended. Principalities lurk in the corridors with their bullshit flame cannons, snipers litter the outside perimeter and there's a fuckimg Heimdal just chilling in the lower entryway. I found out that there's another way to enter through its soft underbelly and rammed all my units through that chokepoint. Was barely able to liberate the facility with 1 turn left on the clock.

A lot of it feels like it's being done entirely out of spite and wanting to make humanity suffer. There's killing everyone and then doing it personally.
Dobby keeps coming back entirely out of spite (and keeps getting stuck in the strangest places) because he REALLY REALLY hates the R-series ships.

>Wouldnt basically everything be super broken?

Maybe, if you followed the source material very closely, but you can do a lot with mechanics and balancing. Wave cannons on fighters could be moderated by making them special abilities that force the player to manually-select targets (the cooldown can be an inversion of the charge-up.)
Force modules would be an interesting challenge, the game allows external latch points, plus you can control which 'families' of units can dock or latch.
I suppose it all depends on how you interpret the background details and information from games.

Dont forget about the different lasers for each craft...unless you just use the reds for em

What's your flagship of choice?
Mine's the Jormungandr so I can send in stronger ships without worrying about losing.

Jormungandr and Nozari are the only based choices, really. Even Hildisvini isn't worth it simply for lack of decoy function.

Homeworld lets you specify against which type(s) of targets a unit can use its weapons, so you could just have red as an anti-ship weapon, for example.
The issue is how to represent them. The Arrowhead's reflection and air-to-ground lasers do depend quite a lot on terrain to get maximum function (I know Tactics has the former bounce off the edges of the screen and the latter just performs 90° turns.)
Possibly you could have the reflection spawn a less-accurate copy of itself on impact.
Things, like the Albatross' yellow tentacle weapon probably wouldn't even be practical (to implement or use in gameplay.)

>>
You think an iron-man/nuzlocke challenge would work for Tactics?
>>
>>21153692
Maybe? You can go back and play old levels for more resources to pump up your fleet so you could easily cheese such a run.

>>21146646
Honestly, better that then being trapped fully aware in Bydo Hell.

Easy mode
>ships lost are considered perma dead
>can go back earlier levels to grind resources
>can exit levels any time
Hard mode
>squads killed in combat are dead and can't be used
>can't go back to previous levels
What do you think?
>>
>>21153929
There are not many variables to the tactics games so once you know what to expect you can just play basically perfect.
>>
>>21152500
It's skill checking and filtering again.

I need to get back to my R-type TTRPG that I was working on at some point.
>>
>>21156031
How does that work?
>>
>>21156492
I based it more off tactics and stuff. small scale d6 dice. Still need to stat out hte vast majority of things.

Heh.

Since R-Type is starting to become more of a common topic around here. Do you think we should start compounding info about the series for anyone interested? It's a bit fragmented ya know and the wiki is a bit of a mess.
>>
>>21158964
I'd love to have acces to knowledge of the series for my tabletop rpg rendition of it. I still don't know much about it at all even after looking over chunks of the wiki.

No

Has anyone here ever heard In The Hunt's PS1 soundtrack? Cause it's rather different from the arcade version.
>>
>>21159665
Different how? Never played either but i do find it funny how the sub's wave cannon is one huge yamato reference and is claimed to be able to destroy the solar system if it wasnt for the limiters.

Even EARLIER. They were in the Dragonfly/Illegal Operation book and that was in 1991!

Hell Sunday Strike was even in there!

R-3/R-5/R-7 are all there too. Hell we discover that humanity had a bunch of non TL-series Mecha units that were taken over beyond the famous Gains series

Is that supposed to be a early design of R-11A Future World on the left?

so for my tabletop I know where to start statting human stuff, with stuff like the standard arrowhead, but where the fuck do I start with the Bydo?

anywhere

>>21166381
the Bydo fighters

Litteraly anything can be a bydo. Even walls, yes, walls. They can consume anything and turn it into more bydo.

Everything can be Bydo. Assume that all the shit in a given area that is not an R-Fighter is Bydo.

Yes I know everything can be bydo I mean't to stat out their 'units' as it would be. Should I start at the fighters or what do you think their 'base line' unit should be.
>>
>>21171909
Every grunt from the first level of R-Type. Also dont forget that Image Fight is part of the R-Type universe as well
>>
>>21172011

Not just Image Fight, but also Gallop and X-Multiply.
>>
>>21172190
Basically everything Irem made is part of R-Type. Its crazy how it all just fits.

So with Z3.0 I gotta ask is there really a difference with meltcraft between being the ship and being the 'force' as we see both in 'droplet' form before they take on their forms and it's pretty much indistinguishable.
At least with Metallic Dawn series we have one ship having the cockpit with the fleshie thing driving it and the force pod being entirely nanomachines.
>>
>>21172190
I have not heard or touched any of those, a big archive of stuff and info would be great.
>>
>>21172488
Gallop's an horizontal shooter arcade game where you're using an Police R-11B Peacemaker and dealing with an incident involving out of control AI driven vehicles and "Mad Cars"
Turns out this is occurring during R-Type Delta and said cop is actually fighting off part of the Bydo invasion while the Delta team is fighting off the main Bydo force, it was confirmed to be in Continuity with the Illegal Operation book
>>
>>21172502
That's really neat, also Illegal operation book? is that a setting book for R-type?
>>
>>21173766
To an extent but it doesnt have the most up to date info due to it being from the 90s

Never heard of Metalstorm, is it good?

The Green Inferno? Yea it's a dick like that.

Only reason why we won't get a tribute stage to that game is the gameplay being very focused around the gravity flip mechanic
